Hello dear guest
I am Sven-Erik and together with my friends I greatly enjoy putting down every effort in the book to create a pleasant experience for you, our esteemed guests. If something is amiss I immediately endeavor to correct it. Many of the extras that have been implemented were actually suggested by our guests.
I work as an entrepreneur, mixing a consulting business with rental of dwellings and campers in Athens and Sweden.
In my leisure time I love bicycling, meditating and dancing, passing time with my children and motorcycling.
You are warmly welcome to the now four Athens flats and... perhaps you would enjoy renting a camper in Greece or Sweden?
And may I wish you happy journeys and a great vacation!
