Modern luxury. Where to start? From the wood beamed ceilings of the bedrooms on the upper floor to the spacious bathrooms and the modern fireplace in the living room, this new-build house is stunning and luxurious.

Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.
