“Sun sto Spiti” is a '60s house with a yard, recently renovated as to maintain the style and architecture of that time, by the architect Mariza Tsiligkiridi. It consists of 2 separate apartments without direct connection between them (elevated ground floor and 1st floor) of different design styles. It can host a total of up to 10 individuals in 4 different rooms. It is located at Filopappou area (a historical district near the Acropolis) in one of the quietest neighbourhoods at downtown Athens.

The double-space bedroom has a space with 2 single beds of 75x190cm and 90x190cm respectively (which can form a double bed, when brought together) and another space with a sofa-bed of 120χ190cm. The other bedroom has a double bed of 160x200 cm. Thanks to its stone-wall construction, the apartment is cool in summertime while maintaining heat in wintertime. The apartment can be rented per room or an entire apartment, where the double-space room is transformed into a living room. The decoration is of mid-century modern style with original restored furniture of that time, along with elements of contemporary design of the 1950s.

The decoration is a combination of shabby chic and vintage design with oldie furniture and decorative elements, along with patina wall paintings.

Guest access
Guests can have access to the common yard equipped with solar lightning and seating with tables for 10. The plants include a variety of Mediterranean herbs and aromatic plants, suitable for cooking.

Other things to note
The house is a corner, 3-facet building with southern orientation which makes it exceptionally bright, thus sunny and airy;-)

Its great brightness, thanks to its orientation, along with the familiar sensation that this house conveys once you walk in, inspired us to name it “Sun sto Spiti” which has a double meaning: 1/ “Sun at home” (literally) and 2/ “Feel like home” (metaphorically) as in our place you will feel like home!

We are happy to offer you flexible check in, from 09:00 to 22:00 according to your needs. This depends on availability of the property (if there is a guest before or after you), due to the time necessary for cleaning the apartments. Otherwise, check in is at 15:00 and check out at 11:00. For check in from 22:00 to 09:00 an extra charge of €20 applies.
