The Space

Welcome!
we are proud to announce that our listing is been selected in the Top 20's by airbnb in Hellas.
:)
our home, is a 2 floor house (you get the whole 2nd floor) of neoclassical architecture, made my Ernst Ziller, and probably one of the most beautiful houses in Athens.
five minutes from Acropolis, Gazi-Keramikos ,Monastiraki
and Thission area. That means, that the house is located at a very picturesque quite neighborhood near to the sacred green hill called Philopapous. This is were the ancient Greeks were gathering for their usual social meetings. On the other side is Thissio, a traditional area with beautiful houses and welcoming restaurants and little bars, further more is Keramikos a more mainstream party area, gay-friendly, and of course 10 minutes walking you find the great hill of Acropolis.

entering through a private entrance and enjoying the little yard with the lemon trees you get the whole second floor which consists of a large bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.
of course you can always have breakfast in the terrace and see our ancient Greek treasures around the city.
We want you to enjoy your stay in our home and we will do our best to make that happen and this includes our handmade baked chocolate cakes ...in your kitchen you will find milk,coffee,corn flakes and our bio olive oil!
The kitchen is fully equipped with a refrigerator, freezer, juicer.. In addition, you will see there is a complete set of pots, pans, and dishes for your meals at home.
Clean towels are always provided for each guest.

  • This was our very first airbnb experience, and we are hooked. Sadly, Thalia was away during out stay and it would have been nice to meet in person, but her arrangements for is were flawless. The apartment is central and we found, after a day of hot, sweaty touring, that it was a comfort to return to "our Athenian home". The garden was a nice reprieve from the heat and everything was in order. The apartment has a kind of rusticated charm, but this was, for us, a welcome thing. I would indeed recommend this to you as you contemplate your trip.

  • My husband and I stayed at Thalia's house and enjoyed every minute of it. Tita, the owner, was a perfect hostees. We had the upstairs apartment with a deck. The bedroom is air conditioned and the kitchen is perfect to cook a quick meal. Coffee is supplied. There is a clothes washer but we just washed our clothes by hand and dried them on the clothes line on the deck. Astellar is the official greeter dog. There are plants everywhere which makes the home very inviting. Tita was very helpful to us by suggesting restaurants, groceries and bakeries in the area. She phoned cabs for us and suggested tours and points of interest we should visit in Athens. We went on a one day boat tour to three islands and a bus tour to Delphi. The apartment is in easy walking distance of the Acropolis which is a half or full day excursion on foot. By the time we left, it was like leaving a close personal friend, Tita. We will stay there again on our next trip to Greece. Be sure and ask Tita to see her artwork. She is extremely talented and the apartment is decorated with her work, also. This was a safe and great local neighborhood.

  • For first timers to Greece this was a wonderful experience. We got a warm welcome and great guidance. She picked some wonderful eating places for us and her directions to everything were simple to understand. The neighborhood is a mix of the beautiful old 1930's Spanish style homes, and the tacky 1960's multilevel apartments, but it feels safe. This entire home, including the rooftop apartment has been restored magnificently. It's just 1/2 way between the Acropolis and the Monastiraki Square flea market and romantic restaurants. Olive oil in the kitchen comes from her family's farm, and we brought some home with us, along with some lifelong memories.

  • This apartment was perfect for me, husband, and 7 year old. It is in the perfect non-tourist neighborhood within a 5 minute walk to the busy tourist/ pedestrian walkway leading to all the major sites. Great location, great terrace. Neighborhood cafes/ people were fantastic. Had a wonderful time! Would 100% recommend and would love to return one day.

  • Thalia House is a wonderful place from which to tour the ancient sites of Athens with the Acropolis and related sites in easy walking distance. The Athens Metro is close by for access to much of the inner city as well as Piraeus and the airport. Excellent eateries are available in easy walking distance.

    Thank you, Thalia for giving us an orientation to your neighborhood, including a food market and bakery close by, as well as the Friday fresh vegetable market.

  • We had a lovely time at Thalia's apartment in Athens. The location is perfect because you can walk to the Acropolis in a few minutes. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment is reached through a little garden and the private terrace is wonderful. Thalia is a charming host and very kind and friendly. She thoughtfully provided an umbrella for the unexpected rain. We enjoyed making Greek coffee in the morning and found all the maps useful. Thank you Thalia! We would love to go back!

  • This apartment is BEAUTIFUL and so well located. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. It was so nice to sit outside in the afternoon and enjoy the sun. The neighborhood is full of great cafes and restaurants, plus many small shops and bakeries. You can go for a stroll and see the Acropolis light up at night. Within walking distance of all the major sites, and there is a metro station nearby if you are going farther. Tita was so welcoming and nice, she had everything ready for us and was around for any questions or just to say hi. Her artwork is also very beautiful. We had a great time!

  • The house was a nice, cozy apartment, with very good showers, bed and kitchen. We had all the privacy to ourselves. The location is in Thisseo, which is near to everything by foot. Acropolis, the Ermou Shopping street are all within walking distance. There are lots of cafes and restaurants nearby.

    Thalia is a fantastic host who takes pride of her apartment. She is also extremely helpful to us during our stay in Athens. This is a great place to stay when you are in Athens for sure.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Thalia's place. She wasn't in town when we arrived but she had someone waiting for us when we did. It was a very cute & peaceful stay and very close to the main attractions; only a 10 min walk to the Acropolis. We felt like locals in that neighborhood, which is exactly what we wanted. Although we were without hot water on the first night & morning, Thalia was prompt on fixing it right away. It had everything we needed for our first time in Greece. We would definitely like to stay at Thalia's again!
