This 1930's apartment has been characterized as one of Athens's a most beautiful heritage apartment. It contains artifacts from various epochs of Greek history. It has an amazing bohemian ambiance in original 1930 architecture.

It is one of the city’s few remaining authentic Art Deco style buildings. Situated on a tree-lined cafe-filled pedestrian only street, where the Athenian ‘crème de la crème’ rich and famous resided between the 1930’s until 1980’s, such as Maria Callas and many shipowners. (often visitors at the apartment).

Within a short distance from the Acropolis and the historic center of Athens, the apartment overlooks the renowned tree-lined, café-filled, pedestrian zone. In the late 1980’s it was bought and renovated by an international banker (and earlier Greek-resistance hero) and his wife artist and collector. After many decades of neglect, the eccentric couple, took on the 360sqm apartment for renovation. Staying true to its original style, they filled it with their collections and transformed it into a unique living environment again. The apartment has very high ceilings and large rooms are large. It still has the original paint on the walls and is very atmospheric. Apartment includes original portraits of Maria Callas, original works by Lord Byron's and Greek art.

(The apartment is normally inhabited by the owners when not rented.)

If you wish to host a private dinner- in addition to your rental, the home offers catered Ancient Greek gastronomy & service at an extra charge.

10 min by foot to METRO and the National Archaeological Museum. The location is 10 minutes taxi ride to the HISTORICAL CENTER. The home is located near a main Boulevard of Athens named 'Patission', from where you can hop into a taxi to take you to the Acropolis and the historical center in 15 minutes. (Don’t bother with buses, taxis are faster & come out to the same amount for 4 persons). Into swimming? The nearest beach at 'Faliron', which also has a prestigious yacht marina, is about 20 minutes away by taxi.

Also, walking distance from the apartment, are regular buses leaving for Sounion and Rafina port.
