Because you’re not 20 anymore!
Is comfort no longer optional when you travel?

Want to explore it all like before but have clean  silky soft sheets, a plush firm bed and a fantastic, hot shower at the end of the day? 
Need free WiFi on your own device or ours, free international phone service to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues back home?
Are you traveling with young children (your own, or, could it be, with grandkids (where did time go?) and loath the thought of sitting in a cramped hotel room after they’ve gone to bed? Wouldn’t you rather be enjoying a night with an Acropolis view, a glass of wine or cup of tea, your older children, friends and your spouse or partner?  Don’t you wish that some days, after touring all day, you could just stretch out on the couch or put your feet up and lean back in an easy chair and flip channels on the TV while the kids amuse themselves with games and movies? 
Have dinner delivered to your door – not on a rolling tray with a big fat Greek invoice at the end, but at a reasonable, “locals” price?

Would you like to visit Athens, Greece knowing you’ve got a friend in town?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions – contact Carole at Greek Vacation Rentals BEFORE you start planning your trip to Greece. Our 3, 4 and 5 bedroom American style penthouses and homes in downtown Athens are the perfect base for exploring – but their popularity means the early planner gets the first choice in dates, and wouldn’t you like to be that person?

With your dates locked in, your new found friends in Greece will help you plan a truly memorable Greek odyssey that fits yours and your family or friend’s travel style and pace. Call us now for limited August and September dates – but better yet it’s time to think about planning for 2011 – prime June and July dates are already booked in our largest apartment. (Hint: Athens is a fantastic base for a family reunion).

By Athensguide

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
