About Sandra&Simos Tzagos

Sandra was born and grew up in New Zealand,and came to Greece in 1977.Simos was born on the island of Lesbos.We met on a cruise ship,the Stella Solaris(SunLine),where we were both working.We spend our time,between Alimos,a suburb of Athens,and Charakas.It is only 40 minutes approximately between the two homes.We swim almost all year around at Charakas beach,mostly,when the sun is out(which is about 300 days in the whole year).

Sandra&Simos Tzagos purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Sandra&Simos Tzagos chose Greece

The reason we chose this property is explained below,on the unique benefits.

What makes this apartment unique

In 2009 we first looked at this piece of land, the views,the open area, know the travelling time from Athens,from the airport and so easy to approach it.Drive or take the bus. (Athens- Sounio)4 minutes walk from the bus stop.The beach -Our beach (we go always with our bicycles 4 min) is sandy , with clear clean ,calm warm waters and it is also the Aegean sea .

All the above things convinced us to start drawing up the plans for our dream summer home,(as some body called it) on this piece of land.

It took us 3 years to finish, where we almost (11 months of the year)live at Simos's sea view at Sounio.Then it took 3 more years 2016 to finish the 2nd apartment- Sandra`s sea view at Sounio. We started renting it March 2016 .We like it when our guests e-mail us and mention how much they miss the magnificent views from our large balconies. This means to us that they agree with us as to what makes our place so unique. Most of the time our guests have their meals on the outside dining table,and the abundence of light through the large glass ranch-sliders, filtering into every room .

Wonderful location with wonderful hosts

My fiancee and I stayed here for the night as we traveled around Greece. Sandra and Simos provided excellent recommendations on where to for dinner, what routes to take. Their flat is amazing to say the least. We will definitely return!

Expectations exceeded! We had everything that we needed and more. The place is modern and nicely decorated. It is clean and bright, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. Essentials were provided so we were able to make breakfast the next morning. We were late arriving, it was dark and the hosts were watching for us and warmly greeted us and explained how everything worked. They called a local restaurant for us and arranged for a dinner to be delivered.

We had an excellent stay and would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated in a beautiful part of Greece with a direct view of the Mediterranean. It was a max of 10 minutes from the temple of Poseidon and just a short walk to go swimming in the Mediterranean.

The couple who owns it are the nicest people I've met in Greece. They helped us with anything we needed. They went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and help us with transportation. We ordered a couple meals from the house and they were delicious!

The house itself is fantastic too. Aside from the beautiful view, the house felt top notch and practically new. They have two fantastic bedrooms, a gorgeous bathroom, functional kitchen/ living area.

One note for those thinking of staying: The hosts highly recommend a rental car because transportation is not as readily available in the area (though we did have a short walk to the bus stop for Athens).

If I could give them 6 stars I would!

Higly recommended, well furnished, quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

Sandra`s seaview apartment offered us more than we expected, everything in the apartment was perfectly and with a good taste furnished. The house is situated away from the main street and is very quiet. You can enjoy on the big terrace the sea view and the nature. There is not much to do in that area in the winter time, except for the fantastic sun set at the Poseidon temple. But with a car you can easily reach to every where. The family is most helpful in every respect.

une nuit c'est trop court

  • 5 of 5

appartement au rez de chaussée surélevé d'une maison neuve ,excellent équipement, vue sur la mer, proche plage (il faisait 35° nous avons pris la voiture mais c'est faisable à pied ( moins d'1 km), nous sommes allés à Sounion bien sûr ( 6 km), Simos notre hôte était charmant et très serviable, nos hôtes occupent l'étage du dessus , si on reste plusieurs jours , s'arrêter au village précédent pour les courses. La route côtière est magnifique.
