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.

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 place where we stayed, near Schinias beach, was a very spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bathrooms villa/townhouse in a quiet & peaceful part of Greece but still not far to the capital. From the villa the views of the mountains and nearby island was breath-taking. There is also a lovely shared swimming pool which my children really enjoyed using. They have never stayed in a place with a swimming pool before so it was very exciting for them. And within a short walk down from the villa there is a rocky beach with beautifully clear waters where we were able to snorkel & watch the little fishes swimming everywhere. We were made very welcome from Rosa who managed the place. She even came to find us when we got lost in the car on the way to the villa!! Her husband, Stavros, does special tours so we hired him for the day to take us across by ferry to a remote place on an island where we were able to swim under a beautiful natural waterfall and enjoy the waves of a remote beach location used mainly by campers. By end of day he took us to a very local greek tavern where we were able to try out some fantastic local delicacies (such as goat stew) which were amazing. Overall, everyone had a wonderful & memorable experience in Greece and of the warm hospitality of the Greek locals. My only advice is to make sure you hire a car as this is essential for getting around various places. To get to the capital city, it is advisable to park the car in Pallini & take the train to the Acropolis or Syntagma Square. I was a little hesitant about driving in Greece but it was very easy but make sure you have a satnav device available at all times. We hired one at the car rental. The world may be a big place but we most definitely hope to return to Greece again one day.

This apartment was extremely clean, every thought has been given to what travellers may need and all the extras were very much appreciated. The owners were very hospitable and extremely helpful and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. Although we were only in Athens for a few days after being on the islands, this stay was definitely a highlight. All the must-see sights were within walking distance and it was wonderful to return to the coolness of the apartment for the hottest part of the day. The fast internet was appreciated by our teenage daughters. Thanks to John and his dad for everything.

The views of the Acropolis and Parthenon from the balcony made it even more special. It was in a great location - very handy for the metro (just a few minutes walk) for getting to all the places we wanted to visit during our stay. The neighbourhood was great with friendly locals, supermarkets, grocers, tavernas and a rather lovely pastry shop! We were so well looked after by Kostas; from his excellent instructions for getting from the airport, arranging for us to be met and escorted to the apartment, lots of really useful information about Athens - places to visit and eat, getting about, arranging a taxi for our transfer to the ferry port for our onward journey. Not to mention all his invaluable help with a slight hiccup we had on arrival - we couldn't have got through it without him (note of caution if you use the metro - keep tight hold of possessions, especially wallets!!). Overall we had a brilliant stay in a fantastic apartment and were very well looked after by Kostas. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, and highly recommend the apartment. Thank you Kostas!
