Words cannot describe entirely the beauty and the "feel like home" sentiment this property offers. Starting with the generous villa, entirely at your disposal, elegantly decorated and including all the amenities you need for everyday living... ... with a gorgeous pool and the amazing pool house next to it,fully equipped to basically spend the entire day swimming, sunbathing and relaxing next to the pool..... refreshing yourself with cold drinks from the freezer.... Or having a snack outside in the shade..... .. And a beautiful garden surrounding and completing the entire location, all the above being serviced twice a week by a local gardener... ... everything exceptionally clean and working as expected... We consider ourselves very lucky to find it and book it for our summer holiday this year, it and we loved it first sight. Two families, 4 adults and 3 children aged 7, we spent twelve amazing days at this property and this will remain a landmark in our history of vacation rentals as the perfect Greece getaway so far. Everything was made possible by the owner, Nikos, that from the first contact before booking until the last day of our stay offered us exceptional support and communication for all the details we requested. Many thanks also to his parents for welcoming us in person at check in and also before our return home. We have received all the information necessary to get accustomed with the house, the surroundings..... We got local tips for the beaches and for tavernas and restaurants... That proved very useful during our stay. Outstanding hospitality overall! Our kids loved it from the first day and fully enjoyed it from morning till dawn, at the pool and at the local beaches, just a few minutes drive distance. We also found ourselves 1 h drive distance from Athens, and took advantage for a 1 day trip to this marvelous city. For sure we will return for our next vacations! It was a privilege to stay at this beautiful property and we highly recommend it!

The communication with Nikos was easy and fast and his parents gave us a great welcome when we checked in. The property is huge, with beautiful surrounding gardens and a massive pool, where we basically spent most of our time. The pool house alone has everything you need: fully functioning kitchen, two tables, a toilet and two outdoor showers. The villa is also a short walk to all the great nearby beaches which Nikos had recommended. The area also has many great tavernas (again, Nikos gave us a list with all his recommendations). It’s a shame our visit was short but hopefully we can come again in the future.

We enjoyed a relaxing week here with our family. The villa is lovely, spacious, exceptionally clean and the pool area amazing. It is unlike other holiday rentals as it feels like home and we were made to feel very welcome. Nikos was away when we stayed but he was in contact by text throughout our stay helping with any questions we had ( even how do we turn the lights on in the pool at night ). He was always quick to reply and really wanted us to enjoy his home as much as we could. The local beach is lovely ( a 5 min stroll away ) it is quiet and we chatted with local people bobbing in the sea each evening. If you have a car ( which we did ) you can visit many places easily. We had a lovely time here.

This was my second time staying here and WOW, WOW, WOW. The villa is absolutely amazing. The private pool is what you see in the pictures, only better. It's huge! And, I loved that there's a deep end with a diving board. The pool house and the main villa were very tastefully decorated and super comfortable. After the incredible pool, the best part was how close the villa is to some amazing beaches. The hardest part of the day was deciding where to swim. Three times a charm, and I can't wait to go back again!

We booked with Nikos, who’s speed of communication is exemplary, for a two week family holiday of 5. wWth children’s ages of 13, 15 & 17, we are classified as 4 adults and 1 child, the villa is described as sleeps 9, with 4 bathrooms. We were quite shocked that on arrival (slightly late due to SwissAir), and during the villa handover with Nikos parents (lovely couple), that the two girls were instructed they would have to share a bed, also that the adults and girls share a shower; our son took the top floor en-suite room, the third shower is outside and fourth is an optional extra. When I communicated this to Nikos, the reply was additional bedroom/bathroom is available at an extra €35 pp/night. This is not how the villa is advertised or the terms we booked. That said and to be fair and balanced I will review the villa as a beautiful house with exceptional poolside area, fully self contained. The beach and local shops are all very close by, villa is actually in Legrena not Sounio, car hire is not essential but recommend (Morphis Athens were great). The villa is a home from home, which is both a positive and negative, herbs available for cooking but medicines and cosmetics on display could be a problem for younger visitors. The house is large, very well presented and has everything you require for day to day needs. Space for unpacking is limited due the the owners possessions taking priority. The pool & pool-house do deserve additional mention, as they are the main attractions to the villa, cleanliness of the pool and water quality are 100%, the gardener does a wonderful job. In summary a very nice holiday rental villa, but advertised, costed as sleeping 9 is "economical with the actualité ".

