The cottage offers everything you need for your stay, BBQ, full kitchen facilities, a beautiful courtyard which is fantastic for enjoying the beautiful weather and eating breakfast. The upper deck offers some great views and is a fab sun trap. Would recommend to anyone looking to make a home away from home. Hope to return next year, thanks Greg and Gretl 😊

The interior patio was a real treat, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen small but well equipped. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and very responsive. We also very much enjoyed the neighbourhood which was quirky and a bit alternative, but also felt safe and well located for visiting all of Athens.
