About Efi Skarlatou

Hello I'm Efi, I am an architect and a mum of three girls.

I invite you to stay in my apartment in a great location of Athens, the city I grew up in, that I designed and constructed myself using the best materials in the market and a lot of joy.

Efi Skarlatou purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Efi Skarlatou chose Athens

The apartment is located in one of the most important historical areas in the country, the Acropolis area, famous in the whole world as the symbol of ancient Greek civilization and I knew I was buying a piece of it when I chose it.

I've been visiting, admiring and having fun in this area since I was a child, that's why I designed and looked after my property with a lot of joy and love.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is brand new!

The renovation was completed in 2012.

I am an architect so when I bought it I knew I would demolish it and build my own design from the beginning. So not only the design is new but also the electrical, plumbing that all is hidden under what you see.

So what I have is a brand new beautiful apartment around the corner from the Acropolis.

Excellent spacious central apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this amazing apartment, Efi the owner met us upon arrival and was more than happy to tell us all the tourist attractions that ate literally on the door step. With the apartment being just around the corner from all the main tourist attractions cafe's and restaurants you are never stuck for anywhere to go. The apartment itself is beautiful and very modern and gives you the opertunity to stay in a bit of luxury whilst away from home. I can also highly recomend the family run SMILE restaurant on the bottom corner of the street where we ate every night we were in Athens, they offer excellent quality food and a welcome I have never experienced in my 50 years of life. Go on book this apartment, you won't be disappointed. Thank you Efi x

Excellent Location - Helpful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We spent five night in this apartment prior to a cruise. The apartment is modern, well-designed, and in an excellent location a short walk from the Acropolis Museum. The owner, Efi and George, were very helpful. We arranged for George to pick us up at the airport and to take us to the port. It was so nice to have someone waiting at the airport after three long flights from the U.S. They both gave us great advice on the neighborhood and on the sites of Athens. Overall - a great stay!

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and perfect for us as a couple exploring Athens, very well provided with all the facilities for a "home from home" stay where we could self-cater or go out to the many restaurants close by. Efi was very responsive and easy to deal with when we were arranging the rental, and met us on arrival to explain everything we needed to know. All of central Athens was within walking distance, we rarely used the metro (despite the very convenient Acropoli station less than 5 mins walk away). We would strongly recommend the apartment to friends.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Efi's apartment looked just like the pictures and was great. Efi was quick to respond and great to deal with when booking the apartment. Her husband met us at the apartment and gave us some nice suggestions on Athens. The apartment was clean and the wifi worked great, which is key when travelling with teenagers. The apartment was in the perfect location for us, just around the corner from the Acropolis Museum and some nice restaurants. Our car rental was just at the end of the street which was so convenient for when we left Athens. This was the perfect place for us in Athens.

Excellent apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Efi's apartment was wonderful, clean, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect, both Acropoli metro station and the Acropolis around the corner from the apartment as well as walking distance to wonderful restaurants.

Efi was prompt and easy to communicate with prior to our visit, Efi met us at the apartment and took the time to explain the local area and give us recommendations for local restaurants which were all great.

The apartment is in a secure building on the fourth floor, there is an elevator to her door, so we felt very safe staying there.

We also appreciated the washing machine!

Thanks Efi ��

Regards Steve and Rose Wright

The apartment is located in the centre of Athens, is walking distance from the Acropolis and it’s new museum and the ancient temple of Olympian Zeus with easy access to the metro station «acropoli», the tram and the bus.

It is easy to visit the city without renting a car since you can walk to the most important highlights of the centre, take the metro to other areas of Athens or the tram to the beach (Alimos beach: 6,0 kilometres).

If you have an interest in Archeology the most interesting spots are walking distance from the apartment. The archaeological museum, the ancient market, the temple of Ifaistos and so on. But to get to the places of historical interest you walk through the old city of Plaka, Anafiotika and Monastiraki area, the flea market where you see young people, souvenir shops and little restaurants open during the whole day till late at night. Spending the whole day walking around these places and having a meal of souvlaki or moussaka at a taverna is very enjoyable. If you like the nightlife many open air clubs are in the center and near the sea a few kilometres outside the city.

The ancient Roman theatre 'Irodio' is under the Acropolis and offers excellent shows during the summer.
