“Beautiful, Relaxing Retreat”
Reviewed 29 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The best thing about this place were the hosts, Chris and Silvia! They were so accommodating and gracious! The rooms were spacious and very clean. They had everything needed for a stay, including kitchen implements.

My husband and I enjoyed the beautiful garden every morning, with visits from Sammy, one of the several cats that live on the property. We spent our afternoons at the beach, just minutes from the house. There are many local tavernas at which we are, often enjoying the fresh local seafood.

For a small fee, Chris will pick you up and return you to the airport. He has a binder in the room that is filled with information about the area. He will also give you a tour of the local sites if you are interested.

We are considering sending our girls back for a stay because we so thoroughly enjoyed our time at Villa Verde!

Thanks Liza. It was great meeting you and Mike. It was also good getting to know you better when you joined our English language social meetings. If your girls do decide to visit us, you know that we will make them very welcome and that we will fully support them in any way they might need whilst they're with us.

Myself and my wife stayed at the Villa Verde for a week in mid June. What a wonderful place it was. Chris and Silvia are great hosts, and the apartments are cleaned every day and kept spotlessly clean. The garden is beautiful and the house is minutes from the beach. For a small fee Chris took us on a 6 hour tour of all the interesting areas near by. There was cooking facilities in the room which made it convenient to cook the occasional meal and then eat outside on the patio. I highly recommend Villa Verde and the town of Nea Makri. Thanks again Silvia and Chris.

Thank you Ed and Jacinta for taking the time to post your review. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. I still can't believe that you chose to wheel your cases down to our place from the bus stop when I was ready to meet you from the bus. Some guests just insist on making it easy for the host! Thanks again from Silvia and me, Chris

“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Villa verde proved to be an excellent location from which to take day trips- Athens, Corinth, Mycenae etc. It was spotlessly clean and has such a beautiful garden. Our hosts were so helpful - they really went above and beyond in helping us out and were the reason we had such a good time- Chris knows all the local secrets and has great advice. We are travelling with our young kids and they lent us beach toys and games etc. Lovely people! We will be back!

Thank you Sarah for taking time during your stay on the lovely Paros island to write such very kind words. We very much enjoyed meeting you and your family. Your two lovely daughters are a credit to you and Steve, free-speaking yet unusually polite and well-behaved. We look forward to seeing you again on your way back home!

“Great hosts, great place to stay”

We spent 3 wonderful weeks in April at Villa Verde, as guests of Chris and Sylvia who made our stay comfortable, trouble-free and very relaxing. They were always ready to help and went far out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. It began with Chris picking us up at the airport and ended with him driving us back there. In between he took us to the supermarket and cash machine, the fantastic nearby pastry shop, printed ongoing airline tickets and he and Sylvia invited us to the special Easter dinner at their local restaurant. After I'd twice found the Marathon museum closed I thought I'd missed out. But on our last morning he took the time to drive me there and waited for more than an hour for me to explore it. Meanwhile Sylvia was always there to make sure the apartment was spotless and well equipped. The studio itself wasn't large but comfortable and it was a pleasure to sit in the sunshine on the patio beside Sylvia's beautiful garden. It made us feel we were staying with friends rather than in a guest house.
I must add that Chris has an amazing knowledge of Greece that makes planning trips around the ancient sites and places of interest totally hassle-free. The bikes provided at the villa also allowed us to explore the town, seafront and places like the Marathon tumulus. It's an easy bus ride into Athens (on the way back we found it better to catch it at the central bus terminus rather than further on at a Metro stop, because it tended to be crowded by that stage). So it was a pleasure to come back to Villa Verde after the crowds of Athens. Thanks, Chris and Sylvia, for all the time and effort you took to make our Greek trip so worthwhile.

As far as we know, John was the first professional archaeologist to stay with us. It was gratifying to help him and Melanie find and explore a couple of very impressive sites that were new to him. Of course, his historical knowledge of many sites far surpassed our own. Thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed review! We look forward to seeing you again when you're ready to catch up with the famous places that you missed this time round.

“Great place, great host”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed a week - the apartment was clean, had a simple kitchen and herbs growing in the garden. Chris was helpful. We'd stay there again if returning to Athens area.

We had a car - the seaside village and surrounding areas are best seen w/ a car.

The apt. is in easy walking distance to several restaurants, bakery and the like - once a week there's a large local market, we bought local produce.

Thanks Richard for posting your positive comments. You're right that a car is needed to see the surrounding areas and places like Delphi. You''re also right that our town centre is nearby so a car isn't necessary for someone who would just like to relax around our town and beaches, and maybe take public transport into Athens centre.
