Testimonials Authentic Greece

116) Daphne D (NL) Weekendje weg Athene, maart 2022

We had a great weekend. Goed hotel met a super location. We know we are waiting for you. Het fietsen en de foodtour waren echt geweldig. Minpuntje: we hadden nog wel een dagje langer willen blijven.

115) Helga M (IT) Zakynthos August 2021

Hi Karlien, I wanted to thank you and your collaborators too, we had a wonderful holiday in a wonderful place. I hope to meet you sooner or later 🤷‍♀️😉 anyway have a good continuation. BYE BYE
By Helga

114) Alessia Z. (IT) Zakynthos July 2021

We had a holiday in a very beautiful and quiet place Amoudi in Zakynthos. From this small village you can easily visit the most beautiful parts of the island. We took two boat excursions and rented a car, all perfectly organized by Karlien. Congratulations for the organization and the competitive prices!!!

113) Karsten, Geneve (CH) Zakynthos August 2020

Well located to discover the island, ideal to relax in privacy, clean and spacious. Beach in shortest walking distance with crystal clear waters, safe for children, good for snorkeling. Kind and attentive reception, doubtless to be recommended!

112) Francesca di Milano (IT) Zakynthos August 2020

We spent a week in Tsilivi which in my opinion is one of the most convenient points to reach any beach on the island. Near the apartment there are numerous well-stocked supermarkets and restaurants. The strong points are certainly comfort, we appreciated the presence of Wi-Fi and Smart TV. We found the hob slightly uncomfortable however we still managed to prepare lunches for the whole week. Karlien also got us a rental car at an affordable price and with insurance included. We highly recommend staying here.

111) Jeanne Besancon (FR) Zakynthos August 2020

Superb stay in this apartment. Two minutes away from those shops and on the market!!! Our hosts have full of good advice, please note. Merci pour cet accueil cordialeux. Good continuation

110) Raymonde Sazias (NL & IT) Kefalonia September 2019

Holiday in Kefalonia. What a revelation our stay in Skala on the island of Kefalonia in Greece was. Through the Authentic Greece organization we were guests in Authentic Greece Regina Blue, a very well-kept structure/villa divided into several studio apartments with balcony or terrace, practically on the rocks and with a spectacular view of the sea. Around the house there is ample space for eating out or having a barbeque. Despite being close to the center of Skala, the place was very quiet where the only music is that of the waves! The center of Scala, a delightful town where nothing is missing and offers a variety of taverns and restaurants, as well as supermarkets and a pharmacy, is 2 km from the property. The beautiful beach of Skala is very long and offers both free beaches and well-equipped beaches with sunbeds and umbrellas at affordable prices. The organization of our stay was perfect, already upon arrival the car rental company was waiting for us and in a few minutes with a smile he handed over the car to us, included in the package. The assistance in case of need is also excellent. We thank Mrs. Karlien for advising and assisting us in an excellent manner. We will definitely return to Kefalonia!

109) Giovanni D R (IT) Ikaria Island August 2019

Tutto molto bene. Bellissima isola. Grazie mille.

108) Gianmarco G. (IT & GB) Zakynthos August 2019

I spent only a few days in Zante but Karlien and her collaborators really made me feel like at home. I strongly recommend her as a host.

107) Susanne Van R. (NL) Holiday on Kefalonia July 2019

A place where peace comes over you. Beautiful views over a clear blue sea. The silence that is only disturbed by the sound of the sea. Breakfast is lit up by a radiant sunrise. Exercise alternates with relaxation on the beautiful sandy beaches. Discover Greek life with special excursions. I have experienced Authentic Greece, thank you for that. See you next year!

106) John S (NL) Holiday on Zakynthos August 2019

We had an apartment, no 11, from Arvanitakis apartments, just north of Tsilivi.

We found the apartment very basic. However, that did not prevent us from having a nice holiday.

Beautiful sea view, a nice balcony where we spent many hours.

Everything was well taken care of, including the coffee maker purchased especially at our request! Really great.

Good bed, slept well. The car was included, and also arranged well and flexibly.

105) Diana Van E (NL) Holiday on Kefalonia  August 2019

We had a wonderful holiday. Hotel in the center of Scala was perfect for us. The rental car indeed had all the extra insurance. Top arranged by Karlien from Authentic Greece.

104) Carlotta C (IT) Holiday onZakynthos August 2019

Alloggio veramente vicino alla spiaggia di tsilivi(una delle più belle di zante a mio avviso) dove si trovano tanti stabilimenti balneari e bar/ristoranti che a prezzi economici forniscono servizi of excellent quality. L'abitazione ha un giardino e sorge in luogo tranquillo anche è in centro al paese. Veramente un'ottima esperienza!

103) Lorella T (IT) Holiday Kefalonia August 2019

Siamo stati con Authentic Greece a Zante, Methoni, Napflion ed ora Cefalonia. Cefalonia e un paradiso! Non sappiamo cosa scegliere per 2020 Methoni oppure di nuovo Cefalonia. Grazie Karlien.

102) Lory M (CH) Holiday on Zakynthos August 2019

Hi Karlien! I hope you are good. We are enjoying a lot the island. The weather is perfect, the landscapes are beautiful, and we love the vibes in here. We are so sad to leave on Thursday🙁.

101) Nathalie (FR) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2019

Merci Karlien pour l’organisation de la location de voiture! Ténia merci pour ton accueil et tes précieux conseils. Nous garderons un beau souvenir de notre passage chez toi! Ton logement a été au-delà de nos attentes. Merci beaucoup!

100) Teoffy L (CZ) Holiday on Zakynthos July 2019

The apartment is 3-5 min from the beach and that's great! It's cosy, with a small veranda in front of which there are flowers and plants (a little garden). If you have any questions or whatever there's always Anna nearby who is very hospitable and will help you with everything. The place, Planos (Tsilibi), is quiet and ideal for still relaxing vacations.

