The house is ideally situated in the upmarket Glyfada area near Athens south Beaches. The villa is located in beautiful Glyfada, an amazing green, demonstration free and safe area next to the beach and still less than 20 min by car from Athens city center. Within 3 minutes walking distance you will find 24 hour Supermarkets, Bakery, Souvlaki tavernas, bus-stops, Banks, Pharmacy, etc.
Glyfada , probably one of the nicest areas in Athens having the best advantage of all areas: It has a great center full where you can choose among, cinema, coffee shops, bars and restaurants and all that just a breath away from the beach. This ways you will get the chance to discover the real city of Athens and not just the typical touristic areas. During summer time the coast line of Glyfada, Voula & Vouliagmeni areas are very popular choice for swimming, walking and dinning.
Located close to the sea we are enjoying the fresh sea breeze in the summer time compared to the more warm center but most important away from any traffic jams and all the demonstrations that take place in the center of Athens.

GETTING TO ATHENS CENTER
There is a Bus stop around the corner at Gounari Street from there it takes 15-20 minutes by bus to Acropolis, Plaka or the center of Athens. You can also use the tram, which is in Glyfada to go to Athens center or Piraeus Port, more easy and frequent but rather slow, it takes 30-40 minutes to reach the same places. Nonetheless the advantage is that during the weekends it operates 24 hours. Taxi for center takes 10-20 minutes depending on traffic and costs around 12 euros.
You can reach Piraeus by Taxi or Tram from Glyfada or Bus and takes around 20 minutes.

Please do not smoke in the house, nor light candles or other flammable objects. There is no entering the house without drying off from the pool also it is best to have a shower too before entering the pool and when you come out of it.The house is serviced, so there is a gardener and a pool maintenance person coming in. Please do not dispose any toilet paper in the toilet bowls.
Very comfortable stay. Very modern and beautiful house, well maintained!
Shops round the corner and taxis easily available for town and beaches near by. The swimming in the house was an amazing addition.
We have had a great time at this place! A good neighbourhood and the house was nice and clean, exact as the photo's show. We were here with 2 kids and Ellen gave us some nice things for the swimmingpool for the kids.
Ellen is a wonderfull host, she always wants to help you and give you advice.
Busstation nearby, so it's easy to get to the center of Athens. Supermarket etc. on walking distance. Balux café is a nice place to stay at the beach, only 30 minutes walk, treu the center of Glyfada, with kids.
Elle's flat looks exactly like the pictures suggest and all the arrangements worked perfectly. We rent a car at the airport so I am not sure how convenient the area is by public transportation but there are plenty of taxis around. The local area (Glyfada) is about a 25-30 minute walk away, but it´s better to go by car or by taxis since the parking situation in Glyfada is a mess. There are plenty of shops (supermarket, bakery) near by. We didn´t had all the 3 floors or breakfast like other guests, so I can´t comment on this. Overall a nice stay.
Had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. Great breakfast from our very kind host. Definitely recommended.
Elle's flat is beautiful! It looks exactly like the pictures suggest - large, airy, luxurious and a pool to cool off in after a day sightseeing. We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
We got taxis in and out of Athens as that seemed the easiest way to get around, and even in traffic when it was busy it took no longer than 30 mins - mainly about 15-20 mins. The local area (Gylfada) is about a 20 minute walk away, but again taxis are cheap and easy to book from the house. Elle was always on hand for any queries and one of the mornings we had her lovely breakfast. A great place to stay.
The flat is really nice , very big and so clean.
It"s hard to leave it. My kids did not want to move. Internet is very fast .
Elle was a fantastic host, always available to help, she advises us very nice place to visit.
there s a private beach 5mn from the flat which is very nice ( better than islands beachs we made)
A great place to stay in Athens
5 stars for this Flat
If you are looking to stay in a luxury apartment at a real affordable price ,close to many very popular bars ,cafes and restaurants of Gylfada ,this your place.Your own pool ! Superb.
It is 25 minute walk downhill into town( zero problems for us) in fact we enjoyed it,or a €5 euro taxi.
Ellen is a lovely host,gave us all the information we needed and we never saw her again,although we knew she was only a mobile call away.
Accepting that it is in a very quiet ,suburban location,I would reccomend Ellen's place.
Thxs Elle for allowing us to chill at the end of our long journey.
Oh yes ,easy peasy for the airport too,we took the x96 regular bus from town for €5 each or take a Cab € 30.
