“Cannot say enough positives about this place”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Pristine grounds, gorgeous pool area, views that cannot be compared of the mediterranean. Extremely large condos with 4 to 5 comfortable bedrooms and multiple bathrooms. Full furnished kitchens, living room and bedrooms. Staff is as pleasant as you'll ever meet. Beautiful beaches nearby and plenty of restaurants, taverns and shopping.. Located in a cozy quite area with little or no traffic. Would go back next year if we have a chance. Definitely
a five star complex. Jerry W. Arizona

“Fantastic Experience - such a relaxing place”
Reviewed 1 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I loved staying at Amalia Residences for our Greek vacation. The accommodation was first class. The staff were friendly and we were able to get out to some great local restaurants, and we were a stone's throw from the historic Marathon route. For me, Lying next to the pool, looking out to the crystal clear sea had to be the highlight...we will definitely come back when we're in Greece next summer. Thank you for such a memorable vacation. We will definitely be recommending Amalia Residences to our friends and family when they are out in Greece!

“Beautiful, Quiet spot with great Beach and History”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

It is a wonderful location right on the shore of the Aegean sea, just over half an hour from the airport and Athens. It is very quiet and relaxing spot, however, if you are looking for the nightlife, beautiful Athens are a short drive away.
The house is modern, comfortable, and meticulously maintained. It has a great pool if you want to cool off in the afternoon or take a night swim. There is an AC, a kitchen, a laundry, several bathrooms-so we had everything that we needed.
There are numerous places to eat all around and the food is great and inexpensive.
The owner and the managers of the property are great people-warm, friendly and very helpful. They guided us through our stay, so we saw and tried a lot of things that I am certain we would never experience if we were on our own.
I am a big fan of history so living a mile away and walking every day on the actual site of Marathon battle was a big thrill. In general walking on the stones of Acropolis, Ancient Agora, Mycenae, Corinth feels surreal and awe inspiring.
If you like to swim, there is a rocky cove about 100 yards away which is great for snorkeling, or there is a great "wild" sandy beach about 2 miles away, or fully blown beach club with bars and umbrellas etc.
The food and wine are awesome-my wife and I are pretty picky, yet every single meal during our stay-we cleaned the plates-finger licking good.
I would recommend renting a car, parking is not an issue and with GPS on my iPhone we didn't have any trouble getting around. The cars with manual transmission are readily available, if you need an automatic-the property manager put us in touch with a company that provided a luxury sedan with all the bells and whistles, they greeted us at the airport during arrival and departure.
One recommendation that I would make is to bring cash with you-the gas stations do take credit cards, but a lot of other places prefer cash transactions.
In conclusion-it was a wonderful place to stay, I would highly recommend it and we are planning our next stay at the same spot already.

“A Beautiful Escape for Recharging and Creativity”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in November 2012

I enjoyed an amazing two weeks in Greece, staying at "Amelia." The property is a gorgeous complex of townhouse-style villas -- nine in all -- surrounding a beautiful pool. Our unit had thirty-foot ceilings in the living room, with a dramatic staircase rising above us to the three bedroom levels above. It had a full-equipped kitchen and a private patio. Bedrooms were quiet and comfortable and well-furnished. On those rare nights when the breeze did not blow, each room had a powerful air conditioner that kept us very comfortable. Bathrooms were big, with shower-tubs and plenty of hot water. Overall, our villa felt modern, clean and luxurious.

It was about a thirty-second walk down to a private swimming cove below the property, and we swam every morning in clear Aegean water. There were several Mediterranean-style beach resorts, all about a five minute drive away, where you could rent lounges and order drinks. One even had a great play area for our daughter. There are great bars and clubs in town of Skinias as well.

Athens is about thirty minutes away by car or train. The port of Rafina was about fifteen minutes away, and we spent several days touring the Greek Islands -- Amelia is very centrally located, and is a great "jumping off point" for short trips all over Greece and the Mediterranean.

But the best part about Amelia is that it's simply gorgeous. As a professional writer, I was there partly on a working sabbatical. I completed the screenplay for a Disney Channel movie from the balcony of our villa (life was tough!), and I found the location incredibly peaceful and inspiring.

There were several other people staying in some of the villas, and I really enjoyed the community. The design of the property is such that you have a great deal of privacy -- you never feel like you MUST socialize. But there are common areas where you can meet other guests (the pool, gardens, etc.), and we found Amelia attracts a certain type -- cosmopolitan, interesting, and respectful. We really got to know and like some of fellow travelers, and now feel we have friends from all over the world.

Overall, I highly recommend Amelia for people seeking an inspiring escape, slightly off the beaten path, to unwind and enjoy sea views, Aegean waters and Greek resorts. Or those looking for a central place from which to explore Greece in general. It's a truly unique place unlike anywhere else in the world.

“Spectacular Find”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Close to Athens but a million miles away in terms of beauty and serenity, we felt this small group of condo townhouses was a wonderful find. The unit we stayed in was lovely.... comfortable, casually elegant and a great place to entertain. The pool is big and the view to the sea, is magnificent. The rooms are commodious and airy, the beds are terrific and we had a large balcony looking out over the water.... quite romantic. It is a short walk to a wonderful private beach and there are good restaurants, beach bars with lots of local color and sightseeing right in Marathon, just minutes away. We also felt really safe and liked being in a nice community with lovely homes owned by local people. We have traveled all over the world and this is one of the nicest places we've stayed. We are really looking forward to going back and would recommend this place to anyone.
