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.
6.5% VAT is already included in the price.
Airport transport or any other transport is available upon demand at an additional but very reasοnable cost.

Very well equiped, with everything you need to cook and spend a few days. Very nice place!
In July 2015 we - 6 happy Danes - spent a wonderful week in this luxury Apartment beautiful placed on top of a steep Road providing us with the most fantastic view over all of Athens - including Acropolis! The Apartment contents everything you need for a nice stay abroad - well equipped kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwaven and washingmachine - all new and in a good condition. The Apartment was light and spacy and very clean and - most important - very well airconditioned! We were treated most kindly by the elderly woman living in the ground flat and the very sweet woman living on first floor. The area is very cosy with a lot of small - but all very steep roads. During the day there's some traffic in the area, but things settle down during the evening and night - and nobody was kept awake due to noisy traffic. The nearest metro stations is Dimitrios and Dafni both 1.2km from the flat - about 20 minutes walk. It is convinient and easy to go by metro - even all the way to the AirPort. From Dafni station its easy to get a taxi to the flat for the most fair Price of around 3 Euros. We will highly recommend the Apartment .... And wonderful Athens!
Very nice appartment exactly meeting our expectations. Site's description is perfect and Georges's support was indeed very nice and professional. Taxi driver was waiting for us with our name at the airport as expected.
We finally found the shortest way to walk to the tram which is about 15mn away from the appartment and very convinient when you want to visit Athenes and when it is around 35 to 38° outside! We do not mind walking a lot but frankly speaking taking the tram is very helpful.... we even took it to the beach and our recommandation is really to go at the very end of the tram and even take the bus (144) which drives you to very nice beaches... and even a very nice salty lake wher you can experience fishes eating your dead skins everywhere....
The only little thing to be mentioned is that we could run the washing machine while we were using the air conditioning.... but other than that, the appartment is really to be recommended!
I enjoyed the apartment very much. It is very comfortable and really well placed... and I must say (visiting much places here) that in my opinion this district is the most beautiful part of Athens. it is clean... it is green..... interesting coast - many different beaches from wide sand ones to even quite wild with rocks wonderful for snorkeling especially... quite close to Acropolis, Placa .... quite close to Piraeus (possibility of visiting some islands ) a lot of well equipped shops around... good communication... just everything perfect.
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!
Very nice apartment close to all services : bakery, restaurants, pubs, and the beaches of course. You can easily walk to Lake Vouliagmeni (less than 10 minutes walk). Well equipped apartment with a pretty patio as shown on profile pictures.
Great appartment with a fantastic wiev over Athens.
We really enjoyed our stay
We spent days in the vintage apartment and i fully recommend it to everyone. The apartment is well equipted. It is located outside but with public transport easy to go everywhere.
We had wonderful 5 days there! :)
I had never thought about the possibility of being able to book an apartment when traveling.
The network is Widmu I seemed rich and well articulated on Athens where we traveled for a stay June 21 to 26 ..
The apartment has lived up to our expectations and also reception services, check-out were good.
I think I will repeat the experience in other occasions
Non avevo mai pensato alla possibilità di poter prenotare un appartamento quando si viaggia.
La rete di Widmu mi é sembrata ricca e ben articolata su Atene dove abbiamo viaggiato per un soggiorno dal 21 al 26 giugno..
L'appartamento si è rivelato all'altezza delle nostre aspettative e anche i servizi di accoglienza, check-out sono stati buoni.
Penso che ripeteró l'esperienza in altre occasioni
The apartment was at the center of Athen. It was beautiful and it had everything what we needed for this trip. The coordination with George was funtastic. I will recommand it for sure !!!! :)
