Welcome to a 2018 fully renovated, 7th floor penthouse, with a spectacular view of the Acropolis rock, the Parthenon and the beautiful Lycabettus hill from its own private terrace. Located in a quiet street near the National Archaeological Museum, in a prestigious 1934 Athenian landmark building that stands opposite a park, it is just a few mins walk to attractions, antiquities and Plaka, the old Athens. All in all, this is the perfect place to explore Athens, without ever loosing sight of the splendor of the Acropolis! The penthouse is bright and spacious and can accommodate up to 4 guests. In its 50m² (538ft²), it features a large living / dining room, one bedroom, one bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful 25m² (269ft²) private terrace with a spectacular view of the Acrop...Welcome to a 2018 fully renovated, 7th floor penthouse, with a spectacular view of the Acropolis rock, the Parthenon and the beautiful Lycabettus hill from its own private terrace. Located in a quiet street near the National Archaeological Museum, in a prestigious 1934 Athenian landmark building that stands opposite a park, it is just a few mins walk to attractions, antiquities and Plaka, the old Athens. All in all, this is the perfect place to explore Athens, without ever loosing sight of the splendor of the Acropolis! The penthouse is bright and spacious and can accommodate up to 4 guests. In its 50m² (538ft²), it features a large living / dining room, one bedroom, one bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful 25m² (269ft²) private terrace with a spectacular view of the Acropolis. The living/dining room opens to the penthouse’s terrace, where you can relax and enjoy the Acropolis view and the magnificent Attican blue sky! But should you wish to stay indoors, the Acropolis can still be admired from the living room! In detail: Crossing the threshold of our building, you will come to a hallway paved in marble, and illuminated by chandeliers. After climbing twelve steps, you will reach a Schindler elevator that will take you to the seventh floor. Our penthouse apartment is 50m² (538ft²), and has a 25m² (269ft²) veranda with a great view to the Acropolis. Unlock the (eighty year old) heavy Oak door of our penthouse, you will find yourself in a small entrance hall connected to a room with access to the master bedroom, the living room and the bathroom. The colors throughout the house are warm, subtle and romantic. The floors are original 1930’s (Oak) solid hardwood, and many floors have marquetry designs. There are original paintings hanging on every wall of the house. The bedroom has a large double bed (160x200 cm), very spacious closets and a large mirror. Inside the closet you will find an ironing board and a steam iron. The living room is where you will enjoy your lunch, lay out your excursion plans or simply watch tv. It has a large dining table with antique chairs, a 32” Full HD tv (dvd player and satellite tv), a spacious couch that turns into a double bed (140x200 cm), a set of coffee tables, and -most importantly- an excellent view of the Acropolis and the Athenian skyline. If you wish to enjoy the view in its full glory, go out on the veranda. Right across our building you will see the National Archaeological museum, built in 1829, and its lovely small park filled with various trees and birds (including wild large parrots). Right next to the Museum you can see the historic building of the National Technical University, build in 1836. You cannot miss the Acropolis that is right in front of your eyes, and on your left you will see the famous Lycabettus hill. There is patio furniture available, so you can enjoy your lunch and dinner while admiring this unique view. Adjoined to the living room you will find the kitchen. It is fully equipped, with a fridge, cooking oven, washing machine, water boiler, a frappe coffee shaker, a full dinnerware set, etc. Our kitchen has an amazing view to the Acropolis as well! The bathroom is paved with antique (late 1800’s) patterned tiles of the neoclassical style. It has a small bathtub, a toilet, a sink, fresh towels and a hair dryer. The hot water in both, the bathroom and the kitchen, is autonomous and you can turn it on and off whenever you need it from the panel located in the entrance hall. The temperature in the house is always very pleasant. Besides the fact that the house is very sunny all day long, during the winter there is central heating that keeps the temperature approximately at 22 °C/ 71.6F. The summers in Athens can be very warm, but there is air conditioning that you can set on the temperature of your choice. This is an ideal apartment for a short or long visit in Athens that will leave you with great memories. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: ΑΜΑ 00000088017More

About the neighbourhood
Our area has always been a very popular destination for artists and intellectuals. There is an abundance of taverns and restaurants (with excellent prices and quality) as well as many small bars and cafes only a five minute walk. There are two supermarkets, many mini markets and several delicatessen with quality Greek foodstuff. If you like, from here you can walk to the Acropolis, or take one of the many means of transplantation (taxi, trolley, buss, metro, city tour buses) for only a few minutes. We are in the heart of Athens, but our street is very quiet and we are right across the beautiful park of the National Archaeological Museum of Athens! (The door of the museum is only 50 meters from us)
Getting around
All City Tour (double deck) buses stop just a few meters away and will take you to all the major landmarks! The Victoria subway station is a five-minute walk. Omonia Square metro station is ten minutes walk. Getting to the Piraeus Port by Car is 20 minutes. Monastiraki square is a 20 minutes walk or 2 stops by train from Victoria station. The Acropolis is approximately 30 min. on foot / or 5 minutes by taxi (3.50 - 4.50 euros) / or a short walk from Thesio station (3 stops from Vicoria station). The long distance bus terminal (for places such as Sounio and beautiful beaches) is a three minute walk.
