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.

Bed linen and bath towels are provided. Private parking is available for free in the building’s parking lot, upon request. A spacious elevator serves the 4th and the 5th floor.
The roof top terrace with olive, orange and lemon trees offers a unique experience: an amazing view to the Acropolis, the Athens Observatory and the whole of Attica till the south sea coast and the opportunity to enjoy your breakfast with the bevy of chirping birds or your diner under the beautifully lighted Acropolis. The swimming pool is enjoyed throughout the year as it is heated and covered during the winter season. A unique feeling no other penthouse offers in Athens’ historic centre. The terrace and the swimming pool are shared with another, smaller, AURA apartment. 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.

Mooi appartement, alles is er, terrassen, uitzicht, locatie, comfort en ruimte! Gemakkelijk bereikbaar vanaf de binnenstad.
Appartement magnifique, tout y est, terrasses, vue, emplacement, confort et espace!facilement accessible du centre ville.
We verbleven in George's appartement tijdens de Kerst - Nieuwjaar pauze van vorig jaar (2011).
Het appartement is goed ingericht met alle moderne gemakken. Vanuit een locatie perspectief is, dicht bij een hoofdweg (zonder de congestie en het lawaai van elkaar zitten!); Goede verbindingen met het openbaar vervoer en vrij dicht bij enkele van de belangrijkste toeristische plekken in Athene.
Wat belangrijker is, is dat George is een heerlijk attente gastheer, die genoegen neemt in gastvrije mensen naar zijn appartement en zorgt ervoor dat een is gemaakt om er zeer comfortabel voelen.
Ik ben meer dan gelukkig om te adviseren George en zijn appartement aan al wie wil Athene bezoeken voor een week of zo. By the way, probeer het restaurant tegenover het appartement: het eten is heel mooi daar!
Stayed in George's apartment during the Christmas - New Year break of last year (2011).
The apartment is well-furnished with all modern conveniences. From a location perspective, it is close to a main thoroughfare (without having to face the congestion and noise of proximity!); well connected by public transport and quite close to some of the major tourist spots in Athens.
What is more important is that George is a wonderfully considerate host, who takes great pleasure in welcoming people to his apartment and ensures that one is made to feel very comfortable there.
I am more than happy to recommend George and his apartment to whosoever wishes to visit Athens for a week or so. By the way, try the restaurant just opposite the apartment: the food is quite nice there!
We hadden echt een leuke tijd in George's appartement. De plaats was volledig uitgerust, mooi en zeer mooi ingericht! Het gebied was ook erg mooi en rustig en relatief dicht bij het centrum van Athene. Ik zou zeker George's plaats aanraden aan alle reizigers.
We had a really nice time in George's apartment. The place was fully equipped, beautiful and very nicely decorated!! The area also was very nice and peaceful and relatively close to the center of Athens. I would definitely recommend George's place to all travelers.
Awesome! Zeer aangenaam verblijf in het appartement van George, geweldige locatie en zeer goed uitgerust. George was geweldig met ons, nam de tijd om te leren kennen en uit te wisselen ... Super!
Wij adviseren om het te huren, zal je blij zijn als ons!
Génial ! Séjour très agréable dans l'appartement de George, très bien situé et très bien équipé. George a été formidable avec nous, a pris du temps pour nous connaître et échanger... Super !
Nous recommandons de louer auprès de lui, vous serez enchantés comme nous !
Goed plat, maar probleem met de paiement. Ik betaalde 2 keer en worden nooit terugbetalen, ondanks wachten vier maanden! Ik denk niet aanraden deze plek.
Good flat but problem with the paiement. I paid 2 times and be never refund, despite waiting four few months!! I don't recommand this place.
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.
To make it simple: the house was a WRECK (broken chairs, 3 chairs for a house for 10, 1 bathroom instead of 2, dirty floors, dirty stuff in the cupboards, dirty plastic bottles near the pool, ... ). We called George to complain and to tell him that we would not stay in the house (we were with children), and managed to talk to him.
BUT, that was the only contact that we had: he did not return our following calls to discuss refund. We left him several messages but he did bot care. For me, he is a CROOK.
In the end we did not stay in the house, and got re-imbursed by Wimdu, after sending photos and explaining the situation, plus several calls and emails.
DO NOT RENT. DO NOT RENT. DO NOT RENT.
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.
Lovely apartment - couple of broken items which I am sure will have been dealt with by George's efficient team by the next stay. The location is too far from the metro for a comfortable walk in 37+ heat! Easy walk beside the block through a wee park to the main road and immediate access to taxis. We paid around €6 to the centre of Athens and with 3 of us that was fine. The bus stops there too. Shame the satellite dish blocks the view of the Acropolis from the balcony - lovely view from the bedroom window! We sat out a couple of times but it was so hot we were thankful for the air conditioning inside. All in all a good flat in a quiet location. Transfers were easy to arrange with George's drivers and I would recommend the apartment as a good choice for anyone who doesn't want to stay in the city centre which can be noisy and very busy.
I would definately recommed the Apartment to everyone. It is fully renovated and modern decorated. George was a perfect Host and always very helpful.
The location is unbeatable for sure. Great Areas like Plaka, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Kolonaki are all within walking distance, from 1 minute away to a maximum of 15 minutes.
Athens in general is allways worth it to go there.
Thanks George. See you next time in Athens.
