Greek Tourism Board License #: 0208K91000272401 Villa Nefeli is just an AMAZING place to stay… seriously, it’s positively, beautiful architecture and sea views are breathtaking…. But that’s not all!….. Completed in May 2013, Villa Nefeli was constructed under the strict guidelines of a young, visionary engineer who’s main goal was to create, not only a spectacular villa on the sea, but one which was environmentally friendly. It is one of the few homes in Greece boasting internal, green climatization which utilizes the local’s natal elements of wind and bright, natural sunlight. The result was the creation of Villa Nefeli, rich with detail ranging from inlaid, indigenous solid, marble stones, individually named living areas rich in character and charm to an outdoor conservatory of over 75 herb plants native to Greece. Taking pride in his creation, the ambitious engineer adorned the impressive villa with artworks of fellow Greeks as well marvelous outdoor furniture constructed from drift wood which had washed up upon the nearby sandy shores of picturesque, Schinias beach.

It’s not just the villa which is spectacular, but the area of Schinias as well. This Athenian seaside neighborhood was the choice housing area for the US Rowing Team during the 2004 Athens Olympics as the Rowing venue is located in the area as well. Therefore, by staying here, you can make the most of your Greek vacation itinerary by combining the unique opportunity of conveniently being able to relax in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea while still being close enough to Athens city to explore the Acropolis and all the historical center of Athens has to offer.

So, if you are searching for a beautiful and unique, "home away from home" in the Athens area with spectacular views of the sea, close to an immaculate beach, enticing sea coves with clear, turquoise sparkling waters, with a private pool and spacious balconies for which to enjoy the breathtaking nature views Greece offers her visitors... then Villa Nefeli is the home for you!

*Organizing a trip to Greece or anywhere for that matter can be a nerve racking experience. There is no need to take on the whole “itinerary” project yourself! I have years of experience of residing in Athens and know the area of Schinias very, very well.. therefore, I can help you with any question you may have so please…do not hesitate to ask!

"Gorgeous luxury villa!
We absolutely loved staying at Villa Nefeli! Iouli was an amazing and caring host who immediately and kindly dealt with any needs we had. The villa is so beautiful and comfortable and spacious - and we used every bit of it! The fantastic large pool, the gym, the well-stocked modern kitchen...I could go on and on! Highlights are obviously the stunning view and the rooftop hammocks where we would go every afternoon for a read and nap and iced coffee! Also the lift was an extra bonus that was great for my visiting elderly parents in-law. Iouli has thought of everything with this property and made us feel totally at home while enjoying the luxury of a beautiful Greek villa."

"Beautiful Spacous Villa
Villa large and airy for party of 9. Location not so good, although wonderful views of coast, islands etc. no access to beaches, shops or restaurants within easy reach. Car necessary"

"Fantastic Rental
My friends and I had a wonderful time at Villa Nefeli. The property is gorgeous, well appointed and and perfect for all of us. Nikos and Giulia were wonderful to work with. We would absolutely stay here again!"

"Great Villa
We spent two weeks here , the villa is massive and the views superb . Everyone was really friendly and it's a great location to explore the area including Athens , the beach is lovely. I was surprised how unspoilt the whole area was , no British fry ups to be seen , and a great pool. Make sure you use the services of Stavros , who is passionate about the area and is a great guide. Couldn't ask for more. "

"Fabulous spacious villa in beautiful part of Greece
We booked the villa for our extended family of 11 to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday. It was ideal for so many of us - spacious, clean, well equipped and with lots of different spaces for time alone. The location is wonderful for the views but we needed rental cars to get to local shops, beaches and tavernas. Unfortunately we received totally inaccurate information about the pool size prior to booking as literature we were sent informed us it was 420 sq. fact we discovered only two weeks before travelling that it is only 35 (8 meters by 4 with adjoining area with steps down)! Also information about one of the master bedrooms proved wrong, without the promised sea view, private balcony and steps down to the pool area. However the on site owner could not have been more apologetic or helpful. We visited Athens, the temple of Persidon at sunset (spectacular!) and enjoyed the watersports at the beautiful Schinias beach only 10 to 15 minutes drive away. The local rocky cove was also popular and we appreciated the convenience of the nearby ferry port for a trip to Evia. All ages among us, from 13 to 72, had a wonderful time together in what is a quite remarkable villa. We would highly recommend Villa Nefeli, based on accurate details being provided to guests ahead of booking."

"Villa Nefeli
We have enjoyed our 5-day-stay at Villa Nefeli enourmesly! A fantastic house with a spectecular view over the sea and a nice swimming pool. Beyond that the house was very comfortable and clean. The owners, Nikos and Giouli are very friendly and helpful hosts. At the day of our arrival the refrigrator was loaded with food and on top of that a delicious, complete 3-course meal for the whole group. Also their suggestions for our trip to Athens made this day a lot more relaxing. "

Landlord called us every day, that was kind, but a little bit annoying. Was not that clean that we hoped for that price."

