Roomy home in a lush outdoor setting and old country charm, and Hosts that are all about service.

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a beautiful unhurried part of the village of Mati, It has all of the needed amenities with ample "walking around" room on two levels. A beautiful private front garden and patio entrance. Also 2 upstairs balconies off the bedrooms offering views and privacy for sunning and morning coffee, or just a private personal get-a-way to read and enjoy the quiet and the views. The neighborhood was interesting to walk and explore, and the walk to the sea was an easy 10 minute walk, but the walk back uphill was a bit steep and a bit slower. A couple of small markets were about a 15 to 20 minute walk away. The entire area is hilly and makes for great hiking and exploring, but may be a challenge for small children or those with mobility disabilities. The walk to nearby Rafina is about 45 minutes, but only a 5 minute 6 euro taxi trip. Buses from there to Athens take about 45 minutes and cost about 4 euro each. There are many options for ferry trips to the islands from Rafina port. We took a day tour to Andros at a cost of 32 euro each return and a few hours sightseeing. A beautiful day trip, and returned in time for dinner at one of the many port-side local restaurants. The owners were all about service and couldn't be better. They spoke excellent English. This location is perfect for the "get away from it all" or those loving the easy access to the city combined with the relaxed pace and village peace and quiet. The city access is affordable and quick. The cost of the house in Mati is less than half that of the Hotels in the area and even less than the city. Cooking or eating out, what and when you want is a great option. Because of this, affordability of Taxis are a much better choice than a car rental. Athens is not a city for trying to get around or park a car for the uninitiated. Public transit is very affordable and efficient- especially the transit system. Can highly recommend this location.

Excellent accueil par le propriétaire

  • 4 of 5

Nous garderons un formidable souvenir de la villa et de l'accueil que nous a réservé le propriétaire Jimmy.

Il a fait tout ce qu'il a pu pour que notre séjour soit réussi et a fait venir à plusieurs reprises durant le séjour un ami qui parle très bien Français; Achille, pour nous communiquer toutes les informations utiles concernant la villa elle-même, les sites à visiter et la manière de s'y rendre... car Jimmy parle anglais et nous parlons assez mal l'anglais... Tous les 2 se sont montrés extrêmement dévoués envers nous.

La villa est idéalement située géographiquement; Rafina juste à côté pour toutes les destinations sur les îles ioniennes et proche en bus ou voiture d'Athènes mais préférez le bus pour visiter Athènes (45 minutes bus + métro) car très difficile de s'y garer en voiture.

Pour les sites plus éloignés comme Delphes, Canal de Corinthe, Epidaure, Mycènes etc...véhicule indispensable (location abordable chez Hertz à l'aéroport (30 km de la villa) et ne pas oublier de prendre l'option GPS (qui traduit sans problème les destinations avec notre alphabet).

La villa est agréable, prévoir juste un bandeau pour les personnes qui souhaitent dormir dans le noir car il n'y a pas de volets.

La villa était adaptée pour nous 5.

Encore un grand MERCI à Jimmy et Achille et même Mike! qui est un ami de Jimmy et qui est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport le samedi soir et nous a emmené dans le seul petit supermarché ouvert a proximité de la villa (arrivée après 20h villa) pour que nous puissions acheter à manger...
