Perks for the Parents

This top floor apartment in a friendly Athens neighborhood, between the Acropolis and the beach, has a sunny terrace ideal for coffee, sunshine and beautiful views. In the family-oriented Nea Smirni neighborhood, close to the centre of Athens and its seafront, it has good public transport links, a park next door and the area’s vibrant square, full of restaurants, cafés and independent shops, a 10-minute walk away.

Why Kids Love it

Kids of all ages love the big terrace where they can play. The bathroom has a bathtub. The park across the street is a firm favorite: the playground is fantastic and there is a little café which sells much needed coffee to parents and ice lollies to kids. Nea Smirni is one of the most family-friendly neighborhoods in Athens. The location makes trips to the beach and the ancient ruins easy.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. This is a non-smoking residence. Parking is free on the street. The apartment is on the 7th floor with an elevator running to the 6th floor and stairs up to the apartment’s entry. The apartment is family friendly and those with young children will find everything they need (a cot, high-chair and bath support). Nea Smirni square, full of restaurants, cafés and independent shop is a 10-minute walk from the apartment. Car rental useful but not essential.

About the Location

The residence is in Nea Smirni, a vibrant, family-friendly and safe neighbourhood 4km to the south of central Athens. There is a tram stop next to the flat: it is a 15-minute ride to the Acropolis or a 20-minute ride to the beach. It is approximately 45 minutes from Athens' International Airport by car. Next to the flat you will find Nea Smirni Park, an urban oasis, equipped with a free open air gym, a playground and a café.

Accommodation Details

This top floor apartment has a fully equipped modern kitchen, cloakroom with washing machine, spacious living room with sofa bed and a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. While it only has 1 bedroom, a foldable armchair bed and sofa bed can accommodate further guests. A wooden crib can be added on request.

Style Notes

Modern and comfortable. The decor is minimal yet functional, offering everything one might need for a short or long stay. The bathroom suite is made of black granite, the kitchen is modern and the living room has a black marble floor, ideal during the hot summer months. We love the views over Athens, and the sunny terrace with its moulded armchairs.

Alexia is half French half Greek and lives in London with her husband and their two little boys. They love going to Athens to visit family and friends and show this amazing city to their children. This is why Alexia and her husband kept their pre-kids roof terrace appartment and arranged it in the most child-friendly way. Their aim is to make other families from around the world feel like home in Athens and discover this ancient city like true Athenians (with their kiddies in tow)!

Ancient ruins and modern families

Running around ancient ruins, picnicking in the shade of palm trees and buying koulouri, the sesame bread that the Athenians love so much, are just a few treats to look forward to on a trip to Athens. Don’t worry about the kids getting bored, the modern museums beside the city's archaeological sites know how to keep everyone occupied. If all else fails, a cable car trip up Mount Likavitos with an ice-cream at the top is always a good solution. Our local residences near markets and key attractions make a trip to the city with kids as easy as Greek spinach pie.
