Before during and after our visit we received a true VIP treatment. Nasos and Anastasia are incredible hosts and the villa is a true paradise retreat...you can arrive empty-handed, they really do think of everything. DO NOT hesitate.

Villa Marathon has given us a vacation experience we will never forget. The atmosphere surrounding it made us believe we were living in a dream. Our holiday started by a lovely welcome of Anastasia and Nasos. We were welcomed as if we were good friends. Waking up and being able to dive into the private pool brings a great start of every day. The beach, which is at 3 minutes drive, has the most perfect restaurants. The water is crystal clear and showers are present at the beach. As a guest you are warmly welcomed at every restaurant. The village Nea Makri holds lots of bars, restaurants a harbour and a lovely boulevard. Villa Marathon is a great place to stay, the house is very complete, the beds are perfect. On every corner you have a breath taking view over the land surrounding te house. A perfect holiday, in the end, 2 weeks were too short. I cannot wait to finish my photo album so I can remeber this relaxing holiday. I would advise this villa to my friends and family and we will probably return again ourselves.

The house was fantastic, very clean and in excellent condition! The pictures were very accurate and could say that in reality is even better! Anastasia and Nasos did everything prior to arrival in order to have a relaxed stay. It is an ideal destination for vacation for a couple or a group of people or a family! Worth to try and visit!

Thanks to the Nasos,owner of the Villa and his cousin Maria for a great attitude and meeting! Villa really turned out to be the same as the pictures, even better! Fantastic view from the Windows and from the swimming pool terrace is amazing. The Villa is very comfortable, modern, fully equipped with everything necessary. Very pleased that the refrigerator was prepared with a set of products for Breakfast and a bottle of champagne. The fact that the Villa is located in the reserve, near the wonderful beach and many restaurants, and in complete remoteness from roads and civilization, gives it a unique charm! We were sad to leave! Recommend-recommend-recommend, everyone not regret it!

We had such a great stay in villa marathon. The house is beautiful with a great pool and a gorgeous view from the terrace. But the best part about villa marathon are Nasos and Anastasia, who were friendly and helpful from the very beginning. We also did a yacht cruise, which we can highly recommend to everybody. We hope to come back soon

Magic place! We had a wonderful family vacation in villamarathon. Anastasia which managed our stay made us feel like at home. Villa is located in peaceful place and the views are out of this world. Paradise.. Beach and tavernas are located 15 minutes by walk, which made our stay even more relaxing. We spent the whole time on the roof of the villa from morning to evening and we already miss those wonderful moments. As well as lovely Anastasia, the owner of the property was very helpful! Nasos welcomed us warmly with a fridge full of food and a wonderful atmosphere ;) We hope to see you every summer season!

A great experience started already before the trip. Anastasia offered us to fill the kitchen with all we need for the first day (a sunday and the retailers are closed). We had a warm welcome at the airport. Anastasia picked us up and guided us to the house. The house itself is great and is well working with 4 adults and a child. you see really that the owner is loving this place. Everything worked fine. Aircondition, warm water, internet, TV, pool... We can recommend this villa!

Anastasia (who managed our stay) was exceptional from start to finish. She was always very easy to contact, provided helpful advice, was very friendly, and contributed to an awesome holiday. Villamarathon is a fantastic place to stay. The photos show the fantastic view and how well decorated the property is, but it's even better in person and is incredibly well equipped. There genuinely is a window in the living room that looks into the swimming pool! It's close to the sea, some excellent tavernas and lots of wildlife. We would really recommend staying here!

I highly recommend villamarathon, we had a wonderful time and I hope to come back in the future. Prior to our visit Anastasia made sure to answer all our questions. Once we've arrived, Nasos, the owner waited for us at the airport, he helped us with the car rend and escorted us to the villa. The villa was more beautiful that the pictures! It has a living room with a sea view and a widow to the pool. The kitchen and the hole house was fully equated with all our needs. The beds where comfortable. The private pool area is the star of the house, it has a huge deck and a large swimming pool with a panoramic view. We've ended up spending all our vacation at the villa, there was no reason to go out. Anastasia and Nasos - Thanks again for the perfect vacation
