Vari – Voula – Vouliagmeni

Only a half an hour distance from the center of Athens, the port of Piraeus and “Eleftherios Venizelos” airport, at one of the most beautiful parts of the “Athens Riviera”, is where the Municipality of Vari Voula Vouliagmeni is located.

Coming from Piraeus, we meet Voula, a lovely area with parks and athletic centers, where the visitor may walk or bike ride along the seaside, or visit the inner area for shopping, food and coffee. The area also hosts the Nautical Athletic Club of Voula, one of the most important and active Sailing Clubs of Attica with its own port facilities, where visitors can have fun enjoying water sports activities.

Leaving Voula, and turning at Varis – Koropiou Avenue, the visitor finds the area of “Vlachika”, a place full of Greek taverns of traditional tastes and barbeque dishes as well as dairy products.

Going South from Voula, we reach the area of Vouliagmeni. Here the options are countless! Numerous beaches for all tastes and Vouliagmeni Lake with its thermal springs. There are several choices for food and drink, from the fish taverns at Kavouri area to mainstream restaurants, gelaterias and coffee shops at Laimos and Vouliagmeni areas. Two nautical clubs offer lessons and water sports activities. On the hill over Vouliagmeni Lake the area named “Faskomilia” is ideal for trekking and mountain bike.

Continuing the coastal road we find Varkiza a beautiful area that looks like an island. Varkiza has a beautiful little fisherman’s harbor, sandy beaches, rest areas and a nice promenade along the coastline. As an area next to the sea it also has an organized Nautical Club specializing on water sports such as sailing, wind surf, canoe – kayak and Stand Up Paddle (SUP).

The Municipality of Vari Voula Vouliagmeni is the area where the ancient municipalities of Anagyrus and Aixonides Halae were situated, with findings and archeological sites such as the Temple of Apollon Zoster, the Tombs of Vari and the Acropolis of Lathouriza.