"Wonderful place
Beautiful villa in a beautiful location. We were 10 people and had plenty of room. Well planned, great for families. Lots of space inside and out.
Plenty of restaurants and markets within 20 minutes drive.

"Thank you Villa Nefeli for a brilliant holiday
We have just spent the last 2 weeks at the beautiful Villa Nefeli. The villa is an amazing state of the art design and perfect for small or large parties. There were 14 in our family party a mix of 8 adults, 5 children and 1 teenager. There was plenty of space for us all to come together and spend time apart. The Villa was immaculate on arrival and we were met by Nikos and Giouli and their lovely daughter Nefeli. They explained the running of the house to us and we confirmed meals we had requested and a child’s party. You must try the meals they were all excellent. Nikos and Giouli were a great help and went out of their way to show us the best shopping areas, information on taxis, beach bars and beaches. There is information on sightseeing and trips in the Villa. We hired a 5 seater car ( word of warning make sure you request an automatic gear change if that’s what you are used to)! We used the car and taxis to get around when we wanted to go out. The Villa is situated overlooking the sea the views are amazing. There is a small general store nearby for essentials or travel to the village of Marathonas which has a great Patisserie, Bakery, general store, fresh fish shop and more. There are larger towns around 10 mikes away. There are 2 good restaurants nearby, the portions are enormous!!! They serve grilled meats and fish plus salads and Greek dishes. The pool in the Villa was a big hit with children and adults alike. The gym was well used by the fitter family members and the bar area well used by others. Everything was provided to enjoy a home from home experience. The washing machine and drying area was a real bonus. The pool was cleaned daily so was always sparkling clean and the gentleman cleaning the pool was very friendly. We booked taxis to visit the sights in Athens or for boat/ferry trips. We fully recommend this amazing home and will definitely be returning. Thank you so much Nikos Giouli and Nefeli for sharing you beautiful home with us."

"Villa Nefeli mJuly 2018
Aside from a little scare caused by the proximity of the fire, we had a wonderful time in Marathon. The villa had all the required accommodations and equipment, and was clean and in good working order. Niko and Giouli are delightful hosts and helped make our stay very pleasant; we can’t thank them enough. The Greek meal the first day was delicious and plentiful. "

"Fantastic Villa with all you need for holidays
We stayed here for about a week with 11 adults and two kids (4 and 7 years).
The villa has a lot of space to relax (around 6 terraces or silent corners), no matter if you want to be on your own or with all your friends together. From the "yoga deck" you have a perfect view above the bay.
Our most important point was to have breakfast and lunch together with 13 persons on one table. The huge table let's you easily sit together. The barbecue corner is perfect at the evening.
The pool area has perfect sun and shadow places.
We would (or let me say "will") come back for sure. "

"Amazing Villa outside of Athens! Felt like staying in luxury.
We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Nefeli! The home is absolutely gorgeous. Not one complaint about our stay there. We had a fabulous time. The house had everything we needed. I highly recommend having a car though if you are going to stay there. You will need one.
Each room is immaculate. It looks just like the pictures and is even better in person. Very clean. Very generous and kind owners. Check in was super easy as was checking out. This area is a nice sleepy town, we drove a few times to the beach nearby and ate in the local restaurants there. Such a wonderful and friendly community. I hope to return to the Villa again. "

"What could go wrong?
Well, I must say absolutely nothing what so ever.
We stayed here, got married here, had our honeymoon here, celebrated here, cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner here, relaxed here.
Nothing was missing, our most caring and helpful host Nikos made sure everything was perfect!
Always just a phone call away to give us any information needed on shopping, places to visit or tavernas to go for food.
The view is what everyone wishes for, waking up in the morning, overlooking a emerald sparkling bay. We will never forget our stay here and will definitively return to visit this amazing place! Thank you for everything!"

"A week end in paradise!
We had a wonderful time: we were received very kindly by Nikos, who waited for us in the middle of the night to give us the keys and show us the place. The villa is superb, spacious, so many rooms and little corners that even if you travel with a big group, you have total privacy and private space. The pool is divine. And we didn’t have time to use the outside oven!
We were 8 people staying for a family week end in Greece , and the remote location made our stay perfect: we just hanged out together, went to the beach and the pool... we didn’t get bored of the house for a minute !
In a word: a little piece of paradise.

