In Tribute To Family & The City

In a city of priceless antiquity, this vacation home for rent in Athens reminds us that designers and artists of the 20th century had some pretty good ideas as well. 

Located in a lively neighborhood overlooking the Acropolis, the apartment circa 1970s, is in the very center of town placing it alongside it’s ancient neighbors.  

Deriving its name from the current owner’s grandmother whose love of textiles and traditional Greek handcrafts adorn the house with colors in tribute to the statues of Parthenon, her granddaughter has connected the eras with modern beton, wood and metal elements, bringing them both in to focus.

Just a short walk into the very heart of the city, you’ll have the best of both worlds.

Description

This sunny and cheerful vacation home for rent in Athens built in the 1970s is a mix of early and mid 20th century design inspired by both current trends and age old traditions.  

The third floor apartment hovers above the lively action of the city below while maintaining peaceful privacy for when you want a break. Completely renovated in 2016, it keeps the unique characteristics of the architecture of the era while mixing creative ideas from the owner’s grandmother who inhabited the home for decades. 

Mondrian style geometric patterns and colors coexist with vintage mid-century pieces and softer textiles in an artistic mash up of styles.

There is a compact fully equipped kitchen with dining space and an adjacent living room and balcony with Acropolis views, where you can sit and take in the city. The two bedrooms sleep up to four guests.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Secured entry, Wifi throughout, Smart TV and Netflix, stereo audio system, kitchen and organic bath amenities. 

AROUND

The apartment is in the very center of Athens in the lively Keramikos district, just a five minute walk from the beginning of the archaeological pedestrian promenade leading to the old city and the Acropolis. Full of little pedestrian streets, it’s a mix of Mediterranean, Neoclassical and modern architecture near to the Gazi Cultural Center, museums, galleries and lots of small restaurants and tavernas to sit and watch the street scene and nightlife.

Shrouded in ancient myth and mystery, Athens is the cradle of democracy and responsible for the birth of theater and philosophy. Situated in Parthenon’s shadow, its temples and Byzantine churches, Ottoman era mosques, bars, restaurants, cafes, monuments, and ancient archaeological treasures are all within easy reach to be able to enjoy this densely vibrant city.

For day trips out of the city, the historic seaside settlement of Chamolia along the east coast lies under an hour from the capital. Stretching as far south as Sounion, it is considered modern day Greece’s cosmopolitan Riviera, with water side promenades, resorts, excellent dining and nightlife and gorgeous Blue Flag beaches as well as the nearby archaeological site of Vravrona and the Sanctuary of Artemis.

    The view is just the start
    Alexandra’s flat in central Athens has a wonderful, rare green-tinted view of Kerameikos and the Acropolis. And that is only the beginning of its many qualities; the centrality of its location to the practicality of its design are only two other. And then there’s Alexandra herself, the perfect host! When I visited Athens with a friend for only 4 days Alexandra took the time to welcome us for breakfast and we ended up spending a great deal of time together. Can’t wait to get back.

    Modern & very centrally located apartment in Athens
    We visited Athens after the Christmas Holidays through the beginning of the year 2016-2017. Alexandra’s apartment is very comfortable and very well located to go see all the sites. You can even see the parthenon from the balcony! Alexandra is super friendly and helped us out with information on anythings to do and see…we even went out for lunch with her one day! Great apartment. Great host.

    Splendid place in Athens!
    The location of the apartment is ideally situated. From the balcony you can see the Acropolis! You can walk in 20 minutes to this magnificient landmark! There are also metro stations close by if you want to explore the city. The neighborhood Kerameikos is upcoming with lots of nice small restaurants and cafe’s.

    The apartment is original and tastefully decorated, mixing 70’s with modern style. There is a good quality coffee machine and a kitchen. We didn’t cook ourselves because we love to go out for dinner but the kitchen is fully equipped.

    Alexandra is very friendly and helpful and her place is highly recommended!

    The perfect host
    Alexandra is a very warm, welcoming, and friendly host, extremely helpful and eager to answer any question you might have about Athens. Her lovely little apartment is well decorated – very modern and kept in a original 70’s retro-style. The place is well situated for exploring Athens by foot and the Acropolis view from the balcony every morning and night just adds to the overall picture.

    Athens is normally considered a loud, polluted, and not very pretty city, but it’s charm is the people, the cosy pedestrian streets, and the overload of historical sights…. did I mention the weather and the easy access to the beaches? We had a great time and would not hesitate to go back. If you choose to go, Alexandra will be your perfect host.

    Apartment very well located, between classical Athens and contemporary Athens (barely 10 ‘walk to the Sacred Way) Housing also very well equipped, very tasteful. The host Alexandra is a caring and available person, attentive to its visitors, and responsive (bakery delivered to the door on the 1st morning!)

    Apt very clean, close to major sites in Athens..
    Location is great, walking distance to most attractions. View of Acropolis from apartment balcony at night was wonderful, to see it light up at night. Alexandra the owner was very helpful, the apartment was clean and very roomy. Market close by to buy groceries if you want to use the kitchen in the apartment. Wonderful close cafes for eating and relaxing.

    The perfect Athenian experience in a chic apartment!

    Located in the center of Athens, in the arty and picturesque neighborhood of Keramikos, this apartment offered as a great stay for our weekend. Next to all the ancient monuments of the city as well as metro and bus stations it was really easy to have access to everywhere we wanted to go. The neighborhood has a lot of character and is filled with bars and restaurants. The apartment was really chic, clean and recently renovated. Perfect for a family or one to two couples. It even had a surprise Acropoli’s view from the balcony which made our morning coffees more “tasteful”. I would definitely recommend you to stay!

    Great Apartment in a Great Location with an Excellent Host
    The central location is perfect for a city break to Athens – historic Athens is on the doorstep! The apartment itself is stunning – a modern, arty, well designed apartment that makes you want to own it yourself. Alex (the owner) even invited us for drinks in the penthouse apartment that has the most breathtaking view of Acropolis – for that alone it was worth the stay!! I have already re-booked for me next visit.
