Description

Tatoi Royal Estate located 27 km from the city center of Athens (30 minutes drive) was once the summer retreat of King George and Queen Olga, before being converted to the royal family’s permanent residence in 1948. In years past, Tatoi was one of the most magical areas in Greece. Its dense forests were home to red deer, roe deer, wild boars and other smaller animals. The estate was also home to vineyards, vegetable gardens, large expanses of citrus trees and extensive olive groves. The estate s structures included stables for the horses and other animals, a winery, an oil mill. The palace building was an elegant two-storey building with charming terraces and a tiled roof that was once adorned by an ornate cornice. Nowadays although abandoned the area is still beautiful. Dense forests overgrown with Aleppo pine trees, tall cypresses, poplars, plane trees, beech trees, Greek strawberry trees, olive trees, and citrus trees among others adorn the Tatoi estate.
