About the property

50m from the beach with sea view

The villa is located on a hill, 50m from the coast, on 4000sqm of land facing the Southwest Aegean sea and the temple of Poseidon in Cape Sounio.

It is a private residence of 250sq m, designed by Manetas a well known Greek architect, and decorated by Stelios Anastasiadis' painting on the main atrium. It combines the principles of modern architecture with the ones of Greek traditional Aegean architecture keeping its dimensions small and human, fitting nicely with the nature of the 4000sq m land surrounding it. In the interior of the house the simple built beds and sofas create a fully functional environment for relaxed living. The out of season months provide a real escape to peace, tranquillity and relaxation.

Around the house we have no car traffic. This makes our community very private, quite and safe.In 100 m distance from the house you can dive to the sea and snorkel in the crystal waters from a small remote sunny beach with a rock cave that provides shade.

The house:

A 250 sqm villa in ground and first floor constructed with respect for the nature surrounding it (as it fits perfectly at the slope of a hill by dividing into smaller fragments).The design of the lodging incorporates the very best in indoor and outdoor living whilst ensuring the maximum of privacy.

The ground floor comprises a fully equipped kitchen, the living room and our main bedroom with double bed (1,70X200), walking closet and its bathroom. Also three bedroom with the main bathroom:1 bedroom with 1 double (1,50X200) and 2 single beds, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds and 1 bedroom with 1 single bed.

The top floor consist of one big bedroom with a king size bed (200X200) ,a small auxiliary room with a single bed, a bathroom and a small kitchen leading to the upper terrace with breathtaking view to the Aegean sea and the Posseidon Temple.

The living room with two huge windows facing the atrium and the sea has a fire place corner and a separate dinning space. Around the fireplace there are two large sofas (one of them can convert in a comfortable single bed), TV and DVD player with Dolby surrounding system and Internet. The atrium has a dining table and a big portable BBQ and it is ideal for enjoying the sunset and the sea at night.

The big windows the ventilation system, the central heating and the fireplace give the most for an easy indoor and outdoor living throughout the year.

Around the villa has very little car traffic. This make our community very private quite and safe. The roads are ideal for walking, jogging and cycling. We have a walking path that parallels the cost line just a few meters above the sea that is great to walk in the cool afternoon and early evening.

You can explore the pine forest that covers the area from Passas port to the Posseidon Temple in Sounio, discovering small ancient sites were gold and silver were treated for the decoration of Parthenon and other temples in Athens.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and relatives stayed in the house for one week . The view was stunning, really beautiful. The house had an interesting architecture and was very clean. Everything you could ask for was in the house. The house had different stages witch was perfect if you wanted your own space for a while. The owners were very helpful and service minded! The sea was only a few steps away. A car is necessary to go for groceries or to visit restaurants in the area. Two restaurants and a mini market was in walking distance. I definitely recommend this house!

Our time at Hidesign Villa in Sounio was fantastic. We were a group of 3 couples and the house worked out perfectly. We met with Hara and Pagona at Lavrio town and they guided us to the villa, showed us around. The villa is amazing .

All the rooms have air-condition. The equipment of the kitchen and of the house is incredible. The location is quiet and peaceful . We also did star watching at night. Unforgettable!!!

An oasis of Calm

  • 5 of 5

For a quick city escape surrounded by beautiful swimming coves this is an ideal summer escape. This house has an incredible amount of space that is ideal for big families or large groups. Set up high on a hill overlooking the sea, it offers a quiet and peaceful environment to relax in. A fully functional kitchen with huge living areas. A short drive will get you in touch with traditional tavernas and major sites including the Temple of Poseidon. The management are extremely hospitable to ensure you have a pleasant stay.

Ein Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 10 Wunderbare Tage in dieser Traumvilla. 6 Erwachsene mit 4 Kindern. Traumhafte Lage mit grandiosem Ausblick.Genügend Platz für jeden. Vor dem Haus ein Sandstrand in 5 Minuten Gehweg und hinter dem Haus nach 8 Minuten Gehweg eine Traumhafte Kiessteinbucht die wir unter der Woche fast immer für uns alleine gehabt haben. Im Ort sind ein kleines Geschäft und ein Bäcker wo man die notwendigsten Dinge einkaufen kann. Mit dem Auto ca. 5 Minuten zu fahren. Im Haus hat es uns an nichts gefehlt. Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet und in den Schlafräumen ist überall eine Klimaanlage.Da es den ganzen Urlaub lang nie unter 30 Grad hatte war die Dusche im Garten Gold wert. Im Umkreis von 20 km sind einige gute Lokale wo man ausgezeichnet Griechisch essen gehen kann.Im nächsten größeren Ort Lavrio sind zwei Supermärkte für den Großeinkauf, Fischmärkte und etliche gute Lokale. Bei der Ankunft hat uns Kostis ( Hausherr) mit seinem Wagen vom Flughafen abgeholt.Danke nochmals.Transferzeit vom Flughafen waren ca. 40 Minuten. Alles in allem ein gelungener Urlaub den wir sofort wieder machen würden.
