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.

Bon accueil de Georges qui nous a bien facilité les choses sur place (taxi aéroport - appartement, taxis pour aller au Piree) et toujours très prompt à nous aider.
L'appartement correspondait tout à fait à nos vœux: propre, agréable, et bien situé, dans un quartier sympathique, très proche du tram qui rejoint le centre d'Athènes, ou le Pirée, et aussi très proche des commerces, et de la plage !
Nous avons profité pleinement de notre séjour !
The apartments are really excellent. We stayed (3 adults and 1 infant) for 5 days. Good location-3 stops by underground to the historical centre in a good and calm district, very quite in the night, air condition works perfect, good equipment, washing machine, balcony, grill. Very helpful owner of the apartments, enough space for 2 families. Near is supermarket and farmacy. Excellent for people with small children. Internet works a little bit slowly (low speed): it's enough for searching but impossible to watch movie. We definitely would stay there next time there.
Appartement confortable et conforme a la description et aux photos. Jolie terrasse avec vue sur l'Acropole. Le rendez vous d'accueil est ponctuel et efficace. La localisation, pres d'un boulevard tres passant la nuit, amène un bruit de roulement des voitures.
Una estancia magnifica, el apartamento perfecto y Pavlov un amfitrion en toda regla. Muy contentos de nuestra estancia en Atenas.
El apartamento muy bien , a 15 min andando del museo acropolis y entrada a la misma. El dueño ofrece ademas transporte al puerto y aeropuerto, en nuestro caso nos recogio a las 07.00 am del puerto e hicimos checking a las 07.30 pm. excelente.
Perfekt eingerichtetes Luxus-Apartment, traumhafte Aussicht, zuvorkommender Gastgeber, der auf alle Wünsche eingeht, eine Wohnungsbeschreibung, die hält, was sie verspricht - was will man mehr. Einzig der leichte Verkehrslärm in einem der beiden Schlafzimmer mag empfindlichere Personen stören. Zu Fuß eine Viertelstunde in die Innenstadt, mit dem Taxi knapp 5 Euro.
Very well equiped, with everything you need to cook and spend a few days. Very nice place!
Prachtig appartement, zeer verzorgd in een leuke vlotte wijk dichtbij zee, havens en winkels. We werden ontvangen door de eigenaresse die een heerlijk flesje wijn, water en cake voor ons had klaarstaan. Appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien. Dichtbij de tramhalte van lijn 4 die er ongeveer 25 minuten over doet om in het centrum van Athene te komen. We hebben drie super fijne dagen gehad in het appartement en zullen hier zeker terug komen wanneer we weer naar Athene gaan.
Sehr schönes Apartment, mit toller Ausstattung und einem super Ausblick auf die Akropolis. George war sehr hilfsbereit und hat bei allem geholfen.
Nur zu empfehlen!
I enjoyed the apartment very much. It is very comfortable and really well placed... and I must say (visiting much places here) that in my opinion this district is the most beautiful part of Athens. it is clean... it is green..... interesting coast - many different beaches from wide sand ones to even quite wild with rocks wonderful for snorkeling especially... quite close to Acropolis, Placa .... quite close to Piraeus (possibility of visiting some islands ) a lot of well equipped shops around... good communication... just everything perfect.
