Perks for the Parents

In the Sepolia area of Athens, under 2km from the city center, this bright and beautiful 2-bedroom apartment has plenty of space for the kids, plus an art collection and kids playroom. With a lovely modern kitchen and kids' bedroom, and thoughtful interior design touches, the apartment is colorful and spacious. It creates a relaxed feel for kids, where they can play, jump and craft in an environment that is casual and fun. It takes 10 minutes by taxi to reach the main tourist attractions, and an 8-minute walk takes you to the closest metro station.

Style Notes

Calm and soothing. This lovely apartment is flooded with light and sunshine and has high ceilings and views of the mountains. Fresh and white, it has both brand new appliances and art in the walls. The kids bedroom is colourful, with a lot of green pillows, and the living room is arranged so kids can play and draw on the coffee table in front of the sofa. The kitchen is easily cleaned and has enough space to prepare the meals, with a bench at the kitchen table to host little friends. We love the simple natural colors throughout, the easy open plan space and the thoughtful and fun kids bedroom.

Sepolia, Athens

Local pleasures and city treasures

A couple of kilometers north of the busy city center, Sepolia is a quiet neighborhood where you can experience life as a local family in the city. Take the metro into the city in 10 minutes to browse archaeological finds and stellar museums, or drive to the beach for a day of sun, sand and sea. It’s a take on Athens without the tourist crush.

Booking was easy, they do take the full amount rather than a deposit so you naturally have a little worry if it falls through, though not a big concern we paid in full and it went well. The host met us on the day, very friendly and helpful, the apartment was perfect for us we had a 2 year old and 5 month old baby. One bedroom with a large double bed and another bedroom with a single bed and cot for the baby, the host had gone a got a bed guard for our boy which was nice. Very basic apartment which again was perfect, it had plenty of space and everything you could need there was a box of toys and some bean bags, the space gave our boy the room to play, run around and be himself. The local area had some nice restaurants only a few minutes walk away, a local supermarket the same just a few minutes. 10 minutes in a taxi will take you to the fun ground, water park and the centre of Athens. Your best to call the taxi to come pick you up, there was some local info at the apartment with a taxi number. The only negative, were the stairs to the apartment, as there wasn't lift. 2 kids and the luggage made this a bit inconvenient but for us not an issue. We enjoyed the entire stay and the apartment was beautiful in a nice area.
