Sunny Garden Apartment

An oasis in the heart of the city…This apartment opens to a private garden, so you can live both indoors and outdoors. So, you stay cool and protected from the city’s heat & noise! We are in the heart of Koukaki, a neighborhood that is on the edge of Acropolis but still keeps its local spirit, one of the safest and most vibrant Athens spots! Our street is lined with wild orange trees and old buildings, yet the flat is renovated, keeping its traditional elements and natural materials.

The careful use of natural materials like traditional cement flooring, built-in furniture, wood finishes and the immediate connection with the garden, refer to traditional Greek architecture. It feels like a cozy Greek holiday home, not a city apartment. All windows look to the protected garden, so you are sheltered from the summer heat and the noise of the streets. It is ideal for a couple of people and one more can sleep on the long couch, which has an orthopedic sleeping mattress. If you are a bigger group of 4-5 people, the studio apartment next to this one can be rented together, so you will be able to gather in the garden, although you have the privacy of 2 apartments!

It is a small house, so the Laundry room is communal for every floor of the building. At a small cost, we can provide you with washing-machine option.

This is not a classic apartment… It is a garden apartment in the heart of the city… The garden has high stone walls but we have outdoor conditions, some insects and birds might fly in the air and the cats of the neighborhood walk by! We even have a bowl of water for the cats, in the hot months of the summer… They are cute,  non aggressive and will not come close to you but if you don’t like the presence of cats, this is not the right spot for you…

Traditional Garden Apartment

Traditional-styled space in an old building, but renovated keeping the original identity with eco-materials and built-in furniture. Opens to a private back-garden, so you live indoors & outdoors, in a city where days are usually sunny and warm. The garden is on the back of building, so there is complete privacy from the street and quietness, despite the central location. Double doors separate the living room from the bedroom, so it works like a one space but also as 2 separate rooms.

The floor and built furniture are built in the old traditional construction method, with pressed volcanic mix, a material used from ancient times. Originally the mix consisted of lava from Santorini, river sand, lime and water. The mixing of these earthy materials, all found in nature, creates a surface that although waterproof, allows the building to breathe.

The garden space is 100% private for your use. The plants are automatically watered so all you have to do is sit and enjoy… You can also have an outdoor shower if you feel hot in the summer, if you have a bathing-suit.
We are in an urban area, so if you want to have a late-night chat & drinks while our neighbors sleep, there are many open-air bars open till late at 2 minutes walk. This way you can speak freely and they can sleep freely, too!