Thank you for you review Stuart and I'm sorry you were dissatisfied with the room arrangement. As you were a family of 5 and did not explicitly specify that you required separate bedrooms and bathrooms for each guest we went by past experience with all our guests who find the 3 bedroom/3 bathroom arrangement enough for their needs and also more economical. The one extra bedroom and bathroom are indeed on a completely separate floor, fully equipped with a kitchen and living room and as such, we have to charge a small extra fee, which i hope you can understand and which I offered to give a 50% discount on as a gesture of goodwill. We were also happy to provide a foldable bed for the younger child at no extra cost but I understand that wasn't satisfactory. The extra floor is typically reserved for bigger groups (over 6 guests) or unless guests explicitly ask us for it. Having said all that, I understand your feedback and will take it on board for future guests.

Our two families were very privileged to enjoy two weeks here in August 2017. We have been lucky to enjoy several villa holidays across Europe, but all-round this is probably the best we have stayed in – it ticks all the boxes. Set up a little from sea-level, this spacious villa is cleverly-designed to make the most of stunning views across the shimmering Aegean, and enjoys much-appreciated sea breezes. With temperatures ranging between 32 to 37C we barely saw a single cloud during our stay, but we were never uncomfortable thanks to the constant breeze and many shady spots to sit outside, and AC throughout inside. Grapes vines, vegetables and lemons thrive in the gardens alongside rosemary, mint and basil, all looked after by Ajax the gardener who also cleans the pool twice a week. The pool house is a major plus-point. We chose to take lunch there in the shade on most days, the pool-side kitchen with fridge-freezer keeping our beers ice-cold, and a dish-washer to clear up afterwards. Clearly this is a home much enjoyed by its owners. Everything works just as you would want. Wi-fi is fast and reliable and will comfortably stream movies and videos for the kids. They were happy to sleep in the self-contained apartment downstairs, which also allowed the adults some peace & quiet in the evening. Legrena is a friendly place with two bakeries, a butcher, convenience stores and a cafe. There is a fruit & vegetable van which tours around. The bakery/shop next to the church sells inexpensive but highly drinkable white wine. There are also some really good local restaurants in the village which is easily walkable in the evening with flashlights (turn right out of the property then first left to get to the church). The fish restaurant Thodoros & Eleni is constantly busy with locals. Atrium a little further up was also excellent. Nearer the villa on the main road is Stamatis, again very good, and across the road is Neo Antigoni, run by big-hearted couple Ellie and Alex who will always rustle up something tasty and authentic. Not too far away is Lavrio, with the big MyMarket supermarket next door to Jumbo for pool toys and everything else. Lavrio has a very good fish market (which also supplies next door restaurants), an outdoor farmers market every Thursday, a butchers, grocers, a really good gift shop, ice cream parlours, wine shops, clothes shops, umpteen coffee bars and bakeries selling the famous Galaktoboureko custard pie. Attractive restaurants line the bustling harbour in the evening. From the Temple of Poseidon, it is equally breath-taking to take the coastal road West, overlooking crystal waters and sandy blue-green bays enjoyed in the evenings by the locals who bob around in the water just chatting and cooling off. The beach at Legrena is walkable and popular, but we preferred to drive a few minutes to one of the numerous organised beaches where you can use the loungers, sun umbrellas and loos, providing you are willing to buy an ice cream or a beer. Further along is Hotel Eden in Anavyssos and you can walk through a tunnel under the road to their well-organised beach with restaurant, bar and giant climbing inflatables in the sea at a reasonable day ticket. Athens is an easy day trip from the villa. We set out just after 7am and drove to Elliniko, parking on a street near the Metro station. Metro tickets were inexpensive, and by 9.30am we were at the Acropolis ahead of any queues. Nikos was able to give us some great tips. We were extremely impressed with Athens, for some reason expecting it to be packed, hot, chaotic and full of traffic fumes but we could not have been more wrong. After a full day, we were back to the pool by 6.30pm to cool off and refresh. It is definitely a city will be returning to in order to explore more properly. Immensely grateful to the owners for allowing us the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home, and for the great hospitality which was extended to us. Highly recommended.

