Our Acropolis view terrace is the perfect place for a sundowner at the end of the day exploring the ruins and museums. Feel like a relaxing afternoon in the sun, pull up one of our sunbeds and contemplate Ancient Athens while working on your tan!

The Attica region

Explore Attica, Delphi, the Peloponnese, and the islands all from your comfortable home base in Athens. Why both packing and unpacking when you can venture out to the port of Pireaus and catch a flying dolphin to Hydra or Aegina and be back in your own comfortable bed that night?

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.

Plaka, Athens

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.

"A Traveler's Dream 'Home Away'"

Carole and Basil are superlative hosts and have created a wonderful home away in this amazingly well appointed two-story penthouse apartment. We were only three, but the apartment can actually sleep several more comfortably. Nadia met us and walked us through all the things we needed to know from kitchen, office amenities, TV and WiFi along with books, games and DVDs. We were left with a lovely gift basket with wine, a loaf of fresh bread and many Greek treats. When we registered, Carole sent a very comprehensive guide to the apartment, neighbourhood and Athens' points of interest - which we gratefully referred to often. It's a super neighbourhood and we would have liked to explore more if our time hadn't been so pre-disposed. Great shopping, cafe's and tavernas. We had a supreme dinner at a local taverna that will remain a secret amongst the Kezios' guests and other lucky people. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and there were plenty of fluffy thick towels, bathrobes and extra blankets. Every room had a balcony and windows on each side of the apartment made for a bright and airy atmosphere. There is a washer and dryer and a selection of Korres (natural Greek) bathroom products along with hairstyling items. Our early morning coffee or evening glass of wine was most enjoyed on the spacious terrace and we had all our meals out there as well. The area is very quiet and safe, yet only two short blocks to the main road where you can grab a quick taxi ride to the Acropolis or Syntagma (under 4€). It is walking distance of 20 - 30 minutes or a shorter trolley ride to town. We took our car at the last minute and did not arrange for parking which we would the next time. One evening we were lucky to get a place close by and one, not so lucky in this popular area - especially late at night - as we were told. We have already referred this apartment to friends. It is clearly a place anticipating a traveller's every comfort. Carole or Nadia are always a phone call away. If anything, it was a little too comfortable and we found our itinerary slipping as we lounged over a second cup of coffee in the sun on the terrace. We will be back for sure.

"Love Greece and this apartment!"

We stayed at Lykcabettus apartment in April for 8 days. The apartment is perfect for our family of 2 adults + 1 child. It is clean and has everything we need. The location is just superb. We walked everywhere from here. We enjoyed the neighborhood feel of the area and our 6 year old loved visiting the local supermarket as he gets a treat for each visit from the owner :) Carole, owner of the apartment is very helpful with all the information about the place , neighborhood and tours. We hired a private driver to take us to Penepolese and did the 3 Island tours. We love Greece and would definitely come back again in the future for another visit and will stay again at one of Carole's lovely rental properties.
