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.

Reviews of this property
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!
Ideale locatie als je met een groep vrienden Athene wil bezoeken. Perfect gelegen, zeer groot penthouse van alle gemakken voorzien. Prima contact met de host. En ook een goeie service voor eventueel vervoer van en naar het vliegveld. Een meer dan prima verblijf hief gehad met 9 personen!!
Reviews for this host's other properties
we had a plaesant stay at George´s Apartment in Piraeus. The Apartment is perfectyl located in the centre of Piraeus
The apartment we stayed was clean and very spacious. We also asked for an airport transfer and it was made in quite reasonable price with no problems. Contact we Mr George is ok but I would really appreciate bigger support before we made a decision and chose his apartment.
If I can make any clues for your stay in Athens - book an apartment nearby the sea and don't worry about transport time or cost to city center ;)
the apartment is very good and clean, near the center. But we had a chick in delay of 2 hours (14:00 instead 12:00). In general, we are satisfied.
We have had a wonderful Holiday in House Roustika. A fantastic beutifull House! Everything was perfect and we were meat with great kindfullnes and hospitality from our contact person: Eleni and the People, that lived in the Village! We can warm recommend House Roustika for everyone.
Amazing clean and cozy apartment with everything you need. great and save area, we really enjoyed the stay and can warmly recommend George as a host ;-))

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.
In the end we did not stay in the house.
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.
