“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.

“Fantastic Way to Re-visit”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I returned to Nea Makri after 20 years and this time brought my partner to see the sights of Athens and although the town has changed, it was still very familiar. Chris and Sylvia have a beautiful home with fantastic gardens and went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Chris has an amazing wealth of knowledge of the area which he is more than happy to share. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Villa Verde to anyone thinking of visiting Athens.

“Wonderful Stay in Greece”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed with Chris and Sylvia for 12 days early in May and I cannot say enough about how great it was. We chose Villa Verde to have a base from which to travel around the rest of Greece without staying in Athens. It turned out to be the perfect choice.

Chris and Sylvia are very friendly and helpful and the place was beautiful and clean. Chris gave us wonderful advice about what we could do, where we could go, and how to make arrangements. We left wanting to stay longer and do more. Hope we get a chance to go back and stay there again!

Thanks, Bill for taking the time to post your review. I think that you and Darlene relaxed around our garden and our locality a bit more than you had intended, rather than getting around all the places you had planned to visit. The good news is that you now have good reasons to return one day to see the places you missed this time! We very much hope you're able to do that.

“Hands down the best stay we had during our vacation in Greece”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Chris and Silvia have nice and quiet studios in a quiet location, and within 5 minutes walking distance of the bakery and 10 minutes to other shops in Nea Makri. It is near Athens, which is very accessible by bus (bus stop at 5 minutes walking). The big advantage of using the bus during weekdays is that you avoid the impossible Athens traffic jams, and not being able to park your car. Within Athens, moving around is easy with the underground.
The rooms are great, Silvia's garden is like a small paradise, and great restaurants are within walking distance.
The undisclosed secret is that Chris speaks several languages, including Greek, and during his long time stay in the area, is like a walking encyclopaedia. Not only was his advice about what is interesting spot-on, he also enabled us to discover spots we would have missed otherwise. He even helped us with phoning Greeks and acting as a translator.
The bottom line is that not only you get a five star accommodation at a great location, you also get a free guide who can really add value to your stay. This makes the value for money you get unsurpassable.
Thanks very much Chris and Sylvia for making our stay so pleasant that we stayed much longer than originally planned!
PS: this is the only place out of all our stays in Greece where wi-fi worked fast and reliable.

Susan and Peter arrived as strangers and left as good friends. Guests like these really do make all our efforts worthwhile and justify our decision to share our little corner of Greece with others. I learned from Peter yet another good reason to visit Nea Makri, to find parts to restore rare old motorbikes! Thanks for your very kind comments and we hope to see you again one day.

We stayed in a studio at Villa Verde for 3 nights. Chris and Sylvia, the owners of the villa, are very hospitable and we feld like home. The studio was very clean and had soms space, in contrast to the moderate hotelrooms. We are people who like to be in the city of Athens for one day and furthermore be walking along the various beaches with a lovely sea view. We were also very glad that Chris had the time to drive us through the landscape and could show us some amazing sites as the Palini cave, the archeological museum of Marathon, the lake of Marathon and the beach of Schinias.
The villa is located on a peacefull place so we feld relaxed when we flew back home. We have seen a lot and would recommend a stay at Chris and Sylvia for everyone who likes to see te city of Athens, but also loves nature and culture.

It's fairly easy to be sure that our guests enjoy their holidays with us in the summer, more difficult in the winter. We enjoy taking people around our local places of interest and we'd like to thank Natasja and Siemen for their appreciation of our efforts..

“Cozy, super clean accommodations with friendly, helpful hosts.”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I stayed at this lovely Villa with my young daughter. I loved how safe the fenced in grounds were, a plus with a little one. The house is beautifully built and modern with amazing gardens. So many beautiful plants, roses, birds of paradise and more. A fig tree with delicious fruit the owners shared. Tiny peppers and tomatoes growing here and there, just lovely. The room was simple and accommodating with all you need to cook in room meals. A small but lovely bathroom and lots of closets and storage. The owners, a couple who live on the property were charming and helpful. Sylvia cleaned the rooms daily and did an exceptional job. Adding personal touches, a fresh cut rose now and then, a gift of fresh figs sometimes. Chris was an endless font of information on the area, the surroundings the local transportation to and from points of interest. The only criticisms I might make are that the local beaches are very rocky so bring swimming shoes for sure! you won't find them locally. Also, the dogs on their lane bark, without fail, whenever someone comes or goes from the Villa. This is an issue on most streets in the area, not just there's. There are no Laundromats in the area so be prepared to wash laundry by hand. Overall Villa Verd`e is a great place to stay and Chris & Sylvia were great people to meet. They in fact, introduced us to many lovely people during our stay. We also especially enjoyed meeting their cats, my daughter still asks about them.

Thanks, Rebecca, for your comments. We're always happy to put guests' washing through our own machine so hand washing isn't necessary. Since Rebecca and Charlotte visited us we've found a local supplier of beach shoes. Pleas note that our cats are not allowed inside the studios and they will not normally go near anyone who does not encourage them.
