Beautiful and spacious house with a nice bay view
We were a family of 12 people ages ranging from 7 month to 88 years old. We all have enjoyed our stay at the Ashley Villa. The house is very big and every one could have privacy. The shared area is spacious enough for a large group. The balconies are big and have a nice view on the sea and the moon rise are beautiful. It is a great place for vacation enjoying the near by beaches.
Excellent house and owner
Very good. Would definitely rent the house again.
Thank you Joe and Sophia for your hospitality👍
Super Urlaub mit wunderschönem Ausblick.
Der Hausbesitzer Joe ist ein unkomplizierter Gastgeber, der uns den Urlaub wirklich angenehm wie möglich gestalten geholfen hat. Er hatte für uns viele nützliche Tips.
Das Haus ist sehr Groß und schön. Der Pool ist 3 Meter tief - da unsere Gruppe keine kleine Kinder hatte, wir haben es sehr genossen.
Marathon is where the Athenians defeated the Persians during the Battle of Marathon in 490bc. It is also the birthplace of the modern Marathon Run that was part of the very first modern Olympic Games held in 1896 at Athens. This run follows, as best can be determined, the original route traveled by Pheidippides in 490 bc.
Marathon's beach area, Schinias Beach with its pine trees and sandy beach, is one of the most popular beaches in the Athens area. The beach with its gentle grade, no waves, or currents that made it perfect for the Persian fleet in 490bc also make it perfect today for small children and distance swimmers alike. A pine forest grows to the water's edge providing natural shade for those who seek shelter from the noon-day sun. Several beach clubs are available for people seeking more formal facilities or beach activities such as wind surfing, paddle boating, bar services, and the like. Plenty of parking is available.
Adjacent to Schinias Beach is the mountainous, rocky coastline of Dikastika also called Schinias by many locals. This area is filled with resort homes used mostly during the summer months. All the homes have what can easily be called “million dollar views” and some like AshleyVilla are located directly on the Aegean Sea only a very short walk down a rocky path into the Aegean’s clear, refreshing waters. The seashore is both mountainous and rocky providing many small nooks and coves perfect for private swimming and sunbathing. The crystal-clear, cool water rapidly reaches depth in many areas making diving off rocks a popular pastime. Snorkeling is always a popular sport.
Only a stone’s throw away some 12 km from Dikastika is the Ferry Boat landing at St. Marina. The ferry will take you on a short but pleasant voyage to the village of Nea Stira on Evia Island. One popular outing by many visitors to our area is to simply park their car at the ferry boat landing and walk aboard the ferry, spend a day at Nea Stira, then return that evening to the mainland.
Marathon has two museums. The Marathon Run Museum is located in the downtown area of the village of Marathon. It has the history of all the modern Marathon Runs held as part of the modern Olympics. The museum is of particular interest to many visitors take a trip on foot from Marathon to the ancient stadium in downtown Athens. This is especially true for participants in the Annual Classic Marathon Run that takes place early November.
If ancient history is of interest, the Marathon Museum of antiquity is located between the village of Marathon and the town of Nea Makri. This museum presents the sites of antiquity located in the Marathon area such as the Egyptian Baths and the ancient town of Ramnous. Near the Museum are ancient tombs dating back thousands of years bc. Also nearby are the Tombs of the 191 Athenians and 11 Plataeans who lost their lives during the Battle of Marathon as well as a Mycenaean tomb.
No trip to Greece is complete without visiting the Athens Acropolis and the Parathion. Driving into Athens is easily done. However, if one does not wish to drive a regional buss is available hourly from Marathon that ties into Athens’ world class subway system. While in downtown Athens, a visit to the National Museum, one of the world’s finest museum of antiquity, and the Acropolis Museum are definitely worth the effort. Finish the day shopping in the old town, the Plaka.
Not all that far from Marathon are the Oracles at Delphi. This is an easy daytrip. Leave between 8 and 9 am and travel inland high in the mountains. The drive is easy and you will pass through several quaint mountain villages.
