Location. Location. Location. Where else can one open patio doors that lead out to a terrace overlooking a Greek Temple? Villa Athena is very much at home in the Valley of the Temples, literally sitting next to the Temple Complex. There are lush gardens and a swimming pool, and terraces where one can enjoy an aperitif or dinner, with a wonderful view of the Concordia Temple.
Staying at the Villa Athena is a splurge that will pay for itself in many ways, most of all the memories of seeing the Temple in the fading light of day, and then again in the early morning.
