The house is located in Voula which is an area considered to be the Athens Riviera. The fabulous mild maritime climate, the sandy beaches, the calmness of the Mediterranean landscape with its pine and palm trees and the cosmopolitan aura are the elements that characterize the area.

While the house is situated in a remote neighborhood, there is a wide variety of entertainment and restaurant choices, ranging from Greek traditional tavernas to the most exotic ethnic ones. Almost all of these are by the sea, offering a relaxing atmosphere during the day and a romantic one at night. And for those who prefer a more croudy and noisy place there is always the nearby Glyfada (5km away) known for its shopping and entertainment center. If on the other hand someone prefers to spend time at home, the local super market is just 5 min. walk away.

Less than a mile away there is the famous Vouliagmeni Lake (a natural brackish lake with healing properties), while the all famous historical Athens city center, the stunning Cape Sounion archeological site and the airport are all 20 minutes drive away. The general area can cater to any culinary wish and a variety of sports installations (tennis and golf courts, gym, surfing and water-sports  etc) can keep you fit and busy.
