Stunningly beautiful house
I can't think of a better location to base a holiday in Attica than at Eleni's house in Sounio. It was the perfect place for us to stay. The house had everything needed practically speaking, it was beautifully funished, decorated and adorned with artworks, had lots of space in which to lose yourself from the family, peacefully set among the olive groves. We couldn't have been more relaxed. And the view of the Temple of Poseidon from the veranda, both day and night, added it's own ancient magic. The beach, set in a small bay just a few minutes walk away, was lovely for relaxing, bathing, snorkeling, or taking snaps of the family playing in the sea with the Temple as a backdrop. And there were so many lovely quiet beaches and coves nearby along the coast to discover and explore. Thank you Eleni for making our holiday such a memorable experience.
I am very happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for being such lovely guests and treating our home as your own. I hope we meet again, you are welcome at any time.
It was a dream
This house was just amazing. So beautiful, so close to the beach, so lonely in the olive grove.
We really enjoyed our stay, it was the perfect place to come down. Especially due to the number of things u could do around the house: nothing, then relax. If you want to go shopping, you better go by car, or scooter or Cab to Lavrion. There you will find everything you need, including car and scooter rental (Aqua marine Olympic park), restaurants etc.
there are also to really nice fish taverna just 5 minutes walking from the house. The owner of the house are really, really nice. I hope u will enjoy you stay as much as we did.
One star is missing, because of the mattress in the master bedroom, it's way to soft.
Better Than the Description & the Pictures!
The listing compared to our actual experience - EXCEEDED our expectations! The home was the perfect size for our family of 8! The view of the Temple, cape & olive grove were incredible. The cool breeze from the opened windows was ideal in the summer heat. The many inviting sitting options throughout the home was fantastic. Sitting under the grapevine shaded side yard terrace or the front porch with the ceiling fan was SO relaxing. Walking distance to beaches & close to 2 small charming towns with delicious restaurants & grocery stores was SO convenient. The Manager was kind to provide all the necessary supplies to make our stay comfortable and plus leave a basket full of food & local fresh pastries on the table & beverages in the fridge for our 1st day. The property left a wonderful impression in our hearts to last a lifetime. We will definitely stay again. :-)
Thank you for being such lovely guests and taking care of our house, we will be very happy ta have you again!
Idéalement située en vue du temple de Poséidon au Cap Sounion, cette belle villa, entourée d'oliviers est très agréable. Une petite plage caillouteuse quasiment privée est à 5 minutes de marche. Une autre, de sable, est à 10 minutes de marche, et accessible en voiture automobile. Si on le souhaite, on peut louer matelas et parasols à l'hôtel Aegean, installé sur cette plage. Au même endroit se trouvent deux restaurants, tous deux de bonne qualité, avec vue sur le temple. La ville de Lavrio, à 10 km de là, offre multitude de restaurants, de commerces. Un marché riche en produits locaux se tient tous les jeudis.
Les propriétaires de la maison sont charmants et parlent notamment français et anglais. Cette confortable maison est vraiment agréable à vivre, conforme à la description et aux photographies. La proximité d'Athènes et de l'aéroport est pratique. Nous avons passé un bon moment en septembre, en saison creuse, avec un temps superbe.
A wonderful house in a wonderful place
The house is really beautiful: very spacious, perfectly equipped, fresh and tastefully furnished. It is surrounded by a beautiful garden and you can taste some figues, grapes or almonds directly from the tree. The view is really charming: you can see the sea and the fantastic temple of Poseidon and, of course, the magic starry sky of Greece. The location is perfect, so close to Athens, but very secluded at the same time. There are a lot of beaches nearby and the closest one is just 5 minutes walking and offers you the chance of swimming under the temple: so special! The village of Lavrio (15 min driving) offers you any kind of service. The owners are special people, always available. We strongly recommend a holiday in this house, that will be in our heart for long time.
On the rocky peninsula that projects into the sea at the south-east tip of Attica, the Athenians built sanctuaries to their two most important deities: Poseidon and Athena. A visit to the ruins of the temple of Poseidon is a must, especially during sunset when the heat of the day has subsided and the sun dives into the Aegean and the horizon is filled with spectacular colors.
The closest beach has sand and small round pebbles in parts is a 5 minute walk from the house. It is quiet and picturesque and well protected from northerly winds that prevail in the area during summertime. It has a wonderful view of the temple and the open Aegean sea.
Hotel Aegeon beach.
This is an organized sandy beach directly beneath the temple of Poseidon and benefits from the hotel’s facilities (beach bar, showers, restaurants). Access is free but there are charges for umbrellas and deck chairs. There are also a few tavernas nearby. This one is about 15 minutes walk away.
The village of Legrena is about 5 minutes drive away and has 4 truly wonderful successive wide sand beaches with no facilities and plenty of space and clear waters.
