This is a stunning villa in the countryside of Athens only 10 min away from the airport and very close to the beach! You can access Athens city centre in 20'-30' by car.

This Suite accommodates 4 guests.

The space

The villa has been split into two Suites; Suite 1 (this listing) and Suite 2. This listing has one double and two single beds. A private bathroom with a shower accommodates the needs of Suite 1 guests.

Both Suites SHARE the living room area where the fireplace is as well as the kitchen. The garden is very spacious and we have created several sitting areas where our guests can enjoy their breakfast / lunch.

Only 10-12 minutes from the beach and 20-25 minutes from the centre of Athens by car! And 5-8 minutes from the airport as well! Ideal for a quiet business stopover, a weekly family stay getting to know Athens and the surrounding beaches and countryside, or for a quick one or two night stopovers on your way to our beautiful islands. We can help you with special arrangements for pick up and drop off from the airport, breakfast needs, day trips to Athens or the beaches, etc. If you need it, we can even supply you a Greek mobile phone for you to feel at ease. All we want is you to feel at home while enjoying everything this region has to offer!

Our house is a beautiful, peaceful country home, situated in the middle of the vine country side in the Attiko Parko which is the only protected natural area in the suburbs of Athens. Surrounded by thousands of olive trees, pistachio trees and vineyards, it is 10 minutes away from the nicest beaches in Attiki by car, 5 minutes from the international airport and 20 minutes from the centre of Athens. The sanctuary of Artemis at Brauron is only minutes away, as well as an ancient watchtower which can be seen from the house!! Horse riding clubs, beautiful walks, bicycle riding just at your door step!! If you are a keen golfer, then the Glyfada Golf Course is 20 minutes away too :) By the way, we are great hosts! Our dedicated team will advise you on the best places to go ... those places which only the locals know about :)

Our stay at Claudine's was unforgettable! Her place is unbelievable, in fact it is way more impressive than the photos shown here, it is a hidden gem. Tasteful, clean, friendly and inviting, this short stay to this heavenly place made the experience amazing! We hosted a small party and all the guests were stunned with the house, the surroundings and the peaceful atmosphere. Claudine is a wonderful person, extremely helpful, always there to respond to my requests, fulfilling our needs to the best, a 5-star host! Strongly recommend her as a host and this amazing country house! 10 out of 10! :-) Hope we can come back!

Our host was very easy to communicate with. We did not meet her and instead was shown around by our driver. The place is beautiful and we loved it. It was very calming and great to relax in. It had everything we needed and we would definitely stay again. However you need to be mindful that it is a far walk to any shops. Our driver was kind enough to stop past a grocer on our way to the place.

My stay at Varaba country house was excellent! It was beautiful, quiet, clean, and close to the airport. The driver Alexis picked me up from the airport, showed me around the house, and drove me back to the airport the next morning all for a very reasonable fee. His wife Georgia made me delicious dinner and breakfast both also for a reasonable fee. I was in the house with another guest (but he stayed in the opposite wing of the house) and we never even encountered each other because the house is so large and neither of us were there longer than 12 hours. The view is gorgeous as are the patios and outdoor seating areas. I had a beautiful private bathroom which was nice but isn't probably always the case when more people are staying at the house. They also left a phone for emergencies with contact numbers which was great. The house looks just like the pictures also!

Claudine is a great host. I have no words to describe her home as this feel is something hard to attain in a city where I live. We stayed there for 5 days, with her great facilities including her comfortable living room, kitchen, big patio where we had awesome dinners. The house looks exactly what you see in the images posted with a different concept and is very well maintained. We were taken around by Alexi for a good rate, who was very kind and helpful. We were also given a phone so that we can contact them in case a need arrives.There is also a small church outside her home for a little prayer and her house is very safe. I will definitely return back to Claudine's apartment and will visit her beautiful shop next time round.

Claudine's home in Markopoulo is beautiful to behold....elegant, roomy, private, surrounded by the scents of flowers, olive and pistachio groves, grapes and the warmth of a Greek sun baking every inch of you as you sit on the glorious central patio or one of the many wicker chairs throughout the grounds. Both indoors and out there are many places to worship some sun, curl up with a good book or enjoy a good meal (there is an outdoor bbq!). Claudine is a charming, intelligent hostess who freely gives you access to her home and will answer all your questions on anything you are looking to find, visit, purchase or tour in Athens and the surrounding villages. We rented the entire home and experienced an unforgettable time together. The house is spacious, modern, functional and Claudine's artistic influence is felt in every choice she made building this exquisite country home. Markopoulo is a close drive, Eleftherios Venizelos airport is 10 minutes away - the supermarket, tabernas, shopping and petrol stations are nearby - as is the Koropi metro station that takes you into Athens for a mere 1.40 euros each way. The home is gated ensuring privacy and safety. The port of Lavrio is a lovely 20 minute drive, Sounion (the home of Poseidon's Temple) is a short drive further down the road from Lavrio. Porto Rafti is a lovely seaside village near Markopoulo as well. This listing is perfect for short or long stays. Basics (toiletries, food staples) are provided by Claudine. You will definitely feel at home in Greece here.

I am very busy with my company, creating jewelry and different home products. It is my passion to develop new products, with new materials, ranging from silver plated charms for the home, candles to beautiful jewelry!!! I also have two wonderful sons who are studying, and they keep me on my toes when they come back to Athens to visit their friends and me (I think... ;)) I love the house I will be renting out, I have built it from scratch, decorated it and have spent a lot of time on detail ... I would love to hear your feedback once you have stayed there!!!