99) Hugo L (BE) Holiday on Zakynthos July 2019

Perfect accommodation for a couple visiting Zakynthos. Sea view, close to the beach. Tsilivi is a wonderful little town and can easily be explored by foot. The apartment is clean, neat and even got cleaned during our stay. Karlien has a huge list of places to eat, things to do etc., and is of great help for all your questions. Would recommend to everybody!

98) Rhonda Spence (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos July 2019

Thank you so much for an excellent stay. I had a fabulous holiday. The apartment was perfect, absolutely immaculate and cleaned daily, incredible location, a stones throw from the most stunning beach,. I had a sea view from my balcony. The surrounding gardens are beautiful, such good value for money, a real gem. The location is very central, but tucked away, consequently, very quiet. I would not hesitate to recommend these apartments. Mrs Anna and Tony were incredibly helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much. Rhonda Spence

97) Mrs Emma (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos July 2019

Great location, clean and value for money. Easy check in and out, and Mrs Anne was very helpful too. We had a great 5 days stay

96) Susanne van K (NL) Holiday Ikaria July 2019

Kalimera, lovely weather! Enjoying the last days even more, it was great again!

95) Danny K (NL) Holiday Zakynthos June 2019

Booked a holiday to Zakynthos with Karlien from Authentic Greece for the second time and had a great time both times. Very well organised, the people who work with Karlien do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. In short, highly recommended.

94) Maarten T (NL) Holiday in Methoni - Peloponnese July 2019

We had a wonderful time. Yorgos is a lovely host; friendly, service and humor. A BBQ was organized and the beach at the bottom is fantastic.


93) Vanessa C (DE) Holiday on Zakynthos May 2019

These apartments can be completely renovated! If we can quickly enjoy our entire island and be able to enjoy it, our living environment will be the best it can be. Now you have enjoyed your stay at the beach, bars and restaurants along the road and a supermarket. Karlien has our best travel tips and war for our personal experience. Please Karlien, stay safe on our way to Zakynthos, stop here and enjoy your stay!!! :-)

92) Frans & Marleen Vandepitte (BE) Itaka & Kefalonia May 2019

Hello Karlien. Everything went very well: someone from the car rental company was waiting for us at the airport and took us to their office, where we were assigned an easy and good C3 Citroën. Once in Skalá we ended up at the Mikelatos restaurant and Georgina took us to our apartment where everything we needed was available. Georgina herself was very helpful and certainly willing to have a chat. If we needed anything, we could always let them know. On Saturday we had our 'cooking experience' with Vasiliki and Georgio, very pleasant people, Vasiliki speaks perfect French and fluent English. The food we prepared was very tasty and we have already been able to use the explanation we received at home. During the week we were able to visit several places on the island and especially enjoyed the pleasant climate and food. The fortress in Kástro, the capital Argostóli, the coastal town of Póros with its oldest monastery, the Monastery of Ag. Gerássimos with the wine cooperative, a cruise with Captain Vangelis to Fiskárdo and the Melissáni Cave. What is especially pleasant in Cephalonia is that everyone can speak English, a great help in a country with a language that is incomprehensible to me. The only disadvantage for us is the trip to Kefallonia: we can only leave Düsseldorf by plane and that is still a long drive for us. But of course you can't do anything about that. Maybe there are more options in high season? We are very satisfied with the organization of Authentic Greece, thank you.

91) Mary A. (CH) Holiday Itaka & Kefalonia September 2018

Itaka is small, we'll visit you soon. Kephalonia is still a great place to eat and enjoy the island. Long walks among scents, colors and sounds all seasoned with a very pleasant dry heat of 30°. Beaches for all tastes. We saw the baby turtles being born and intrepidly heading towards the great sea. An emotion!. Accommodation: beautiful location, seafront, comfortable house with a large garden and possibility of staring outdoors either in the garden or on the terrace. Good service although not regular, clean. Chaiselongues (deckchairs) would be welcome for relaxing in the garden or on the large terraces. Karlien is gentle, willing and able to provide information for you.

90) Daniela M. (CH) Holiday on Kefalonia September 2018

Holiday in Kefalonia and Ithaca, a beautiful discovery!

I was in Kefalonia with friends in September, and we stayed in Skala. The island is truly beautiful with many different beaches but also very mountainous and green. It is advisable to have a car for travel. We alternated beautiful walks and excursions with relaxing on the beach. In September the island is certainly less crowded, the sea is beautiful and the temperature is excellent. Skala is an excellent base for a stay: it offers all services and a variety of long pebble or sandy beaches. Don't miss the excursion to the mythical Ithaca of Ulysses!

89) Vayamundo Travel (BE) Group trip Peloponnese + Athens, October 2018

The guests were very pleased. The guide is a really nice lady, lots of information, facts, just good. Hotels Super. Hotel in Tolo, in good condition with a view of the sea. Excursions super fun. So worth repeating.

88) Family Burger (NL) Tour 2018

Authentic Greece has planned a beautiful tour for us. We started in Athens (beautiful hotel with a view of the Acropolis). Beautiful city, lots to see and you can wander around the small streets of Plaka for hours. Peloponnese is truly a fantastic part of Greece. Many authentic small villages, small taverns, beautiful bays, good food ......And what friendly people. The last few days we have been in a beautiful app. on Zakynthos. Long sandy beaches, boat trip, turtles and relaxation. We enjoyed this trip, everything was well organized, hotels (one even nicer than the other), car rental and of course a route description with tips for the sights during the tour.

87) Katia C. (IT) Zakynthos August 2018

Every year we go on holiday with Authentic Greece. Every great today. I recommend this agency to everyone. Holidays in the real Greece.

