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!

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 29 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.

The property is ideally located both from the central Athens and the airport. We stayed nine days at Villa Verde which is very close from the sea and all the amenities are stone throw distance. We have traveled as a family about 25 countries around the world so we always careful we pick up the right property.

We hired a car from the airport which is not essential because we wanted to visit many places with our two young children aged 8 and 11 years old. We went to central Athens which is about 45 minutes drive for acropolis museum, acropolis etc. We also went Mateora and stayed one night and on the way back we stopped in Delphi. We also visited Corinth castle, Corinth Canal, Marathon museum, Marathon dam and many other places.

Chris and Sylvia are such an excellent hosts and we felt like from home to home. Each individual studios has everything you can think of and we found even toilet tissues, mineral water upon our arrival. We simply could not ask anything more from them and we will be pleased to back in the future.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I just spent a week at Villa Verde. I do a lot of research before going on vacation to make sure that the experience goes as well as it possibly can. The reviews of this place were all positive and they were very accurate. This is by far the best host that we have stayed with, and we travel frequently. This is not the place for party animals, but if you want a restful vacation with very nice and knowledgeable people who go out of their way to make your stay pleasant, then you've found the right place.

Chris and Sylvia are very conscientious and Chris is a wealth of information about the area. He speaks Greek and assists with everything you need, from transportation from and to the airport to a tour of the locality with a history lesson to boot. Sylvia checks in to make sure that everything is to your liking and if there is something you need that they don't have they will get it for you. Thank you Chris and Sylvia for a great time and we will definitely be back.

Many people say that travellers from the USA are the most difficult to please and Colleen is a very experienced traveller. To receive such a positive review is therefore extremely gratifying for us. We very much look forward to your next visit to Villa Verde, or to helping you find what you're looking for in other parts of Greece.

“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.
