About Muriel

My name is Muriel. I am Belgian (from French father and Dutch mother), I spent part of my youth in Spain, and my husband is Greek. I speak French, Spanish, English and Greek fluently and my Italian is not bad...

After studying French and Spanish philology and translation of Spanish writers, after teaching French and Spanish literature to teenage students and to foreigners, after working several years for the Agriculture Section of the Embassy of Argentina in Brussels, after raising my three children, I have finally found a job that combines my passion for languages, for real estate, for cosmopolitan contacts and for Greece: I rent my luxurious villa on the island of Skiathos to clients coming from all over the world and I try to offer them the best holiday.

In my opinion, it is important for a person who wishes to rent a villa that he doesn’t know at all to find someone who will carefully listen to him and who will answer to his questions and his needs. That’s why I am very happy when my future guests call me and I invite them to do so. I always try to give them the most detailed, accurate and honest information about my villa.

After their arrival, I always send a welcome message to make sure that my villa meets their expectations. If they have some specific needs, I try to satisfy them, in a reasonable way, and I am reachable at any moment in case of problem.

From the moment I receive your first enquiry to the moment you leave Villa Cassiopee, my team on-site and I will be there to inform you and to help you.

Why Muriel chose Thessaly

In fact, 19 years ago, we fell in love with this absolutely peaceful location and this stunning view to the Aegean sea and to the beautiful hills with a gorgeous Mediterranean vegetation. We bought a piece of land on the top of a hill, with no concrete road, no water, no fence, no electricity and of course, no house. With a lot of work and love, we built the beautiful villa Cassiopee, which is, as I often say, our fourth child!

What makes this villa unique

What do I love in my villa? The cicada songs, the starry nights, the view all around, the fact that I have no neighbor, the fact that it is very large and I can invite at the same time my mother-in-law, my teenage kids and their friends and my own friends. Everybody finds his place and privacy. The fact that I can hear loud music if I want without bothering anybody. The fact that I have chosen carefully each piece of furniture which has its own story for me. Villa Cassiopee is not only a holiday rental, it's my home in Greece and my guests feel that.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Everything is absolutely beautiful and exceeds our expectations. Jacques has been very helpful with the few minor items we needed .

We particularly enjoy the solitude up on the hillside in the early mornings and late afternoons.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 7, 4 over 50, 3 between18-25 years old.

The villa was a wonderful place to gather for a family holiday. It was peaceful beautiful and relaxing yet near all facilities. Everything was great and as expected from the villa description, photos and the previous reviews.

Jacques made us very welcome, he is delightful and could not do have been more helpful. Maria too was lovely and very much in the background at the times she was there. We felt looked after without intrusion.

Muriel has been very professional. In all the years of renting holiday homes, I have never had such, prompt, efficient, helpful and genuinely friendly service from start to finish.

Muriel's restaurant recommendations were brilliant, especially Olive Thea which sits on highest point of the island, you can see all the neighbouring islands and brilliant food, a memorable evening. Memorable holiday.

It all adds up to a great ambiance at a much loved villa. Highly recommended.

Would definitely return to this beautiful villa.

Beautiful private villa, amazing views and pool

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, idyllic villa set in peaceful countryside overlooking the sea. 10 mins walk to nearby tavernas and supermarket. Ideal place for our party of mixed ages. The pool was lovely and a really good size and facilities in the villa were excellent. Lots of places to relax in sun and shade - the weather was very hot! Well maintained and would definitely recommend, especially for a family gathering such as ours.

Wonderful holiday in a superb villa

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, our experience was excellent.

All administration before & after our holiday was handled very quickly by Muriel, & she was available by phone before we booked to answer all our questions. Everything was thought through, to make our stay as easy & comfortable as possible, including transfers to & from the airport & delivery of the hire cars to the villa.

On arrival, through the holiday & on departure, Jacques was available if required, to help with any information or support required.

We were a party of 5 - 2 parents, 2 grandparents & a 4 year old. The villa & grounds were spacious enough for us to be together when we wanted to be, or have our own space to relax.

The villa was well furnished inside & out, with lots of very comfortable places to sit & relax, on the terraces, by the pool, or by the BBQ. The gardens were well maintained, & the cleaning ladies kept the villa spotless. The glass fences also meant safety without loss of the wonderful view.

The villa was up on the hillside, totally private & not overlooked by any other villas, with a wonderful view to the sea & mountains beyond. Whether during the day or at night, sitting on the terrace was so peaceful & relaxing. A view that you would never tire of.

