Are you travelling alone? With friends? With your significant other? With children? Are you in Athens for business or leisure? Maybe you're here for your flight layover or to take off with a sailboat for the islands?
Do you want to enjoy Athens but also have the opportunity of a relaxing day by the sea and a super comfy top floor Loft in a quite neighborhood waiting for you?
We would be very glad to host you during your staying in Athens in our beautiful Loft!
We are a family of 6 and when we're in Greece we live at the rest floors of the building. Depending on who you will have the chance to meet you may speak English, French, Italian, Spanish or German!
The property is a newly built Loft on the 4th and top floor (5th for North Americans) of a beautiful and quiet family building in the district of Alimos.
The Loft is an extended modernly designed room with a sleeping area, a living room, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a balcony with *the best view in the area*. It also includes fast wi-fi internet and an A/C unit!
The Loft can easily sleep 4 people: Two at the double bed (2X1.40 m) and another two at the brand new convertible couch/bed (183X1.20).
Also, there is a convertible bed upon request!
Do mind that after the final makover the sleeping area can now be separeted from the rest of the Loft using a new set of thick courtines!
(New airbnb verified photos are coming soon!!)
Loft's best feature is of course the ample top floor balcony from where you can enjoy a great overview of the Sea, Aegina island and Peloponnesus!
As a guest you will be 100% independent as the Loft has a completetly private entrance and you will have your own set of keys!
Parking next to the premise is free and easy to find!
Alimos, is considered one of the best places to live in Athens because of its proximity to the coast, its good transportation connection with the city center and its safe and quiet environment.10 mins walk from the Loft you will find the sea where you have access to some of the most popular public as well as private beaches (2 public and 2 private) in Athens. There, you can also find popular beach bars, coffebars, beer places, the Marina and a public park.
(From there, 10 mins away with the Tram, you will find the "Floisvos Recreation Area" another beautiful area with a Marina, bars, restaurants, parks, playgrounds and even a summer open-air cinema!)
The neighbourhood is very quite and safe, you actually hear more birds' sounds than cars' sounds! At the same time, we're located only 5-10 mins walk away from 3 main streets/avenues where you can find everything that you might need!
3 major grocery stores are within 5 to15 mins walk from the Loft and there are also several "souvlaki places" with tasty and well priced food very near by.
Also, there are 5 hype coffe bars 5-10 mins away..
2 Bakeries, 2 convenient stores, 2 Banks, a Pharmacy and a Shopping Mall are less than 10 mins walking away!
If you like sports as we do you may want to visit the local track and field stadium that's 5 mins running far!
5 mins walk towards two different directions you have access to two bus lines that go straight to the Metro (in 20 mins) from where you can reach the City Center and Akropolis in 12 mins.
Alternatively you may reach the sea (ten mins walk) where you have access to various bus lines that go to the city center, the port, the airport and of course the rest of the coast line.
It takes 20 stops and 34 mins to reach the city center and the tram stop is by the sea, 10 mins walk from the Loft.

1) Take bus X96 that will drop you off at a bus stop 15 mins walk from the Loft after an easy 50 mins ride. Tickets cost 5€ (half price if you're a student).

LET'S SUM IT ALL UP!
This is an excellent place to stay if you want an affordable, beautiful, relaxing and quite Loft waiting for you after a long day visiting around Athens and also provide you with really close proximity to the sea and the chance to spend your nights away from the busy and noisy city center!
