We stayed here in May of 2013 and had a fantastic experience with this establishment. We took my parents here to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary and it could not have been a better experience. First of all the hotel manager and front desk staff must be commended on their hospitality and professionalism. We called in advance of our arrival... More

Upon arrival we were greeted with smiles and we felt at home right away. Our room was fantastic, a shower with a view and a very comfortable bed with great linen. Breakfast was delightful, everything fresh and yummy. Five star hotel. Our only regret was our stay was too short!

Villa Athena has certainly a perfect setting, especially the rooms looking out onto the temple, the garden and the terrace. So, if you book here, go for the view. We had a junior suite, nicely sized if a little on the bare side - and no view at all. Bathroom up to standard. Two things we did not like: room... More

When we first considered traveling to Italy, we were concerned about driving in unknown territory, with limited Italian, in a place where drivers are known to be a bit, shall we say, aggressive. With little available public transportation, we looked into staying at a place which could help us with drivers. We were lucky to find Villa Athena. The staff... More

Let me start by saying that my wife, Laura, and I do not tour. We plan restful vacations a year of more in advance. We choose a central location for a base and then contract for private day trips from that location. Our focus is to relax, learn and participate in the real life of the area. Any review of... More

When we were first shown our room, I was delighted at the bright, clean light flooding the room in the brilliant Sicilian sunshine. And then we opened the patio doors and the view upward to the splendid Temple of Concordia was nothing short of breath taking. To be so close to such beauty and wonder exceeds all expectations. This hotel... More

We arrived after sunset at the hotel and were greeted with an amazing view from the hotel grounds of the Greek temples lit on the hillside. The hotel was excellent in every aspect - service, cleanliness of rooms, food. The grounds include a patio area for lunch, pool and fruit tree garden. This is the perfect place to stay in... More
