Photos and Description of this Marathonas holiday villa

3 BR + Loft, 2 BA, Sleeps 6


Quietly nestled above the rippling wavelets of the Aegean Sea, Aeolos Villa offers a unique retreat in one of the most splendid and environmentally protected locations of Attica, a breath away from the historic site of Marathon.

Indulge yourself in our picturesque home directly above the Aegean Sea. Enjoy the cool waters of our nearby sandy beach. Drink your chilled daiquiri and relax in our veranda with bird-eye, Santorini-like views.

Prices Including:

- Free WiFi (bring your laptop!), satellite TV (50 inches screen!) and video, free loan of mobile phone upon arrival.

- Maid services once a week,

-Free transportation from and to the airport,

- And a dozen, little surprises that will make you feel like royalty.


The house is located inside Schinias National Park, northeast of Athens, only a 3 minutes drive to a sandy beach with pine forest, 2 minutes to rocky beach, 3 minutes to taverns, 15 minutes from historic site of Marathon, 60 minutes from International Airport, 55 Kilometers from downtown Athens.


That is totally up to you. You could enjoy the sea and spend the day in oriental laziness, or you could try some of the various water activities (including water surfing and jet ski), offered in the crystal clear waters of Schinias Beach.

There is always the possibility of visiting nearby Marathon historic site, the archaeological site of Ramnous and the Marathon Museum, having Stavros as your personal guide.

You can spend the entire day in Athens, visiting Acropolis, the Archaeological Museum, picturesque Plaka with its numerous taverns, Lycabetus Hill for an overwhelming view of the city and so many more.

For short tours around Athens, there is the Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion, with its unique sunset, the Kutuki cave at mount Hymetus, the Temple of Artemis at Vravrona.


There are many fish and grilled meat taverns at 3 minutes drive from our house, where you can enjoy excellent food at the edge of the sea, feeling the soft sand under your bare feet. At Nea Makri you can dine in a vast variety of restaurants. You also have the possibility of ordering pizza delivered at home, or you can ask Rosa to cook for you her famous, irresistible moussaka!


Cinemas, beach bars and clubs at a 3-20 minute drive, or a quiet stroll along the little harbor of Nea Makri. That is, provided there is no full moon, because, in that case, you will most certainly prefer to enjoy your drink in our candle lit veranda.


Only your bathing suits, clothing, personal items, sunscreen lotion and your DSLR! We’ll provide linen and towels, road maps, isothermal bags to keep your fruit cold, snorkeling gear for your dives. If you are trekking oriented, please bring a pair of sturdy shoes and a lot of anticipation!

About Rosa

We are a young couple in our 40s and still blooming. Rosa works as a translator and is fluent both in English and Italian. Stavros, after a B.Sc, an M.B.A. and a M.Sc. In Marketing at the Universities of Lancaster and UMIST in England, and 15 years of very active service as an export sales manager for some of the biggest wine companies in Greece, now spends more time with his family, owning a taxi service and providing his services as a tour and a trekking guide. We have a young daughter, Danae, age 13, who enjoys swimming in the gently sloping, shallow beach of Schinias, from mid April, up to (occasionally) beginning of December!

Guestbook comments from the owner


Remember us? You're favorite taxi clients, I'm sure!

Well, you were definitely our favorite taxi driver,and we want to thank you for all your help. It was really fun getting to know you and our trip was much richer from the time we spent with you. We meant it when we said that you are welcome to visit us in Colorado! We have great skiing! Hope you and your family are doing well. Tell Danai (sp?) hi from Annabelle! Thanks again.

Going to Greece was the fulfillment of a long-held dream. I cannot think of a better introduction to the country, its people and its culture than that we experienced through Rosa’s and Stavros’ warm hospitality and friendly guidance. Our stay at Aeolos was very comfortable, the views from the terrace were incredible, and the breakfasts were memorable. We ventured on three tours and were rewarded with exhilarating adventure, visits to the glorious antiquities of ancient Greece, and many indulgences in traditional Greek food and custom.

Not only will I recommend all this to anyone planning a vacation in Greece, I sincerely hope that I will return one day to this wonderful villa overlooking the Aegean.