86) Daniele Traversari (IT) Holiday Zakynthos 2018

My name is Daniele and I was in Zakynthos with the tour operator Authentic Greece in the last week of August. The island is beautiful, very beautiful sea and beautiful beaches and suitable for everyone. The residence where I was hosted is a fabulous place near the sea but at the same time silent, the service was excellent as was the owner, a helpful person who was sensitive to people's needs, very careful that everything was perfect and perfectly clean. The organization of the trip by Authentic Greece was impeccable and smooth, the difference is made by those who know the island well and know how to advise you from beaches to places to restaurants. This blue sea certainly struck me, I must return.

85) Hans & Susanne T. (NL) Holiday on Ikaria 2018

Nothing too much said Karlien! It is truly fantastic here. We enjoy every bit of it. Have also been to Rania and of course booked a "wine etc. trip". Just wait and see when we go. And speaking of "authentic" .... the simple restaurant ... downstairs next to the supermarket ... great! Soooo delicious food. Never go home.

84) Jeffrey D. (NL)  Holiday on Zakynthos June 2018

Holiday was great. Had a nice tour, had a good meal, enjoyed the sea, didn't spend a cent and had a wonderful rest. Thank you.

83) Emma (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2018

Excellent hospitality. Perfect location, approx 2 minutes walk to the beach and beach bar with great atmosphere. Basic apartment but is clean and has everything you would need. We very much enjoyed our stay.

82) Erietta (DE) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2018

Great combination of price and quality. Very close to the nice small beach, few restaurants with great food and views. appartment is very clean and nice, great terrace and area with grass and flowers to run around with children. Tenia owner is very intelligent and pleasant woman. Karlien was answering quickly on all my questions.

81) Chery (US) Holiday on Zakynthos November 2017

The apartment is as described. We found it to be very clean and very nice. My family of four found the apartment very comfortable. We really enjoyed the patio area! The beach is very close to the apartment as are a few restaurants. We arrived in late October so most places were closed for the season. If you want to go to town or major points of interest you must rent a car which is very easy and affordable. Ms Tania greeted us with fresh pears and wine. She was a gracious host and offered us a lot of great advice for our vacation. Highly recommend this place. 

80) Vaida (Israel) Holiday on Zakynthos October 2017

Very nice and cosy apartment next to the sea! Has few restaurants jut a minute walk away, which one of the we really enjoyed for amazing food! When we arrived we were greeted by superbly warm and helpful lady which showed us around, explained everything, gave few tips. Would strongly recommended this apartment for family holiday.

79) Zannelato (IT) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2017

Karlien was very kind from the first moment and followed our accommodation from the very first moments. The accommodation is very basic, equipped with a terrace with sea view, it is not far from the beach, the beds are single but joined into a double bed and therefore slightly uncomfortable. The very simple bathroom without bidet and with curtain shower. However, it must be admitted that there is no lack of cleanliness: every day a girl took care of putting everything in order and cleaning the room and the bathroom. Punctual change of sheets and towels mid-week. The owner, kind and reserved, speaks understandable English and was careful to resolve a small problem relating to the lighting system which was resolved very quickly. Privacy is not lacking and the location of the apartment, although not very central in Tsilivi, is therefore very quiet but still close to every service: bar, supermarket, tavern. The car rental service offered to us was of good quality in terms of price and rental conditions. In conclusion, a good solution for those who don't want to spend too much and still have decent accommodation.

78) Dennis (DE) Holiday on Zakynthos May 2018

We had an incredibly great week with super friendly hosts, super nice accommodation and location. Any time again and absolutely recommended

77)  Nicola (AUS) Holday on Zakynthos June 2018

Tenia greeted us warmly and made us feel at home with local wine and fruit! The apartment is wonderfully close to Amboula Beach so the perfect place to relax and enjoy Zakynthos’ amazing azure waters. Thank you!

77) Olivio O. (IT) Holiday on Kefalonia May 2018

Beautiful apartment, beautiful island. Everything was fantastic.

76) Group trip from Belgium, Zakynthos May 2018

They were so happy. They want to go again next year. JPS Belgium.

75) Cyprus Classic Tour (21 days) of Switzerland May 2018

Everything organized to perfection. It was wonderful. Thanks Karlien. ATTE

74) Group trip Kalamata Christmas & Sylvester 2017 / 2018

It was great again. Thank you.

73) Dieuwke vd M. (NL) Holiday Zakynthos August 2017

We really enjoyed our holiday 100%. Well organised, we really had the feeling that everything was arranged perfectly for us. The apartment was also fine: clean, a nice balcony, perfect location on the beach. The friendly Mrs. Anna made sure that we felt completely at home. Thanks Karlien!

72) Lidia V. (IT) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2017

Thanks Karlien, we had a great time. Thanks for everything, we had a great time.

71) Livio Z. (IT) Holiday on Zakthos August 2017

Karlien was very kind in welcoming us and following our stay effectively. Absolutely professional.

70) Daniele T. (IT) Holiday on Kefalonia August 2017

Hi  Karlien, I just returned from Kefalonia and I wanted to thank you and all your collaborators, Monica always available and active. Excellent organization and perfect stay. As always, your organization is a certainty.

69) Daniela F. (DE) Holiday on Zakynthos August 2017

We were very happy about our holidays. Karlien was very nice and helpful. She answered all our questions in a very short time and gave us a lot of important informations. The apartment was very comfortable and clean with a beautiful balcony with view into the garden. The kitchen was quite small and the use of the cooking plate was a bit tricky because the switcher was broken. Most things for cooking were available. We took from home a cutting board, some sharp knives, a peeler and a dishcloth with us and that was helpful. The shower was great: very warm and a lot of water. The apartment was cleaned every day and nearly every second day we got new towels and bed linen. The great sandy beach with the warm clear water was only about 100m away. We rented a car from Margaris as Karlien recommended us and that was the best decision: Andreas was very helpful and nice. If you want to see something of the island a car is a MUST and there are a lot of gorgeous places! We are already planning a return to Zante and we intend to book this lovely apartment once again :-). Finally I was quite surprised that I found vegan and glutenfree products on Zante which I need for eating.

