We were 2 adult couples and found the apartment perfect for exploring and enjoying our stay in Athens. We walked out the door right on to the streets of the Plaka, close to both Monasteraki and Syntagma squares. Antigone welcomed us to the apartment and even baked us a spinach pie while awaiting our arrival. Overall we could not have asked for a better experience.
