Greece, South, Attica, Peristeri-Athens
Alan Rogers Review
Camping Athens is an all-year site, located in the west of the city and convenient for visiting Athens. In fact the Acropolis is only 10 km away, with a bus stop opposite the site entrance (public transport works well, so don’t plan to drive into the city centre yourself). It may be a city campsite but the pitches are of a reasonable size and are generally well shaded by olive, cypress and palm trees, which create the feeling of being in a kind of lush oasis within the city. Be sure to plan your visit programme in advance as the city can be hot during mid afternoon in summer and the traffic may be heavy.
The site prides itself on friendly Greek hospitality and offers 66 touring pitches, all with 16A electricity connections. Smaller pitches are available for tents. The two toilet blocks are of modern design and well maintained. The site’s restaurant is most welcoming after a day’s sightseeing, and a selection of Greek starters, helped along by chilled wine, can be thoroughly recommended.
Two modern toilet blocks. Washing machines. Shop. Bar. Takeaway food and restaurant (all May-Oct). Excursions can be arranged. Barbecues and open fires are forbidden. Free WiFi over site.
From north (Thessaloniki/Lamia) E75 signed Athina-Pireas, turn right for second exit towards Korinthos. Site is on right after 2.2 km. and well signed. From south (Peloponissos) take No. 8 road (Athina-Pireas). Continue towards Athens, site is 2.7 km. after Dafni Monastery.Link to campsite location map on google
