  Epidaurus. Such a historically, culturally, and aesthetically unique area, even for Greece's standards. Reputed to be the birthplace of Apollo's son Asclepius, the God of healing and medicine, Epidaurus was known for its sanctuary, and even more for its theater, which is still in use today; an architectural masterpiece marveled for its extraordinary acoustics, which hosts exquisite theatrical and musical performances on cool summer evenings. This, surrounded by a landscape which is a true example of what we Greeks call ''Blessed land''. Combining steep hills, lush vegetation, and of course wonderful beaches, it is simply a delight to behold.

Epidaurus is at the heart of Greece's most treasured historical sites. A short drive in almost any direction will lead you to Ancient Corinth, the ruins of Ancient Mycenae, the Castle-port of Nauplio, Ancient Tyrinth, and several more historical sites, all intertwined with a marvelous coastal countryside. Villa Thaleia itself is separated by a 5 minute walk from a long beach boasting crystal clear waters, and a less than 20 minute drive will get you to the ancient theater and its performances.

Villa Thaleia is surrounded by a large private garden -offering complete privacy to the estate-, filled with Mediterranean vegetation ranging from citrus trees, to herbs, spices, and home grown vegetables of all sorts just waiting to be savored. The front-facing large patio is designed for entertainment and dinning, with large tables and chairs enjoying the shade of palm trees; while the back-facing patio and veranda lead directly to the perfectly round swimming pool, ideal for cooling off, while perhaps enjoying a glass of the local wine...

The indoors of villa Thaleia are quite unique in style, and very spacious. The two story estate boasts 2 large living rooms, 2 kitchens, 6 bedrooms with double beds (3 on each floor), 3 bathrooms, and an extra large veranda. The view from the top floor veranda overlooks almost all the gardens and swimming pool, while raising your sight will reveal the twinkling Aegean and the uniquely shaped hills of Epidaurus. The two floors are interestingly quite different in style. Classic stone and marble dominate the main living areas on the top floor, whereas lighter colors and wood prevail in the ground floor. Both floors, are wonderfully styled and especially practical, so the choice of bedroom and floor depends on your personal taste.

Villa Thaleia and its surrounding area provide an all-encompassing experience, offering a large portion of Greece's culture, history, and natural beauty, while enjoying the comfort and luxury of a marvelous traditional Greek summer villa.
