Welcome to AURA - Acropolis Unique Residence Apartments
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 of this property
Ons verblijf in dit appartement was fantastisch! Bij aankomst werden we hartelijk, persoonlijk ontvangen door de eigenaresse. Ook de transfer van het vliegveld was geregeld. Dit appartement heeft een magnifiek uitzicht, zowel overdag als 's nachts. wij hadden het geluk dat het volle maan was, en de volle maan boven de Acropolis stond boven een zilver omrande wolk! Het appartement ligt in een zeer vriendelijke straat met vele leuke koffiehuisjes en restaurantjes en op loopafstand van het centrum en metro- en treinstation. Met de metro ben je in 20 minuten aan zee, comfortabel reizen, voor een zeer goedkoop tarief.
De inrichting van het appartement en terras zijn weloverwogen, stijlvol, praktisch en de slaapplaatsen prima. We hebben genoten! Een dikke tien.
French for "bobo", the place is ideal for the first view (exceptional), then the situation (quiet and 3 minutes walk from "peripatos" path that goes around the Acropolis ). For the hostess Marianne attentive and fluent French. And for "Terrace" surrounded by plants and trees which grow 2 which act as umbrella and a rooftop swimming pool that allows a necessary relaxation after hot days of sightseeing. Our favorite heart of the 5-occupied housing during our stay in Greece (tied with another). Thank you to Marianne.
Pour les français "bobo", l'endroit est idéal, pour la vue d'abord (d'exception), la situation ensuite ( calme et à 3 mn à pieds du "peripatos" : chemin qui fait le tour de l'Acropole). Pour l'hôtesse : Marianne attentive et parlant couramment français. Et puis, pour "la Terrasse" entourée de plantes et sur laquelle poussent 2 oliviers qui font office de parasol et une piscine sur le toit qui permet une détente nécessaire après de chaudes journées de visites. Notre coup de cœur parmi les 5 logements occupés pendant notre séjour en Grèce(à égalité avec un autre). Merci à Marianne.

Wspaniałe mieszkanie w Atenach nad morzem, dobry dojazd do centrum, bardzo wygodne
Cet appartement a une superbe terrasse où l'on peux admirer le coucher de soleil. Le problème de cet appartement c'est que le canapé lit bascule et ce n'est pas tres agréable quand on dort durant tout une semaine. Il manquait quelques ustensiles de cuisine style passoir, torchons... tasse et grille pain non lavés et rangé dans le placard. Sino George est a notre disposition ce qui est agréable quand on ne connait pas la ville !
Staying at Georges place was very nice.
His Villa was above local standard and relaxing in the whirlpool after a long day in the surrounding ancient places or the beach made our trip complete.
Yeah, the beds might have been a little worn out and the crickets in the tree in front of the house were a bit noisy...
But having a A/C in each room equaled that little drawbacks easily out.
George himself is easy going as well.
Whenever we had a question or needed a little help, he reacted and helped immediately.
We'd for sure book with him and this place again.
Wszystko było w porządku, gospodarz apartamentu- miły, pomocny ;) Mieszkanie czyste i przytulne w lokalizacji 2-3 stacji metrem do centrum miasta.
I went to Athens with 5 more friends. We spent 3 nights at the apartment and it was great, we felt like at home. 10 minutes walk to the underground station and just a few stops to the city centre. Fully equipped, all the furniture and electrical appliances were new. George and Panos were amazing hosts; George replied quickly to all my emails and to all my questions, being kind to us all the time. Panos showed us the place and bought a couple of things that were missing, so we could feel comfortable there.
I highly recommend this apartment!!
Das geräumige Apartment liegt zentral in einem quirligen Viertel und doch ist es nachts meist ruhig. Es ist wunderbar ausgestattet, Kaffee ist vorhanden, zur Begrüßung erhielten wir Süßigkeiten und Ouzo und auch Saft und Wasser standen bereit. George und auch der Besitzer, der im Haus wohnt, haben uns in allen unseren Belangen unterstützt. Insgesamt war alles wie beschrieben, mir persönlich innen etwas zu dunkel und kalt und draußen auf der Terrasse zu wenig sonnig.
WONDERFUL PLACE. CENTRAL, CLEAN, BEAUTIFUL, AND QUIET. DEFINITELY MY PLACE FOR EVERY TIME I GO TO ATHENS :)
Very nice appartment, very central. Parking around the corner. All clean and well equipped. Even a cake was there for me. Only little minus is 3 windows to the inside aisle of the house without shades.
Can recommend this place 100%
