1. Oscar

Oscar, located in Aleomandra, is one of the finest villas in Greece, with a private pool near the beach. It provides breathtaking panoramic sea views as well as first-rate ambiance. The grey-blue wooden furnishings are exquisite. You can visit this villa by choosing our Greece honeymoon packages from India at Pickyourtrail website. 

The sophisticatedly designed outdoor living areas awash in the breathtaking gardens add to its allure. It is one of the best Greek Island villas, and it also has a grand living room with a great gaming atmosphere and a perfect place to watch movies in a 5.1 Dolby home cinema system.

2. Syros Cmn

Syros, the laid-back, sun-drenched Aegean island, was once a serious maritime kingpin, and this villa is a relic from that prosperous era. The 10-person CMN, designed as a merchant’s mansion, has its own dock that peeks over the inky-blue sea, leading to a private deck that appears to float out over the water. The old merchant’s house has been completely renovated on the inside, with glossy hardwood floors and eclectic art on the walls. And the majority of the windows have a view of the sea, looking out over the bustling harbour and towards the public lido.

3. House on the Rocks, Kaminaki

Swim in the crescent-shaped infinity pool of this stone-built villa or sip cocktails on the large roof terrace to take in the stunning views of the Albanian coastline. This three-bedroom property is set among olive trees on a promontory below the coast road and is only 400m from the beach. Explore the secluded bays of the north-east coast by renting a motorboat.

4. Symi

Small and well-established Symi, a tiny, peaceful island in the Dodecanese island chain off the Turkish coast, is featured in Travel à la Carte. They have a wide range of Ionian Islands. The aptly named, design-led Architect’s House (sleeps two–four) on big, rugged Kefalonia is its lead property – just south of yachtie haven Fiskárdo – with both a pool and pebble-beach access. Villa Evanthia (sleeps six) is nearby and has even better views north to Itháki and Lefkáda.

5. Sto Roloï, Póros

Seven hideaways in restored old houses are located near the summit of Póros Town and its iconic clock tower. Sto Rolo’s Garden Apartment sleeps two adults and two children, while the upstairs Terrace Apartment sleeps five and has sweeping views of the narrow channel and the ships that are constantly to-ing and fro-ing. The self-contained garden studio is ideal for couples. The highest Limeri villa has a main house (sleeps four) with a fireplace and a detached studio, as well as a shared pool. Lower down, “Anemone” consists of a main house for four people with a small private pool and the two-story Little Tower for three people. The decor features soothing pastel hues and soft fabrics, gravures on the walls, and antique furniture; some units have Jacuzzi tubs.

6. Mólyvos Stone Houses, Lesbos

Seven stone-clad villas, some restored, some new-built, most with breathtaking views from the village’s upper slopes. Families will find them appealing because many of them sleep up to six people and have fully functional kitchens, including dishwashers. The most luxurious is the three-bedroom Molyvos Manor, which has a pool. All have superior appointments, such as solid wood doors/shutters, reproduction or genuine antique furniture, and high-quality bath and floor tiling. If Mólyvos isn’t for you, the same company has two beach houses in less-visited Skála Mystegnón, on Lesbos’ north-east coast facing Turkey.

7. Ionian Islands and the Sporades

Villas are ideal for smaller Ionian islands such as Pax, Meganissi, and Itháki, as well as the northern Sporades Alónissos and Skópelos, where hotels can be scarce or lack character. Local self-catering properties, on the other hand, have unbeatable locations, usually with private pools or short walks to the beach. The Villa Collection/Greek Island Club has a substantial property portfolio in this area. The tree-shaded Villa Eleni (sleeps six) on tiny Meganissi, the cliff-edge Villa Petra on Pax (sleeps six), and the three Lefki Villas on Itháki (capacity four), all with views of gios Ioánnis beach and Kefalonia.

8. Apokóronas Village Houses, Crete

Western Crete’s green, hilly Apokóronas region is conveniently close to Haniá airport and town. We particularly like Próvarma village and its Villa Aloni (for up to five people, with pool) in the hamlet of Máza. Many properties have Wi-Fi and are available beginning in late March, which is unusual for rural Greek villas. For those who prefer to make their own travel arrangements, Pure Crete offers both flight-inclusive and accommodation-only prices.

9. Infinity Villa

Mykonos conjures images of white Cycladic buildings, sandy beaches, glitzy nightlife, and a fashion-forward attitude. Infinity Villa, one of the island’s largest and most impressive properties, stands on a secluded hillside above Agari beach, looking down on the glistening Aegean and the island of Naxos rising into the skyline. It has a spacious open-plan living room and dining area with wooden floors, as well as six ensuite bedrooms, and was beautifully decorated by an Italian interior designer and furnished with antiques from Italy and France. A pergola-shaded terrace with a barbecue and a long dining table is located in the garden. A stone path leads from here to a stunning infinity pool surrounded by massive rocks and cacti.

10. Kriezis Mansion, Hydra

The tiny island of Hydra, much loved by escapists – Leonard Cohen owns a house here – is romantic and peaceful, with donkeys serving as the only mode of transportation. Kriezis Mansion, located on a hillside a 20-minute walk from the port, is set in walled terraced gardens with palm trees and a pool, and has stunning views of the bay. It is an imposing 18th-century stone building that has been lovingly restored to incorporate existing architectural elements as well as modern conveniences. There are six double bedrooms, each with an ensuite marble bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room with a baby grand piano. A short walk takes you to Kamini beach, and a hike through the hills takes you to several enchanting Orthodox monasteries.

Exploring Greece while immersed in these tranquil villas is one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have. So, what are you holding out for? Get your backpacks or bags packed and prepare to be enthralled by Greece’s charisma; it’ll be a blast!
