Thiseio, Monastiraki and Plaka area is only one stop away. Metro to Athens International Airport with 1 change of line. There is a pedestrian zone with a bicycle path. ATM’s and grocery stores that are open 24/7 (some of them) are very near the apartment. The closest super market is one block away. Restaurants and cafes are very near, and around the corner there is a fantastic fruit shop that makes fresh juice from a great variety of Mediterranean and tropical fruits! FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE LOCATION, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN! The rooms are made to make you feel comfortable and relaxed, inspired by the Greek nature and they are decorated with an artistic touch and artworks by contemporary Greek artists. The spacious hall, kitchen and dining area in the color of olive trees and tones of wood brings you in the mood of Mediterranean nature and kitchen! Your cozy place to sit for breakfast, enjoy your meals and make plans for an exciting day! Espresso, American coffee, herbal tea or you name it, help yourself with one of the appliances available to you. For the daring, we recommend Greek Frappe chilled coffee -if you don’t know how to make it, we will be happy to show you! You can also cook your own meals. For a short or a longer stay, this well-equipped kitchen will cover all your culinary needs! The living room, in warm earth colors and wood, will be your sitting and meeting place where you can chill after an interesting and tiring day in the city! Enjoy the big sofa and watch your favorite show and Netflix on the 40” smart TV. In the day, the sunlight from outside engulfs the place and in pleasant weather the balcony is recommended! The 3-sit sofa can be turned into a very comfortable and spacious double bed. There is also a single coach that opens and sleeps one person. The bedroom is inspired by the night. Darker shades of colors contrasting with star-white and materials that give a sense of luxury, create a serene but also exciting atmosphere. We value your comfort very highly, so exceptional care has been given to bedding and sleeping mattress for the Q-size bed as well as for the sofa-double bed in the living. In the closet you can find additional bedding, comforters and towels. The modern bathroom is inspired by the mountains: tiles in the color of a mountain lake, fir wood and glass materials resembling ice and of course… water! It is your place to refresh and enjoy a relaxing shower. If you are visiting for business or you must be connected to your work during your stay, there is a work-space with charging station and USB socket. If necessary, we can provide you with more office equipment such as a Laser printer and paper. Just ask! There is a washing machine to do your laundry and a balcony to let it dry under the Greek sun! NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW Petralona is an urban residential area that neighbors Athens’ main archaeological sites. Situated at the west side of the Acropolis hill, in short walking distance from Thiseion, Plaka, Monastiraki and the Acropolis. It is served by Metro line 1 and other bus and trolley (electric bus) lines. It is quiet, safe yet vibrant as it offers the hottest afternoon and evening eating and going out opportunities in town. International, Greek and even exotic kitchen, trendy and cult cocktail bars make Petralona a favorite place for Athenians and visitors. Its proximity to ancient Athens, gives the place an ambiance and character. It is said that even the natural light of the sun is different in this historically charged area. International Magazine “Monocle” suggests that Petralona is “Paris of Athens” and talks about its character, rising popularity as living area and the countless dining and chilling opportunities. The hill of the Muses: Our suggestion: walking the Filopappou hill and entering the Acropolis area from there.Well worth it for some of the best panoramic views of Athens, of the Acropolis, and a lovely wooded park (a very different terrain from the rocky Acropolis!) with walking paths surrounding the hill. See Socrates’ prison and ancient tombs. Going up there are spots with sitting banks where you can sit and enjoy magnificent views of Athens, port of Piraeus, the sea and islands of Aegina and Salamis. Deviate and visit Athens observatory, a jewel of architecture and gardening. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 00000010380More
