Michael & Maria have a wealth of experience in tourism and hospitality having rented holiday accommodation both in Scotland and in Greece for many years.
In 2003 Michael and Maria found a dilapidated and neglected house in Koroni that had once been the splendid Venetian villa belonging to the village icon painter, there the seeds of an idea were sown.
Now living permanently in Greece Michael and Maria have a wealth of knowledge about the country, its history and the local area which they are happy to share with you and help you to make the most of your vacation.
At first they thought only of a place for themselves to come for vacations, but the house was so unique and Koroni such a beautiful village that they decided that they could share its delights with others by sensitively converting the house into four comfortable modern apartments for rent. And that is how “The Iconpainter” concept began.
"Our guests told us how much they enjoyed staying at the Iconpainter's Apartments and this inspired us to make a life changing decision. We left our jobs in the UK and moved to live permanently in Greece and provide our guests with the best vacation possible. We bought an olive grove near the fabulous Peroulia and Gargarou beaches and built four pretty and traditional villas and our own house within the grove. We grow most of our own produce and make our own olive oil, eating olives, wine and preserves, which are all available for our guests to sample and buy."
