This is a house that provides the invaluable feeling of home. It is a 2-floor maisonette surrounded by a beautiful green garden in the historical town of Marathon. It is conveniently located close to the port that takes you to many Aegean islands, historic sites and 1 hour away from Athens. The combination of this with the proximity of the crystal-clear waters of the shallow cove make it an ideal vacation home. My place is good for couples, business travelers, families, big groups, and pets.
The house is a two floor maisonette surrounded by a beautiful lush, green garden with tall everglades and mouth-watering cherry, apricot, pear, lemon, orange, plum and peach trees all of which are available for our guests’ enjoyment. There are also seasonal, brightly colored flowers, which create a beautiful contrast against the soft, earth-toned colors of the exterior walls.
The location itself is nestled in gently sloped hills, ideal for beginner or expert climbers. The area consists of single or two-family houses, spaced far enough from each other to have privacy but close enough to feel part of a community. There is visibility to Marathon Avenue upon which the world-known races are held several times a year. Within a walking distance from the house there are stores, a supermarket, bakery, gas station, which make this house ideal for those who like to enjoy the quiet home life. The combination of this with the proximity of the crystal-clear waters of the shallow cove make it an ideal vacation home for spending hours at the beach.
This is a villa well-worth its money for the invaluable feeling of home which is priceless. It is impossible to fully convey the extent of amenities and atmosphere which it provides and can only be fully appreciated once one becomes a part of it.
