Want to stay in the heart of the action? Our unique Athens Heritage House is just for you.
Featuring a cool and calming historic center 2-bedroom apartment with a semi-detached garden suite, this property sleeps up to 8 and is ideal for families with small children, or groups of friends who want to be close to it all.


When it comes to sightseeing, this is as central as it gets. With the city’s famous archaeological park just a block away – home to the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, and Keramikos Cemetery – you couldn’t be better placed.

The charming pedestrian streets are a walker's delight. With history all around, you can trace the footsteps of ancient scholars and explore thousands of years of culture without needing a car.

To satisfy more modern tastes, you’re close to the live music venues of bohemian Psirri and Gazi, surrounding the old Athens gasworks, where former warehouses are now home to hipster bars, nightclubs, and galleries.

There are plenty of restaurants, tavernas, bakeries, and tourist shops around. Yet the Athens Heritage House, in the middle of it all, feels secluded and just a bit magical. As you sip your morning coffee or evening’s ouzo in the garden, you’ll forget you’re in the dead center of Athens.


Two bedrooms are located in the main house; one with a Queen bed and the second with two twins, making the Heritage House ideal for families traveling with children. If only a couple is staying, the doors between the two bedrooms can be opened to create a spacious suite.

There is a powder room (WC/half bath, no shower) adjacent to the bedrooms. The full-sized bathroom, just off the living room, features a glass enclosed walk-in shower and separate, characterful antique clawfoot tub – imagine unwinding here in the bubbles with organic Greek bath products and a glass of local wine after a busy day of sightseeing.
A doorway from the living area leads to a glass covered shady patio for access to our Garden Studio. This semi detached studio - the third bedroom, has a cozy Queen bed and full bath with shower. The perfect hideaway for parents of teens, sandwich generation couples traveling with mom and dad and the kids.


As with our other Greek Vacation Rentals, you can count on the convenience of an eat-in kitchen with modern appliances and seating for 6, plus that rare Athens find - a full-sized washing machine and dryer.

The vibe here is charming and traditional, with polished wood and tile floors, high ceilings, and pops of color in the jewel-tone linens. Throw open the door and welcome the cool breeze from your private garden patio (a blessing during a hot Greek summer).

If you need help planning your time in Athens, inquire about our expert concierge services, private catering, or city tour guide.

For those with a hunger for authentic Greek food, ask us about booking a Fabulous Foodie Tour in nearby Athens Central Market, featuring plenty of tasty treats and finishing at a secret local lunch spot!

You really can’t get much closer to the Acropolis than this. So if your family or group craves convenience, comfort, and close proximity to the city’s best sites, look no further than our Athens Heritage House.

This is a wonderful apartment

Date of Stay:

This is a wonderful apartment, conveniently located. The apartment has a lovely covered courtyard and a lot of private space. We were a group of 6, two couples and two children, and the apartment fit us perfectly. Carole and her local representative, Nadea, were extremely accessable and created a warm feeling of hospitality. I highly recommend Carole and Basil's place.

Lovely Getaway!

Date of Stay:

Clean, quiet and spacious. But location, location, location!!! A block from the pedestrian walkway to the Acropolis (15 mins) or the Plaka (5 mins) and this was a perfect fit for 3 couples traveling and needing a few days in Athens. Thanks, Carole and Basil; we hope to return soon!

Excellent Location with all the amenities!!

Date of Stay:

This apartment is located within minutes of the major sites of Athens. It is minutes away from restaurants and cafes. No need to worry about getting a taxi to take you, especially if you're a large group. One of the places no one has mentioned in any of the reviews is that this apartment is a 10 minute walk from the #1 rated movie theater in the world. Thissio Theater. We found this accidentally as my daughters wanted to see Mama Mia! Here we go again! in Greece. The theater is an open air theater with views of the Parthenon lit up in the evening. It was beautiful. The apartment is clean and comes fully equipped with everything you need. The driver was amazing as he gave us many recommendations and even stopped to help us get a phone. Although, I did not meet Carole, she is very responsive, helpful and detail oriented. I have already recommended this place to my friends. I would definitely stay here again .

Really nice property in the perfect location.

Date of Stay:

This property provided enough elbow room and privacy for me and my adult son. It is nicely appointed and in the perfect location for the Acropolis, shopping and museum going. Carole always goes the extra mile in offering transfers to and from the airport or the ferry terminal, and a selection of tours around Greece.

What a great place

Date of Stay:

What a great place..clean and fantastic situation to all the main sites in Athens. Carole and Basil were great hosts..very helpful with organising transport from the airport...and helpfjul tips and hjnts made our stay great...would definitely recommend this place

The apartment is spacious and well appointed.

Date of Stay:

The apartment is spacious and well appointed. Carol had a basket of delicious goodies on the kitchen table upon arrival. Very nice having three separate toilets for the six adults in our party. Beds were comfortable. A/C works well. Location is very convenient to groceries, bakeries and restaurants. Several major sights are within walking distance, but know that all of them are uphill - both ways :). The people who checked us in were very friendly and extremely helpful resolving some questions and helping with a medical situation. Cannot say enough good things.

