Country house overview - owner's description
Villa Fengaropetra in Anavyssos is the ideal place for rejuvenation, relaxation and fun. Ideal for musicians, writers, or generally for those who are seeking for a calm environment, where they will be able to study in peace, produce intellectual work, or simply relax, away from the noise of the cities. Also perfect for families with young children, since it offers innumerable possibilities for fun, within a safe environment.
Villa Fengaropetra is also ideal as a starting point to explore Athens and Attica, the heart of ancient and contemporary Greece. Apart from antiquities and the Museum,s the Greek Festival held during the summer months offers a wide choice of artistic events. The property is also very convenient if you want to visit Marathon,Delfi, Mycenae, Nafplion and other places of archaeological interest in the mainland. (See suggestions further down).
The estate expands at 15.000 square meters and it is situated on a hill. It overlooks the countryside and the sea, at a distance of 6km and offers complete silence and isolation. Around the picturesque cottage, long stretches of typical Mediterranean landscape unfold, with olive planted hills, vineyard fields, pine trees, and the blue horizon.
The ample swimming pool (6x12 meters) offers a unique combination of luxury and rural environment. The water comes from our own well, fact that reassures its purity and good quality. At the pool, one can enjoy complete privacy, swim or sunbathe, whilst admiring the impressive view. Taking an open air shower and relaxing under the shaded penthouse, completes the satisfaction of the bather. The pool is the spot usually most loved by children, who thrive in its turquoise waters, playing to their hearts delight.
The cottage measures 100 square meters and accommodates seven people. It offers the facilities of two double bedrooms, a spacious living room with a double sofa bed, audio equipment, wi-fi, TV and DVD player, a dining room with one extra single bed, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (coffee machine, microwave oven, dish-washer, clothes washing machine, toaster, kettle) and beautiful all round verandas. The house is fully air-conditioned and it has also a fireplace.
Furthermore, beautiful sandy or pebbly beaches are situated along the coastline, and one could alternatively go for swimming in the sea, which is a 10 min. drive away. The main beach of Anavyssos is a center for windsurfing and other sea activities, but if one wants a peaceful swim, going a little further down the coastline, would be advisable. Typical Greek fish-taverns, good quality restaurants and fashionable nightclubs, are within easy reach by car, along the coast. Daily excursions to the Argosaronikos islands (Aigina, Hydra, Poros) are also possible.
Anavyssos is situated, at 50 km from the center of Athens, 25 km fron the Eleftherios Venizelos airport, 50 km from the port of Piraeus and 20 km from cape Sounion. It offers the opportunity to visit Akropolis, the museums in the center of Athens, and return to relax away from the noise and heat of Athens. Cape Sounion and the temple of Poseidon only 20 minutes away on the coast line must be visited by sunset, a unique experience!!!
The village of Anavyssos, a 10 minutes drive from the estate, has a busy market place with supermarkets, grocery shops, pharmacists, doctors and anything you may need for an enjoyable and safe holiday.

This was a truly amazing place for a holiday. Perched on a hilltop with a long private drive with great views out to the sea and the beautiful valley, we enjoyed a very pleasant week here. We were welcomed by the lovely Effi with delicious Greek cakes! The pool is stunning. It’s huge! And the poolside cabana is very comfortable; great for lazy afternoons reading as the sun sets. The house is very well-appointed with air con in all main rooms. We were able to sleep 5 with no problems. The kitchen has everything you need and there’s good wifi. Every evening was spent watching first the sun and then the moon set behind Mt Olympus (no not that one.) We visited the Temple of Poseidon which was very interesting but a little windy – hang on to your hats. The nearby town Anavyssos had everything we needed (including a great bakery for more cakes!). We loved staying here and will return as soon as we can!
We had a wonderful welcome from Eugenia and her mother Yolanda who met us at Keretea and guided us the short distance to the villa via an introduction to the local shops. They showed us around the Villa and made sure we were happy. They were so lovely, we were sorry they left!
The Villa is set high up so you have a great view of the sea and the passing ships. The Villa gets plenty of sunshine all day but there are a number of cleverly located sets of tables and chairs and sitting areas to enjoy. The grounds are very extensive and there are lovely views whichever way you look.
The pool is large and we found it hard to tear ourselves away from it and the shaded seating area by the loungers. All the time you feel "lucky" to be there and that everything is a photo opportunity. The gardens are well attended with a wide variety of flowers and shrubs and the lawn sets the look off very well. I particularly enjoyed the patio seating which was perfect for an early morning cup of coffee and the opportunity to take in the scenery.
The house itself has 2 bedrooms; a double and a twin and we used the sofa bed in the main living area. It was never put away and was never in the way either which shows how roomy the layout is. There are several air conditioning units and the villa is never too hot.
