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, it is at the same time a custodian of the classical traces that may be discovered almost everywhere, like in some treasure trove.
Situated 200 meters 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 for over 2,500 years in the presence of the gods. Here is possible to find a Sicily dating back millennia.
The hotel’s recent restoration has renovated every environment, including the rooms and the suites, which have a view of the temples and/or of the park of age-old olive trees. The atmosphere that recalls the noble tradition of this house pervades everywhere. Everything is original with refined furniture and an impeccable service, enriched by a warm and friendly welcome, which is typically Sicilian.
