** For a double room please have a look in our other listing. **
We are located in the south suburbs of Athens, less than 5 minutes walk from the underground station, providing easy access to the city centre within 12 minutes.
We offer a very comfortable and homely twin/single (air-conditioned) room in a charming Bed & Breakfast in the southern suburbs of Athens. The room is accessible through the main living area of the B&B. It has two single beds and can accommodate 1 or 2 people. The room has access to a little private balcony where our guests can relax during the evenings throughout the summer months. It also has access to a shared bathroom which is located right next to the room. While the bathroom is shared it is almost exclusively used by the guests of the twin room since all other rooms in the property have private en-suit shower rooms. The room is also connected to the rest of the house and such facilities as the kitchen, dining room and living room with TV, DVD player and fireplace (for the chillier days) which our guests are welcome to use.
Our garden is perfect for quality time in the sun or under the shade of our citrus trees, perhaps relaxing in the hammock with one of our complimentary iced teas or coffees. There are also BBQ facilities available to use if you wish. Along with the many trees and flowers in the garden we have also grown one of the first urban farms in Athens!
Furthermore, we are close to beautiful Athens coast (2-3 km) which is ideal for walks and bicycle-rides. A number of cafes, restaurants and bars can be found within a short 10 minute walk (0.5 km). We are also in close proximity (2-3 km) to:
* numerous beautiful beaches
* the Athens Golf Club
* the Go-Kart Centre
* the Agios Kosmas Olympic Complex
* Glyfada; the stylish shopping & entertainment centre of the south suburbs of Athens
A generous and delicious continental breakfast can be provided upon request (4 Euros per-person), and on warm days can be enjoyed out in the garden. Guests can also enjoy our organic home-grown and home-cooked produce for dinner at a cost of 10 Euros per-person which includes our organic, home-made wine. The meals vary depending on the season but we guarantee that they will always be healthy, plentiful and delicious.
Our Bed & Breakfast is ideal for people who want to enjoy both the historic centre of Athens along with the lesser known charms of the surrounding areas. We are happy to provide advice on and assistance with the organisation of fantastic day-trips to numerous historic, cultural and natural attractions in the surrounding areas of Athens (including nearby islands).
We always enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and being introduced to their culture. As an exchange, we hope to provide a fantastic stay in Athens for all of our guests with good-old style Greek hospitality.
Thank you for your interest. We are looking forward to hopefully meeting you sometime soon.
Stelios and Maika
Free private parking available.
Maika is a keen home-cook who likes to blend traditional Greek cooking with a modern twist. The seasonal produce from our veggie garden encourages her cooking experimentation with outstanding results. Guests in our B&B may get to enjoy complementary homemade treats such as our ice-cold organic lemonade, our bergamot liqueur, our seasonal jams, fruit and vegetable salads. It all depends on what’s been cooked and the vibe of the day!
Besides any complementary treat there is the option to enjoy a generous and delicious breakfast and dinner while staying with us.
Breakfast with us (4 Euros per-person):
Our guests have the ability to have a hearty breakfast under the shade of the trees in our beautiful back garden. Our breakfast includes:
* Tea or Coffee
* Fresh sour-dough bread from our local baker (should try his desserts too)
* A selection of home-made jams/marmalades/honeys etc.
* Cereal/Muesli with milk
* An egg
* A cheese & ham toastie
* Fruit juice
Dinner with us (10 Euros per-person).
In the evening Maika lights up the garden with little candle lanterns making it the perfect spot to enjoy a warm Greek summer evening. Guests can have dinner on a private candle-lit table or join us on a larger table for some greet-style feasting! Our dinner includes:
* A selection of appetisers
* A main meal
* Salad and bread accompanying the main meal
* Plenty of our home-made organic wine
Many of the ingredients are sourced from our veggie patch, or through the produce of family and friends. As a result, the meals tend to be very seasonal. An example summer dinner would include:
* Cheese pasties, leek and bacon pasties and stuffed vine leaves (dolmades)
* Greek salad and sour-dough bread
* Chilled white wine
* Semolina halva with Greek-yogurt cream
If you decide to try out our breakfast or dinner all we ask is to tell us a day in advance.
I had a pleasant stay at Stelios and Maika everything was perfect: my room and private bathroom during the stay, the delicious food cooked by Maika, the beautiful garden and the compagny of their lovely cats :) do not hesitate to ask for some information or other things they will help you with pleasure :)
Au revoir ! and take care :)
I had a wonderful overnight stay with Stelios and Maika. They have a beautiful garden and they couldn't have been kinder hosts - and their place is only half an hour from the airport so it is perfect for people wanting connecting or early morning flights.
If you want to experience the true essence of the spirit of Greece then Stelios and Maika are your perfect hosts. They invite you into their home, and open up their hearts to you. Maika prepares amazing meals and Stelios makes wonderful wine, all of which tantalizes all of your senses. They will share with you as much as you want to learn about Greece - history, culture and language as well as all the practicals you need to know to get around Athens. Their home is in the perfect location for easy access to everything. They pour their love into making your stay unforgettable.
Stelios and Maika, THANK YOU for such a beautiful experience, one that I will treasure forever.
Maika and Stelios were warm and wonderful. The house and property were beautiful. They went way above and beyond and made such a fuss over me! I also took advantage of the meals and was served WAY more food than I could eat, home-made wine and sweets! You will not get such a nice meal for the price in Athens.
my stay was absolutely the best.....fantastic hosts...fantastic food....fantastic wine...fabulous hosts...just loved my stay and will stay with them again ...it was home from home...great location and easy to get to Athens and the coast...............look forward to my next visit
Fantastic clean, modern, private space. Best airbnb experience yet.
Close to small shops & area with restaurants etc in evening.
Once you get the hang of the bus/metro/tram system it becomes easier to get around. (But it's a little complicated a first.)
Only need one trip into the city of athens for the day & therefor the location is fantastic being slightly out of the city & closer to the coast.
On arrival stelios picked me up from the bus stop & they invited me to the beach, which I loved! Always making me fresh lemonade, iced coffee etc when hanging around the backyard. A really lovely place & people to stay with. A truly unique and special experience!
Все было замечательно! Хозяева очень интеллигентные, отзывчивые и внимательные. Они меня встретили и потом до автобуса в аэропорт довезли. Море там недалеко. Очень приятный садик. И хотя я очень плохо знаю английский язык, благодаря доброжелательности Майки и Stelios чувствовала себя уютно. Время провела чудесно. Все удобно и красиво.
A little piece of heaven in athens!!!!
I would highly recomend you to stay with Antonis and Claire they are amazing hosts. The house is beautiful and has a very big garden which was so nice to sit out there in the day and night. Especially at night with the candles on and little lanterns everywhere. It felt like you were not near a big city. The room was great with private bathroom and big.
You would never go hungry here claire and antonis were always offering me food and drinks.
Staying here was better than staying at a 5 star hotel, you do not get the personal service you do here.
The house is very close to the centre of athens and you can be at the beacj in 15 minutes if you take the bus.
Thanksssss very much Claire and Antonis for making my stay so special and if i ever need somewhere again i will come back to you
