Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, Sleeps 12+ Guests, Swimming Pool, Near Beach

Epidaurus. Such a historically, culturally, and aesthetically unique area, even for Greece's standards. Reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asclepius, the God of healing and medicine, Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary, and even more for its theatre, which is still in use today; an architectural masterpiece marvelled for its extraordinary acoustics, which hosts exquisite theatrical and musical performances on cool summer evenings. This, surrounded by a landscape which is a true example of what we Greeks call ''Blessed land''. Combining steep hills, lush vegetation, and of course wonderful beaches, it is simply a delight to behold.

Epidaurus is at the heart of Greece's most treasured historical sites. A short drive in almost any direction will lead you to Ancient Corinth, the ruins of Ancient Mycenae, the Castle-port of Nauplio, Ancient Tyrinth, and several more historical sites, all intertwined with a marvellous coastal countryside. Villa Thaleia itself is separated by a 5 minute walk from a long beach boasting crystal clear waters, and a less than 20 minute drive will get you to the ancient theatre and its performances.

Villa Thaleia is surrounded by a large private garden -offering complete privacy to the estate-, filled with Mediterranean vegetation ranging from citrus trees, to herbs, spices, and home grown vegetables of all sorts just waiting to be savoured. The front-facing large patio is designed for entertainment and dinning, with large tables and chairs enjoying the shade of palm trees; while the back-facing patio and veranda lead directly to the perfectly round swimming pool, ideal for cooling off, while perhaps enjoying a glass of the local wine.

The indoors of villa Thaleia are quite unique in style, and very spacious. The two story estate boasts 2 large living rooms, 2 kitchens, 6 bedrooms with double beds (3 on each floor), 3 bathrooms, and an extra large veranda. The view from the top floor veranda overlooks almost all the gardens and swimming pool, while raising your sight will reveal the twinkling Aegean and the uniquely shaped hills of Epidaurus. The two floors are interestingly quite different in style. Classic stone and marble dominate the main living areas on the top floor, whereas lighter colours and wood prevail in the ground floor. Both floors, are wonderfully styled and especially practical, so the choice of bedroom and floor depends on your personal taste.

Villa Thaleia and its surrounding area provide an all-encompassing experience, offering a large portion of Greece's culture, history, and natural beauty, while enjoying the comfort and luxury of a marvellous traditional Greek summer villa.

Nice house in a beautiful area

A very confortable stay in villa thaleia

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy to stay in villa Thaleia. The house is very nice as we expected from the website. The flush may nead some more pressure though. It is a good starting point to visit the Argolide region and the house is just a five minuts walk from the beach and restaurants. We met the owners on our arrival and asked them for some advice. They were always prompt to answer our demands.

Perfect Place For a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The villa provided a fantastic place to host our extended family reunion. The location of the property is well away from any noise and traffic. The beach is only a couple of hundred metres away. We found the design of the property (essentially two flats, one above the other) was perfect for us. We put all the teenagers downstairs and we had the upstairs with the views and the breeze. The villa easily soaks up 12 or 13 people in privacy and comfort. Everything you need is nearby; including lots of ancient history. The owners met us on arrival and gave us some good advice on which taverna was the best. The one on the beach adopted us and vice versa. They even organised a special meal for us which wasn't on the menu. The villa is well situated to visit many great sites like Epidaurus, Mycenae, Corinthos and several lovely less busy islands nearby. If you are there in the summer, don't miss the opportunity to see a play in the ancient amphitheater at Epidaurus. We saw a fantastic play written 2500 years ago which was just as relevant today as it was then. The English subtitles helped but the play was very funny anyway and the setting looking West into a Greek sunset was marvelous.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Greece. We decided to select Epidavros because of its strategic location and the infinitely number of things to do around. We chose villa Thaleia as the elegant place that could accommodate our big family. We are very happy for both of our choices. Spot on! The villa was much more than we expected. An aura of class and comfort. We enjoyed every moment. Thank you. Villa Thaleia is a lovely place to be. We strongly recommend it to all families and their friends.

A wonderful place for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very accurate information.

The villa was extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped.

The very welcoming and knowledgeable owners were there to greet us (despite our late arrival from the airport) and even gave one of us a brief tour of the local attractions and amenities. They were extremely helpful throughout (especially during the reasonably frequent power cuts...).

The highlight of the week for the 3 young children (4 and 2 years and a baby) as well as the rest of the family was the superb swimming pool - lots of fun and games.

The upstairs lounge and terrace were excellent, though the kitchen was a little small when all 13 of us ate upstairs.

The local beaches (approx 10 minutes walk) were mostly stony but the water was clear and warm and the cafes were good.

We would certainly recommend the villa to other visitors and would be very happy to return. All in all, a very memorable holiday.

Owner's Response: Hello Alan and first let me say how glad we are that you enjoyed your visit and stay at our villa. I was speaking with Mrs Elpida a few days ago, and she was telling me what wonderful guests you were and how much she enjoyed having you. Thank you for taking the time to write such a descriptive review, it will certainly be helpful to future guests, and we definitely hope to hear from you again soon! Kind regards, Alex PS. As for the sporadic power-cuts, as you know, last summer was a difficult period for Greece in general, and it affected many areas, however most everything is back on track now, and there is no need to worry about such problems in the foreseeable future!

Excellent séjour dans cette belle maison

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très bien située, conforme au descriptif, très spacieuse et bien aménagée dans un environnement verdoyant avec belle vue sur la mer.

Nos grands enfants ont pu profiter de la piscine et du jardin tandis que nous admirions la vue depuis la terrasse. Très bon accueil. Région vraiment belle et préservée. Nous conseillons cette location à tous.