68) Massimiliano F. (IT) Holiday on Zakynthos July 2017 

Complimenti a Karlien A. Precisa e molto disponibile. Appartamento ottimo e ben pulito .

67) Lynsey J. (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2017

I arrived early in the morning and Karlien was kind enough to let me check in early. The room is everything you expect from a Greek apartment. Functional and clean. The balcony was private with high sides so you didn't see your neighbours and also had a seaview. Location was perfect for me. A minute walk to the beach and not far from the main road with restaurants and shops but far enough away to be quiet. Would stay here again if I ever visit Zakynthos. Thanks Karlien

66) Catharina W. (DE) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2017

We are really enjoying our holidays, loving the apartment, the backyard with the flowers is beautiful, Anna is super nice! Moreover the nice girl who is cleaning the apartment everyday is doing a brilliant job!

65) Izabella A. (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2017

I can highly recommend Karlien’s place as we loved our stay. The apartment is nice, cosy and has basic furniture and kitchen equipment. Everything you need on your holiday. The town / village is beautiful and we will be going back!  Thank you Karlien.

64) Lotus T. (DE) Holiday on Zakyntos Amboula La Grotta June 2017

We traveled as a family with our 4-years-old son and had one of the best vacations ever. We fell in love with Zakynthos and the apartment was perfect for us. Thanks to Karlien and the landlor Tenia.


63) Danny K. (NL) Holiday on Zakynthos June 2017

Aangekomen bij het appartement, supermooi!! Topservice, ook van de car rental. En er stond een fles wijn voor ons klaar, Karlien houdt van mij. Arrivati, bellissimo appartamento, servizio perfetto!


62) ATTE Group Travel (CH), 45 pax, May & June 2017, 2 weeks Central Greece

Everything was perfect. Beautiful 5 star hotels. Fantastic organization. Thank you Karlien


61) Groep JPS (BE), Mr Marnix vdK, Messinia / Kalamata Kerst en Oud & Nieuw

Dag Karlien, we hebben toch zeker 100 km in de sneeuw moeten rijden aan 50km/uur. Vrachtwagens werden tegengehouden om niet door te rijden, wij aanvankelijk ook, maar ik zei tourist, English, ... en we mochten voorzichtig doorrijden en moest maar onze 4 richtingaanwijzers aanzetten als we de berg niet op raakten. Was toch een spannende rit, maar toch ruimschoots op tijd gearriveerd. Messini was in ieder geval indrukwekkend groot en mooi! Toch ook nog tot Olympia gereden. De video: Gelukkig nieuwjaar, Marnix 

60) Emma J (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2016

Karlien was a brilliant host. If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful stay in Zante then I would recommend Karlien's apartments. Karlien's restaurant suggestions really made the trip, and saved us time and bickering! Thank you, Karlien.


59) Alicia L. (AUS) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2016

Karlien is a worldly and wonderful person with lots of zest for life but very down to earth with her experiences. She picked me up from the airport and gave me all the information I needed. If there is anything you could need she is just a knock away :) the location is nice because you are tucked away from the tourist madness yet still close enough to get what you need and its central to the south and north special spots. The accomm is simple but a great base!!!


58) Jacqui F. (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2016

You made us very welcome..thank you!


57) Milena P. (IT) Vacanza Costa Navarino 2016

Quest'estate siamo stati benissimo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


56) Nataly V. (IT) Vacanza a Zante Settembre 2016

ciao Karlien, si purtroppo siamo rientrati a pieno ritmo e con molta fatica direi...ancora raccontiamo quei posti bellissimi. 

Siamo stati bene, si! Il giusto x stare una settimana zona è' stata perfetta come parlammo. Grazie a te di tutto! E se vuoi fare un salto nel Salento contattaci...sarà un piacere! Buon lavoro! Saluti


55) Adriano T (IT) Tour per la Grecia Classica Giugno 2016

E stato un Tour per la Grecia fantastico. Abbiamo visto 18 siti archeologici e musei. Le guide erana bravissimi. Il tempo era fantastico. Gli hotel molto buoni. Abbiamo mangiato molto bene. Vogliamo ringrazare Karlien per l'organizazzione. 


54) Carla M. (GB) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2016

Karlien was so lovely coming to collect us from the airport and providing us with great advice for the best local restaurants. The cliff top near the apartment provided the most beautiful sunset watching every night and it was really lovely to be near to but not in the resort of Tsilivi. We would definitely recommend and stay again - Zakynthos is stunning and so easy to explore the whole island from the location with a scooter or car and so near some gorgeous beaches north.


53) Costina T. (BE) Holiday on Zakynthos September 2016

We had a wonderful week in Greece: the island is breath-taking beautiful and the islanders surprisingly welcoming and friendly, Karlien being an absolute example. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos, very comfortable and clean, and on top of that, with a magnificent balcony-view (no other buildings to obstruct the view, there is only a tiny road in front of it, and then the edge of a quite high cliff). The closest beach is at few steps away. I would definitely recommend it as a perfect escape for a zen holiday.


