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.

Reviews for this host's other properties
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.
George was extremly helpfull and very nice to work with .
The appartment is lovely and has the best location - close the the port and with bus 040 you get yourself to the Historical center in no time any time of the day.
Fantastic fiew over the marina and easy to park your car.
I strongly recommend it !
Thank you so much, will be back for more !
We had wonderful days in the apartment. It is spacious, clean and beautiful and fully equipped. Even an Nespresso machine.
However, we found a strange odor around or from the sofa.
We will definitely return.
With Kind Regards, Koos and Tineke Boersma

It was a great stay in Athens. Nice appartment, good and clean. George is also a very nice owner who you can ask everything if you have questions.
Nog even voor alle Nederlanders: mooi appartement. Je verblijft tussen allemaal Griekse families waardoor je echt het idee krijgt athene echt te beleven.
Een aanrader, mooi en schoon appartement en met het openbaar vervoer ben je in 8 minuten in het centrum van athene. Een taxi nemen kan natuurlijk ook want dat kost daar haast niks.
The apartment has a spectacular view of the sunset in Athens. The terrace is spacious and well furnished, as well as the apartment, although I must admit that from the point of view of cleanliness left something 'to be desired. George Council to put in place a couple of electrical outlets "flying" ... the bathroom is very small as well as the kitchen. (Maybe draw a little picture 'in deception). well located apartment in the complex (at least for us with the car reached the city center in 10 minutes) with a supermarket a few meters away.
L'appartamento ha una vista spettacolare sui tramonti di Atene. Il terrazzo è spazioso e ben arredato, così come l'appartamento, anche se devo ammettere che dal punto di vista della pulizia lasciava un po' a desiderare. Consiglio George di rimettere a posto un paio di prese elettriche "volanti"... il bagno è molto piccolo cosi come la cucina. (forse le foto traggono un po' in inganno). nel complesso appartamento ben posizionato (almeno per noi che con la macchina si raggiungeva il centro città in 10 minuti ) con supermercato a pochi metri di distanza.
The apartment is very nice ! It has a large living room, two large bedrooms and one smaller one, a nice kitchen and a lovely balcony. It is situated in Massouri, which is 20 minutes form the center of Athens and is a lively neighborhood.
We enjoyed our stay very much and can certainly recommend this apartment.
We have not been able to stay in the apartment planned due to an electrical problem but George we were offered two others. It is a remarkable host everything was perfectly arranged airport transfer, various information, kindly .... We highly recommend
Nous n'avons pas pu séjourner dans l'appartement prévu à cause d'un problème électrique mais George nous en a proposé 2 autres. C'est un hôte remarquable tout a été arrangé à la perfection: transfert aéroport, renseignements divers, amabilité.... Nous le recommandons vivement
George is a very nice and polite guy who give you all the informations you need to discover Atene!
The apartment is very nice and large with all kind of confort if you want to visit the city without spending too much...just a brief walk from the underground thanks to which you can visit easily every part of Atene!
I was a guest for a week. The apartment has air conditioning, washing machine was ideal, as compared to the transport position, if you wanted to reach over the center of the beaches. A good compromise. Thanks for the hospitality.
Sono stato ospite per una settimana. L'appartamento dotato di aria condizionata, lavatrice era l'ideale, anche come posizione rispetto ai trasporti, se si voleva raggiungere oltre che il centro le spiagge. Un buon compromesso. Grazie per l'ospitalità.
