Style Notes

Sophisticated beachside. Elegance rules at this luxurious retreat where natural materials such as stone, wood and plaster have been blended with handpicked modern furniture and feature lighting. Playful wood-carved patterns and artworks add interest and tasteful fun to each room while bathrooms are adorned with luxurious stone. The views are stunning, with nothing but hills, sea, and a tiny island on the horizon. Large doors and windows drink them in, with sliding glass bringing the outside in, blending with the natural, rustic interiors. The gardens have been artfully landscaped with shady paths, a canopied dining space and stylish contemporary seating scattered with cushions, inviting you to sit and sea gaze. We love the stylish infinity pool which seamlessly blends with the sea beyond making for dreamy swim sessions. The chic, stone summer kitchen is a wonderful place to rustle up a post-swim lunch or enjoy a relaxed alfresco dinner beneath the stars.

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.
