About us


Pretty Greek Villas

Pretty Greek Villas is a family business. We visit all the villas we represent and of the many owners that contact us we only chose the ones we identify with, which are 'Pretty Greek Villas'

PGV was incorporated in 2003. All the people who work for and with PGV live in Greece. Over the years we have discovered reliable people to work with. Not just our owners, who appreciate the advice and feedback we give them but also our suppliers, (car hire, boat hire, cooks, cleaners, pool repair people, the list is long) who treat our guests in such a good way because we have treated them in a respectful way.

We don't place a large markeup on the net price that our suppliers give us, instead we ask for them to take special care of our guests, of you! Time and time again we hear about Vassilis or Kostas the taxi drivers, how lovely and careful they were, or Suabe and Adjad who look after our guests so brilliantly making sure that every detail is managed in a considerate way. Beds are changed, sheets smell fresh, houses are imaculate, pools are clean and gardens are taken care of.

PGV is not just the people who work in our office but a large extended family of friends and colleagues who try their best to give an excellent service. Why? I guess it's because we all care and want our guests to remember just how special Greece really is.


Katerina Korfiati

Katerina always had a passion for photography and architecture so long as she can remember.

Two years ago, Katerina started to 'shoot' for PGV. Her modern style of photography is honest and at the same time there is a clarity to her photography which shows the reality of each internal space.

Often Katerina accompanies us around Greece, she shoots and we seek out the next gorgeous gem to add to the Pretty Greek Villas collection. 

As Katerina expands her business we hope she'll continue to find time to photograph for PGV.

Marie-Louise Bland

Marie-Louise has worked in every department at PGV. She deals with enquiries to accounts to organising the arrival details of each and every client who books with PGV. She is the rock and backbone of the company and maintains a great relationship will all of our owners and suppliers. The truth is if it wasnt without her Pretty Greek Villas wouldn't be what it is today.

ML trained at the RSAMD where she studied joint voice and piano. She worked for a sound to picture production studio in London called the Music Scultpures as weel as helping set up numerous IT businesses. In the mid 90s ML came to Greece and feel in love with everything Hellenic.

The feedback below from Kate Homes sums her up.......

"Hi Marie Louise
Thank you so much, you are the MOST efficient person in Greece, actually you should be running the country!   I will await your answer from Lisa. thank you very much. Tracy Hanbury also said how well organised you are.   Best wishes"

Ben Bland

Ben started Pretty Greek Villas with Marie-Louise in 2002. At the time he was singing opera, performing as a Bass soloist.

It was 2004 and the Olympic Games had arrived in Athens. Ben managed to convince many of the sponsors of the games and the members of the press to book apartments in Athens. It was after this experience that Ben and Marie-Louise were able to create the website prettygreekvillas.com and fund the promotional expense which gave Pretty Greek Villas the exposure that attracted both guests and owners alike.

Ben designs the systems which make Pretty Greek Villas as efficient as possible. All the villas have been visited by Ben and many of the photographic work, particularly in the early years was taken by Ben. He has a maticulous eye for detail, a creative flair and strives for perfection.

Vickie Tasiopoulou

Vickie came to work full time for Pretty Greek Villas in 2011. 

She communicates with the owners of our villas on a regular basis and maintains the calendars which are essential for our system to work effectively. Vickie arranges many aspects behind the scenes - organising car hire and boat hire, making sure that the arrival day runs as smoothly as possible. Vickie up dates and cross checks and keeps us all in order. A new villa arrives in her inbox and she decides if it is something that we should consider persuing further. 

Website management is a huge task and Vickie has an eye for what works and what doesn't she is a great asset to our office enviroment and manages to combine all of this with raising her son and taking care of her family.

Vickie also takes care of many telephone calls, 'Pretty Greek Villas, can I help you?'

Vass the Taxi driver

OK, we work with many people throughout Greece but Vassilis has been escorting our guests for many years from Athens airport to the ferry ports around the Athens area as well as taxi transfers to Porto Heli.

He has also taken some of our guests on a guided taxi tour of Athens and the feedback for Vassilis has been 100% 

Without good people like Vassilis, Pretty Greek Villas wouldnt be able to offer those little 'extras' which make our service personal.

Albert the Dog

It's a dogs life but someones got to do it! and who better to 'vet' our villas for your four legged companions. 

Bored of bone idleness, Albert volanteered to test the reactions of our villa owners to see which of them passed. He makes his own marks and remarks at the villas he stays in and decides which of them are suitable for his four-legged friends.

Of course he expects that all dogs, that are accompanied to our villas will be on their best behavior. Just like him!
