My house is a pretty small and very warm and cozy flat on the 5th (top) floor of an Athens downtown building. Elevator until the 4th, then stairs for 1 floor up. It has 3 main rooms, the bedroom, a utility room, and a newly constructed glass-enclosed part of the balcony, which is now the living room. This room is cozy, floor-sitting-style, carpeted and filled with pillows and we wear no shoes here.
There is an extra-miniature kitchen and a bathroom with small bathtub. It has a big balcony with a high view over Athenian rooftops. Not the most romantic view of cement blocks and antennas, but it looks to the sunset, and you don't get many great views in downtown Athens anyway. It is bright and sunny.
The bedroom includes the bed & desk. The bed is a couch which opens up to be a double bed with a proper, comfortable mattress (this is the bed I sleep in). It has air-condition, and there is an extra movable heat radiator in case it's cold.
There's internet wifi and a land line.
The other room includes the clothes wardrobe, the fridge and the clothes-washing machine (since the kitchen is a kitchenette and has no room for those).
The kitchenette is very small but fully equipped.
Ideally it is comfortable for one person, or a couple who don't need much space, but it can sleep up to 4 people.
***Note*** This building is a classic old Athenian block, so even though the house may be cleaned, you can still see the wear and tear of time.
The house is on a street right off a major downtown avenue (Alexandras). As it is not on the avenue itself, you don't get all of the busy street noice. It has a number of small and one big park nearby, as well as super markets, local market, bars, cafes and many eating places.
It is very central. You can be in 15 minutes to major central hubs with bars and clubs and central markets.
There is easy and frequent public transportation with buses (bus stop right next to the house) and 2 metro stations (15 min walk).
I am an adventurous freelance webdesigner 40years old woman. I am into music, playing guitar and singing, making handmade soap & cosmetics from all-natural materials, and I've been semi professionally into dance (salsa and tango) and other types of performance. I'm also an action woman, having done lots of activity sports like paragliding, rock climbing, scuba diving etc.
But one of my greatest loves is traveling which I do quite often for long periods of time.
So my house sits all alone, waiting for someone to use it :)
I speak Greek, English, Spanish and some French.
