just about perfect . . .

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property in an excellent, quiet, safe and charming location. All of the amenities in the apartment worked as expected, it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and relaxing - it left nothing to be desired. The outdoor walks on the waterfront (very close by) were rich and relaxing, and the local restaurants, beach area, people - just fun and enjoyable to experience. Dimitris was a wonderful host and provided friendly, responsive assistance in every way we needed as newcomers to the country. If we return to the Athens area - we will rebook. We loved it.

This villa has everything. We were a group of 7 adults and rented both levels. The view from the upper level is fantastic! Most our time here was spent sitting on the balcony looking out at the water. There is also a little balcony off each bedroom with a nice view of the hills. It was so nice having a kitchen and washing machine for clothes. The owners are so welcoming and kind and can provide everything you can think of. I had mentioned how much I love green figs and they had some waiting for us on arrival in addition to their homemade preserves.

Best of all, the location! Did I mention the fantastic view? Short walking distance to a beautiful family beach and taverna. Short drive from Athens airport and Athens Metro. Easy day trips to Sounion, Ancient Corinth, Napflion, Epidavros, and Poros...just to name a few.

We absolutely would stay here again and hope to return soon!

  • 4 of 5

Un appartement agréable et spacieux. Dimitris et sa femme sont très accueillants et disponibles pour toute question. Dimitris est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport et nous y conduire. La petite plage juste à côté est très agréable et peu visitée, spécialement en avril.

Seul petit bémol : la voiture louée ne fut pas à la hauteur de nos espérances. Mais à part ça, nous avons passé un excellent séjour. Nous recommandons !

Wonderful comfortable place near the sea! Чудесно!

  • 4 of 5

Together with our friends from Chicago we spent a wonderful holiday here! It was in August 2015.

This is a little and quiet place.

The house is comfortable and clean,really near the sea. Just five minutes and you are there!

Our owner, Dimitry, is nice and well-educated person. He was very kind to us, helped us with everything.

I should recommend this prorerty to all my friends with pleasure!

If we again will be in Greece to relax, we are going to live exactly here.Thanks awfully, Dimitry!

Вместе с нашими друзьями мы провели здесь чудесный отпуск в августе 2015 !

Это маленькое и тихое место.

Удобный и чистый дом, который находится очень недалеко от моря. Пять минут и вы там.

Хозяин дома, Димитрий, - прекрасный , интеллигентный человек. Он был очень добр к нам, помогал во всем.

Я с удовольствием рекомендую своим друзьям этот дом!

Если мы снова будем отдыхать в Греции, будем жить именно здесь.

Огромное спасибо, Димитрий!

One of the best seaside resorts in Attica. About 50 minutes(40 km) from Athens downtown using a car and/ or the metro and 15km from Athens international airport.

The house is sea view. The seaside is 150m 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 rocky coast proper for diving.

About 500 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.With a canoe or by swimming one can reach the small island Coronia that is opposite of the house, in a distance of about 800m from the coastline.

Close to the organized 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 taverns,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 among the top five clearest in Attica.

Approximately 15 km away is the Koropi suburban and metro 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 1.40 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)

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.
