Description

The space

Located in Glyfada, the closest beach town to Athens, the 120 square meters (1,291 sq. feet) apartment is within a 25 minute metro ride from the Parthenon and a mere 5 minute walk to the beach. It caters to travelers eager to experience classical Athens and its monuments - without the hustling and busting of a downtown stay – while enjoying a morning or late afternoon dip in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.

The house was built by my grandfather in the 1950s, and has undergone since two thorough renovations. It offers all 21st century amenities and its craftsmanship and details exuberate class in an unassuming manner. Two separate bedrooms, a spacious living area with an open plan kitchen, two bathrooms, a front porch and a shared backyard orchard can easily accommodate four people or even five in some cases. A ping pong table and a BBQ can make a lazy day at the house quite eventful.

And yet, it shall be a serious omission to overlook the shopping offerings of Glyfada. There are choices for all purses, from designer stores to middle of the road mom & pop stores which make a shopping trip to downtown Athens redundant.

For the more adventurous the numerous beach towns to the South of Glyfada can serve as a one day excursion, and thus making the pilgrimage to the Temple of Poseidon, located in the southernmost tip of Attica a 30 minute drive, an unforgettable experience.

Having dinner at a monastery dining table surrounded by the citrus backyard orchard, and shaded by grapevines is the perfect ending of a long day spent by the sea or visiting the Acropolis. I would be more than eager to host you at my family home and make sure you will have a memorable stay.

At an extra cost I can arrange and organize:
Pick-up and drop off from and to the Athens airport
Culinary Services
Drive to nearby beaches and lakes
Diving Lessons
Tours of Athens by real experts

We really enjoyed our stay. The location is a 3 mins walk to the main street where you can find resturants, cafes and do your shopping. The apartement is clean, spacious and you can enjoy your coffee or a meal at the patio with lots of trees around you. There is good wifi. The kitchen is big and has everything you need. The hosts were nice and friendly, the helped us with a taxi from and to the airport and we found some patisseries at the kitchen on our arrival, they even emailed us with a guide to Glyfada and Athens. Definitly recommended.

An Easy drive from Athens Airport we arrived early. Eric greeted us and showed us around the place and was a wealth of information. Eric was even kind enough to get us some spanakopita and a few different breads. the Unit is well stoked with whatever you need for cooking. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer. Parking was easy and walking to the center of town was 2 blocks. Plenty of restaurants and places to have coffee. We would not hesitate to come back and stay. Thank you for all that you did for us and for all the pre arrival information you sent it made life just that much easier.

Constantine was very polite and respectful towards all of us. Upon arrival, he had bought some delicious brioche, bread and other pastries to welcome us. He was very respectful of our privacy but also let us know he was available to assist with anything. The neighbourhood of Glifada was perfect for our family as we were within walking distance to the beach. The area is really nice and social with many eateries and great shopping. I would definitely stay here again. The apartment itself was very spacious for our family and had all the comforts of home. Thank you very much to Constantine!!!!!
