Looking for a supersize apartment fit for a large family in Athens? Acropolis View Alphaplus might be your perfect penthouse. With 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and an open-concept, soccer field-sized (almost) living area, up to 12 people will find plenty of room here - all with a lovely view of the Acropolis and Mount Lykavittos. A TERRACE TO REMEMBER The landscaped terrace (shared with the next-door Beta Penthouse) is our pride and joy. It has outdoor dining, a BBQ grill, and nap-worthy lounging sofas that take full advantage of the view. At nightfall, the terrace view glitters with city lights and moon-washed Mount Lykavittos.

We'll even cater a full breakfast or host a wine-tasting for your group out here. Talk to us! And ask us about renting both AlphaPlus AND Beta to accommodate an even larger group of up to 24 people - with this arrangement the gorgeous terrace is all yours. AN AMERICAN-STYLE RENOVATION In Greece, the definition of 'rehabbed' is a bit different than ours. For Greeks it means 'slapped on a new coat of paint/installed new kitchen cabinets.' But Greek Vacation Rentals' version of rehabbed means totally transformed. At the Acropolis View Alphaplus Penthouse, upgrades include all-new, American-style plumbing (TP flushing encouraged!), plus brand-new appliances and Sealy Posturpedic mattresses imported from the US and wrapped in buttery-soft, high thread-count linens. Foodies love our kitchen, which we stock to the heavens with small appliances, cookware, and other gadgets. Even a multi-course holiday feast is no trouble here! After a long, leisurely shared meal on the terrace, a dishwasher is on hand to help with clean-up. We also have a full-size washer and dryer for your clothes, too - a rarity among Athens vacation rentals. 3 BEDROOMS/3 BATHS We have 3 bedrooms, with beds for 10 people plus a sofabed for 2 more. The master suite has a King bed and a twin, making it a great option for a family with a youngin' they want to keep close. The indulgent master bath has an American-style bathtub/shower combination with an extra deep jetted tub and hydro massage shower jets. The 2nd bedroom is also family-friendly, with a queen bed and two twins. A 2nd bathroom on the main floor has a walk-in shower. All bathrooms have Organic Greek bath products and fluffy robes. Upstairs, a 3rd bedroom - also a suite - has a queen bed, a twin bed and a walk-in shower in the attached bath. DOWNTOWN LOCATION Our downtown residential neighborhood is in the thick of things! Here, locals sip coffee under shade trees at the cafes and watch their kids play in the 'platieas' or 'squares,' then browse the farmers markets for dinner ingredients. From the AlphaPlus Penthouse, you can walk to the historic center of Athens - or take the trolley just 4 or 5 stops - and experience some of the best museums in downtown, like the Benaki, the Cylcadic, the National Art Gallery, as well as Syntagma Square and the National Gardens. As Greek Vacation Rentals third property, we really found our footing with the AlphaPlus Penthouse! We consider it the culmination of years of learning what our guests want from an authentic-yet-indulgent Athens vacation.More

Basil and I hope we've figured out the perfect mix of helping as we host.

And when we arrange your transfers you won't need to worry about getting in and settling down quickly. We'll personally meet you if we're in town, or our team will be waiting, and we'll make sure you've got the lay of the land and answer questions about the neighborhood and Athens. We've got someone on call 24/7, so you need not worry about a thing.

While the historical centre is just a 10 - 15 minute walk from the penthouse, en route you will pass the Old Olympic Stadium, Hadrien's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square and the changing of the guard in from of the Parliment. You can also visit the President and Prime Minister's homes en route to Syntagma, and join the Evzones as they march to their positions in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!! Trendy and chic Kolonaki is located just a 10 minute walk from the penthouse, and en route you might want to visit the National Art Gallery, the Byzantine Museum, the War Museum (great for airplane enthusiasts!), the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art.

How to get there
We're located in downtown Athens, about 30 minutes by car from the Athens International Airport, 15 minutes by car from the port. While most of our guests opt to let us take care of their transfers, you can reach us by metro, we're a short walk from the Evangelismos metro station - a direct line from the airport. For guests who want to explore outer Attica or Delphi, we can recommend several nearby car rental companies that will bring your car to you or we can connect you with a fabulous driver which leaves you free to enjoy the sites.
