Athena Collection
Our Story
Curated property management & travel experiences
The story of Athena
Laying the foundations
The first bricks of Athena Collection were laid alongside our sister company, Athena Advisers. Providing a high end, hand-in-hand buyer service, Athena was helping its clients turn into proud new homeowners. But for those with freshly cut keys in hand, a crucial, final step was missing - a property management company meeting their standards.

Athena Collection now offers the completion of a cycle of services, a bespoke home management solution in which a new home is a blank canvas for creativity and recently hinged doors can be opened for grateful guests.

To this day, we are fully integrated with the Athena Group to continue offering our clients a customised service from start to finish, though our client base has expanded beyond this original framework.

Our unique approach
We do not have a one-size-fits all, standardised approach, nor would we wish that our homeowners do either. Instead, we celebrate the individuality and personality which touches each aspect our of business, from customer service through to customised design.

Whether we watch your home being built from the ground, starting as swirls of dust and steel frames, or it comes to us as an already completed project, our understanding of the property development process means that when it comes time for rental, your home will already be like family.

And when it comes to finishing touches, we embrace interior design rebels with a spark in their eyes and magic in their touch. Elegant furnishings and welcoming warmth are at the heart of each of our homes but as for the rest, it's to each their own.

Beyond property, beyond borders
Our industry knowledge and adoration of exceptional guest experiences may begin with property management, but it extends as far as our guests' curiosity.

With many miles logged between the Athena Collection team - criss-crossing continents and sailing across the bluest of waters - we have collated our industry knowledge and bulging book of who-to-know in just the right areas.

With hand-picked destinations designed to delight accompanied by insider knowledge straight from the depths of the Amazon jungle or the rocky cliffs of the Greek coast, Athena Collection offers holistic travel experiences ranging from seaside villas to week-long wellness retreats.
