So close yet so far….. Cape Sounio, Grecotel Exclusive Resort. So close to the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio that the Greek sea-god’s influence is felt throughout this luxury hotel near Athens. So close to Athens International Airport but so far from the stress and strain of everyday life. So near the Acropolis in Athens but so far from the city buzz. So near the Olympic Marina and not far from the idyllic islands in the Aegean Sea.
