Enjoy a luxurious stay at this newly refurbished light-filled penthouse on the seventh floor of a building at the heart of Athens and immerse yourself in the city’s unique history and bustling life. It’s 3’ to Syntagma (& the metro station), 7’ to Plaka, 10’ to the Acropolis. A short walk to the main sites & the shopping & nightlife districts of Athens. Sunbathe on your private terrace & relish the Acropolis view while relaxing in the pool. Take a soothing walk in the nearby National Garden.
Occupying the top floor and terrace of a seven-floor building, the penthouse offers extraordinary views to the Acropolis and the unique Athenian skyline. The penthouse and the terrace have been newly refurbished by a prize-winning Athenian architect to provide comfort and luxury while adhering to a minimal aesthetic matching that of the Greek landscape.
The terrace, including a small plunge pool (2.2 m x 2.2 m) and built sofas, is designed to offer maximum privacy while not restricting the views. In the warm months of the year (mid April-late October) the large sliding terrace door stays open creating a continuous space, partly covered, party open-air. The pool is heated from October to April so you can enjoy it throughout the year.
The penthouse has a king size bed (180 cm x 200 cm) as well as a pullout couch that sleeps one additional person. There is a large Acropolis-view desk ideal as a work space and a flat screen TV. The bathroom also has an Acropolis view. There is a dining table and a kitchen equipped with all the things you'll need to make breakfast and simple meals (let’s not forget, the area is teeming with restaurants!).
The penthouse has a high-speed Wi-Fi. It's fully air-conditioned and has underfloor heating. Towels, bed linen and covers as well as bath supplies are included. The kitchen is equipped with hot plates, a microwave oven and a refrigerator. It has an espresso machine, a coffee press and a water boiler. All necessary utensils, cutlery and dishware are also provided.
After you enter the building on the ground floor, take the left-hand elevator that goes all the way to the seventh floor, where the apartment is located.
When on the seventh floor, you will see to your right as you exit the elevator the white door of the apartment.
You have the exclusive use of the entire apartment and of the outdoor area surrounding it except from the terrace area beyond the glass door which remains locked.