The steps into the pool made it very safe for our toddler & mother. & there were numerous types of sunbeds & chairs to either soak up the sun or cool off in the shade.

It was just a short drive to the local village, where there were numerous tavernas for very good evening meals & a supermarket for supplies.

All in all, a wonderful villa for our family to spend 2 weeks in. Exactly what we were looking for. & the only problem was that we had to return home......

Thank you Muriel & Jacques. We hope to see you again soon.

A Very Happy Family from South Wales, UK.

A Jewell Among Skiathos's Green Foothills

  • 5 of 5

Group of 8 all back home safely, still smiling at the memories of a great week in Skiathos!

Everything was to our expectation and more, both with the villa and the activities organised by the hosts there.

We took in many of the suggestions kindly provided by the owner – Mandraki beach, Bakaliko restaurant, tennis games at the tennis club etc – and found them all to be wonderful. Best of all was the day trip with Tommy and his boat, stopping at the blue cave, Lalaria beach and cocktails at Mystique Bar on Ampelakia Bay. We all thought Tommy was an ideal skipper – so friendly and laid back. We did not end up ‘disturbing’ the main host Jacques much but when called upon he was always helpful and knowledgeable.

Much thanks goes to owner Muriel for her excellent assistance in the booking and planning of the stay, and facilitating our residence in this special villa.

I will recommend this accommodation to any friends and colleagues enquiring about holidays not just in Skiathos, but the whole of Greece.

A wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time at Villa Cassiopée. First of all, it's really a pleasure dealing with Muriel who is very organized and extremely helpful.

The villa has a perfect location close to the Agia Paraskevi beach, but not far from town either. There are lots of tavernas and shops close-by that are very handy. The road to the villa winds up and around but it's properly paved - not a problem. We rented a jeep - it's more fun on this mountainous island! The villa was impeccablly clean and it was a pleasure to see Maria who was in charge of housekeeping. Jacques is indeed a wonderful contact person. He's very helpful, personable and intervenes immediately if there is a need.

The Villa Cassiopée is really a family home, not just a vacation rental and you can feel it. It's very comfortable, well-equipped (lots of dishes, proper wine glasses,dishwasher, toaster, coffee machines, washing machine and iron ...) and beautifully decorated. It was ideal for us with our adult children - we each had our own space, living room, bathroom (there are 5 in the house - a real plus).

The pool area is fabulous and after a morning at the beach and lunch in a taverna, it was heavenly coming back, far from the crowds to enjoy the pool and just take in the extraordinary panorama.

We followed Muriel's advice and tried some of her favourite restaurants and were never disappointed. The Taverna at Kanapitsa Beach was one of our favourites. Olive Land was excellent as well. And we went several times to Bakalika in the port and it was very good. We took Muriel's advice and went to Mandraki Beach to watch the sun set one evening (being French, we brought along a bottle of champagne and some Greek Olives) - it was magical!

Our thanks to Muriel, Jacques and Maria who really contributed to making our holiday special. We definitely recommend the villa Cassiopée and hope to come back soon!

P.S. We left a DVD of Mamma Mia behind - whoever goes to Skiathos should definitely watch it!! ;-)

Lovely Villa and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa really is as good as the photos suggest. We had a family holiday over a three week period with various members of the family coming for one week, two weeks, or three weeks. It worked extremely well !

The villa's location is fantastic - a short drive from Skiathos town and the airport but up in the hills with a fantastic view and plenty of privacy.

Many family members walked down to the tavernas that were on the road at the bottom of the hill but you need to be "keen" to walk BACK on a hot day ! There are four or five tavernas within walking distance and a couple of small "supermarkets".

The villa itself is a lovely layout being built into the hillside to some extent. It is on three levels with each room having a terrace outside with seating. There are five different areas that can be used and in our case the children tended to use the upper balcony and some of the adults (me !) preferred the quieter lower level with a little more peace and quiet and access to cool beer in the lower kitchen area.

The owners agent of the island (Jacques) is wonderful. A friendly, helpful man that knows the island and is always happy to help - he was the icing on the cake. The housekeeper was also lovely. She cleaned spotlessly twice a week and helped us order a full family meal from a local taverna which we then laid out on the balcony table to enjoy as a full family - a memorable evening.

Perfect villa, perfect location, great weather, friendly locals, wonderful beaches, boats to hire, restaurants up in the hills, lovely owner, helpful local contacts. A wonderful holiday that was enjoyed by all.
