Overview

Athens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

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

Wonderful few days with the family in Athens. Walking distance to major attractions and restaurants/grocery stores. Hospitality of Marianne was outstanding and made to feel very welcome. Clean, easy access and generally perfect place to stay if you are thinking of a city break in Athens.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a four night stay in Athens with a 4 year old and we couldn't have had a better home base. We had the very clean apartment #6 with the view of the Acropolis, a semi-private outdoor patio, access to the shared and covered pool,a kitchen, washing machine, etc. The neighborhood is a perfect mix of quiet locals with the bars and restaurants very nearby. Acropolis is a five minute walk. The owner Marianne is sincerely helpful, friendly and available. She offers a printed guide to good restaurants, shopping, sites etc which was very helpful. Anybody would like this apartment, but a family with one or two kids would particularly appreciate it.

I'm not the kind to give 5 stars just because, this rating is deserved.

Fabulous location and lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a real gem. Ideally situated for a stroll to good cafes and restaurants and also walking distance from the Acropolis and the old parts of Athens. The pool is a lovely treat when it gets hot and the view from the apartment is a clear view of the Acropolis. The apartment is very well fitted out and we were very comfortable. George was very helpful indeed during the booking process and was very patient in answering all my questions! He was also able to arrange all our transfers which was brilliant. Mrs Marianne the owner met us on arrival and was a very gracious host. She also provided us with very useful local information and was easily contactable with any questions. All in all it was a brilliant apartment made very special by George and Mrs Marianne and their help.

Perfect Location to Explore Athens

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment based on its proximity to the Acropolis. What we got was so much more!

The apartment is in a quiet residential neighborhood off the beaten path, but still within walking distance to everything you want to do in Athens. It was a 5-minute walk down a cute little street to get to a selection of wonderful restaurants all with a view of the Acropolis. A 10-minute walk, and you are standing at the entrance to the Acropolis. It was a beautiful walk, as well.

The apartment itself was fantastic. Very clean and has everything you could need for enjoying your time. The large windows throughout gave an unimpeded view of the Acropolis and of the whole of Athens. The pool was great. Perfect for my kids because it is only 1.2m deep throughout.

As for the staff, they were both so accommodating and so friendly. Before our arrival, we dealt mainly with George. He is the manager and was great at answering any questions and always returned emails very quickly. We were met on our arrival to the apartment by the owner, Marianne. She is a lovely woman who is both extremely friendly and very willing to offer any suggestions she can about the area to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

Great place, Incredible view, Impeccable Service

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Kanellopoulos' listing at 40 Iraklidon Lane is amazing. The property was better than we had even hoped for (and we had high hopes!) It is a beautiful, two floor apartment with a great view. It was clean, well-kept and in a great location (go to the restaurant with the lamb chops nearby!!). Additionally, Mr. Kanellopoulos' services were impeccable. He arranged the entire thing, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off at the apartment. Furthermore, he was very easy to reach by email, and very accommodating. Overall, this was an incredible place to stay, and I would recommend it to anyone going to Athens.

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.
