ATHENS CENTER ACCESS:
There is a bus stop at just 600m from the apartment for the express bus to the Metro station. The bus leaves every 20 minutes and quickly brings you to the Metro station which takes you straight into Athens Center, making also a stop near the Acropolis.
On the other hand however you are also just around the corner from Athens center, one of Europe's most interesting cities with many breathtaking sites to see and visit, such as of course the Acropolis. The city however also offers a number of other large impressive ancient sites, where one feels like taking a journey back into time. Little trains, open air double deck buses, horse carts, stand up mopeds and family bike carts are just a few of the means available to explore the breathtaking Athens center around the Acropolis. The new modern and impressive Acropolis museum, which has been voted amongst the best museums in the world, is a “must”. The world famous "Plaka" tourist area, with it's many narrow roads full of little shops and restaurants with live music, is considered to be one of the best tourist areas of any city in Europe and is an “obligatory visit”, both during the day as well as in the evening; experiencing that special “Athens by Night” feeling ! Lycabettus hill with the Teleferic train taking you up hill inside (!) the mountain, where you can sit at the top restaurant and have a magnificent view over the city all the way to Piraeus harbor, truly is impressive. One must also visit the parliament building with the traditional Greek guards and of course let's not forget the lively center of modern Athens itself, with a it's famous nightlife. The picturesque "Mikrolimano" harbour in Piraeus (40 minutes by car from the villa) also is a tourist favorite.
My name is Constantinos, I am a 55 year old journalist and writer.
I speak fluent Greek, English, French, German, and Dutch.
My wife and I used to live in Athens center but 10 years ago, after holidaying in the area, we decided to go with our (then) small son for quality of life and moved to the beautiful Athenian Riviera.
It is a peaceful, secure place with friendly people, where one can still enjoy authentic Greek hospitality.
Our new property is located in a quiet street, at a short 5 minute walking distance from several lovely sandy beaches.
I live near the property and am always available for any info or assistance you might need.
This Villa constitutes truly "the best of both worlds", it combines a relaxed beach holiday with a city trip to Athens
Just south of the hustle and bustle of central Athens lies one of the city’s most treasured assets, also known as “Greece’s best kept secret”: “The Athenian Riviera”.
You won't find the "Athenian Riviera" on any Google map; the name is local shorthand for the beautiful scenic strip of coastline, that stretches from the municipality of Paleo Faliro, just south of Athens, to the spectacular Cape Sounion, at the southernmost tip of the Attica province peninsula.
Easily accessible by car, bus or tram, the Athenian Riviera is a “must-see” for anyone wanting to enjoy Athens to its fullest. All along the gorgeous photogenic stretch of palm tree coastline, with it's five-star resorts, spas, esplanades, marinas, rocky coves, windsurfing, sailing and sandy beaches with blue-flag certified crystal clear waters, you can experience the kind of island magic that many people come to Greece for, …. without having to set foot on a ferry !
The fully detached Villa is at a short walking distance from several of the best sandy beaches in Greece (one of which is open all year), has a large enclosed front courtyard where children can securely play, a large lawn garden with swimming pool and also is "just around the corner from Athens center".
The owner is available to take his guests on several private one day tours with his car, to important archaeological site such as ancient Corinth, Delphi etc.

Nous avons passé un excellent sejour en famille de presque 15 jours. La villa est très agréable proche de la mer et des commerces. La piscine est un atout en aprticulier le soir après la journée consacrée aux visites. Bien située, nous avons pu visiter la région et Athènes . Nous ne connaissions par la Grèce et nous n'avons pas été déçus. Les grecs sont très acceuillants et chaleureux. Notre hôte Constantin a été un excellent guide et à l'écoute de nos demandes. C'est certain nous reviendrons.
Une superbe villa idéale pour trois familles,avec trois étages totalement indépendants. Cette villa possède une cour à l'avant permettant aux enfants de jouer en toute sécurité, et une très jolie piscine à l'arrière avec une pelouse. Côté équipement, la maison possède tout le nécessaire.
