This is an exceptional place! Begining of the year I moved to Belgium and, as a temporary location while looking for a fix appartment I stayed in Sleutelhuys almost 2 months. It was difficult because of covid times but Sylvie (owner) helped me a lot. She is extremely kind and takes care about all the details. Always tries to keep contact with you to provide help, advice or whatever you need and whenever! The room was quite big, the bed very comfortable, once of the most comfortables where I have slept! The kitchen had all you need and living room area was very nice. I had to work from there during the mandatory quarantine and they immediately provided an extra table and chair to install my office there. During these two months I felt like at home! I would recommend the stay there, for sure.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
