Any of the Greek Islands make for prime real estate. These places are beautiful, idyllic, and the ultimate paradises in the Mediterranean. From the bustling Santorini to the more quiet Hydra, anyone can feel right at home on these islands. And it helps that we have some of our finest Greek luxury villas
located on some of them as well. Whether it's a honeymoon home in Crete or a lavish estate in Mykonos that's perfect for a family, these luxury rentals are worth checking out. Who knows? You might just fall in love with one of them and try to buy it for yourself!
Villa Dolce Vita in Mykonos
Let's start this list with the awe-inspiring Villa Dolce Vita on the beautiful island of Mykonos. One of the most famous Greek Islands
out there, its location alone already makes this villa pretty high in demand. But what will really inspire your awe is how remote it is. With practically nothing but sand dunes, hills, and the Aegean Sea surrounding it, it's as if Villa Dolce Vita is in the middle of nowhere. It's the ultimate secluded paradise, complete with a luxe bean-shaped pool defining high-class Mediterranean living. Truly La Dolce Vita!
Zapira Residence in Santorini
With so many exquisite luxury homes in Santorini, it's hard to pick just one! But after looking through each and every one of them, there's no denying that the Zapira Residence in Thera stands out in more ways than one. Firstly, despite the fact that it's located in the most central town of Santorini
, the area itself is rather remote. Not that it's in the middle of nowhere, but the distance between the Zapira Residence and everything else is big enough that you can enjoy such lots of peace and quiet. Secondly, the villa itself is a pretty modernized version of the iconic whitewashed house on the island. It's a great combo between contemporary luxury and the local provincial charm.
Beach Front Estate in Crete
Next to the likes of Santorini and Mykonos, it's safe to say that Crete is the next most famous Greek Island out there. Not only is it the biggest out of all the islands in Greece, but it's also the fifth-largest in the entire Mediterranean. Spending just one day in Crete
would be quite the trip! Especially if you get to live on this lavish Beach Front Estate. Offering up a largely minimal but modern and sophisticated space, this is luxury living in Crete at its finest. There's so much for you to rave over here: the infinity pool, the seaside views, the state-of-the-art kitchen, the well-equipped wine cabinet, or the sunset patio!
Amapola Villa Agapi in Corfu
More often than not, travelers go to Corfu just to party. This isn't to say that it's the only thing people do, but the nightlife scene here is so stellar that it has trumped practically everything else. Even a luxury apartment would do just fine if all you'll do here is go out at night. That's not necessarily a bad thing either. But then, you will miss out on some of the best luxury homes in Corfu
. Not the least of which is Amapola Villa Agapi, located in the Sivata region. Brimming with idyllic Mediterranean charms, it's the perfect vacation home on this island.
Maisonette Villa in Paros
People tend to overlook Paros a lot. Perhaps the most seasoned travelers know about it, but ordinary tourists, they're more distracted by the likes of Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, and more. Fortunately, this allows those who do know about and would travel to Paros to enjoy it even further. Take, for instance, this exquisite Maisonette Villa. With its countryside look and humble appeal, you'll truly get to enjoy the natural wonders of Paros here. You'd smell the salty sea breezes, feel the warmth of the bright sunshine, look at the lush greenery of the surrounding fields, and more.
Kastellakia Bay Villa in Kea
Kea is yet another island that doesn't get as much attention as the most famous destinations in Greece. And it's a shame too because it's home to plenty of gorgeous luxury villas. A great example is this Kastellakia Bay Villa. With five bedrooms on offer, it's the perfect vacation home for families enjoying their summer getaway in the Mediterranean. The villa itself looks pretty homely too. Idyllic in its rustic brick-bound design, the clean and minimal interior serves as a nice and comfy contrast. And that view? Even the most seasoned travel photographers would kill for such a view!
Villa Melodia in Kefalonia
Villa Melodia in Kefalonia also makes for a great family vacation home. In fact, even though there are many great places to eat in Kefalonia
, this one takes the cake. Imagine hosting a backyard barbecue here! You can grill all sorts of meat on the patio and prepare other dishes in the well-equipped kitchen. While the adults are doing that, the kids can spend their time running around the fairly big lawn or, of course, swimming in the private pool. And once the food is ready, everyone gathers in the shaded dining area to enjoy a feast while also looking at such spectacular views. What's not to love?
Amorous Villa in Delos
The Amorous Villa on Delos Island is a Mediterranean fantasy that has come to life! Covering an area of 250 square meters, the estate alone is pretty massive. No wonder it can host up to 10 people, possibly even more if there are little kids too. And there are plenty of ways to spend your time here. You can either swim in the private pool, get a tan on a sunbed, enjoy the view from the terrace, or chat away on the shaded patio. With such a villa on offer, it's surprising that no one has thought to buy this property in Greece
for themselves yet!
Azure Executive Home in Hydra
Finally, there's our Azure Executive Home on Hydra Island. Though it's the smallest luxury villa on this list, it's not so compact that it'd be uncomfortable. On the contrary, despite the fact that it only has one bedroom on offer, the villa still has room to host around 3 people at a time. And they'd definitely find it cozy enough to enjoy their time here too. After all, it's a charming holiday house in the center of a town in Hydra
. Though it isn't beside the sea like many of the other luxury villas on this list, it's idyllic nonetheless!
Check out each of our finest luxury villas on each Greek Island. They're the best accommodations in every single paradise in Greece. They're some of the perfect homes to rent in the Mediterranean!
