About the property

2 BR, 1.5 BA, sleeps 4

The 'STRATIS' is your Home away from Home in the center of Athens, which gives you the best of two worlds.

It is entrenched in the heart of the antiquities and shopping, a stone's throw away from many historical archeological finds and still nestled in a quaint location. Just a few minutes walk to many of the major sites: the Acropolis, the 'New' Acropolis Museum', Zeus Olympius Temple, Adrian’s Arch, the Marble Stadium, National Gardens, Plaka, Syntagma Square and so much more! The Metro and Tram are also just minutes away to easily take you to the beaches, waterfront restaurants and other surrounding suburbs.

This deluxe condo is in the quaint neighborhood of “Metz” that offers fresh food markets, bakeries, a pharmacy, video store and local restaurants. So the convenience to everywhere is never a question - location is fabulous!

Located on the second floor of a newly constructed six story building, this condo is beautifully decorated with a taste of Classical Greece brought into the 21st Century. With two bedrooms and 1 and 1/2 bath, it comfortably accommodates up to 4 persons.

Whether you are visiting the city, traveling the mainland of Greece or on your way to and from the infamous islands, you will have the luxury of the conveniences of your own home with a washer and dryer, two TVs, DVD player, stereo system and air-conditioning in every room. We also provide WiFi for those who want to stay connected to the rest of the world!

The fully equipped kitchen affords you the option of a quick bite to eat or preparing a full meal before you venture out to the sights and sounds of Athens.

Imagine being able to return home from the day's adventure and relaxing with some feta cheese, Greek olives and a glass of Greek wine before returning to the exciting night life of Athens! The options offered are endless!

The “Stratis” is the perfect alternative to staying in a hotel!

About Urania

My mother, siblings and children live in the northeastern part of the United States. Although we have traveled to Greece over the years, having our own home now allows us to visit several times every year. Most of our friends and family still live in our neighborhood. It could not be better!

All of us speak the Greek language and are familiar with Athens and other parts of the country. We would be happy to help where we can to make your trip more pleasurable.

Thank you for considering our Athens home!

Urania purchased this condo in 2005

Why Urania chose Mets

'The Stratis' was built in 2005 on the property where our family first immigrated to Athens from other parts of Greece over 100 years ago. Although there were many memories made throughout the decades, we chose to re-build with all the modern conveniences so that our family and friends could enjoy our home for many more years to come.

We are located less than 30 minutes from the airport and the major ferry port, where we are able to leave for day cruises or longer. Public transportation and taxis afford us the luxury of being able to go to the local beaches and mountains for the day. There are also car rental companies within a few blocks when we want to travel through the mainland of Greece.

Our condominium becomes home base so we can visit with family and friends and still vacation. It is truly our 'home away from home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We went to Athens during Christmas, 2009, to visit our daughter who is teaching English literature in a local prep school. The condo was great, and the weather cooperated. We had all the amenities we needed and food stores were within walking distance. Marika, the local manager, is a great minister of hospitality as well. This condo should be a serious consideration if you're planning a trip to Athens.

Perfect for our stay in Athens

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful apartment equipped with everything we needed. Ourania was extremely helpful with all the information she gave us. Marika met us at the apartment and explained everything to us. She was wonderful with everything! The location of the apartment is perfect to visit many of the sights in Athens. We were able to walk to the Acropolis Museum, Syntagma Square, Plaka, Monastiraki and many other places in the center of Athens. Antoni the taxi driver recommended to us was very helpful in picking up our relatives at the airport and bringing them to the apartment. Overall, it was a very positive experience and would love to use the apartment again when we visit Athens. Thank you, Ourania, Marika and Antoni.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from trip to Greece in which we had a stay here. We couldn't be happier. Apartment was clean, comfortable and so close to historic Athens. Marika met us on arrival , gave us an orientation to the apartment, had a great welcome basket for us and had suggestions on local sites. We were in easy walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka, museums etc. We attended an evening concert at the Odeon and felt perfectly safe walking back to apartment late night vs taking taxi. We both would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This apartment was lovely and very well kept and presented. Marika welcomed us with open arms!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to walk just a few blocks for food, and to the steps of the Acropolis. The apartment was perfect, and I Marika, the hostess was truly warm and caring. Anything we needed help with or answers for, she was willing and able. I would recommend this for anyone that needs two bedrooms in this area. Thank you!

Charming, comfortable, and well located

  • 5 of 5

In addition, the beds were comfortable and the hostess was accommodating. We easily enjoyed Athens from this location, which is in very short walking distance of Plaka. Restaurants, grocery store, and pharmacy are also in the immediate vicinity. How can you go wrong?? Thank you for an enjoyable stay, and I would certainly recommend this apartment to others.

Super clean and comfortable beds

  • 5 of 5

Possibly the best apartment we have ever stayed at. Marika greeted us with food treats and a warm welcome. She made several suggestions about places to visit and even led us to a weekly market. We had plenty of hot water and the washer and dryer came with instructions in English. We could walk almost everywhere, but the metro and tram were close by. This is the place to stay in Athens.

Just perfect, a traditional Greek apartment. Excellent location, walked everywhere.

  • 5 of 5

Urania's apartment is exactly as described on VRBO. The special perk is the property manager is her best friend Marika. They grew up together. Marika was always available. She sent us messages to make suggestions and check on us, as we were out and about most of the time. The local neighborhood has everything one needs, especially when you're tired after a long day. Very glad there was a washer and dryer. Also a bath and a half bath. We could live here. Really didn't want to leave. Thanks Marika and Urania.
