On a pine-studded peninsula on the Athenian riviera, Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens is offering a festive escape just south of the bustling city. This season, the luxury resort in Vouliagmeni will be transformed into a silvery white ”winter palace” by the water, where a program of events will spread joy over the Christmas and New Year holidays.
At the resort’s restaurants, four calling birds told us that the renowned chefs have already planned their special menus. Elevated takes on seasonal classics at Italian trattoria Mercato will warm your heart, while at critically acclaimed Pelagos, inventive and luxurious delicacies will satisfy the holiday cravings of even the most demanding gourmand.
For some last-minute gift shopping, a special pop-up store in the Nafsika lobby is offering signature home items and a mouthwatering selection of deli products by Pelagos restaurant. Alternatively, a Four Seasons Gift Card, which your loved ones can use to enjoy a tasting menu or perhaps a pampering spa treatment, is a gift that is guaranteed to delight. The spa’s special holiday wellness experiences, in particular, are the perfect way to relax and get into the festive spirit.
Meanwhile, kids will be royally entertained at the hotel’s Kids Club where an array of holiday-inspired activities will include storytelling afternoons and a festive treasure hunt.
