Greece's luxury Astir Palace hotel, located south of Athens, will be turned into a Four Seasons hotel when it opens its doors again in 2018, the two companies said Wednesday.

It will be the first Four Season's Hotels and Resorts opened by the Canada based company in Greece after a 100 million euro upgrade of the Astir Palace currently in progress.
