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.

Contact person was on time at the apartment, training was short (without forgetting important) and friendly.
Very nice apartment, simply furnished but functional.
Had (unfortunately only two days) a very good time in a pleasant environment.
To Athens and tavernas and bars all to reach the beach, Einkaufsmöglichskeiten, tram on foot.
With great pleasure again.
Kontaktperson war pünktlich an der Wohnung, Einweisung war kurz (ohne wichtiges zu vergessen) und freundlich.
Sehr schöne Wohnung, einfach eingerichtet aber zweckmässig.
Hatten (leider nur zwei Tage) eine sehr schöne Zeit in angenehmer Umgebung.
Strand, Einkaufsmöglichskeiten, Strassenbahn nach Athen und Tavernen bzw. Bars alles zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Sehr gerne wieder.
I have been in the flat for 5 nights. The situation of the flat is okay. It's a little bit far to the centre but therefore it is really quite and there is an other centre/big streets with a lot of stores really near. Still, it doesn't take too long to get to the centre (Akropolis). Wheter you can take the bus/metro and it takes you 10-15min or you take a Taxi, which is also not expensive and only takes 10mins.
The elevator is helpful, the balcony is a nice place to sit and the room are also clean and well furnished. The wifi Router is directly next to the bed but still it is slow or sometimes not even usable.
All in all it was a great stay in Athens and I would totally recommend this flat.

Beautiful apartment to relax. Close to a supermarket and public transport. Many shops close by for shopping. Good advice from the host to find a restaurant.
Bel appartement pour se détendre. Proche d'un supermarché et des transports en commun. Nombreux magasins tout proches pour faire du shopping. De bons conseils de l'hôte pour trouver un restaurant.
Beautiful appartment, clean, confortable... In a very good location in Athens, i highly recommand!!! George was very accomodating and friendly. Thank you very much :-)
Excellent apartment and location. Everything was as it was seen on website! Thank you
We have been welcomed by a friend of George at the airport. He drove us to the appartment when it was already in the evening. The moment we came we were surprised by the service of all the things that were present in the appartment. The tools in the kitchen were very complete. Sugar, coffee,tea and the supplies were present and ready for using. A little garden at the backsite was complete and looked very charming. The only thing was that cats made it also to a place of there own, so you could smell as soon as you opened the door.
We enyoied it very much.
Thank you for the great hospitality.
Our stay in Athens was excellent. The apartment meets all the conditions: the photos are accurate and representative. No surprise.
The area is very nice and you can magner there, drinking ... 20 minutes from the center (040 bus) which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
George thank you for your help and for sure we will return!
Notre séjour à Athènes était excellent. L'appartement répond à toutes les conditions : les photos sont exactes et représentatives. Aucune surprise.
Le quartier est très agréable et on peut y magner, boire... 20 min du centre (le bus 040) qui est à 5 min à pied de l'appartement.
Merci George pour ton aide et c'est certain, nous reviendrons !
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.
