“Friendly and welcoming host family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012 via mobile

This place is run by a warm and helpful family. They really make you feel at home and relax. The apartment was big and with a lovely balcony overlooking the court yard. Restaurants and the village is just a short walk away and beaches are within walking distance as well. Everybody in the village seem laid back and friendly. I strongly recommend this place!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Excellent value and the owners are very nice. The room is a good size and equipped to a reasonable standard. Not luxurious but reasonable. The area is pretty but quiet. We went in May which was too early as most tavernas were still closed. I was told that it's better to go in June onwards. The best nearby beach is about 1km north of the town. Park near some posh houses and walk about 50m thru a small wooded area.

We visited Gikas apartments in June 2011. Everything was as it should be.

Pleasant and quiet location, still very near to the coastline for a nice walk in the evening and a good enough beach is within walking distance.

Clean and spacious room and bathroom. A/C and TV are obvious to be included, but the room was also equipped with a fridge, hot plates plus glasses, plates etc., everything you need to cook your own meal, or maybe warm up milk for an infant.

Polite staff, very eager to help us find our way in Evia and not miss any sights we shouldn't miss.

Breakfast served in a nice environment (the front yard), in the right quality and quantity.

The price was really good, too. The whole experience was definitely worth the price we paid for and Gikas appartments could very well be our choice again when we come back to South Evia.

Regarding the area, Marmari is a great place to relax and you will have a great time there. However, to fully enjoy your stay there you will need a car to visit nearby areas and explore more of South Evia. An SUV is recommended, as the roads are definitely not the best. Good place to be used as a base, though.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2008

May 2008: This appartment is simple and clean, the area relaxing and the view splendid. It can be a bit cool at night in this season; the heating is a good thing! Marmari and the neighbour village Karystos are small, but beautiful. Some knowledge of the Greek language is of advantage when getting in contact with the locals. Impressing beach in Marmari - a paradise for painters....Capital Chalkida is gorgeous!
Mr. Elpidoforos is an uncomplicated, welcoming, friendly and helpful person. His sweet dog Emma is a lovely and peaceful pet - one is tempted to take her out for walks :-) If you want to spend relaxing holidays during a non-crowded season in a Greek village that has still remained Greek, this appartment can be more than advised.
