Idyllic stone and wood villa with stunning, panoramic views of the Aegean Sea



Updated: 11-Oct-2016
Antique decorated 5 bedroom villa - Peaceful location, private swimming pool, rocky beach below property, 10 min to sandy beach

The gated villa commands stunning, panoramic views of the Aegean Sea. The majestic (100 sq metre) semicircle terrace in the front of the house is the ideal place to relax and its exposure to sunrise and sunset provides exceptional light and perspective. Seeing the full moon rising from the sea is a special treat on its own. A rocky beach is right below the property (2 minute walk, accessible by a staircase) as well as 2 sand & pebble beaches at about 10 minutes walk. The interior space (320 sq metre), consists of a three-story stone and wood villa decorated with original unique rustic antiques giving a special atmosphere. The villa has a 7 metre vaulted ceiling and seaside terrace for the four bedrooms. Lush gardens encompass the front and rear of the expansive 3.5 acre property where the kids can play, or grown-ups can find an extra quiet spot to relax. Private swimming pool, table tennis, kids swings and a basketball/tennis court are available. Authentic Greek tavernas are within walking distance. Seasonal garden herbs, vegetable garden and fruit trees are available. Home made products are on offer. GNTO permit: 0208K92000290501

About the Owner

We are a big international family distributed all over the world. We love travelling, however, what we enjoy most is when we can get all together at this house to enjoy family life: kids running around, a glass of ouzo and some homemade mezedes (with vegetables grown in our own garden) in hand, enjoying the view of the sea.

We like meeting new people and guests are always welcomed in our house. We love Greece and we will do all that we possibly can to ensure an enjoyable stay for you so that afterwards you can say the same.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We needed a spacious villa for our party of 8 adults and 5 children, and we got just what we wanted! It is even better than it looks online. Huge, well-equipped, clean, quiet and with a great view, it feels just right. Everything works. It has a well-stocked kitchen all imaginable machines and with tea, coffee, sugar etc, etc available in the cupboards, as well as a large selection of mama's homemade jam. Laertis, one of the sons, gave a guided tour and made us feel welcome. The pool area is great, we all loved it, and the children were in and out of the water all day. The grounds are enormous and very private. Although the sea is warm and with lovely, clear water, the nearby beaches are not great for children. However, there is one just a 10 minute walk away that is OK. The village consists almost exclusively of villas, with 3 tavernas and virtually no shopping, so you need a car for supplies. We only tried the nearest taverna, it was adequate. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

The most wonderful, interesting villa offering all you could possibly need for a relaxing, peaceful break. We were a family of 10 from 2-83 years and would say a car is essential for sightseeing. Daskaleio is the perfect place to get away from the daily pressures and just appreciate the stunning location, great company and freshest of local produce...the delicious homemade jams and over 100 different varieties of basil growing in the garden. The most helpful of hosts...huge thanks to Liza, Sokratis and Laertes. The happiest of memories which we will hopefully relive on a return visit. Thank you

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, Thank you for the very personal review. We are happy you had a pleasant stay at the house. October is a very nice month to travel to Greece as the weather is still nice (with the exception of the occasional rain of course) and the sea is still warm. As you mention a car is necessary for people that want to move around and go sightseeing although we have had guests that they have not moved from the house for a week (maybe to go shopping once or twice). It is true that our mum loves basil (the "king" of herbs literally) and we love the pesto she makes for all of us. I hope you enjoyed it too. Hope to see you again in the future. Warm regards, Villa Daskaleio

The Villa meet all the expectations we had and are even more beautiful in reality than on the pictures shown.

The house/interior is fantastic and very well planned. We were 13 persons and it never felt crowded.

The evenings we spent on the large terrace with wonderful view over the sea.

The pool area is absolutely fantastic and the garden around it as well. The kids just loved it.

The owners ,Sokratis and Laertis has been very helpful from the first request and served us with all information we asked for. Very smooth and trustful.

We also had a warm welcome from Laertis who guided us around the area/house and also served us with food,snacks and fantastic marmalade made from his mother.

We wish we could have stayed longer at Villa Daskaleio ....

We warmly recommend this wonderful place

Best wishes,

Eva with family

We cannot recommend this property highly enough - we just can't fault it in anyway! The kids thought it was like something out of a movie! It was absolutely stunning and the photos don't do it justice, you cannot show the size and beauty and atmosphere in a picture, you have to see for yourself! The property was decorated very tastefully with rustic charm and had every amenity to make you feel right at home. The view was simply breathtaking, and sitting out on the veranda first thing in the morning and last thing at night would never get old, it was magical! The gardens and the pool were immaculate and very picturesque, you can tell its a home that's been cared for and loved for years.

Everything was thought of from lots of beach towels, washing powder so we didn't have to buy any for our mountains of washing (there was 11 of us) a lovely welcome pack of food, homemade pesto and delicious jams that we're still eating at home…everything was thought of to make our stay as comfortable as possible and it went a long way to making it the best holiday in years.

The booking process was so easy right from the start and there was no hassle in whatever dates required or silly questions asked; Sokratis was so friendly and answered them quickly. when we arrived nothing was too much trouble for Laertes and it was much appreciated, he made the trip so much less stressful - thank you so much for everything you did and for making our holiday such a memorable one!

Perfect villa for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Well, we needed a relaxing location break for the family to recharge together and that is exactly what we got. With adult offspring flying in from different parts of Europe, it was so easy and convenient to be able to reach the beautiful location of Villa Daskaleio. and immediately feel at home, open a Mythos and drink in the view!

Laertes greeted us warmly on our arrival, gave us a conducted tour including the extensive collection of homemade preserves and even guided us to the supermarket in Keratea.

The villa, pool, sun terrace and gardens were excellent and perfect for our needs. The information booklet was most helpful, particularly in respect of the tavernas.

Thank you, we wish we were there now!

Owner's Response: Dear Paul, Thank for taking the time to write this nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of what the house has to offer: a large terrace, a spectacular view, the gardens and of course the pool and sea right below the house. Our guidebook summarises 40 years of experience living in the area (many taverna owners have changed over the years but we are still there!). Guests, though, often contribute to our guide something new and exciting they discovered in the area. Preserves are our mother's speciality and she makes them with lot's of love. A typical greek tradition is indeed to offer sweets to invited or unexpected guests. So we also like to offer a "sweet memory" of Daskaleio to our guests. Looking forward to receiving you again in the future. Villa Daskaleio

From the Owner

The stunning, stone and wood villa, nestled on the seaside slopes, was constructed in the early 70’s. One can immediately see the love and attention put in every detail by my parents and their architect friends.The house itself is decorated with authentic antiques that give it its special character. It is located in a small very picturesque bay that offers excellent views over the Aegean Sea. The property located at the end of the road, assures utmost discretion and tranquillity for any ideal vacation close to Athens.

From the Owner

The house with a 7 m vaulted ceiling benefits from a large interior communal areas connected to outside terraces is the ideal place to relax after a day at the seaside. The exposure to sunrise and sunset provides exceptional light and perspective. What makes this property actually unique is its front terrace. I love watching the moon rising directly from the sea in front of the house or being able to see the Greek islands in the horizon in the morning. I prefer the rocky quiet beach right below the property but if one wishes there are 2 sandy beaches, at about 10-15 minute walk. On the way one can enjoy fresh fish and other mezedes in one of the tavernas next to the sea. What more can one ask for so close to Athens?
