The space

Located in Glyfada, the closest beach town to Athens, the 120 square meters (1,291 sq. feet) apartment is within a 25 minute metro ride from the Parthenon and a mere 5 minute walk to the beach. It caters to travelers eager to experience classical Athens and its monuments - without the hustling and busting of a downtown stay – while enjoying a morning or late afternoon dip in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.

The house was built by my grandfather in the 1950s, and has undergone since two thorough renovations. It offers all 21st century amenities and its craftsmanship and details exuberate class in an unassuming manner. Two separate bedrooms, a spacious living area with an open plan kitchen, two bathrooms, a front porch and a shared backyard orchard can easily accommodate four people or even five in some cases. A ping pong table and a BBQ can make a lazy day at the house quite eventful.

And yet, it shall be a serious omission to overlook the shopping offerings of Glyfada. There are choices for all purses, from designer stores to middle of the road mom & pop stores which make a shopping trip to downtown Athens redundant.

For the more adventurous the numerous beach towns to the South of Glyfada can serve as a one day excursion, and thus making the pilgrimage to the Temple of Poseidon, located in the southernmost tip of Attica a 30 minute drive, an unforgettable experience.

Having dinner at a monastery dining table surrounded by the citrus backyard orchard, and shaded by grapevines is the perfect ending of a long day spent by the sea or visiting the Acropolis. I would be more than eager to host you at my family home and make sure you will have a memorable stay.

At an extra cost I can arrange and organize:
Pick-up and drop off from and to the Athens airport
Culinary Services
Drive to nearby beaches and lakes
Diving Lessons
Tours of Athens by real experts

This place was perfect. It was everything we needed for our long weekend in Greece and we found Glyfada to be a delightful area to spend some easy days either prior to or after day trips to the many tourist attractions nearby. Our hosts were phenomenal and tremendously accommodating for all of our needs, including our travel with our infant son. They made things seamless and easy and I would stay there again any time.

This is very cosy and spacious family house surrounded by lemon trees and beautiful flowers. Located on a quiet street but with restaurants, supermarkets and beaches within walking distance. Perfect for family with kids. Many thanks to Eric, our host, he was very helpful! And also many thanks to Giorgos, taxi driver recommended by Eric, who took us from/to the airport and made with us a long trip to Delphi.

The apartment was amazing and exactly as it appears in photos. The location is great and is walking distance to the beach and main part of town. There is air conditioning which is a treat after the hot days :) would definitely come back

It's a beautiful place with pretty much everything we needed. There are so many shops and restaurants and a children's playground in the neighbouring streets. There's a basic beach within 10 minutes walk, at the bottom of the main street. Constantine's brother Eric next-door was very friendly and always helpful. Similarly their taxi driver contact George was brilliant. The nearest tramstop is only 3 minutes walk. But beware: we chose the location with the plan to catch the tram into central Athens; we did that but it takes nearly an hour. That was our fault not the host's. A couple of downsides... There were quite a few mosquitoes around: we each got bitten numerous times despite keeping the doors and windows closed most of the time. We tried burning the yellow candles but that didn't seem to deter the mosquitoes. It would have been better if more than 2 windows had mosquito screens. For example the shower room ended up very damp because we couldn't leave the window open to allow it dry out. Two mornings of disturbance from several hours of noisy leaf-blowing.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location is a 3 mins walk to the main street where you can find resturants, cafes and do your shopping. The apartement is clean, spacious and you can enjoy your coffee or a meal at the patio with lots of trees around you. There is good wifi. The kitchen is big and has everything you need. The hosts were nice and friendly, the helped us with a taxi from and to the airport and we found some patisseries at the kitchen on our arrival, they even emailed us with a guide to Glyfada and Athens. Definitly recommended.
