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

Rafina is a lively port in the Attica region of mainland Greece. Located in the quiet countryside outside Athens, many people come to Rafina, not only as a wonderful place to catch ferries out to the Greek Islands, but also as a relaxing yet bustling haven outside the Greek capitol.

The seaside location is of course a huge bonus for Rafina. The busy port bustles with both ferries and leisure boats, offering not only day trips to neighbouring islands, but also scuba diving and fishing expeditions.

The sea also has a great effect on the culture in Rafina. The seafood restaurants bring in diners from around the local area, bringing a great atmosphere.

The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable. Stephen, who likes to keep up with what's going on at home was a bit disappointed with TV reception but it didn't bother me at all. The outside space was a bonus especially relaxing on the swinging sun lounger. The apartment was always cool when we returned from a day at the beach and rarely had to use air con. Kitchen was well equipped with pots and pans but a small saucepan would have been useful and maybe a tin opener. Some lighter bed linen and a choice of softer pillows would have been appreciated. Dimitris and his wife were very accommodating and Dimitris was very friendly helpful and picked us up from the port and even took us to the local Lidl to get our supplies which was much appreciated. Thank you for making our last day memorable. Apartment is in a good location and although we did not hire a car we were able to get everywhere we wanted to on foot as we are keen walkers. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Our family had an amazing holiday (2 adults, 2 teenage children). The Villa is wonderful and it has everything you need to make your holiday perfect. The villa is furnished to a high standard with lovely décor and is exceptionally clean with air conditioning, which was needed in August. The temperature was in the mid to high 30’s but with breeze around the villa was wonderful. The outside area is fantastic, with lots of room to relax and entertain. The bar and barbeque area is very well equipped for outside dining. The pool is large and cleaned regularly with the benefit of a shower and changing room. The gardens are beautiful and lovingly maintained, all contained within security gates. And the sea view is perfect at sunrise. The Villa location is also ideal, however you will need a car. It’s very close to the port of Rafina and about 30 minutes from Athens. There is a great café/restaurant a short walk away “The View Club” (which also has a small shop, which was perfect for us as we arrived on a Sunday when most shops are shut in Greece). There are many restaurants in Rafina if you choose not to use the well equipped kitchen and bar. There are many gorgeous beaches along the coast, with quite a lot having beach clubs if you go slightly north, with all the amenities you could ask for. Villa Katia is a perfect base for a varied holiday, depending on what you want. It is perfect for relaxation, the surrounding area is beautiful and quiet. But if you are also interested in history, it, gives you the option to see lots of historic sights and walks if so desired. I would recommend the Temple of Poseidon in the south, near Sounio which is best seen at sun set, it was the most beautiful I have ever seen. If you are interested in sports, there is a tennis court at “the view Club” and lots of water sports at the beaches. Katia is a wonderful host and is on hand if you need anything at all. I would highly recommend staying here and hope to go back in the future. Thank you Katia for letting us stay and making our holiday the most memorable time we’ve had.
