The Season to Fall for these Amazing Athens Break Getaways

The Season to Fall for these Amazing Athens Break Getaways

While temperatures quickly drop in the UK, Athens and its stunning surrounding areas still enjoy beautiful weather and a wonderful atmosphere. Take a look at 3 of the best city break getaways for culture, natural beauty and one-of-a-kind luxury living!

Autumn in the Athenian Riviera - Cape Sounio

Can’t decide between city and coastal life? At Cape Sounio, Grecotel Exclusive Resort, in the Athenian Riviera, you have the best of both. Just 10 miles of Athens, bustling city life turns into scenic palm-lined beaches and oceanfront promenades.

Terracotta-coloured bungalows blend into the beautiful landscape in an amphitheatrical arrangement. Families can enjoy dedicated family suites or villas with private pool, whilst romantic couples will love the Honeymoon Sea View Suite with private pool.

Aside from two secluded crescent beaches and a seawater pool with whirlpool facing the Temple of Poseidon, a world of luxury living awaits. Relish in the open-air spa set in 5000 m2 of landscaped greenery and 5 fine restaurants each with its own international or Greek cuisine.

Big news this Autumn is that Cape Sounio celebrated on October the 3rd Mary Katrantzou’s groundbreaking fashion show in celebration of the ELPIDA charity’s 30 years! She was the first designer to stage a show at the Temple of Poseidon on 3 October! All ticket sales and charitable donations went towards ELPIDA and Cape Sounio was honoured to have hosted pre-show cocktails.

Rates from € 210 per room per night in a Superior Bungalow Mountain View including American Buffet Breakfast.

Palatial Fall in Athens - Pallas Athena

A short stroll from the scenic area of Plaka and renowned Acropolis, Pallas Athena, Grecotel Boutique Hotel, is in an Athens’ hotspot. The beautiful and intimate art boutique hotel is the place for luxurious downtown living.

With eclectic art and wall paintings, a stay at Pallas Athena is like owning a private gallery for a few days. Choose from a modern and ultra-luxurious Prestige Pallace Suite to a Comic Art Suite or an original “Octopussy” Art Chic Suite, while the hotel’s collection of family rooms will be a real thrill for your little ones. Family Graffiti Guestrooms showcase original Wall Artwork by important street artists and each one is absolutely unique.

Work up a sweat in the fitness room, marvel at impressive art pieces at every turn then savour the flavours of Greek and Mediterranean gourmet dishes, prepared with fresh products from Grecotel’s AgrecoFarms. The restaurant's veranda is a great spot to take in the hustle and bustle of Kotzia Square.

Rates from € 139 per room per night in a Superior Guestroom including American Buffet Breakfast.
