Guestbook comments from the owner
We were a group of up to ten adults. I was the organiser, so this is a pretty functional report. I hope others in my party will add more "holiday" gloss. The house, furnishings and equipment were first class, and the pool large and well maintained. The living areas were large enough for us to break into four groups at any one time, and we never felt crowded (and never used the back garden). When we wanted to be sociable, ten of us ate on the patio in the evenings and indoors at lunch (out of the sun) around a single table, so we could and did get together as a group easily when we wanted. The views were better than the photos show, and sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, as was the full moon rise. There was a constant cooling breeze, so the 30 degree plus temperatures felt like low twenties - perfect. The location was convenient for Athens and other mainland locations. There are four or five airlines with direct flights from London to Athens, so people could and did join and leave us through the week with no problem. It is not touristy (we could not find post cards, for example) which we loved. Shops are nearby. We had three cars for most of the time, and always at least two, so the driving was shared around. At least one car is essential.
The owners were kind, considerate and available.
We had no children, so read other reviews for that aspect. But I have ticked the box for kids, because I would have had no hesitation taking our kids there when they were young.
As organiser, I got nothing but compliments from old and young alike for the villa and its location. Overall it was better than the pictures and the written descriptions on the internet. I am sure we will go back to Marathon Star and Marathon in the future.
