- english, greek
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 Mets
'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!

This was a fabulous stay!
Urania told us that this would be a wonderful stay, and it was. It is located right by the Acropolis and we visited it and the Acropolis Museum. We had fantastic food at the nearby locations. In all, it was a delightful vacation.
The Athens experience
Owner Urania was always responsive to my questions and our host Marika was informative on the the workings of the STRATIS home as well as what to see in Athens above and beyond the Acropolis and other historical sites. Air conditioning was fantastic in home and local plakas provided short walking distance to great food and shops. In fact our walking distance to acropolis museum was only 15 minutes. For close proximity to the acropolis and other major sites this is the place to go! Love the STRATIS!
Marika was very welcoming and provided valuable information about the condo and the area upon check-in.
Perfect for women travelers
The property is exactly as represented on the site and in the reviews. It is a quiet and comfortable retreat within the city. What I would like to add is that The Mets is a perfect condo for women travelers, whether in a small group or alone. The area is safe to walk with small shops, pharmacy, tavernas and a coffee shop just around the corner. You can walk to the Acropolis and upscale shopping areas, or easily grab a taxi on a busy thoroughfare just a short walk down the block. We had a great time in Athens and enjoyed staying at The Mets.
Side note: In the property notes, Antonis is recommended for pick-up and drop- off at the airport, I would highly recommend doing that. Great guy.
Great Central Location
This place completely met our expectations! It was close to the Acropolis and the Plaka which made every day easy to slepp in if we wanted and wander out at our leisure. The neighborhood is completely safe, just watch when you cross the road. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and we used Antonis for the airport pickup which was a very smart decision and takes the stress of landing and getting your bearings much simpler. There wasn't a single negative thing to mention about this apartment and we loved the fact that it has a neighborhood feel just around the corner if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Would definitely stay there again!
Gem of a Place
We very much enjoyed this lovely, cozy condo right in the heart of the Athens tourist area. No need for taxis, which was such a relief! Marika was very warm and welcoming and was happy to arrange our transport to the airport upon leaving. Antonis the driver was very friendly. Loved the condo...clean, well-appointed, quiet. Urania the owner was also very responsive to all my questions when we booked the property. All in all, a super choice for us! We would recommend it to anyone (except for the dates we want to come back!)
