A lavish infinity pool goes a long way in washing cares away. This one sits on a hillside overlooking the cyan and indigo-rippled Aegean, and drops you right into the heart of the Mediterranean with its turquoise waters and gentle breezes.
Integrated into the rocks and the sea, another dazzling formation rises: a home built of stone, steel beams and warm wood. While the interiors are justifiably lovely, the balconies are where to be if your eyes are open.
Two architects discovered this ancient watchtower among hundreds of sentinels along the Peloponnesian cape and transformed it into a hotel you won't find the likes of anywhere else. At the on-site restaurant, enjoy authentic Maniot cuisine poolside or on the veranda, each with magnificent views.
Today's agenda: lay poolside, pluck some thyme or oregano from the bushes outside and cook a Greek feast, take a walk along the rugged outcroppings, and enjoy a chilled bottle of Moscofilero with friends until the sky goes from blue to a salt-spill of stars.
Sitting like a jewel on the coast of Aegina, this minimalist, almost space-age villa gleams with glass, metal and concrete. Views of the Saronic Gulf pair perfectly for the summer reunion dinner party of post-quarantine dreams.
Standing alone in the middle of an olive grove and consisting of three stone structures connected with steel-glass elements, this architect-designed villa can host up to eight guests with four bedrooms. It's a remarkable rental in a private location in the Taygetos foothills.
