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.
Caledon is known as the 'Capital of the Overberg'. Even though to some it is a simply another town along the N2, it does lend itself to some extraordinary history. Lying a mere 120 km from Cape Town heading towards George, it owes its origin to the hot water springs on the slopes of the Klein Swartberg.
The building itself has a grand history, being one of the first in the town of Caledon and the façade, which is a national monument, overlooks Donkin Street. The “Good Hope” building was built in 1929 and housed the “Good Hope Café” & the “Good Hope Theatre”. Today it is classified as a historical monument.
This Villa has 8 guest rooms with toilet and shower facilities and each is individually decorated and has television with DSTV, wall heaters and fans. It has a very warm "home-away-from-home" atmosphere, thanks to Peter and Carol who run it hands on. They go out of their way to make sure every guest has an unforgettable stay.
