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.

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.

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.

The owners and daughter (who met us at the property) were easy to communicate with and very hospitable. The apartment has everything you would need for a self catering stay and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Thank you.

We found the apartment clean and well located to all the attractions. George and his team have all been very helpful. Excellent communication before, during and after our stay. Thankyou
