Close your eyes and imagine you, the valley and the sea. Set on a hillside in the town of Source, within a natural wetland recognized by the International Ramsar Treaty.Villa Polyxena will allow guests to enjoy the magic of nature during a secluded getaway in the heart of Greece. Surrounded by cones, willows and plane trees, the very private Villa Polyxena overlooks the Pagasetic Gulf and a lovely swimming pool.
The property, which consists of the main house and a guest cottage, is set in terraced grounds dropping down to the sea, where guests are offered two jetties; a wooden one for boats to dock at and a concrete one dressed with deckchairs and a lovely shaded area with cushioned seating.
Villa Polyxena provides guests with all possible comforts with a heavenly tiny sandy beach next to the jetty, perfect for the youngest guests. In contrast, other small, shingle beaches are accessed along a footpath.
Villa Polyxena features a pool surrounded by lawn, where guests will enjoy relaxing moments on the surrounding decking area for soaking up the sun's rays, with plenty of seating space for those evenings entertaining friends. Here, guests can admire the rare species of birds that migrate in the region every year, including swans and herons. Guests wishing for a generous dose of adventure and sport will enjoy the offsite tennis courts, windsurfing equipment, and speedboat available upon request.
Designed to follow the contour of the hill on which it is built, the air-conditioned Villa offers spacious rooms, terraces and balconies galore and, above all, lovely views of the water and beach 100 ft.(30m) below. With hand-made roof tiles, whitewashed walls, wooden balconies and ceilings, and stone floors, Villa Polyxena is the perfect example of a Pelion-style property in the region.

While the living room with fireplace boasts a traditional corner, an ideal space for relaxation, reading and entertaining, the dining area offers guests a journey to Italy with its original Tuscan furniture. Regarding rest, the five bedrooms of the main house and the three bedrooms of the cottage are perfectly appointed to offer the utmost privacy.

This spectacular Villa Polyxena is located in a truly excellent spot, which lets guests enjoy kayaking, windsurfing, waterskiing, scuba diving, and hiking the path of Vathyolakos from Soupri to the top of Ai-Lias. A 1 hour and 40-minute drive will lead guests to Mount Pelion, a unique place to visit known as the 'Home of Centaurs'. Up the mountain, guests will be enchanted by the picturesque village of Portaria and its traditional houses and mansions, which also offer panoramic views of Volos and the Pagasetic Gulf.

The Monasteries of Meteora are suspended in the air at the top, almost inaccessible sandstone peaks. They are recognised for their significant artistic achievement and featured in the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only.
Athens is a 3-hour drive from the Villa, where you can visit the Acropolis and other historic buildings of ancient Greece. On your way to Syntagma Square, renowned for the changing of the guards in from of the Hellenic Parliament, make a stop in front of the beautiful marble masterpiece - the Panathenaic Stadium, home of the first modern Olympics.
