A classy two bedroom apartment, flush with light and surrounded by lemon trees located in the heart of Glyfada.

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, one bathrooms, front and back balconies, and a shared backyard orchard can easily accommodate a party of four people. 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

BEST AIRBNB I'VE EVER STAYED IN! I could not have asked for a better stay at Constantine and Eric's apartment. The photos did not do it justice! It was located in one of the best positions in Glyfada (which is the poshy suburb of Athens, very lively in summertime with lots of cool restaurants and bars, plus lots of shopping!). I was staying by myself, and I felt completely safe walking home alone as it was so closely located to everything. The apartment itself was HUGE! Two massive bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an even better living room / kitchen for entertainment. Beautiful views from the balcony of the garden and the greater Glyfada area. Very clean and newly renovated, plus beautiful interior design. Eric was staying just downstairs so was at my complete disposal if I had any questions or concerns, I much prefer this type of Airbnb stay. Eric even provided me with enough bread and sweets to feed me for a week! Very generous. Will 100% be back to stay next summer, with my family and friends! Thank you very much Eric and Constantine.

Constantine is a great host, he was very kind and careful on handling our stay. His home is located really in Glyfada downtown but at the same time it's very quite. Costantine's home is nice and reveals care on the interior design. Definitely a unique stay. Many thanks

What a fantastic experience! I stayed here with my husband and 8 month old and could not recommend this place enough! The place was clean, well equipped, spacious and in an excellent location! We stayed here at the end of a three month stay in Greece and it was the only place in Greece in which a proper cot was provided for our baby (& we stayed in some five star resorts during this time)! We very much felt like we were at home here! We wished we had stayed at this place the whole time! The hosts were a delight to deal with! On arrival they had fresh bread, juice, tsoureki etc so we wouldn't find an empty fridge! We were also provided with very useful information about the area (local bakeries, where to get groceries, coffee etc). I would definitely stay here again when I come to Athens!

Wonderful stay in Glifada! Very well furnished apartment with great taste for colors and style. Very clean and well equipped kitchen, towels, bed linen... Balconies to both sides and a nice garden to look at. Flat is one block away from the main shopping street and located in a peaceful single owned mansion. We were staying for 2 weeks around Easter and had a great time. During the last ten years have stayed in flats in Kolonaki, koukaki and Meds - and I must say your house is a true gem and the location is perfect. Keep this way! Thanks again for the warm welcome by Eric!
