About this listing
My apartment is now ready to offer you a pleasant stay in the lovely city of Athens.
It's also ideal for short or long business trips because of its fast internet connection and the fact that lots of companies are located in the area.
The apartment is in Chalandri area, a suburb in Northern Athens, around 12 km from the centre, one of the busiest and most cool areas now in Athens. Some of the best restaurants and bars are located here, lots of clothing shops, it's bikers friendly, safe, pretty and still keeps the neighborhood feeling.
The area is serviced by many metro stations and busses. There are 2 metro stations near the apartment, both around 10 to 15 minutes walk, connecting the area to the central Athens, airport etc. You can easily use the metro from and to the airport without changing train and I will be glad to pick you up from the station with my car. There are also many bus lines, bus stops is around 3-5 minutes walk, which can transport you also to the central Athens or other areas.
However don't forget that this area is the place to be regarding nightlife (restaurants, bars, cinema) so you don't really need to move, as everything is very close to the flat, in short walking distance. Another plus is that is much more safe and clean than the center.
It’s a pretty, extremely sunny and light apartment in a classic block of flats from 1982. Wooden floor in the bedrooms, high ceiling and a large living room are some of its characteristics. There is some basic electronic equipment like fridge, a new clothes’ washing machine, oven and kitchen, hair dryer, and the fastest WiFi internet connection you can find in Greece!
You can always have warm water within five minutes. Unfortunately there is no autonomous heating system, but you won’t need extra warmth apart from 4-5 days per year that Athens has really cold.
The apartment can accommodate 2 to 3 people. There is a medium double bed in the first bedroom and a sofa which becomes a bed for the extra third, in the second bedroom. There is a large living room with a huge couch where you can enjoy your morning coffee and newspaper and you might find it pleasant to enjoy a nap! Also you can help yourself working at a desk with white wall board on side. Please note that the flat doesn’t have a TV ideologically.
Finally, you can find everything you might need like bed linen, plates, cooking equipment, towels, bathroom equipment. All of them are of good quality.
Once you are enjoying my comfortable apartment I will be staying very close so whatever you might need I will able to meet you in order to resolve it.
Looking forward to meeting you personally and help you find out what makes my city an awesome place to visit.
Note: There is parking space for 1 small to medium car.

Eleni was an extremely kind hostess: she picked me up at the Metro station, even if I had a flight delay, and drive me with her car to her flat.
This is very nice and quite cosy; the area of Chalandri is full of restaurants and shops at walking distance. If you plan to hang around down town Athens or elsewhere, the close Metro station let you get wherever you want. I definitely recommend her and her flat for you trip to Athens!
Eleni met us very late upon arrival with the keys and showe us around the apartment. We would like to say a big thank you.
I spent four days in Elina's beautiful apartment in Athens; it was a wonderful experience from start to finish and Elina was a wonderful host.
To start, Elina was very flexible, very friendly and even picked me up from the train station when I arrived at Chalandri. The kitchen was well-stocked and complete with food, condiments and drinks, as well as CDs, DVDs and books, while Elina was a perfect hostess.
The apartment itself is spacious, cool and beautifully decorated, with a lovely view Chalandri from the balcony. It's located within walking distance of a Carrefour, two minutes from the centre of Chalandri and its many restaurants, bars and shops, and a ten minute walk from Chalandri metro station.
All in all, I would highly recommend Eleni's apartment for a wonderful experience of Athens!
