Description

The space

*Please make sure that you have checked availability first before submitting your reservation request !!!
The Acropolis: The sacred rock of Athens. The city "fortress"and Athena’s temple in ancient times. The ancient market (Agora), the temple of Olympian Zeus, the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, the Parthenon, Philopappou Hill, Hadrian’s Arch, Plaka, Thiseion, Keramikos, Monastiraki… You’re here, right here!!!
This 145 square meter house is right next to these monuments, sights and places and can be directly met in a few-minute walk from your doorstep.
The Acropolis and Makrygianni area: A quiet and safe neighborhood which is constantly growing, developing and being modernized without losing its original identity. With all kinds of stores around –cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, new designers’ studio, hotels, restored and crumbling neoclassical mansions , etc., offers visitors a variety of choices and conveniences to go out, explore and entertain themselves by day and night. A meeting spot for people from all over the world. The perfect starting point to wander around the city.
You arrive at the house after an only 2-minute walk from the Acropolis metro station.
Getting to know the house: A refurbised mansion, 145 square meter with a large cozy living room, a kitchen and a dining area on the ground floor. 2 bedrooms on the second floor and a balcony. And finally 1 extra bedroom in the attic. Fully equiped with antique furnitures and unique artifacts this is not your typical IKEA listing rather than a work of art. All the rooms are cool and quiet and offer a unique feel of Greek baroque art.
The owner of the house spends time between Athens and Paros island. This house is their permanent residence when in Athens. The old furniture, passed on by grand-parents, co-exist with colorful and playful new pieces. Feel free to look around the house and discover the collections of objects found in flea markets, bazaars and travels. The house includes all the necessary equipment and appliances of a house that is inhabited and enjoys receiving guests.
The house provides: wireless internet connection, a 32 inch TV, cable-TV CD player, radio, central heating, fans, washing machine, and also , a bookcase with several books in Greek English, and French.
Also, clean towels and sheets are provided for the guests to use during their stay.
In the kitchen, you will find all kind of supplies that you might need during your stay for cooking.
The rest, I leave to you to discover… Don’t hesitate to ask anything you’d like to know about the area and the city. I’d be glad to give out, secrets and share my favorite places in the city with you, to help you feel like more than a tourist.

We stayed in Kriton's place for 3 nights in April. We were welcomed by his father, Kristos, and if I could rate the check-in process more than 5 stars, I would. Kristos was very sweet, showed us around the house and the neighborhood, and even made us Greek coffee! The house is well-appointed, with everything you need for your stay. The rooms were well-sized, bathrooms exceeded our expectations. Location is perfect, being in the middle of Plaka (under the shadows of the Acropolis!). Almost everything you need or want to see is within walking distance. The view from the roof deck is gold. You can see the Acropolis all the way to Lycabettus hill. Thanks, Kriton and Kristos, for your warm hospitality!

Our stay in Kriton's house was perfect. The house location, at the heart of Plaka was the best location we could think about: near the tavernas but still quiet, like a small house in a village. We enjoyed it and Kriton hospitability was incredible. He was always here to answer our questions whever we asked him and was always nice and kind.
