Family holiday in Greece
The villa has a great location: easy access from the airport and still in the countryside with its tranquility and seafront location. In the neighborhood we dined at many excellent restaurants . The unique and the world famous Temple of Poseidon is just 5 minutes drive from the villa. We drove to Athens to make some shopping and visit museums and the route was easy and took just a little ovet an hour. Thr owner was very helpful and answered immediately to us. The villa was dashing with a world-class swmming pool. We have rented villas in the Mediterranian but never had a pool like this !
Amazing Villa highly recommended.
Just recently experienced perfect family vacation at Villa Sunio. House with private pool is located on the cliff with magnificent panoramic sea view. Villa’s main advantage is huge swimming pool 20x10m with sea water, outside showers, WC and even changing rooms. House is cozy and comfortable for 5 people, equipped with all necessary for comfortable living. But we have spent almost all the time outside enjoying sea view or swimming in the pool. Sea is easily accessible from the territory by the staircase. No sand beach, but coast territory is private with minimum people and equipped with all necessary, like benches, shower and even snorkeling equipment. Kind and polite staff lived in neighborhood and was always ready to assist.
Villa is located in 1 hour ride from Athens and we managed to have 4 trips in 15 days. Also there is some memorable sightseeing in close distance, for example Poseidon temple, ancient Thorikos amphitheater or National Park.
Currently whole family is experiencing pleasant nostalgia:)
Honestly I’d strongly recommend Villa Sunio for families, who are looking for unforgettable vacation near Athens.
Family vacation near Sounio
Overall this is a lovely, and very large property. The pool is amazing and the outdoor entertainment space is very large (eating, tennis, access to beach). It is less than an hour easy drive from Athens. The roads seemed quite quiet and no one really drives all that fast. Next door are a couple who help look after things if there are any problems, which is very helpful. A few quite nice tavernas are all within a very short driving distance (5-10 mins max) and also big supermarket in under 10 mins drive. The only downsides: 1. We stayed mid April, and for me the pool was too cold at this time(but that is my choice to come at this time of year, so not a fault of the property), I imagine in the summer the pool is a lovely temperature. 2. The shower is quite disappointing (small , and you really need 3 hands - to hold the shower and peel the shower curtain off you). Again, maybe in the summer the outdoor showers (which look very nice) are fine for this purpose. 3. A small thing, but worth noting given the stair case does not have hand rails it would not be appropriate for very young children. It was fine for our kids but a few years ago that could have caused us a problem. Overall, it is a lovely property and worth noting the owner was very friendly and responsive to all my questions before and during the stay.
The most beautiful place we have ever seen
I just cannot express myself enough as soon as we arrived we immediately realized the magnificence of this place. My wife and I could not believe our own eyes it is the most beautiful place we have ever seen. When we arrived, the owner was waiting on us he was very accommodating and explained the history of the property with a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean Sea. Great restaurants and shops five minutes away with friendly people at every place visited. We could not have ask for a more perfect vacation and we defiantly will go back again next year.
A slice of Paradise!
My family of 6 just spent an absolutely wonderful week at Villa Sounio. I would not have changed a thing. The view, the weather, the history, the area, the food, the people, the owners, and the caretakers of the property. We felt like we were staying with family (family that we like). The house is stunning and the views are simply breathtaking. Although we had several days with planned activities, we also spent several quiet days just enjoying the pool, the view, the semi private lake access. One of the owners, Alex helped us many times with ordering food, recommending restaurants and even dealing with the rental car company when our car broke down. Adonis, who is one of the property caretaker, drove us over an hour to the port to catch our ferry when the rental car broke down and also picked us up again.
The area provides for easy access to restaurants, bakeries, ports for renting or chartering boats, simple shopping a and the the Temple of Poseidon (which is stunning). The area is also not too far from visiting Athens or catching the ferry to one of the Islands (Hydra is a must see).
Reading the other reviews, it is clear that we are not the only ones with these opinions. I cannot compliment this Villa and the owners enough. We certainly hope to come back. Thank you for everything.
Owners were really nice and could not do enough for us.....we had 2 power cuts during our stay and they made sure we were ok and brought lights etc....
Very nice week, shame about the sun not coming out that much, but it was October...
1) In a 2 km distance from the residence , there is the fabulous temple of Poseidon. The temple of Poseidon at Sounion is one of the most important sanctuaries in Attica. Sporadic finds point to the conclusion that the site was inhabited in the prehistoric period. "Sounion Hiron" (temple of Sounion) is first mentioned in the Odyssey, as the place where Menelaos stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman, Phrontes Onetorides. The finds of the 7th century B.C. are numerous and proove the existence of organized cult on two points of the promontory: at the southern edge where the temenos of Poseidon was situated, and about 500 m. to the NE of it, where the sanctuary of Athena was established.
2) A couple kilometre away from the residence there is a perfect place for hiking, cycling or just admiring the greek nature. That is the Sounio National Park. The National Park of Sounio was founded in 1971. It lies on the southeastern edge of Attica, in the area which is commonly called Laureotiki and ends up at the cape of Sounio. It is comprised of about 4,000 hectares, of which the 500 are the nucleus of the park where the established order of conservation is absolute.
There is the pine forest of pinus halepensis which is the prevalent vegetation of the park was (and to a certain extent continues to be) the most extensive and well-preserved pine forest of eastern Attica. The overland section of the area is an example of a Mediterranean landscape.
3) Lavrion port is 10 km from Sounio area. Ferries to the cycladic islands depart daily from the port. So you can take the ferry for a daily trip to Kea or Kythnos island.
4) Car is not necessary but if you would like to explore the extended area it is recommended.
