In an unassuming street directly just under the Acropolis, in the atmospheric old quarter of Plaka, next to the brand new Acropolis museum, Aeolis is located in one of the city’s most exclusive areas.
Currently run as a hostel it could be transformed into an exclusive, luxury boutique hotel for city center breaks, making it an ideal investment prospect. Another alternative is for Aeolis to become a unique family home, where you and your family and friends would enjoy spending time together in the spacious courtyard. A premium outdoor space within the city.
Aeolis is a wonderful art-deco mansion, in one of Athens oldest and finest neighbourhoods.
The property exterior is classed as “protected”. The interiors consist of ground floor, three floors, plus a basement. There are currently nine bedrooms and ten bathrooms. The bedrooms can be increased to fourteen. A fantastic wood and marble art-deco staircase makes a wonderful feature in the reception area, connecting the floors in style.
The immediate area that surrounds Aeolis presents a palpable sense of history. Visitors can follow the ancient paths winding around the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, Byzantine churches, neoclassical mansions, small eclectic museums and the new world-class Acropolis Museum – all of which are within a seven minute walk. Traditional Greek tavernas line the cobbled streets, as do the traditional Greek Blues Houses (rembetika).
Venturing a few minutes further by foot, takes you to the shopping district of Ermou, hunt for antiques at Monastiraki’s flea market, follow the footsteps of Socrates at the Ancient Marketplace, sipping coffee in Kolonaki, or in the vibrant party areas of Gazi or Psyrri.
All essential amenities are accessible including direct transport links to the airport (30 minutes away by Metro or bus), easy access to the beach at Glyfada (via tram or Metro) and train links to the South cost port of Piraeus.
