Athens, Attica
Quiet 53 m² ground floor apartment very close to Athens center (1.5 km from Syntagma square). It was built in the mid 50's and fully renovated in 2017. Our top priority was to restore and maintain as many of its original characteristics and furniture as possible. It is situated 100m from Caravel Hotel and 500m from Athens Hilton Hotel, in a quiet, car noise free neighborhood, less than a minute's walk from the bus stop and 6 minutes’ walk from Evangelismos Metro station (airport line).

The entire apartment is at your exclusive disposal. It is 53 m² and consists of a bedroom with a large double bed and a baby cot, a living / dining room with a sofa that converts into a large double bed (1.40 x 2.00), a hallway with a single bed, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The apartment is air conditioned with brand new quiet AC units...

About the neighbourhood
This enchanting neighborhood is located in the center of Athens, just a few minutes away from Syntagma Square. With the bustle of cars absent, you will only hear the voices of children playing in the adjacent park. Only a few meters away, the most commercial street of Pagrati begins, where you can find every kind of café, restaurant and shop! This apartment was built in the mid 50’s as part of an “Urban Refugee Housing Project”, to house Greek refugees who came from Smyrna and other areas in Asia Minor in 1922. In an area previously occupied by Army barracks, six buildings were built, comprising 54 apartments to house an equal number of families that moved in in 1957.
