About the property

2 BR, 1.5 BA, sleeps 4

The 'STRATIS' is your Home away from Home in the center of Athens, which gives you the best of two worlds.

It is entrenched in the heart of the antiquities and shopping, a stone's throw away from many historical archeological finds and still nestled in a quaint location. Just a few minutes walk to many of the major sites: the Acropolis, the 'New' Acropolis Museum', Zeus Olympius Temple, Adrian’s Arch, the Marble Stadium, National Gardens, Plaka, Syntagma Square and so much more! The Metro and Tram are also just minutes away to easily take you to the beaches, waterfront restaurants and other surrounding suburbs.

This deluxe condo is in the quiet neighborhood of “Metz” that offers fresh food markets, bakeries, a pharmacy, video store, parking garage and local restaurants. So the convenience to everywhere is never a question - location is fabulous!

Located on the second floor of a newly constructed six story building, this condo is beautifully decorated with a taste of Classical Greece brought into the 21st Century. With two bedrooms and 1 and 1/2 bath, it comfortably accommodates up to 4 persons.

Whether you are visiting the city, traveling the mainland of Greece or on your way to and from the infamous islands, you will have the luxury of the conveniences of your own home with a washer and dryer, two TVs, DVD player, stereo system and air-conditioning in every room. We also provide WiFi for those who want to stay connected to the rest of the world!

The fully equipped kitchen affords you the option of a quick bite to eat or preparing a full meal before you venture out to the sights and sounds of Athens.

Imagine being able to return home from the day's adventure and relaxing with some feta cheese, Greek olives and a glass of Greek wine before returning to the exciting night life of Athens! The options offered are endless!

The “Stratis” is the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel!

About Urania

My mother, siblings and children live in the northeastern part of the United States. Although we have traveled to Greece over the years, having our own home now allows us to visit several times every year. Most of our friends and family still live in our neighborhood. It could not be better!

All of us speak the Greek language and are familiar with Athens and other parts of the country. We would be happy to help where we can to make your trip more pleasurable.

Thank you for considering our Athens home!

Urania purchased this condo in 2005

Why Urania chose Athens

'The Stratis' was built in 2005 on the property where our family first immigrated to Athens from other parts of Greece over 100 years ago. Although there were many memories made throughout the decades, we chose to re-build with all the modern conveniences so that our family and friends could enjoy our home for many more years to come.

We are located less than 30 minutes from the airport and the major ferry port, where we are able to leave for day cruises or longer. Public transportation and taxis afford us the luxury of being able to go to the local beaches and mountains for the day. There are also car rental companies within a few blocks when we want to travel through the mainland of Greece.

Our condominium becomes home base so we can visit with family and friends and still vacation. It is truly our 'home away from home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We went to Athens during Christmas, 2009, to visit our daughter who is teaching English literature in a local prep school. The condo was great, and the weather cooperated. We had all the amenities we needed and food stores were within walking distance. Marika, the local manager, is a great minister of hospitality as well. This condo should be a serious consideration if you're planning a trip to Athens.

Perfect for our stay in Athens

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful apartment equipped with everything we needed. Ourania was extremely helpful with all the information she gave us. Marika met us at the apartment and explained everything to us. She was wonderful with everything! The location of the apartment is perfect to visit many of the sights in Athens. We were able to walk to the Acropolis Museum, Syntagma Square, Plaka, Monastiraki and many other places in the center of Athens. Antoni the taxi driver recommended to us was very helpful in picking up our relatives at the airport and bringing them to the apartment. Overall, it was a very positive experience and would love to use the apartment again when we visit Athens. Thank you, Ourania, Marika and Antoni.

Comfortable accomodations TERRIFIC location

  • 5 of 5

This unit had everything we needed to fully enjoy our visit to Athens. Groceries, bakeries and cafes are just around the corner for daily needs. The location couldn't have been much closer to all the major sites of Athens. Though the Metro & tram are also right outside the door we found we could cover much of Athens via walking w/o issue from this unit. Host & Hostess were very accommodating of our somewhat late departure time(s) as to handle our luggage while we finished our time in Athens.

3 days in The heart of Athens

  • 5 of 5

My son and I connected in Athens and stayed for 3 days!! We loved where the apartment was situated and we walked everywhere from there. Buses for hop on hop off are very close. Lots of choices for eating, or as we did, we bought food to make dinners and ate out for a few lunches. Everything in the apartment was very clean and very comfortable. I will stay here again when I get back to Greece. We even had food and wine waiting for us when we arrived in. The wifi was great as well!! For our three days of exploring through walking, it was beautiful and easily done. Everyone around was also very helpful!! We also used their suggested taxi service which was so easy and very helpful!
