Why I Love Lemnos
Name: George Virvilis
Position: Resort Manager
Which resort and country do you work in?
Lemnos Village, Greece.
How long have you been working with Mark Warner?
What’s your favourite thing about your resort?
With a maximum of 300 guests I feel it is the perfect size. We create a very social environment where we become a big family after a few days as everyone gets to know each other. Everything is close so you can get involved in all that we offer. Plus, there are some of the greatest sunsets (the whole hotel is west facing) you will ever see.
What are your top 3 favourite things about working with Mark Warner?
Meeting so many people; working with, and nurturing, the youngsters of tomorrow; there is never a boring day.
What are your top 3 favourite things about working in the country that you do?
Being Greek it’s good to be “home”; the abundance of sunshine; the exceptional food.
When you’re not working, what do you do to keep entertained?
I like to try the different local tastes; discover the secluded beaches and to listen to all the different stories from the guests and staff.
What’s your favourite food from the area in which you work?
The local produce on the island is immaculate and the fish is out of this world. Lemnos is known for its fresh fish and I have not been disappointed…not even once!
What’s your favourite local activity?
I like getting involved with the guests as much as possible as I like being a “Mr fix it”. My football days are over so all I do is watch…
If you had one tip for anyone visiting your resort, what would it be?
Be prepared for good winds, great food…and your children begging to come back!
