My fiance and I wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and decided to go to Caledon for a few days. Close to Greyton and Hermanus. What a pleasant visit. Shaun welcomed us and showed us the underground parking facilities for our car and then took us to our room. THAT bed. We felt like a king...

We often visit Athenian Villa when going through to Caledon/Hermanus area for weekends. Top quality service and excellent accommodation. Definitely over delivers on expectation. Wonderful breakfast and friendly accommodating staff. Definitely recommend.

We stayed over for a wedding nearby. Located in central Caledon - not very desirable area. Bedding clean. Room awkward - shower in room, toilet separate but not ventilated. Breakfast okay, service slow and waitress not attentive.

The place is comfortable for when you passing through, the Manager Shaun is very polite and makes his guests feel welcome, the breakfast is average, if situated in a better part of Caledon it would have been perfect.

A nice little gem in the heart of Caledon. Staff very friendly, including the B&B Manager(Sean Michael Ford). Room was very neat and clean. B&B was situated very close to the Caledon Spa, where we spent time as day visitors. The only thing that put a damper on things was that it rained very hard on our first night and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