Thanks again Nikos for the fabulous hosting!"
May 16, 2018 - Sarah A., Tel Aviv, N/A

Un excellent séjour dans une villa magnifique. Des hôtes charmants et aux petits soins, une villa stress bien équipée et suffisamment proche d'athenes pour pouvoir faire plein de visites. Et pour autant suffisamment excentrée pour pouvoir profiter de superbes ballades dans la nature grecque.
A recommander absolument"

"Easter in Greece
Villa Nefeli was the perfect setting for our family holiday. There was more than enough space for 6 adults and 4 children. Too cool to use the pool, but many places to enjoy the sun. The villa was equipped with literally everything!"

"Very nice villa and owner
We had a very nice vacation, the owner is a fantastic guy.
He helped us with everything we wanted. He and his wife even did a bbq for us, which was fantastic!! I recommend the villa an recommend the bbq by the owner. The villa is breathtaking! "

"Holiday Nightmare
Not what we were led to believe by the description on the website.

The view from the balcony was looking down onto another property being built by the owner. For the price that we paid for the villa, it was disgraceful. It was a holiday on a building site. The location was nice and the views from the villa of the sea was good, except for the building site in front and the concrete wall on the left side of the villa. We've stayed in many other villas but never encountered any problems before. This was THE ultimate holiday nightmare.

The property manager Nikos was very unhelpful.

The vacation rental was clean but the sofas and cushions stank of dampness. We stayed for fourteen days and the entire villa and bedding was changed once on a Sunday and that took Gouli nearly five hours!! Gouli and cleaner let themselves in with their own set of keys rather than to ring bell to be let in.

I was not satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Pools not cleaned because we dared to complain to Nikos about the constant noise from the builder's. Builder's walking in across the pool area unannounced invading our privacy

Overall, I do not recommend villa Nefeli "

"great place for vacation
Good access to the villa from the airport and the obliging manager of the house made the start of the trip very nice. Great pool and cool pool area made it a fantastic place to go"
Sep 10, 2017 - Jerzy R., Szczytno

"Perfect Getaway!
We stayed at the villa between July 16 July 28. There were 12 of us, and the villa accommodated us no problem. The location is about 45 mins from the airport but thanks to me entering coordinates wrong on my GPS and me not having Nikos' # it took us longer than that. When we finally arrived Nikos and his wife Giouli were just finishing cleaning from the last renters. They gave us a quick tour and explained a few things that we needed to know. They were extremely helpful during our stay.Nikos even drove us to the town of Marathon and showed us some good spots to buy groceries, sweets and fruits. He also gave us contact info for Stavros who was also very helpful in arranging day trips to Athens. The villa was awesome, had an elevator for my parents to go up and down as they have bad knees. The kids loved it too, I don't think they even used the stairs lol. The pool was great especially if you didn't want to go to the beach, it was a little cold at first, but once you got in it was fine! The rooms were very nice, and each one had it's own terrace. So the mornings you could walk out and enjoy the sunrise.
The beach was a little farther than expected but it was still nice, also there was a spot that you could walk too but you have to be careful as it is a little tricky getting there. You will definitely need a car to get around. The driveway was a little tricky to park at first, but once you get the hang of it, it was fine!
Overall the stay was fantastic, would not hesitate to go back and stay at the villa again.

Would definitely recommend Villa Nefali especially if you have a large family

"Nice house
- the house was big and clean, according to description
- there was room for 3 cars

- a little bit far from Schinias and the closest markets and restaurants, about 4-6 km and the road has a lot of speed bumps
- the owner visited us unannounced once and the Indians who cleaned the pool checked us each morning so we felt like intruders in some moments
- I asked help for renting bikes/scooters and the owner told us he couldn't find any, while we saw a company at about 10-12 km on the main road. (in the end, it was better with the cars because of the dogs that were on the road)

As a general opinion: if riding car each day isn't a problem for you, the house is more than ok."

"We had a great time in your house
Villa Nefeli is a beatifully furnished and decorated accomodation. There is a lot of space, a big swimming pool, a sheltered barbecue area and various terraces, even one on the roof, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the sea!
The herbs that grow on the main terrace can be used for cooking and the barbecue for the perfect mediterranean aroma. I very much liked the modern kitchen and that there are so many sitting areas - inside, on the terraces, at the pool and in the barbecue area.
Athens and the airport are quite close, a daytrip to the capital is no problem. For affordable groceries it is best to drive to Marathonas, around 14 kilometres away.

