Space 52 m²
Property type apartment

Overview

About the property

2 rooms, one with a double bed and a living room-that sleeps 2 people

Vanna's elegant downtown place (direct airport line) is ideally located in the heart of Athens but away from the business area, near Hilton, Divani Caravel Hotels, 1 metro stop to the main down-town square Syntagma, and 2 stops for the Acropolis, Plaka, Monastiraki and other main sights, 5 min. from University campus. Evangelismos, the nearest metro station is a 15 min. walk from apartment.

Touristic down-town area is also accessible on foot in 30 the athletic souls and not only. Direct metro line from the airport.

The beaches and ports are accessible by public transportation, such as tram, metro, x-press-bus, which runs 24 h. and you can catch at the Hilton Hotel.

Everything you need for a convenient and comfortable stay is at your feet. In Kaisariani area, there are coffee shops, restaurants, 2 children park, a winery shop, bakery, super-market, all just around the corner.

Vanna's place features wood floors, cabinets and furniture that makes the atmosphere warm and cozy. Light blue color and pictures of Greek places on the walls will take you away to white pebbled or sandy beaches, crystal clear water and blue skies, the colors of Greece.

On the sunny balcony, enjoy your breakfast or any of your favorite meal. At your arrival some wine, fruit,snacks will definitely make your day or night.

For better knowledge of the area you can see reviews for Caravel and Hilton Hotels in Athens.

I want other people to enjoy the sun,explore the archaeological sights and everything my beautiful country has to offer without having to pay a fortune.

About Vanna

We are Spyros, Vanna,George and Helena, 16 and 13 years old children. We are both in our 40's. I lived in Los Angeles for many years and I used to teach the English language here in Greece. My husband works for the city Hall and also installs awnings. We bought this apartment as an investment and at first it was rented out by the month. After the last render left we decided to renovate it and turn it into a vacation rental. It took us a long time to fix it and furnish it but it was worth it because it has turned into a cozy getaway that adequately fits our guests' needs. I am so happy that I have started this business because I have the opportunity to meet wonderful people from around the world. I do not even see it as a business, I see myself as a person who can provide tourists a place as a starting point to explore my beautiful city.

Vanna purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Vanna chose Attica

I love my apartment. I have personally decorated it , wanted to give my guests a taste of Greece. For that reason, I have painted it light blue, using wood in kitchen and furniture. I have decorated the walls with pictures of greek islands and put some greek art around on souvenirs. I keep adding things to the place to make my guests stay comfortable. I am here for them and happy to help them in any way I can. They must know that they now have a friend in Athens.

What makes this apartment unique

Baby crib (cot) available.

Children's toys, books, board-games, magazines, mostly in English but in other languages too.

Autonomous heating for keeping warm as you wish.

Nice stay in Athens

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay because the apartment is very confortable, not far from bus and subway stations. We found everything we needed. It was also good to visit Athens in winter.

Lovely, well equipped apartment,centrally located, within walking distance of major attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, small but perfect for 2/3 people. We were impressed by Vanna, she picked us up from the airport, was extremely helpful in all aspects of our stay, and along with her husband, provided us with a tour itinerary for our road trip around the Peloponnese.

I would stay again.

There are numerous bars and restaurants within easy walking distance, shops and small supermarkets on your door step.

We walked to all the tourist destinations, it took about 20mins. to get to Syntagma Square. The metro is close by, and by far the best way to get to the airport.

The traffic in Athens is heavy!

All in all a wonderful experience. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Thanks Vanna, hope to see you again someday. Harry and Elizabeth UK

Comfort and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Athens was wonderful thanks to Vanna and her wonderful hospitality. The apartment is very comfortable, it has everything you need. The kitchen, bathroom are equipped in the best way. The apartment is near the metro and near the center. In the first evening in Athen we went to the hill Lycabettus, the best place for viewing the city, which is very close to our apartment. It was a magical vision! Vanna was very kind, when she met us with heavy suitcases and tired children and drove the car to the apartment. We all really enjoyed it and we will definitely return to Athens and stop again at Vanna!

A nice stay in Athens

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement de Vanna est très bien placé pour qui veut vivre la vie athénienne le temps d'un séjour. Près du centre et à l'abri des touristes, on trouve tout dans le quartier. Je conseille particulièrement les tavernes de Kaissariani. Près de très beaux musées également et du métro. L'appartement est très propre, bien équipé et accueillant. Nous y retournerons.

Except for the city busy day and night life, the area has to offer some nature exploring. In a mile or 2 away there is a forest with a monasteri, a beautiful walk in nature, enjoy a picnic, have your coffee in the fresh air,or just relax. Also,there is Lycabettus Hill with a church on the top offering a panoramic view of the city which is reachable either on foot or bus and a lift that takes you up to the top. Walking to the city center is also very interesting as there are museums,Galleries and the National Garden with animals,children amusement park, an oasis of the down-town area.
