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, 20 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.

Fantastic villa with outstanding views!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon booking villa Cassiopee the communication with Muriel run so smoothly, she was so promt to answer any questions and provided so much information on the villa, beaches and eating out which came in very handy!

We stayed as a family of 8, my husband, parents and 4 teenage children. I was a little apprehensive booking a seperate villa and flights as we usually do package holidays but everything was so easy that I would definitely do this again, and certainly return to villa Cassiopee.

The lovely Jacques was waiting for us at the airport, he gave us a nice warm welcome! He took all of our luggage and gave us our cars, we followed him up to the villa, only around a 10-15 minute drive, and the roads are very good!

The villa itself is stunning, loads of room and nooks to lose yourself from the rest of the group, we stayed on the lower ground floor with my parents so we had our own kitchen, living room and lovely quiet terraces away from the lively children who all stayed on the middle floor.

The villa is nicely decorated and feels like home from home.

The pool is huge, lots of room for all 8 of us to swim and play games. The views from the pool area and outdoor dining areas were breathtaking!!!

I have to mention the Taverna Maistrali, this was situated on the small road up to the villa just a couple of minutes away. This is a family run traditional Greek restaurant, Muriel recommended it to us.

We probably ate here 90% of our 10 day stay :) not only is the food outstanding but the service and the atmosphere was 10 out of 10.

We even ordered pizzas and salads to take up to our villa when we had been out all day. Breakfast was also the best we found!

Overall we had an amazing holiday, we didn't want to leave so a HUGE thank you to Muriel and Jacques for a unforgettable experience.

Fabulous experience

  • 5 of 5

The whole experience from my initial enquiry to booking and staying at Villa Cassiopee was fabulous. The personal experience you feel is fabulous with Muriel in booking and then the experience at the villa is excellent. You will not find a better villa on Skiathos. Jacques will make your experience perfect. Whatever you need, he will be there. I would recommend Villa Cassiopee most highly. If you want to stay on Skiathos, this is the villa you want!

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Muriel

I thought I would drop you a line just to let you know how we all thoroughly enjoyed staying at your villa. On arrival we were so pleased; the villa is more beautiful than the pictures and so spacious! There were 12 of us and at no point did we feel on top of each other. The two kitchens worked extremely well, the younger ones had the lower ground area, which was great to give them some of their own space, it was very newly decorated and had a lovely modern kitchen and beautiful lounge area.

The rest of us used the middle and upper floors where the bedrooms and main living area were traditional Greek style. The main living area and kitchen had everything we could possible need, leading out onto the wonderful terrace with fantastic views, here we at most as it was a lovely cool spot and could seat all 12 of us. Also on this terrace were comfy sofas and a chaise lounge, with gorgeous lanterns and flowering plants.

Jacques and Mary were great, Jacques was most helpful getting us to and from the airport and Mary came late morning which suited the youngsters who wanted to lie in, she was very friendly and kept us nice and tidy with lovely fresh towels and bedding as often as we would like. She even collected our first meal and brought it to the villa for us, as well as organising a birthday cake for one of our party, nothing was too much trouble for them.

We hired an extra Suzuki Jimny, therefore we had 3 altogether, and this was perfect to show our party how lovely the island was and to bob into town for the evening. We ate at the local restaurants, the food and service was super. We even went and collected lunch a few times, toasted sandwiches were only 2.50 euros each, fantastic pizzas and Greek salad.

The pool area is much larger than I expected, there is a specious lawn, great for games and the little one to run around on, the pool itself has steps leading into it, this made it much safer for our two senior ladies to get in and out of. I have to say the water was a great temperature, cold enough to refresh you but not too cold for the little one. There was plenty of shade from two very large pool side umbrellas as well as two trees you could sit under, whilst relaxing reading a book or keep the baby cool while having his afternoon nap.

Thank you Muriel and team for letting us unwind and dream a little in your lovely villa, we would love to come again next year.

Love the Graham family x

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.