Vous trouverez également de jolies plages à proximité et un très bon restaurant où l'on peut manger pour pas cher.
Si vous souhaitez visiter la Grèce, n'hésitez pas à faire appel à Constantin qui est disponible, accueillant et très cultivé. Il vous fera visiter des lieux magiques!
Non loin de là, il est également possible de visiter de jolies villes sur la côte et de magnifiques îles comme Egine ou Hydra!
En bref, une très jolie destination à faire absolument!
A little about the property before, I tell you why here….
The property itself is nice and provides several options depending on your needs. There are three apartments you can choose from. This is perfect for large family or groups that want to be together but have some separation. The property has a great front court area that is tiled and a wonderful contained back garden with pool and a grass area, great for children that want to run around.
The location of the property is wonderful; you are walking distance to a beach, restaurant and bakery. My family rented a car, which did prove to be nice to have. It allowed us to explore the area more and stock up on items one of several markets. We also reserved a car seat which too was nice to have. You will learn quickly that Greek drivers tend to move quickly.
So why should you rent here?
In all likelihood if you have been searching for somewhere to stay in this area, you have probably seen properties that offer a bit more in terms of being upscale in terms of décor, layout, etc. You have probably seen properties that offer everything above I mentioned as well. What you get with this property goes well beyond the great accommodations, great value and great location.
What you won’t get with other properties is Con, the host. This man is wonderful. Simply put, what he did for us was well above our expectations. Our trip to Greece was not just a vacation for my family. We came over to Greece in attempt to grow our family with IVF/Egg Donor. Because the process would take up to 10 days, we decided to bring our little two year old daughter and my wife’s mother to help when we had to be at the clinic. Con made the stressful side of our trip much easier. He took us to and from the clinic, twice. He checked in on us all the time, offering words of encouragement that you knew were sincere. Con will go out of his way to make sure you have a wonderful stay. He will meet you at the airport, show you around the area and will sit with you to explain how to get to and from the city. Con goes above and beyond with no expectations. He does this simply because he truly wants you to be comfortable and enjoy your time there.
No matter the outcome for my family, we will look back at our trip to Greece with very fond memories, many as a result of our host. He made the stressful side of our trip easy. Simply put, you can stay anywhere, but you likely won’t get someone like Con.
We stayed for a week as a family of four (2 young kids) and echo the other posters' fantastic reviews.
The villa is clean and looks exactly like the photos. The bedrooms are on the small side but we prefer that this allows the large dining and living room space. The house had most things that we needed to cook (we ate dinner at home most nights) including even children's plates. Our host prepared a baby crib and baby chair which were much appreciated.
It was too cold to swim in the pool but it was great having the private, gated garden for our 3-year-old to run around in, as well as sit in the garden to eat lunch in.
We loved sitting by the beach (there are three within walking distance) for lunch while our daughter played nearby. There is also one with a small kids playground!
Last but not least, Constantin is the most helpful host we have encountered. He sent extremely thorough information pre-arrival, picked us up from the airport and even bought some items for our breakfast the next day since we arrived late and stores were closed! He gave us many useful tips and was always available to help us. He went a step further than what I would expect from a host; Example, it started to rain while we were out and he covered our laundry with a plastic sheet without us asking!
The only thing to call out is that it is about 1-1.5 hour from Athens and due to being low season, buses were irregular, and on one occasion the Metro stopped working. (There was also a transport strike on one day) However, Constantin went out of his way to help us since we did not have a car.
Choosing to rent Con's apartment was a good decision. The penthouse apartment was immaculately clean and the views from its three balconies were wonderful to wake up to. The local area is great; everything needed for a family break. Indeed, the local beach bar became our regular haunt! Nearby supermarkets, cheap restaurants and a fab local shop meant that we felt part of the community instantly. Athens is a bus and metro away, via a stunning coastal route. It was no bother to get to Athens and then return home for a drink and snacks at the beach by sunset. Con is a great guy. Friendly, helpful and kind to all. Stay here for a memorable week on the Attica coast.
