A very pleasant week

  • 5 of 5

For my kids and me there was enough space in the apartment. The furniture is new and in good style, the kitchen vey well equipped, the owner very kind and helpful.

The sea-view is marvellous and a lttle sandy beach is in a walking-distance of 3 minutes (a bigger one is just a few hundred metrs away). The same time you need to reach the next supermarket by car.

Porto Rafti offers a clean sea for swimmers and is an ideal spot for those people, who want to visit Athens, but not stay the whole time in the city. By car it is easy to get to subway stations Koropi or - perhaps better, because it is closer to the centre - Halandri and then comfortably drive to Akropolis or other destinations in the heart of Athens. Other spots worth to visit are also good to reach by car.

We have already planned to come aggain.

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.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

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

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.

Health services, just in case of an emergency ,are provided in Markopoulo health center.

According to the Greek Center for Ecological Studies the sea in front of house is ranked amongst the top five clearest in Attica.

Approximately 15 km away is the Koropi suburban train station where you can find the suburban railway and the metro that takes you downtown Athens in about 35 mins- the ticket for metro from Koropi suburban station is 1.20 euro -one way.

Don't miss to visit the new Acropolis museum ,below Parthenon cliff,established on 2009.(metro station Acropolis)

Also visit the National Arhaeological Museum of Athens.(metro station Omonia and 10 mins walking)

Pretty close to the museum behind Park hotel you can find an excellent restaurant called ''Alexandria'' at 13,Metsovou st. ,with delicious Greek and Egyptian cuisine, in a delicate atmosphere and environment.

They can offer you a menu with a discount of 10% refering my name.

Visit also cape Sounio area and the ancient temple of Poseidon.

The ferry-boat from Rafina port can take you in about an hour in the South part of Evia island ,where you can visit Karistos(car fee 23 euro-passenger 7 euro)

From Rafina port , a bit north of Porto Rafti,you can also access the Andros island in about 2 hours.

From Lavrion port , south of Porto Rafti,you can access Kea island in about 75 mins.Swim there at the fabulous Spathi beach -southeast coast.It's like swimming in an enormous pool if its not windy...

Visit by car ,if you have time, Nafplion city in Peloponnese,the first capital of Greece.It takes about 2hrs driving-using Attiki odos- to cover the 150 kms.Its one of the most beautiful seaside cities in Greece.

Last but not least...Taste ONLY... EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil in Greece.All the other olive oils are made from the olive cores.The tap water is drinkable in most places of Greece apart from some islands.

Try also the excellent galaktomboureko by Galifianakis paticerie ,next to Alex open theater in Porto Rafti...every Tuesday, there is a 50% discount on it.