52) Lucia M. (IT) Vacanza Zante Settembre 2016

Il ns. vacanza settembrina a Zante ci ha veramente soddisfatto! Il tempo è stato inclemente con noi solo 2 gg su 10. L'appartamento di  è corrispondente alle foto, spartano ma accogliente e funzionale. Il punto migliore è il balcone con vista mare! Da li abbiamo potuto godere dei bellissimi tramonti di Zante e fare colazione la mattina ammirando il mare. Karlien è molto cordiale e disponibile ci ha consigliato ed aiutato col noleggio auto che ci ha permesso di visitare l'isola in ogni angolo e di godere a pieno di tutte le sue bellissime spiagge. Bella idea la pulizia ed il cambio biancheria ogni tre giorni. Molto gradito l'elenco delle varie taverne greche che ci ha fornito. Esperienza da consigliare;-)”


51) Marian T. (RO) Holiday Zakynthos September 2016

We thank you for hosting and assure you our recommendations and return to Zakinthos.  Thank you.


50)  Virgilijus P. (LT) Holiday Zakynthos September 2016

Dear Karlien, We are back home and we have continuation of Zante vacation here - real summer here - +25-+27 – it is a little bit unusual for Lithuania. Anyway it was paradise in your home and we enjoyed it very much regardless of stormy weather some time. The room was simple and we loved it – as you predicted correctly. We would like to thank you for your hospitality and good mood and the evening we spent together in our balcony discussing difference between soviet time life and todays life under Western standards. We will follow info presented in your new website. As agreed call me if you travel to Lithuania. We wish you all the best in your life.


49) Manuela H. (AT) Holiday Zakynthos August / September 2016

Karlien war sehr flexibel, was die Anreise- und Abreisezeit betraf und kam mir sehr entgegen. Eine Flasche Wasser stand im Zimmer bereit. Sie hatte zahlreiche Informationen für Unternehmungen und Restaurants in der Umgebung. Karlien war immer erreichbar.


48)  Melina Z. (CH) Holiday on Zakynthos August 2016

The Apartment is simple but has everything you need with a comfy atmosphere. Karlien is always there when you need any advice or help and organizes everything perfectly. Thank you for your hospitality, Karlien.


47) Rosario R. (IT) Vacanza Zante Settembre 2016

Buona sera cara Karlin , ti ringraziamo X ospitalità.


46)  Andrew M. (GB) & (ES) Holiday Zakynthos, August 2016

....yes yes I was very, very happy with the holiday this year and I would have no problem recommending "Authentic Greece" to others.


45)  Kerstin S. (DE), Holiday Zakynthos, August / September 2016

The apartment looks like on the pictures and u will find anything u need!:) Karlien was very friendly and helpful and she gave u help in everything we needed! The area of the apartment is quiet and perfectly located in the near of a very nice beach!!! I would recommend u a scooter so u can discover the island pretty easy!:) I would come back!:)


44) Klara L. (DK), Holiday Zakynthos, August 2016

We had so much fun. Zakynthos was absolutely over our expectations. Authentic Greece was great. We had a nice and clean room. The resident were placed at a beautiful spot with fantastic view and close to, what we thought was, the best beach. 


43) Nina H. (NL), Vakantie Peloponnesos, Juli 2016

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad op een mooie gastvrije plek. Alles was prima geregeld, goede kamers, lekker ontbijt. Kortom hele goede tijd gehad.


42)  Pauline E. (NL), Vakantie Peloponnesos, Augustus 2016

We denken met heel veel plezier terug aan onze dagen in Methoni. Wat een prachtige plek, inderdaad super uitzicht. Het was een fijn en schoon huis met royaal terras. Ook het zwembad en het ontbijt waren top! Het was voor ons een heerlijke week en we komen graag nog eens terug.


41)  Katharina N. (DE), Ferien Zakynthos, August 2016

After a small misunderstanding in the beginning, which was perfectly handeled and solved by Karlien, our stay was absolutely fantastic. Karlien is a perfect host, always available for questions and good advices and lovely to sit down with and have a chat. We absolutely enjoyed staying in the apartment, it is clean, has enough space for 2 and a great balcony to spent evenings with a wonderful sea view. The neighbourhood is very calm and non- touristical, which is wonderful. The beach nearby (Gaidaros) is mostly used by locals which we absolutely appreciated. Far a way from tourist madness we spent one absolute fabulous week in Tragaki. Thank you Karlien! Kathrin & Oliver


40) Ettore G, Milano (IT) - Vacanza a Zante, Agosto 2016

Posto fantastico appartamento bello, accogliente, pulito e con una vista unica. Karlien é veramente fantastica, ci ha fatto sentire come a casa. Bellissima esperienza.


39) Sara S, Milano (IT) - Vacanza a Zante,  Agosto 2016

Siamo stati benissimo. Grazie ancora di tutto! 


38) Loukas K. (AUS), Zakynthos, August 2016

Great location to beautiful beaches, away from the heavy touristy areas. Accommodation was simple, safe and clean. Enjoyed my stay thoroughly.


37) Soven A. London (GB), Zakynthos , August 2016

Karlien was simply wonderful throughout our visit. She kindly met us at the airport. And then asked us to follow her to the accommodation. She also helped with sorting out the car hire from Andreas via email a few days before out trip. Karlien then helped us schedule our time by booking trips for us, and even changing them quickly. On the last night, she came to chat to check on us before leaving the next day. Do not hesitate to stay at this place, you will be very well looked after.


36) Polina L. (DE) & (RU), Zakynthos,  August 2016

A great place hosted by a great woman. Karlien was always there to help, organize, fix, take care of everything (or sometimes just for a friendly chat); the apartments have everything you need, the view is stunning, the island overall is very beautiful and Karlien did everything she could to help us explore it the best way possible. She also organized a car for us (mr. Andreas, who provided the car, is also genuinely professional, sweet, friendly and just overall a cool guy). We can only thank her and promise we'll come back again :) Renting a car/atv is a must if you want to explore! Beautiful caves, gorgeous views, old villages, cozy beaches with little to no people and other great stuff the island has to offer can (in most cases) be reached only that way.


