Description from owner
Villa Verde offers hotel style service with self-catering facilities. A bonus is free airport transfers and local transportation. We’re certified by the Greek National Tourist Organisation and subject to periodic inspections to ensure that we continue to deliver their ‘3-key’ standards. We thoroughly clean your studio every day and we regularly change towels and bed linen. Under Greek law, non-certified apartments are not allowed to do any of that. We have received awards for exceptional customer service from Booking_com, TripAdvisor, and Travel & Hospitality Awards of the UK.
We designed and built Villa Verde in 2008-09. The house is built to very high environmental standards. Geothermal energy provides most of our heating and cooling needs. Large solar panels provide hot water for personal use. Water from a well is used for our well-stocked garden, a very special feature of our villa. We live upstairs whilst on the ground floor we have four self-contained guest studios. Two of those can be linked for family use. We're at the end of a very small road that leads nowhere. There's no traffic and there is plenty of safe car parking space immediately outside our villa.
We're just 200 metres from the beach and the nearest excellent tavernas. Our local beach is a bit rocky but there are sandier beaches a short walk away. The superb sandy beach at Schinias, backed by pine forest, is only served by bus in mid summer. It's around 20 minutes drive for guests who have a car. It's probably around an hour's bike ride away. Nea Makri town centre with banks, shops and supermarkets is around one kilometre away, as is the harbour where fishing trips are available. There's a big choice of restaurants/tavernas and cafe bars around town. Every Thursday morning there's a big street market offering a lot of locally grown produce. Around 500 metres from home are bus stops for Athens, Marathon, the ferry for Evia island, a great day trip, and in mid-summer Schinias beach. We're just a few kilometres away from Marathon with its small but excellent archaeological museum and the Tomb of the Athenians from the 490 BC battle, Guests with cars can also visit Marathon Lake and the Ramnous archaeological site. The wetlands of the Schinias National Park have an amazing range of bird life through the winter. We will happily take guests without a car on a local tour. It's an easy drive to many famous archaeological sites including Delphi, Corinth, Mycenae and Epidavros.

Response from the owner 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.

“A beautiful place to stay...”
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 c… More
Response from the owner 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
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 rea… More
Response from the owner 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 thei… More
Response from the owner 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”
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 seasi… More
Response from the owner 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.
“Excellent location and fantastic host”
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 hav… More
Response from the owner Thank you Ahsan for posting such a detailed review. You certainly made the most of your winter stay with us by travelling to many special places. We look forward to your next visit when you can see some of the famous places that you missed this time like Epidavros, Nafplio, Mycenae and Nemea.
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 al… More
Response from the owner 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”
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 laundr… More
Response from the owner Thank you John for taking the time to post such a detailed and positive review. It was truly a great pleasure getting to know you and your family and we very much look forward to your next visit if you decide to come back one day.
“Ideal für Leute, die Kultur und Erholung verbinden wollen”
Durch die Strandnähe, die absolut ruhige Lage (Sackgasse) bei gleichzeitiger Nähe zu Athen (Naherholungsgebiet der Athener) und vielen antiken Stätten, besonders aber wegen der in jeder… More
Response from the owner Thanks Bartelt! I'm sure GPS helps a lot but we always provided detailed maps and directions to help our guests find their way, wherever they want to go. Hoping to see you again soon.
