I just returned from two weeks spent in Eleni's lovely place. The studio flat was just perfect for my needs, extremely clean, cozy, great wi-fi and equipped with the basics to cook that homemade meal you need the rare time you are too tired to pop out for an always lush greek dinner. Located in a quiet residential area the place was very close (just few minutes away on my bycicle) to the buzzy citycentre, full of bars and restaurants where nice and surprisingly cheap good food was available at any time.
Eleni, who lives just the floor below, was incredibly caring and helpful from even before my arrival (trying to help me finding a bycicle) to the last minute of my stay (she kindly drove me to the bus station sparing me a taxi ride!). Although she did understand minimal English, we have been able to communicate well either through translating phone apps (which was good fun) or through a friendly family friend who assists her dealing with English speaking guests, who besides speaking perfect English was always available and happy to help!
Linens were provided and changed for fresh one after a week I stayed there and the nice treats like chocolate cake, cold water melon and ice cream made me feel like when I return home to visit my family in Italy and I am well looked after!
Lastly but possibly most importantly, Eleni's mum was living just nextdoor. She reminded me so much of my grandmother and made me the best Greek coffee! Despite speaking different languages I was able to appreciate her warmth and caring nature as she even took care of my laundry!
