Voula as alternative to Glyfada

Hi!

What is Voula like as an alternative to Glyfada? Which are the best hotels there? How far is it from the airport? Are there good sandy beaches there?

Regards

It depends on what you want. To my opinion Voula is much nicer than Glyfada because it is less crowded, it is closer to much nicer beaches(although dont expect to find a wonderful beach in Athens), and it is still close to Glyfada. Vouliagmeni is also even nicer.

How much money do you want to spend for a hotel because those areas are quite expensive!

All of those places are not more far away from the airport than most of the areas you could stay in Athens. Depending on the hour of the day, it shouldnt take you more than 30 minutes to get there by cab.

Thanks for the responses.

alexpingu, regarding your query I would say a hotel giving a Double Bedroom at about 100 per night. Regards

Sorry, that should have read 100 EUROS per night - at a hotel in Vouliagmeni, or Glyfada or Voula. Regarding distance from the airport, I thought they might be at marginally closer than hotels in the centre of Athens.

We were in Athens for 4 days in June this year on the way back from Crete where we spent a week. We were hoping to spend a week in Corfu in June 2008, stopping in Athens only for the night in order to take a flight the next morning. So I thought these seaside locations would provide a good option to central Athens. What would you say?

Hi!

Well, our airport (Athens) used to be near the beach..it no longer is!

However, because the summer time is much nicer to spend at the seaside areas of Athens, it is a good choice to book there...u could use public transportation then (our new electric railway train - great sightseeing opportunity) to go to the center of Athens in apporx. 45' from Glyfada--

And from the airport Voula would be about 30' by TAXI, considered close, that is...
