HOW TO GET TO AROKARIAPARTMENTS AND GET IN CONTACT WITH YOUR REFERENT
To arrive and stay at our apartments it is first necessary to have a car or motorcycle. If you have a GPS navigator or have the ability to use the Google Maps app on your mobile phone, the first thing you need to do is enter our coordinates which are:
36°49’15.2″N ; 21°55’52.4″E or 36.820885 ; 21.931216
However, GPS systems can recommend roads that are not suitable for reaching us comfortably.
For this reason, we recommend that you enter the coordinates of the Charakopiò municipal car park (after the Church of San Giorgios) where you will meet one of the staff to accompany you to your accommodation. The coordinates of the Charakopiò Market Square are:
36°48’29”N ; 21°54’57”E or 36.808056 ; 21.915833
When you reach the village of Petalidi, send us a text or a message on WhatsApp or Viber at +30 698 666 5856 indicating your name and the words “WE HAVE ARRIVED IN PETALIDI“
When you arrive at the village of Charakopiò reach the municipal parking lot immediately after the Church of San Giorgios. There will be a person from the AROKARIAPARTMENTS staff who will be waiting for you to accompany you to the apartment. You will recognize him because he will be wearing a T-shirt with the writing STAFF AROKARIA.APARTMENTS. He will give you the keys and show you everything you need to fully enjoy the hospitality of AROKARIAPARTMENTS.
If you do not have any GPS instrument, follow the instructions below:
