Location: Greece

The Margi hotel is a member of Trésor Hotels and is considered to be one of the best boutique hotels in Athens. It is an elegant boutique ‘home away from home’ on the lush green Vouliagmenis peninsula about 30 minutes from Athens centre. Surrounded by nature’s green and caressed by the Athenian sea shore, the Margi makes you forget that you are in a European capital. It engulfs you within its “island” tempo, at the same time you are very close to central Athens.

The rooms here are compact but with beautiful views. Those facing to the back of the hotel are quiet with no road noise. Candle lit interiors give the whole hotel a romantic ambiance. The beautiful pool area is in a small courtyard with canopied day-beds to lounge on. It can be quite shady which is a relief in the summer and there is a friendly and trendy bar and restaurant by the pool.

here are lovely coastal walks nearby and great restaurant. Turn Left out of the hotel and you will reach Vouliagmeni bay within 10 minutes with its beaches and beach side restaurants. If you turn right out of the hotel you will reach a closer sophisticated beach (you need to pay for this one). Further along there is a small area to bathe for free. To get to Athens you can either take a 25 minute taxi ride or you need to take a taxi to the train station (about 10 euros) and then the tram (1 euros 20) for 45 minutes to Fix stop. The Acropolis and other sites are a short stroll from here.

Unwind with the sounds of music and let the background tunes uplift your senses. Indulge to a candlelit dinner and let the ethnic melodies convey you to an exotic world far far away from the noise and bustle Athens centre.
