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.

Clean and charming. Great location just steps to the Plaka and new Acropolis Museum. All other important archeological sites within easy walking distance. Ample choice of restaurants around the corner as well as a wide selection of shops. We highly recommend this cosmopolitan flat!

Efi was wonderful. The apartment was very centrally located. Efi helped arrange transportation from the airport. She also spent time showing us the sites and restaurants in the area on a map. Clean, well equipped apartment. Highly recommend!

Fashionable Flat

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for an Athens stay. The location is great. A short walk to the metro and the tram gets you anywhere you want to travel in Athens. We even took the 45 min trip on the metro to the airport. The “unharried” Acropolis gate is only a few blocks away. The neighborhood feels safe as we walked around late in the evening enjoying the views and the many restaurants. Even though it is in a very busy area the apartment is very quiet inside. The apartment has nice security features for staying in a big city. Beds and linen were very comfortable. The air conditioners were reliable. We enjoyed our stay in Athens and much of that was staying in this wonderful home in a neighborhood instead of a hotel. We would definitely stay here if we return to Athens and would recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Amazing property! Best in Greece!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property! Located in a beautiful area of Greece close to Plaka and a stone throw from cafes/restaurants... The property itself was immaculate, so spacious and very modern with all the comforts you need... You will not find another property like this in Greece... Thank you Efi for everything, you were wonderful to deal with and we look forward to returning to your same apartment when we next come to Greece...

Great apartment! Great people!

  • 5 of 5

This Athens apartment was lovely, cozy, and modern. It's within walking distance of the Akropolis and all of the tourist areas of central Athens. Everything was new and very clean. Our host sent a driver to pick us up from the airport- and then the same on to take us back to the airport at 4 am! Efi and her driver were easy, friendly, and fun, and gave us great tips for our stay. Whenw e return to Athens we will definitely stay in her place again.

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.
