The apartment is situated right in the city centre very near to the historic sites and all modern amenities. It is a 3 minute walk to Syntagma square and central station or moments away from the finest cafes and restaurants in the nicest and most stylish area of Athens.
Situated in a modernist building with a generous balcony facing a leafy internal courtyard and protected from the street noise of Athens.
Cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
The apartment is newly renovated and on the first floor of a well maintained building on a central street leading to the main shopping district of Kolonaki and its square, and is also very close to the metro station at Syntagma, the main museums, the parliament and the National Gardens.
There is a convenient supermarket right underneath it, and the area has many lively cafes and restaurants. The apartment is quiet and spacious, with a large and wide continuous balcony facing the inner courtyard. The area is special too, Kolonaki is a beautiful district.
At night, its rare to find a place so quiet - and so central. In the daytime it is a busy commercial area with a lot of offices operating in working hours but the flat is protected from traffic noise by being tucked away at the back of the building, facing a leafy courtyard.
Opposite is the Belgian embassy, the British Council and embassy are close by and the beautiful Benaki and Cycladic museums are also a block away, two blocks away is the Parliament building.

The king size double bed is very comfortable. Let us know if you are travelling with children and we can provide a travel cot or children's airbed.
All rooms are all air-conditioned for the hotter summer months.
Heating is also provided through the two powerful air conditioners, in the winter months.
The custom built kitchen is handmade, with wooden worktops and ceramic sinks, laquered cupboards and a ceramic stove and a compact oven.
There is everything you ll need to cook and serve food.
The peaceful plant filled balcony is a nice spot to have your breakfast or a dinner for two - surprisingly quiet and leafy in spite of its central location.
Altre cose da evidenziare
Athens is a beautiful, generous and colourful city, and a little disorganised. If unsure of something please ask us (be it Museum opening hours, public transport, airport directions etc...)
* Note : We are always interested in longer lets. However you can use the calendar tool on the airbnb site to get an accurate estimate of the rates. Each month is already discounted accordingly on your calendar, and the rates are pretty much accurate.
When you arrive it is essential to have a working (roaming) mobile phone, to ensure we can communicate with you & plan a smooth check-in. SMS is fine.
In the flat :
Strictly No Smoking inside the flat and no pets (contact us to ask if you want to travel with a pet).
You can smoke when out on the Balcony though, hanging out with our lovely plants, if you re careful.
Please DO NOT leave the air conditioning or the hot water boiler ON for extended periods without purpose.
Be aware of the electricity they devour, and not only the economic but also the environmental damage this contributes to.
Please respect the neighbours, and take good care of the apartment.
Its well insulated and soundproofed so you can listen to music, sing, have friends for dinner etc, and its above a small supermarket hq's so you can gently dance too, no one will mind ;-)
Please try to Recycle when possible- there is a blue bin outside and a green one. Blue is for recycling plastic.
* If your check-in hours are extreme ( check-in after 10pm, or check in before 9 am) please contact us first. At times we need to hire someone for an extra fee to accomodate unusual check-in times and there may be a small charge in that case.
FOR LATE CHECK-INS (after 10pm) we require guests to either hire our Taxi driver to pick them up and check them in, at no extra charge for the standard airport fixed-rate fee (40 euro fixed rate). After midnight we pay the driver an extra 5 euro which is added to the night-time rate (55 euro state-regulayed fixed fare from the airport).
We have continued to be awarded 'Superhost' status for over a year and a half now, so you can rest assured we're responsible, punctual and honest. We're frequent travelers ourselves for work - and understand guests's requirements.
We're two visual artists living and working in London, travelling often, and spending the warmest and coldest months of the year in Greece.
