Self-Catering Athens - Holiday Rentals (300+)

Recent Reviews

Outstanding apartment in a convenient location

5 of 5
What a wonderful light, airy and spacious apartment. The balcony is excellent especially on hot Athens summer days. We found everything we needed and more together with helpful suggestions from Pantelis for restaurants etc. The location is an interesting one - within walking distance of the main sites yet away from the busy tourist areas. We enjoyed the student vibe in the streets around.

GREAT APARTMENT AND CITY

4 of 5
The apartment was is a great part of Athens Near to the historic sites, shopping and transport. The flat was as advertised and even a little better. More like a 4 star hotel room with self catering facilities. Would just like to say thanks to George and would recommend the flat
