Each apartment has, also, a fully-equipped kitchen, free wi-fi and an artistically decorated living room that is well-suited for relaxing, reading or even formal meetings and seminars. They are both fully furnished with all of the standard modern appliances and includes a TV and a stereo system and have a retro feel to it.
Near the bedrooms there are book shelves with select titles in English and Greek for your reading pleasure. The living room, which is one of the most spacious rooms of the apartment, displays a unique style of decoration that you will find no where else, with beautiful textured walls constructed from stone by local craftsmen.
From the doorway you can feel the understated power of this room. An air of sophistication, wisdom and - if it werent for the modern day sounds of cars and scooters drifting in through the window- youd think you were in a 1950s study.
Antique furniture scatters the room, and each beautiful stone wall is accentuated with thematic art- Egyptian papyrus, Grecian plates, and Victorian frames. You could spend forever and a day taking in the tiny details that make this room so interesting. From the vintage wooden treasure chest to the stacked encyclopedias and trinkets lining the dark wood cabinets, which strategically placed, add to the roomantic charm.
If, at some point, you're finally able to tear yourself away from this enchanting room, perhaps you'll be able to appreciate the way in which the rest of the apartment gracefully allows the Stone Room to bask in its opulence.
Simple, but by no means boring, the walls of the quaint entrance hall are lined with paintings and drawings, which seem to be arranged almost categorically, creating a unique oceanic theme. Classic paintings of ships, boats and pebble decorated picture frames work well to highlight the impressive shell displays. Again, little trinkets dotted around do well to complete the relaxed atmosphere.
Although the two bedrooms are uncluttered they are cozy and full of personality. As with the rest of the apartment, art work hangs strikingly on the walls, with knick-knacks placed among some vintage chairs or tables to add to the character. And, with the sounds of the world bustling by, one can easily slip into the dream world that this apartment so obviously represents.
Now onto the outdoors. In the heart of Athens, you can reach the Thissio station, which is where the the main touristic area in the city begins, in circa 15 minutes on foot, and will be close to the awe-inspiring Acropolis. For those who wish to partake of the vibrant Athenian nightlife, be sure to pay a visit to the trendy, popular area of Gazi, where you can find lots of local bars, clubs pubs etc., all of which are within about 15 minutes walking distance from your apartment.
Another popular area of Athens that offers exciting nightlife is Monastiraki, which is only 10 minutes away from your apartment, and just five minutes walking distance to the nearest underground station - Metaksourgio. By choosing to stay at this superb house you will be just one metro stop distance from the main railway station in Athens, making both your arrival and departure fast and convenient. There is also a bus stop close by that will enable you to travel directly to the Intercity Bus Station of Kifissos; your travel time, once again, is circa 15 minutes.
If you are a history enthusiast, you can visit the Acropolis and the new Acropolis museum by traveling only four metro stops from the Metaxourgeio station. The New Municipal Gallery of Athens is 200 metres downstreet.
For those who may wish to hold their own seminars and bring their own groups, you can make use of the spacious, atmospheric meeting room, which has a large table that could be used by six people, with the possibility for groups of eight people.
If your group might prefer a to take a fun, personal, guided tour of the city, please be sure to make your request.
The amiable Greek proprietor of the apartment takes pride and pleasure in being available to assist his valued guests, and is only too happy to provide any information you may require during your visit to Athens to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.

Reviews of this property
We were happy with the apartment that provided plenty of space for all three of us.Its very central location, just a few metro stops from Syntagma was very useful when exploring the city. The artistic mind of the owner is evident in many items in the apartment and we profited from Vassilis suggestions of what to do and where to go. Vassilis apartment contributed to an enjoyable stay a Athens.
It might be useful to add glasses and knives in the kitchen. From and to the airport, travelers should not take the bus, but take the metro instead. It ist faster.

I could be tempted to say that it was a very bad stay, that the appartment was awful and that Vasilis and his mother are unpleasant people. I could do that so that noone wants to go there anymore, which would allow me to come again anytime I would like.
Yes but... That would be a very bad lie.
I was very lucky to spend these four days in Vasilis' and Sofia's appartment. The place does not look like any other, it has what you call "a soul", a spirit. Lot of place, lots of heteroclit objects, a quiet street. Staying there, in the center of Athens, 15mns by foot from Monastiraki square, quiclky felt like being at home in this wonderful town.
As some people before me, I want to insist on the fact that one of the best part of my journey here was my meeting with Vasilis and Sofia. Too bad, I had not so much time to talk with you but the little time shared was so friendly, generous and interesting. I already miss you !
No doubt I will come back again. For Athens, for the welcoming appartment and for its adorable owners. Thank you !
Nice Flat and Vasilis and his mother are very friendly hosts. Next Metro is only 5 minutes walk .. Psirri and Monastraki it´s about 10 minutes to walk. I had a great time and really enjoyed my trip to Athens. Next time there, I know where to say.
What a beautiful and cute place to stay!! I got way more value than what I paid for. and the owner is very friendly and helpful. If I had the time I would stay longer. Thnks Vasilis
Apartment comfortable and great for moving around in the city, close to Metro and services. Pleasant acceptance, recommended. Thanks for the hospitality in a beautiful city.
Arriving in this house is easy; harder to leave! It feels like home right in Athens. A beautiful kitchen was available, a large bathroom and a lounge. Everything is very clean and nice decor, young and fanciful. It is on the first floor of a house in a small street. Rooms have both air-conditioning which is great because the summer it is very hot outside! I'm tired and cranky arrival. Vasilis was delicate, he wants his guests to feel good; he has confidence in them. His mom was super nice. I shared the apartment with two other ladies, very discreet and quiet. I stayed two more nights and at the end I was not able to go. I really felt at home. It was a long time that this had not happened. Thank you to Vasilis. Oh yes! it is two small steps from the subway, 6 minutes by bus (51) of the bus station which makes traveling in the Peloponnese! Enjoy your stay in those who follow me!
Arriver dans cette maison est facile ; en partir plus difficile ! On a l'impression d'être chez soi en plein Athènes. On a à disposition une belle cuisine, une grande salle d'eau et un salon. Tout est très propre et la déco sympa, jeune et fantaisiste. On est au premier étage d'une maison dans une petite rue. Les chambres ont toutes les deux l'air conditionné ce qui est génial car l'été il fait bien chaud dehors ! Je suis arrivée fatiguée et de mauvaise humeur. Vasilis a été délicat, il a envie que ses hôtes se sentent bien; il a confiance en eux. Sa maman fut super gentille. J'ai partagé l'appartement avec deux autres dames, très discrètes et calmes. Je suis restée deux nuits de plus et à la fin je n'arrivais plus à partir. Je me sentais vraiment chez moi. Il y avait longtemps que cela ne m'était pas arrivé. Merci à Vasilis. Ah oui! on est à deux petits pas du métro , à 6 minutes en bus ( 51) de la station de bus qui permet de voyager dans le Péloponèse! Bon séjour à ceux qui me suivront !
