In a short description i will try to explain as much as i can about my apartment in the center of Volos, hopefully you will feel like at your own place. It is on the second floor of a fifth floor building, has a lift and was built in 2009.
The area called "Analipsi", is named after the christian church one block away from the house. It is a peacefull, safe area, with new buldings, in the heart of Volos. Only a few minutes walk to the center of Volos and the coast with the "Tsipouradika" typical Volos tavernas, with sea food and tsipouro.
You can easily drive to the villages of Pelion in just 40 minutes. You can also visit Thessaloniki the subcapital of Greece in just 2 hours. Of course the sporades complex of islands Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonisos is reachable by boats. Trikeri island is 40 minutes away.
Most of the beaches in the Pagasitic gulf are of the most beautiful in Greece combined with the nature.
When it comes to my apartment, it is fully furnished with modern furniture, everything is brand new. A double bed, a couch turning into a bed and a camp bed if needed. Also a baby cot could be provided.
The kitchen is fully equipped with oven,hot plate and a fridge with freezer.Dishes and cups,pans and pots are also in your disposal and everything you need to cook whatever you wish.There is also a toaster, a vacuum cleaner, iron, plasma 42inches tv and a hair dryer. Bed linen and towels are provided.
BOOK NOW, and you will have the most amazing time.
Ok what is the important when you visit somewhere? Location! Location because you want to be far from things and always have to use public transport. Location cause you want to be in a safe place. Well Lina's flat is perfectly placed, 10 mins walk from the center 10 mins walk from the airport bus. 2 mins walk from the Olympic stadium and 2 mins from the Zeus temple.
The flat had all that is required in the kitchen and also some TV channels in English for those nights you have no more legs(Athens is very hilly) Lina, was waiting for us on time, with a smile, made us very welcome and explained things in perfect English. Five stars!
This flat is well situated, 2 minutes walking from the metro station Dafni (red line, 10 minutes away from the center of Athens). There are many shops, restaurant and coffee around and also a supermarket.
As for the flat, it is very nicely decorated with lot of taste. The pictures are pretty much accurate, exception made of the bathroom which is actually smaller than expected but it was ok though. The flat is at the last floor of the building, therefore the terrace provides you with a very nice view on the lycabetus mount.
The building is pretty new, the elevator also.
The flat being quite close to a main street, it may seem noisy when windows are opened.
The main issue I have about my stay was that I was surprised to find out adhesive scotch around most of the drawers and cupboards of the flat. In the kitchen, the cutlery, the plates and glasses were laying on the work plan outside the cupboards. In the bedroom, clothes couldn't be hung because no closet was open and empty. That was the main issue in my stay because otherwise everything was quite perfect with the flat. The contact with the host was warm and efficient, we even had a nice surprise of getting biscuits and a home made cake during the stay.
I would warmly recommend this place.

The apartment was great. A well equiped new kitchen, a good bed, a washingmachine, a big balcony, a very nice view (6th floor) and always a hot shower. There are nice details in the apartment, like old wooden doors and carpets. Lina and ms. Panagoti are very friendly and helpfull. The apartment is near Dafni metrostation. By metro you can reach in 4-5 stops the centre of Athens and you are at Monasteraki/Plaka, Acropolis, Acropolis-museum, Roman Agora, Syntagma, Omonia en National Museum.
The on the website mentioned bus X97 to the airport didn't operate when I was there. That's no problem because there are other possible connections between the apartment and the airport (metro/train, metro/bus, taxi or transfer arranged by Lina).
A great place to stay!
The flat is very well located. Lina is very kind and very helpful. Closed too the flat you have a small shop to buy everything, where the guy speak well english! Also a good bakery! In the flat, you have everything you need. Thank you so much Lina!
Fantastic location!!! Close to public transport and all of the main neighborhoods and sights. Very nice apartment and Lina and Fanis were amazing. Always available and quick to communicate. They no longer have the washer but there is wifi! Good trade off :) just be careful because we accidentally used ours up too quickly by video chatting. Other than that, only complaint was that the neighbors threw a party one of the nights and it was SO loud it seemed they were actually in the apartment with us and they partied until 5:30 AM. Nothing that was in the control of Lina though and we still wouldn't have changed where we stayed! Thank you so much!
A nice apartment, old but clean and well preserved, in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, close to the main attraction of Athens but not in the touristic center. Lina and Fanis were kind and helpful and the overall experience was positive. The only disadvantage is that the bed is more a 1.5 then a double bed.
Great place and a great host!! Lina was very helpful, easily reachable at anytime and willing to help out with any issues.
Lina was very kind and helpful!!
The house was in perfect state and we've really enjoyed our stay in Mykonos.
We really recommend Lina's villa as it is quiet, not far away from everything and the view is amazing!!
