Marpunta Village

4.5

A charming white-washed hideaway with personal service and spellbinding Aegean Sea views.

Alonissos was one of the first islands of the Aegean to be inhabited and – devoid of mass tourism and busy nightlife – this lesser-known destination is very much about old-world Greek charm. One of the gems on the island is the Marpunta Village Club – a charming white-washed hideaway on the south coast peninsula, surrounded by pine forests and the Aegean Sea.

Ideal for laid-back family holidays and couples that want to get away from it all, you’re just a five-minute drive from the stunning bay of Patitiri and the quaint town of Alonissos (there’s a free shuttle bus available) and a five-minute walk from the pretty private pebble beach. Lined by loungers and umbrellas, the spacious freeform pool overlooks the crystal clear Aegean Sea; there’s a casual pool bar serving all day snacks complete with comfy white sofas and a terrace; a Mediterranean à la carte beachfront restaurant for lunch, and dinner is served in the main restaurant with buffet dining and live cooking stations. Laid out in the style of a traditional Greek village, the coastal lounge is perfect for catching some shade, and there is a kids’ pool area, outdoor tennis courts and canoeing, snorkelling and paddleboarding on the beach for when you want to get active.

All rooms and suites have a balcony or terrace and garden or sea views. Due to the natural landscape, many are on the hillside and reached by stairs. Rooms are fresh and contemporary, decorated with splashes of bright colour. The cosy Standard Double Garden View Rooms are designed to represent authentic Alonissian fisherman housing and overlook the gardens from floor-to-ceiling windows. Family Rooms feature two double beds and Superior Sea Front Suites have a separate living area and uninterrupted sea views.