"A magnificent holiday in Villa Nefeli, Marathon, Greece
We -8 adults and 6 children - arrived at Villa Nefeli in April 2017 with great expectations and we were not disappointed. We had an exceptional stay: The hous is an architectual pearl as it is very prudently and convenient designed. It is situated in strikingly beautiful surroundings with exceptional views of the sea with its islands and treir landscapes. The living room, the bar and the grill area were perfect for spending time together, and the bedrooms with their separate bathrooms and balconies were ideal whenever privacy was required.
We celebrated our golden wedding with our children and grandchildren. Thanks to the landlords, Nikos and Giouli, it was an unforgettable evening. A Greek chef cooked the food, two Greek musicians played the guitar and the mandolin and Giouli taught us the basic steps in classical Greek dance. A fantastic evening. We highly recommend Villa Nefeli to all"

"Stunning villa in remote part of Attica
The villa was stunning, but weather too cold to swim in pool. No high speed internet as advertised. Nothing to do in the area so car a necessity as even shops and restaurants were not within walking distance. Owners were very friendly however suggest they have pool heated for this time of year and some leaflets and guides in the villa for visitors."

"The best of the best for a very good price...!!!
It's a stunning house with everything one could need including an elevator. Clean and complete, it's that simple. So much space, you can get lost in this house. Pool, lounge, roof terrace and BBQ area are what makes his house an absolute winner. Beautifull views at the sea and nice and quiet area. Niko and his wife are véry helpfull. It's just a complete picture and we will return. "

"Family vacation at Villa Nefeli
I was first greeted by the owners of the Villa Nefeli when I arrived. I should note that the hour was 01:00 in the morning as my flight into Athens had been delayed. The owners had purchased a grilled chicken dinner for me at a wonderful nearby restaurant and presented it to me in the kitchen of this villa, they then proceeded to take me on a brief tour of the Villa. Their accommodating spirit throughout my rental exceeded my expectations. The home is well appointed with wonderful décor and stunning views. It is quiet throughout the day and night and sits in a charming neighborhood perched near the summit of one of the regions many mountains. It is extremely clean, and has a multitude of sitting areas which seemed to fit every individual’s mood and optimized the location of the sun at any given time during the day. My stay was almost one week and it went much too fast. I highly recommend this villa and most certainly will visit it again myself. I have traveled to many parts of the world and I must admit that this was one of my most memorable rental experiences. "

"Not what we were le to believe by the pictures
I will be making a formal review with a side by side analysis of the pictures from the brochure and website with the reality.
If you are wanting wonderful views of a concrete wall from the main living parts of this villa it is a wonderful place to stay."

"A Slice of Heaven
The Villa Nefeli was fabulous. Just the right size for our family of 11. Enough space to have alone or together time. Clean, very well maintained & equipped. Great kitchen. Views spectacular. Location a little far from Athens but well located to explore other areas. Had we been there in season the pool & patio with grill would have been a huge hit. Loved the villa & would highly recommend it."

"Dissatisfied Customers
The view from the balcony was looking down onto another property being built by the owner,and the fact that a door on the property being built kept banging in the wind was annoying. The villa is now a semi detached property being attached to the new build. Not good! The door to the entrance of the villa was broken, Stavros who picked us up from Athens had to climb over the wall to open the door from the other side. When we went out we had to put a large stone against the door otherwise we would not have been able to open it from the outside. This happened on our last night at the villa, it was dark and very windy, the door had slammed shut in the wind. We had to climb over the wall, which was a sheer drop the other side, one could have fallen onto the hard ground or in the swimming pool. For the price that we paid for the villa, we all thought it was disgraceful. The villa also is not disabled friendly at all. The person who had booked the villa had said that he was disabled and in a wheelchair. Fortunately for our friend, he was unable to travel to Greece as he was ill and his doctor advised him not to travel. If our friend had come with us, he would have been totally unable to stay in the villa and would have had to stay in a hotel. To sum everything up, the location was nice and the views from the villa were good, except for the building site, and no way disabled friendly. We also thought it awful that we had to climb over a wall on our last night to get in. We were not given any keys for the big double gates that were next to the faulty door. On our last day the owner came and went through every room whilst we were there, which we thought was totally unprofessional. He could have waited until we had departed. Also there was inadequate seating for the maximum number of persons staying in the villa to be sitting comfortably. We always stay in five star accommodation and this property doesn't warrant that!!"

"Wonderful Villa in Marathon
We were a group of 6 who stayed at Villa Nefelli in August 2014. The villa is stunning with more than enough room for all of us. Very nice finishes throughout. We really enjoyed it. The views from the balconies are beautiful and there is usually a very nice breeze coming in. The pool is nice to cool off in or just to sit around and relax. We really enjoyed all of the little spaces the owners have created. Makes the villa more enjoyable because you can find your own space even with lots of people.

The kitchen was extremely well stocked and had everything we needed. The BBQ area is great although we never used it.

The fitness room was a very nice addition. We all used it and got in some great workouts. Nice bike and a few weights makes it easy to get a workout in.

Would very much recommend this villa for anyone wanting to stay in the area."

"Amazing place in all aspects
We were a group of 8 (there is room for many more) and found the place wonderful. Owner is very helpful.
Location is a bit off the beaten path so make sure you are setup for travel to and fro.
