Situated in the heart of the Overberg, Athenian Villa Guesthouse is a hidden gem behind the façade of a heritage building on the Main Road of Caledon.
In sharp contrast to its outer appearance, a beautiful courtyard immersed in greenery and bougainvillea bushes, and which boasts a small plunge pool, welcomes you to a taste of the Greek Islands. Painted stone pathways lead upstairs giving way to the authentic wooden flooring of the bedrooms and living areas, which are clean and comfortable.
Each bedroom is individually decorated with rugs, throws and artefacts of Greece and each has its own eclectic shower and toilet, although there are also communal facilities available. The beds offer crisp white linen and comfy duvets to ensure a good night’s sleep.
While its walk-in entrance is in a secret alleyway, Athenian Villa offers secure underground parking for guests accessible from the Main Road. Included in the price, clientele is invited to enjoy a full breakfast, either in the courtyard on sunny days, or in the cozy dining room in winter. Whilst not overly sophisticated, this 3-star guesthouse oozes charm and character.
