‘Small but perfectly formed’ is definitely a phrase that applies to the Hotel Villa Eden. With just 16 rooms, it’s certainly petite. And, as the name suggests, its gardens are like a little slice of paradise. So you can make the most of the great outdoors. And set in the middle of it all is a swimming pool bordered by a sun terrace.
Outside, it’s painted in the classic Mediterranean combination of peaches and cream, with lots of open stone-work on show. Inside, meanwhile, it’s light, airy and uncluttered. The rooms are whitewashed with tiled floors and a few pieces of dark wood furniture complete the authentic Greek picture. They’ve also got a small kitchenette.
Location-wise, it’s close to the centre of Thassos Town, with bars and restaurants virtually on the doorstep. There’s a small sandy cove less than five minutes’ walk away, and the main beach is just five minutes further on. What’s more, there’s a bus stop 100 metres from the hotel’s door, so getting around is a doddle.

Surrounded by lawned gardens and a terrace lined with sunloungers.
With seating in the gardens, if you fancy a spot al fresco dining.
There is a swing and seesaw for the little ones to have a play on.

Thanks Again for a GREAT Time
Another visit that was as good as ever. If you are looking for clean , simple Greek accommodation, just out of the town, but not too far, with friendly and helpful owners , LOOK NO FURTHER! Villa Eden is a place that I can thoroughly recommend. I , and my wife feel so fortunate to have found these rooms, they suit are needs to a T and that's why we keep coming back. As you will see from other peoples comments the Island of Thassos gets you hooked, with its friendly residents, varied places to eat, good weather and some wonderful scenery. I , at times, find it difficult to explain why we keep coming back, but its just a great place to have a great time. Book up and go , I feel sure that you will not be disappointed. Dimitri and Denise, thanks again and see you next year,More
Just as good as previous visits see you 2014
From the title of this review you will gather that we have visited Villa Eden before, it ,like the island of Thassos ,gets into your blood. The people are some of the best we have met on our holidays, and together with the wonderful scenery and excellent weather are the main reason we keep returning. Dimitri and his English wife Denise do all they can to make everyone's holiday special, an impossible task I am sure, but that seems to be their aim. There two boys are lively and give the place a true family feel . The rooms are kept wonderfully clean and the gardens and pool add to the ambiance of The Villa Eden. On this visit we again met up with some wonderful guests, both old and new, we can only thoroughly recommend these apartments. They provide us with all we need for a relaxing and simple Greek holiday. Thanks again , and see you June 2014.More
Lovely friendly owners. Spacious rooms - even the studio gave the 3 of us lots of space. Great pool and gardens. Supermarket almost next door, Stella's bakery a short stroll for spinach pie and pastries. kettle AND toaster! Good sized towels, not your usual postage stamp. And the cleanest place in Greece I have ever stayed at. A bit out of town, but that means you get a chance to walk off the spinach pie.More

Chilled out holiday
Spent one week here in August with my sister. The rooms are quite small but kept spotlessly clean. The balcony overlooked the pool area and some reviews mentioned that rooms overlooking the pool could be noisy from the road outside, we never heard the traffic once. Bathroom was the only disappointment and was desperately in need of updating. Air con was charged for on arrival and is in need of a service as we needed it down to lowest setting to feel any slight cooling of the room. The gardens are lovely and the choice of pools great as it allows children to be in one whilst adults can swim in the other. Thassos town was a lovely surprise with all the tavernas and the little bars on the harbour at night so relaxing. The best airport to hotel transfer ever..ferry is a lovely way to arrive on the island and is so organised. We booked needing a chilled out holiday and got exactly that!! PerfectMore

In a word....Chilled
We had never been to Thassos, but wanted a relaxing couple of weeks of just chillin. Villa Eden and the Ireland didn't disappoint. We will definitely be back. Don't be put off by the ferry journey, it is all so effortless. You board an air conditioned coach from Kavala airport, and transferred to the ferry, approx 15 mins and walk onto the ferry, your luggage remains on the coach. It is a huge ferry, with inside space with seats, with a snack bar, selling snacks, hot and cold drinks and alcohol, very reasonably priced. The upper decks have limited shade ( I took my sunscreen out of my case at the airport and was very glad I did). It gets very hot. The transfer is approx 40 mins and then you board the coach again once on Thassos Island and taken to your destination. We were met by Demetri at Eden Villa, who showed us to our room, small, but spotlessly clean, with full sized fridge and a two plate cooker top. All of the cutlery, crockery and pans that you need. Air conditioning and a wall mounted safe available, both cost us 130 euro for the fortnight. The safe is very small, and will not accommodate an iPad or anything else that size. Wifi is free, however, hit and miss, we couldn't get it in our room (7) but could on the small balcony. Eden shares the same ground as Demetri's sister's place Villa Elias. You are welcome to use the facilities of either place. The grounds are green and lush, and beautifully maintained by Demetri and his two gorgeous sons Luca 4 and Yanis 8, who speak both Greek and English. Both have a small swimming pool, plenty of loungers. Elias provides, hot and cold drinks, a large Mythos is 2.50 euro and a greek salad ( big enough for 2) 4.5 euros all very reasonable. Demetri's English wife Denise, is delightful and happy to help in anyway possible. The place is lovely and peaceful. Villa Eden is a 7 minute walk to the bus station and the staff there are very helpful, we didn't hire a car, as the busses are very reliable, air conditioned and cheap. Beaches.....the best for us was a 15 min walk from Eden, walk down to the sea and turn left and walk until you come to a road that has 3 trees in the middle, walk on until you come to Papias beach bar, the sea has been cleared of all rocks and stones, the staff are delightful, you only need to order one drink ( we started with an iced coffee which come with water only 2.50 euro) and the sun beds and umbrella are your all day. Food is very good and cheap . Beautiful views across the sea. Food... Lunch time we usually had a salad and fish from Papias, Just down the road from Eden on the sea road is Mussess fish restaurant, don't be put off it does so much more than fish, great pizza, salads etc. the main attraction for us was the fantastic live music very night except Mondays. In the old town, take a right out of Eden and keep walking on that road, approx 10 mins. You will come across Thassian-Doukas resturant, don't be put off by the guys calling you into the place, the food is the best, and a great atmosphere . Again to the old town, our favourite and the cheapest is a tiny pace only open in the evening Masabuka... You have to queue, but a must, you eat off Greece-proof paper with a wooden board with all of your food served on it, chicken, pork souvlaki, meatballs, pitta, chips and lots of different sauces, check out the reviews on Tripadvisor . Wine... Greece doesn't have the best track record however, at the supermarket next door to Eden, the Rose Nightingale is lush and only 2.30 Euro a bottle . We will definitely be back, felt totally chilled outMore
