Artemi or Artemida or Artemis (Greek: Άρτεμη, Αρτέμιδα, older name Loutsa, Greek: Λούτσα) is a suburban town in east Attica, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Spata-Artemida, of which it is a municipal unit.[1]

It lies approximately 25 km east of Athens, S of Rafina, NE of the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, and N of Lavrio.

The population was rural until the 1980s and the 1990s; the population became urban as suburban housing popped up around Artemida's coastline. Housing developments continue to this day and some are intermingled with farmlands or empty land.

Artemida is situated on a plain, with mountains that are covered with forests to the northwest and another deforested rocky mountain to the south, in a farm setting filled with grasslands, some pine forests, rocks and groves and some farmlands. The street system is gridded in a couple of angles aligning with the sea along with residential houses. The forests which include pine, spruce and others, along with forest roads are to the northwest and covers most of the north coast. The Petalies Gulf lies to the east.

Artemida is famous for its beach stretching over most of the east coast except for some parts, as well as for hotels, bars, restaurants and local taverns.

Other

Artemida has schools, a lyceum, a gymnasium, banks, churches, a post office, beaches and squares and 480 km of roads. The serious problem of Artemida is the tremendous increase of population, especially in the period 2001-2005. In this period the population almost doubled, and now Artemida has about 35,000 inhabitants. Also there are many thousands of people who are "part time" during the periods of Easter, Christmas and of course the summer. Another sign of increased population is that there are now more than 2,500 students at all levels of education. Loutsa has a football team too, known as AO Artemis.