Carole and Basil are amazing hosts

Date of Stay:

Carole and Basil are amazing hosts. I have never received so much advance information, planning tips, and details. The apartment is in a terrific location. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and there are several restaurants and markets nearby. The apartment is large, very clean, and beautiful. There was a lovely basket of treats waiting for us, and Nadia met us and gave us a wonderful tour even though our flight was delayed and we arrived later in the evening. They helped us arrange some excellent day trips (one day cruise and a driver to visit a beach/temple of Poseidon), and were always available whenever we had questions. It was an amazing trip and I will be looking to stay in one of Carole & Basil's properties in the future!

Nice apartment, large and clean and well appointed

Date of Stay:

Nice apartment, large and clean and well appointed. There are two bedrooms plus a small garden suite accessed through the courtyard. Open main room with high ceilings. I didn't spend much time in the unit, though, because it is in great location. Although it's on a quiet residential street, there are tons of cafes and restaurants within a few blocks. It's an easy walk to the Acropolis, Agora, and the other archaeological sites, as well as the Monastiraki and central market areas. Carole and Basil run a full-service operation and can arrange tours and day trips. I did a food tour which was a good introduction to the city and also visited the Temple of Poseidon in Sounio. They and the other guides and drivers can provide lots of restaurant and other recommendations. I had a great time and hope to be back soon.

Our stay at Carole & Basil's place was great from start to finish.

Date of Stay:

Our stay at Carole & Basil's place was great from start to finish. Prior and during the trip, communication with Carole was a breeze and she offered great tips and suggestions. The house comfortably accommodated our family group of 7 (with 2 kids sleeping on the trundle bed in the common space). The house was as pictured. But best of all was the LOCATION! Less than a mile to almost everything we wanted to see and do and despite the heat we walked a lot. The neighborhood is great and not touristy. Nearby restaurants are delicious. And just go up a few streets and you can see the Acropolis. We were very happy to have stayed there and recommend it highly.

“Amazing location with great comfort”

Date of Stay:

Athens Heritage House is at a great location, just a small walk from the acropolis , its a great way to get a feel of Athens. Carole was an amazing host - with all amenities provided for. I would recommend this place highly to anybody visiting Athens.

“L'appartement idéal pour découvrir Athènes”

Date of Stay:

The perfect appartment for your Athens' discovery. Well equiped, nice and welcoming place, with all you need. It is perfectly situated to walk to acropolis and all the principal places of historic Athens. Enough room for the familiy. Very interesting optional guided tours. I warmly recommed this place.

This was a wonderful home and stay!

Date of Stay:

This was a wonderful home and stay! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. I will be sure to recommend it to all my friends here in Germany.

Great apartment in a great location.

Date of Stay:

Great apartment in a great location. Fantastic communication and support from our guests. Not so convenient if you are 7 or more since one would have to sleep in the living room. One skweaky bathroom door in the back-bedroom. Would certainly come back!

Perfect place to stay in Athens!

Date of Stay:

The house was beautiful and our hosts were very helpful. The home close to the sites you are going to want to see. It is air-conditioned and has everything you need to make you feel at home. I wish we would have had a couple of extra days to stay!

Great location, apartment, and people

Date of Stay:

The apartment is conveniently located, walking distance to most of the important sites to visit, wonderful restaurants, and groceries. The space comfortably accommodated our group of seven. The apartment is well equipped and clean. The people in Athens will work to help you with any problems and make you feel like a welcome guest. It was everything we hoped. We would gladly stay here again if we return to Athens.

Reviewed on Jul 2016We had a wonderful, kind of spur of the moment, trip in Athens.

Date of Stay:

We had a wonderful, kind of spur of the moment, trip in Athens. Carole was most helpful and the apartment could not have been in a more convenient location for sightseeing. I would highly recommend taking advantage of this wonderful apartment and all of the things Carole has to offer (boat trip to islands, etc). Our trip was extended because of circumstances in Turkey, but Nick whisked us to another airbnb for a night which Nadia arranged. Lifesavers!! Thanks for making the trip so wonderful.

5 stars

Date of Stay:

The listing was just as described, and as traveling in need of three separate bedrooms, this was just a perfect place to stay. The apartment feels like it belongs in Athens and lends itself to a more "natural" feel of the entire visit. When returning to the apartment, you feel like you're actually living in Athens rather than being a tourist. The Greek people in the neighborhood echo this feeling, making you feel as if you are "one of us", and the entire experience was memorable in this way. To that end, the neighborhood of the apartment is not as touristy as Plaka, so feels more down to earth, but it is still so close to the historical buildings, restaurants, and shopping that you can still easily accomplish all of the "tourist" related goals you're sure to have when visiting such a magical place. Lastly, Carole does an incredible job facilitating all kinds of fun excursions and her team is absolutely top-notch. Nadia, Nikos, and Dimitri were all a pleasure to spend time with, and none of the excursions were overly priced. Carole has basically taken all of the stress out of having an authentic and action packed vacation in an incredible place. I would certainly book again with her again. Five star experience!

