Whether its Santorini’s black sands and whitewashed cityscape you’re dreaming about, Mykonos’ rugged landscape or Corfu’s undulating countryside, Greece is home to whatever you’re after. It’s no wonder that the islands have long established themselves as a summer destination for Britain’s heliophiles, but with a boom of luxury villas available to own, we’re thinking about turning our Grecian fling into a life-long romance.

     

1. Beachfront Villa, Messinia

Beachfront Villa, night time

Part of the illustrious Navarino Residences, this aptly named beachfront villa is situated in the Sea Dunes Neighbourhood (which is as dreamy as it sounds). Surrounded by reflecting pools and glorious gardens, the villa itself is an extension of its spectacular surroundings with a generous helping of natural materials like stone and wood. Spanning 130 hectares, with a brilliant golf course, unparalleled views and uber deluxe finishings, Navarno Residences definitely isn’t your average residential complex. Available from Savills, POA

2. Agari, Mykonos

Agari, Mykonos

A little different from the polished whitewashed domes of Santorini, Mykonos offers a more rugged (but no less incredible) taste of Greece, and this unique property on the Cyclades islands is the perfect spot to experience it. Perched on the crest of a hill, the 600sqm villa features a design that allows each and every room to enjoy the same exceptional views of the Agari Beach and out towards the Aegean Sea. Inside you’ll find a superb attention to detail and outside an area built with entertaining in mind; terraces surround the house and a swimming pool overlooks the cliffs, while a secluded private lighted pathway leads from poolside to a patio carved out of the natural rocks. Available through Savills for €3.85m

3. Seascape, Skiathos

Seascape, Sotheby's

Sitting between the popular beaches of Koukounaries and Banana, Seascape is perfectly situated for beach days out – although with a glorious infinity pool, splendid views and ultimate privacy we wouldn’t blame you for never leaving the property itself. Floor to ceiling windows bathe the interiors with warm light and besides being uber luxe, the architecture is also environmentally friendly. Available through Greece Sotheby’s International Realty for €2.85m

4. Mystique, Lefkada

Available at a guide price of 7,200,000 EUR through Greece Sotheby’s International Realty (4)

Ringed by quintessentially Greek clear, turquoise waters (and a sprinkling of hidden coves and beaches), this gorgeous new house is already one of the most covetable. The villa itself is afforded privacy by the surrounding olive and Cypress trees, accessed via a charming little pathway. Double height ceilings and large windows in the sitting room provide an airy atmosphere, splendid views and extensive light. Other offerings include a fully kitted out gym, infinity pool, pool pergola, two outdoor eating areas, private pontoon, direct beach access and water sports including wake boarding, kayaking and snorkelling – to name a few. Available through Greece Sotheby’s International Realty for €7.2m 

5. One&Only, Kea Island

One&Only, Kea_ Dolphin Capital

Kingfisher blue waters and splendid shores, it’s no wonder that Greece attracts hordes of people every year but if it’s privacy you’re after, you don’t have to look far. The undiscovered island of Kea – the closest of the Cycladic islands to mainland Greece – will soon be home to One&Only, a 65-hectare resort home to an enviable collection of private homes. Secluded alcoves, lush forests, olive groves and pristine golden sands, Kea is an untouched haven amidst the Aegean Sea so needless to say these are going to be snapped up quickly. The resort is set for completion in 2020; available through One&Only Resorts; price TBC

     

6. San Marco Estate, Corfu

San Marco Estate

For those who like their Grecian life more rustic than whitewashed, this elegant Manor House nestled in the hill side of northern Corfu is a perfect option. San Marco Estate is utterly charming, a beautiful yet comfortable temporary home ideal for any Greece escapade. Indoors is a stylish but liveable space and outside (besides the wonderful views) you’ll find a separate guest cottage, a variety of sun and shade terrace including a pool-side pavilion for al fresco dining on warm nights. A local concierge is on-hand with local tips and insider secrets while the cook supplies delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners six days per week. Available to rent through Red Savannah from £9,219 per week

7. Treasure Island, Peloponnese

Treasure-Island-Mainland-Olivers-Travels

Set on its own charming private islet in the Cyclades and sleeping 20, this Treasure Island villa is ideal for large family/friend gatherings. Sprawling an impressive 900 acres, you’ll be swept away by the romance of this neoclassical beachside Manson. Designed with spacious whitewashed rooms, high ceilings and a detail oriented eye manifesting in enchanting mosaic tiling, marble en-suite bathrooms, original cast iron bathtubs and a large Cycladic wood-burning fireplace. When you’re not tanning on the beach or sipping on a drink poolside, activities like scuba-diving, sailing and snorkelling are on the agenda. Available to rent through Oliver’s Travels from £18,216 per week (based on a 14 person occupancy)

8. Orchard Cottages, Kefalonia

Orchard Cottages

Burrowed in a quiet hamlet in the North of Kefalonia, Orchard Cottages enjoys ultimate seclusion but with the village of Antipata only a 10-minute walk away, cute boutiques and delicious dining are never far. Delightfully cosy in the best way, the cottage comprises an open plan kitchen and living area with two stone day beds and one double bedroom – the ideal home for two. Opening out to a swimming pool and terraced gardens lush with olive, fruit and nut trees as well as a shaded terrace, the home is well equipped as well as being simply charming. Available through Aylesford International for €295,000

9. Mandalay, Hydra

CIRE_Mandalay_Hydra (1)

Quite possibly the most beautiful Grecian home on the market, this distinguished 18th century stone mansion is simply breathtaking. Traditional carved wooden ceilings, seven glorious fireplaces, original all-black marble floors, crystal chandeliers and French doors are only a few distinctive features you’ll find at this fairytale villa. We’re hard pressed to choose a favourite feature, but the master bathroom is certainly a front-runner with a high dome and antique marble bathtub at its centre. Situated in a Mediterranean paradise, it’s cypress and olive trees stretch as far as you can see with a stone-paved path leading to a private terrace (complete with black and white flooring) and a pergola with grapevines and fragrant jasmine providing the perfect backdrop for luxurious al fresco dining. Available through Christie’s International Real Estate for €4.2m
