Home, sweet home.

Beautiful view to a green hill, you can hear only birds singing. 2 minutes walking distance to the bus and metro station and 3 stops later you find yourself to Acropolis, another stop and you arrive to Syntagma square,in the center of Athens. You can even walk to Acropolis, it is about 10-15 minutes away. In less than 10 minutes walking distance, there is also a tram station if you want to visit the beach. It is really easy to access the airport and the port of Piraeus. Fully equipped, this cheerful, coloured appartment is ideal for 2 persons but it can accomodate up to 4. It has one bedroom, a living-room in which a sofa turns into double bed, a dining-room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Brand new mattresse, A/C, tv and dvd player in both bedroom and living-room.

I will be very happy to give you information about my city in general. I am sure you will enjoy your stay and hope that you will feel so comfortable, that you will feel you are at "home, sweet home" :) * As an animal lover and a stray animals volunteer, there is also a donation box in the appartment. Unfortunately, there are many strays in our city, in our country and any help is precious. Thank you Interaction with Guests It's up to you! My first priority is to be always available for my guests through mail, text or call. It will be my pleasure to give you information and tips about my city and for short excursions near Athens. Upon request, there is the possibility to have a taxi driver waiting for you at the airport, to take you back at the airport/port, or to organise short, private tours in the city. If you are interested in something of the above, please let me know to arrange it and inform you of the choices and charges. Is there anything special that you celebrate during your stay? Birthday, anniversary or something else? Please let me know about any special occasions. If you are going to visit an island or another area of Greece before or after your stay in my apartment, let me know about the place, it will be my pleasure to give you tips and recommendations. I am not only here to host you but to help you organise the best holidays ever! The Neighborhood The neighborhood is friendly and safe. I love this small green hill, right in front of the apartment, it is so quiet and green. It is really convenient that the metro, bus and tram stations are in walking distance. And many times, I love walking until Acropolis and Syntagma square, it is not so far away! There is almost everything you night need in walking distance, really close to the house, such as: pharmacy, super market (which is open daily, even on weekends until late at night), open air vegetables, fruit and fish market every Monday, coffee shops and restaurants in the square of Aghios Ioannis, where the metro station is. My neighbours are really friendly, you could even knock their door in case you need something! Getting around Aghios Ioannis metro station in only 2 minutes walking away. Neos Kosmos tram station is in walking distance too. From the airport you can take the bus, line X95. You will arrive at Syndagma Square and there, you will take the metro, the line to Aghios Dimitrios or Hellinikon and the metro station by the house is Aghios Ioannis metro station. -or take directly the metro from the airport and change line in Syndagma square as above. As soon as you arrive at Aghios Ioannis station, take the road on your left, it is Kasomouli street. After less than 60 meters (there are traffic lights), take the road on your left again. This is Barmpanou street, where the apartment is located. Other Things to Note Daily/weekly cleaning upon request (extra charge) Private tours upon request (extra charge)
