About Despina

Ok.. This photo is NOT taken in front of my home. However, I wanted to tell you I also love to travel and have done so all my life. Meeting people from all over the world is the highlight of my life, other than my 4 grand children!

I have found out that people who travel on their own, are adventurous, love change and challenge and want to learn about the Greek way of living, our culture and cuisine!

Despina purchased this villa in 2000

Why Despina chose Attica

This is a luxury villa for folks who love great views, their comfort and privacy. it took us several years to decide whether we preferred being closer to the water, however the view and serenity of the place are unique. We chose to built on the top of the hill, enjoying the great vistas and still being within 3 minutes from the water. The best of both worlds.

What makes this villa unique

We are strategically located with a day's trip to several great archaeological places and the ports of Athens that get you to many islands. The airport is 50 minutes away and the closest city within 20 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed staying in the beautiful home of toe of the mountain. The views were breathtaking! Our group of family that totaled 10 enjoyed al lthe space and decks. Our first trip to Greece and we loved ending our vacation in Marathon.

Incredible views and luxurious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The house lived up to its description. It is spacious and luxurious and the host and hostess made us feel welcome by stocking the refrigerator and cupboards with basic necessities such as coffee, tea, sugar, milk, water, and Greek delights such as yogurt, feta, and fresh fruits and vegetables.

There is no public transportation available so it is necessary to rent a car or hire a guide. We did both and couldn't have been happier.

Stavros Barbicas, who lives just down the road was the best guide one could have asked for. He is very knowledgeable not only about the sights to see, but about Greece's history, mythology, and also its current situation. Our days with him included not only trips but also enjoyable dinners at delightful tavernas - and usually lasted about 10 hours.

No other place like this one

  • 5 of 5

The view alone was worth 5 stars. It's on the top of the hill with a 360 degree view, and it is absolutely breathtaking. The home is beautiful, comfortable and has all of the amenities you would need. The beach down the road is perfect with gently lapping waves and shallow waters (especially great for little kids and senior citizens) and there is a lovely place to get a coffee, hot feta dip, and hand cut french fries right on the beach. And for the more adventurous, there is also a cove nearby where you can dive off of the rocks and go snorkeling. We left Stargazer Villa with great memories that our family will keep with us for a long time. Highly recommended.

A beautiful home and a wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

My week at Stargazer Villa and my time in Schinias Beach was thoroughly relaxing and wonderful. The house has everything you need including a well-equipped kitchen. The views are spectacular, and a trip down the hill to the beach for a daily swim is a must. You do need a car. There you can claim your spot at the local taverna and have a delicious meal of local fish, wine, salad, etc. It's easy to get into Athens for the day either by bus or car and tour the sites, getting back to Schinias by dinnertime. All-in-all, just what I needed to unwind. And Despina and Stavros are the best hosts!

Beautiful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wow. There were 10 women sharing this gorgeous space. It was such a beautiful villa with a lot of room without get in each others way. Despina ensured that all our needs were met and assisted us with supplies and referral to her amazing tour guides - Rosa and Stavros. It was difficult to leave as we had become accustomed to feeling very spoilt. The views were majestic and I highly recommend this accommodation to friend or families.

I stayed at this property with a group of 10 women for 4 nights. We had an amazing time there and the Villa exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The views were spectacular, and we enjoyed both sunrises and sunsets every day. The bedrooms were luxurious, and all beds were very comfortable. There were many balconies and outside areas, and we all had privacy and space both inside and out. The owner was extremely helpful, and helped us to arrange meals (bringing in a chef for our welcome dinner) and have fresh pastries delivered daily for breakfast. The couple who manage the property became friends in just that short time, and they organised transportation, and also took us for an amazing full day guided tour of Athens, including a show and dinner. I would recommend this property for anyone considering a retreat, but transport is essential, as it is not within walking distance of beaches or restaurants.

Utterly utterly spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our Stay. The villa was spotless and beautifully beautifully decorated. The views were incredible. The nearby restaurants and taxi services had very friendly staff that made us feel welcome. (Go to 'Plateia' for the chicken gyros!)

My favorite moment was jumping off the boulders at the cove down below- the water was deep blue and pristine. Stavros and Despina, the owners, are kind, considerate, and were extremely helpful to us as we planned our trip.

The entire experience was MAGICAL. The views! the views! the views! I cannot rate this villa highly enough,

The villa is strategically located 30 minutes of the metro of Athens, within 30 minutes from the National Highway and 10-25 minutes to two ports which take you to multiple islands. There are many day trips one can take, eg. Corinth, Delphi, trekking in Evia, Myconos, Andros, Kea and several other islands.

Theme parks, such as the water park, scuba diving, the zoo, wineries, rope tree climbing, museums, night clubs are all within a 1 hour or less reach.

Our community is serene, beautiful, and tourist traps free. It is best suited for lovers of eco friendly environments, beautiful sandy beaches, rocky coast line with deep blue water, little taverns with great healthy Greek food and astounding views, the best kept secret of Attica.