We (4 adults and 4 kids) stayed in this villa for 11 days in July 2017. The villa has everything and more you need to enjoy your holiday. For example a big living room, kitchen and balcony. The balcony was great for having breakfast every morning. There´s a big table on it and chairs for 8 persons. There is also a pool house with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area with a table and chairs for 8 persons, toilet etc. The pool house was a pleasant surprise, as there were no pictures of it on airbnb in February 2017, when we booked the villa. I recommended Nikos to put pictures of the pool house in the profile and now there are pictures :-) We communicated during the visit with Nikos via whatsapp. He answered every time very fast and was very helpful. We had lunch or dinner in many restaurants. Good ones were e.g. Marida (close to the villa), Syrtaki (on the way to Lavrio), Pezodromos (in Lavrio) and To Limani (in Palaia Fokaia). Zorbas (near the villa) and the restaurant in the Acropolis Museum in Athens were both big disappointments for different reasons. In the villa Nikos had left beach recommendations. There´s a beach (maybe 3 minutes by car) he calls "excellent beach". You have to see that beach. It truly is incredible! Another we liked was Nossa beach in Palaia Fokaia. The villa is located in a quiet village with not many tourists. Please note that this is an area where you need a car. Bus connections are weak and we didn´t see any taxis near the villa during our 11 days. Bus to Athens costs only 6,30 €, but it takes 2 hours to get there by bus. We went to Athens by car and paid only 4,50 € for parking 9 hours in a multi-storey car park. Also note the closest supermarket, pharmacy, clothing store and other shops are located in Lavrio. Ca 13 km to go there.

We stayed at this Sounio beauty for a week in June. It coincided with a Greek heat-wave so the pool and the AC proved absolutly perfect. We didn’t meet Nikos, but we stayed in touch via Whatsapp and he couldn’t have been more helpful. Mum and Dad met us at the house and and gave us a great welcome. What a lovely family,we even met baby George! The house itself is on 3 levels but we only needed the top 2 for 5 people. It is a home, not a holiday letting, with all the home comforts and accessories you could need. The kitchen has everything you could need for self catering, which is a contrast to other holiday villas we have stayed at. The views are fanstastic and dinner on the deck at sunset was special. The garden is huge with its own fruit and olive trees. The jewel in the crown though is the pool area which comes complete with it’s own fully equiped kitchen, sitting room area and dining table. The pictures don’t show this area well enough so it was a very pleasant surprise when we got there. You can literally spend the whole day here drinking, eating , and bombing the pool when it gets too hot. We were looking for a relaxing gettaway with privacy, comfort, and a pool, and this house certainly ticked all the boxes. We would definitley recommend it

First of all, the host of the property is a great guy willing to do anything possible for his guests to enjoy their stay in the property and the location overall. More importantly, Nikos proved to be very flexible and assisted even in last minute changes related to our stay and that in a very fair way. I visited the property with extended family (meaning child plus grandparents). We spent most of the time in the pool house (fully equipped with kitchen, fridge, MP3 player, WiFi etc) and the pool, which actually is the most attractive corner of the villa. Moreover, dinner on the balcony with magnificent sea view, is also a must. The property is located in a small and quiet village, in the very southern part of Attika, but only aprox 45-60 minutes drive from the centre of Athens, in case you want to visit the Acropolis etc. Very close to the property (less than 10 minutes drive or 20 minutes bicycle ride), is the famous temple of Poseidon in Sounio, which is certainly a must to visit, in particular during sunset. The nearby beach (less than 5 minutes walk) is amazing, offering corners for snorkeling and has fine sand (ideal to keep your kids busy). At least 4 "taverna" close to the property, offfering excellent Greek cuisine, will serve you very good, will even have the food delivered to the property or let you pick it up, if you prefer to enjoy lunch/dinner on the property. All in all, a great and relaxing holiday, the pool house will be certainly remembered for long.

The position of this beautiful house gives one a fabulous view of the sea & the beach. There are so many areas of the house to enjoy. The large seating area on the balcony gives you the option of breakfast in the sunshine or enjoying the magnificent sunsets! We ate outside there often as a family. The owners hospitality is outstanding, attentive to our needs but not intrusive. Mary had a delicious Moussaka prepared for us, much appreciated after travelling. The house is very comfortable & well equipped having 3 kitchens in all including the pool house. The pool is the best we've had. Private, large with the convienience & amenities of the pool house, wonderful to relax there. Lovely bedrooms with comfortable beds & new air conditioning that works without noise! Can't end without mentioning the gardener. Kind respectful man who attends to the beautiful garden, keeps the pool spotless & attends to everything you may need. Nikos has provided all the information you require about the area. We can recommend the fish restaurants minutes away. The beach just before Palaia Phokia is great, good for snorkelling. All in all, a lovely house, in a lovely area, owned by lovely people.
