The area is called Cholargos and belongs to the northeast part of Athens. Being 6 km away from the city center, the district lies at the foot of the popular Hymettus Mountain.

The house is located at a beautiful and verdant neighborhood, quiet and lively at the same time. The spot is only 500 meters away from a Blue Line metro station (6 stops from the center), also accessible by buses and taxi.
