The dates from September to May apply to the beach house in Potidea, HALKIDIKI.
Charming central flat in lovely Thessaloniki, Greece (AND beach flat in Potidea, Halkidiki available SEPTEMBER 2021 - also for non simultaneous exchange)
Welcome to our home! We live in a 75m² lovely, playful, bright apartment in the historic center of the city. Walking distance to all major attractions, buses and trains!!! There is one large bedroom that we share with our almost 3year old daughter (1 double bed 160x200 + 1 large single bed 120x190), but if you are travelling without young children we can easily remove the single bed. In the living room there is a very comfortable double sofa bed that can accomodate 2 people. Also in the apartment there is: fully equipped kitchen, bathroom w/shower, washer/dryer, air condition, free wi-fi, large screen TV (with sattelite connection and multilingual programs), loads of baby and toddler toys and books (some in english) , sound/temperature-proof double-glass windows. In spite the super central location, our apartment overlooks a pedestrian street therefore ensuring a calm & noise-free stay. Impressive balcony view, right underneath, to park with the city's trademarks: the historic Byzantine monuments of Galerious arch and the Rotunda! The beautiful flowers at the balcony do not need care because of the automatic watering system but the 2 super friendly (healthy fully vaccinated) kitties will need a minimun amount of your attention.
--We can also provide a beach apartment in Potidea, Halkidiki right by the beach (Ideal for Easter vacation!! It's difficult to find dates for the summer but not impossible). Potidea is only 40mins away by car fron Thessaloniki and only 20mins from the airport. It's a two bedroom apartment (sleeps 5 persons) with living room/kitchen and a small bathroom and balcony.--
THESSALONIKI is the city you will fall in love with! It is the 2nd largest city in Greece located in the north of our beloved sunny country. It's quiter than busy Athens and yet pleasantly alive by day & night. Being the base of Greece's largest univeristy (Aristotle University) with its campus located downtown, the city enjoys a unique atompsphere of youthful liveliness. Take advantage of the warm weather and explore (either on foot or by rented bicycles!) the 5kms of the gorgeous newly renovated waterfront with its parks and the impecable sea view with the legendary Mount Olympus on the horizon. The waterfront is around 7mins walking distance from our apartment!
We take pride in our traditional northern cuisine so don't be surprised by the countless lovely restaurants, cafes & bars that you will find in every corner. For those interested in art and history there is a lot to see! The city's museums, the ancient walls and castle, the old city (Ano Poli: literally meaning Upper City) and the Byzantine monuments in the historic center will not leave you dissapointed. And when the sun goes down, you can take a stroll in the unique Ladadika area to check out the city's night life!
