Located just one stop away from the grungy and edgy Omonia (think Brooklyn before it became hipster central) and two stops from the lively, pulsing Monastiraki (where the famed Plaka and Psiri areas are located), Attiki is a melting pot and the face of Athens that few visitors see.
Our holiday apartment is ideal for a couple, but can accommodate two more (children or a couple) on a double-sized fold out couch. It has two large, bright rooms, an equipped kitchen with marble counter tops, bathroom with a bathtub (both tiled with original 60’s tiles), and a spacious balcony with a view of the main drag to Omonia and a distant view of the Acropolis.
The apartment is central and has excellent connections to all areas of interest in Athens. Plaka, with its myriad restaurants and bars, the Sunday flea market at Monastiraki, Psiri with its trendy eateries and boutiques, the famed produce markets in Athinas street, the nightlife and party area of Gazi, and the avant-garde neighbourhood Exarchia, are all 10-15 minutes away by public transport.
A supermarket with a deli section is located on the ground floor of the apartment building. Local cafés and grill houses, an excellent bakery, an ouzeri, a convenience store, a pharmacy, a hair salon and a square where locals congregate and relax on summer nights are all less than 3 minutes away.
The church and square next door is a local landmark, so taxis and friends will always be able to find their way.
The Attiki district is an area that is increasingly attracting students and creatives, thanks to its central and cheap location. It is a multicultural area with many ethnic restaurants and stores. Local gems, yet untouched by mass tourism, can be found on every corner: grungy cafés, traditional tavernas (read: no picture menus!), and traditional ouzo bars. We'll leave a local guide with a list of our personal recommendations, so you make the most out of your stay.

Because it is our holiday apartment, we have left the place in the care of a friendly neighbour who will hand over the keys and show you the ropes. Because she is not confident with English, you can rest assured that we will make ourselves completely available to you via email, S,kype, and phone during your stay (if you so wish!), and will always do our best to communicate in real time.
