A Penthouse in Athens / Heated Pool-Acropolis View
Welcome to AURA - Acropolis Unique Residence Apartments / Penthouse
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. 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. There are 4 bathrooms and a Jacuzzi bathtub in the main bathroom which is located in the master bedroom.

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.

We stayed at the Penthouse this March with 10 Friends. The accommodation is perfect; it is clean, specious and luxurious. The large living area and kitchen offer enough space to hang around and the view from the Living room and Rooftop terrace is stunning. Not to mention how awesome the heated pool is!
The host is very friendly and gives you all the needed tips to make your Athens trip even better. Lots of restaurants and sight seeing within walking distance and when feeling lazy; the taxi's are cheap too. We had a perfect weekend and would definitely recommend this accommodation to any group of people looking for a perfect Athens experience!
