The historic district of Mets lies to the east of the Acropolis, opposite the Zappeion Gardens, just south of the Panathenaic Stadium where the first modern Olympics were held in 1896.Unique for its delightful old Athenian houses dating from the 19th century, Mets is renowned for its many pedestrian streets, gardens and parks surrounding it. Right in the heart of Athens, this quiet and extremely safe residential district is home to many Greek artists, actors and writers.
Streets are shaded by flowering trees, lined with neoclassical houses, and filled with the scent of jasmine and bougainvillea: Mets is a taste of old Athens, full of pre-World War II houses with tiled roofs and charming courtyards.

Reviews of this property
We stayed three days in the upper part of the house. It has another atmosphere
than the lower one. It has antique furniture and is decorated with a lot of in-
teresting things. We liked it very much.
There is small veranda, where we liked to sit and to eat.
The kitchen and the bathroom are really cosy.
Excellente adresse tant par l'accueil, le charme de la maison, le confort et la proximité des sites à visiter
Sehr gute Lage, man kann leicht zu Fuß ins Zentrum. Die Wohnung ist ein bisschen muffig, aber sie hat wirklich Charme und ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Elisavetta ist eine sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, die uns sehr gute Tipps gegeben hat!
Die Wohnung liegt in einem erstaunlich ruhigen Wohnviertel, rund ums Haus gibt es Feigenbäume und Palmen. Dennoch ist die Lage sehr nah des Zentrums. Die Wohnung ist hübsch eingerichtet, mit schönen alten Möbeln und Teppichen. Alles ist vorhanden, uns fehlte nichts. Tina und Elissavet sind sehr herzlich und bestens organisiert. Sie schicken im Voraus viele nützliche Informationen, und man kann sich bei Fragen immer an sie wenden. Wir fühlten uns rundum wohl, sowohl in dieser Wohnung als auch in Athen, und würden wieder in diese Wohnung kommen. Ein einziger negativer Punkt war, dass die Wohnung den Geruch eines Hundes ausströmte. Ein Tipp: für den Weg ins Zetrum das Tram benützen!
Reviews for this host's other properties
We enjoyed our stay in Athens. Elissavet is a very King person willing to help you anytime. The appartment is well located and big enough for two adults and two childrens. However there is no much light inside.
We have had a wonderful time in Athens. This appartment is really charmant!!! Nice neighbourhood, quiet, terrace. nearby all the beatiful things. very nice welcome, very good that we could leave our bagage beyond reserving time. This name is very good chosen: safe, some steps from the ruins, etc.
One little thing: the door of the bathroom (not to be closed) and perhaps more for two/three people than for four people, but we are large:).
Thank you Elissavet en Tina!
This is a wonderful place to stay, the house is lovely, and very spacious, and quiet! There is also a lovely courtyard for breakfast or a quiet glass of wine in the evening. The area Mets is an oasis of peace and tranquillity in a very busy noisy city. In the morning you will wake to the sound of birdsong... The house is tucked in behind the Temple of Zeus and a very short stroll from Syntagma Square, New Acropolis Museum, and of course the Acropolis. I was met by Elissavet who is lovely, welcoming, and helpful! I loved staying here and my only regret was leaving. I do hope to return!
very comfortable apartment in a position close to the Acropolis and the central areas of Athens, and yet very quiet. Corresponds to the description that is offered, and the owner is very courteous and helpful,. We were fully satisfied with the stay!

Heerlijk plekje in hartje Athene. Heel rustig met een prachtige groene binnenplaats. Meer geschikt voor 2 dan voor 4 personen, omdat 2 bedden uitklapbedden in de woonkamer zijn. Op loopafstand van de Akropolis en om de hoek van het Panathinaikou stadion.
