The land was a family property since 1976.
The building was constructed during 2011-14.
Unique seaview from veranda- peacefull neighborhood-green scenery-away from metropolitan area noise and from city lights and air pollution.
Can observe the sky stars and hear the birds sounds.
Clear sea -fresh sea air breeze.
Very good, but not enough green plants on site. Dimitris, thank you for all! But the territory must be put in order. Otherwise no complaints.
Liked the king size bed. Well decorated. Great views. Good clean space for two. When the flat is completely finished it will be a very nice rental. Excellent access to the beach and restaurants. The landlord is very accomodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Porto Rafti. The flat was very clean and comfortable, and the service provided by the owner was first-class. It was within a short walk to a beautiful beach with a wonderful taverna that served great food! We will definitely stay here again!!! Thank you, Dimitris!
The owners were very friendly and helpful in any moment needed.Well maintained house. Perfect location for a nice get away vacation for the whole family. Close to all kings of other facilities for a variety of different activities.
Definitely a recommended place for vacations!
An excellent place to stay in Porto Rafti, and in Athens itself for that matter. Anyone needing to be in the Athens area would be well advised to stay here by the sea with all that Porto Rafti has to offer, rather than the city center. The owners are lovely people and we hope to have a chance to come and stay here again some time
We really enjoyed our stay in the appartment.
The location was ideal from several points of view. We arrived in Athens, so it was really a short drive. The appartment itself is really very close to the beach and the sea. Still, should the weather not invite to go to the beach, or should anyone want some culture, there is enough in the region to visite. We visited the Poseidon temple in Sounio, the archeaological sites of Vravrona and Elefsina.
The beach and the neighbourhood were very quiet. The seawater was really clean.
During the summer the small beaches might be crowded, but if you have a car, you can drive to a more quiete place.
The appartment itself has everything one can wish: very well equiped, clean, the owners are friendly and helpfull.
The region seems authentic and greek, not invaded by lots of foreign tourist, as many roadsigns are just in greek. So it helps if one knows the greek alphabet.
One of the best seaside resorts in Attica. About 50 minutes from Athens downtown using a car and the metro.
The house is sea view. The seaside is 130m away from house where you can find either a sandy beach or a rocky coast.
Along the seafront there is a concrete paved footpath for walking - jogging or biking.At the end of this footpath and 100m beyond further, one can find a small culf proper for diving.
About 300 m away from the house there is an organized sandy beach with umbrellas and sunbeds.General entrance to the beach 5 euro,kids 3 euro.There you can find some sea sports and sea games mainly for kids...sea-bikes,cayaking,etc.You can use a sea-bike or cayak to visit the small island Coronia that is in front of the house, in a distance of about 800m from the coastline.
Close to this beach you can find some free mud baths.
There is a tavern called Panorama in the beach ,nearby property, open throughout the year with good food on reasonable prices.
Within 3-5 kms distance, along the main seacoast road,there is a shopping area with tavernas,food markets, super markets,beach bars,banks etc.
