AURA derives from the energy which you will be experiencing as a visitor.
First and most important is the energy that flows from the Acropolis of Athens. The view to it is stunning from the living room and the bedroom as well as from the roof top terrace and the swimming pool. It also derives from the renewable geothermal and solar energy systems that were designed to insure heating and cooling, domestic hot water production and swimming pool heating in an environment-friendly way. Last but not least, positive energy is emitted from your hosts and owners who are trying not just to be accommodating but treat you as their own guests. It is only normal the mix has created the Acropolis Unique Residence Apartments.
The apartment is situated on the 6th floor. To visit Athens, it is ideally located in the area of Thission, a residential area at close proximity to all major points of interest during your stay.
Thission is actually the most appealing of all neighborhoods in the center of Athens, for visitors as well as for Athenians. It combines the serenity of the archaeological sites, the pedestrian streets, the neoclassical houses, the museums and art galleries, with the lively cafes and bars, the Athenian family walks during the weekends, and the open air craft market.
The apartment is literally 10 minutes’ walk from the Acropolis, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Acropolis museum and other sites, through Apostolou Pavlou and Dionyssiou Areopagitou pedestrian streets. They are characterized as offering one the top most beautiful city walks in Europe. A variety of shops (grocery, bakery, bookstore and many others) as well as some excellent tavernas / restaurants and cafes are found at a 2minutes walk from the penthouse. The owner will be happy to suggest them to you. And if you wish to experience an open air movie theater, Athens Cine Thission has been rated by BBC as one of the 10 most beautiful cinemas in the world (open May-September).
The apartment has direct access to a private terrace refreshed with potted herbs and a cozy little corner to enjoy some nice appetizers. It also leads to the roof top terrace and the swimming pool which are shared with another AURA apartment. The olive, orange and lemon trees and the bevy of chirping birds complement the amazing view to the Acropolis, to the Athens Observatory and to the whole of Attica till the south sea coast. The swimming pool is enjoyed throughout the year as it is heated and covered during the winter season. A unique feeling no other apartment offers in Athens’ historic centre.
The view to the Acropolis especially at night is stunning from the living room’s sofa as from your pillows when you decide to rest after a wonderful day of exploration.
Amenities also include:
Heating and cooling through fun coils, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV, CD and DVD players. The kitchen is fully equipped with ceramic hobs, electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, cutlery, dishes and pans, kettle, French coffee maker, and toaster. Bed linen and bath towels are provided. A spacious walk in closet is designed to make your stay even more comfortable and to keep your luggage, ironing board and iron out of the way. Private parking is available for free in the building’s parking lot, upon request. Finally a spacious elevator serves the 6th floor.
Your hosts, genuine, openhearted Athenians will treat you with the traditional Greek hospitality and will be happy to arrange for you tailor made day trips, in and around Athens. A number of services are available upon request at an extra but very reasonable cost, including cleaning service and breakfast served at the apartment or personal trainer and spa treatments.

Reviews for this host's other properties
I would definately recommed the Apartment to everyone. It is fully renovated and modern decorated. George was a perfect Host and always very helpful.
The location is unbeatable for sure. Great Areas like Plaka, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Kolonaki are all within walking distance, from 1 minute away to a maximum of 15 minutes.
Athens in general is allways worth it to go there.
Thanks George. See you next time in Athens.
The location is unbeatable - a quiet side street, but seconds from the Acropolis site, museum and the adjoining metro, Easy walks to all the major sites. The flat is nice - a decent size, good bathroom, clean, well appointed. Its a raised ground floor flat, so the views either way aren't much, but you only have to turn the corner for views of Hadrian's Temple or the Acropolis.
Although this property is not the most convenient to the center of Athens, if you have business in the northern suburbs, as we did, it is the perfect spot. The neighborhood is clean, with many restaurants and shops within walking distance, including a big A/B. There is a big park with a well maintained fenced playground nearby as well, which my daughter enjoyed. The apartment itself is very large and thoughtfully stocked, with a comfortable, well-equipped kitchen. While we had trouble with one of the toilets, everything else was fine. Beds were extremely comfortable, and it was quiet at night. The building felt secure and the neighborhood felt safe. We asked for cleaning and a friendly woman called Ellie came and did a thorough job for not much money. Management was responsive to requests. The metro is a 15 minute walk away, though it is down some steep streets and they are harder to walk on the way back! Once there it is very quick into the center.
The apartments are really excellent. We stayed (3 adults and 1 infant) for 5 days. Good location-3 stops by underground to the historical centre in a good and calm district, very quite in the night, air condition works perfect, good equipment, washing machine, balcony, grill. Very helpful owner of the apartments, enough space for 2 families. Near is supermarket and farmacy. Excellent for people with small children. Internet works a little bit slowly (low speed): it's enough for searching but impossible to watch movie. We definitely would stay there next time there.
Very well equiped, with everything you need to cook and spend a few days. Very nice place!
Very nice appartment exactly meeting our expectations. Site's description is perfect and Georges's support was indeed very nice and professional. Taxi driver was waiting for us with our name at the airport as expected.
We finally found the shortest way to walk to the tram which is about 15mn away from the appartment and very convinient when you want to visit Athenes and when it is around 35 to 38° outside! We do not mind walking a lot but frankly speaking taking the tram is very helpful.... we even took it to the beach and our recommandation is really to go at the very end of the tram and even take the bus (144) which drives you to very nice beaches... and even a very nice salty lake wher you can experience fishes eating your dead skins everywhere....
The only little thing to be mentioned is that we could run the washing machine while we were using the air conditioning.... but other than that, the appartment is really to be recommended!
I enjoyed the apartment very much. It is very comfortable and really well placed... and I must say (visiting much places here) that in my opinion this district is the most beautiful part of Athens. it is clean... it is green..... interesting coast - many different beaches from wide sand ones to even quite wild with rocks wonderful for snorkeling especially... quite close to Acropolis, Placa .... quite close to Piraeus (possibility of visiting some islands ) a lot of well equipped shops around... good communication... just everything perfect.
We recently stayed at this Penthouse apartment with pool in the center of Athens. The stay could not have been nicer. We were there with 6 kids and 5 adults total and the place was beyond spacious and comfortable. The roof deck with pool was the best part of the space - such a great amenity - and the direct view of the Acropolis was not bad either! The Owner was extremely helpful, and George arranged for drivers for our trip. A plus!
Very nice apartment close to all services : bakery, restaurants, pubs, and the beaches of course. You can easily walk to Lake Vouliagmeni (less than 10 minutes walk). Well equipped apartment with a pretty patio as shown on profile pictures.
We spent days in the vintage apartment and i fully recommend it to everyone. The apartment is well equipted. It is located outside but with public transport easy to go everywhere.
We had wonderful 5 days there! :)
