The Neighborhood

Palaio Phaliro, probably is the most beautiful area of Athens and you have the opportunity to discover the real city of Athens and not just the typical touristic areas. The house is next to the city center, ideally situated between Athens historical center and Piraeus port. Our area is a very popular choice for Athenians for swimming, walking and dinning. House is 12 minutes walk from the beach, the magnificent seaside walk of P.Faliro and the newly build marina of Flisvos where you can choose among, our unique open air cinema, coffee shops, bars and restaurants, while enjoying beautiful sunset over Castella Hill (see photos)
As our area is next to the sea, it is a little bit cooler compared to the center of Athens, during the summer and away from demonstrations and traffic jams. Our neighborhood is quiet and absolutely safe with no parking problem in case you rent a car.
Furthermore, within 2 minutes walk from the house you can choose from a vast variety of restaurants, supermarkets, bakery and pharmacy e.t.c. . For sailing lovers, you are just 3 km away from the 2 Athens main marinas, where you can start your trip to Aegean Sea.

    August 2013
  • We had a great stay at this apartment! It's in a terrific neighborhood, quiet, yet within a couple blocks of lots of shops, cafes, bakeries, and restaurants. It's a 10 minute walk to the waterfront, which on a Saturday evening was full of families strolling along the promenade, people swimming, and a beautiful sunset that rivaled the one we had seen on Santorini the previous night. The apartment has plenty of room for 4 in 2 bedrooms, efficient, quiet a/c, and everything we needed to prepare an easy meal. Helena was super quick to respond and I had this last-minute booking all wrapped up within an hour or 2. Owner Marietta met us at the port, and was really nice and helpful getting us settled. We hope to stay there again when we return to Athens.

    July 2013
  • Very nice apartment that was clean and spacious. And the apartment had very good facilities. It´s about 800 meters to the seafront and the tram station. A quick nice walk! The area is very nice with lots of restaurants and shops.
    Helena is a very professional host and was very helpful! We were picked up at the airport. No problem even tough we were an hour late.

    June 2013
  • Helena and Vassilis' apartment was great! We wanted a quiet place further away from the busy city centre, and this place was just what we were looking for, especially since it was so close to the beach. We had fun exploring the quiet neighbourhood by foot, and were surprised to find quite a lot of shops/supermarkets around the area. The apartment itself was very spacious, clean, and felt very homely. We would definitely come back here again next time! :)
