Situated 200 metres away from the Temple of Concordia, a true masterpiece of Doric art dating back to the 5th century B.C., Villa Athena is a place which transcends time and space, where nature art and beauty have been merging together for over 2,500 years in the presence of the gods. Villa Athena is the only 5-star hotel situated within the Archaeological Park of the Valley of the Temples, which UNESCO has declared a World Heritage Site, with an exclusive direct entrance. A magnificent residence of the end of the 18th century, the villa has 27 between suites and rooms, many of which have view on the Temples or on the garden with ancient olives trees. The garden of the villa blends into the landscape of almond and olive trees that surrounds the magnificent millennia-old temples; from here the Temples of Concordia and Juno can be seen on the Terrazza degli Dei, the restaurant of the hotel. The terrace is open every day, both for lunch and dinner. To complete the beauty of the villa, the hotel has a panoramic outdoor swimming pool, a charming garden bar Federico II, a refined SPA with a wellness area and two cabins for massages and a fitness center. The hotel has free WI-FI and free parking for all the guests.

Clearly one of the highlights of our trip. The grounds are lovely with a view of the temples. We had a room in each category offered and all were very well appointed with views or patios. The restaurant serves delicious food and local wines and breakfast in the spa area is a lovely way to start one’s day. But more importantly is the welcoming and friendly staff. They are what make Villa Athena so special. I hope to return. The McGee Family Los Angeles

Hotel's Favorite
Exclusive luxury hotel with a private entrance to the temples. They have only a couple of dozen rooms and suites, and a lot of staff that provide very personal service to the guests. (There were possibly as many staff as guests.) I had the Deluxe room, which didn't quite have a clear view of the temples, but that wasn't an issue because I didn't spend much time in the room. The temples are right in front of the property and you have an amazing direct view from the restaurant, as well as a private entrance to the sites. The location is amazing and the staff did an excellent job in providing a luxury experience.

Very prompt service (especially for Italy!), the food caters to our family’s needs, most things are cooked or prepared to order, the staff is very friendly. The breakfast selection is very good and I love that it’s not buffet style, you order from the menu.

This place is spectacular. Beautiful surroundings with kind and helpful staff. The location is excellent. It was very easy to visit the Temple valley from the hotel via their private entrance. A much better choice than staying somewhere else and using the other, difficult to reach entrance. The room was nice-looking, elegant and quite spacious. The view to the city of Agrigento was beautiful (you can also book a room with a temple view). We also loved the pool area with a temple view. The garden was beautifully lit at night. The food and service at the hotel restaurant were good. We can't think of anything we hadn't liked.

Beautiful resort right by the Valley of Temples. There is a private access to the park from the hotel parking. Visited the park twice and the eventing walk is most beautiful with lights on the temples. The resort has a nice restaurant offering delicious foods with some fusion twisting. One of the best places to visit in Sicily.
