“Terrific accommodation, pleasant rural location and outstanding hosts”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My Wife, Daughter and I have just had a relaxing 12 night stay at Villa Verde. The owner Chris Feather and his wife Silvia were fist class hosts and very attentive throughout our stay, offering laundry service, transfers to/from airport and even cooking of local bought fish (to avoid the lingering smells in our studio). We were welcomed into the very clean accommodation with complimentary water and wine along with sufficient cooking oil, coffee, sugar etc. The studios (4 available), were very spacious with modern climate control with both heating and air conditioning. The bathroom comprised a walk-in shower and hand basin with never ending hot water and very important to me when abroad, a toilet in which you can flush toilet tissue. The gardens of the Villa are exceptional and full of a variety of colourful plants, flowers, shrubs, bushes and small trees with plenty of space to sunbathe or sit at the patio tables provided with shades - all well kept and nurtured, predominantly by Silvia ;-) . We were supplied with a gate key to facilitate 24/7 access to/from the secured grounds of the property. Chris is very knowledgeable about the local area and kindly offered transport to the local supermarket on the first day to 'stock the larder' with heavy items, pointing out key shops and landmarks along the way. The centre of Nea Makri is only about 800m - but far enough away so as not to carry sounds of the active night life. 500-600m will get you to a local bakery with dairy products located on the main high street along with a myriad of quality shops - not your typical tourist tat. Unfortunately I don't speak Greek but Chris, who is British also speaks a number of languages and helped us with a few key words - I found using Yassas as the first word of a sentence when I first spoke to anyone, went down well with the locals. We were attending my Sons wedding with other family members booked into the other suites so I was able to see that the high standard of accommodation ran throughout all of the property. Although we were focused on the wedding Chris kindly educated us on a lot of the local history - I would say better than the paid tourist guides. All in all a very enjoyable experience and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Villa Verde to everyone. Thanks Chris and Silvia.

“Relaxing, friendly,”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have just returned from a two week holiday at Villa Verde. I can highly recommend the Villa Verde to anyone wants a true Greek experience while on holiday. The apartments are set in a medium size town just over a hour from Athens. There is a lovely blue flag beach at the far end of the town, and all the locals we meet were very kind and friendly. Chris and Silvia were wonderful hosts, very helpful, Chris helped us sort out a hire car, taking us to the airport to pick it up. Silvia is a lovely lady, she keeps the apartments spotless and is always smiling. Her garden is very pretty.
A visit to Athens is a must do, so much to see and easy to get to (with instructions from Chris) on the local bus and metro.
We will be back!

“Very clean place and very friendly and helpful owners”

person found this review helpful

Nice appartments, cleaned every day, on the ground floor of a beautiful villa, surrounded by a beautiful garden. In walking distance of the beach and about an hour by bus and metro from the center of Athens. The owners are very kind and helpful, which is very welcome when you're travelling alone and don't have a car. They picked me up at the airport, showed me the best places in town and even drove me to an archaelogical site to go see; in other words, did more than enough to make sure I had a convenient time!
Nea Makri is beautiful and an hour from Athens is ok, but with the last bus back going at 10:30, I sometimes wished I had been a bit closer to the center. So if you're looking to go out, you'll need to pay for a taxi back, which will cost you at least 30 euros. Apart from that, this place is superb!

“Chris Rocks!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Booking a last-moment break can be stressful as we all know. But Chris was really helpful and reassuring from the moment we contacted him. The pleasant surprises continued when we arrived there, as the villa looks every bit like in the pictures -- even better, if add up the magnificent scent of the Villa Verde's amazing garden, full of Mediterranean flowers and plants. The room was impeccable, modern, cleverly designed and functional. The whole place was welcoming, and Chris and Sylvia were always around ready to go the extra-mile to make us feel better than at home.
There is wifi internet, but frankly, Chris himself can offer you insight and advice much better and faster than the web. Our only regret was we couldn't spend more time in Greece, and make use of the fantastic hospitality offered by the Feathers. Thanks Chris, thanks Sylvia. We aim to come back, but until then, we highly recommend this strategically located place to anyone who wants a little of everything: close to the wonders of Athens, in the proximity to several beaches (Schineas is magnificent) and adjacent to the beautiful Nea Makri's cozy fishing harbor, where fish tavernas and restaurants offer a splendid choice of foods and drinks.

“Good location, clean, wonderful garden.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our time at Villa Verde was better than I´ve ever imagined, a green garden with flowers everywhere, a clean studio, nice landlords, a local beach 600 footsteps from the house. Down at the harbour there´s a sandier beach, but the local one is ok. The cats were loved by my daughter, but if you leave them alone they´ll do the same, so there´s no problem if you don´t like cats.

Everything that´s on the website is 100% true and both Chris and Sylvia are very helpful with any questions or requests you might have.

Going to Athens on a daytrip is easy, buses are running every hour and Villa Verde is located 500 meters from a busstop. But don´t forget the wonderful muncipality of Marathon, Chris knows a lot of everything worth knowing about that area, and we can´t thank him enough for bringing us on a little tour around Marathon. :-)

We´ll be back next year for sure.
