Stay in Porto Rafti

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in Porto Rafti. The house had everything we needed and we were easily able to walk to the beach and restaurants. The water was very beautiful for swimming- clear, warm and clean!

Rigissa was so kind and provided us with everything we needed, plus more!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Porto Rafti and we would recommend this house to anybody! The house is fully equipped and located very close to the beach, super market, restaurants and the centre of the town. We were all our family, 3 generations. We loved the house and the garden-it is very peaceful and relaxing to eat your breakfast there. It was ideal for our kids (9 and 5 years old) but also for our mother (73 years old). The kids were playing for hours in the garden (football, with the swings and they riding the bicycles). We will miss it! The house was very clean and comfortable with a lot of space. We did not meet Rigissa, but we met her parents. They were very polite, they made us feel like home, and they were willing to provide us with any kind of help. It was a lovely stay!

Warm hosts, a must visit house, value for money

  • 5 of 5

The house is really big and spacious. The family was very attentive and helpful. We chose this house even though it was new on this site and there were no reviews available. It was an excellent choice and we would highly recommend it. Excellent location, beautiful place and very comfortable rooms. The location is excellent as there is a beach nearby (which is 10min on foot) and we could go for drinks at night without taking the car. There is also a parking space and the garden is huge-ideal for children or/and pets. It is located close to the airport. There are also restaurants and taverns on a five minute drive from the place.

Very clean house, comfy beds/pillows and there is also a fireplace! Owners are very helpful and willing to provide us with anything we wanted with full attention on us during all our stay. Fresh fruits and something to drink awaited us from Rigissa's family, which was great - such a nice touch after long tiring journey! Even though the family did not stay with us, they gave us excellent recommendations about beaches, taverns, coffee-shops and ice-cream shops.

I highly recommend you to visit this lovely place.

Sehr freundlich, sauber und großräumig

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten leider nur eine Übernachtung in Porto Rafti.

Zu kurz für eine wirklich Bewertung.

Allerdings bleibt festzuhalten.

Sehr freundlich von der Mutter der Eigentümerin (Regissa) empfangen worden. Regissa selbst war auf Auslandsreise, trat aber per Telefon mit uns in Verbindung.

Schnelle Antworten per Mail.

Das Haus ist großzügig eingerichtet. Für 2 Paare + 1 Kind kein Problem.

Schöner Garten, große Terasse.

Da wir bereits morgens um 5.00 Uhr los mußten, stand für alle (5 Pers,) ausreichen Bot sowie Kaffee und Tee bereit. Wer ein paar Tage in Porto Rafti verbringen möchte, ist bei Regissa gut aufgehoben.

Avons profité de la terrasse pour nous reposer en attendant notre départ pour la France

Adresse à recommander pour commencer ou finir un séjour en Grèce

Maison lumineuse et très fonctionnelle.

Superschoener Aufenthalt, tolle Menschen.

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt bei Rigissa. Sie ist eine phantastische Gastgeberin und sehr zuvorkommend. Die Verstaendigung auf Englisch war einwandfrei. Das Haus ist komplett ausgestattet sodass der Aufenthalt als sehr komfortabel bezeichnet werden kann. In der Nachbarschaft kann man relativ einfach ein Appartment mieten. Ein freistehendes Haus mit Garten war nirgends verfuegbar. Wie wollten ein freistehendes Haus mit Garten da wir unsere 2 Kinder und Hund komfortabel unterbringen wollten. Alles supersauber! Das Wi-Fi Signal war intensiv und stabil, phantastisches Bett, schoene Kueche, zauberhafter Garten.

Die Klimaanlage ist nagelneu und funktionierte einwandfrei. Die Kinder hatten jede Menge Platz um im Garten Fussball zu spielen und mit dem Hund herumzutollen. Avlaki-Beach ein organisierter Sandstrand, ideal fuer Kinder, liegt ca. 3-5 Autominuten entfernt. Der Standort war fuer uns perfekt, keinerlei Laerm und sichere im Gruenen liegende Umgebung. In 10 Fussminuten erreicht man das Meer und diverse Supermaerkte als auch kleinere Laeden mit frischem Fisch durch lokale Fischer angeboten, frische Fruechte, Gemuese, lokale Winzer und verschiedene Cafeterien. Nur 5 Autominuten entfernt liegt der malerische Hafen von Porto-Rafti. Idyllisch gelegen zum schlendern und schlemmen in den hiesigen Tavernen. Alles in allem eine Super-Erfahrung, wuerden jederzeit wieder hinfahren.

14 kilometres from Koropi metro station, 30 kilometres from Athens. You can go to Athens either by metro from Koropi, or by bus or taxi. The beaches of Saint Marina, Avlaki (organised beach), Saint Spyridonas, are near the port (ideal for a walk and dinner). The is very easy access to super markets, restaurants, ice-cream places, summer cinema, shops and groceries.
