We could not expect less. We already knew the family and the place. We stayed at the Marva for 7 days and I could easily say it was the best. The weather was great and the apartments looked better than ever. A few changes inside and outside, new furniture for the studios and brand new A/C units in every room....

We arrived at the Marva this summer and did not expect more then the price we had paid for this week. The people who worked there were nice and helpful. Its an ok garden with a pool and sunbeds, and from our balcony we had a nice view overlooking the mountains. The location of the Marva was hard to find....

Nice little pool, good location really close to everything. LIDL just around the corner with cheap food and alcohol. The beach is really nice, really...

We visited 8th -15th September hoping for peace and tranquility after a difficult summer. That's exactly what Marva delivered. The family were there on site if you needed them but not obtrusive. A fan was provided for €10 because the heat was oppressive on a night. We soon settled into a routine of walking down to Lidl on a morning...

One of the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. Appartments are basic yes, but clean and more than enough for a self catering holiday. Gardens are well cared for by the family and the pool is well maintained and clean. Yes when you are first dropped off it is a little decieving but cetainly not what one or two...

We are a family of 5, 3 children 15, 13 and 10 and this was a brilliant base for us. On arrival the surrounding area does look a bit rough around the edges but the Greek magic soon starts to kick in.

We have just returned from our fifth very enjoyable holiday ay Marva & platanes. We find these apartments are ideal for us - they are in a quiet area with a nice pool & gardens & the owners offer Greek hospitality. There are a few drinks sold on site but no real bar - which suits us fine - we...