35) Andrea C. (IT), Zakynthos, Theo Beach, August 2016

Karlien é stata molto accogliente e disponibile, fornendoci informazioni interessanti per visitare i punti di interesse più significativi e alcuni ottimi locali. È stata anche molto utile per noleggiare la macchina e prenotare le escursioni in barca, avendo delle conoscenze in loco. L' appartamento é essenziale ma funzionale con una bella vista sul mare e un discreto segnale WiFi. Nel complesso il nostro soggiorno é stato soddisfacente, unico neo sono stati alcuni dei vicini, molto rumorosi e maleducati nelle ore notturne. Fortunamente Karlien ha provveduto inizialmente a farglielo notare, e alla fine é stata costretta a mandarli via per la loro insistenza.


34) Ben B. (GB) & (HU), Zakynthos, Theo Beach, August 2016

We spent 9 days at this place and it proved to be very nice. It was situated ideally, it wasn't in the resort itself where at times it was fairly busy (which is nice if you're out doing touristic shopping, eating or looking for cruise trips) but roughly a km or 2 from it, therefore it's still very accessible but you don't have it in front of your house door. The beach situated nearby was lovely too, most times you could even get a beautiful umbrella for free with it too. The harbour at the beach is small and you see many small fishingboats with fishingmen at work. You have a wonderful sea view from the well sized balcony as well which is nice too. 


33) Jojannke van D (NL), Zakynthos, augustus 2016

We hebben enorm genoten van Zakynthos. De ligging van het appartement is zeer goed. We hebben genoten van het rustige strandje dichtbij, en met auto/scooter kun je het eiland fijn ontdekken. Het appartement zelf is qua prijs/kwaliteit prima, en Karlien was hulpvaardig.


32) Morten Green (DK), Hotel & Apartments La Sapienza Methoni, juli 2016

Here are some words about our stay at La Sapienza: We enjoyed it from the beginning. Yorgos was there when we arrived, and he is a very friendly and nice man. Our room was very nice and clean, with a wonderful view. The breakfast was delicious, fresh orange juice, yoghurt, choice of 3 different kinds of egg, fresh fruit, marmalade, bread and honey, all served at your table, a good start for the day.Just a short walk to a good beach, and about 20min on foot along the beach to the town with a good variety of restaurants. The whole atmosphere at La Sapienza was friendly and relaxing, it is a place that we can only recommend and I don’t think it is the last time we are there. So we had a very nice holiday, without stress and too much tourists 


31) Luca Riccardi (IT), July 2016 Zakynthos

30) Dana Gabdullina (KZ), July 2016 Theo Beach Zakynthos

The room in Theo Beach is new, has all the basics, and is a great value for money. You can see the sea from the balcony, which is a great way to start a day! Karlien was very attentive and supportive.


29) Elwin en Ivanna (NL), July 2016, Zakynthos

Bedankt voor de goede zorgen. Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad en super genoten. 


28) Telmo de Almeida (PT), July 2016, Zakynthos

We had an amazing time in Zakynthos thanks to Karlien who was an wonderful host. She took care of us and our needs since the minute we landed on the beautiful island of Zakynthos. She always looked genuinely concerned about making us feel comfortable and helped us with useful tips and bookings to excursions so that we could have a great experience on our holliday. The apartments are at a walking distance from Gaidaros Beach (5m), they are clean and have the most fantastic view to the ocean, so eating breakfast and dinning in the balcony was a A+++ experience. 


27) Christine Viollet (FR), July 2016,  Zakynthos

T'es bon accueil de Karlien très disponible, nous avons eu un problème de climatisation, elle nous a proposée de suite un autre logement. Jolie vue sur la mer. Karlien est très chaleureuse et sympathique.


26) Liesje Geens (BE), July 2016, Holiday on Zakynthos

Heel erg bedankt voor het gezelschap en de goede opvang, het was voor ons ook een leuke kennismaking en we zullen zeker langs jullie agentschap gaan als we nog een huisje willen huren in Italië of Griekenland. Ik heb je gegevens ook doorgegeven aan een goede vriend van mij die zot is van Italië


25) Rickard Lindh (SE), July 2016 

Went to Zante somewhat spontaneously and chose Theo Beach apartments as the price fitted nicely with our budget and it had nice reviews. The house with the apartments is situated in a chilled out neighborhood with a great view of Kefalonia across the sea from the balcony. A calm beach is some minutes walking distance away which was nice for a night swim. The apartment was clean and functional and the sea breeze chilled it nicely during the night, no need to waste electricy on a noisy AC! We got a great reception by Karlien, who helped us book a rental car (which as many others suggest is good to have on Zante as it is a big Island and you will probably want to explore it and find your own favorite beaches to get the most out of your trip), and book some boat trips. Overall both Karlien and the guys at the car rental was super friendly and helpful! We really felt welcome!


24) John H. (GB), June 2016, Hotel & Apartments La Sapienza in Methoni Peleponnese

Warm welcome, glorious location, excellent breakfast. A very friendly welcome from Yorgos. The room was comfortable and clean with a stunning sea view of the Venetian fort at Methoni. Had a really relaxing time by the pool. A short walk into Methoni. The nearby beaches are safe for families with young children. The area is beautiful with interesting villages to see nearby. We will remember the fantastic view from our balcony, Yorgos' sense of humour and what a relaxing time we had.


23) Sivana Mazzoni (IT), June 2016, vacanza a Zante

Buongiorno, è andato tutto bene e siamo stati molto soddisfatti della vacanza.

Stiamo già pensando al prossimo anno perché ci piacerebbe fare Cefalonia e magari qualche giorno a Zante.


