A modern gem in the unbeatable Plaka! A very spacious and luxurious brand new apartment (constructed May 2016), ideally placed in the most beautiful part of Plaka, the oldest neighborhood of Athens, and just a few steps away from the entrance of the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum.
While in the center of the city, the privacy of the secluded inner courtyard offers the calmness and peacefulness you will need after the long hours of sightseeing.. A true tranquil escape from a hectic day!!
Only by living in the Plaka can you sense the ambiance of the old city! This will make your entire experience priceless!
The house lies on top of the Ancient Street of the Tripods, a historic route that connected the Theater of Dionysus next to the Acropolis to the Athenian Agora, which made it the favorite “promenade” of the Athenians in ancient Greece. Significant parts of this ancient street were discovered during construction excavations that took place when we were building the house. To reveal these discoveries, the entrance floor has been covered with glass making it transparent to the antiquities below.
When I started constructing this new apartment in the beginning of 2016 I was planning to move in myself. It has a very modern decoration with light grey and white walls, hidden ceiling lighting and glass furniture.
Everything inside the apartment is of very high standards, with wooden window frames and double glazed windows.
Some original artwork mounted on the walls belong to a Greek painter, who is the father of a friend of mine.
The bedroom has a very comfortable King size bed, a sofa, a TV, a bluetooth speaker and a lot of drawers!
The open plan kitchen is fully equipped and the living room has two large sofas (2 meters each) that could serve also as a single bed, a 50inch TV and an office area. Sitting on the sofa, you can look out the window and see the rock of the Acropolis, which is only a few steps away!
The bathroom is also very modern with a large shower area and glass doors that separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom whenever necessary.
There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer available 24 hours
A baby park is available upon request
Guests can enjoy the tranquility of the inner courtyard
Interaction with guests
I love to give my guests recommendations about my favorite restaurants, cafes, bars and also all the must sees and dos in Athens (for short or longer stays) and also help organize trips outside Athens (in the mainland and the islands)
I could also arrange for airport transfers, restaurant reservations and anything else needed.
* In Greece we have a problem with our plumbing. The Greek pipes get easily clogged as they are half the size of those in most other countries. Please do not throw any toilet paper in the toilet!!
*Please be responsible with the use of air-conditioning and electricity by turning the A/C units and lights off when when you are out of the apartment
*Depending on availability flexible check in or check out is possible

Hope to host you soon!
