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