A.U.R.A. 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. You will admire its view and absorb its energy both from the dining room 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 penthouse situated on the 4th and 5th floors, is characterized by visitors as being calm, bright, elegant and comfortable. To visit Athens, it is ideally located in the area of Thission.
Thission is probably 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 penthouse is literally 10 minutes’ walk from the Acropolis, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Acropolis museum and other points of interest, 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).

Reviews for this host's other properties
The apartment is very good, near the metro that takes you to the center of Athens ... There is a bakery, pharmacy, cafes and a supermarket well next, George proved to be a good person and the next door neighbor has treated us very well and willing any kind of help.
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.
We stayed at this beautiful apartment and we definitely would repeat. We didnt meet George, but we knew Panos, a great host. It was really beautiful and near Everything (shopping streets, bus stops, taxis, and walking it's 4 km away from the tourist part. Wifi was a little bit bad but we cant find something bad on this apartment. Thank you Panos! ;)
Great place to stay, quiet air conditioning, good location on the marina with an adjoining beach. Recommended!
Prima Unterkunft, leise Klimaanlage, gute Lage an der Marina mit angrenzendem Strand. Empfehlenswert!
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
Beautiful luxury apartment in rich, luxurious kind baby boomer neighborhood with unfortunately some ants in the kitchen and kakkerlak..was a shock but it remained at that one happy. Stainless steel appliances, except a microwave. Great two air conditioners and ice trays in the freezer, indispensable in the Athens heat. The owner was by George not informed of the time of our arrival, which was confusing for all. George Ws has what many apartments under its management; We have not seen his face IIG. We recommend the owner to leave some information about public transport (tram, metro, bus and taxi) because it takes time to sort out eea. The bakery around the corner is great. Beach is not next door but what stops away with the tram, we had no time for about, so much to see and do in the city :)
Mooi luxe appartement in rijke, luxe soort babyboomer buurt met helaas wat mieren in de keuken en een kakkerlak..was even schrikken maar t bleef bij die ene gelukkig. Alle denkbare keukenapparatuur, behalve een magnetron. Geweldig twee airco's en ijsblokjes trays in de vriezer, onmisbaar in de Atheense warmte. De eigenaar was door George niet op de hoogte gesteld van het tijdstip van onze komst, wat verwarrend voor allen was. Ws heeft George wat veel appartementen onder zijn beheer; wij hebben zijn gezicht iig niet gezien. We raden de eigenaar aan om wat info achter te laten over het openbaar vervoer (tram, metro, bus en taxi) want het kost tijd om eea uit te zoeken. De bakker om de hoek is geweldig. Strand is niet naast de deur maar wat haltes verderop met de tram, wij hadden er geen tijd voor over, zoveel te zien en te doen in de stad:)
We spend one beautiful week in Athens and the appartement in Kallithea provided for all our needs. A little balcony, air-cond., tv, a kitchen and a clean bathroom with washingmachine. The friendly owner was very polite and answered all our questions with a pleasant smile. Close to the appartement you`ll find a lovely bakery, a supermarket, a freddocino coffeshop and the best pita in town! With the bus stopping just in the next street, we could reach either the Akropolis or the beach within 15 min.
BTW: The allready tuned-in radiostation "Pepper 96,6" is fantastic!
We stay in the Villa really liked. The accommodation exceeded our expectations with respect to the outdoor area and the beautiful landscaping. The house was perfect for 2 families with one child. Eleni took care caring to us and we did not miss anything. Beautifully was also a roof terrace with views of the sea and at night the view of the starry sky.
A very relaxing and wonderful vacation in a very nice small mountain town with a very nice little tavern with very nice owners.
Uns hat der Aufenthalt in der Villa sehr gut gefallen. Die Unterkunft übertraf unsere Erwartungen bezogen auf das Außengelände und die wunderschöne Gartengestaltung. Das Haus war ideal für 2 Familien mit je einem Kind. Eleni hat sich fürsorglich um uns gekümmert und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Wunderschön war auch die Dachterrasse mit Blick auf das Meer und abends der Blick in den Sternenhimmel.
Ein sehr entspannender und wunderschöner Urlaub in einem sehr schönen kleinen Gebirgsstädtchen mit einer ganz netten kleinen Taverne mit sehr netten Inhabern.
Very nice, modern and clean apartment with views of the Acropolis.
We stay in Athens very much.
Metro and grocery stores in the vicinity.
The apartment we can recommend.
