Situated in the most quintessential neighborhood of Athens,Pagrati,this 50sq.m flat is a typical example of the architectural style of the 60s. It is within 5min. walk from Evagelismos subway station which is connected straight to El.Venizelos airport. The flat has a main bedroom, a livingroom/bedroom area with 2 single beds,a dining area,a cosy kitchen and a warm bathroom. The flat has a sunny balcony and is within walking distance from all major tourist attractions: Kallimarmaro,Plaka,Syntagma

The space
The flat is on the 1st floor of the block and there is a lift. With wooden and mosaic floors,the flat is refurbished without losing its 60s architectural style. This was the home of our grand father who was a well known poet of the 60s. Therefore we tried to preserve the flat without changing its original character or modernise it in any aggressive way-we even kept the same marble kitchen sink and the 60s toilet flush. It can host up to 4 persons. Comfortable real beds,central heating,air condition, free wi fi,fully equipped kitchen and vintage decoration details in lighting create a welcoming atmosphere. The flat is sunny all day long with a balcony overlooking the main street. We used warm ,welcoming colors to create a friendly and romantic impression. There is an underground station, EVAGELISMOS,within 4minute walk that brings you straight from the central airport to the heart of Athens. There is also a good bus service available. From our area you can easily reach many other destinations like the Athenian Riviera. A market with shops ,drugstores and supermarkets is located in the same street. It is the most convenient and quiet place to live. The flat is so close to the most interesting tourist attractions like the Kallimarmaro stadium,the National Gallery, the National Garden,Syntagma,Plaka ,Acropolis, Monastiraki and Athens Megaron
