You won't miss a thing and you will be proud to say that you enjoyed all the vibrant atmosphere of Athens but that you also relaxed and rested in the most safe and cozy environment. During summer time, don't miss a visit to the many beaches close by!

Perfect for couples, close to the metro, and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

Olga is an amazing hostess. She gave us plenty of tips on traveling through Athens, stayed up late for us to check in, and was very accommodating for our check out. The apartment is perfect for couples who want to be close to Athens but not around the constant motion of the city. The location is safe, relatively quiet and very close to the Ilioupoli Metro Station. We will be staying here again the next time we visit Athens for any reason.

Perfect Hostss

  • 5 of 5

Olga and Lucas were perfect hosts, collecting us from the airport late in the evening, giving good advice for day trips, and places to visit etc. The flat was immaculately presented, very homely, spotlessly clean, and very close to the metro. The neighborhood is quiet so a good nights sleep is assured. There were a range of maps and guides which were more informative than our own.

We would highly recommend Olga's flat. Far better experience than most Hotels.

Cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed here for five days. The owners were extremily nice. They helped us with everything. They even brought us to the airport and included free breakfast. Good location away from the hustle and bustle of Athens, but still very easy to get to the city centre with the metro. Also the neighbourhood has great restaurants. The apartment itself has a cosy and welcoming interior. The place was on the smaller side, but it had everything we needed and it still felt pretty spacious. The apartment was very clean. We really recommend staying here.

Toller Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Mai 4 Tage in Athen verbracht. Die hübsch eingerichtete Wohnung ist für zwei Personen genau richtig. Von hier aus erreicht man die Innenstadt mit der U-Bahn innerhalb von 10 Minuten, aber auch die nahe gelegenen Strände sind entweder öffentlich oder mit Auto in nur 15 bis 25 Minuten zu erreichen. Die Wohnung war bei unserer Ankunft in einem einwandfreiem und sehr sauberem Zustand. Die Kommunikation mit Olga und Lukas verlief sehr unkompliziert und mehr als freundlich. Besonders hervorheben möchte ich die wunderschöne Dachterrasse und das von Olga verfasste Travelguide auf dem Schreibtisch mit Tipps und Wissenswertes in Athen. Ich kann die Wohnung jedem uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

Appartement agréable et fonctionnel situé dans un quartier calme

  • 4 of 5

Il est très bien pour aller visiter Athènes grâce au métro tout proche ou bien la côte sud en voiture.
