1st floor of an old historical building overlooking the central and most picturesque part of Plaka. A gorgeous neighborhood meets top-notch amenities with a new $0,5 mil interior & beautiful atrium garden. Do not take my word - read the 5* reviews!
We have just finished renovating the first floor of this beautiful house whose origins date back to around 800 AD. Featuring a double bedroom, it can sleep up to four people (or a couple and three children) by converting the living room.
The atmosphere is bright and luxurious thanks to a bespoke open-plan kitchen, a large glass panel on the roof and an interior garden. It's all about letting as much natural light in as possible, without ever getting too hot thanks to thick stone walls and a state-of-the art air conditioning system. The finishing of the interior looks splendid, consisting of hand-finished wood, cast iron and genuine Pentelic marble.
The flat is located on Lysiou St, which is by far the most iconic street in the Plaka area: Almost entirely car-free, vibrant and full of wonderful things to explore. Plaka is pretty much an ideal choice for Athens visitors, as the beautiful neighbourhood maintains an old-world glamour while being positioned in the core of Athens' city centre.
Disponible para huéspedes
The first floor of the house features:
- A fully equipped open-plan kitchen with gas & electric hobs, a large fridge, etc.
- A spacious living area that can comfortably sit up to 15 people with a lovely balcony overlooking the street below.
- A peaceful private atrium-garden.
- Two small restrooms, one of which is en-suite.
- The second floor of the house may be occupied or used as storage during your stay; it has a separate entrance on the other side of the block and thus will not affect your stay in any way.
- Please note that the bed in the master bedroom measures 125cm x 193cm. This is the typical size of an early 19th century cast iron bed, handcrafted in the island of Chios. A folding mattress can be provided if it is too small for you.
Atención a los huéspedes

Your address, passport number and country of issue is a pre_requisite to your reservation as I need to submit this info at mylocal tax office. Please send them along with your reservation.

I strongly believe Athens is most beautiful during the 'off-peak' seasons - Fall, Winter and Spring. Walks along the historical sites that surround the area are twice as special when they feel more intimate & private. That said, summer is always wonderful in Greece.
For those into nature, the hills surrounding the Acropolis (such as Filopappou, a 15 min walk) are reccomended. It is a great place to relax and upon reaching the top you will enjoy a 360 degree view of the city, as well as the beautiful monument of the same name. Before heading back home, why not stop by Cine Paris or Cine Thisseion for a movie under the stars with Acropolis in the background?
My son's after-dark suggestion: Get your friends, grab a few beers from a nearby periptero (mini-market kiosk) and enjoy hanging out by the Aerides (Tower of the Winds) monument down the road. An affordable and yet so priceless experience.
This is a newly renovated property that is often used by my family, and we hope that visitors will appreciate the dedication, time and funds that have helped turning it into what it is now. As such I kindly ask that visitors maintain a considerate attitude. Smoking is permitted in the balcony only. You are welcome to bring your pets with you, however this is subject to prior discussion. Before checking out, we also ask our guests to turn off the air-conditon, the hot water boiler, the electric appliances they may have used and the lights.
The house accommodates for two plus one persons. There is an additional charge of 30 euros for additional visitors.
Please note that there is an internal flight of stairs that needs caution, especially when young children are in the house.