Greek hospitality at its best

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a very pleasurable week in June 2016 at Aeolos after having to cancel our trip the previous summer due to a medical issue. Rosa and Stavros were kind enough to apply our payment for the cancelled trip towards our stay this summer. They very thoughtfully presented us with a wonderful cake (and wine) upon our arrival at the house. It was terrific and a very thoughtful gesture on their part.

Please take advantage of some of the many tours that Stavros offers. It is absolutely the best way to travel and see what you otherwise might completely miss. Stavros' knowledge of history is fairly encyclopedic, ,so you are definitely in the hands of someone who is very capable of giving the backstory about almost any aspect of Greek history. His tours are thorough, and you will work up quite an appetite during the course of the day. Fortunately, Stavros knows where to stop for lunch, and his recommendations were all spot-on. We had some very enjoyable and relaxed lunches during our touring.

On days when we were not touring, we spent very enjoyable afternoons at the beach just a short distance from the house. We found very few tourists at the beach, which is frequented mostly by Greeks. Despite this, we found it very easy to communicate with most everyone at local restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Many Greeks speak English with fluency.

All in all, we had a tremendous trip that was made all the better by our superlative hosts, Rosa and Stavros.

A haven of peace and tranquilty close to Athens

  • 5 of 5

We spent our wedding anniversary week at Aeolos to relax after the bustle of an Athens weekend and I can only say it was the perfect place to do nothing.

Views from the terraces overlooking the Aegean were actually better than shown on the website. Breakfast in the morning sun, listening to Rosa and Stavros's music selection was special each day. Truly home from home.

Rosa greeted us with a celebration cake and bottle of wine along with all the basics you will need for a week. The location is around 10-15 minutes away from Marathon town and beaches with a lovely selection of restaurants and small shops overlooking the sea. Quiet when we were there but I understand lively with locals in the summer.

Rosa and Stavros are the perfect hosts, warm friendly and welcoming as the Greeks are. The Villa is spotlessly clean and very comfortable for 6 people. You will need a car, you also need to book the Athens tour with Stavros if you are going there, he a mind of information and the best host. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Stavros and Rosa were wonderful hosts and provided a great introduction to the Greek culture and area. Advice was spot on with regards to restaurants (especially Paradise and Greek eatery off of Monistiraki square) and advice about travel. We wish we would have had the means to take Stavros up on his touring offers, I am sure we would have thoroughly enjoyed our time wih them and profited greatly from their knowledge and hospitality. The home really has a wonderful view of the Aegean Sea and it felt like home (as they stated they wanted it to), very clean and well maintained, has a great amount of space, and provided what we needed to make meals on our own. They were always very quick to respond to any questions and were very accommodating. Recommend this rental.

Beautiful view of the Aegean Sea!

  • 5 of 5

My good friend, sister & I spent 8 nights recently at this very nice villa overlooking the Aegean Sea. The home was fully equipped and our hosts, Rosa & Stavros, were so kind and hospitable making sure we had everything we needed. We toured daily with Stavros Tours and were extremely happy and impressed with his knowledge of this beautiful country. We truly felt like were visiting family and certainly enjoyed our stay in Greece. Thanks to Rosa, Stavros & family.

Spectacular view, peaceful and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time!

Stavros met us at the airport and we followed him back in our rented car which they helped us to book. Rosa met us at the villa, made us very welcome and gave us all the information we needed and answered any of our questions. Their villa is modern, very clean, and has everything you need.

You definitely need to hire a car as obviously for a place to have such a spectacular view it can only mean "downwards" to the beach. but it takes less than 5 minutes to get to a lovely clean beach where you can park amongst the trees which border the sea.

We also did some excursions( Athens, Peloponnese & Evia) with Stavros which were great value for money. They were full days (12+ hours) and he took us to all the well known attractions and many less touristy ones which we would never have seen without his knowledge of the area.

We would definitely recommend this property( & the trips).

Thank you Stavros & Rosa for making our holiday so special.

How Do We Get There?

Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport is 45 Kilometers away. You could take a series of buses, but that would be a time-consuming and complicated procedure. You could take a taxi, but that would cost approximately 50 euros. In any case, you will not have to bother. We will be there to pick you up when you arrive, ensuring a fast and safe journey to our home.
