Inner Garden Apartment near Acropolis

Two buildings, diagonally looking one another, in a cozy neighborhood in Athens. Both built in 1936. One of them Art Deco, the other Bauhaus. The Bauhaus one had one floor addition in 1947. The Art Deco had one floor addition in 1957. Both renovated in 2016; under two new, different, owners.

New life was brought to both, but they are still Art Deco and Bauhaus.

ARTDECO MEETS BAUHAUS

The Art Deco one is Tales in Tiles’ main building. The entrance hall (ground floor) together with the 1st floor apartment (Tales in Tiles 1) were built in 1936 and have all the characteristics of the Art Deco architectural movement of that period: Cement tile floors, high ceilings, wooden windows and elaborated railings.
The apartment on the 2nd floor (Tales in Tiles 2), an addition of 1957, has remarkably interesting terrazzo floors, marble sinks and a private roof top terrace overlooking the city.
An elegant wooden staircase connects the ground floor to the 1st and the 2nd floors of the building.
My husband Sotiris and myself have put extreme care in its renovation and the preservation, elaboration even, of these original elements.

Of the three levels Bauhaus building, Tales in Tiles operates its ground floor apartment, with its beautiful inner garden (Tales in Tiles 3). The other two floors are for the owners’ use. Just like ourselves, the owners of this building put a lot of love and attention to its renovation, sticking to the building’s original Bauhaus elements, mainly on the outside.

Two buildings, diagonally looking one another, were brought together under the Tales in Tiles family. Two families met for this purpose. Sharing the same love for old and new, but mostly, the same values for life. Cause there is people behind everything.

About the host

Who we are

Stavroula

“Having spent 15 years in Finance, I am now enjoying being a mother of two, a housewife and an airbnb host. Hosting for me can be as an exciting experience as travelling. It is all about getting together, even for just a little while, with people from different places but same values.”

Climb up the stairs in front of the building. On the main street, turn right and walk round Filopappou hill. In 12-15’ walk you will find yourself at the foot of Acropolis hill. Do walk up to see Acropolis (open from 8:00 till 20:00 every day). Do go either very early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid the heat and crowds.

They said about us

This place was so comfortable. It was very clean, nicely decorated, lots of light and space. The garden was great with the fruit trees. We made pomegranate juice most mornings using pomegranates from the tree in the garden (and the food processor provided in the excellent, well-stocked kitchen). Nice area for walks. It really has everything you could want. Awesome place for a short or long stay.

Stavroula and Rosina have been the best hosts I have ever had. There was so much love for detail in everything (facemasks, homemade marmelade). The apartment itself is just stunning: Classy, huge and with all the amenities one could wish for. If ever again in Athens, then only at this place. Thank you
