I am a mother of 3. I am a Greek, born in Istanbul. I live in Athens the last 40 years but have not stopped travelling.

I love exploring different cultures, traditions and cuisines from all over the world.

I am a very welcoming and friendly person and I get great pleasure in going out and about, continuously discovering secret corners in the lovely city of Athens with my

friends and family.

As a hostess, I will be happy to share any tip you may need concerning Athenian gastronomy, nightlife and cultural events to make you feel welcome in my beautiful city.

ANNA RODOPOULOU purchased this villa in 2017


Plaka is one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods of Athens. There is a mystical atmosphere about it and a historical significance too (the house is surrounded by old streets including Tripodon, the most ancient Athenian street) that make it special in my heart.

What makes this villa unique

The neighbourhood of Plaka makes you feel as if you are in a village. It has a unique beauty and calmness, an unparalleled character and unique architecture that almost make you forget you are right at the centre of Athens, with historic sites, shops, restaurants and streets buzzing with life around you.

Having a coffee at the balcony that overlooks Lisiou street is a must!

The PERFECT Location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Anna and her friends who made 3 teen girls and their "Guncles" feel most welcome in this perfectly located apartment. With 3 bedrooms plus the attic we had more than enough room for all of us at the base of the Acropolis and in the heart of the Plaka. With restaurants, shops, bars and a whole lot of history literally within steps of our door we each had something that we loved just around the next corner.

The apartment itself has everything anyone could need and was clean and comfortable. Anna made arrangements for us to be collected at and returned to the Airport after our Island hops and we were literally deposited at the door to the apartment. We were greeted by a lovely woman who showed us around and gave us the lay of the land. We ate at both adjacent restaurants where the mere mention of Anna's name opened hearts and hospitality galore.

We loved being so close to the Acropolis as we ventured up there a couple times, one late afternoon and once at 8 when it opened and there were very few visitors. The upper entrance is only a 10 minute walk form the apartment. The Roman Agora, Ancient Agora, and Temple of Zeus the Olympian are within 5 minutes walk of our Bougainvillea draped enclave that actually is featured on Post Cards. We watched from the little balcony on the 2nd floor as tourists took pictures of the beautiful approach to our block.

This is a CITY apartment that breeds CITY charm. If you're looking for silence and not to see another soul that would be tough anywhere in Athens but here there is very little car traffic. Foot traffic is constant and the wafting sounds of music and laughter lasts into the wee hours. For us this added to the charm of it all and we loved it.

Thank you again to ass as we couldn't have been happier with our choice of an Athenian Apartment with style, charm and warmth. Allowing us to keep our bags in the apartment till Mid-afternoon while we tooled around waiting for our 5:30 flight was as accommodating as anyone could expect.

Don't hesitate to book and stay here.

Welcome to Athens--you will certainly enjoy your stay at this lovely home! Our family of 6 adults were centrally located in the heart of Plaka and could walk to all the historical sights in the area. There was no shortage of restaurants, shoppng and cuture abounded.

The home was spacious, well maintained and impecably decorated with love. This home could easily accomodate 10 people. Our host Anna was very helpful in providing transportaion from the port and to the airport. She also shared her insight on "things to do" and set up a guide for visiting the historical sights.

We really enjoyed our stay in Athens!

Perfect Plaka stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved Anna’s apartment in the Plaka. Anna is a gracious host and made herself available for us at any time. She left some snacks, milk, and water for us and there is a fun Restaurant (Zorbas) across the street with great food and music on the weekends. They offer a 20% discount to Anna’s guests. There’s also a cafe right next door to get breakfast or enjoy a coffee outside. We walked everywhere! Perfect location.
