It is located 15 minutes walk from Greek Parliament and the Acropolis walkway, 400 m from the National Botanical Gardens and across from the pine forest of the Panathenaic (all-marble) Stadium.The Panathenaic Stadium is the place where the first modern Olympic Games of 1896 took place.

One can enter the stadium from the back side to enjoy the green hill, a view of the Acropolis, a sunset or a morning jog/walk with other runners who train for the annual classical marathon.
The Stadio/Pangrati neighborhood offers nice local taverns with friendly service, fresh product markets and a weekly green market, cafes in 2 close-by squares. Bakeries, pharmacy, supermarket and finally, the best pizza in town--all within 2-5 walk! The sights are about a 10-15 min walk from our apartments and you pass the Temple of Zeus and Zappeion along the way. Kolonaki is about 15 minute walk, as well as several museums such as the Benaki, Byzantine and Cycladic and Museum of Modern Art.
It was designed and operated for several reasons:
- To provide people who visit Athens for a short or long period a home with privacy and quiet surroundings.
- The courtyard is for meetings or parties and for guests to invite their friends at home, not at a hotel room.
- The philosophy and concept is that visitors in Athens who stay for long or short term can enjoy the modern design, privacy and green surroundings, in the historical city center, minutes walk from the major Athens attractions.

Interaction with Guests
We welcome all guests and we spend some time getting them oriented regarding the neighborhood and the wider Athens' center.
We provide to them a neighborhood map with pins of the points of interest as long as with a Athens' city center map. Most daytime hours there is someone ready to help our guests at the front desk.
Pagrati-Mets is the area around the Panathenaic stadium where the first modern Olympic Games took place in 1896.
The characteristic feature of the area is that is very calm and pace, meanwhile lays in the very center of the city.
The area is getting more and more credits from young people as one can find lots of brand new restaurants, bars and shops with high aesthetic, fair prices and and a contemporary atmosphere.
From the bus stop, 1 min. away one can find several buses towards Syntagma the main square of the capital.
The area is in the very center,most of the interesting sites are in walking distances.
Other Things to Note
All our apartments are in the same building, there is also free street parking outside of the building.
There is a leaflet inside the apartment with few basic house rules such as smoking rules and switching off air condition while not at home.
Yiannis and Fotini were a joy to meet! Their place is located right next to everything we wanted to see during our short stay in Athens. Their house is very unique and tidy. The beds were extremely comfortable to sleep in after a long day exploring! We appreciated the advice given by Yiannis and that he was able to pick us up and drop us off at the airport. I highly recommend anyone to stay here if you're looking for a good experience in Athens! Thank you again for making our stay so easy to adjust to and enjoyable :) We loved getting to know you and your beautiful city!
We spent four wonderful days in Fotini's flat. The flat is located in a very pleasant neighbourhood and at walking distance from most of the archeological sites and parks.
Very clean and cosy, well equipped and decorated. We loved the bathroom with the upcycled sink and the huge showerbox. We also enjoyed having breakfast in the garden, under the lemon tree:) We did not have the chance to really chat with Fotini, we just briefly met. But the lady at the reception provided lots of information on the area: the closest supermarket, restaurants and stuff.
I definitely recommend it and I would come back for sure.
Though we did not speak for long, I believe Yiannis and Fotini to be kind, welcoming and organised hosts. The apartment was charming, stylish and well equipped, though a bit chilly. The local area was great, Yiannis and Fotini provided a map of the local area with suggestions for our ease. The beautiful view from the Olympic stadium and hill is not to be missed. In short, we loved it and would highly recommend the apartment and hosts.
My friend and I loved our days in Garden Delight. We arrived and Fotini appears immediatly to give us a map of Athens and give us good tips for dinner and do tourism. The room was perfect. The heat system was great (we stayed at snow days so have a warm room was very important), the bathroom was great and the room itselfs has everything: table, kitchen stuff like toaster, coffee machine (coffee, sugar, and tea was there indeed). Yiannis was very kind too. They really care about us. We had to take a ferry to Santorini and they sent me sms the whole time informing if the ship was going or not to leave (the time was very bad so the port didnt know exactly when the ferry was going to leave). The location of the apartment is just perfect too. You can walk to the Acropolis and every tourism atraction is very closed to the apartment. I recommend the department without doubts!!! :)
Like family. This is my second stay and it feels already like home. These guys to the best job providing fantastic accommodation in an ideal location, warm and friendly service to
their guests and a quiet peaceful environment in the heart of Athens. Can't wait to come back!
Its realy great place and good locatin: 20min before Akropolis and 30 - before CityCenter. We dont need used merto, becouse all srtites is nice :)
for as was very important 2 poin: good bads and kitchen. All was great, and garden! For eating, speaking, working and make exersis at the morning;)
Many thanks for Fotini: good tips about place, shop, taxi and bus to the sea - full information, better that Google.
We had such a wonderful stay here at the Green apartments. The apartment was clean, in a wonderful location close to the city center and very well kept.
Yannis and Fotini are lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome. We were in Athens for the marathon, along with a few other people in the apartments, and they hosted a wonderful BBQ for us all the afternoon of the marathon.
We definitely will be back and recommend the Green apartments for anyone looking for something to make your trip to Athens that bit more special!
