Marathon Estate is located on the slope of Schinias bay, overlooking the crystalline blue sea of South Evoikos which embraces the peaceful gulf of Marathon, a breath away from the historical battlefield.
A distinctive aspect of Marathon Estate is its breathtaking views of the azure sea from each and every window. One can also enjoy the views while sitting under the pergola with the imposing marble table, which seats up to 12 people, enjoying "mezedakia" from the adjoining charcoal barbeque or while taking a dip in the 80 sq.m. private pool.
The sun beds and the comfortable lounge arrangements offer great moments for relaxation under the sunlight, while the villa’s plush colorful flora and the vibrant speeding kite surfers of the bay below transcend you.
The villa sits on a private land of 600 sq.m. and consists of two levels, with 4 bedrooms accommodating 8 people. The lower lever has a spacious living room with stunning Dionysian marble floors, reminiscent of old traditional Athenian homes. A black mini-grand piano and the paintings of Greek deities on the walls inspire guests to get in touch with their artistic inner selves. Along the same level, you meet a quaint, yet modern, fully equipped kitchen with a separate breakfast nook and a secluded garden. You also encounter the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and its own veranda with the magnificent views of the isles of Petalious and Evoia.
The upper level has 3 airy bedrooms, all of them with en-suite bathrooms and exclusive verandas with alternate views of the turquoise poolside, the bay’s cerulean waters and Nea Makri’s sparkling night lights; an exquisite site of the Athenian sea coast!
Location and attractions: The villa is situated 30km from Eleftherios Venizelos airport and 42km from the center of Athens, the exact distance of the classic Marathon run. One can visit nearby the Marathon Museum and the Tomb of Plataion, which was built in honor of the dead soldiers of the battle in Marathon (490bc), one of the most significant battles in Greek history. A few minutes’ drive you reach the archeological area of the Ramnounta, where you can catch the ferry boat to Nea Styra or South Evoia. 7 km away from the center of Marathon one can visit the unique marble dam with its artificial lake. Nature reserves cover all the landscapes around the lake, a host to thousands of migrating birds around the world. A great meeting point for the birdwatchers. Along the seacoast one can find many tavernas offering a variety of local specialities with emphasis on fresh seafood. Rafina port, the gate to the Cyclades islands, is 20 minutes by car.
