The Greek capital, despite the vast territory and seemingly chaotic location of numerous areas, has many advantages, the largest of which, especially in the hot summer days, is the proximity to the sea – to the famous ‘Athenian Riviera’, which is only half an hour’s drive from the city center. Having rent a car at Athens Airport, you would be able to visit this place as many times as you wish, with no worry about the bus timetable.
Numerous beaches, located along the Saronic Gulf, starting from the southern suburbs of Athens, up to Cape Sounion, represent an impressive beauty of natural landscapes. Due to its easy accessibility (from the city center), the Athenian Riviera is an ideal place for walking and swimming, as well as for the marine sports, with all relevant infrastructure. You can walk along small coves, while making purchases in modern shopping centers, dine on the beach or have fun in the coastal clubs, famous for their hilarious pastime.
Glyfada is considered one of the most elegant and refined suburbs of the Greek capital. It is not only the largest of the suburbs to the south of Athens, but also the area of residence of the richest and most famous Athenians – the stars of pop music, literature and sports. There is a significant number of trendy nightclubs, restaurants and bars with exquisite menus in this suburb. It is built up with expensive fashionable villas and is famous for its sandy beaches, which were awarded with the ‘Blue Flag’. The yacht port in Glyfada has four berths from 130 to 300 meters in length. The most elegant and trendy shops are located in Glyfada on the streets of Pandora, Kipros, Labrak and Metaxa.
Glyfada stands out against other resorts not only for its delightful beaches, full of dazzling sunlight and decorated with date palms, but also for the bright glitter of its nightlife. You can get immeasurable pleasure from the sandy beaches with wonderful water, and have fun in the famous clubs of the area.
Elegant villas, stylish shops, popular restaurants and fashionable hotels – all together make up a magnificent picture, combining the beauty of nature with luxury and comfort, giving visitors unforgettable moments of relaxation and unique impressions.
In the famous golf club of Glyfada, designed in 1962 by Donald Harradine, you can get a huge pleasure from playing golf on the field, which meets international standards. Surrounded by huge cypresses, pine trees, olive and fig trees, Glyfada’s golf course is offering 18 holes for the golfers to have engrossing game. The Glyfada Golf Course has even hosted the World Cup Tournament in 1979 and the PGA Senior Greek Open (2014-2017).
No matter you come for the golf experience or for the warm beaches, you would be definitely fond of these two Glyfada luxurious hotels.
