Athenian Villa

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. Owners 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.

The Bed & Breakfast is situated in Caledon in the Overberg region of the Western Cape. The owners welcome you to their beautiful property reminiscent of Greek Islands like Santorni and Mykonos.

The building itself has a grand history, being one of the first in the town of Caledon and the façade, which is a national monument, overlooks Donkin Street. The “Good Hope” building was built in 1929 and housed the “Good Hope Café” & the “Good Hope Theatre”. Today it is classified as a historical monument.

Athenian Villa has 8 guest rooms with toilet and shower facilities and each is individually decorated and has television with DSTV, wall heaters and fans. It has a very warm "home-away-from-home" atmosphere, thanks to Peter and Carol who run it hands on. They go out of their way to make sure every guest has an unforgettable stay.
