Villa Niriides

The Villa Niriides looks like it was plucked straight from a storybook. It’s got stone walls, terracotta roof tiles and wooden window shutters. Plus, the countryside backdrop is stunning.

The villa also comes with its own private swimming pool with parasols and loungers. Top billing goes to the covered terrace – it’s a great spot to tuck into a barbecue dinner while gazing out at the hills.

Step inside the villa and there’s a traditional vibe. Brick walls, stone fireplaces and wooden beams share space with modern touches like leather sofas. There’s an open-plan lounge and dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen and a barbecue for al fresco meals.

The beaches are action packed, but you’ll also have your pick of three water parks, an aquarium, a diving centre and a golf course. The central location of the Villa Niriides means that all the best bits are close to home.
