It may not be as big as their palace, but it's still a beautiful home. The children must have loved growing up here.

Royal Homes and Palaces

I have come across some information regarding the Palace of Tatoi and wounderd if anyone out there new if this was correct or had changed since the following webpage was published in 2001.

http://www.fbarnard.org.uk/greek01/greece01.htm

According to the above webpage, Tatoi is not only closed to the public, but hard to find, railed off and guarded by police and a gaurd dog. I was woundering if this is still the case as I was under the impression from the recent Court Case over it between Constantine and the Greek Government, that Tatoi was being held for the benefit of the Greek people and was therefore open to the public. It seems rather bizzar that the Government paid Constantine all that money as oposed to giving it back to him, only to let it rot.

Thank you Splodger, for the link. The article was very interesting and the pictures, too. Earlier I had seen pictures of Tatoi only from south. It has always been my great wish to see Tatoi Palace myself.

Hi, does anyone have some information about the Royal residence or town of Psychiko. I read in the biography of Queen Sophie of Spain (born Princess of Greece) that she was born in Psychiko, but I couldn't find anything about this place. So if you can help me to find some information, thanks.....

Regards....

Hello, Phychiko is an area in Athens. Many years back most rich people lived there.At the moment it is still a good area but not what it used to be.

This looks like a fairly normal house.
It must have been very cozy :)

What a gorgeous place that seems to be going to waste. Do you know if it is still is in disrepair or if the state has any plans for it?

As far as I know,the estate remains in the same condition as on the pictures.The government hasn't announced any plans for what is planning to do yet.(Not to my knowledge anyway).

I think it is prohibided for people to enter the place....I remember though that some intruders broke the Crosses of The Royal graves, some years ago and nobody was arrested!!!(I was cursing for days)...

...My oppinion is that police cannot even guard their own posts-few days ago some bandids broke a police station in Athens and burned their cars,so,I doubt if the Tatoi Estate is properly guarded!!!It's a BIG and beautiful place,so a battalion of men with forrest motorbikes won't be enough, and i don't think that police can despose so many men!!!Greek police is also badly... payed...so i can hardly say anything ,besides I don't live in Athens!!

I can only wonder ,if the Greek state has confiscated such a big place wich is also part of the GREEK PEOPLE'S CULTURAL INHERITANCE,and keeps it unguarded,unrestored,why they have confiscated it for???

I personaly would like to see it given back to the GRF but would settle for second best as a museum of the GRF in meantime... just so long as they stop it falling apart like it is now - so sad

The Oldenburgs shouldn't take back ownership of the palace. It's the property of the Greek government and should be utilized as a museum commemorating and documenting Greece's past.

How do you like the idea, of turning your house into a museum of local natural history and place yourself onto a chair, under the script writting MAMAL???!! :p
