Grecotel Cape Sounio Boutique Resort 

A chic resort on the Athenian Riviera

A smattering of low-slung villas and bungalows with rustic-chic interiors, the Grecotel’s design is a nod to the Sounio landscape.

As you head out of Athens to Sounio, the city streets begin to melt into beachfront promenades. Keep following the curve of the Saronic Gulf and you’ll reach Cape Sounio, a dreamy sliver of beaches and pretty bays at the southern-most tip of Attica. Here, you’ll find the secluded Grecotel Cape Sounio – a shiny newcomer on the hotel scene. Behind its grand colonnaded façade, expect traditional Greek interiors shot through with a cool boutique vibe.

Why we love Grecotel Cape Sounio Boutique Resort

  • The Athenian Riviera is the summer playground of in-the-know urbanites seeking a coastal getaway from the capital.
