Margarita’s apartment is the perfect home when you visit Athens. Cool interior and lots of space, and the best – huge balcony with incredible view of Downtown and the Acropolis. Bring a bottle of wine on your way home from a day in the city and enjoy the sunset from the balcony. It’s breathtaking!
She is super friendly and helpful with everything. I will come back anytime!
Worth mentioning about going to Athens:
I would recommend coming to Athens before or after you visit one of the islands or the south beaches of Athens. Then you can explore the city life and all Athens has to offer, without worrying about your lack of tan.
PS: if you stay in Margarita’s apartment you get both morning and evening tan on your private balcony….
In august almost everything is closed because of public holiday. The best time is probably May/June and September/October.
