Overview

Photos and Description of the Athens vacation condo rental

Perfect penthouse sleeps 1 - 7, WiFi, Views, Walk to sites, cafes, parks, shops

This stunning duplex has breathtaking views of Athens' most spectacular natural landmark: the hill where wolves once roamed, today home to the tiny whitewashed church of St George, the "chic" peak of Athens, Mount Lykavittos (or Lucabettus, as it may be known to the English speaking world). It has 2.5 bedrooms, including the lofted Queen sleeping alcove (which kids just love!), and 2 full bathrooms.

The open floor plan living room opens out to one of two verandas in the penthouse. Our guests often comment that they spend more time relaxing in the outdoor living area or dining al fresco on the veranda than in the living room! There are two full bathrooms, one with an American style shower/bathtub combination, the other with a shower only. The bedrooms on the second level each open out onto a smaller veranda with additional seating. Personally, this is my favorite spot for a cup of tea or glass of wine late at night – it's beautifully peaceful, and the views are lovely.

This duplexed penthouse sits on the top two floors of a small residential building on the quietest side street in Athens. Our Greek friends are always amazed when we have them for dinner on one of the Duplex penthouse verandas (we own two adjacent to one another), because they can’t believe that the bustling cafes & restaurants of vibrant Ymittou, full of people, are just a block away, while perched on our penthouse veranda, it is as quiet as can be.

Our homes are, and always have been, 100% smoke free.

Indoor parking, daily maid service, private chef, private guide, airport and port transfer are all available, inquire for fees.

Ask about our morning breakfast buffet, delivered to your table. A selection of freshly baked Greek pitas, seasonal fruit, fresh local yogurt, honey, cheese, and freshly squeezed juice. If you are interested in Greek cousine, we can arrange for cooking in house.

Basil & Carole's American homes in Athens are often copied, but never duplicated. We're still real vacation rental owners - we stay in our home when we are in Athens - so it is truly still our own home away from home. This means we know the beds are great, and the kitchen stays stocked with everything you need to really cook. But we love to be tourists in our adopted city, too. This means that staying with us offers you the very best of both worlds in downtown Athens. It has the convenience of being close to all of Athens' major sites, with a comfortable home to call your own, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:

You can book and pay online but you will still be required to sign our booking form and provide a list of guest names and ages along with a major credit card as we don't take a cash damage deposit.

Guests arriving after 8:30 PM are required to use our recommended transfer service. We do not offer late night 'do it yourself' arrivals.
