Akrata escape-5p,5' from beach
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Akrata is a coastal area that covers all the demands of the visitor for food and entertainment.
In a distance of 100m. from the apartment you will find an amazing beach with its crystal clear water.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor of a 3-floor building, built in 2000. There are 2 bedrooms , one with one double bed and another with 2 single ones. There is a 5th bed in the living room area, which is quite spacious with added kitchen with fitted cupboards and electric oven and refrigerator. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, pots and glasses, table and chairs for 5 people.
There is one bathroom with bathtub and a washing machine. There are 2 spacious balconies where you can sit for a morning breakfast or an evening meal.
The apartment is lightly furnished, there is also a couch that can be used as a bed as well as it unfolds and could provide space for another couple.
It is a very quite neighbourhood in the winter. While in the summer it is more busy as it is only 2 blocks from the coastal street with the beach and cafes and restaurants. There are also 2 hotels very close with swimming pools and a hairdresser and an internet cafe near by.
The tavern that I would suggest is the fishtavern 'Labros' and the restaurant Beggera that are also in walking distance. There is always the option to have delivery food brought to the apartment as well.
Not to mention that there is a supermarket in 1min walking distance from the apartment.
The area offers special pleasure with its natural beauties and gives the chance, for short excursions at the settlements of the municipality and the beautiful villages of Nonakrida, which are located scattered on the slopes of Chelmos. Going up to Chelmos slopes, in a distance of 3km from Akrata, you will find the Monastery of Agia Triada, built in 1600 A.C.In an altitude of 800m. there is Tsivlou lake, a presence of an important eco-cultural value. All the villages have its own history such as Agridi with Nikolaos Souliotis in 1821, Solo with Golfo's fountain and the tower of Souliotis. Zarouchla is last beautiful village of Chelmos mountain, with its wonderful wood. At Chelmos you will also find Styga water falls where Thetis the mother of Achilles according to Greek Mythology, had dipped the infant Achilles in the river Styx, holding onto him by his heel, and he became invulnerable where the waters touched him -- that is, everywhere but the areas covered by her thumb and forefinger -- implying that only a heel wound could have been his downfall.
You should also visit the ancient theatre of Aigeira. Very close you will find the popular Vouraikos gorge which leads to historical Kalavryta and the ski center.
You can pass it through by the famous rack railway Odontotos or for trekking it is a great course.
You can reach Akrata, either by car in 2h distance from Athens, or by railway up to the station 'Kiato' and then take the bus to Akrata or a taxi. In 2014 the opening of the railway station 'Akrata' is expected.
