About this listing
One of the very few apartments with this amazing, uninterrupted, postcard view of the Acropolis from the living room NOT only from the balcony or the terrace. Live with the Parthenon in front of your eyes.
I am very proud to offer to the airbnb community the chance to stay at this unique penthouse on the 7th floor (8th for the USA) of a central building in Athens.
The view from the apartment is simply breathtaking. No words and no pictures can describe it. Acropolis seems to enter the living room through the big floor-to-ceiling glass windows. You cannot imagine this feeling.
Day and night is like living on the hill of Parthenon. Especially during the night, when the monument´s lights are turned on, the atmosphere is a true 5 stars experience. Time for candle light dinners under the shade of Acropolis.
Many buildings offer views of the Acropolis but it is impossible to find one this close combined with its surroundings.
Besides the living room, every room, every part of the house shares this extraordinary view. Even the bathroom !! Taking a shower in this penthouse is an experience on its own. The temple of Hephaestus is a postcard view from the bathroom window.
Same with the comfortable bedroom. The Hephaestus temple with Thissio hill on the background is the frame on top of your head.
There's even a big veranda with plants and flowers offering 360 degrees panoramic views of Athens city.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my unique place. I am looking forward to being your host in my beloved city.
Happy travels to everybody !!!

Latest technology's a/c units in every room, perfect temperature guaranteed.
Rain shower in the bathroom

Safety alarm equipment (internal - outdoor)
Fast and reliable WI FI
All electric appliances are brand new (fridge, washing machine, dish washing machine, microwave etc)
You will love this, most favorite among tourists, spot of the city. The penthouse is very close the famous Monastiraki sq, where the metro from the airport and Piraeus port, stops. All monuments are obviously under your feet. The famous Athens flea market is in front of your window. Acropolis museum is a pleasant 10 - 15 mins walk. Plaka, the district with the island feeling, is in front of your door. All nightlife bars and restaurants are nearby.
The only downside, I have to confess, is that you 're gonna love so much staying inside or at the veranda of this amazing penthouse, that you will not feel the need to explore the city :-)
We will require a copy of your passport which we collect during the check in.

Everything about our stay exceeded expectations. The views are unbelievable, location very central. The apartment is quiet, the bed comfortable, and we even were left a phone to communicate with the host. The service was above and beyond as well: my suitcase was delayed arriving in Athens, and Christine helped me communicate with the airline about the logistics of dropping it off so that we didn't need to wait at the apartment for the bag to arrive. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in Athens.
Amazing place and location. Super organized host.
We had an amazing time UN this stunning and pristine penthouse apartment. The views are incredible and the space was immaculate. Comfortable bed, fantastic shower, a bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge, it truly could not have been better. The neighborhood was wonderful with fantastic restaurants and energetic streets all around. I would recommend this place to anyone
WOW! This penthouse is more incredible in person, than in the amazing pictures! We stayed on new years eve, and had a perfect view of the fireworks. Its also in a central location, convenient to absolutely everything. The host is very welcoming, and made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely recommend!
What an exceptional place!!! The location, the apartment, the view, the comfort... everything is absolutely perfect.
And thanks to the hosts, we felt as if this was our place...
Francis, Christine: you've been so helpful and kind, many thanks for everything ! We've spent 3 amazing nights at your place, and hope to have the chance to come back soon.
Very nice view! I see the purple flash in rainy day on above of the Acropolis! Francis is very kind and warm heart. He prepared books fruits, even chopsticks for me. I enjoy the time spend in his pen house! Wonderful!
The apartment is fantastic to live in. It's splendid view and fashionable interior design sets it apart from others. The location is also 10 minutes walk from almost everything you need to see in Athens. Christine is very nice to help us with the check in and hope her cold get better soon. I will recommend my friends to take this apartment in their next visit to Greece.

About the Host, Francis
Hey guys and many thanks for visiting my profile. I was born in Athens and I really love this amazing city. This is the main reason I bought and renovated 2 apartments, right in the most central part of the city. Having travelled a lot as well, I find that the interaction with the locals always give you the right tips and makes the difference in the discovery of a new place. I am looking forward to meeting you personally and share with you the secrets of my city.