Made more memorable by staying in Carole and Basil's lovely apartment

Date of Stay:

When we arrived in Athens, we were greeted by Nick who was most helpful during our stay. Upon entering the apartment, we noticed the cleanliness and the convenience to places of interest. Our hostess was most informative and helpful in getting us settled in. There was a bowl of goodies awaiting us which was much appreciated. We ate at some amazing restaurants and enjoyed sightseeing around Athens, especially the Acropolis and the museum. It was so nice that we could all be together. We spent the majority of our trip on Crete where family lives. Athens was at the end of our time in Greece and was made more memorable by staying in Carole and Basil's lovely apartment.

Thanks for making the trip so wonderful.

Beautiful home below the acropolis

Date of Stay:

Hallo Carol & Basil We spent 4 great days in Athens in your beautiful home below the acropolis. The house is perfectly located in the heart of athens and the most sights are just a few minutes away. Every thing worked an the house was very clean. Many thanks for the plate with greek goodies. Martin

“Location, location, location”

Date of Stay:

Upon our arrival we were met by the very friendly and helpful neighbours who gave us a brief tour of the apartment and its fixtures. A well appointed, very clean apartment that was within walking distance to the Acropolas, the Plaka and the down town cafe and restaurant precint.

We enjoyed our stay at Carole and Basil's apartment very much

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed our stay at Carole and Basil's apartment very much. It is charming, very spacious, and perfectly located - within a ten-minute walk to the Acropolis and the Agora. Carole was very helpful and responsive in arranging a taxi ride for us from the airport - and when we arrived at the apartment, there was a basket of wine, bread, and other treats waiting for us, which was a very nice surprise. After we made our reservation, we were provided a detailed guidebook which included some very helpful tips and recommendations - we used the guide to find a good restaurant, a grocery store, and a bakery not far from the apartment. After a long day of sightseeing, it was nice to come back to a place that was comfortable and felt like a home away from home.

5 stars

Date of Stay:

We had a lovely time in Athens to start off our vacation in Greece. We were welcomed by Nadia who gave uw some great locale adresses of the beaten path. We didn't have much time in advance regarding transportation from the airport and to the port, luckily Carole suggested reservations with Nick which made it easier for is! The house/apartment was fully equiped and clean! The patio was lovely as a retreat! The location is perfect and nearby everything, but still in a quiet street. We would't recomend staying with 8people, but it is perfect for 6people!!!

Carole was a superb host.

Date of Stay:

Carole was a superb host. Since she was not in Athens when we were there, her assistant Nadia met me at the apartment, where a large basket with olives, bread, wine and other goodies also greeted us. Nadia showed me around the apartment and then, using a map, showed me around the neighborhood—the supermarket, wonderful bakery, etc.—and the rest of Athens. (I woud suggest picking up a more detailed free map when you arrive at the airport, which will help you pinpoint locations a bit more precisely.) Afterwards, Nadia patiently answered all my questions about where to go. I had to phone Nadia with a couple of followup questions, and each time she answered the phone and again patiently helped me. I loved the neighborhood, which was so close to the Agora and in easy walking distance to everything. Since I was there at high tourist season, I was especially grateful to be staying in a neighborhood away from all that, one that felt residential and where I could go to the produce market and the bakery around the corner and to a funky little cafe filled with old Greek men drinking coffee just a block away. (Turn right out of the apartment and then turn left for one block and continue across the street to the cafe on the far left corner.) I used Carol's drivers to and from the airport. I didn't compare prices, and though the cost was a bit of a stretch for me, it was worth it for peace of mind. Because we were 5 and my family arrived a day after me, we ended up using 5 drivers at various times. They were all charming and wonderful! As far as any drawbacks, I was there in August and the mosquitoes in the garden were relentless. There are coils provided but still, we stayed inside and used mosquito spray (which I bought at a lovely pharmacy around the corner) just to run across the patio to the third bedroom. The apartment is beautifully equipped bathroom, laundry, and kitchen-wise with what seem like new appliances, as well as ample dishes, electric hot water kettle, etc. The main living area has plenty of space where we could all sit around. There isn't much natural light, which is a plus in August when the outdoor heat and sun are pretty intense. Finally, Carol's notes about where to go were so helpful in narrowing down all the choices. We especially enjoyed the spice market area and going to the little cheese pie place on Voulis St.

Fantastic. Cute spacious set up with courtyard and extra studio for privacy

Date of Stay:

We enjoyed staying near the Acropolis, eating in local restaurants, and sightseeing. The apartment was spacious and clean. Decorated very nicely. In quaint neighborhood. It is near tourist areas but is quiet. Near nice bakery and small grocer. Great to eat outside at night look at Acropolis/

Charming accommodations, great location

Date of Stay:

Everything about booking this location was great. A true urban Athenian experience without making any compromises. Greek Vacation Rentals managed all the transfers and outlined a perfect holiday filled with historic sites and fun local activities. Couldn't have been more fun or less stressful.
