Traveling as a family to Greece? Athens has a growing number of furnished short term vacation rental apartments within an easy walk of the historic center that provide a comfortable alternative to booking multiple hotel rooms.
Self-catering apartments offer extra space, and allow parents to rest easy knowing the kids are safely tucked away in a bedroom just off the living room as opposed to in another hotel room down the hall. A full kitchen offers money saving opportunities since you’re not limited to eating three meals a day outside and laundry facilities mean you can pack lighter, saving on airline baggage fees.

Most important though, having your own home away from home in Athens means space to gather around the map of Athens with family as you plan your day’s activities and a private place to put up your feet, sit back and enjoy a night cap overlooking the Acropolis or Mount Lykavittos without feeling cramped.
Greek Vacation Rentals’ homes in downtown Athens range from cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bath duplex pied-a-terre to an historic Landmark status home to a spacious 4 bedroom, 4 bath (all en suite) contemporary Acropolis view apartment, with several other configurations in between. These homes are all perfect for groups of 4 – 12 guests.
