“Amazing villa in an ideal location on a beautiful island”
Reviewed 23 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

A beautiful villa, in an ideal location, with beaches, shops and tavernas only a short drive away. We felt very much at home in the villa, which was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with everything we needed for a perfect holiday. There was a good information pack, giving details of local amenities restaurants, shops, etc., and which recommended many lovely places to visit during our stay. The pool was very well maintained. There were six sun beds, plus a great BBQ and table and chairs for dining outdoors.
St. George's castle is well worth a visit, with stunning views and great photo opportunities.
Argostoli is great for shops (fresh produce, clothes and souvenirs), good tavernas and lovely walks by the sea. We enjoyed visiting St. Thomas beach. We walked to the end and over a small hill, where there is another lovely beach, well worth a visit. We went to several restaurants and tavernas, and enjoyed our meals at all of them. One of our party needs a gluten free diet and this was provided without any problems (apart from bread - need to bring your own).
We would be very happy to recommend Villa Marbirini and hope to visit again in the future.

“The only diappointing bit was having to leave!”
Reviewed 23 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The service received on enquiring about the Villa was highly professional, we really appreciated the speed of responses via email and phone calls. It made the whole process very easy, we knew exactly what was happening at each point. The information emailed to us was detailed and exactly what we needed to know; we made our booking close to departure and it really helped us organize the rest of our trip. The directions and images that we’d been sent were very easy to follow and helped when trying to describe where we were going to the taxi driver we used to get the Villa initially.

We were met on time on arrival and were shown around the Villa, everything was clearly explained to us and we were shown how everything worked, which was definitely needed! The Villa was lovely and clean and we felt at home very quickly. The welcome hamper was great! It was exactly what we needed after a long journey and definitely above expectations. We used the information pack every day! It had everything we needed, including taxi numbers, George was great, he helped us decide what trips we were going on. We had everything we needed in the Villa, (even eggcups)! The dishwasher and washing machine were an added bonus.

Overall the facilities were great and exceeded all expectations of our group. The outdoor facilities were perfect, we loved the BBQ and had home made burgers twice during our stay. There was enough seating and sun loungers and everyone was comfortable. The pool was cleaned every day during our stay, although we were always asleep when it happened! The description of the Villa on the website perfectly describes it, if anything we were even more blown away when we got to see it in real life! We got 4 mopeds in the end, much cheaper than cars and so much easier for 8 people to zip around the island on. We really enjoyed St Thomas’s beach, the one closest to the Villa, we went to a several other beaches but this one was by far our favorite. It initially looks really small, but you can nip round the corner to a more secluded bit, and the cafes near by were great too. The locals were lovely and really appreciated our terrible attempts at speaking Greek, they were really helpful in directing us and helping us on our way

The only disappointing bit was having to leave! We had a lovely holiday and the location was ideal, we’d highly recommend it and would definitely consider re-booking!
