Imagine a private dinner on an islet in Caldera Bay facing Santorini on the porch of a luxury hideaway accompanied by the sounds of a live jazz band. Or staying in a minimal chic wine depo turned hotel overlooking the ocean in the Peloponnese? Perhaps you have fantasised staying in a five star hotel that looks out over one of Mykonos’ beaches?
But have you ever thought to take time out from partying on one of Greece’s most famous beaches to instead visit a farmhouse run by locals? There is trend at the moment for travellers looking to experience Greece at the top end of the luxury scale that also contains an authentic cultural Greek flavour.
Elena Papanicolaou, the founder of Greek travel agency Fly Me to the Moon explained how discerning travellers are looking for more than just luxury yachts and private helicopters and they are happy to pay big bucks for it.
