Everyone knows about MykonosandSantorini, and those islands have the crowds to show for it. Which is why there’s a compelling argument to be made for going rogue and visiting thelesser-known Greek islands and their Villas instead.
Villa Jasmine on the island of Paros offers traditional Greek design with entirely modern amenities. It overlooks a nature preserve on the island’s south coast. One of the larger islands in the Aegean, Paros offers a wide range of activities, including gourmet restaurants, wineries and quiet traditional villages with delicious seaside fish tavernas.
The recently renovated Villa Melissa on the island of Antiparos can accommodate up to 21 people. It places a premium on outdoor space, with a 55-foot-long infinity pool and its own semi-private beach. Antiparos charms with whitewashed houses and picturesque pedestrian streets.
The 9-bedroom castle-like Villa Rakelle on Spetses features a mix of modern furniture and historic artifacts. The estate takes up the top of an entire peninsula overlooking Zogeria beach. Also known as the Hamptons of Greece, Spetses attracts guests with well-preserved neoclassical architecture and pine tree-dotted beaches.
Porto Heli is also known as the Greek Riviera. The island’s six-bedroom Villa Roellia has a private forest area and multiple pools. Porto Heli has long been home to the Athenian aristocracy and shipping heirs who discreetly nest their summer homes along what’s often called the Greek Riviera.
The more intimate Villa Margot on Tinos can accommodate up to eight guests in four bedrooms. Its white, modern interiors represent characteristically Cycladic design. Tinos is full of cobblestoned villages, pristine beaches with crystal-clear water and top-notch local cuisine.
