This splendid apartment which features an elevator is located in Pagrati, a lively residential area in Athens, near to shops, bakeries, movie theaters, cafes and restaurants, and yet it is still walking distance (1/2 hour) to the Acropolis and the tourist area of central Athens.
The apartment itself comprises two bedrooms and in addition features a sofa bed and an optional single bed. It is very spacious (100 sqm) and the balcony is a wonderful treat to sit outside in the evenings and feel like a native Athenian.
We are more than happy to explain how everything in the apartment works and give advice about buses, trams, grocery stores, etc. The best bakery in the world (Captain's Bakery) is located two blocks away at the intersection of Damareous and Arivvou (next to the A&B supermarket) and has some of the best bread and desserts in the world (at a very inexpensive price.)
There are plenty of children's parks in the area, guests' favorite is at the intersection of Eftichidou and Spirou Kerkouri.
For those who prefer to use public transportation, the #2, 4 and 11 trolley's stop just a couple of blocks away and will take you straight into the heart of Athens. The cost is only €1.20 or only €5 euro by taxi.
Our guests have told us that our apartment feels a little like home to them as it features a dishwasher, washing machine, air conditioning, electric kettle, TV and all the comforts of home. It has a kind of antique style and architectural features that give the feeling of old times. It use to be our family house so we like to look after it and keep it in a good condition. AIRBNB has given us the chance to open it to guests that they would like to stay in Athens and live like locals.
