An excellent place, full of character, to enjoy the best Greece offers: sea and countryside + Acropolis and Athens city center, all from a most convenient base.
It is located in a place looking like a far Aegean island, feeling like you are away from it all. You can't believe this place is only 50 km from down town Athens!
Acropolis, a World Class monument, its famous new museum, all major archaeological sites, the picturesque old Plaka and the modern city are at a little more than an hours reach, along with numerous cultural and recreational possibilities.
Schinias in Marathon where villa is located, is a top rated beach of Athens, boasting more than 6 km of sandy beach, with crystal clear and mostly calm waters, and a rare cone forest reaching to the water edge!
The Villa itself, is a rare example of traditional architecture, built with stones from its own land, in an inspired 'castle like' design.
The intended abudant use of natural and low treated materials, like stone, wood and iron, create a feeling of immediacy, comfort and inner relaxation in a way that few places can do.
It is tastefully decorated in a country but luxurious manner, with antiques, hand crafted wooden and iron furniture, that invite you to unwind in casualness comfort and style.
The house is built in the gated settlement of Judges & Attorneys.
It is positioned on the cliffs, 50 meters above the sea, providing privacy, and great views to the picturesque bay underneath and the Aegean sea.
Schinias, belongs to the municipality of Marathon, where the famous ancient battle took place and where the world renowned Marathon run originates.

With an inherent affection to Architecture, tradition and aesthetics, owners were set to make their dream vacation villa.
Michael purchased this Villa in 1996
Why Michael chose Marathonas
One of the joys of travelling abroad is to experience different places and feel the local culture. Architecture and tradition are important cultural parts of a country's culture, especially for travellers. So, having the opportunity to stay in a Villa which is a rare example of the vanishing local architectural forms, building materials, and inspired design, is an important advantage for many travellers. Universal and plain identity buidings, that you can be in any place in the world will add litlle to your Greek experience.
What makes this Villa unique
The Villa is located in a quite settlement, overlooking the sea and next to a 'top rated' sandy beach of 6km long with a rare cone forest in it's back reaching the water edge. You nave the option to enjoy the sea and nature as you wish as there are busy or isolated spots to choose from. Small villages or bigger cities and a lot of archaeological interest places are within easy reach for you to visit and spend your holidays interestingly. Besides, the city centre of Athens, is within an hours reach.

My family of thirteen adults stayed here in early May and although the photos of the property make it appear to be spacious and lovely, you cannot really appreciate it until you see it. Itbis a rambling, multilevel "castle" built by the owner and was over seven years in the making. It is stunning!
It was very well equipped with all appliances and dinnerware in the two full kitchens (and huge charcoal bbq space) and we prepared many meals and not once were we unable to find an appropriate bowl, pot, pan or utensil.
The views from the huge patio, logia, pool area are gorgeous.
Last, but nowhere nearly least was the truly exceptional attention the owner/manager lavished on us. Michael is the most responsive, considerate owner that we have ever dealt with and we have done many of these kinds of trips in Europe (15 and counting). He made our stay at Stone Castle Villa wonderful. He is a prince.
Great and quiet villa with terrific views
We spent the thanksgiving week for our family of 12 at the Stone Castle Villa. It is a very well maintained villa with great views of Aegean Sea. There were plenty of rooms and villa is very well designed. Since we were there November, it was cooler and we didn't use swimming pool. But it looked clean and well maintained.
Michael is an amazing host. He made our stay very comfortable and was able to respond to our requests via email very quickly.
One thing to keep in mind is that this on the see near Marathon. So it is about an hour from Athens by car. If you have not arranged for transportation or don't have a car, it is going to be very difficult. We had tour arranged by H.P. Tours so we didn't have any transportation issues.
The property is outstanding, sunrises over the sea are breath taking, access to Athens very conven.
The experience has been unparalleled in my travels, the facility, the location, and the host Michael are World Class. We hope to return again soon.
Magic stay at Stone Castle Villa
At first we were going to celebrate my partner on his 60s birthday but since we had been together for a long time without being married we decided to do both. So searching around on internet we found Stone Castle Villa and begun to make plans.
When we arrived at the house on the 19th we were very excited…and we was nearly blown away of how big the house was and how really warm and cozy it felt. Since we were 14 people we had the whole house and it was magic to live together for a week in the same place, bathing in the pool, going down to the cliffs from the house and snorkel. And in the evenings we cooked food together in food groups.
On the day of the marriage we got help, thanks to Michael’s advice, from www.dipnosofistirion.gr with the food, drinks, arrangements and serving staff so that all could just enjoy and celebrate. Everything went really smooth and we got married on the patio, next to the pool with lovely flower arrangements from the florist.
This is one of the most happy holidays I ever had, not only for that I had all my family around me, or that I got married or that my husband turned 60, but the house itself welcomed and embraced us in the most magnificent way.
Last but not the least I really have to praise Michael who really took a lot of his own time to advise us before our stay and continued doing so during the week, he really is passionate about his house and the surroundings. We can from bottom of our hart recommend a stay in his Stone Castle Villa
You will be "King of the Castle" here
