Hotels rarely create a home-like feeling to me, since I only use them to sleep. But, I pay great attention to the behavior of people working at hotels. In that respect, “Thimaras” Hotel on Spetses is really really nice and cosy and the staff is extra kind.

Eternal summer, long walks at the Athens centre (no matter what), the Acropolis (yes, I do love the sight of it every morning), good looking men.(i agree Thalia!)
10. which is your favorite spot of the city you live?
It would have to be Filopappos Hill. It is amazing how, although in the middle of the city centre, once you get on it, you feel as if you have transferred somewhere out of space and human time. I simply love it..........
