Welcome to Athens! My house is a listed neoclassic house on Philipappou hill, ten minutes walking distance from the Akropolis and the Ancient Agora.

The 249 sqm house has two floors and can accommodate up to 7 people.
The ground floor consists of a 25 sqm inner courtyard, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining and living room, an office (with a double sofa bed), and a shower and toilet.
The first floor consists of a lovely sun room with high windows made of multi-colored glass tiles. It also has a beautiful victorian fireplace, 2 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 2 bathrooms with toilets, 1 small room with a double sofa bed.
You will find in the house city maps, sheets, towels, soap & shampoo, hair-dryer, WI-Fi, air conditioning/heating… You will also find everything you need for your breakfast.
The house is located in Ano Petralona, a district full of streets lined with orange and olive trees. It is a neighborhood renowned for its authentic and inexpensive tavernas, cosy bars and delightful old Athenian traditional atmosphere. Ano Petralona is much appreciated by intellectuals and young people of Athens who enjoy the lively ambience of the area.
The main focus of the neighborhood is Troon street, where the house is located. Within a walking distance from the house (1 minute by foot), you can find one a very well known open-air movie theater in Athens, called "Zephyros". On Friday you can also enjoy a farmers market in the street nearby, where you can find a colourful offering of fruit and vegetables.
It is an ideal location if you plan to visit the treasures of Athens: ten minutes by foot from Acropolis and other major historical sites (Ancient Agora, Herodion Theater, Acropolis museum...)
At your arrival, I will be here to welcome you in the house and give you the keys.
As hospitality is very important to me, I will provide you with all the information and assistance you need before and and during your travel.
I will also be more than happy to share with you my best tips (tavernas, bars, worthy sights) so you can have a real local Athens experience.
