About Maria or Anthony Lamberis

Maria is a retired educator, Tony is a semi-retired attorney who is still busy with some cases.

We purchased this property for its location to the center of Athens, and easy access to the beaches. The Metro is 5 fast stops to Syndagma and the tram takes you to the numerous city beaches in the summer.

I also was a part time travel agent and can help travellers with their holiday plans to islands and greek villages.

We love travelling but understand comfort.

We live in Michigan 7 months out of the year and reside in South Africa, and Greece the rest of the time.

Maria or Anthony Lamberis purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Maria or Anthony Lamberis chose Central Athens

Our property has an open living space between Large entrance, living room and dining room. It is NOT NARROW as most other new constructions display. It is extremely spacious - 1300 sq. ft. Read some of our reviews to get a better idea as to why this property over others. Have a look at the youtube link as well.

What makes this apartment unique

the location is great, near the center of Athens (Syndagma), 7 minutes away on Metro Rail from the apartment. The local tram, a 2 minutes walk away, takes you to the numerous beaches of Athens. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, and has some of the best restaurants in the city. They are very reasonable, and authentic Greek cuisine. That was one of the reasons why we love it here. Live like a local. Buy fresh produce from the farmer's market down the road.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick note to let you know what a great time Rebecca and I had in Greece.  Your property is truly wonderful.  Very close to the metro - which we used frequently and so many great cafes - we took advantage of it all.  Eleni is a truly wonderful ambassador for your place.  Eleni was beyond helpful and we felt perfectly “looked after”.  Not too much and not too little….she is a delight!



We ventured out to Santorini and had a remarkable couple of days out there.  Everything was superb. It was a remarkable experience for me - one whom has been to Europe several times - to see it through the eyes of an 18 year old who is on her first European adventure.



Thank you for being a part of this trip - all the info and the suggestions.



Greece will be in our travel plans in the years ahead.

A Oasis of hospitality and Space

  • 5 of 5
Spacious apartment in a great location. You get a real Greek hospitality and experience. Near a large park to sit and watch the local life while you enjoy a great meal or just a coffee.
We spent 6 nights at the apartment, and enjoyed ourselves immensely here. I wish we had been able to stay longer, as we loved this apartment. The owner, Maria, is a terrific Lady, who gave us over the top information. She sent us maps and instructions in advance, so it was easy to find the apartment, she also gave us great tips about the neighborhood and Athens in general. Her agent lives below the apartment (separate entrance), who was available at all times. Walked us around the neighborhood on our first day.

We loved the neighborhood; a short walk to the metro station, and close to all the major bus lines. Lots of grocery stores, bakeries and cafes nearby, even a child's playground. It was nice not to be in the heart of “tourist” Athens, yet close enough to all the attractions.

The apartment is lovely! Very spacious, well furnished, exactly as described. The air conditioners worked extremely well, so if you are here during the hot summer months, you’ll be assured of a cool oasis in the city. Complimentary wi-fi access and even free cell phone to make local calls, or call a taxi.
I highly recommend this apartment, and I will stay here again on my next visit to Athens. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Away From The Crowds

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO experience and, as a result of Maria and her great apartment, it won’t be the last. We were impressed from the time we made the reservation to when we left. To begin with, every time we opened our E-mail there was something from Maria describing the Athens sights, the shops, the cafes, food translations and ease of travel. It was all very helpful.
The excellent experience with the apartment itself began when we met Elena, Maria’s on-site manager. She showed us around the apartment pointing out the do’s and do not’s. But she wasn’t done. Next she gave us a guided tour of the neighborhood. This included a short walk to the Metro station while pointing out the better cafes and restaurants. She was always there when we needed clarification of some minor point including making arrangements for a taxi to get us to the airport when our time was up.
The apartment was very comfortably furnished with memorabilia from the family’s own travels. Rooms were clean and good size. The location was perfect. A short walk and we were on the Metro headed for one of the many museums, shops, or tours to other parts of Athens/Greece.
An added treat was the Wednesday’s farmer’s market just a block away. It extended several blocks and was loaded with brilliantly colored fresh vegetables, fruit, seafood, fish and fresh meats. One farmer had 19 baskets filled with different olives. We were leaving the next day so we were not able to enjoy the bounty of the farmer’s work.
We strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a very accommodating stay in Athens.

GREAT FIND

  • 5 of 5
THIS APARTMENT IS A TRULY GREAT FIND IN ATHENS. IT IS LOCATED AT A NICE LOCAL GREEK COMMUNITY, CLOSE TO THE METRO AND WALKING DISTANCE TO GOOD RESTAURANTS, COFFEE SHOPS AND GROCERY STORES.
THE APARTMENT IS MINUTES AWAY FROM ALL THE GREAR SITES YOU WANT TO VISIT IN ATHENS.
WE FOLLOWED MARIAS RECOMMENDATIONS TO ENHANCE OUR STAY. ELENA , OUR AGENT WAS VERY HELPFUL AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO HELP US WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON WHERE TO GO AND WHERE TO EAT.
THERE IS ALSO AN ENGLISHMAN WHO CAN TAKE YOU TO SOME SHORT TRIPS -LIKE SOUNIO FOR A GREAT SUNSET AND THE TEMPLE OF POSEIDON. HIS PRICES ARE REASONABLE AND VERY CONVENIENT TO ENJOY THESE SHORT EXCURSIONS.
KUDOS TO BOTH LADIES FOR ALL THEIR HELP AND TO MAKE US FEEL LIKE FAMILY.
WE WILL BE RETURNING HERE SINCE MY WIFE IS AN INTERNATIONAL LAWYER AND WORKS IN GREECE OFTEN.

All we hoped for

  • 5 of 5
My comments would reflect those already posted. The location was very convenient, the area quaint, and the apartment very practical. Was it "dated" as some commented? Certainly, but that's because it's someone's home and not the Ritz ( some of which are also "dated".) It's worth noting that access to the unit is up 2 short flights of stairs, so if there's a lot of luggage this could be an issue, though for us, the cab driver and Elena, the manager, we only too willing to help. Other than that we can't say how much we enjoyed the accommodations and would certainly consider going back. But more than this, I believe one of the items not previously mentioned was Maria's constant willingness to assist in our planning, sharing with us all of her knowledge of the area. This was an unexpected and very appreciated addition to our visit. Thanks, Maria and Elena for making our visit so memorable.
