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.

WONDERFUL PLACE. CENTRAL, CLEAN, BEAUTIFUL, AND QUIET. DEFINITELY MY PLACE FOR EVERY TIME I GO TO ATHENS :)
Very nice appartment, very central. Parking around the corner. All clean and well equipped. Even a cake was there for me. Only little minus is 3 windows to the inside aisle of the house without shades.
Can recommend this place 100%
wir waren 5 Tage in Athen. Die Lage der Wohnung ist super für eine Städtereise, sehr zentral gelegen.
Die Vermittlung und Schlüsselübergabe hat sehr gut geklappt. Alle Anfragen wurden sofort beantwortet. Auch telefonisch konnten wir sofort vor Ort Kontakt aufnehmen. Sehr netter Umgangston und immer hilfsbereit.
George hat sich super um alles gekümmert.
Fazit: Sehr gute Wohnung, wir würden immer wieder dort buchen.
we had a plaesant stay at George´s Apartment in Piraeus. The Apartment is perfectyl located in the centre of Piraeus
The apartment we stayed was clean and very spacious. We also asked for an airport transfer and it was made in quite reasonable price with no problems. Contact we Mr George is ok but I would really appreciate bigger support before we made a decision and chose his apartment.
If I can make any clues for your stay in Athens - book an apartment nearby the sea and don't worry about transport time or cost to city center ;)
the apartment is very good and clean, near the center. But we had a chick in delay of 2 hours (14:00 instead 12:00). In general, we are satisfied.
C'est la seconde fois que nous louons cet appartement. Il correspond tout à fait à nos vœux (équipements, belle terrasse, proximité des commerces, et du tram pour Athènes ou le Pirée !). De plus cette année, nous avons découvert un appartement rénové (salon, salle de bains, chambre,...) et encore plus agréable !
George est toujours aussi disponible à nous aider en cas de besoin, et répond très rapidement !
Superbe séjour !
Amazing clean and cozy apartment with everything you need. great and save area, we really enjoyed the stay and can warmly recommend George as a host ;-))

George was an excellent house manager, replied quickly and in detail for each request. The house is very nice, quite and clean, very bright with a fantastic view on Athens's harbour and more. Everything worked well. Pireaus area is not so comfortable to get beaches and Acropoli (it took about 45/55 minutes) but you can easily get buses and the metro stop is about 10' far away.
George is a great host, his apartment is very pleasant and robust. If you are looking to stay in that area, then it is the best place to stay. George was very attentive to my needs and made everything possible to accommodate my desires.
