Welcome to A.U.R.A. - Acropolis Unique Residence Apartments and A.U.R.A. Penthouse. A privately owned building with 4 apartments and the owner’s home, built in 2005 offers visitors a cordial atmosphere as well as full privacy. The building is continuously being improved at the owner’s attentiveness. Please note, that in case of no vacancy or a request for an even larger accommodation, visitors are kindly asked to visit the owner's newest apartment of equal comfort and two smaller ones, in the same building. See the listings: 1. https://www.flipkey.com/properties/9262043/ 2. https://www.flipkey.com/properties/9260493/ 3. https://www.flipkey.com/properties/9260510/ Thank you! Three major advantages: Visitors’ comments for this Penthouse all focus on: Quality accommodation, best possible location and a hospitable host/owner. Reading what follows explains why. Quality accommodation The Penthouse is situated on the 4th and 5th floor. A comfortable accommodation is guaranteed as the first level of 190 sq.m offers a bright and spacious living room and patio with a long dining table and a wonderful view to the Acropolis, as well as a large, convenient, fully equipped kitchen. The privacy that is sought among members of a large group is also guaranteed as at the same level there are three bedrooms (2 larger ones, 1 smaller one) and 3 bathrooms while at the second level (95 sq.m) there is a large master bedroom and en suite bathroom with jacuzzi and shower as well as two spacious walking closets, plus a spacious open space area; this works nicely either as a lounge area to the master or as a sleeping area (5th bedroom) rather flexible in terms of beddings (1-4 persons), depending on the needs. Access to the roof top terrace and pool, is through the second level. From the terrace the views to the Acropolis, the National Observatory, the Lycabettus Hill, a vast part of the city of Athens and the Saronic Gulf are spectacular. They are complemented by the beauty of the olive, orange and lemon trees and the bevy of chirping birds that have turned the terrace into their little oasis as well as visitors’ having a hard time to believe they are in the city centre and at a short walking distance from all major attractions, shops and the neighborhood’s cafes, bars and restaurants. The swimming pool feels like private as it is only shared with a select few guests from two more apartments. It is enjoyed throughout the year as it is heated and covered during the winter season. A unique add-on no other property offers in the historical center of Athens. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 00000465033More

About the neighbourhood
Location: is probably the best in Athens. The neighborhood is Thission, a residential area, the most appealing of all for visitors as much as for Athenians, in the heart of the historical centre. It combines the characteristics of the mid19th century through the neoclassical residencies which are being continuously preserved, with the proximity to the most important archaeological sites through lovely pedestrian streets and some of the most beautiful walks in any European capital, as well as the ultra-hip surrounding areas to eat, shop and walk around.
Getting around
A large choice of cafes, traditional taverns and restaurants as well as local shops offer visitors the option to spend time in the neighborhood if they please and acquire the inside knowledge of Athens! The apartment’s location is real close to the major attractions but outside the touristy mass or city noise so even the owner is still often taken by surprise from the calm it offers.
