In fact, the original village of Marathias was built on the top of a local lush hill surrounded by olive groves. In the Middle Ages the inhabitants started to move to the lower plains. Nowadays the ruins of some of the original houses, a cemetery and a small church are all that remain.
Today the new village is built at a distance of 1800 meters from the beach of Marathias while our Family Studios Apartments are at a distance of less than 120 meters from the beach.
