Situated in the heart of the Overberg town of Caledon, a one-hour drive from Cape Town, is the beautiful Athenian Villa Bed ‘n Breakfast. The building is the historic Good Hope Building, dating from 1929 and the theme is drawn from the Greek Isles. Our hosts, Peter and Carol welcome you in true Greek style. Set in a side lane, off the main road, one can lose sight of the little town of Caledon and imagine oneself in Mykonos or Santorini, the setting is so authentic.
Six individually decorated and cosy Double Rooms are available, all located on the first floor surrounding the courtyard. Each room sleeps two and offers either a double bed or two single beds. The comfortable atmosphere ensures guests are made to feel at home. Each room has an in-room shower and a private rest room.
A homemade English breakfast is served in the dining area, or in the courtyard on sunny days. The cobblestone courtyard is an extension of the Greek theme with overgrown plants and flowers. A splash pool and pizza oven are ‘part and parcel’ of the courtyard and available for guests’ use. Guests are encouraged to braai/barbecue in the courtyard whenever they wish and make the courtyard their own space.
The fireplace in the lounge has a knack for attracting guests on winter days. The balcony is a great reading spot or hideaway where you can watch the town’s activities.
Athenian Villa is set in a side lane off the main road to ensure a peaceful environment while still being in the centre of it all.
Please Note: Athenian Villa has a flight of stairs leading to the rooms.
