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
It was a modern loft in a very old house. But the apartment was very okay! The transfer from the aeroport to the apartment and back was great.(arranged by george)
Athens is a beautyful place to be for about 4 days :)
The only badly thing is, caused of the central location, that it is a bit loud at night.
Good time in Greece wishes melanie
After a week in this flat, 5 adults (parents and three grown up "kids"), we just have positive words to say about the flat and the host. We are pretty active travellers and we found the the flat well situated to be a good starting point for excursions in Athens and the neighbourhood. The flat is well equipped, very clean and the hosts responds quickly on any questions. If you need a large flat with more than two bedrooms, you don't need to hesitate about this alternative. But remember Athens is a big city, there's a lot of cars and a lot of noise, this flat is not quiet, but probably one of the better places to stay at.
We stayed 4 people in George's apartment for a long weekend in Athens. I only have good things to say about the flat and George as a host. The flat is very modern and luxurious. There is everything you need from kitchen supplies to bedsheets and towels. Bedroom and living room was very comfortable to stay in. We enjoyed the view to Acropolis from the balcony. The location was perfect - right in the center and walk distance to the main sightseeings and interesting spots. Only a few minutes cab drive to clubs and evening restaurants.
George was a great host who welcomed us with a bottle of wine and tips to Athens. We had a easy and smooth communication over email and he was always polite, friendly and ready to help if needed. We will definitely stay in this flat next time we visit Athens.
everything was perfect.
I had a wonderful stay this summer (2014). The location was perfect! It was close to the beaches a supermarket and even the city center and clubs arent that far! Its a quite nice neighbourhoud with lots of bakeries in the area with delicious sweets, It is also close to the tram and metro lines are easily accesible which makes travelling easy. The house itself was very clean and cozy everything you need it is included! George is a very helpfull and nice caretaker! Whatever question or problem you have you can contact him and he we be assisting you at his best immediatly! I am recommending this amazing beachflat to everyone who wants to have a relaxing good time and close to the good places in Athens! You will feel right at home !
We were very satisfied with the apartment. The apartment was clean and the service was very good and nice. I can only recommend the apartment ....
Wir waren super zufrieden mit der Wohnung. Die Wohnung war sauber und der Service war sehr gut und nett. Ich kann die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen ....
Hello, I had 4 wonderful days in Athens, we were 4 people and the apartment which is also very good and clean. In particular, the proximity to the center, the Acropolis and Plaka has surprised us, on foot it is 10-15min, by taxi it does not cost more than 5 euros. George was a good host. Greeting
Hallo, ich hatte 4 Wunderschöne Tage in Athen, wir waren 4 Personen und die Wohnung was auch sehr gut und sauber. Vor allem die Nähe zum Zentrum, Akropolis und Plaka hat uns überrascht, zu Fuss sind es 10-15min, mit dem Taxi kostet es nicht auch mehr als 5 Euro. George war auch ein guter Gastgeber. Gruss
Very nice appartment. Well situated. great view. Everything was also very well organised. Great trip we had.
Original apartment, cosy, large,
located in the city center, very close to animated places, ok to visit the city by foot
Clean, well equipped, washing machine, dishwashing...
It's a loft, so if you need intimity, it's quite difficult, room are only separated with trick drapes.
The apartment looks exactly like the photos show. In general it was very tidy, clean and modernly refurbished, although some devices were out of order (oven, half cooker...). We also missed a microwave.
The blinds kept the apartment completely dark at night and only a small and discontinuous sound from the fridge could annoy people with sleep problems. But it was not a problem at all for my fiancée and me.
The only inconvenience we found was the location. The apartment is a bit far from the city centre (45 minutes by walking) and the closest metro station is 10 minutes by walking.
All in all, I would recommend this apartment. However, if I would gone back to Athens I'd try to stay in an apartment better located.
