The Space

The apartment has 1 main bedroom, a living room (which also has a double bed if there are more than two people visiting.), a well equipped kitchen (includes fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker). There is also a large bathroom with a washing machine (should you wish to do some washing). a verandah which overlooks a nice park filled with trees - somewhere you can sit in the cool of the evening and have a drink of cool wine or cold beer.
A TV is provided, and a DVD player a great range of DVD films, music tapes, books to read and some games to play should you feel you just want to stay home after your exhausting day. Wireless internet free of charge.
Heating in winter and cooling in hot summer months is provided in both rooms of the house by air condition. There is always pleanty of parking space near the house.
The kitchen has everything you need for your morning breakfast - from Rusks with butter and Greek honey or jam , Cornflakes with fresh milk, Hot coffee, tea or cocoa to home made Greek cake ( just a small touch to make you feel at home)
Freshly washed and ironed linen and individual shampoo, hair conditioner and bath soap. And of course, a must for the ladies - the hairdryer!!!
You will also find a folder, which includes maps, general tourist information and other necessary information which I think will help you organise your days in Athens.

Getting around

The two bus stops which will take you too and from the Centre of Athens are only 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Trolley No. 12 will take you directly to Omonia Square or Syndagma Square where you can begin your city tour. There is also the Metro station about a 15 minute walk from the apartment. If you use the Metro Station, you should be aware that every Metro station is a museum in itself , where antiquities found during the excavations for the building of the Metro have been put on exhibition. So it is an experience on its own to use the Metro and get off at each stop to see what has been found.
Also the central bus station for Northern Greece is 15 minutes away so you can continue your journey from here.

  • We spent 2 nights at Leandro's small but very comfortable place, in an authentic non-touristy neighbourhood close to the centre of Athens. Check-in went smoothly eventhough we arrived late in the evening. Near the apartment is a square with many restaurants including a great souvlaki place where we watched the football with locals. There is also a small grocers and a bakery close to the apartment. All in all a very convenient place to stay.

  • The apartment is situated in a nice and quiet area, and the interior design make us feel a lot like home. Everything is clean and everything we needed is provided: milk. body wash, etc. Leandros' father is very kind and nice, and explained everything to us in a detail way.

  • We stayed at Leandros' place for 5 days and had a great time! The apartment far exceeded our expectations. Everything was super clean and Leandros and his father were a pleasure to deal with. Definitely recommend to those visiting Athens!

  • Lovely and cute flat in the residential neighbourhood, only few stops from on the metro from the very heart of Athens and then about 10 min walk from the station. There are couple of midsize supermarkets on the way to the flat should you need anything. Leandros is super helpful, so if you have any questions he is only a phonecall away. You will find couple of guides and maps in the flat too. Happy to recommend his apartment!

  • Leandros was very easy and prompt to get in touch with. The apartment was perfect!! Very clean, lots of space and a nice large balcony!! Lots of information to get around the city and the tv has been upgraded to a flat screen :) This was our favorite AIRBNB place we stayed at on our vacation!! I recommend printing walking directions from the Metaxorgiou metro station before you arrive. Its not difficult, once you do it once :) Thank you very much!!

  • The place was very nice and clean and everything went easy with Leandros. The location was great, not a tourist place but walking distance to major sights and close to public transportation if you're not into walking that much. Would definitely go here again, highly recommended!

  • We stayed at Leandros place for 4 days. The area is very quiet and relaxing. It is walking distance to the market, park, restaurants. It is not at the centre of the city but it is a great place to stay. It is easy to catch bus and metro to the city center. My friend and I had great time there. Leandros father has recommended us the very best souvlaki in the neighborhood. It is somehow the best souvlaki we had by far! We went to have dinner every night on our stay. We had great time there! :)

About
I was born in Athens and lived there until I was 25. I now live on the beautiful island of Andros, a near- by island that was my vacation spot until 2004, when I decided that this was where I wanted to live permanently, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. During the summer months I work in a local hotel as this is one of the best ways to meet people, especially travellers... and who knows, maybe we will meet at some point in time... I also love travelling, meeting new people, learning new cultures - and just seeing as much of the world as I can. As a traveller myself, I know what it means to have good accommodation, friendly hosts and good information. So with this in mind I hope that I can fullfill all these requirements and ensure that your stay in Athens will be as you expecteded. It will be my pleasure to do whatever I can to meet all your needs so that you return home with the best memories.