22) Marika De Mizio (IT) , Zante, giugno 2016

Abbiamo soggiornato presso Theo Beach dal 30 giugno al 7 di luglio e abbiamo trascorso davvero una piacevole settimana. Tutto ciò che è descritto nell'annuncio è ampiamente rispettato. Il monolocale è arredato in modo essenziale, fresco e pulito, con un terrazzino vista mare davvero strepitoso! Karlien è stata davvero una Host fantastica, gentile, cordiale e disponibile, ci ha aiutati a noleggiare una macchina e ci ha proposto delle gite in barca davvero interessanti, ben organizzate e a prezzi modici!!! La zona è molto tranquilla e la spiaggia più vicina dista solo 150 mt. e quindi facilmente raggiungibile anche a piedi. Consiglio davvero di prendere una macchina a noleggio o un motorino per girare al meglio l'isola che è davvero meravigliosa e merita una visita approfondita (7 gg sono un po' pochini e passano davvero in fretta!). Torneremo sicuramente su questa meravigliosa isola e soggiorneremo nuovamente da Karlien!!! NB. Abbiamo amato la vista che si godeva dal terrazzo dell'appartamento, la cordialità e la disponibilità dell'host e la zona tranquilla.


21) Pau C.P (ES), June 2016, Holiday on Zakynthos

Everything was perfect, the island, the apartment... I'm really thankful to you for giving me the oportunity of being there. Simply unforgettable... 


20) Roberta Marconi (IT), June 2016, Vacanza a Zante

Tutto davvero fantastico, in modo particolare l'accoglienza di Karlien, sempre presente ed attenta ad ogni minimo particolare. La casa (Theo Beach) semplice ma pulitissima ,davanti al mare con un tramonto mozzafiato.


19) David Vadas (HU), June 2016, Holiday on Zakynthos

We had an awsome holiday at Authentic Greece. Before our trip Karlien was always in contact with us in case we needed anything (e.g car, transfer, etc). Our arrival went very smooth, the welcome of Karlien was lovely. We got suggestions of where to eat, where to shop nearby. The room was basic but it had everything we needed. It is at a quiet area but very close to a busy town where many tavernas, shops and bars are. We really liked it in this way because we loved to sit outside in our balcony and watch the sunset with a glass of wine or a chilled ouzo ;) but afterwards it was good to have a night out at the bars. Airco was not necessary at all because we could open the balcony door and the front door so we could enjoy the natural seabreeze which was actually wonderful. Karlien gave us privacy but in case we needed anything she was always reachable and very friendly. Thank you for the great vacation, we will definitely come back.


18). Federica Violi (IT), June 2016

Abbiamo soggiornato in Theo Beach, fantastico con vista mare, a giugno. Posizione strategica per raggiungere le spiagge e le calette più belle, meno affollate e incontaminate. Appartamento funzionale e con una fantastica terrazza sul mare. Da provare, per un meraviglioso soggiorno a Zante!


17) Helen Van Scoy (US), June 2016 (two times) 

A.Karlien could not have been more welcoming and helpful! We really enjoyed our stay in Theo Beach and loved Zakynthos. We want to go back. 

B. Karlien is a friendly, helpful host who made our stay wonderful. We didn't want to leave and will be coming back in the future!


16) Oliver (AT), June 2016

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit auf Zakynthos und das Apartment (Theo Beach) ist um diesen Preis einfach nur zu empfehlen. Das Apartment ist einfach eingerichtet,bietet aber alles was man braucht als Selbstversorger. Die Lage ist auch sehr schön und ruhig, 5 min zu Fuß zu einem sehr schönen Sandstrand mit Strandbar. Wir haben auch über Karlien ein Mietauto gebucht, hat auch alles wunderbar geklappt. Sind vom Flughafen abgeholt worden und der Autovermieter hat uns zu unserem Apartment gebracht. Wenn man die Insel wirklich erkunden will, ist ein Auto auch sehr zu empfehlen. Wir würden sofort wieder dieses Apartment buchen und können Karlien und ihr Engagemant nur weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank für alles und wir kommen bestimmt wieder.


15) Piers Blewett (GB), June 2016

We had a lovely stay at the apartments Theo Beach. They were lovely and clean with a fantastic shower. The location is great, close to the beach and tsilivi town, should you need it, via the beach. Some wonderful places to eat nearby like the Donkey Beach Bar and Ellinon Pelagos Tavern (which is amazing food). Karlien was very helpful before and throughout.


14) Lidy Weijers (NL), May 2016

Hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad, alles liep eigenlijk heel goed en soepel. Fantastisch weer gehad, Zakynthos grotendeels kunnen bekijken, leuke en mooe dingen gezien, ook Pelopennesos was super. Dus kortom, kon eigenlijk niet beter.  Terugreis liep voorspoedig. Was inderdaad leuk om je op de valreep nog te ontmoeten. Leuk,dat je Yorgos nog even de groeten hebt gedaan. Bedankt voor al je bemiddelingen en wellicht tot ziens. 


13) Rosanne Davidse (NL), May 2016

Nice apartment (Theo Beach), good price for what you get. A little out of the centre but with a car very OK.


12) Carly Jessup (US), September 2015

Karlien is a great host! The place (Theo Beach) was clean and simple, very basic but close to a beach and a few good restaurants. Balcony overlooking the water with chairs and a table. In my opinion it's good to rent a car on Zakynthos anyways, so its okay--and actually nice--that its not right in town. The town of Planos is a 20ish minute walk by streets or less if you go by way of the beach and get your feet wet. :)


11) Sharon Ochs (US), September 2015

We were totally happy with this rental Theo Beach - the space is clean and has everything you could need. Karlien was an amazing host - she was super responsive and had great advice on what to see on the island and tour information. And the price was unbeatable! I would definitely recommend staying here, as long as you have rented a car.


10) Jesse Sanford (US), September 2015

This rental (Theo Beach) is a hidden gem! It has everything you need, and you can't beat the price. The location is nice because it's away from the busyness, but still close enough to be convenient. Karlien was a perfect host, she went above and beyond to help us. Highly recommend!


