    Share our new and ecologically friendly villa and garden, very close to the beach in the green and pleasant town of Nea Makri. Silvia is originally from the Ukraine and Chris from England. We designed and built Villa Verde in 2008-09, with some help from local architects and builders. The house is built to very high environmental standards. Geothermal energy provides most of our heating and cooling needs. Very large solar panels provid...

    Additional Location Information
    Nea Makri is a green and pleasant seaside town around one hour by bus from Athens city centre and half an hour from Athens International Airport. We call it Athens with a breath of fresh air. It’s a great place for a short break or for a quiet and relaxing seaside holiday, situated on the eastern Attica coast between the port of Rafina and the small town of Marathon, famous for its ancient battle and the associated long distance road race.

    The central harbour is around ten minutes walk from Villa Verde and the main town square in the busy commercial district is five minutes further. Many cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and banks are within easy walking distance. There are small beaches as little as 150 metres from our home and there are more extensive and sandier beaches in the area of the harbour. A few hundred metres north of the town is a European Union classified “Blue Flag” beach with proven cleanliness and with lifeguard and other facilities. Fifteen minutes away by car is th...

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... more

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... more

Management response:

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... more

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... more
