Villa Giannis

The pocket-sized Villa Giannis only has nine rooms, so it feels really exclusive. The rooms are incredibly contemporary and chic. Expect a mauve colour scheme and artistic prints above the headboard.

You can also make use of the facilities at the Sunray Hotel, which is 10 minutes down the road. There, you’ll find a figure-of-eight pool that overlooks the Aegean Sea, a poolside bar and a restaurant with an al fresco terrace. There’s also a weekly Greek night that’s a big hit with guests.
