Please note that visitors must have a car The property is located south of Athens in the hills overlooking the seaside town of Anavyssos, popular for its windsurfing and fish restaurants. A pleasant drive from the property is the famous Cape Sounio (15 min away) where the ruins of the Temple of Poseidon (God of the seas) overlook the Aegean Sea.

Lavrion is well known for its eating houses (fish restaurants, traditional greek cusine) and cafe/bars. The entire coastline from Athens to Sounio has numerous sandy beaches suitable for swimmers of all ages. Athens International Airport is located a 25 minute drive from the property. The house is found on a 150 acre olive grove, and has a modern pop-art interior design. Living space is split over a high-ceiling ground floor and a first floor which overlooks the ground floor. The bottom floor includes an open-plan kitchen/lounge room, a double bedroom and bathroom with a shower. The first floor has a bed and a fold-away couch/double bed. Near by the secluded coves of Anavyssos, where the Aqua Divers Club. can help you to explore the wonderfully transparent sea. Nearby is one of Jacques Cousteau's old bases, the Calypso Hotel .This is wine country, too: call ahead to arrange a visit to Anavyssos's innovative Katogi-Strofilia estate, famous for its boutique whites After Anavyssos, civilisation becomes thin on the ground. Thimari, with its free beaches, is named after the wild thyme that fills the air. By now, the city feels hundreds of miles away. But at Attica's southeastern tip lies one last reminder of Athens at the peak of its glory: the ruined Temple of Poseidon, an echo of the Parthenon teetering on the 200ft cliffs of Cape Sounion. For ancient Athenians, this was the last glimpse of home before they sailed into the Aegean, and they gathered here for regattas to keep the sea god on their side. The temple's interior is roped off, but, with a zoom lens, you can see the names of former visitors, including Byron's, chiselled into the columns, For all that, the view over the Saronic Gulf steals the show: sunsets draw coachloads of admirers, who occasionally burst into spontaneous applause.

About the neighbourhood
At the far Eastern end of the beach in Anavissos, is an area where scuba divers like to enter the sea. There are many interesting rock formations and underwater fishing is good Because there is a large protected area where many small fishing boats are anchored, this is an excellent spot to take some great photos. If you are artistically inclined, you could also sit ant sketch or even do some water color painting. Late afternoon is a good time when the light is low Close by is the famous Aqua Divers Club Aqua Divers Club in Greece, a PADI 5* Instructor Development Dive Resort caters for both novice and certified scuba divers.
