This is a very nice place for a picnic, a walk or just to get some fresh air. There is plenty of space for pets too. In my view the problems (and reason it took only three stars) is: Not enough parking space (Sundays are a nightmare), very poor connecting roads with the city (amplifying the first problem) jams on Sundays are common, absolutely nill maintenance (trash laying around is a common sight and downgrade the whole experience).This place was once a royalty's country estate. It doesn't reflect that anymore.

Essentially a country estate with some residential relic cum agrotouristic interest of sorts. 440 hectare the full area, much less the royal domain. Comprising a 'resting hill' where the graves of the dynasty are studded - pine-cypress + woodland, The domain is unique in size for the hellenic standards. It is enormous in that sense and allows for walking, trekking, possibly picnicking. The inner variety and scenic element is of merit but not dramatic. The former royal built structures are ill maintained and not of great interest, a country lodge of sorts that could refer to a minor dignitary in Serbia or Rumania. Little or no art, austere in that sense but not out of choice or deliberation but out of little culture, elegance or history of the royal family itself. Views of the Parnitha range can be stunning en route. The historic element goes back to the classical times with Dekelia but little is extand or retained in a museum sense. Prospects in that direction remain to materialise.

A hidden game in the northern suburban part of Athens, the former palace of the King of Greece is worth a visit both for its historic past and amazing sceneries. A restoration process has started in the last few years and the routes are pretty easy to follow but this has the potential of becoming an amazing place to visit if the right actions take place. Running through it will give you a boost of energy as you can imagine how this place looked back in the day.

In a very beautiful location, just a few minutes away from Athens. Many swirling paths into nature and a feeling of travelling into the past. If only this place could be lightened up again through the renovation it deserves! It would definitely be one of the ultimate choices for a family walk in Greece!

Off the beaten track, just out of Athens, this is the site of the summer palace of the former royal family of Greece. Parts of it have been restored but more needs to be done. Currently the best thing it offers are fantastic forest walk and a glimpse of what the place would have been like in its hay day. However, broken benches and swings, lack of bins and disrespectful visitors mar the site.
