Direct access to the sea, uncongested housing, the coastline’s revamp and careful town planning are factors that have established Athens’ southern suburbs as privileged areas offering top-quality living standards.
Athens’ coastal section covering Voula and Vouliagmeni, in particular, is regarded as one of the finest parts of the southern suburbs, its appeal establishing the area as a holiday destination long before swimming in the wider area was as popular as it is today.
Developed on the Saronic Gulf coast, 25 km from the centre of Athens, Voula has been inhabited since antiquity. Development of the district’s modern version began in the 1920s, purely as a holiday area. Voula gradually began to also gain a local population, which rose sharply from the 1980s onwards. A tram line terminal situated in Voula is directly linked with central Athens’ Syntagma Square.
Vouliagmeni is also situated on the Saronic Gulf, directly opposite an islet named Fleves, at a 17-km distance from the centre of Athens. Vouliagmeni, too, emerged as a holiday area, but its beauty quickly also began attracting permanent residents. Despite the urbanisation of recent decades, Vouliagmeni’s character has been preserved, while the area’s beaches are consistently awarded blue-flag ratings for their clean waters, clean coastline and safety. Vouliagmeni nowadays ranks as the most up-market district of all the southern suburbs and is one of Europe’s most expensive areas.
