Nea Makri, Marathon, East Attica Region, Attica
Explore classical Greece from a friendly seaside base! Apart from Athens itself which is easily accessible by bus and metro, many famous archaeological sites can be reached by car within a day, including Delphi, ancient Corinth, Mycenae, Epidavros, Elefsina (Eleusis), Sounio and Vravrona (Brauron). If you don't want to drive yourselves, we can drive you! Share our new and ecologically friendly villa and garden, very close to the beach in the green and pleasant town of Nea Makri. Silvia is originally from the Ukraine and Chris from England. We designed and built Villa Verde in 2008-09, with some help from local architects and builders. The house is built to very high environmental standards. Geothermal energy provides most of our heating and cooling needs. Very large solar panels provide hot water for personal use. Water from a well is... Read more

Myself and my wife stayed at the Villa Verde for a week in mid June. What a wonderful place it was. Chris and Silvia are great hosts, and the apartments are cleaned every day and kept spotlessly clean. The garden is beautiful and the house...More

Villa verde proved to be an excellent location from which to take day trips- Athens, Corinth, Mycenae etc. It was spotlessly clean and has such a beautiful garden. Our hosts were so helpful - they really went above and beyond in helping us out and...More

About the neighbourhood
Nea Makri is a green and pleasant seaside town around one hour by bus from Athens city centre and half an hour from Athens International Airport. We call it Athens with a breath of fresh air. It’s a great place for a short break or for a quiet and relaxing seaside holiday, situated on the eastern Attica coast between the port of Rafina and the small town of Marathon, famous for its ancient battle and the associated long distance road race.

The central harbour is around ten minutes walk from Villa Verde and the main town square in the busy commercial district is five minutes further. Many cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and banks are within easy walking distance. There are small beaches as little as 150 metres from our home and there are more extensive and sandier beaches in the area of...
