About Matthew Card

My name is Matt Card, I am 48 years old and live in Kent. I work full time as a shift operator at Medway Power Station, which is a CCGT natural gas power station. I am married to Karen and we have 6 children. I am also a part time fire fighter for the Kent Fire and Rescue Service.

Matthew Card purchased this villa in 2004

Why Matthew Card chose Kokkari

My Father purchased the property in 2004 and began renting it out in 2005 after extensive refurbishment and restoration. He had been traveling all over Greece since 1978 and eventually fell in love with Samos and in particular Kokkari, so decided to buy a property there. He sadly passed away in 2009 before he had a chance to retire and live in the house. It was left to my Sister and I and we have carried on renting for the past year or so. Kokkari is a very typical beautiful greek fishing village, with a lovely atmosphere and great tavernas. The surrounding area is also stunning especially up in the hills and mountains.

What makes this villa unique

The house is in the centre of the village very close to the bakery, shops and tavernas. It is approximately 60 metres from the main town beach, were wind surfing is a very popular pass time. There are two smaller quieter beaches about 10 minutes walk away.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We ( 4 audits and a baby)stayed in Matt's house for two nights (wish we would stay longer). It is a wonderful Greek house with a soul located close to the beach and old town. Will definitely try to book it again when we return to Samos.

Perfect villa, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything we had expected and made travelling with two toddlers that bit easier. Would highly recommend staying here and really wish we could go back tomorrow! You are spoilt for choice with restaurants within minutes away from the villa and loved discovering the completely different vibe the harbour had. The owner is excellent at making sure you have all the information you need before you go and the housekeeper Marina is lovely.
