Unexpected events happen in life! Do not let them ruin your vacation. We have, unfortunately, heard some sad cancellation stories this year, no one plans to get sick, lose a loved one or be forced to cancel because of work. But sometimes interruptions occur that one would never imagine – weather related delays, lost luggage, missed connections … anything can happen to cause the best made plans to go wrong. And after 7 years in the vacation rental business, I can tell you it DOES happen.
Last year a volcano cloud shut down all of Europe, and travelers were stuck all over the place (although the Athens airport remained open during the volcano eruption, inbound and outbound flights to & from many places were impacted). Those who purchased insurance received refunds, those who didn’t lost not only their holiday, but the money they’d paid for it.

PLEASE protect yourself.
There are a number of trip insurance companies that can protect your vacation investment. Search rates from several reputable companies on this website. They each have their own policies and coverage and there are probably many others out there. Get a quote to see how affordable it really is.

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!