9) Alexandrea Haut (US), September 2015

Karlien was an amazing host. She was very responsive, picked me up from the port and even came early (as my ferry was early), she gave me a ride to the excursion she planned for everyone to attend if they wished, and she drove me to the airport! I'm so grateful for all that she did for me! The place is also amazing. It's pretty big especially for one person. There's also a table and vanity in the room which was nice. The kitchenette was perfect; it had anything you really needed. Typical bathroom. The balcony had a very nice view of the sea! And the beach was only 5 min away. I didn't rent a car but was still able to walk to the supermarket, restraunts, bars and stores. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again!


8) Ulysse Depret (BE), July 2016 Methoni, Peloponnese

De vakantie was fantastisch,  de kamers waren prima, supermooi uitzicht! We hebben superveel gedaan en superveel gezien.  Ook altijd lekker gegeten!  Met Yorgos kwamen we direct goed overeen, samen ouzotjes gedronken en gebbq'ed, superfijn! De vakantiedagen voor dit jaar zijn helaas op, maar volgend jaar maken we zeker opnieuw een zomerreis...


7) Monica di Verona (IT), June 2015

Sono stata in Theo Beach ad inizio di giugno....è in perfetto stile greco, semplice, pulita e funzionale. Ci sono delle belle terrazze utilizzabili per far colazione, pranzare o cenare oppure per rilassarsi godendo di un curatissimo giardino e della vista sul mare. Una particolarità è data dal fatto che anche dal retro, per accedere agli appartamenti, si vede il mare...molto romantico...


6) Elisa Z. di Verona, July 2015

Theo Beach, semplice ma con tutto ciò che occorre.... quest'anno è stato anche ristrutturato!!! In una posizione ideale per una vacanza in totale relax e comunque vicino ad un paese, Tsilivi, che offre taverne e locali in cui passare le serate... Ci tornerò!!!! E poi Zante è una meraviglia!!!!


5) Fausto Baf, Castelnuovo del Garda (IT), July 2015

Sono qui al Theo Beach New e tutto è davvero in ordine e fantastico da quando c'è stata la ristrutturazione, davvero un bel salto di qualità!!! Aria condizionata, doccia con le tende, rubinetti nuovi, giardino curato, docce esterne e parcheggio riservato..... Che dire della meravigliosa vista mare da tutte le camere? La spiaggia sotto casa è di sabbia fine con un mare fantastico e a piedi lungo la spiaggia si raggiunge il paese di Tsilivi! Ci sono davvero tutti gli ingredienti per una vacanza fantastica........ 


4) Eddo P (NL), June 2015

Wij zijn een aantal jaren geleden bij Theo Beach van Authentic Greece geweest maar het appartement is helemaal opgeknapt en gerenoveerd. Een hele vooruitgang! Wij waren zeer tevreden.


3) Elena T (IT), June 2015

Io e il mio compagno siamo appena tornati da una settimana di vacanza al Theo Beach New. Ci avevano fornito le indicazioni per arrivare e siamo arrivati molto facilmente. Gli appartamenti sono molto belli , a soli 150 metri dal mare (molto bella anche la spiaggia) e sono veramente puliti. Abbiamo apprezzato molto anche il verde attorno dove ci siamo rilassati sulle amache messe a disposizione per gli ospiti. Sono in una posizione ideale per visitare l'isola e il paese di Tsilivi è solo a un km di distanza. Si può raggiungere anche dalla spiaggia. Sicuramente torneremo anche l'anno prossimo


2) Pietro (IT), June 2015

Isola splendida in questo periodo dell'anno, esperienza bellissima condivisa con la mia fidanzata. Abbiamo conosciuto molti greci simpatici, cordiali e accoglienti. Il residence Theo Beach è piccolino ma in una posizione invidiabile, panorama magnifico e spiaggia sotto casa, in due passi si è a Tsilivi, paese molto animato, pieno di bar, ristoranti e taverne, tipici del posto. Gli appartamenti erano puliti e con tutto il necessario, davvero da consigliare, parcheggio privato, il wi-fi e un barbeque che abbiamo usato spesso comprando la carne che qui costa davvero poco ed è naturale. Insomma un posto davvero da consigliare!!!


1) Peter Maas (NL), individuele rondreis Griekenland, Christmas 2014

Hoi Karlien, Wij zijn net weer thuis na 10 heerlijke dagen Griekenland. Het was een enerverende trip, heel veel gezien, was echt te gek! Wel redelijk moe, vanmorgen om 3.30 uur opgestaan. We hadden veel mooi weer, zelfs even 22C en heb toen ook een duik in zee genomen. Voor ons en de kinderen was Olympia toch wel het hoogtepunt, heel erg mooi al die historie. De hotels waren heel prima, en in Kalamata en Olympia gewoon echt heel goed. Lekker en goed eten ook in deze hotels. Yonda en ik vonden Nafplio ook heel erg leuk, hier en in de omgeving ervan hadden we misschien wel een dag meer tijd willen hebben. Athene moesten we natuurlijk ook gezien hebben, en dan vooral voor de Akropolis, maar verder toch niet zo ons ding, veel te druk (zie ook de negatieve ervaring even verderop). Leuk was in hotel Londen op einde van de trip dat ze vanmorgen om 4 uur al gewoon ontbijt hadden klaargezet (zoiets had ik nog nooit meegemAakt). Bijna alles ging helemaal goed, behalve dat Yonda in Athene een hondebeet opliep en van schrik haar enkel zwaar blesseerde (in ziekenhuis bleek dat het gelukkig niet gebroken was ...) en in Kalamata haar portemonnee is kwijtgeraakt. Maar dit alles heeft de pret gelukkig niet bedorven. Dit was voor ons een reisje om nooit te vergeten. Bedankt voor de organisatie!
