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
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.
Sehr schöne, moderne und gepflegte Wohnung mit Blick auf die Akropolis.
Uns hat der Aufenthalt in Athen sehr gut gefallen.
Metro und Lebensmittelläden in naher Umgebung.
Die Wohnung können wir weiter empfehlen.
George thank you very much for everything!
The apartment is better than it looks in the photos and owner very helpful at all times, answering the mobile phone and offering to provide an airport transfer.
Great and recommended.
From there you can visit the Acropolis perfectly fair because there are buses ali lelvan you up in 15 minutes off.
Excellent host! Great communication, and great welcome!
We stayed at George for two nights only but I have to say I was impressed with the friendly and warm welcome we had from the landlords. They nicely waited for us when we were almost two hours late (thanks!) and even gave us a basket with Makedonian wine, little biscuits and pickled olives! We were very surprised and grateful. Superb welcome. The appartment is very beautiful, with an incredible diner table set. There's a big flat screen tv with many international chanels. The kitchen is furnished with everything you need and extremely clean. The rooms were very cozy and comfortable, except the pillows which were rock hard. There was even a bath in the bathroom and everything was clean. Honnestly, I have nothing bad to say about my stay, I think it was the nicest and most comfortable place I stayed in all of my numerous trips. Perfecto. (Ah, and it's very close to the bus station, a market and, of course, the beautiful beach!)
All was perfect. The appartment is well designed and equipped in artistic way. Location is good and calm. Mr. George provided aeropot transfere and hi is very polite and accesible for any question any time. Highly recomended.

The apartment was exactly as you see on the site. It was clean and well maintained. Close to sea and tram / bus stations. Located in a quiet neighborhood with restaurants and shops within walking distance. Public transportation is very cheap (1.40 / 90 min valid tram / metro / bus) there is hardly any non checked on tickets!
We have let us get at the airport by a cousin of George. For about 50 euros you get dropped off at the apartment and immediately the key for hands. Along the way we got some tips about Athens. With the tram you're in 25 minutes in central Athens. There you can visit the most on foot if you like walking. With the X96 bus we went back to the airport for 10 Euros (45min)
Het appartement was precies zoals je op de site ziet. Het was schoon en goed onderhouden. Dicht bij zee en tram/bus stations. Ligt in een rustige wijk met restaurantjes en winkels op loopafstand. Openbaar vervoer is erg goedkoop ( 1,40/90 min geldig in tram/metro/bus ) er wordt overigens nauwelijks tot niet gecontroleerd op kaartjes!
Wij hebben ons op laten halen op de luchthaven door een neef van George. Voor zo'n 50 euro wordt je bij het appartement afgezet en is ook meteen de sleutel voor handen. Onderweg kregen we nog wat tips over Athene. Met de tram ben je in 25 min in centrum van Athene. Daar kun je het meeste te voet bezichtigen mits je van wandelen houd. Met de X96 bus zijn we voor 10 euro terug naar de luchthaven gegaan ( 45min)
This studio-apartment is really cosy and nice, and in a very fine neighborhood. It is close to everything within 300 meters. For restaurants you will have to go a little further into the Kalithea-center. From here to the center of Athens, you just have to go with the bus 040, at the mainroad, only 10 minutes walk from the apartment. It is a fine place to stay, and you can easily cook your own food in the studio, if you don’t want to go to restaurants. There is a quite new bathroom with a washingmachine. We also enjoyed the balcony. We stayed at this place for two days, and liked it. If you depend on using the internet with wifi, make sure you get the code from George & Co, and know that, it is not the best connection. A lot of places we visited, share their wifi-connection with more apartments, and that will result in weaker signal for some. Other apartments we have been visiting, had the router inside the apartment, and we never had any problems with signal or connections. See more details on: http://mytripingreece.blogspot.dk/
This is a great two room apartment very close to the beaches – only a few blocks down the road. The place have everything you will need, also for home-cooking. The big balcony is perfect for outdoor people. A very quiet neighborhood, and very easy to get to the center of Athens from here. Just go with the tram 3 towards Syntagma. You will find the tram at the mainroad only a few blocks away. There is a little shoppingcenter nearby with a very big and nice supermarket. In the evenings you can take a walk to the beach and find great restaurants, or go to the center of Paleo Falira. We stayed for 3 days in this perfect apartment, and as George fixed the “burned” router, we had an ok signal to connect to the wifi-internet. We are sure, that George and Co, with a few adjustments, in future will turn into a perfect choise of your stay. See more details on: http://mytripingreece.blogspot.dk/
We had a wonderful stay.
Apartment was just fine, nice and spacious. Max sleeps 3.
Bus line 40 in 40 minutes in the center of Athens.
We arrived a little later on as planned, but that was no problem.
George picked us fine and we have to bring to the airport us away. As we flew back late we could without problem until 18:00
Remain in the apartment.
Super settled George.
Can definitely recommend it if you like to sit in a typical Greek neighborhood and do not mind to do some traveling this apartment.
We hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad.
Appartement was prima in orde, lekker ruim. Max 3 slaapplaatsen.
Met de bus lijn 40 in 40 minuten in het centrum van Athene.
We kwamen wat later aan als gepland, maar dat was geen probleem.
George heeft ons prima opgevangen en we hebben ons weg laten brengen naar het vliegveld. Omdat we laat terugvlogen konden we zonder probleem tot 18.00
In het appartement blijven.
Super geregeld George .
Kan dit appartement zeker aanbevelen als je het leuk vindt om in een typisch Griekse wijk te zitten en het niet erg vindt om wat te reizen.
