About The Owner

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. I studied psychology and did my graduate and post graduate studies in Clinical Psychology in the U.S. where I spent a total of 13 years. My favourite hobbies are going on rides on my boat, swimming, fishing, water-skiing and playing tennis. I live in Athens and I am engaged in private practice as a psychotherapist.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Karystos

I bought the land in 2007, a 2 plots in a doctors association vacation area, following the recommendation of a colleague. I had been visiting the area on my boat frequently, visiting a smaller cluster of small , beautiful private islands known as Petalii accessible only by private boats. These islands are sometimes referred to as the " Greek Maldives" .I had the house built in 2010. The area enjoys plenty of beaches, is quiet even during busy months and very close to the town of Karystos .

What makes this house unique

It is only one and a half hours away from Athens or the airport thus making it very easy to visit. It has very regular ferry service particularly during the spring, summer, autumn months, and is very accessible, suitable even for one day trips. The house is located close to the beach and yet high enough to enjoy a view.

Situation exceptionnelle de cette maison en balcon sur la mer Egée, plein Ouest, donc une très belle vue sur les couchers de soleil. la maison est très agréable, silencieuse, , offre toute les commodités, avec un espace ouvert sur la terrasse d'un jardin exotique. Située sur les hauteurs de marmari et de son port, il y souvent une brise ou du vent, parfois un peu fort, qui permet de ne pas souffrir de la chaleur Nous avons passé 3 semaines très agréables, reposantes, avec un acceuil très chaleureux de la part de la propriétaire, Iphigenia. Le port de marmari reste très grec et traditionnel. Nous avons trouvé de nombreuses plages alentours, de criques diverses et variées qui ont gardé leur côté naturel. Laurence et Frédéric

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour et recommandons cette location
