We flew into Greece in the evening and collected our car , because we had GPS , driving from the airport to the apartment didn't take long ( about 40 mins ) parking at the apartment is easy as there is a private off road parking area
The hospitality of Panos was exceptional, with responses to communication by text being very quick if anything was needed. Towels were supplied and we were very thankful for the tea/coffee and biscuits , Panos had also kindly stocked the fridge with basics , which was great as we arrived late in the evening. We were welcomed and made to feel very much at home. Local Information was shared , including grocery shopping and nice places to eat , along with a large local map . Panos's mum was also both friendly and helpful .
The apartment was spotless and is as the pictures show, roomy light and airy. The balconies front and back are good for reading , sunbathing, yoga etc. The views of the mountains and sea are beautiful.
The internet connection on LAN and wireless is very good. If you desire to work there's a comfortable chair and desk.
Thank you Panos for the most memorable and enjoyable stay in your lovely apartment . We look forward to returning .
Panos could not have been more helpful. He ensured we knew how to find the apartment including collecting us from the tram. He helped with any questions we had and his mother was also very welcoming and helpful.
We were in Athens for a wedding nearby and this apartment was well placed for access to the venues we needed to attend. Taxis were inexpensive and Panos provided details with the information he leaves for guests.
The apartment is spotless and very comfortable. It is in a very quiet and safe area. The balcony at the back of the apartment is perfect for breakfast and sitting outdoors. There are views to the water.
Access to the tourist atttractions of Athena was a bus and metro journey away. All up this took less than an hour. You can also catch a bus and the tram.
I would recommend this apartment if you were wanting to be close to the beaches or needed to be located in this area for your stay in Athens.
Panos is a very friendly and helpful guest. The house is well located and with all the required amenities, with superb views of the sea. I would definitely recommend and repeat the experience.
Panos was the most welcoming host we have ever encountered, His response to my quires before arriving were answered quickly and with great knowledge. He helped us immensely with maps and the public transportation system and where to find shops and restaurants within the local area.
He guided from the airport via the X96 (bus) and met us in early hours of the morning at the bus stop to escort us to the apartment.
Both Panos and his mother were delightful, The preparation he took to insure the apartment was safe for our toddler was fantastic. Both my husband and I are most grateful for this.
The apartment itself was beautiful, It came fully equipped with everything we needed or should need during our 9 day stay there.
The local area was great, lots of shops near by within walking distance and two very close bus stops should you need to use it.
The local park was good for the toddler. Although we did spend most days checking out the beaches, which there are a wide verity of along the T3 & T5 tram route.
We opted for the paid beach in the area of Alimos. It provided clean water, lounges, umbrellas, music and toilets .
We used the cities buses, trams and metro to get to and from the city an opted to buy a one week ticket for 14 Euros.
Over all our stay with Panos was one of the best and we will remember our experience there for a long time to come.
You cannot ask for a better HOST than Panos. I emphasize HOST because he took extra care to make sure that every aspect of our stay was taken care of. He picked us up from the bus stop, he provided us with a prepaid cellphone to make local calls on (free of charge!), he left power adapters for us, had coffee/tea/snacks set up for us, and just about everything else you could ask for. On top of it all, the guy is an absolute sweetheart.
The apartment itself was gorgeous. There were many balconies with fantastic views of Glyfada and the bedroom, living room, and dining room were very spacious. The kitchen was well equipped. Towels, blankets, etc were all clean and provided for us. I stayed their with my girlfriend so we shared the bed, but one could easily sleep on one of the couches in the living room if you're half of a non-romantic duo.
Из более, чем 20-ти посещенных стран, на сегодняшний день - апартаменты Паноса - лучшее место, где доводилось останавливаться на отдых!
Расположение - тихая и уютная улочка Глифады, спокойный и респектабельный район с цветущими садами. Пару минут до супермаркетов, ресторанов, кафе, салонов красоты и булочных. Минут 20 пешком до набережной. На такси - 3-4 евро и 5-7 минут до отличных песочных пляжей.
Сам пентхаус выглядит даже лучше, чем на фотографиях.
Все новое, идеально чистое вплоть до деталей - белоснежные полотенца, несколько чистых комплектов постельного белья, сверкающая посуда, хорошая и качественная мебель, кофеварка, посудомойка, плита и микроволновка.
Панорамные окна от пола до потолка в каждой комнате с сетками от москитов.
Схема квартиры устроена довольно удачно - просторная гостиная/столовая, небольшая кухня, спальня с балконом с видом на море, 2 большие террасы с креслами и столиками. С одной открывается вид на море, с другой - на горы.
Панос - очень гостеприимный и радушный хозяин! Специально для приезжающих после самолета, гостей, купил упаковку ветчины, сыр, хлеб и сливки для кофе. На полке - коробки с печеньем, кофе и несколько сортов чая.
Распечатал карты с указанием, как добраться до магазинов, пляжей и т.д.
Дал мобильный телефон с местной симкой.
Всегда очень оперативно отвечал и помогал.
Надеюсь, что в следующую поездку повезет вновь остановиться у Паноса.
Спасибо большое за отзывчивость и радушие!
Panos came and looked for me after very helpful info for the directions on how to get to Glyfada. Place was very clean with good views of the sea. Panos was a kind and gracious host.
