Our idyllic urban cottage combines the central position (just 450 m up the hill of the Agios Ioannis Metro Station) with the feeling of being on a Greek island, with its quietness and a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea and the whole historic center of Athens! Furthermore, our independent 2-bedroom house has just been completely renovated and it is fully furnished and equipped, it has a marvelous cozy backyard with a vegetable garden (and you are welcome to use our fresh products). It can accommodate up to 5 people and it is the perfect solution for couples, friends, families and for business travelers and for those coming to Athens by car since it is very easy to find a parking near the house
There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the ground level and has a nice big queen size bed. It is fully furnished and decorated with taste and quality! There is also a closet and everything a sleeping room needs for a proper relaxing and restful sleep. On the upper floor, there is the second bedroom with a single bed which is very long and suitable for very tall guests. In this room, the guest will find during the hot months a portable A/C. Bedlinen and towels are provided
The bathroom is on the ground floor and has been completely renovated. There is a shower, a sink, a toilette and a towel radiator. Towels and amenities such as toilet paper, soap and shampoo are provided
• Kitchen and Living room
As is usual in most traditional Greek independent houses, the kitchen is the first space you are walking in. In the Kitchen, you will find all the appliances and equipment you may need in order to properly prepare your own meals, not only breakfast! Besides the new appliances such as fridge/freezer, electric cooker, and oven, toaster, coffee machine, kettle the house has the basic amenities such as olive oil, several herbs, and spices, salt, pepper, tea, coffee, and sugar
Please note also that the tasty olive oil is the traditional family oil and the herbs are also hand picked in the family's fields!!!
And remember, here you can prepare the salad, tomatoes, prepare a homemade lemonade, a fruit salad with the apricots, grapes, lemons and the loquats from the vegetable garden, all found in the backyard!
Of course, remember that all those products are seasonal, so in winter the variety of products might be limited. :(
Furthermore, in the kitchen, you will also find a washing machine which our guests can use for free for the duration of their stay. Next, to the kitchen, there is a dining table placed just next to the windows. You can enjoy there your sunny breakfasts in a quiet and serene environment overlooking the sea view!
Just a step away from the dining area, you have the nice living room area, with a big sofa (which also becomes a double bed), a sofa table and a big flat TV screen. In this room, there is an A/C, although the house has a very good insulation and this room especially maintains a very comfortable temperature even in the hot summer days. From the living room starts the hall which leads to the bathroom and to the stairs that take you to the 2nd bedroom and to the backyard and our beautiful garden
The house has a balcony at the entrance door. It has a comfortable space for a table and a couple of chairs, enough to sip your morning coffee staring to the sea and to the roofs of Athens
The proper yard/garden is although on the back side of the house. To go there you will go up the stairs to the second level. There you can access the garden and check what fruits, herbs or vegetables are ready to be collected!
In the garden, there is a nice stone barbecue at your disposal. You can have your meals with your friends enjoying the breathtaking view! There is outdoor furniture to sit and relax and sunbathe in your own private space. This is a rare luxury for a house that has such an easy access to the center of Athens
By the way, there is also an independent entry to the garden (locked); please bear in mind that the owner might need to enter the garden (and only the garden) to take care of it from time to time ;)