There is a large dinning table inside that we didn't use but looked great for family meals. We tended to eat at the main table under the bougainvillea, which is the perfect spot for family meals.
The kitchen area is a little dark but is very well served with a large fridge, dishwasher and washing machine etc. We found some of the small appliances weren't working (microwave, kettle) but this was easily overcome and there was the bonus of a sandwich maker which was wonderful for our boys who found ham and cheese toasties essential! In general the feeling is that you are in a well loved home. There are all the small things you would have in your own home and the villa is "dressed" very nicely with little touches that set it off at its best.
There is wifi at the house which was appreciated and used a lot by our teenage sons in particular. The TV seemed to work for Greek channels only but we only wanted to check on the Olympics, otherwise you wouldn't have turned it on at all.
We would recommend this Villa to anyone. We had no problems at all and the owners always got back to us with any questions we had. On one occasion we asked for a pool attendant to come as the high winds we had, had blown a lot of leaf and bark into the pool. Effi came straight back to us and a guy appeared within the hour.
Overall, we absolutely loved our stay and would love to visit again one day. One final note, you do need a car. The local amenities are some distance away. Although we did enjoy walking on the local tracks and trails too!
A final recommendation might be to leave a visitor book for guests to write their experiences and recommendations in.
Thank you Fengaropetra, we had a wonderful holiday!
Effi and Stavros were amazing. Not only did they meet us at the airport where we waited ages to get the car hire sorted but showed us round the house and came back and sorted an issue with the water. Communication beforehand was great too.
The house and it's grounds were beautiful. The pool area was fantastic with very comfy sunbeds. Only wished the weather was better for us to go in the massive pool!
The house is definitely off the beaten track and car is essential. But it only took 10-15 mins to get to the beach and restaurants.
The trip to Acropolis was straight forward and you can't fault the subway system.
We had a lovely, relaxing time at this house and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you to Effi for allowing us to stay.
Wunderbarer Urlaub! Das Haus ist schon ein wenig älter, was man beispielsweise den beiden Bädern (mit Badewannen ohne Duschvorhang) ansieht. Das Haus ist aber sehr gepflegt und war wie alles tadellos sauber. Die beiden Schlafzimmer sind klein und das Doppelbett nur 1,50 m breit. Dafür ist alles andere umso größer: der Wohnbereich mit Küche und Essplatz, die drei verschieden möblierten Terrassen, die Blumenarrangements im und um das Haus, der herrlich duftende Kräutergarten, der an der Ost- und Nordseite des Hauses angelegt ist, und der Poolbereich. Haus und Küche waren sehr gut ausgestattet. Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine und Kühl-/Gefrierkombination funktionierten einwandfrei. Geschirr, Gläser und Küchengeräte gab es im Überfluss. Dank Lage und Bauweise des Hauses brauchten wir die Klimageräte nicht einzuschalten. Auch dem Poolbereich sah man seine Jahre an. Er war aber tadellos in Ordnung. Angenehm ist die dortige Toilette und die von uns fast ausschließlich benutzte Außendusche. Das weite Sonnendach, die bequemen Liegen, die Sitzgarnitur, der Essbereich und die Vorhänge lassen einen den Urlaub in dem Anwesen zu jeder Tageszeit genießen. Und natürlich der Pool, der nicht nur groß, sondern auch tief ist, und so richtiges Schwimmen ermöglicht. Wem der Pool nicht reicht, kommt mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten an den öffentlichen Sandstrand. Er fällt ganz langsam ab, so dass er auch für Kinder ideal ist. Er ist leider kaum gepflegt. Einen Parkplatz findet man außer am Wochenende problemlos. Die Lage des Anwesens ist phantastisch: Rundblick nach vier Seiten, bei dem nichts das Auge stört. Abgehen vom Gebell benachbarter Hunde absolute Ruhe: dass der Flughafen ganze 30 Autominuten entfernt ist, nimmt man nicht wahr. Zum Eingang der Akropolis braucht man 75 Minuten, indem man mit dem Wagen zur U-Bahn-Station Ellinika fährt. Kap Sounion erreicht man mit dem Pkw in 30 Minuten und den Parkplatz im Hafen von Piräus in weniger als einer Stunde. Effi, eine der Besitzerinnen, hat uns am Flughafen abgeholt und auch sonst gut umsorgt. Das schönste aber an der Villa Fengoperata ist der Friede, den sie ausstrahlt und der einen ergreift. Himmlisch!
My parents were staying at this lovely villa for two weeks, while j was managing their stay from another country. The level of communication between the owner and I was outstanding, and Effi handled everything (including airport pickup, helping them to rent a car, arranging baskets etc.) upon request. My parents absolutely loved everything about the villa: the view, the location, the utilities. No questions asked, next time, I'll go there myself ;)
