  • We decided to have our destination wedding at Delenia after seeing it listed in AirBNB’s Top 40. We contacted Chryssa and from the beginning she has been nothing but a wonderful host and contact for all the details we needed to plan our wedding. With her recently renovated barn we were able to accommodate 22 guests. The villa is remote and because Greece is a cash-based society make sure to get all the Euros you need prior to taking the ferry to the island of Evvia, and if you choose to rent a car make sure it’s 4 wheel drive. However, the remoteness of the villa added to its beauty and magic. Our friends, family and ourselves had a wonderful time and the wedding went smoothly with all the vendors able to get to the villa and surpassed all of our expectations. The villa staff – Bette, Ilias and Katrine – were extremely warm, friendly and helpful. We’ll miss them as much as the villa itself! For further details and photos of the wedding see the link to my blog (website hidden)

  • I want to say thank you to Chryssa and all staff of the villa for made our wedding unforgettable and our 4 days at the villa were such wonderful. Chryssa all the time was really helpful and ready to solve all our problems.
    We arrived on Thursday and until we get to the villa I saw in which delighted all my family was, ranging from trip on the ferry boat and ending with views that opened from the villa’s windows. Ilias met us at the port with 3 taxis on time and we arrived to the villa without any troubles. We were met by comfortable rooms, great Greek breakfast for 16 people and friendly Betty, Ilias, Katerina and Chryssa. Everyone was so kind and friendly, everything was perfect.
    On Friday we had a wedding, and Ilias met a coordinator of ceremony, catering, photographer, sertaki dancers and all the time was ready to help. I really don’t know what we did without Ilias. He is a soul of the villa for sure. Our wedding was more better then I wished it in my dream.
    All the days Betty prepared for us really good food, traditional greek, but always interested in our tastes. It was hard, I think, to feed 16 people, but she did it amazingly good.
    On Saturday we had a rest and relaxed in jakuzzi, swam in the swimming pool with sea water and just enjoyed our life. In the afternoon Ilias showed us how to catch sea urchins and got a caviar from it. All villa’s men were very impressed of it. Then Ilias showed us how to prepare greek sacivi souse and all women of the villa were impressed of master class. And in the evening he made a barbeque for us. It was really delicious and funny.
    On Sunday in the morning we had to go to Athens, but neither me and my husband nor our parents didn’t want to leave such a beautiful place where we all became a real big family. 4 days at the villa were the most memorable in the life of our relatives.
    Ilias, Betty and Chryssa thank you so much for everything. Because of you, my friends, and people from transfer company we fell in love to Greece. You are the best! Our wedding couldn’t be better.
    By the way, barn is very cozy and nice place. I advice Chryssa and all her staff to you. You will never worry about your choice.

She helped so much with the arrangement of all the transportation and activities (cooking class, day trip into Athens) despite bring injured!

    We definitely plan to return again....maybe a future anniversary!

  • My family had a fabulous stay at Villa Delenia. The natural beauty of the location is only surpassed by the fabulous accommodation and outstanding hospitality provided by Elizavet and Vassilis, the couple who make dinner and keep the house for Chryssa. The Villa is a remarkable and imaginative environment which can be enjoyed by all generations. Chryssa was extremely approachable in helping us arrange our holiday and we had an unforgettable time.

  • Great location, comfortable apartment, reasonable cost, and best of all, Chryssa is a great hostess. If you want to experience "living in Athens", this is the best of all options. Highly recommended.

About
I'm half-Greek, half-Brazilian, born in London. Currently live in Athens, and am trying to keep alive my dad's Aegean island villa, on Evia. I love the 'travel like a human' idea, and am planning a trip to India, on the way to Nepal to visit my family in Kathmandu. I've enjoyed hosting, and am now looking forward to being a guest. I am clean, quiet and don't snore!
