About this listing
A nice house 2 km away from the beach, 25 km from the center of ATHENS, close to important archaeol. sites. If you're looking for a comfortable, clean house with a big garden and a wonderful view to the sea, you have found it.
Happy to host you!
Greetings from Nea Makri, Attica, Greece!
The house is only 25 km from the center of ATHENS (30 to 45 minutes by bus – it depends on the day) and 20 km from the airport “Eleftherios Venizelos, but most of all, it is only 2 km away from the beach. If you're looking for a comfortable, clean house with garden and a wonderful view to South Euvoikos gulf, that's just minutes away from the beaches, the city center and important archeological sites (Marathon museum and tomb, Ramnous, Artemis Temple) you have found it.
The amazing beach of Schinias is only a few minutes away. Schinias is an area protected by Ramsar Convention and apart from the huge sandy beach, has a unique pine forest.
From the port of Rafina, which is 5 km away, you can have daily excursions to some islands of Cyclades (there is connection to several island as Andros, Tinos, Mykonos, Naxos, etc). There is also connection to Euvoia Island (the ports of Karystos or Marmari are not far away).
There are very nice beaches nearby, many “tavernas” with fresh fish and “ouzo”, and plenty of bars to spend your evenings.
The house is located in the quiet settlement of Agia Marina, Nea Makri (2 km from the beach of Zouberi), an area comprised mainly of country houses, fully equipped and with a wonderful view to the sea. Cozy house, nice garden, close to the sea, fresh air and sun.
Location is very good. All you need is nearby. Nice place to spend your holidays.
Renting a car is not highly recommended if you like walking around, but if not, then you can find through internet to rent one.

Interaction with Guests
I am available for any request or advice, I reside in the building on the apartment downstairs.
Other Things to Note
I should mention that my dog is very friendly and she really loves people!
If you feel like partying or laughing out loud, feel free to do so and have fun! That's what vacation is for.
It will be appreciated if you used my personal belongings wisely and keep it clean.
Do not smoke in the bedrooms.
Please close the windows and door when leaving the house, as well the garden door which I would like to be always closed! I wouldn't like my dog to go out!
DO NOT throw paper in the toilet! Use the bin instead. This is the standard for Greek sewer systems.
Please, leave the apartment in the same condition that you found it.
Before check-out make sure everything is clean, including kitchenware, no garbage, etc.
Take the garbage with you when leaving the apartment (there is garbage bin near the house).
Don't forget to give me the keys at your departure.
"Es ist ein wunderschönes Haus auf einer kleinen Anhöhe mit Blick aufs Meer. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen, sogar abgeholt, dass wir den Weg auch wirklich ganz sicher finden. Auch schon vor unserer Anreise ergab sich mit Maria ein sehr herzlicher Kontakt, sodass wir so zu sagen auch hier schon abgeholt wurden. Dann wurden wir mit einem auch schon für den ersten Tag gefüllten Kühlschrank und vielen hilfreichen Tips und Infos im Haus empfangen. Wie beschrieben ist tatsächlich ein Auto nicht zwingend erforderlich, macht aber alles einfacher und bequemer. Zum Zentrum von Nea Makri sind es so 3km, zum Strand 2,6km, aber viele weitere schöne Strände erreicht man besser mit dem Auto.
Für alle die abseits vom Tourismusrummel einfach nur in schöner Umgebung bei einer liebevollen, herzlichen, fürsorglichen Gastgeberin entspannen wollen, sehr zu empfehlen. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.
Vielen Dank Maria."
"It is a beautiful house on a small hill with sea view. We were greeted warmly, even picked up so we would find the way for sure. Even before our arrival it came to a very cordial contact with Maria, so one could say we were already picked up here. Then we were received in the house with an already filled fridge for the first day and lots of useful tips and information. As described a car is not absolutely necessary, but it makes things easier and more convenient. It is about 3 km to the center of Nea Makri , 2.6 km to the beach, but many other beautiful beaches can be reached by car better.
For all those who just want to relax in beautiful surroundings away from intense tourism and stay with a loving, warm, caring hostess, it is highly recommended. We had a very wonderful time.
Thank you Maria."

About the Host, Maria
Hi all! My name is Maria and I'd like to welcome you to my cozy apartment with sea view in Rafina or my house in Nea Makri, or even my beautiful private room, close to Athens!
I like walking by the beach with my dog and during the summer I go swimming almost every day!
I am a biologist and I work at a marine research center, at the fisheries department. I care about the environment and I have worked as a volunteer, occasionally. I like literature a lot as well as music!
...and I am an animal friend as I believe that we all share this planet and we have equal rights!
I love meeting new people and making connections that make the world a better place. I look for independent guests who can let themselves in and manage on their own (with simple to follow instructions that I leave for you!).
