Plaka

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 4 baths
Glimpse the sun’s first rays on the Parthenon from this superb home in Athens’ historic Plaka neighborhood. Perched to the north of the Acropolis, the 700-square-meter residence offers a unique contemporary sanctuary in one of Europe’s oldest settlements, with spa-style amenities and spacious living areas furnished in a mid-century modern style. Explore Plaka’s vibrant nightlife on foot or drive minutes to the city’s finest museums and archeological sites.
The villa’s main living area features an open-concept layout with glass walls leading out to the central terrace. Luminous white walls glow with abundant daylight and gorgeous evening tones, accentuating the sparkling blue pool and lush green ivy climbing the exterior wall. The sleek modern kitchen is fully equipped with chef-grade appliances, serving a breakfast bar and table for 8.
The living room offers a cozier ambiance, with a sectional sofa and tufted armchairs nestled amid beautiful artwork and a wood-burning fireplace. Downstairs, the library/media room features a projector and pull-down screen for late-night movies. The sauna and Hammam will warm you up before a soothing morning plunge.
The hillside Plaka neighborhood is a favorite among native Athenians and global travelers alike, with a unique, village-like character. Stone-paved streets are lined with boutique stores, family-run tavernas and cafes, and family-friendly destinations including the Hellenic Children’s Museum and the Museum of Greek Folk Musical Instruments. Explore the ancient Roman Agora, behold the splendors of Byzantine temples, and wander through the extraordinary Anafiotika settlement nearby.
