Villa Athena is a truly unique and special place where my husband and I got married! The villa itself has been designed by an artist and it shows in all of the beautiful details throughout. It is full of character and rustic charm and the photos don’t do justice to the enormity of the space inside. All of the rooms have individual themes and lots of the rooms have views out to the sea. The space within the villa is endless and can comfortably house large groups, with two kitchen areas and two lounge areas on separate floors which was ideal for us as we were accommodating two families for the wedding.
Peppy has been fantastic. Of course planning a wedding abroad has it’s challenges and while organising from the UK Peppy offered great support throughout. On the day of the wedding and the lead up she went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect and we cannot thank her enough!
The outside space is great and was perfect for our wedding setting. The garden area is huge and there are lots of different spaces to enjoy, from the BBQ and dining area in the garden, to the sunbathing space and an upstairs veranda with additional dining table. Although there is no pool the garden leads directly to the beach area which is great and very quiet and the sea is lovely to swim in. The location of the villa is also great, a ten minute drive from the town with lots of restaurants, shops etc. In summary the place is amazing and Peppy is a fantastic host, we will definitely be returning.
Our expectations have been fully satisfied - the villa has absolutely amazing architecture and awesome surroundings! Everyone can have her/his privacy, even the beach is kind of a "private" beach. One could not believe that this is just an hour and half (ferry incl.) away from Athens.
But above all, I would mention the owners - Maissa and Alex who are the main asset of that property. They have welcome us so cordially that the sense of being at home hasn't left us all the time. I believe, we have made friends out there - one more point to return at their villa!
