At the foot of the Acropolis is a wonderfully hidden surprise. To get to here, you must walk up a wide set of stone stairs beside Agios Nikólaos Ragavás church which was built in the 11th century Byzantine era. It was repaired in the 18th century and restored again in the 1970s. The Church of St. Nicholas was the first church to receive a bell in Athens after the 1821 War of Independence. This same bell was the first to ring after the city's liberation from the Germans on October 12, 1944.
This is a 2 bedroom apartment that ideally sleeps 3 but can accommodate 4 with the sofa bed in the living room. An additional single bed can be added to one of the bedrooms if preferred. What is truly wonderful about this place is the large garden where you can eat dinner, drink coffee or talk to Kitoo the 17 year old resident cat. Directly behind this house is a multi-level park and the Acropolis.
The 2nd and smaller bedroom has a wall unit for storage and hanging clothes. There is also a very private terrace from the 2nd bedroom that is completely enclosed in vines and trees.
For additional storage, there are numerous other antique dressers and night stands.
The owners also reside at the property on the upper level.
Smoking is permitted outside only please.
A security deposit is required.
This apartment is a wonderful oasis in Athens! We just loved our time in Greece because of this comfortable, fully equipped, and ideally located apartment. Paulanne gave us a helpful and enthusiastic introduction to the neighborhood when we arrived.
We would highly recommend this place for visitors to Athens.
