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.

Reviews for this host's other properties
El apartamento tiene una ubicación excepcional. El propietario contesta los mensajes rápidamente, aunque no nos atendió a nuestra llegada ni salida, ni se preocupo por si necesitábamos algo durante la estancia o si posteriormente estabamos contentos, afortunadamente no hizo falta. Al apartamento le faltan cosas básicas, aunque nos indicaron que podíamos usar sal, servilletas , café..no había nada de esto y tuvimos que reponerlo nosotros, por lo demás todo correcto.
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.
Die Wohnung entspricht voll und ganz der Beschreibung! Sie ist großzügig, hell und liegt in einem sehr schönen Athener Viertel mit netten Restaurants und Cafés in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft. Die Akropolis, die Agora und das Touristenviertel Plaka sind zu Fuß zu erreichen, wenn man Lust auf einen ca. 20 minütigen Spaziergang durch Athen hat. Da aber auch die U-Bahn in unmittelbarer Nähe ist, kann man natürlich auch damit bequem durch Athen fahren.
Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt, wozu auch der äußerst freundliche Service von George und seinen Mitarbeitern beigetragen hat.
schöne wohnung … tip-top … sauber … und ein wenig abgelegen … 1 stunde mit dem tram ins centrum.
George est vraiment très sympa et accueillant.
L'appartement est superbe et très bien placé. Le quartier est calme et pas très loin des transports en commun. Je recommande cet appartement et cet hôte.
Trés beau logement bien situé.L'arrêt du tramway pour une liaison directe à l'Acropole est à 200m ce qui a été très pratique pour nous qui faisions visiter la Grèce antique à notre petite-fille.
El apartamento ha cubierto nuestras espectativas. Buena ubicación para visitar el centro de la ciudad. Alojamiento confortable y bien equipado. Barrio tranquilo aunque el ruido del trafico se percibe bastante (Atenas es una ciudad con mucho trafico a todas horas)
Ningun problema en la recepcion de las llaves ni en la salida.
George hat sich um alles nötige gekümmert und immer sehr schnell und zuverlässig auf unsere Mails reagiert. Als wir unsere Ferien nicht im ursprünglichen Haus verbringen konnten, da es Wetterschäden erhalten hatte, hat er uns sofort eine neue, sehr schöne Unterkunft besorgt. Alles hat alles super geklappt und George ist sehr freundlich und kompetent.
George organized everything well and always answered our emails quick and helpful. After our booked house had weather damages he immediately organized us an other very good accommodation. Everything went so well and George was always helpful and friendly.
Thank you George!
