-- Other things to note --
Before checking-out please leave the place clean and tidy - as you would like to find it :-)
The lady in charge of the space will do a quick check, will give the final cleaning touch, and will prepare the space for the next visitor (will change bed linen, towels etc and will provide a hygienic cleaning of the bathroom and toilet). Please respect this as is the only way to economize operational expenses and keep rental rates low.
Please, also respect other visitors discomfort with tobacco smoke smell in closed spaces. Should you wish so, you may smoke at the open-air patio.
-- The Neighborhood --
The neighborhood is both quiet (during the night) and vivid (during / after working hours). It comprises many old neoclassical low-height buildings used as homes and offices.
The space (part of a late neoclassical and interwar years preserved building) is conveniently located within the triangle formed by the buzzy Trion Navarchon, Riga Feraiou pedestrian streets and Pl. Ipsilon Alonion sq. Since 1995 this urban triangle has been characterized to be part of the architectural heritage of neoclassical Patras and all old buildings have to be preserved.
You may find restos, cafeterias, bars, shops, market and services shops, all within 2-5 mins. walk. Patras down-town center is within 10 mins walk.
You may as well enjoy easy, short distance visits to St. Andrew Cathedral (largest in Balkans), or strolls on the waterfront (10mins walk) to enjoy the purple sunsets. Monuments, mostly of Roman period (Conservatory, Nymphaea, Castle, Agora, Mithras temples etc) as well as some really beautiful Greek orthodox churches (Pantanassa and Pantokratoras) within 5-25 mins walks.

-- Some history --
If interested, herewith the history of the building...
The building used to be the residence of a large Patras family. The building architectural elements and form classify it as a "neo-classical and interwar years period building". It was build at 1939 by my grandfather to accommodate his family (comprising grandparents, parents and 8 children). The ground floor space accommodated the couple that was helping the family with every day activities; part of it was also used as a storage, laundry and pantry. The space also served as a safe-place ("bunker") during the Patras air-strikes in the beginning of WW2; as it was part of the first house in the neighborhood that was constructed with reinforced concrete, the space provided shelter to the family members and neighbors alike during air-force raids.
Last refurbishment was completed in 2000. I try to keep the original architectural character of the building and make it as functional as possible.Get the full listing »
