A.U.R.A. 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. You will admire its view and absorb its energy both from the dining room 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 penthouse situated on the 4th and 5th floors, is characterized by visitors as being calm, bright, elegant and comfortable. To visit Athens, it is ideally located in the area of Thission.
Thission is probably 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 penthouse is literally 10 minutes’ walk from the Acropolis, the Odeon of Herodes Atticus, the Acropolis museum and other points of interest, 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).
Underfloor heating / cooling and fun coils system, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV, CD and DVD players and book library. The kitchen, decorated with Corian bench, is fully equipped with gas stove, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with filtered water supply and freezer, cutlery, dishes and pans, kettle, French coffee maker, toaster.

Reviews of this property
We recently stayed at this Penthouse apartment with pool in the center of Athens. The stay could not have been nicer. We were there with 6 kids and 5 adults total and the place was beyond spacious and comfortable. The roof deck with pool was the best part of the space - such a great amenity - and the direct view of the Acropolis was not bad either! The Owner was extremely helpful, and George arranged for drivers for our trip. A plus!
Ideale locatie als je met een groep vrienden Athene wil bezoeken. Perfect gelegen, zeer groot penthouse van alle gemakken voorzien. Prima contact met de host. En ook een goeie service voor eventueel vervoer van en naar het vliegveld. Een meer dan prima verblijf hief gehad met 9 personen!!
Reviews for this host's other properties
In der Vorbereitung des Athen-Besuchs war George schon sehr hilfreich und organisierte die Abholung vom Flughafen zum Apartment.
Die Wohung ist sehr praktisch und gut eingerichtet. Sauber und aufgräumt. Alles Nötige auch im Küchenbereich vorhanden. Ich kann auch bestätigen, was Cora dazu schreibt. Die Lage ist sehr zentral. In rund 20 Minuten geht man zur Akropolis. Bis zur nächsten Metro-Station sind es nur gut 5 Minuten. Besonders möchte ich die Hilfsbereitschaft und Freundlichkeit der Besitzer-Familie hervorheben, die mit im Haus wohnt.
Wspaniałe mieszkanie w Atenach nad morzem, dobry dojazd do centrum, bardzo wygodne
Cet appartement a une superbe terrasse où l'on peux admirer le coucher de soleil. Le problème de cet appartement c'est que le canapé lit bascule et ce n'est pas tres agréable quand on dort durant tout une semaine. Il manquait quelques ustensiles de cuisine style passoir, torchons... tasse et grille pain non lavés et rangé dans le placard. Sino George est a notre disposition ce qui est agréable quand on ne connait pas la ville !
Staying at Georges place was very nice.
His Villa was above local standard and relaxing in the whirlpool after a long day in the surrounding ancient places or the beach made our trip complete.
Yeah, the beds might have been a little worn out and the crickets in the tree in front of the house were a bit noisy...
But having a A/C in each room equaled that little drawbacks easily out.
George himself is easy going as well.
Whenever we had a question or needed a little help, he reacted and helped immediately.
We'd for sure book with him and this place again.
Wszystko było w porządku, gospodarz apartamentu- miły, pomocny ;) Mieszkanie czyste i przytulne w lokalizacji 2-3 stacji metrem do centrum miasta.
I went to Athens with 5 more friends. We spent 3 nights at the apartment and it was great, we felt like at home. 10 minutes walk to the underground station and just a few stops to the city centre. Fully equipped, all the furniture and electrical appliances were new. George and Panos were amazing hosts; George replied quickly to all my emails and to all my questions, being kind to us all the time. Panos showed us the place and bought a couple of things that were missing, so we could feel comfortable there.
I highly recommend this apartment!!
Das geräumige Apartment liegt zentral in einem quirligen Viertel und doch ist es nachts meist ruhig. Es ist wunderbar ausgestattet, Kaffee ist vorhanden, zur Begrüßung erhielten wir Süßigkeiten und Ouzo und auch Saft und Wasser standen bereit. George und auch der Besitzer, der im Haus wohnt, haben uns in allen unseren Belangen unterstützt. Insgesamt war alles wie beschrieben, mir persönlich innen etwas zu dunkel und kalt und draußen auf der Terrasse zu wenig sonnig.
WONDERFUL PLACE. CENTRAL, CLEAN, BEAUTIFUL, AND QUIET. DEFINITELY MY PLACE FOR EVERY TIME I GO TO ATHENS :)
