The house is located in the heart of Athens. It was built in 1925 by our grandfather, architect Athanasios D., a student of Ziller, who installed there his office and his private residence.
It is a two floors independent house with a roof terrace, high ceilings, wooden floors and period furniture.
First floor (ground floor level). Entrance hall where four bicycles can be parked. A living room with a triple couch, a double sofa-bed and a large library of greek interest books (history, literature, art, etc). Separate room with a desk, computer and a piano (needs tuning), air conditioning available. The two areas can be separated by simply opening or closing a dividing door. Small bathroom and shower available.
Second floor. (first floor level). Dining area accommodating four or five persons for breakfast or meal. Two double bedrooms each with its own sitting area, where you can rest, read or listen to music (hi fi equipment supplied). You can unify the sitting areas by opening the dividing door. Charmingly equipped small but functional kitchen. French and espresso coffee maker, toaster. You will also find plenty of seasonings for your cooking. All-marble bathroom with toilet and bathtub. Out of the kitchen stands a spiral iron staircase leading to the roof terrace, one floor up (probably not recommended for people suffering of heights). In the roof top you will discover a small garden of traditional greek herbs, plants and flowers. We also grow organic vegetables hydroponically; if you visit us at the right season, you will have the joy to taste them.

Souzanna and Jason were very welcoming when we arrived and looked after us fantastically well throughout our stay. They advised us on restaurants, cafes and shops to go to in Athens, all of which were exactly the sort of places we were after. We had a bedroom and study/sitting room to ourselves so we could have complete privacy when we wanted, but our hosts were never far away if we wanted help or just a chat. This is also a great area to stay in: near enough to the centre to be convenient, but completely untouristy and with a multi-ethnic character of its own. Highly recommended on all counts.
The house locates in the center of the city, couple of steps to the metro station and the historical city. It's kind of cold traveling in Athens at the end of the year. The house has no central heating but keeps us warm enough with air conditioner and a heater. Jason and Souzanna are super nice, preparing the infos, giving kind advices all we need for exploring the city. It was nice staying with them!
the welcome was warm and heartfelt, the house just magnificent, the neighbourhood just wonderfull !
Description of Souzanna's place was perfect, her and Jason made us feel very welcome and like friends. Their house is very warmly decorated with old worldly charm. It's a stay we'll always remember, nothing like your average boring hotel! As we were leaving early this morning they were both smiling and waving us bye out their terrace window. Somewhere we'd go back in a flash. Thanks Souzanna n Jason. Mark, Laure, Luc n Sophie xxx
Souzanna and Jason are just wonderful hosts! From the first second we felt at home, they gave us good tips where to go to in Athens and they even served us tea and delicious food. The house is very nice - exactly like the pictures show it. We also liked the area where it is located. We would definetly come back to this place if we'll ever visit Athens again!
