Includes two full bathrooms, and a bright and airy open floor plan which opens out to a second furnished outdoor living room and dining area.

Like all of our homes, you'll love our well equipped American style kitchen, the free WiFi, and unlimited international long distance phone service, in addition to the full size clothes washer and dryer.

This cozy pied-a-terre in a vibrant neighborhood popular with expats puts you near to the heart of history, but with lots of friendly locals and great off the tourist path shopping and dining options.

For couples or those with a small rental car, we have an optional indoor parking space available for a compact vehicle.

The four squares in our neighborhood are like little villages within a big city where you'll find great cafes and tavernas filled with Athenians enjoying life.

Location description from owner

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?

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.

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, Hadriens Arch and the Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square and the changing of the guard in from of the Parliament. 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.

The heart of our neighborhood is a a double wide, tree and cafe lined boulevard where locals stroll during their afternoon volta and Athenians from around the city converge for coffee and more as the day turns into night.

Two indoor movie houses and two outdoor movie theaters, for summer films under the stars. Cafes and restaurans, great shopping and three farmers markets make this the perfect home away from home in the center of Athens.

“A Traveler's Dream 'Home Away'”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2014

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!”

Reviewed 4 May 2013

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.
