Make a holiday rental home or villa in Attica, Greece your home away from home

Attica is the southern most prefecture of central Greece. Probably a better description is that Attica is the region surrounding Athens! Much of Greece’ history took place in Attica, and tourism to the region is focused on the unbelievable range of historical sites, many of which influenced global history. Although taking an Attica villa in Athens is a great holiday idea, there are also some glorious beaches and excellent walking country to be discovered from a holiday home in Attica.

Things to do on holiday in Attica, Greece

The glorious beaches of Glyfada, Makri and Nea draw huge number of sunbathers and swimmers every year, and for good reason. The beaches are fine, golden sandy beaches, where the long hot summers are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. An Attica villa in Glyfada for example is on one of the finest stretches of sand in Greece, where the warm calm waters lend themselves perfectly to sailing holidays. The nautical week is held in July.

Across Attica, hiking and mountain trekking are hugely popular activities, especially in the north of the region. There are mountain hiking clubs and centres across the region, or you can just buy a map and set of to discover the countryside surrounding your self catering holiday home in Attica.

There are no end of incredible archaeological sites, which help to piece together the origins of democracy and the magnificent story of Ancient Greece. Whilst many of the most celebrated sites of Attica are located in Athens itself, there are some unbelievable attractions to be seen around the area. Tours of Attica will take you to Marathon, 5th Century Temples of Poseidon, Dimitra, Artemis and Vravrona, Paiania Cave,

Places to holiday in Attica, Greece

Athens is the most famous city in Greece, boasting sites which piece together the entire history of this amazing country. The Parthenon, the National garden traditional market in Plaka and a few of Athens’ glorious museums are a short list of the first places to see on a weekend break, but this is certainly not any form of list of all the things to see and do in Athens.

Aegina Island is a blissful paradise, away from the throngs of tourists, isolated 40 minutes from the Greek mainland. It is a haven of peace, where scuba diving and various water sports are the only thing disturbing the tranquillity of the magnificent beaches. The other island of real note, Spetses, is known for its distinctive architecture, unspoilt natural landscape of pine forests and plethora of coves, sandy or rocky to claim for your own for a day.

From January until May, temperatures stay between 10°C and 15°C, making it a very pleasant time to take an Attica villa for walking and sightseeing. In May, there is a dramatic temperature rise, with daily temperatures soaring into the mid 30’s, when the beaches and water surrounding Attica become the focal point for holidays.

                                                        The apartment was very clean, spacious and a good position.

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We really enjoyed staying at the apartment, it had everything we needed for the four of us. There were some good ,very near restaurants and also a supermarket. Ten minutes walk away was a larger supermarket and shops. You can walk up phillopopou hill ( looking at all the ruins takes a bit longer) and down the other side to the bottom of the acropolis in twenty minutes. Plaka was a 15minute walk away. Our favourite places were the panathanaic stadium which was very atmospheric and without lots of people and the same for the ancient Agora.We used Vangelis for the taxi both ways, who was very prompt and reliable. Maria was also very kind as she allowed us to leave all our luggage in the apartment as we had a late flight. We all had a lovely holiday and one day will go back.

                                                        Exceptional host, great apartment; superb terrace

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. Admittedly, it is in a very hilly area but, local taxis are so cheap (for a party of 4 or 5 they are even cheaper than the local transport) and so easily obtained, it didn't matter. There are plenty of local amenities close by; pharmacy, bakers, supermarket and a wide variety of bars and restaurants. The shower in the apartment was one of the best I have ever found in a holiday let and the roof terrace is massive with lots of comfortable space for outdoor dining and amazing views. However, the best thing about this apartment is Nikos himself. We had one of those accident prone type holidays and Nikos did not hesitate to drop everything to come to our assistance. When my sister had her mobile phone stolen Nikos came to the police station and helped us to register the crime (for our insurance company), translated the statement and generally smoothed everything out for us. On the way to the port, for our onward journey to Crete, we discovered one of our cases had been left behind. We called Nikos as, having left the keys inside the apartment, we had no way of getting back in and, once again, he quickly arranged to meet us back at the apartment so that we could retrieve our case. Not only was he there for us when we needed him but he did it all with a smile and a good sense of humour! I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

                                                        Our stay at with Manos

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We found the property ideal for our needs. Clean, well equipped, good room sizes and outside space. Perfect. Manos and Niki we're welcoming and a good source of info. Very reasonably priced. Had a great time in Athens, public transport nearby and also very clean and cheap. Taxis not expensive either. Thanks for enabling an enjoyable break.
