The Attica region
Athens is a great year round destination, and our location in the shadow of the Acropolis puts you smack dab in the heart of history.
From Apostolou Pavlou, the pedestrian boardwalk that meanders around the archaeological park, you are just a quick walk from the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the New Acropolis Museum, the Ancient Agora and the Plaka.
We're also just a few minutes from trendy Gazi and the gallery district, and funky Psirri with its night-life and cafes.
Historical and modern Athens at your feet! While the historical centre is just a 10 - 15 minute walk from the penthouse, en route you will pass the Old Olympic Stadium, Hadrien's Arch and the Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square and the changing of the guard in from of the Parliment. You can also visit the President and Prime Minister's homes en route to Syntagma, and join the Evzones as they march to their positions in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!!
Trendy and chic Kolonaki is located just a 10 minute walk from the penthouse, and en route you might want to visit the National Art Gallery, the Byzantine Museum, the War Museum (great for air plane enthusiasts!), the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art.
At your feet is the vibrant Imittou shopping district. A double wide, boulevard type street, with one side pedestrian, is lined with trees and cafes and is the place for an afternoon "volta" with the locals. Two indoor movie houses and two outdoor movie theatres, for summer films under the stars. Cafes and restaurants, great shopping and even three farmer's markets each week make this the perfect home away from home in the centre of Athens.

"Charming accomadations, great location."
Everything about booking this location was great. A true urban Athenian experience without making any compromises. Greek Vacation Rentals managed all the transfers and outlined a perfect holiday filled with historic sites and fun local activities. Couldn't have been more fun or less stressful.

"A bucket list vacation"
A friendly greeting and a thoughtful basket of goodies greeted us upon arrival. The Athens Heritage House was spotless, in a great location, approximately 15 minute walk from Acropolis. Carol was a tremendous resource, orchestrating travel to and from the airport, a full day private tour of the ruins with Popi (which our entire family rated as the highlight of the vacation); and a private sunset tour to the Temple of Poseidon. The house was perfect for our needs - a master bedroom with separate bedrooms / bath for the young adults who traveled with us, and a dining / living room area for light breakfast and snak.
