Description from manager

Description

If you’re traveling with kids, you need comfort, convenience and value. You’ll discover that and more at our Lykavittos View Duplex Penthouse.

A secluded, yet central Athens location. (Check.) A variety of comfortable sleeping arrangements and all modern conveniences. (Absolutely.) Views of Mount Lykavittos from your private veranda – make that two private verandas. (Have you started packing yet?)

PEACEFUL VIEWS

You won’t believe the peace and quiet you’ll enjoy in this location, a residential building in an authentic downtown neighborhood that’s both serene and in the heart of the action. Two verandas provide perfect views of Athens' most spectacular natural wonder. Mount Lykavittos, a limestone hill where wolves once roamed, looms majestically over the city. Contemplate its beauty while sipping your morning coffee or toast your once-in-a-lifetime holiday with a glass of wine at sunset.

FOR FIVE-STAR FAMILIES

At Greek Vacation Rentals, we furnish our properties to feel exactly like home because they are home (it's where we stay when we are in town). You’ll find contemporary decor and colorful art on the walls; clean tiled living spaces and couches to sink into with a good book.

You’ll also find everything you need to create memorable family meals (be sure to visit the two local farmers’ markets first) and to take care of the little things without disrupting your family time. That means all the kitchenware you need, coffee machine, dishwasher and full-sized washer and dryer – a rarity in Athens rentals.

We want you to feel at home, but we want you to feel spoiled too. High thread-count linens, fluffy robes, and organic Greek bath products add that indulgent vacation feel. Plus, we can provide expert concierge services if you need help to plan your days. Ask us how to arrange a private chef, wine-tasting, or a tour guide of the city!

2.5 BEDROOMS / 2 BATHROOMS

Families and groups of up to 8 people sleep like babies in our bedrooms. (We don't skimp when it comes to American-style comforts, like imported Sealy Posturepedic mattresses.)

Young kids love the king-sized sleeping alcove attached to one of the bedrooms, which gives little explorers their own space while staying close to mom and dad (who have a plush Queen bed to themselves). The second bedroom comes with a Double and two twins. All rooms are airy and modern, with bright pops of color.

Upstairs, a full bathroom tiled in neutral tones features an American-style bath and shower combo with glass doors. On the main floor, you’ll find a convenient second bathroom with walk-in shower.

ADVENTURE ON YOUR DOORSTEP

The best part of a staying at the Mount Lykavittos View Duplex Penthouse is the chance to live in one of Athens' most likable neighborhoods, so get ready to eat, drink, and live like a local!

You’ll find 4 local squares right outside the building, where locals and suburban Athenians choose to relax (be sure to join them for a coffee!), as well as parks and cafes dotted throughout the city. Plus, you’re within walking distance to the Acropolis and the city’s rich historic center. Explore world-renowned museums and soak up culture on every corner. With such a relaxing haven to call home during your stay, you’ll have plenty of energy for sightseeing.

Our Lykavittos View Duplex Penthouse is the perfect place for families with children or small groups to get away from it all – in the middle of it all - without spending a fortune.

Getting around

Historical and modern Athens at your feet! While the historical centre is just a 15 - 30 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!!

Interaction with guest

Basil and I hope we've figured out the perfect mix of helping as we host. Pre-arrival we'll help with everything from transfers and tours to stocking the fridge - and you'll arrive armed with our special welcome file with tips & maps to our favorite off the beaten path dining spots. And when we arrange your transfers you won't need to worry about getting in and settling down quickly. We'll personally meet you if we're in town, or our team will be waiting, and we'll make sure you've got the lay of the land and answer questions about the neighborhood and Athens. We've got someone on call 24/7, so you need not worry about a thing.

“Great Place to Stay in Athens!”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2017

My wife and just returned from a wonderful 8 days in Athens with our two adult sons. Our accommodations at the Lykavittos Hill View Duplex Penthouse were perfect: a great apartment that was clean, roomy, secure and attractive with a balcony, well-appointed kitchen and two baths. The apartment was also in a great neighborhood where the sites of Athens are accessible by foot (about a half-hour walk to Syntagma or Hadrian’s Arch), a cheap cab ride (5 euros) or public transit. The neighborhood where the apartment is also fantastic: filled with Athens locals, groceries, coffee stores, bakeries, banks and restaurants. Also, very few tourists. Although we speak no Greek, merchants were more than willing to help figure out what you wanted, and usually there was someone around that could interpret. Carole and her staff were great, making us feel at home and catering to our needs. We initially thought about attending a performance at the Epidavros Theatre, but figured we couldn’t manage to drive there and back by ourselves. Carole arranged for a wonderful day trip with a wonderful driver, Nicos, who took us on a 12 hour trip to Corinth, Mycenae, Napflio, and finally to the performance at Epidavros, getting back to Athens securely and entertainingly. While we initially found this apartment on a third party site, we would recommend booking directly with Carole as she has her own web-based billing system both for apartment rental and booking tours.

Response from the manager Basil and I are so happy we were able to offer you a great home away from home in Athens. It's so great when our guests share in the discovery of our little village within the city. And finally, thanks for allowing me to help you experience a live performance at Epidaurus - a memory that I hope will last a lifetime. Hoping you'll have a chance to return to Greece and we'll be able to help you plan another great family experience!

“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.
