About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This wonderful villa is situated in a truly spectacular location, directly across the temple of Poseidon in Sounio and 5 minutes away from a charming sand and pebble beach. Within the 8 acres of our land there is beautiful olive grove, pistachio trees, a vegetable garden and an abundance of various mediterranean flowers and fruiting trees.

The villa offers privacy as there are no close by neighbors and has stunning uninterrupted views from east to west. Depending on which veranda or room you wish to sit you will have the chance to admire the temple, the Aegean sea, the hill behind the house and the serene olive grove. All verandas are smothered in thriving lush bugainvillea and jasmine plants. The front veranda is protected from the sun and breeze and has an extra electrical awning that allows you to sit there all day. The large table can easily accommodate ten people and the build sofa is ideal for lounging and napping in the daytime. From here you can look over at the sea and admire the temple even at nighttime when it is all lit up. In the corner of the front veranda there is a lovely spot with views of the grove, the sea in the background and the temple on the left. This is the perfect spot for afternoon coffees and sundowners as from here you can watch the sun dive into the Aegean. Last but not least the veranda on the northwest side of the house is cool and breezy and has also great views to the grove, temple and sea. This veranda has a comfortable lounge under a bamboo cane roof and a dining table with easy access to the kitchen, suitable for the hotter days of the summer as it benefits from the northerly breeze.

The house has been recently renovated and has wooden floors throughout. There is lots of closet space and big windows in every room. The living room and dining room are airy, bright and have views to the garden and the sea. There are three built couches in the living room that if necessary double as beds. The kitchen is fully equipped, newly refurbished with brand new appliances and all sorts of gadgets.

The master bedroom faces south to the grove and the sea. You can practically see the temple of Poseidon while lying on the double bed and step out on the veranda and enjoy your breakfast under the almond tree. The bedroom has an en suite jacuzzi bathroom with a view to the garden. The second large bedroom on the north west side is very cool and has a nice view to the sea and the greenery of the garden. It has a double bed a big working space and a bathroom with a stylish shower. The third bedroom can be used as a single or double and also has a big desk and views to the olive grove and to the hill.

Stunningly beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

I can't think of a better location to base a holiday in Attica than at Eleni's house in Sounio. It was the perfect place for us to stay. The house had everything needed practically speaking, it was beautifully funished, decorated and adorned with artworks, had lots of space in which to lose yourself from the family, peacefully set among the olive groves. We couldn't have been more relaxed. And the view of the Temple of Poseidon from the veranda, both day and night, added it's own ancient magic. The beach, set in a small bay just a few minutes walk away, was lovely for relaxing, bathing, snorkeling, or taking snaps of the family playing in the sea with the Temple as a backdrop. And there were so many lovely quiet beaches and coves nearby along the coast to discover and explore. Thank you Eleni for making our holiday such a memorable experience.

It was a dream

  • 4 of 5

This house was just amazing. So beautiful, so close to the beach, so lonely in the olive grove.

We really enjoyed our stay, it was the perfect place to come down. Especially due to the number of things u could do around the house: nothing, then relax. If you want to go shopping, you better go by car, or scooter or Cab to Lavrion. There you will find everything you need, including car and scooter rental (Aqua marine Olympic park), restaurants etc.

there are also to really nice fish taverna just 5 minutes walking from the house. The owner of the house are really, really nice. I hope u will enjoy you stay as much as we did.

One star is missing, because of the mattress in the master bedroom, it's way to soft.

Better Than the Description & the Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The listing compared to our actual experience - EXCEEDED our expectations! The home was the perfect size for our family of 8! The view of the Temple, cape & olive grove were incredible. The cool breeze from the opened windows was ideal in the summer heat. The many inviting sitting options throughout the home was fantastic. Sitting under the grapevine shaded side yard terrace or the front porch with the ceiling fan was SO relaxing. Walking distance to beaches & close to 2 small charming towns with delicious restaurants & grocery stores was SO convenient. The Manager was kind to provide all the necessary supplies to make our stay comfortable and plus leave a basket full of food & local fresh pastries on the table & beverages in the fridge for our 1st day. The property left a wonderful impression in our hearts to last a lifetime. We will definitely stay again. :-)

Lumineux !

  • 5 of 5

Idéalement située en vue du temple de Poséidon au Cap Sounion, cette belle villa, entourée d'oliviers est très agréable. Une petite plage caillouteuse quasiment privée est à 5 minutes de marche. Une autre, de sable, est à 10 minutes de marche, et accessible en voiture automobile. Si on le souhaite, on peut louer matelas et parasols à l'hôtel Aegean, installé sur cette plage. Au même endroit se trouvent deux restaurants, tous deux de bonne qualité, avec vue sur le temple. La ville de Lavrio, à 10 km de là, offre multitude de restaurants, de commerces. Un marché riche en produits locaux se tient tous les jeudis.

Les propriétaires de la maison sont charmants et parlent notamment français et anglais. Cette confortable maison est vraiment agréable à vivre, conforme à la description et aux photographies. La proximité d'Athènes et de l'aéroport est pratique. Nous avons passé un bon moment en septembre, en saison creuse, avec un temps superbe.

A wonderful house in a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The house is really beautiful: very spacious, perfectly equipped, fresh and tastefully furnished. It is surrounded by a beautiful garden and you can taste some figues, grapes or almonds directly from the tree. The view is really charming: you can see the sea and the fantastic temple of Poseidon and, of course, the magic starry sky of Greece. The location is perfect, so close to Athens, but very secluded at the same time. There are a lot of beaches nearby and the closest one is just 5 minutes walking and offers you the chance of swimming under the temple: so special! The village of Lavrio (15 min driving) offers you any kind of service. The owners are special people, always available. We strongly recommend a holiday in this house, that will be in our heart for long time.

St Peter
Car: recommended

On the rocky peninsula that projects into the sea at the south-east tip of Attica, the Athenians built sanctuaries to their two most important deities: Poseidon and Athena. A visit to the ruins of the temple of Poseidon is a must, especially during sunset when the heat of the day has subsided and the sun dives into the Aegean and the horizon is filled with spectacular colors.

The beaches

St Peter.

The closest beach has sand and small round pebbles in parts is a 5 minute walk from the house. It is quiet and picturesque and well protected from northerly winds that prevail in the area during summertime. It has a wonderful view of the temple and the open Aegean sea.

Hotel Aegeon beach.

This is an organized sandy beach directly beneath the temple of Poseidon and benefits from the hotel’s facilities (beach bar, showers, restaurants). Access is free but there are charges for umbrellas and deck chairs. There are also a few tavernas nearby. This one is about 15 minutes walk away.

Legrena beaches

The village of Legrena is about 5 minutes drive away and has 4 truly wonderful successive wide sand beaches with no facilities and plenty of space and clear waters.


• Sounio is 37 km away from Eleftherios Venizelos International airport and there are buses operating on this route

• The distance from the centre of Athens to Sounio is about 60 km and there are regular bus services that take two routes: first one through Mesogeia via Attiki Odos (motorway) and the second is by the coast.

• Lavrion, the closest town is 9 km away, is a busy but quaint port and has banks, restaurants, cafes, bars, post office, medical centre, various rental services ranging from cars to diving and sailing gear and a complete and lively market.
