Our Athens First Luxury Duplex Penthouse was the property that started it all, setting the tone for Greek Vacation Rentals with its modern furnished living spaces and amazing location right in the heart of Athens. Light-filled and homey – but with all the little touches to remind you that you’re on vacation – this 3-bedroom, 2-bath sanctuary is located on a quiet street just steps from all the action. After your days spent exploring, step inside and fall into the American-style comforts of home. SPACE TO UNWIND The sun-soaked rooms are airy and inviting, with a fully stocked kitchen to delight foodies and their hungry families. Don’t worry, you’ll find all the needed conveniences to make dining-in a breeze (like coffee machine, dishwasher, and full-sized washer and dryer – a rarity in central Athens!). The apartment is spread comfortably over two levels, making it a great choice for couples traveling together who want privacy; or multi-generational families keen to explore all the riches of the Greek capital. With three levels of outdoor living space, you can wake up slowly with a cup of coffee overlooking the city or sink into a couch in the shade after a day’s exploring. There's a private veranda on each level, plus an Acropolis view terrace on the rooftop. We can't think of anywhere better to enjoy a glass of ouzo than overlooking the Acropolis and Mount Lykavittos. 3 BEDROOMS / 2 BATHROOMS The master bedroom located on the main floor has a plush Queen bed dressed in high thread-count linens, with the convenience of a bathroom with glass-enclosed walk-in shower right next door. On the second level, you’ll find a bedroom with a double bed and a third room with a double bed and 2 twin beds (ideal for globe-trotting kids), with a shared bathroom featuring an American-style bath-shower combo. The bedrooms sleep 7, and a sofabed sleeps 2 more. CULTURE CAPITAL You'll find authentic Athens right outside your door in tree-lined squares, restaurants, and farmers' markets. Your central location also means that the city's rich historical center is just steps away. Walk or hop on the tram to visit the city's top museums (the Cycladic, the Benaki, and the National Art Gallery to name a few). You can also study modern Greek life with people-watching in the parks and cafes you'll find along the way. You won't need a car to get around Athens, but if you have one, we've got convenient indoor parking. AMERICAN COMFORT IN ATHENS We know you want an authentic Greek experience – the food, the history, the people – but when it comes to sleeping and dining-in, you crave the little (or not so little) comforts of home. We hear you. As travelers ourselves – who appreciate a great bed and a gourmet kitchen as much as you do – we've given our properties full American-style renovations, meaning our modern bathrooms are fully functional and luxurious (go on and flush that TP - we can't say the same for other bathrooms in Athens!). You'll also find imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, cotton-soft robes, and full-sized appliances to make your time in Athens as easy as pie (or a honey-soaked Greek baklava, if you prefer). Make yourself at home at our First Luxury Duplex Penthouse, the perfect recipe for an authentic modern Athens experience.

While the historical is just a 10 - 15 minute walk from the penthouse, en route you will pass the Old Olympic Stadium, Hadriens 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. At your feet is the vibrant Imittou shopping district. A double wide, boulevard...

We've got trains, trolleys, buses and trams all around us - but your feet are the best 'getting around' choice for the city center from our great location. And for daytrips and transfers we have a fabulous team ready to pick you up from airport or port, and get you settled into your Athens homes. We're also ready to share our Athens with you with a great variety of daytrips and private tours.
