Athens may be renowned for its bevy of ancient sites, but look a little closer, and you’ll discover the Greek capital embodies a deeply romantic streak. Since the early ’60s, famous couples like Aristotle Onassis and Jackie Kennedy have flocked to the Astir Peninsula where our Hotel is located. Bring your beloved to our modern-day icon nestled among the pines to connect over local comely beaches, seafront cafés, wineries and laid-back islands, making for a getaway for two like no other.
Just the Two of You
- Tour Athens’ City Centre
Once you’re ensconced within the resort’s lush surrounds with views of the sparkling Saronic Gulf, you would never guess that lively city centre is just a 30-minute drive away. Let our Concierge arrange customized experiences such as a meze-sampling walk, a Greek cooking lesson and a bohemian-inspired neighbourhood tour to get a true taste of the city.
- Acropolis Now and Forever
Reserve an afternoon for a stroll around the well-preserved monuments atop the Acropolis, the ancient citadel that towers above a sprawling metropolis. Take your time to absorb the deceptively simple architectural lines of the fifth-century BC Parthenon temple, whose precise engineering continues to confound experts.
- Snuggle Up in the Spa
Book a quintessentially Greek spa treatment for two such as the Thalpori Couples Ritual at our sea-facing Spa. Relax with an invigorating fig scrub, followed by a soothing massage with pure sweet almond oil and the application of warm pouches, known as pindas, filled with locally harvested eucalyptus, rosemary and mint.
- A Surprise Sunset Dinner
Make the most of the resort’s secluded, west-facing beachside location by arranging a bespoke private dinner for two in a cabana right on the sand, and enjoy the freshest fish, vegetables and cheeses sourced and prepared by Executive Chef Bertrand Valegeas.More About Private Dining
- Cruise to a Saronic Island
Charter a motor yacht that departs from the Hotel jetty or from nearby Astir Marina, and head to one of the nearby islands for a day exploring hidden beaches and towns dotted with faded neoclassical mansions. Ask your skipper to recommend an authentic fish taverna or to prearrange a Four Seasons picnic lunch you can tuck into onboard.
- Taste New Generation Greek Wine
Book a private wine-tasting tour to sample crisp whites made with the indigenous Savatiano grape and visit ancient sites such as the Vravrona, an archaeological site whose fifth-century BC temple is dedicated to the goddess Artemis. Arrange for a sommelier to take you on a flight of wines from Attica or other key wine-growing regions in Greece.
