Breezy new Patisia, Athens Penthouse

Bedrooms 2
Space 775 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

This brand new, 72 meter apartment has 2 balconies and a covered terrace.

Wheelchair-accessible, comfortable, 72 square meter, brand new modern penthouse, this modern, elevator-equipped penthouse is on the 8th floor of the tallest building around, located 6 Metro stops from Monastiraki, the meeting place for Athens, and about 50 meters from the Agios Eleftherios Metro Station. The building was built around 2009 and this apartment was finished in 2016. It will be your home away from home. Sunrise will greet you on the spacious covered veranda with 180 degree views to the northeast and eastern mountains as well as being eye-level to the illuminated Acropolis and Parthenon. There are also 2 west-facing balconies. Linger on the covered terrace over your coffee and breakfast, which you can prepare in the modern kitchen.

In the afternoon, the balconies on the west side of the apartment, leading from the single bedroom and kitchen, bid adieu to the sun.

Wifi, cable, and blue-ray complement your information resources: solar powers the water: the 3 air conditioners heat during the chilly Athens winters and cool those hot summer days. The 3 air conditioners are situated 1 1 in each bedroom and in the great room and heat or cool very well.

Somewhere in the neighborhood, is the "Laiki", or Farmers' Market. In June and July of 2016, it was right in front of the house, so parking in your assigned space will be difficult on Mondays during that time period. It moves every 6 weeks or so to another venue nearby.

Between the Metro and the apartment are: Kosmikon (award-winning "Best of Athens" pastry shop); cafes; 2 butcher shops (ask for Lampros at "Xasapikon"); convenience stores (ask for Vasiliki at "H Gonia" on the corner of Ampatielou Street), pharmacies; Ioanna's gift and computer services shop and many others. About 300 meters away on Patision Avenue is Vasilopoulos, a two-floor supermarket with all you expect from a supermarket Also nearby is "Fourno", an excellent bread bakery.

Please smoke only on the balconies or terrace.

About Leon Karahalis

Greek-American polyglot by birth, Miamian by choice, this apartment is my dream come true. It is a great pied-a-terre for European explorers, and I fully intend to travel throughout Europe in my nearing retirement. I bought it to help the local economy and my friends who manage and clean it.

Leon Karahalis purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Leon Karahalis chose Ano Patisia

Peaceful ,quiet and proximity to friends as well as all of the offerings a large city offers make this location ideal for me.

What makes this apartment unique

Museums, churches, arts and culture abound in Athens, all within a 30 minute metro ride. Escaping to the islands is easy and airfares from Athens to other parts of Europe are quite reasonable.

Wonderfull, Simply love it

  • 5 of 5

Very private, covering the whole floor, easy to use lift, nicely decorated as if it was your own apartment. Comfortable queen bed, air conditioned. All apartment and utensils clean and modern. Every Tuesday there is a Farmers street market 3min walk with the freshest veg & fish you will ever find, Kitchen is fully equipped.

Plenty of coffee implements at least 3, percolator , espresso , xxx

but no Greek Briki !! whoever stole it bring it back. I had to make mine in a 3 litre pot.

As it's not easy to park in Athens the secure car park come in very handy. Internet was fast.

Panos was very obliging when I locked my self out. Keys were found ... in my back pocket.

Thanks Leon, Panos & George. Hope to visit you again soon.

Little Oasis in the heart of busy Athens

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your apartment. We heard about it while speaking with a Canadian family in ancient Delphi. Thank you to them for their recommendation, and thank you to you for a wonderful apartment in the middle of Athens. We were so pleased with how close the subway and public transport are. And what a surprise to find the Monday local farmer's market just around the corner, where one can find anything and everything for sale.

The apartment is spacious, very clean, quiet and well equipped for cooking our meals.

Because of the easy access to the subway, it's a wonderful location to explore the famous sites of Athens and then come "home" to relax.

Hidden Gem in Athens

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a traditional Greek neighborhood over Easter and it was a great experience. The two bedroom, 3 balcony apartment was suitable to sleep 2 parents and three kids (17, 15 & 10). Two of the balconies are small and best for viewing the sunset while the third is very expansive for morning coffee or taking meals. The apartment had everything we needed to cook healthy meals for breakfast and dinner (we ate out for lunch while exploring). Of the many VRBO apartments we have stayed in this was the best equipped kitchen with high end fixtures (curtains, patio doors, windows, bathroom shower, TV and DVD player). It included a washing machine and had drying racks to dry the clothes on the balcony. The apartment had air conditioning but we did not have to use it as the 8th floor had a cool breeze at night. We were situated just 50m from the metro line which takes you right into the heart of the tourist area. The apartment was 5 to 10 mins walk away from an A&B supermarket and if that is too far for you the butcher, three bakeries, and the corner store are all within 50m. Fast food restaurants are also within walking distance including a pizzeria to cater to kids. Leon the owner was very responsive as was Panos the property manager to any questions that we had. We would stay here again!

A wonderful apartment with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Leon the property owner and Panos is his property manager we super. Both treated us like old friends. Panos was always available for suggestions via Facebook Messenger (my preference methods of communication) with restaurant suggestions, closes Votifone shop etc. My suggestion is to Use Uber once you get to the apartment. It's the easiest method other than the Metro just down the street from the apartment. To get to the apartment be sure you write down the area along with the street address. Written in the Greek alphabet is better as few taxi drivers from the airport speak English. All Uber drivers speak English, a bonus. The apartment is in a newly renovated building and the apartment is supper clean and modern. The WiFi was strong for streaming Netflix. Supper Market, bakery, and small markets are all within 1 to 4 blocks. We loved staying at the apartment.

Amazing Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Beautiful views from the balconies, easily accessible, the washing machine is great, full kitchen set is a plus and of. course, the owner couldn't be more welcoming with a bottle of wine. Panos, his intermediate, was very kind and helpful to professionally guide us around the penthouse. The description of the property was very accurate, Wi-Fi was high-speed, spacious place enough for 5, public transport right off the corner, many bakery stores nearby, etc. The only things that may be missing to improve the stat will be a hair dryer and iron. Other than those missing, the stay was pleasant with reasonable pricing and I would definitely book it again on my next visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and for being such a great guest! Panos said that he showed you where the iron was, in the smaller bedroom along with the ironing board, but it was probably a quick tour so you could get on with your enjoyment of the penthouse apartment and Athens. There is no hair dryer, but we may get one as we never thought of it. I'm bald ...

Car: not necessary

This is a well-established residential neighborhood with easy access to all transportation and necessities. All kinds of shops abound in the area and the metro station is just steps away. Our station is 6 stops from Monastiraki and a direct line to Piraeus for ferry connections to the islands.

It is also far from the noise and congestion of the more tourist-oriented areas yet convenient to them as well. The apartment is very quiet, rising above the street in the highest building around, with nothing obscuring your distant view of the Acropolis.
