Downtown Athens, luxury 3 bedroom 2 bathroom penthouse with full American style kitchen, featuring full size appliances, full size clothes washer and dryer, free WiFi, and international long distance phone service. Private veranda and Acropolis view terrace.
This light, bright and airy contemporary home features imported American Sealy Posturepedic beds in each of its three bedrooms. Two triple rooms each sleep 3 guests in one Queen and one Twin bed, while the third bedroom sleeps 2 guests in a double bed. Two additional guests can be accommodated on a super comfy sofa sleeper.
In addition to our fabulous full size fridge, stove, and oven, the kitchen is loaded with extras, including a coffee maker, blender, sandwich/waffle grill, complete sets of cookware, and table service, making this not only a great home in the city for a quick breakfast, but also a terrific retreat when you've visited one of our neighborhood's three outdoor farmers' markets and want to try your hand at a Greek feast. We even provide some English language Greek cookbooks to get you started!
Our guests repeatedly tell us that our homes exceed all expectations. This is because we, too, are vacation rental travelers, and as American expats in Athens, we know what it is like to want to come home to a familiar and comfortable apartment where friends and family can spread out and relax after a day exploring the historical center of Athens, whether it's the beaches along the Southern coast or climbing the ruins around Nafplion or Delphi.

Delphi is a great day trip, visit the lovely mountain village of Arahova en route - we can even arrange a driver for your trip, or help you reserve a car and do it on your own with our provided maps! The Argoloid peninsula is the perfect day trip for everyone: Archeology, beaches, wineries and great food, make this a day to please everyone, while getting you back to your comfortable Sealy bed that night.
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 airplane 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 theaters, for summer films under the stars. Cafes and restaurans, great shopping and even three farmer's markets each week make this the perfect home away from home in the centre of Athens.
