A historic villa in Agrigento with wonderful views of the Temple of Concordia

Hotel Villa Athena has an astounding position within a stone’s throw of the magnificent Temple of Concordia, part of the Unesco World Heritage Site of the Valley of Temples, just outside Agrigento. The hotel is a handsome 300-year-old villa set in pretty landscaped gardens with a restaurant, bar, outside pool, spa and wellness centre, vegetable garden and amazing views of the temple. 

Recently extended in sympathy with the original building, Hotel Villa Athena offers a delightful collection of rooms and suites tastefully decorated in designer fabrics and furnishings. Some rooms even have spa facilities.

Rise early and take advantage of Hotel Villa Athena's location by walking to the archaeological site of the temples before the crowds visit. Later, sit in the garden with a cold glass of limoncello amid the lemon trees and view the temple on the hill. Following dinner in the restaurant, look at the temple yet again, illuminated in the night sky, from the balcony in your room.
