Fabulous family stay
Our weeks stay has been fabulous! The property is spacious, clean, tidy and in the perfect spot overlooking the sea. It is great for families holidaying together as there is space to cook and eat together but also lots of terraces and rooms to get some quiet time - if needed! The area is quiet and it's not too far to visit places of interest and some breathtaking beaches. Local highlights were a trip to Athens, watching the sunset near Poseidon's Temple and lunch overlooking Marathon Reservoir. From our first communication with Michael he has been a great host, very welcoming and helping us to make the most of our stay - thank you!
A slice of Heaven on earth
We had four generations staying on a so called Familymoon after son’s wedding in the UK. The villa was everything in the pictures and more! It was spacious, clean and well equipped with all the necessities such as plenty of towels and both kitchens were well stocked to cope with large family meals. There were plenty of break out areas and balconies to enjoy quiet time to enjoy the breath taking views.
Michael, our host, was charming and full of information and suggestions for day trips. Although a car is necessary to get around, there are plenty of lovely walks around the villa. We had a wonderful time and will certainly recommend the Villa.
Incredible Experience From Beginning to End
My husband and I booked a week at Stone Castle Villa for our 25th wedding anniversary and invited 15 friends to join us. Michael, our host, was so accommodating. He recommended HP Tours to coordinate all of the airport arrival pick ups and for our tours. All of our guests were met individually inside the airport and brought to the villa via private Mercedes. The tours were top notch and included an English speaking tour guide who happened to be an archeologist!
The villa itself is breathtaking. It accommodated all 17 people without feeling crowded. The internet service was great. There were plenty of beach towels which we used around the pool and actually took with us one day when we went to the sandy beach close to the villa (about a 5 minute drive). There is a washing machine which came in very handy as some of us went on a cruise after our week at the villa. It was nice to bring clean clothes along.
Michael stayed in touch throughout the week, ensuring that we had everything we needed.
We had asked Michael to secure a couple of guitars for us and he ended up buying them. We used them every evening sitting around playing, singing and watching the sun set over the Aegean Sea. Both kitchens are well equipped. We cooked breakfast every morning and had a private chef (which Michael recommended) for a few of the nights. On the last night, we went to a local restaurant that we spoke with earlier that week. The name is Paradise and the wife speaks English. They cooked us a lamb on the grill. It was a wonderful experience and the owner actually drove a few of our guests home so that we didn’t need to make multiple trips with our one car.
Michael also recommended a company that came and did massages for our guests out on the many private balconies one day.
We have used Homeaway many times and I must say that this villa and our host, Michael are the best overall experience so far. I highly recommend Michael and Stone Castle Villa. We hope someday to visit and stay at the villa again!
An absolute dream of a vacation!
So much kindness and care and attention to detail in this beautiful villa! We had gathered for a long planned group vacation, and this is truly one of the loveliest places I have ever seen. Our host Michael was kind, helpful, and so incredibly generous. I cannot wait to come back!
Excellent accommodation, Owner efficient and friendly. Strongly recommended.
The listing description was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. The Owner efficient and friendly. We strongly recommend this property.
We were there a week. We ate out, hired a local cook and cooked ourselves - all satisfactory, the 2 kitchens were well stocked. We were a large family group of 3 generations and liked being able to all eat together at one table by the pool, a good pool well provided with sun loungers.
Some of us visited Athens, which was easily done. We swam off the local rocks and from the beach in walking distance as well as in the pool and the children were able to kick and bowl balls.
We all thought it had been an excellent holiday and have no criticisms.

With an inherent affection to Architecture, tradition and aesthetics, owners were set to make their dream vacation villa.
Michael purchased this Villa in 1996
Why Michael chose Marathonas
One of the joys of travelling abroad is to experience different places and feel the local culture. Architecture and tradition are important cultural parts of a country's culture, especially for travellers. So, having the opportunity to stay in a Villa which is a rare example of the vanishing local architectural forms, building materials, and inspired design, is an important advantage for many travellers. Universal and plain identity buidings, that you can be in any place in the world will add litlle to your Greek experience.
What makes this Villa unique
The Villa is located in a quite settlement, overlooking the sea and next to a 'top rated' sandy beach of 6km long with a rare cone forest in it's back reaching the water edge. You nave the option to enjoy the sea and nature as you wish as there are busy or isolated spots to choose from. Small villages or bigger cities and a lot of archaeological interest places are within easy reach for you to visit and spend your holidays interestingly. Besides, the city centre of Athens, is within an hours reach.
