Located in Plaka neighborhood heart of Athens Historical center (under the Acropolis).

You’ll love my place because of beautiful private garden, private patio view, great neighborhood (tavern as, coffee and shops), and great transport.

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and families

Transport is a cinch. 1 min walk to nearest underground (Acropolis metro), and 2 min to walk to the new Acropolis Museum

Info about the neighborhood, Plaka is the oldest district in Athens built at the foothill of the Acropolis, with picturesque neoclassical houses and mainly pedestrian streets.

Walking uphill for the Villa throught the Anafotiotika area you can enjoy a wonderful view of the city and many cafes offer a pleasant occasion to reat and cool off. Local food at the many tavernas in cool gardens or countryards, shopping for atifacts and sounenirs visiting the archeological sites like the Tower of Winds or Lysikrates Monument located next to the Villa.

Distances are short and due to Villa's prime location will give you enough time to Visit almost everything.

The best places for nightlife in Plaka are the small bars and wine bars located all around the Villa area.

Shopping in Plaka is not only the souvenirs and miniatures of the Acropolis on the contrary you can shop Leather Handmade products,Young designers,creative decorative items and Fine Art.
