My husband and I stayed at St Thomas Bed and Breakfast, Athens for one night before we flew back home after four and half weeks Greek Island hopping. We chose St Thomas as it was very close to Athens airport and as we were arriving late in the afternoon and leaving around lunch the next day, we did not want to stay in the centre of Athens. Janet the owner met us at the airport and drove us to her accommodation which is like a little English garden oasis set back off the road. There are 3 rooms to cater for one, two or three people and even a family. Our ample breakfast was taken out in the garden on the patio or you could have it under the shady trees if you wish. Also, there is a lovely swimming pool to cool you down in with sundeck lounges and seating if you just wanted to relax. The garden is a beautiful place to while away the time. We chose the Wisteria room and had a king size bed, TV, fridge, chairs and coffee table, divan, bathroom with toiletries and plenty of space to move around. Wi fi connection is available in the room also. There is a taverna next door but as it was a holiday, it was closed so Janet offered to drive us to the village taverna and pick us up when we had finished. Janet was on hand to answer our questions and if you needed a lift to the station, she would take you. Nothing was too much trouble. Instead of a taxi to the airport, Janet offered to take us there for a nominal fee. We highly recommend St Thomas Bed and Breakfast as the place to stay if you only have a short stopover in Athens.
