About This Listing
You will find our private studio in the north suburbs of Athens at Halandri area.
The space is newly renovated and it offers a pleasant and quiet stay, alternative to the city down town center. Ideal to enjoy a restful and cool afternoon in the suburbs, after a hot and busy day of sightseeing and visiting the museums of Acropolis and Cycladic Art in the center of the Athens city.
It is an open plan apartment of 40cm2, on the third floor of a block of flats and it has a peaceful balcony with a view at the huge pine trees that are growing around the area.
The decor is minimal in order to offer an ideal rest for the senses after a busy day in the city center.There is one japanese style double bed with a futon mattress and linen that are provided and a wardrobe with plenty of shelves and drawers to store your belongings. The floor of the main space is made of soft cork, good for doing your morning yoga or stretching exercises (as there is a lot of room for that).There is also a washing machine and a drying frame to line up your laundry.The shower room is fully tiled with a bathmat and set of towels available and there is also a private WC.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, a refrigerator, a coffee maker, an oven and all the crockery needed to prepare yourself a full meal. There is also a small cork table and two chairs for dining but in the summer months you can use also the table at the balcony for that.

The local area is very safe .You can find a pharmacy, a grocery, an organic food market, an italian restaurant and a greek grill house just around the corner and also a bank and a post office if you walk a 5 minutes distance. And if you walk even further for 20 more minutes you can visit the lively area of Chalandri with nice stores for shopping in the morning and a variety of greek tavernas and fashionable bars and cafes. to eat or drink a cocktail in the evening (look also at the map for my suggestions)
The apartment is situated 12 minutes walk from Holargos metro station, which is a very convenient and strategic spot because it is 8 stops away from the Airport, 6 stops away from Syntagma station and 7 stops from Acropolis station and also the Olympic Stadium is a 10 minutes-drive (4.5km). For your transportation you can use as well, bus 402,404. The bus stop is only 3 minutes walk from the apartment.

We couldn't have asked for more about Martha and her apartment. The apartment is very clean and confortable, very well placed, in a very pleasant and quiet neighborhood. All facilities are close and we can have the metro to go to the main atractions of Athens or to the airport in a few steps.
Martha replies very quickly and made all for us to have a pleasant stay. She left us some basics for breakfast, some fruits and soft drinks and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.
We would definitely come back!
Martha is a very happy and sweet young mother and a very hospitable host! She definitely makes you feel like "home". Her apartment is exactly what you see in the pictures, no hidden surprises, only adds on like the lovely mature trees and garden that surrounding the building, the spacious balcony, the calmness and the quietness of the place -although very close to main road and all the amenities nearby. The surrounding area has everything a visitor or a resident needs and with the metro you are in downtown Athens in 10 minutes. The apartment itself is open plan, very well organised, clean and tidy and has all you need to make you wanna come back soon again!
It is highly recommended :-)
Martha and her husband were very warm and attentive in every respect. They always made sure we don't lack anything and provided guidance and tips while never being instrusive or the like.
We very much enjoyed staying in this clean and modern, well-equipped and newly renovated apartment. We found the short distance to the Metró quite convenient as you can travel from Holargós (name of the station) to basically every popular spot in Athens in a trice.
I can definitely recommend this apartment and also meeting Martha as she is such a pleasant person :)
Η Μάρθα είναι ένας υπέροχος άνθρωπος ,
πολύ ευγενική και εξυπηρετική ότι χρειαστήκαμε είχαμε άμεση ανταπόκριση , ήταν πολύ ελαστική όσο αφορά για το check-in και check-out που μας ευχαρίστησε ιδιαίτερα αυτό ,
μας είχε όλα τα απαραίτητα για ένα πρωινό ώστε να μη τρέχουμε την άλλη μέρα σε ένα soupermarket ,
το διαμέρισμα είναι πανέμορφο και πολύ καθαρό όπως ακριβώς φαίνεται και στις φωτογραφίες ,
επίσης έχει μία πολύ ωραία και άνετη βεράντα όπου την τίμησε ιδιαίτερα ο άντρας μου που είναι καπνιστής :) ,
η περιοχή είναι πολύ καλή και επικρατή ηρεμία ,
αυτό ακριβώς που θέλαμε....
Σε ευχαριστούμε πάρα πολύ Μάρθα και να είσαι σίγουρη πως την επόμενη φορά που θα έρθουμε θα σε τιμήσουμε ιδιαίτερα.....
