Relaxed Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great if you want to chill out by the pool and cooking family meals. With great views out to sea and islands and down to marathon rowing lake and mountains.

Can't really walk to beachs but only 10 Minutes in the car.

Local tavernas 10 mins away in car but willing to drop back after meals . Make sure you have GPS to find it initially if not all coming together as the private roads are hard to identify although Nick will guide you in first off

AMAZING PLACE!!! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely perfect! Rooms are clean, bright and spacious. Villa is well kept and updated with all amenities. The pool and terrace are amazing. The views are breathtaking all around you. We spent 11 days in the villa with 11 people (family young and old). Everyone had a fabulous time. Our hosts Vicky and Nick were so gracious and kind. Met us with a welcome drink and platters of fruit, meat, cheese and veggies. Showed us where to find everything, places to shop, eat and lounge at the Schinias beach (amazing clean beach, lined with trees, very close to villa). Vicky even made arrangements for a private chef to come to the villa (special birthday celebration one night) to cook us up a traditional Greek meal. They even made us a birthday cake. The pictures are 100% accurate. It really is this beautiful. I cannot say enough great things about this place and Vicky /Nick. If you are looking for paradise in Greece? this is it!

We were a larger group vacation spent in beautiful Greece. Everything was great. We had a superb location, the scenery was great. You get the impression that you and the sea stay together. The villa is very well designed in terms of architecture. Congratulations Nikos. It also has everything it needs and personality. Congratulations Victoria. There are two wonderful people we got along well and who strive to ensure every comfort for a wonderful holiday. Thank you from the heart and will appreciate you. I recommend this beautiful villa to anyone. The beach can least dparte is great and beautiful scenery makes you forget that you have to go three minutes to the beach.

Einfach traumhaft

  • 5 of 5

Nicht nur sehr nette und herzliche Vermieter. Der Ausblick einfach unbeschreiblich, haben wir wunderbare 10 Tage mit zwei Familien dort verbracht. Sehr erholsam für die Erwachsenen, viel Pool Zeit für die Kinder von 6-16. Das Haus ist geschmackvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es fehlt nix In der Küche, auch W-Lan (wichtig für die Teenies) ist vorhanden. Felsenküste zum schnorcheln und Sandstrand mit Gastronomie sind mit dem Auto gut und schnell erreichbar. Zum wandern war es zu heiss, und wenn nur Berg ab..... Würden gerne wieder kommen, wenn es sich einrichten lässt.

Noch mal vielen Dank an Vicky!

Activity and Interests


Schinias is the best beach in Attica region and ranked among the top ten tourist attractions by Yahoo! It is a sandy beach with shallow, crystal clear waters, mostly calm, ideal for children, with a pine forest in the back reaching to the water's edge! Along the beach there are picturesque tavernas serving fresh fish and Greek snacks. All water sports are there! Windsurfing, water ski, wake board, beach volley etc. Schinias rocky coastline has many secluded spots perfect for sunbathing in privac


From Athens International airport It takes 45 minutes to an hour drive to reach the Marathon Star villa.Within a short driving distance you reach all major highways as well as three ports from where you can take trips to several islands. Rafina Port: to Andros, Tinos, Myconos and Paros, Agia Marina Port: To Evia, Piraeus Port: to all destinations. Within a 30 minute drive (or bus ride) you access the metro, in 1 ½ hours you can reach Corinth and Mycenae, Nafplion etc. Delphi is 2 ½ hours away.


Marathon town at 10 km you can find banks, grocery stores, pharmacies, hairdresser etc. You can catch the bus to Athens From Marathon to Athens by bus it takes 60 minutes depending on traffic. The town of Nea Makri is another 15 minutes away, with lots of restaurants, shopping. The Marathon museum, the archaeological place of Ramnus, Sounion, the Acropolis, are all within a 15 -60 minute drive.

Further Details:

All of the area of Schinias is a National Environmental Park characterized by European Union as Environmental Preserve. The Marathon Star Villa is located within the planned community THEMIS Residence on the top of the hill of Schinias by the sea. Most of the land within the community set aside as 'green' areas with only about 30% used for building lots. THEMIS Residence is gated with a guard and is very secure. The homes in Schinias range from small to large villas.

There is only one road with little traffic that enters the park and ends to our community. The luck of transit traffic makes everybody in the community to feel very private, very quiet, and very safe. Community roads are ideal for jogging and walking. Taking a path along the coastline just a few meters above the sea you will enjoy an unforgettable walk.
