                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About: 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.

                  Why 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  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.
