This is a wonderful property in an excellent, quiet, safe and charming location. All of the amenities in the apartment worked as expected, it was clean, comfortable, quiet, and relaxing - it left nothing to be desired. The outdoor walks on the waterfront (very close by) were rich and relaxing, and the local restaurants, beach area, people - just fun and enjoyable to experience. Dimitris was a wonderful host and provided friendly, responsive assistance in every way we needed as newcomers to the country. If we return to the Athens area - we will rebook. We loved it.

For our party of 10 adults and teens the accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The winter weather did not diminish the views or the comfort of our stay in this well-situated and cosy home. It is well-equipped if you wish to cook or relax at home; however, even in winter, the local town offered a very warm welcome to its bakery, coffee shops, tavernas and grocers. The radio, tv and WiFi kept the teens happy along with the ample range of food:cakes, bread, cheese, yogurt and meats left for us on our arrival. Efterpi was such a kind host who greeted us on arrival and was happy to answer our questions about how to get around the area. A car is essential for accessing the property as it is at the top of a very steep hill; however, there is ample parking in the towns all around and the public transport to Athens is very cheap, frequent and reliable. There is plenty of outside space with garden, hammock, ample seating, pool and impressive barbecue area - we just didn't make use of it. We wanted a relaxing mid-winter break for 3 generations of the family and we were not disappointed with the quality or the range of the facilities available to us either at the property or within the town of Saronida and the surrounding area.
