The apartment is located at the heart of Athens on a rooftop of a historic building. In 2 min walk from the most central metro station and within 10 min distance from all the landmarks and the picturesque neighbors that you should not miss. As an architect i designed a cosy minimal apt and as a person that loves to travel, it meets all the needs of a modern traveler who wants to get the glimpse of the downtown lifestyle.

I just want to describe my experience, being in Athens a week, almost a tourist in my own country and being amazed from the creative, vivid atmosphere that flows around the city. I a guy living in Crete island and i visit Athens for vacation and pleasure.

Of course, Athens was always a capital of the world, rich in history and open-minded enough to embrace and to inspire creative minds; with a particular vibe, a vibe of life, that you could feel strolling around the city centre.
But now, more than ever, Athens downtown is booming! It is full of art, street performances, creative concepts of all day bars andrestaurants, combining the traditional and the modern, the old and the new, the values with the evolution.

So, this is my new list from downtown Athens.. until the next one! 


Greek Gourmet Shops
#Keep-some-space-in-the-luggage

“Gusto di Grecia” a delicatessen shop specialised in genuine traditional Greek products from all over the country. Careful selection of products, directly from the source, healthy options and authentic tastes, kind and helpful staff know all the details of the products, excellent value for money, a simple small gourmet store that feels familiar. Just make sure you have some space in your suitcase!

Noel, a Holiday Bar that smells Christmas all year round. Different rooms all in unique retro stylish ambience and an arcade, market-style corridor that feels like a pedestrian road with coffee tables, Noel travels you in space and time and offers a warm atmosphere that feels like home. The mixology team at its best, rotating also their creations around the tables from time to time, the place is also recommended for brunch or lunch during the day or a catch up with a friend. The music is mainly Cafe Paris and gypsy jazz in the afternoons and jazz souk and funk in the evenings. Check out also the happenings and  cultural events at the first floor at Noel Etage.

Food for Thought!
#The-travel-in-time-continues 

Still at the city centre, close to Kerameikos, but hidden at the recently revived Avdou Square, Seychelles travels you more to a village ambience and somehow you wonder how this name came from! I am sure there is a reason! Simple dishes, with local ingredients from various corners of Greece, homemade wine and friendly staff. Recommended to visit during a weekday and enjoy the weather and the atmosphere at the tables outside on the square – if you go evening time or during the weekend, you need a reservation and a bit of different sense of time!  I will definitely go back for the “pappardelle with kavourma”! 

And then, after lunch coffee at the opposite side of the square at the Blue Parrot (Ble Papagalos in Greek) and the travel in time continues! A vintage haunt, inspired from 60s with grandma delicacies and authentic tastes from the past! Definitely a place to visit, especially if you are looking for your blue parrot… do not hesitate to ask for the full legendary story of  the Cuban rare-species-of-birds collector which was the inspiration for this beautiful retro all day café.

Gifts with soul and taste
#Greece-is-rebranding-and-we-like-it!

A walk at the refreshed Andrianou street at the picturesque neighborhood of Plaka and Monastiraki was a pleasant surprise! The effort that commenced in Athens and the whole country a few years ago, from different individuals, local startups, designers, architects and young creative people is now starting to flourish! Creative souvenirs, gifts for the whole family and for friends abroad, items with aroma of Greece, useful, modern, well designed items that usually you find at museums of modern art, clothes that you really fancy to wear!
Forget Me Not shop at Andrianou 100 is a revolution at contemporary Greek design and memorabilia field, gathering carefully selected items that you just want to have or buy for your loved ones! Super friendly staff, do not miss the second space on the basement, more focused on fashion and accessories

On the same concept, now also at Athens International Airport, Anamnesia came to stay and its collection is full of colours that bring back warm summer memories from your last trip to Greece, from your childhood, from the little things in life! A shop to stop! Designed from local designers, you can find several items, from T-shirts to decorative items for the home, to accessories and small gifts for everyone, all inspired from the Greek summer and its everyday life!

Another revolution is the 6-storey Apivita Experience Store, near Kolonaki square. It all started as a pharmacy inspired by the honeybee society and the holistic approach of Hippocrates to health, beauty and well-being. Now Apivita inspires a holistic way of life with innovative stores and products in many countries of the world. Every corner and every floor of the flagship experience store in Athens is carefully designed and has a story to say. A Natural Pharmacy where you can create your own personal cosmetics, combining essential oils and aromatherapy with active ingredients such as minerals, vitamins, aloe vera etc., an Organic juice bar, the Lecture Hall, a cultural and intellectual focal point for art exhibitions and seminars,the first “green” hair salon in Athens and the Beehive Spa where you can experience the unique effects of the precious bee products

Bio Restaurants & Best Brunches in Town
#Healthy-is-the-new-Sexy

For organic and bio breakfast and meals, the Nice & Easy with Mediterranean farm-to-table signature dishes, as well as the new entry IT Restaurant a few steps away in Skoufa, offer great choices of organic meals, integrating fresh local products on gourmet dishes and great artistic ambience; while the sweet vegetarian Avocado, at Syntagma square is not just a healthy food corner, but it is more about a community and a way of life!   At the same tine, the pedestrian Aiolou street is thriving, and it offers great solutions of a nice brunch or a shopping break.

Hidden corners from the past
#Life is Art

Last but not least, a couple of old favourites that i always try to find the time to visit, the 48 Urban Garden, a food-truck restaurant and bar, inspired from a contemporary airstream that was redesigned as a fully equipped food truck. Various levels with wooden platforms, benches and picnic tables, great food, signature long drinks infused with local herbs and spirits and one of the best Sunday brunch in town! It is located on the ground floor of Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Centre, so depending on the time of the day you can pop up on artistic events or exhibitions.

And of course the Six Dogs: a forgotten back-yard full of garbage transformed to a hidden paradise. An all day/night cultural entertainment centre at the heart of Monastiraki, organically combines a Gig Space, a Project Space, a Bar, a Foyer and a Garden - the diversity of the people visiting the place and the events hosted there represent exactly the diversity of the city of Athens. Stop for a homemade refreshment and a bit during the day or pass by for a cool drink later on!

The location is a 2 minute walk from Omonia Square, the closest metro station, and a 15 minute walk to Monastiraki, the main tourist area. The surrounding area has a number of cafes and shops, although there are problems with homelessness, like many parts of Athens. The host Vagelis was helpful in providing directions and instructions, and responded quickly to any questions that we had. The apartment was modern and fashionable, with a spacious rooftop terrace and nice deck chairs. It was equipped with all the basic amenities, including hair dryer, washing machine etc. It also had a very good speaker system. The layout of the apartment may cause issues, however, if multiple people are staying as there are no doors to the bathroom. There was also a large cage in the bedroom which was a bit unusual. Overall, we had a pleasant time staying in the apartment and I would like to thank Vagelis for being an excellent host.

Facile à trouver, endroit calme, assez centrale, les différents monuments historiques sont à 15- 20min de marche. L'appartement était très propre, très bonne communication avec Vagelis ! Je recommande ! Il ne manque que des volets pour pouvoir bien dormir dans le noir mais le reste est top
