It has air conditioning in addition to a ceiling fan.
Through the large four windows a breathtaking view is lying at your feet! Literally, from the top of the hill you can see the famous bay of Marathon with its unique blue waters, the trademark of the Aegean! On a clear day one can see as far as Andros, Kea, Evia and several uninhabited islands. The sunrise over the island of Evia is an unforgettable experience.

A well-equipped kitchen with a pass through marble bar to the dining room is perfect for entertaining and enjoying the same view as the living room. A ceramic cook top and convection over, coupled with a microwave oven and a gas powered BBQ (shared, summer only) will meet most if not all of the requirements for a chef if cooking at home is your choice. Dishwasher, top of the line refrigerator, washer and drier, add to your comfort away from home.The dining room is simply furnished with a 50s retro dining room table and chairs.

In the evening, thousands of small lights bordering the land in front of you complemented by the beautiful sky lit by thousands of stars will forever stay in your memory. The full moon nights are unforgettable. Just ask our other guests!

This special and beloved villa in Schinias is our retirement home. When we are not happily sipping our ouzos on its verandas, we spend most of our time playing with our two grandchildren in North Carolina. Feel free to give us a call or email us anytime should you have any questions!


No matter the language or how you spell it, Schinias is a beautiful area bordering both suburban Athens and the Marathon Plains; the site of the Battle of Marathon and the birthplace of the "Marathon Run". Ranked among the top ten tourist attractions by Yahoo Travel.
