My thoughts about Athens for retirees:

What Athens could offer retirees over Asheville and Chattanooga -- possibly access to Atlanta airport (there are Athens/Atlanta shuttles), Atlanta for entertainment, any University of Georgia programs/facilities for retirees.

What Athens could offer retirees over metro Atlanta -- can get to a real downtown atmosphere (not just a suburban town center that you can now find in metro Atlanta) in under 15 minutes from most places in Athens/Clarke county. Plus Athens now has quite a bit of suburban amenities -- to include Trader Joe's, Dicks Sporting goods, Aldi, etc.
