Hellenic Riding Club
The Hellenic Riding Club
The Hellenic Riding Club, founded in 1931, is the oldest in Greece, aiming to cultivate the art of equestrianism and love for horses. The privately owned facilities of the Hellenic Equestrian Club combine equestrian tradition and modern infrastructure only at a short distance from Athens city centre. Both the site and the club's operation have been declared preservable. Still, its state-of-the-art equipment can cater to the demands of any event, ranging from children's parties and special wedding receptions to private parties and high-end corporate meetings. The visitors get fascinated by the verdant environment, experiencing a different yet appealing lifestyle far from the urban pulse.
The Hellenic Equestrian Club facilities include two beautiful rooms, "Petrino" and "Aethrio," a foyer and a beautiful garden. Petrino is mainly distinguished by the apt use of stone and wood, blending harmoniously with the surroundings. On the other hand, Aethrio's opening roof and privileged position that allows for a view of the garden and the racecourse make it perfect for summer escapes. Both spaces are flanked by the spacious, uniquely decorated foyer boasting a marble fireplace that exudes a bygone era's glamour. The facilities can accommodate 40 to 350 guests.
