About Mr Nikos

Born one summer of the last century and grown up in Athens Greece'

As a former Navy officer I had the chance to step almost on every rock of the Aegean Archipelago and see the unique beauty of my Country. Later on the cruise ships I was lucky to do my service on "Celebrity Cruises" perhaps the most exceptional company on the cruise market ever. Today, I still live in Athens and I manage several rental villas.

Nowadays, almost everyone who has a summer house is able to rent it as a tourist accommodation and the web is overflowing of words like “low price, villa, luxury, spacious, next to the sea, etc...”

Fortunately, its way easier now for the travellers who they know what they’re looking for, to understand the differences between the “bargain, the reasonable & the irrational” asked fees.

That’s one of the reasons why at “Villa Scorpio” we don’t worry at all especially now, where competitiveness is much higher. Because it really worth’s the money you pay.

At first you may read our previous guests reviews (non fictions but real).

From all the self-catering properties on the tourist market, only few they have the “tourist accommodation exclusive sign” given by the Greek authorities (Ministry of Economy, Development and Tourism).

It will be probably said to you that it’s not necessary any longer for running a villa and yes, this is true. But think that the villas own the sign have been checked and approved officially.

So, you know for sure that at “Villa Scorpio” you’ll find everything what you agreed to. That what you see at the pictures on our advertisement it is real.

That there will be no surprises other than what you were expected to be far beyond that.

Our doors are open to welcome you to our home -your home- for unforgettable vacations.

Let us share the Greek hospitality with you & help to make your dream come true._

Mr Nikos purchased this villa in 2004

Why Mr Nikos chose Lavreotiki

It was a common dream of both my wife and me to build a house next to the sea. We were planning to move permanently and leave Athens city forever. You can feel that this house has been build with passion and personal care. It's a house with character surrounded by extreme positive energy as many of our guest said so far.

Nevertheless, life is tricky and usually plans are changing in a minute. So, we decided to rent our house. Bringing all my experience from the cruise ships and among my wife's affection for decoration and her deep knowledge of hospitality, our home became "Villa Scorpio".

It may be listed as self catering villa but I can assure you that it could be easily characterised as a private hotel.

From our side we can promise you that we will do everything is possible to make your vacations smooth and relaxed. We'll be on call 24/7 for anything you'd like to ask. We will support you to find and arrange from a daily visit to an historical place, to a scuba diving safari at the Aegean waters.

Why This Property? Just read our past guests reviews and you'll find the answer yourself. Don't forget to share it with us and the people who will come at the future.

What makes this villa unique

A Welcome traditional snack will be served to you upon your arrival to the house. Goods, such as fresh bread, coffees, teas, honey and marmalades, and much more are provided complimentary for your convenience.

Luxurious Holiday Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As someone who has travelled extensively, I was looking for somewhere luxurious and picturesque to take friends for my 40th Birthday Celebrations. Villa Scorpio exceeded any preconceptions I may have had from the photographs. It is a unique, secluded, beautiful home, built with great attention to detail. A private drive, stunning pool area, floor to ceiling windows and luxurious furnishings and fittings.

The layout of the villa made it easy to gather together as a group, or find some privacy too. The tastefully decorated bedrooms were spacious and well equipped. Everyone had their own bathroom facilities, some even a kitchenette. Two of the bedrooms opened onto the pool.The Master bedroom had its own jacuzzi bath and roof terrace, and with the patio doors open, you could lay in bed and listen to the sea! The kitchen was equipped with quality appliances, and fully stocked with all the food you could need. The pool was lit at night, which made it great to entertain outside. The views were stunning, truly a place to relax and recharge. I definately intend to return in the summer months and would find it very easy not to leave the villa!

Although secluded, it was convenient and easy to reach local sights, drive to the centre of Athens or to the Metro Station. It was a great location to escape back to after a hectic day of sightseeing.

Nikos and Dina, the owners, treated us like family. They met and guided us from the airport, provided us with travel and tourist advice and were at the end of the phone if we needed anything. They cooked us a delicious Greek dinner one night, and really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. They truly made our trip memorable.

I would highly recommend visiting this stunning rental location, you will not be dissappointed.

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in Villa Scorpio during June 2017. We were 6 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 pre-teens and one five-year-old looking for nice relaxing holiday in beautiful Greece. We chose Villa Scorpio because of the great reviews and the place was beyond all our expectations!

As soon as we drove through the main gates with very friendly Mr Nikos, the beautiful villa took our breath away before we even got inside the villa! Friendly Mr Nikos introduced all the area and rooms. Every bedroom has its own toilet/shower and provide good pricacy.

We had a chance to enjoy an amazing weather, the sun was shining all week and the pool area was definitely our favourite place to spend relaxing time together. The private rocky beach with clear water was at the backyard, and everyday we also swam and dived there.

The kitchen was very well equipped and we didn´t miss a thing (this was also a professional opinion, one of us is a professional chef). We cooked our own meals in the kitchen and in the cozy grill room downstairs. It was also lovely to eat breakfast in the beautifully decorated living room with a breathtaking sea view!

This villa is well situated, grocery stores were near at the city of Lavrio. We also found supermarket Jumbo, which was a paradise especially for us girls, full of beautiful decorative items at a cheap price! We also made day trips to Athens, designer outlet stores, little villages at the shores of the peninsula. The temple of Poseidon at the cape was amazing!

The children (and the adults) were having a good time at the pool, which had an exceptional waterfall effect and beautiful sea view. During night time, pool was beautifully lighted and it was amazing to swim under the stars! Mr Nikos and his wife Dina made we feel like we were most welcome and were available to help in everything 24 hours a day. A perfect trip for us, amazingly beautiful villa with privacy! We are most definitely coming back one day! 10+++ ❤

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have recently returned from staying at Villa Scorpio and I miss it everyday. The view of the Aegean Sea is amazing and changes constantly. Sunrises are a must see. If you get tired of the view the infinity pool is wonderful. You can also swim in the sea. Dina and Nikos make you feel like family. The rooms are clean and spacious and the patio perfect for getting together. This is a perfect place for a family or friends reunion . Easy access to Athens. I would definitely recommend this paradise

A perfect vacation in a perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

The greatest home we could ask for our family vacation! Strtarted with Nikos and Dina's warm welcome, went on with day swimmings at the pool, and bathing on the rocky private small laguna. Kind Nikos and Dina were always available for any quesion or advise. The house is fully equiped and each section of the house has full privacy. Just 30 minutes from mthe airport, 10 minutes from the small town Lavrion and 40 minutes from Athens (by car) - You can Enjoy both the peace and quiet of this solitary vila and the nearby "civilization". Some evenings we coocked our meals together, some we drove to Lavrion; every morning we had our coffee in front of the sea, and just relaxed... the great memories we have from this villa worth these 5 stars!
