Jhoanne was amazing from booking right through to us leaving with great communication at all times (once you book she sends you a link to the apartment website which is full of great information) The location was ideal a two minute walk to the Victoria metro station station and the local area had everything you'd want for eating, drinking and shopping. Everything in the apartment contrinbuted to a great break and the large TV and fast wifi allowed us to relax as a family at night. There's even a view of the acropolis from the balcony I'd recommend this apartment to anyone.

The property is beautifully kept, in excellent order, very well appointed and spacious. Ioanna and Dimitris were most welcoming and showed us all we needed to know. We spent most of our time outside. The garden is spacious and we were able to pick aubergines, tomatoes and strawberries from the garden and had fresh eggs from the chickens. There were plenty of places to sit peacefully out of the sun or, if you wanted, beside the pool which was super clean and tidy with comfortable beds/chairs to relax in. The kitchen was superb and the barbecue was great. Locally there are sandy beaches that are a 30/40 minute walk to or as we preferred, a 15 min drive east to a quiet rocky bay, where you could swim into lovely deep calm water. We found there were numerous places to buy fruit and veg locally and there were restaurants nearby (short car journey away, 5 -15 mins). The house is fairly close to a road, but this didn't worry us, nor did it detract from our holiday.
