I was born in Cairo Egypt and both of my parents moved there from the beautiful Greek Island of Chios located in the northern part of Mediterranean Sea. At the age of 7 the whole family moved to Athens Greece and I lived there for a long time. After my Bachelor's degree from the University of Athens in Finance, I worked for 35 years for the National Bank of Greece, the country’s largest Commercial Bank, in many positions in Greece as well as overseas In Europe, USA, Canada and South Africa.
During the years of my employment, we used to spend every summer in the house we now offer for rent. We love this privileged
Suburb and area and all the great activities it has to offer, namely the beaches and all the natural beauty all around which is the best-kept secrets of Athens for centuries. We have two children one lives in Greece and the other one in Chicago. My wife and I love swimming,
Beach side walking, reading books, seeing movies in the 4-5 open air movie theaters in the area, Greek cooking, sight seeing, helping friends especially older ones with errands among other activities and traveling in Greece and abroad. We have entertained many friends at our house and if you come to stay with us, you will want to return for more wonderful fun-filled days.
We would love to be your host and provide a unique holiday for you and your family. We would like to welcome you as well.
