I have travelled a lot for business and leisure and I can appreciate genuine hospitality.I love people who have the natural curiosity to explore other countries and I would be pleased to offer them an opportunity to relax and enjoy themselves.
Ralou's apartment was even nicer than the description. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Fabulously situated for walking to so many Athens sites but also close to public transport. Ralou was warm and welcoming and very kind and generous. We will definitely stay there again and recommend it highly. You will love it!
Good response from host. Ralou arranged a taxi to the airport. The apartment was in a great part of town. Apartment was well equipped, clean, and (website hidden) of all is that the apartment had a wonderful feeling about it. The front overlooked a street(not noisy at night) and the back had its own private garden. I wish we could have had more time in Athens. Thanks again Ralou
The view from the balcony across the bay is the best view ever! You can sit there for hours just watching the boats and the birds and butterflies go by..
Or you can relax in the hammock. :) If you walk a couple of minutes you can lay on the beach, where you will probably be alone or only see a few people, and swim in the clear blue and calm sea. At night you can drive to a beach side restaurant and have fresh grilled fish with a good glass of wine and a greek salad.
The island is beautiful, very green! In short everything you need for a very relaxing vacation..! We did not want to leave this place it is so good!!!
Ralou is an excelent host !! Thinking in all kind of details to make you have a wonderful stay! You couldnt (email hidden) in Athens. Everything is a walking distance from the apartment. This is comfortable, quiet, very well equiped and with the supermarket and bakery in the opossite street. Ralou also leaves some fruits, wine and cookies for you. So lovely !! Thanks Ralou for everything !!
Considerate and attentive hosts. This would be enough in my book, but the apartment is comfortable with all the right amenities--and clean! We travelled with our 18 month old and it worked for him! Also, the apt's location was both convenient and enviable: right across (email hidden) & famous bakery, and steps away from the pedestrian path up to the Acropolis and an evening destination with musicians, puppeteers, young and old taking in beautiful Athenian summer nights.
Our stay here was wonderful! Our host, even though she was out of country, arranged everything for us! She had a taxi pick us up and take us right to the apartment! Everything was taken care of for us, I highly recommend staying here and with this host!
We stayed 2 nights in this lovely apartment in Athens. Communications with Ralou was excellent at all times, ( including when I thought I had left a pair of earrings behind!).
Ralou's husband met us at the apartment and showed us around. Everything was as described , and was very clean and comfortable, with so many little extras that made the stay excellent....fresh coffee, cinnamon biscuits and lovely juicy oranges.
Having breakfast outside in the court yard was a delight, and the bakery opposite is a must to visit, you are spoilt for choice!
There is lots of information in the apartment about the area, and places to visit, getting to the metro is easy, and the area feels safe.
We really enjoyed Ralou's apartment, and would highly recommend a stay here. We hope to return in the future.
The location of this apartment is great! Right in the centre of Athens, walking distance to Acropolis. And even though it is in the centre the apartment itself feels very calm and peaceful. This is partly because there is a lovely garden/ patio with plants and you can hear the birds singing in the trees outside :)
Ralou has been an excellent host. She gave us use full tips and left us some coffee and wine so we felt right at home!
Thank you Ralou!!!
Great place and memorable experience. Very nice place for weekends or longer summer vacations. The house is cosy and the view breathtaking. You can spend hours in the terrace enjoying the calm an beauty of the location.
We had a really nice stay in Ralou's apartment. It is the perfect size for a couple and the common area is quite comfortable to hang out. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and is a very short walk to all the main sites.
Although we did not get to meet Ralou, she is very organized and thinks of everything in advance, which made it really easy for us! She even organized pick-up from and drop-off to the airport.
Thank you Ralou for your kind hospitality and thoughtfulness!
Ralou is very sympathetic and pleasant. A very careful, clean and respectable. 100% recommended
Apart from being great respectful guests, Roula and Constantino are lovely people we had the pleisure to host. We hope to see you soon!

Roula is a true hostess, "oikodespina' as we say in Greece, a lady catering to the needs of her family, friends and anyone needing her help!
I am sure that her house reflects her taste and her love for beautiful things.
she is an "Atenista", a volunteer and an activist. Meeting her will be an experience!
You need to meet Roula in person to really find out what an exciting person she is!
She has the special and rare, I must admit, gift of putting you at ease and making you feel
at home. A very pleasant and cultured personality, constantly informed about what is happening in town. There is no theatre play, concert, exposition or new place for food and drinks she won't know !
A living "TIME-OUT".

In a matter of minutes she can capture your heart and make you feel comfortable with just her smile and her welcoming nature. I was lucky enough to be hosted by Roula at her lovely apartment twice. She really takes care of the house and is super clean and tidy. The apartment is brand new, very tastefull and cosy! Moreover location is really good since it is connected both with the airport and city center. I could easily move around the area and get to the center in minutes. There are a lot of nice bars and restaurants around, plus the best junk street food in Athens! Roula keeps herself updated on what's going on in Athens and could give you tips and information on Athen's whereabouts, events and must sees.When you decide to rent a (email hidden) remember that you not only get a great room and location but also an exceptional host that will turn your accommodation into a lifetime experience! Go Roula!
I first met Roula 17 years ago during a conference in Milan and became friends straightaway. Since then we have kept close and I never pass through Athens without staying at her wonderful home in the Nort of Athens. What can I say for Roula and family ? The most generous,faithful and lively person ever, full of resources and fresh ideas. I wholeheartedly wish her "good luck" with her new project for this beautiful apartment she just finished putting up in the center of Athens. I will absolutely recommend it to all my colleagues travelling through Athens as I know this will be the perfect place to stay. Brava Roula !! Complimenti !!
