The Benefits of Staying in a Luxury Greek Villa on the Beach

Why are Greek villas on the beach so special? Greece is an amazing place to visit. So amazing in fact that it was one of the top U.K. holiday destinations in 2019. With so many visitors, Greece has a lot of different types of holiday accommodation to choose from. Here are some of the reasons why we think villas on the beach are one of the most special.

  • Privacy – Escape from other tourists at busy hotels and resorts. Luxury villas allow you to relax in total peace on your own or just with your loved ones.
  • Freedom to create your own schedule – Everything runs on your time at private villas. Eat, sleep, explore or party when you want without having to worry about being back at certain times for meals or interfering with house keeping.
  • Location – Having the beach on your doorstep means that great adventures are always just a moment away. Move between the excitement of the beach and the comfort of the villa with ease. Carrying changes of outfits, enough sunscreen and big bottles of water isn’t a problem when you can just nip back to your villa.
  • Host Multiple People – A luxury Greek villa is a great way to have the whole family or friendship group together in one place. The fun never has to end when you’re all sharing a space and often it can be the most cost effective option.
  • Amazing amenities – Luxury Greek villas on the beach can come with extra perks to make sure your stay is a dream come true. BBQs, games rooms, tennis courts and private spa facilities are all amenities that your luxury greek villa could include.

Which Beach is Best for a Holiday Villa?

If you want to make sure your holiday to Greece is as magnificent as possible, picking the perfect beach location is vital. There are so many areas in Greece that are exciting to explore that it can be overwhelming to know where to start. The good news is that with airports across the country and many direct flights to the Greek Islands, accessing the whole country is quite simple. The bad news is this doesn’t help you cut down your search area! Here are some of our tips to help you pick the right area for your Greek villa on the beach.

  • For watersports – The island of Lefkada is the Greek capital of watersports. It has some of the best wind conditions for sailing and windsurfing. The island of Kos has a lot of extreme watersports to get your adrenaline pumping such as wakeboarding and powerboating.
  • For sunbathing – The island of Santorini is one of the most sundrenched areas in Greece. Plus the volcanic sand here amplifies the sun to give you an even better tan.
  • For culture – The Athenian Riviera on the Greek mainland has gorgeous beaches but the capital of Athens is still easily available for sightseeing. The island of Rhodes is another great location for some ancient sightseeing.
  • For families – The island of Crete has lots of safe, kid friendly beaches with soft sand and turquoise waters for the whole family to enjoy. Ermioni on the mainland is another great option. 
  • For partying – The island of Mykonos is famous for its vibrant nightlife. Psarou Beach and Cavo Paradiso are two Mykonos beaches where the party lasts long into the night.
