We were a group of up to ten adults. I was the organiser, so this is a pretty functional report. I hope others in my party will add more "holiday" gloss. The house, furnishings and equipment were first class, and the pool large and well maintained. The living areas were large enough for us to break into four groups at...

You couldn't have asked for more really. Victoria and Nick were there to greet us and had so much pride in their house, which is breath takingly beautiful - they gave us a tour and some handy hints about where to eat out etc and then left us to it. The house is just wonderful, beautiful and most importantly functional....

About the neighborhood
All of the area of Schinias is a National Environmental Park characterized by European Union as Environmental Preserve.'Marathon Star Villa' is located within the planned community THEMIS Residence on the top of the hill of Schinias by the sea. Most of the land within the community set aside as 'green' areas with only about 30% used for building lots. THEMIS Residence is gated with a guard and is very secure. The homes in Schinias range from small to large villas.

There is only one road with little traffic that enters the park and ends to our community. The luck of transit traffic makes everybody in the community to feel very private, very quite, and very safe. Community roads are ideal for jogging and walking. Taking a path along the coast line just a few meters above t...
