“A solitary piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Unique relax and quiet, very close to the sea (approx.120 m.), very well kept property, a real 4+ stars comfort in the vilas - nothing missing even a dishwashing mashine in the kitchen, unique sea panorama from the 2nd floor big private terrace, a lot of green grass and olive trees and the most important - completely the opposite of Ouranoupolis with its plenty of tourists and all-inclusive hotels. If you want to have a relaxing vacation, Athos villas is your place!
One minus is that the nearest shop/cafe/restaurant is 5 km. away.
Another minus is that the sleeping rooms are really small - approx. 9-10 sq.m. - this is one thing that you can't see on the photos. Not a big problem, you sleep and spent the entire day on the beach (beautiful !!!) and on the terrace.
Third minus - the beach (beautiful !!!) is not cleaned from the seaweeds.
The last minus is that for next summer - 2013 - the prices are 60% higher than for 2012. Dear owners, this is a little bit exaggerated! We enjoyed very much our stay, but with this prices for summer 2013 we will find for sure something better as a ratio money/value.
A last word - very recommended for families with small children.

Room Tip: We were two friend families and rented one Deluxe vila, wich is expensive than the standart villa, b...

I discovered Athos Villas after 9 years of constantly visiting Ouranopolis and its surroundings like Nea Roda and so on. The only thing I'm mentioning this is to give you an idea about my experience about lodging in Ouranopolis so as to convince you that I found a place truly amazing despite of all my knowledges about this region of Halkidiki.
Probably if it weren't April to find our usual host hotel - Eagles Palace - closed, we wouldn't stayed at Athos Villas. 
The resort cannot be reached initially without any help from its personell but this is not a problem since you'll be welcomed very warm and with lots of hospitality.
Even if you are very familiar with the region, even if you know Ouranopolis, Nea Roda or Ierissos almost entirely you'll discover the resort of Athos Villas as a breathtaking part of a world you didn't know that exists. The resort is composed of couple of buildings each one being splitted in individual villas, ones at every ground floor and the other at upper floor with fully distinct entries. The road to the resort is leaving the main road which comes from Ierissos and goes to Ouranopolis even before departing Nea Roda and takes you out of town almost 3 km away on the hills to the shores of the sea. The villas resort is perfectly positioned just in front of the sea immediatelly behind the small road which passes in front of the beach. 
A villa is composed of one living with an open kitchen, two bedrooms (one with matrimonial beds and the other with separate beds) and a bathroom. The amenities are complete by finding all the kitchen suplies you need but also electronic devices as lcd's, dvd and satellite antena.
Each villas comes with an individual terrace where you can take breakfast or you can stay just to admire the sea, to listen to its waves and to abandon yourself to the wonders of Greek nature.
The hospitality is simply marvelous even by the fact that every day you'll receive warm bread for your first meal of the day. 
All the places in the resort starting with the villas itselves are extremely clean, perfectly arranged to the last detail and carefully maintained in best conditions.
The only things that somehow bothered me if I want to be very specific is the absence of wi fi and also the lack of mobile signal in the villa.
If you're counting the real things that this place is offering you the details mentioned above can be seen as the last important but for me it seemed worthy to present everything I faced with.
Even if you already went to Ouranopolis, mostly if you didn't have the chance to discover Agion Oros - the bastion of Orthodox faith  - try Athos Villas. You'll be rewarded by thousands times with neverending memories from Ouranopolis, its surroundings and why not maybe even from the Holy Mount of Athos if you follow the necessary rules and instructions to visit it!
I can only promise that you won't be dissapointed!
