About this home

Our idyllic urban cottage combines the central position (just 450 m up the hill of the Agios Ioannis Metro Station) with the feeling of being on a Greek island, with its quietness and a breathtaking panoramic view of the sea and the whole historic center of Athens!

Furthermore, our independent 2-bedroom house has just been completely renovated and it is fully furnished and equipped, it has a marvelous cozy backyard with a vegetable garden (and you are welcome to use our fresh products). It can accommodate up to 4 people and it is the perfect solution for couples, friends, families and for business travelers and for those coming to Athens by car since it is very easy to find a parking near the house.

• Bedrooms

There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom is on the ground level and has a nice big queen size bed. It is fully furnished and decorated with taste and quality! There is also a closet and everything a sleeping room needs for a proper relaxing and restful sleep. On the upper floor, there is the second bedroom with a single bed which is very long and suitable for very tall guests. In this room, the guest will find during the hot months an A/C. Bedlinen and towels are provided.

• Bathroom

The bathroom is on the ground floor and has been completely renovated. There is a shower, a sink, a toilette and a towel radiator. Towels and amenities such as toilet paper, soap and shampoo are provided.

• Kitchen and Living room

As is usual in most traditional Greek independent houses, the kitchen is the first space you are walking in. In the Kitchen, you will find all the appliances and equipment you may need in order to properly prepare your own meals, not only breakfast! Besides the new appliances such as fridge/freezer, electric cooker, and oven, toaster, coffee machine, kettle the house has the basic amenities such as olive oil, several herbs, and spices, salt, pepper, tea, coffee, and sugar.

Please note also that the tasty olive oil is the traditional family oil and the herbs are also hand picked in the family's fields!!!

And remember, here you can prepare the salad, tomatoes, prepare a homemade lemonade, a fruit salad with the apricots, grapes, lemons and the loquats from the vegetable garden, all found in the backyard!

Of course, remember that all those products are seasonal, so in winter the variety of products might be limited. :(

Furthermore, in the kitchen, you will also find a washing machine which our guests can use for free for the duration of their stay. Next, to the kitchen, there is a dining table placed just next to the windows. You can enjoy there your sunny breakfasts in a quiet and serene environment overlooking the sea view!

Just a step away from the dining area, you have the nice living room area, with a big sofa (which also becomes a bed), a sofa table and a big flat TV screen. In this room, there is an A/C, although the house has a very good insulation and this room especially maintains a very comfortable temperature even in the hot summer days. From the living room starts the hall which leads to the bathroom and to the stairs that take you to the 2nd bedroom and to the backyard and our beautiful garden.

• Outdoors

The house has a balcony at the entrance door. It has a comfortable space for a table and a couple of chairs, enough to sip your morning coffee staring to the sea and to the roofs of Athens.

The proper yard/garden

is although on the back side of the house. To go there you will go up the stairs to the second level. There you can access the garden and check what fruits, herbs or vegetables are ready to be collected!

In the garden, there is a nice stone barbecue at your disposal. You can have your meals with your friends enjoying the breathtaking view! There is outdoor furniture to sit and relax and sunbathe in your own private space. This is a rare luxury for a house that has such an easy access to the center of Athens

By the way, there is also an independent entry to the garden (locked); please bear in mind that the owner might need to enter the garden (and only the garden) to take care of it from time to time ;)

In our urban cottage, you will feel like being in a traditional Greek village with the convenience of being just 3 metro stations away from the Acropolis and 4 from Syntagma square.

And also, if the panoramic view from the kitchen or from the garden overlooking south-westwards to the sea and the Saronic Gulf is not enough, then head to the secret spots back door where you might discover a place where you can sit on the fields and enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the historical center with its 3 famous hills (Acropolis, Filopappos, and Lycabettus). A beautiful spot known only by the people of this neighborhood!

The owner lives in the same area and he might enter the vegetable garden (from a different independent entry of course!) to take care of it.

Please notice that our house is on the top of a small hill. If you arrive by foot, there is a bit of exercise walking up the hill, but not even that much and the quietness and the view are well worth it!

Also please consider that to reach the house and inside the house, there are steps and stairs. If you have problems walking up/down the steps or other impairments it might be a bit uncomfortable.

The neighborhood of Agios Ioannis/Dafni is traditionally a very nice and quiet location (here was also living one of the most important Greek Painters of the last Century: Giorgos Bouzianis; btw his House, just 200m away is now a museum. A hidden gem, check it out!).

Unlike the most parts of the city center, the buildings here are smaller and airier, traditional maisonettes with character. So you might get the feeling of living in a village, but you are really just a stone´s throw of distance from the heart of Athens and its beauties. And by metro, you will be there very, very quickly!

Also, you will find all that you might need just at some steps of distance from our home: supermarkets, cafés, shops, offices, banks, post office, pharmacies, fast bus and metro station and much, much more. :)
