Overview

About the property

Our house is located in a quiet area behind the stadium where took place the first Olympic Games in 1896. It has two fronts, one overlooking a park, the other on the street. We just have renovated this old house but we tried to keep his character well, marble is the material used, the ceiling height is over 4 meters and the furniture is mostly antique. The terrace, which can be reached via an outside staircase is particularly nice. There are plants and palm trees and it is possible to have meals.

Definitely recommended

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in very nice neighborhood where you can find daily and nightly Greek habits. Being close to the center it's easy to move by foot (15-20 min) and by public transportation (5-7min).

The house was big and clean, bathroom and kitchen (fully equipped) were quite abdaptable and we had all comforts ( wifi, tv, washingmachine).

The owners were lovely: they greeted us with fresh water and juice. They suggested us things to do, places to visit, booked theatre show ( Madame butterfly)for us. Lovely lovely lovely. Definitely returning back.

Owner's Response: Manpreet and Chiara are a lovely and a very kind couple and it was a really pleasure to welcome them in our house. They were interested and careful to make the most of their stay in Athens as well as their stay with us. We look forward to see them again for a longer stay. Catherine

Great centralized apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding time at the apartment it had a beautiful rooftop terrace and was centrally located to all the attractions. But what makes Greece the best and especially this apartment is the kindness of the Greek people. One of best parts of stay was having dinner with Catherine and Takis our last night. Their hospitality was second to none and we left as new friends.

Owner's Response: Erik, his wife and their friend were an outstanding company for us and not just our guests. After such a memorable meeting, we hope that our paths will cross again in the future.

large, well-furnished, convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

Large, nicely furnished apartment with a full kitchen with a set of dishes, pots and pans, and kitchen implements. We were 2 adults and 3 children and had plenty of space, with each child in their own room. On a quiet street yet also convenient to shops and public transit, so easy to get to tourist sites. Catherine and her husband Takis were very pleasant and helpful. We didn't get a chance to use the balcony because we were there in winter during a cold spell, so I can't comment on that, but I can confidently say it was an ideal spot for vacationing in Athens.

gunstige ligging t.o.v het centrum van Athene, alles is beloopbaar

  • 4 of 5

Een huis met karakter, met een leuke inrichting. Lieve eigenaren, een warm welkom en een goede documentatie van Athene aanwezig. Goede bedden. Wij waren met zijn tweeën, zo was de kleine badkamer net voldoende ook omdat zich op die badkamer het enige toilet bevond. Eén van de redenen om dit huis te huren was het buitenterras wat echter alleen te bereiken was via twee wenteltrapjes buitenom, minpuntje. De ligging is echter fantastisch, vlakbij alle highlights van Athene (15 minuten lopen).

location calme à 2 pas du centre historique d'Athènes offrant pleins de possibilités

  • 5 of 5

belle location calme avec tout ce qu'il faut pour passer des vacances très agréables. La terrasse est un plus qui permet de se détendre après avoir arpenté les rues d'Athènes. l’arrêt de bus étant très proche de la maison, nous étions en moins de 15 minutes dans le centre. Nous avons profité de tous les attraits de la ville: les musées, sites antiques mais aussi la découverte des petites ruelles avec moins de touristes. grâce au tramway, la mer n'est pas loin et une petite virée vers la côte offre une pause appréciable avec les visites culturelles. Une petite semaine passe vite et n'avons pas eu le temps de faire un petit tour sur les îles. mais nous savons que cela est possible . Nous recommandons cette location.

Une hospitalité "à la grecque"

  • 5 of 5

Très bel accueil de Catherine et Takkis, merci encore à eux deux. Le quartier est superbe et tranquille, l'appartement a une âme (on est loin du standard IKEA) et répond à toutes les exigences de confort. Et l'appartement jouit d'une terrasse unique. Nous recommandons l'appartement, à tous les amoureux de la Grèce.
