About the property

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.

Airport transport or any other transport is available upon demand at an additional but very reasοnable cost.

Thiseio is the name of a neighborhood in downtown Athens, Greece, northwest of the Acropolis, 1.5 km southwest of downtown, and 1 km southwest of city hall; its name derives from the Temple of Hephaestus, also known as ?hiseio, as it was, in earlier times, considered a temple of Theseus. The area also takes in the ancient Agora, Petralona, and Kerameikos, which includes the Assomaton Square. The area has cafes and meeting points, which are most crowded during summer, and is also served by the nearby ISAP train station of the same name.

A Beautiful Apartment in Athens with Pool & Acropolis view
average rating of 4.962963 based on 27 reviews

Only place to stay in Athens!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine the penthouse suite in a four star hotel overlooking the acropolis, from every window. Imagine the suite with a private shaded deck with swimming pool, again with spectacular view of acropolis. Imagine full service dining with a local flair literally steps from your front door.

Finally, imagine the owner of this retreat, treating you like a cherished friend visiting from overseas.

If you can picture this you understand why Acropolis Unique Residence Apartments is the only place I would stay in Athens.

Oh....and the cost...a fraction of that fictional 4 star penthouse suite.

So you will want to book this one early. And when you get there, give Marianne my best. She truly makes one feel like a guest in her home.

Great position with amazing view of the Acropolis

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marianne's apartment, made all the more special by meeting Marianne herself, who is delightful. We feel we now have a friend to share stories and recipes with - such a lovely bonus. The view of the Acropolis is amazing. It looks so close, like a framed picture in the lounge room but real. It is particularly special at night when it is all lit up. It was hard to go to sleep at night - we couldn't take our eyes off it, and you can see it from the bedroom due to the nifty window into the lounge room. The lounge room is a decent size for relaxing in. The children found it perfect for dancing to Greek music they discovered on the radio! The pool was a godsend. It was very hot when we were staying in Athens and I am not sure we would have survived without the pool to come back to. The presentation was lovely, down to the beautifully wrapped towels like presents at the end of each bed. Please note that pool towels are not included. You may want to bring some of those thin Turkish towels if you plan to sunbake or laze around the pool. We will definitely stay here again should we return to Athens. We organised transfers through George which worked really well. Paul was our driver and really informative.

Great location with a jaw-dropping view

  • 5 of 5

Pictures alone don't do this property justice. From first correspondence to check out the experience was amazing. The apartment was spotless, well located for exploring the city, and the almost-360 degree view from the pool deck is breathtaking. As for pre-arrival, I don't think George ever sleeps. He responded to emails promptly and provided detailed answers and clear check in and check out guidance. Also, I highly recommend the airport transfer option. Our flights arrived late and departed early. Pavlo was a welcome sight and helped us avoid negotiating taxis at odd hours. I would recommend this property wholeheartedly and will definitely stay again on future visits.

Wonderful apartment and shared pool with a view of the Akropolis. Clean, green and easy to use.

  • 5 of 5

Marianne we loved this property and vow to return. Giorgos your assistance was superb. We were travelling with our elderly mother and your property and hospitality made our trip care-free. We cannot imagine any improvements that are needed except more time to stay and visit with you next time.

Great location and wonderful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property and area with great restaurants and cafes. Flat very clean and spacious, owner very helpful and friendly. Pool and balcony area very pleasant. Only negatives are bathroom is very small and second bedroom area lacks privacy as it does not have any doors to it. Overall a very enjoyable visit to Athens.

Great location Great Service!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was located in close proximity to all the central Athens sites, most of which we walked to without any issues. The apartment was very nice and close to shopping and bakeries which made it great for breakfast and coffee. Mary Anne and George were very helpful and accommodating. Helping in anyway they could to make our stay more pleasant. Mary Anne even bought us a bottle of wine when I couldn't fine the store she was recommending.That's service!!!!!!Being Greek, the hospitality shown was far above our expectations!!!!!! Thanks for making a great experience even better!!!!Yasou
