Sculptural Plasticity. On the summit of the hill, lays a sculptural two storied residence, that has its back elevation towards the northern entrance, with sparse openings to accentuate privacy and elemental protection.
Curves, lack of straight verticality, protrusions and horizontal cavities team with a cream rough stucco to differentiate the shell. The residence is in fact a compound comprising of the main building, two independent, self-sufficient guesthouses, a stone – walled outdoors courtyard (closing the north side) supporting the outdoor dining’s pergola and the pool which unifies the lot. The brick and the concrete two – storey house sits heavy on its base; the considerable wall depth leads to deep – set openings that frame the views and justifies the porticoes at the front elevation since their supporting columns are 70 x 70 cm thick.
As far as the interior outline goes, the ground floor is separated into three equal areas: the open plan kitchen and the dinning room, a large domed entrance hall with the staircase at its back and the sitting room which, touching the inside corner of the pool, enriches its interior with the element of the water.
The master bedroom opens up to a central atrium at first floor level, under a pergola; an enclosed corridor linking master to auxiliary room protects from northern winds. This volume withdrawal liberates a terrace behind the ground floor canopy. The bathroom can be seen from behind the bead head, through a sculpted screen. Internal floors are laid with ochre – tinted cement except for the bedrooms, kitchen and sitting areas, where floors are laid with wide pine-boards encased in cement lining. The atrium and terrace floors are laid with dark sturdy wood boards. Ceilings are plaster – board with encased spotlights providing a series of atmospheres according to moods and function. Furniture is minimalist and sparse, fittings are built – in and the overall interior accentuates the island environment through its sea – framing openings, appearing extroverted and scape – appreciative.
Villa with full of positive energy: 1 living room (on right side), 2 master bedrooms air-conditioned (upper) with balcony between them and big balcony at the front of the right master bedroom, with wonderful view (baths en suite), 1 dinning room with open plan kitchen. There is also a big basement with billiard, 1 bedroom and bathroom.
The pool holds all the south side of main house in L shape. It likes living on a quite blue lake. The pool touches the living room giving the sense of living in an island. The water of Jacuzzi falls down the pool through a water channel. The pool is 12 m x 5 m embracing the front side veranda. There is a window with security glass inside the pool enlightening with aqua color the basement.
View in Delos on sunsets. The happiness is: to take your long drink, evening tea or coffee, looking to Delos on sunset or to make meditations in this wonderful balcony.
It’s so romantic and quite place.
Permit Number: ON THE PROCESS
The apartment was great. A well equiped new kitchen, a good bed, a washingmachine, a big balcony, a very nice view (6th floor) and always a hot shower. There are nice details in the apartment, like old wooden doors and carpets. Lina and ms. Panagoti are very friendly and helpfull. The apartment is near Dafni metrostation. By metro you can reach in 4-5 stops the centre of Athens and you are at Monasteraki/Plaka, Acropolis, Acropolis-museum, Roman Agora, Syntagma, Omonia en National Museum.
The on the website mentioned bus X97 to the airport didn't operate when I was there. That's no problem because there are other possible connections between the apartment and the airport (metro/train, metro/bus, taxi or transfer arranged by Lina).
A great place to stay!
The flat is very well located. Lina is very kind and very helpful. Closed too the flat you have a small shop to buy everything, where the guy speak well english! Also a good bakery! In the flat, you have everything you need. Thank you so much Lina!
Fantastic location!!! Close to public transport and all of the main neighborhoods and sights. Very nice apartment and Lina and Fanis were amazing. Always available and quick to communicate. They no longer have the washer but there is wifi! Good trade off :) just be careful because we accidentally used ours up too quickly by video chatting. Other than that, only complaint was that the neighbors threw a party one of the nights and it was SO loud it seemed they were actually in the apartment with us and they partied until 5:30 AM. Nothing that was in the control of Lina though and we still wouldn't have changed where we stayed! Thank you so much!
A nice apartment, old but clean and well preserved, in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood, close to the main attraction of Athens but not in the touristic center. Lina and Fanis were kind and helpful and the overall experience was positive. The only disadvantage is that the bed is more a 1.5 then a double bed.
Great place and a great host!! Lina was very helpful, easily reachable at anytime and willing to help out with any issues.
Lina was very kind and helpful!!
The house was in perfect state and we've really enjoyed our stay in Mykonos.
We really recommend Lina's villa as it is quiet, not far away from everything and the view is amazing!!
The apartment was great and convenient but the start of our stay was problematic. We needed to arrive late at night after travelling from the Alinossos by ferry, bus and taxi. Feeling very tired, we were met in the street by a man who did not know the right building nor how to get in. After 40 minutes and several phone calls he found the building, opened the door and we finally got in.
A point for travellers is that the parthenon is not the acropolis - the apartment is significantly further than 6 minutes from the parthenon entrance.
We had no contact with the hosts other than through the airbnb site.
Excellent location to visit Athens, just steps from the first archaeological sites.
The apartment is beautiful and functional, mini markets and a large supermarket 50 meters to 500 meters.
He only needs a refresh of paint but overall it does the job.
thank you so much Lina.
Good walk at all.
Appartement très bien situé, dans un quartier calme mais central. On y trouve tout le nécessaire de cuisine, une machine à laver, le wifi, un petit supermarché dans la rue...bref une très chouette expérience pour nos 3 jours à Athènes!
I had a great experience staying at Lina's apartment. Her and her boyfriend were very helpful, easy to contact, and easy to get answers from. My only complaint would be that the area doesn't have that many places to eat close to the apartment so we had to order delivery. It took about 15 minutes to walk to Plaka. However, the apartment was very spacious for my boyfriend and I, and we appreciated the ability to relax after a long time traveling. Thanks again, definitely recommend this place to other travelers!
