This sunny apartment is in the Acropolis/Koukaki neighborhood (one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Athens) and just minutes from Acropolis, Plaka, and Filopappou Hill.

The location is ideal-it is a 3-minute walk from the Sygrou-Fix metro stop and a 10-minute walk from the Acropolis metro stop. Less than 1 minute from the house there are many tavernas, cafes, bakeries, bars and just up the street is the Open Air Bus Tour stop. You have easy access to all main tourist sites.

The space
Renovated in November 2016, this apartment features an updated bathroom, kitchen, studio and loft and appliances. Using principles from the Tiny House movement to maximize the space (the apartment is only 25 meters) , this charming studio+ loft can sleep up to 4 people.

Please note the space is small (imagine a hotel room). There are mattresses for 4, but 4 adults may feel crowded. This space is ideal for families or couples.

Kitchen: new dishwasher, microwave/oven, build in refrigerator, marble counters.

Bathroom: modern shower, toilet, sink, marble counter tops

Studio: track lighting with dimmers, double bed (sleeps 2), TV with cable

Loft: loft with new flooring, a built in window making the space bright and two twin mattresses (sleeps 2).

The apartment is near the entrance to the building (up one short flight of stairs). You may hear some traffic from the building and from the street outside.

Guest access
The entire apartment is available for guest access.

Other things to note
I'm a Kundalini Yoga teacher so I'd like to invite you to try any of my classes during your stay. You can find us at Lynnskundaliniyoga on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

I've also written a book! It is called Headstart for Happiness and you can find it on Amazon. You will also find a copy of the book in the studio to read during your stay. :-)

Getting to the apartment:
From the airport, the two easiest options are a) the metro b) a taxi

Metro: The metro leaves directly across the street from the airport and costs 10 euros per person. You will take the blue line metro from the airport to Syntagma. Get off at Syntagma, change to the red line going towards “Elliniko”. Go two stops (Acropolis and Sygrou-Fix) and get off at the second stop (Sygrou-Fix). When you walk up from the metro stop, take the stairs marked “Sygrou-Drakou”. The apartment is a 3-minute walk from the Sygrou-Fix metro as follows:
1) walk up Drakou and cross Veiko
2) continue veering slightly left to stay on Drakou (at the vegetable store) to Zaharitsa.
3) The apartment is on the corner of Zaharitsa and Drakou.

Taxi
If you take a taxi, it is a flat rate from the airport (38 euros) from 5:00 am to 12:00 am and 54 euros from 12:00 am to 5:00 am. Most, but not all taxi drivers speak English. Some cab drivers charge a euro or two per bag but you can confirm this before getting into the cab. These is a taxi stand directly outside the airport. If you want us to arrange for a taxi to pick you up, just let us know. We work with several reliable taxi drivers, and there is no extra cost to have them come to the airport for you.

Location

Athina, Greece

The neighborhood is called Koukaki and it borders Acropolis. It is a wonderful mix of traditional Greek tavernas and cafes with easy access to all major tourist attractions in Athens. This is one of the trendiest/coolest neighorboods in Athens.

One of the best bakeries in Athens is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment (Takis Bakery at 14 Misaraliotou st.). Other restaurants/bars within walking distance to check out include:
--Σκουμπρί (Skoubri) Fish Taverna at Drakou 12: 2 minute walk
--Ρίζα Ρίζα (Riza Riza) Bar at Drakou 19: 2 minute walk
--Brettos in Plaka at Kidathineon 41 (this is the second oldest distillery in Europe and a cool stop with its colorful bottles as a backdrop): 10 minute walk
--the Wine Point at Porinou 2 in Acropolis: 8 minute walk

A nice first full day from the apartment might be:
•Go to Takis Bakery (closed Sundays) to get something for breakfast, go across the street to Coffee Dive for your coffee and then take a leisurely walk up the Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian walkway to the Open Air Bus. Take the 90 minute ride and return to the base of Acropolis.
•Go the Acropolis Museum
•Walk to Makrygianni pedestrian walkway or Plaka for lunch and shopping, then go up to Acropolis main site before it closes.
