About Dionysios Skalos

I am a 65 year old pensioner currently dividing my time between Athens and the beautiful island of Aegina, 45' minutes away from the port .

Dionysios Skalos purchased this villa in 1998

Why Dionysios Skalos chose Pangrati

Mets has been my neighborhood ever since I was a child. I have traveled a lot, from India to Brazil, from New York to Oslo and have lived a couple of years in Paris, but my incurable homesickness has always lead me back . So when in 1998 I had the luck to find the property on Archimidous , a wide prestigious street which I Ioved, I grasped the opportunity. Initially I renovated the small neoclasical building in the back of the patio where I installed my workshop. At the time I was designing and manufacturing my "Hardcoredesign Collection: expensive toys for adult children". That's why almost all the pieces of furniture of Kallimarmaro Residence are the prototypes of this collection. Then, in 2001 the construction of the new building was completed according to my own plans, drawings and... illusions.

What makes this villa unique

An introverted, oasis- like residence in the heart of a bustling city. You are welcome to be my guest(s).

Very nice property with a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised plus more. A surprise was a nicely stocked refrigerator with fresh fruit, refreshments, eggs, snacks, etc. The owner provided a tour of the property as well as information on the sorrounding area, which is safely walkable with several restaurants nearby. The owner was nearby and checked in with us regularly to assure we were satisfied. Everything was clean and the apartment contained many interesting appointments. I would stay here again.

Beautiful apartment, even better service, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. 6 adults, very comfortable with special rooms some of the actually offer a higher level of privacy.

The apartment is beautiful - very uniquely designed, which enhances the experience.

The pool is a special touch - rare in a location at the center of town. We enjoyed a swim here and there, I can imagine families and children having a ball here!

The location is great - not right in the middle of the loud city center, but a nice 20 minute walk to the central attractions - The Acropolis, Plaka neighborhood and the market. The apartment does have all the stores and restaurants you need just around the corner.

Worth noting - the Calimarmaro Stadium which is literally across the street from the apartment - Amazing!

But above and beyond all are the owners - the kind hearted Dionysios, and his lovely daughter, Eirini. They go above and beyond anything I have ever encountered. Not only making sure the stay in the apartment goes well - stocking up the kitchen and making sure any concern is answered immediately - but also making the visit as best as possible with advice, reservations, answers to our questions, and practicaly anything we need. We’ve been there five days, and consider them friends- that should give you a clue to their character and willingness to help out.

Whenever we go back to Athens, no question, we’re booking the Calimarmaro Residence again... Highly recommended!!!

Welcoming and perfect after a long travel day!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 chose this home for a one-night stay after a long travel day from the United States and before boarding our chartered sailboat the following day out of the Alimos marina (with DMS sailing-highly recommended). The location was great (30 minutes from the Athens airport and 20 minutes to the marina). We had full run of the house (meaning the owner did not stay with us). There was plenty of room for us to spread out and plenty of comfortable beds for us to all get a great night’s rest. Could easily have slept 3-4 more people. Each couple in our group of 6 (3 Couples) had comfy queen beds and there was another area of the home with a full bed and a pull-out couch we didn't need to use. We took a short walk to the "square" for a little shopping and had a great dinner in the center of the square. The pool was refreshing at the end of our night and was the perfect night cap after the long day of travel. The home was fully furnished and stocked with all the amenities we could have needed, plenty of towels, WIFI, coffee, etc. The home had top notch security, although it didn't seem to be needed as we felt perfectly safe walking the streets at night. The true gem of this home was the OWNER, Dionysios!! He greeted us upon our arrival, showed us around the home and made sure we were all comfortable and pointed us in the right direction to town (again walking distance). Not only did Dionysios stock the fridge with fresh fruit, eggs, bread, fresh herbs, juices, milk and everything we needed to make our own breakfast in the morning (which was easy to prepare in the fully equipped kitchen, including a juicer) but he also saw us off the next afternoon with 6 icy cold beers, a hug and a smile! It was exactly what we needed to start our 11-day trip to Greece off on the right foot. You will not be disappointed in this unique home and will adore the generous host! Thank you Dionysios for your hospitality and PS.... we picked 5 limes from the tree in the courtyard and used them for our drinks on the boat! SMILES! Thank you.

Great location! Owners super nice!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights here with 4 adults and 4 children. Plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved the pool (and the adults too). The kitchen was well stocked with fruit, drinks, vegetables, bread, coffee, everything you need. The owner was super friendly. The location was good - quiet neighborhood within walking distance of Acropolis.

Exceptional property and service in the heart of Athens!

  • 5 of 5

An oasis in the heart of Athens! We began our first Greek holiday at the Kallimarmaro residence and I can't imagine anything better! The home is modern, comfortable and spacious with delightful surprises in every corner. My two boys (12 and 7) had so much fun discovering everything that makes this home so unique. Basketball, pool, fruit trees and so much more! Our host, Dionysis, was incredibly accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything (and then some) that we needed for a delightful stay!! Thank you so much everything... 5 stars without a doubt! We've been using VRBO for years and this property and the host was exceptional. Highly recommended for anyone, especially for families who would like to explore the city and have an oasis as their home base in Athens. Thank you for making our Greek holiday unforgettable:)

Mets is a lively and trendy neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars, some of the best in the city, ranging from souvlaki to sushi, with a corresponding variety of prices as well as many bakeries, pastry shops, mini markets and wine shops.

The park around Kallimarmaro ( Ardittos hill ) right across the street is the most popular spot for jogging . As you jog you enjoy a panoramic view of the Stadium and of Athens. You can go for a run around the oval track of the Stadium, on the footsteps of great athletes. Jog the circuit!
