We had a wonderful time at Marili apartments. As other holidaymakers have reported, Marina and her family really go out of their way to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible - leaving you with nothing to do but relax! Marina is just a natural hostess, very friendly and attentive without being intrusive and full of great advice on where to go and what to see. We really enjoyed our daily chats and the odd tipple together!
The studio apartment itself was bright, clean and nicely decorated with new mattresses and bedclothes and windows with mosquito screens. The kitchen was functional with a counter fridge, 2 electric hobs and a coffee maker. We hadn't realised that the apartments were serviced so it was a bonus to be provided with clean towels on a regular basis and always come back to cleanliness. We had a terrace overlooking the lovely communal garden which was an olive grove with a seating area in the middle with barbecue facilities and then hammocks conveniently placed to the side :)
We loved the 'famous Parasporos beach'. From Marili, we walked along the main road for about 5 minutes before turning off down the road to the nearest beach which was Delfini and continuing on along a lovely coastal path to Parasporos. The main road is fine but you have to be a bit careful - the same as walking in the countryside in all countries, there are no footpaths so you have to step in when cars approach. There is another path directly from Marili apartments to Parasporos but it was being cleared the week we were there in early June - I presume it's done now. On Parasporos, we stayed by the beach club and enjoyed the free sun loungers and the waitress service on the beach. Parikia is about a 15 minute walk, the old town is gorgeous and we had good food everywhere but particularly enjoyed Aromas down past the port. So Marili is nicely situated in that everything is easily accessible.
I've never written a review before but a stay at Marili apartments is really special and I'd recommend it to friends and family - enjoy!
Thanks Marina! Juliana & Liz
