This was all we could have hoped for. We stayed almost a month and didn't get tired of the place at all --- and certainly enjoyed every minute we spent with Liana (Stella's mother and main hostess for our time) and Dimitris. We had great food prepared by Liana -- the 5 Euro breakfast is a meal for the day, and she made us several great dinners over the course of the month, each one a delight.
The space was great for our family of four and friends who stopped by for a couple of weeks. Liana took us to the metro at our convenience and it was an easy ride to any part of Athens. We walked from the cottage to the zoo (It's really good!) and to the malls just for a stroll on days we didn't go to Athens . Liana drove us to a nice beach about four times, and also to amazing ancient sites off the beaten path.
It was a great relaxing setting for our family, and we loved the family far more than the really fine accommodations. I cannot imagine anyone being less than completely satisfied. Friends are going there on our recommendation, and we are certain that they will have as good a time as we did.
This isn't even to mention the airport pickup, and every other assistance that Liana was eager to provide. Great, great, great!
I thought about adding photos, but the photos provided are completely accurate and I didn't have any that showed the place better.
Dear friends, it was a pleasure meet a family like yours, so adorable and so friendly!! Hope to see you again soon! Many many kisses to the girls, and thank you very much! We have a lovely time with you too!!! Liana and family.

We had a lovely time in the cottage. It provides more than what is said on the advert.It has a big garden and a spacious environment. Liana and family are lovely, kind and hospitable people. They love to have people around and as frequent travellers, this is the first place my family and i felt soo welcome. She makes lovely dishes and her cottage is cosy, big, clean and well equiped. Its a great place for children too and very close to amenities. Its highly recommended and we will be there again in the near future. I would love to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to liana,her husband, Dimitris and Stella for an unforgettable Holiday. You are all great people!!! God bless you all.

I've been at Steliana's cottage at June,me and my family,(3 adults and 2 kids).
The cottage is beautiful,very clean, and is impressive that is all decorate with original art.
The bedrooms have the romantic style of all the house.
The garden is simply amazing,and we have spent a great time, all day long!
The kids were swimming at the swimming pool and they had a great time!
All the family of Steliana's cottage is very pleasant and cheerful.
Liana,the host of the cottage,cooked for us many times, various greek dishes (i still remember her Musakà).She's an excellent cook!
The breakfast was great, with fresh eggs from the chickens,fresh bread made every day from Liana, and a lot of excellent products made in the cottage!Simply amazing(included in the price)
The house is in a strategic area, because is near the airport of athens,near the sea,near the metro station (Steliana's family took us to the station for free) and is near acropole of athens,where you can visit all the museums!
It's also near the attica Zoo,where my kids where excited to see all these animals.And is also near the biggest mall of athens.
We have a great time.
