Few vistas can rival the sight of the majestic Acropolis towering over Athens, and there’s really no beating waking up to glance out of the window and witnessing it in all its splendour. A stay at this cosy studio apartment will afford you just that – thanks to the huge private terrace, you’ll be able to enjoy the iconic view any time you like. While space is certainly compact here, the place exudes warmth and comfort thanks to the modern decor and streams of natural light flooding in through the large windows. The comfortable bed invites you for nights of sweet dreams, while the well-equipped kitchen is perfect for rustling up quick and easy snacks and late-night suppers which can be savoured out on the terrace. Ideal as a base for a romantic getaway or for a solo traveller, this pad’s location could hardly be any more convenient – outside your front door, you’ll find yourself just moments away from the entrance to the Acropolis Museum, as well as the Metro station. Step outside and take your pick, whichever direction you choose, there’ll be wonders awaiting.
