I am available to give you information or help you in any way. My first priority is to be always available for my guests through mail, text or call.
Why Sophie's House chose Thissio
Thiseio or Thissio is the name of a traditional neighbourhood in downtown Athens, Greece, northwest of the Acropolis, 1.5 km southwest of downtown. Thissio is surrounded by hills, heights and historical sites which are within a walking distance. It is a fun neighborhood and the pedestrianization of Apostolou Pavlou and Dionysiou Areopagitou, the roads that border the area of the Acropolis, more cafes have opened and it is almost an extension of Monastiraki, beginning where Adrianou Street ends by the Thission Train Station. If you walk up Apostolou Pavlou with the Acropolis on your left, the neighborhood of Thission is on your right beyond the cafes with their view of the Acropolis. The Ancient Agora of Athens, Stoa of Attalos, Temple of Hephaestus can be entered from Thissio, others: the National Observatory of Athens, Philoppappos Monument, Pnyx, which is considered the birthplace of Democracy and the Mount Lyccabetous can be easily reached or viewed from Thissio. The panoramic views of them and their natural surroundings from the Aeropagus height are spectacular, especially by night.

Au coeur de Thissio
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l’accueil chaleureux de Sophie qui a toujours été disponible pour répondre à nos questions et même pour commander un taxi pour nous le dernier jour. Le soir de notre arrivée, des spécialités familiales nous attendaient sur la table et le lendemain matin le père de Sophie nous a apporté de superbes tartelettes aux fruits de la pâtisserie voisine. L’appartement est très propre et bien équipé. La literie est parfaite. La maison est très proche à pieds des rues piétonnes conduisant à l’Acropole; la proximité de deux stations de métro facilite beaucoup aussi les déplacements vers d’autres quartiers. Nos journées étaient très occupées par les visites mais chaque matin et chaque soir nous avons apprécié de pouvoir manger dehors dans la petite cour à la fois au calme et au cœur de la ville. Merci Sophie et bonne chance !
Evelyne and her sister are very polite and always with a smile in their faces. They give me some gifts the last day. They left the apartment clean. I am really happen that I met you. I hope to see you again even in Greece or in France. Thank you!

Thank you Sophia for this nice holidays.
Very good family and very polite. They left the house very clean. I hope see you again. Thank you!
Great location - very cosy
We spent two nights at Sophie's House, parents and two children (9 and 14). You just go to the corner and straight up the street, and you are right there at the foot of the Acropolis. Sophie is very helpful and flexible to deal with. The cosy apartment is good value for the money. We didn't even have time to enjoy the movie projector ;-)
Very good people, very quiet and polite. We had no problem. Thank you very much. See you again.
