Our home

Our apartment is in Nea Makri, which is a small resort near Marathon, on the Gulf of Evia and with a backdrop of beautiful Mount Penteli. The apartment is light and airy and takes up the whole first floor of a modern detached house. It is on a quiet, leafy lane one road back from the sea - and the sea is about two minute's walk away. The seafront immediately in front of the house has open air cafes and fish tavernas. Five minutes' walk along the shore brings you to sandy beaches with palm trees. The apartment is 90 sq. m. and has a large area comprising living room, dining room and kitchen, tastefully laid out and spacious. They lead onto a balcony at the front. There is one double bedroom, looking out onto trees. If another bed is needed, there is a bed-settee in the living room, or a folded bed can be put up in another room which was built as a second bedroom, but has been used more as a study. However, in the heat of summer the apartment is more comfortable with only two people staying. Facilities include air-conditioning in all rooms, WiFi internet connection, flat-screen TV, washing machine, cooker, microwave, DVD and CD players. There are twelve steps up to the front door from the garden. One bicycle is available. Another can be rented from nearby. Fresh fish can be bought in the early morning off the fishing boats in the small harbour close to the apartment. From Rafina, a port 6 miles south of Nea Makri, there are daily ferries to some of the Cycladic Islands - Andros, Tinos, Mykonos.

Property features

Who we are

  1. Sue is a writer, lately a busy grandmother, always a classical musician, who loves the countryside, especially coastal or lakeland locations. Philip is a retired civil engineer who loves walking, sailing and opera. We enjoy exploring new countries and mixing in different cultures, but recently we cannot fly further than Europe. We are English, but have lived in Greece for many years and have had over thirty delightful exchanges in England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, France, Canada, Estonia, Holland and Belgium. We would look after your home as if it were our own, and can supply references. We are looking for exchanges in the UK and Ireland for late June, July and early August - (could be non-simultaneous) - but are open to offers. We would also like to go to France or Andalucia one spring.
