The historic district of Mets lies to the east of the Acropolis, opposite the Zappeion Gardens, just south of the Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896. Unique thanks to its many delightful old Athenian houses dating from the 19th century, Mets is renowned for its quiet pedestrian streets and the many gardens and parks surrounding it. Right in the heart of Athens, this quiet and extremely safe residential district is home to many Greek artists, actors and writers.
Mets is a taste of old Athens, where streets are shaded by flowering trees, lined with neoclassical houses with tiled roofs and charming courtyards, and filled with the scent of jasmine and bougainvillea. It's one of the most beautiful neighborhoods to explore in the city, with excellent dining and nightlife options, from trendy bars with stunning views to the Acropolis to one of Europe’s finest jazz clubs.

We had a very good experience when taking Tina's house. The house is in the centre of Athens. Easy access to tourist attractions and walks around the historic areas. Metro and other public transport is within a short walking distance.
Tina was able to offer us her house on a very short notice (less than 12 hours.) She responded to emails very quickly and found her very accommodating.
The house is very comfortable, there is the possibility to cook. There is wifi in the house.
Strongly recommend the place.
Tina is a wonderful host and the apartment was ideal for us as a couple with two children, we took the master bedroom and the children slept on sofa beds. The outdoor courtyard space was a lovely bonus and the apartment is ideally situated in easy walking distance (15 mins) of central Athens with its fabulous sights and wonderful restaurants. Tina's comprehensive guide helped with restaurant recommendations, all of those we tried proved excellent. We also recommend Tina's food tour, we re-visited several of the artisan producers we visited with her during our week long stay to make further purchases. The arranged airport transfer was great- easy and hassle free plus, for four of us, cheaper than the alternatives. The same trusted driver also arranged for a trip to Delphi and Sounio to see the Temple of Poseiden both of which were truly wonderful experiences. All in all, a wonderful week with a wonderful host- thoroughly recommended.
We had a great stay! When you meet people like Tina and Vassilis you experience more than just the place you visit!
The appartment is very good located and quiet. You can enjoy every moment there. All was perfect!
I can highly recommend visiting this place!
Tina, thanks for everything!
We had a great stay in Athens and in Tina's apartment. From the very beginning of our contact, she was very helpful and charming. The pick up service from and to the Airport was perfectly organized by Tina's connection. Her mother in law who greet us was very kind too and gave us some important recommendations.
The house is clean, romantic and has a good heating system. So, no worries about winter travels. It is greatly located, within walking distance of all attractions.
Thank you very, very much Tina.
Unfortunately when I arrived in Athens I was sick. I got out to see the sights a few hours every day. I spent much of my time in the apartment sleeping and resting. I was very grateful that it was such a cozy apartment in a quiet neighborhood. When Tina found out I was not feeling well she offered to go grocery shopping for me and she offered to go out and get any medications I may need. Although my vacation wasn't what I had hoped it would be the apartment filled my needs perfectly and knowing that Tina was there and willing to help was a big comfort. I hope to return to Athens and when I do I will absolutely stay with Tina.
We stayed at Tina's apartment in late January. We found Tina extremely helpful and friendly, full of tips and advice. The apartment was clean and tidy with all the comforts of home with more than enough room for the two of us. It is in a really good location as it was easy to walk to all the shops and attractions. We had dinner at a couple of local restaurants with delicious Greek food. We went on one of Tina's alternative Athens food tours. What an experience!! Would totally recommend it to anyone wanting to experience authentic Greek food and culture. Thank you for the wonderful stay Tina, we will be sure to stay with you if we are ever back in Athens.
Top! Perfect host. Very quiet place in the heart of Athens. I would recommend it to everyone.
Tina's place is greatly located and is a nice and quiet place to stay in with everything you could need; we had a wonderful stay there! And for those who want to go there in winter it's also perfect : there is a good heating system so no worries about the outside temperature!
Tina is a wonderful host, and had plenty of kind thoughts for us - we had marvelous greek christmas cakes waiting for us at our arrival! She has helped us a lot all our trip long by providing very helpful information to organize ou trip in Athenes and around and advising us on nice place to eat according to our preferences (even for the New Years Eve dinner).
Tanks very much Tina!
What a wonderful apartment and also a wonderful host. Tina helped us with every detail and answered every question we had on the apartment and the area.
The apartment is fully equipped for anything you could possibly need. I stayed with my husband and 2 children - there was plenty of room for 4.
the apartment is situated in a perfect quiet location - only 10-15 mins walk from all the main sights.
Tina also arranged a private transfer to and from the airport which we would highly recommend.
Also we would definately recomment Tina's food tour around the city - it helped us get to know the area and experience the sights, sounds and smells of Athens. We revisited many of the shops and cafes that she showed us.
Tina also helped me to find a birthday cake for my son as it was his birthday during our stay.
A wonderful visit from start to finish - thank you Tina
Great place and ideal location!
