Beautifully decorated and newly (2015) refurbished flat near the Acropolis with access to a terrace offering views over Lycabettus Hill, the Parthenon and the town.
Situated a stone's throw from the Acropolis, on the slopes of Philopappou Hill, this ground floor flat offers a very central and spacious accommodation to longer term visitors and tourists on a city-break alike.
The flat gets good light during the day, and has a modern layout and earthy colours. It has access to a terrace through an elevator, where you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Acropolis, Lycabbetus Hill and Mt Hymettos, as well as partial views of the sea and Aegina on clear days.
The flat is composed of a bedroom, a bathroom, a semi-divided living room and a semi-open plan kitchen. There is a 160cm by 200cm bed in the bedroom and a fold-out sofabed that has a 100cm by 200cm mattress. Guests can enjoy unlimited wi-fi; flat has its own natural gas heating which the guests can set to the requisite degrees, and constant supply of hot water; guests will have access to a fridge, a washing machine, a hairdryer, as well as various kitchen utensils, and will have ample space to store their belongings.
I normally live in the flat myself and usually rent it out during the periods that I am away from Athens travelling (I am a travel writer). I provide linen and towels and have friends (professional guides) catering for the guests' needs when not in town.
Guests are welcome to read the books and make use of other personal belongings, so long as they leave everything in its place once used :)
Please do not walk with shoes inside the house. You are kindly requested to leave your shoes on the mat by the door; you will find flipflops placed behind the door. This is very important for house hygiene.
Important: please do not pull suitcases on the floor! It is made of a sensitive material and you will scratch it. Please lift the suitcases to cross to the bedroom.
Please do not throw dinners / parties in the flat and do not invite people beyond those renting. Neighbours will complain about the noise.
Smoking is not allowed in the house, please do not smoke to avoid setting the fire alarm off. You can smoke in the small garden in front of the house, or on the building's terrace.
