From the heights of the Acropolis, the ruins of the Erectheion watch over the immensity of the plains of Attica. Built in 407 B.C, this elegant temple, dedicated to the cult of the goddess Athena, the god, Poseidon and Erectheios, king of Athens, is, along with the Parthenon and the Propyea one part of a trio of monuments that are among the most visited in the world. Although the Greek capital overshadows its neighbors in its ancient architectural heritage, Athens is also a modern, vibrant and creative city. Taking advantage of being chosen as the host of the 2004 Olympic Games, it proceeded to renovate its working class areas and launched a vast rehabilitation program in order to get rid of its negative image as a noisy and unclean city. Numerous innovative and creative projects were undertaken. Entire neighborhoods were totally transformed, and a number of formerly condemned quarters came back to life with theatres, concert halls and trendy bars and restaurants. The Psiri quarter for example, has become an upper middle neighborhood for yuppies and many other Athenians in search of contemporary trends, animation and a lust for life.
Greek design and “art de vivre”
The Life Gallery Athens Hotel & Spa is a glass cube surrounded by vegetation, between cedars and pines, at the top of Athens northern suburbs. Its name is well chosen since the hotel seems to live and breathe as it regards the Acropolis, the 2,500 year old sanctuary of the goddess Athena. The design of the hotel is modern, innovative and minimalist in design, with colored jets of light and a filtered atmosphere. The purple, gray and white tones of the interiors add a touch of retro design to this very contemporary ambience.
The Ananea Spa is an ideal relaxation spot for weary urban nomads with its traditional ayurvedic treatments, in a blue haloed décor. And for those who like the idea of being immersed of nature, the hotel has two open-air pools and a garden of perfumed flowers and candles. In the cozy atmosphere of the Wine Gallery restaurant, local products are the order of the day accompanied by a selection of 227 international vintage wines.
The Life Gallery Athens Hotel & Spa is a refreshing and futuristic retreat in the heart of Europe’s oldest civilization.
The hotel’s Pisco Sour bar owes its name to a famous Peruvian cocktail made with grape brandy and lime juice. On October 18th, 2007, the Peruvian National Culture Institute declared the Pisco Sour a national cultural heritage.
