This is the flat i grew up in. As a tribute to that, I hope you will enjoy my mother’s traditional embroidery work spread around the place!
Guests have the whole flat to themselves and access to both bedrooms, bathroom, living room / kitchen area and balcony. When booking please let me know which room you would like to sleep in and how many different beds you require.
The apartment is situated at Saranta Ekklisies, possibly the nicest and safest area in central Thessaloniki with a real neighborhood feeling, just over the University campus. The great mix of people and its location are the reason why this laid-back residential area is the most sought-after place to live in for people who want to be right next to the busy city centre but also enjoy the peace and quietness this area has to offer.
Supermarkets, bakeries and cafes can be found just around the corner from the flat. A big stadium with a running track open to the public is 10' away on foot. If you are here on a Tuesday, don't miss the weekly open-air fruit and vegetable farmers' market just around the corner.
The flat is easy to reach by bus (the only public transport available in Thessaloniki!) from the bus and train station as well as the airport. You can find detailed instructions in the confirmed guest information that you will receive after your booking!
Walking around is really easy. The flat is a 10’ walk to Kamara (the city's main meeting spot), a 15’ walk to the White Tower, the city's museums and the seafront and a 20’ walk to Aristotelous sq., the city’s main square. A walk in the city’s forest is only 5’ away on foot. It's the perfect choice for guest teachers/researchers or visitors to the University as it's only a few minutes walk away from the University campus.
There is a bus stop 50m away from the flat, serving 2 buses (n. 15 and 16) that will take you anywhere around the city centre. The old town is also easily accessible by bus (bus stop at 10' walk) or even on foot taking an easy walk next to the forest with great views of the city!
Other Things to Note
Parking is safe and easily available in the nearby streets free of charge.
Before your arrival we will arrange a time to meet so that I can hand you the keys and give you a short tour of the flat. City maps and lots of information and advice on things to see and do are available upon arrival. I speak Greek, English and Spanish and I am always available via email or phone during your stay to help and provide information. If you would like to plan ahead, have a look at my guidebook at the top right hand corner of this page for suggestions on restaurants and other interesting venues around the city.
The way to book: Airbnb is based on trust and I love and care for my place. Although Instant Book is enabled, I would like to hear about you and your trip before sending a reservation request. I promise to get back to you with a response within a couple of hours.
Enjoy your stay in Thessaloniki and feel free to contact me with any queries!
Welcome to my place! Feel at home and have a look at the following considerations:
Please smoke in the balcony: there is a table, chairs and ashtray!
Feel free to use all the pots, pans and kitchen utensils but make sure you wash up before you go.
Please take the rubbish downstairs in the green rubbish bins across the street. There is a recycling bin 50m away on the main street.
Neighbours are friendly. Please respect their peace and quiet during small hours and between 3-5pm (siesta time!).
There is no cleaning feel so try your best to leave the place as you found it.
That's it really! Thanks and enjoy your stay!

Dear Stella, we had perfekt days in Your flat. Everything was as we had expected, kitchen and rooms were very well equipped. So we thank You very much for Your hospitality and wish You a lot of other guests who are as content as we have been. Yours, Renate and Claudia
This place is great and Stella was very accommodating and welcoming. We are definitely happy we chose this place and would stay here again. While not in the downtown section of Thessaloniki, if you have a car and want easy parking, and/or if you like it quiet and spacious and extremely clean and comfortable, then choose Stella's place. We were able to park right in front of the apartment. The apartment was two floors up and so a climb with luggage, but well-worth it to us (a fit 60-something couple). It's an uphill walk back from the center of town, but there's as a simple alternative there is the very convenient bus that drops you off very close and you avoid the climb. (Stella explains the bus in her online guide.) During our 3 days, we took the bus one time but we also walked a couple times and figured out the footpath that shortens the climb. BTW, if you use google maps to drive there, we could not find Stella's location and instead google maps led us 5 kilometers astray. However, we then tried inputting the nearby address that Stella provided as an alternative, and not only did that work perfectly on google maps, but, from that very nearby location, we could see her street and had no trouble finding her place.
Stella is polite and scrupulous. The apartment was clean and cozy. There were detailed instructions where required. The neighbourhood is quiet and suitable for long walks or running. I really liked the aesthetics of the apartment and felt like home right away. Looking forward to visiting the city of Thessaloniki and staying there again.
