White Key was established 10 years ago, pioneering the way of the Greek luxury villa rental industry. It is run by native Greeks with multinational backgrounds, a fable for entertaining and fine food, an eternal sensitivity for children and finally, a true passion for quality and service.

Being fully devoted to offering premium villa experiences and being avid travelers ourselves, we understand the importance of making our guests instantly feel at home, while fulfilling in no time all of their expectations through our strong network of collaborating professionals we have established during the past decade.
Our office, a crème retro house tucked inside a manicured garden, is located in Athens and is our version of a small villa in the city. It perfectly combines privacy allowing us to work in quiet, with generous indoor and outdoor common areas where we all get together to exchange ideas and experiences regarding various villas and destinations, as well as to examine new properties or quality services that will enhance our guests’ experience. More often than not, we are discussing about food we have either prepared or tasted somewhere, while we treat each other with various delicacies we feel the need to share. Hosting and the art of enjoying congenial quality time with our friends lies at the core of us all and is an important character trait of every member in our team.
Over the years we have all worked together at White Key, we have not only grown into becoming one family, but we have also literally enlarged our own families, adding a total of 8 children to our everyday life– with two twins being currently on the way. The highly sensitive, child-friendly perspective we have come to develop, has sharpened our senses regarding the nature of a child-friendly holiday has directly influenced our line of work enabling us to sincerely scan our properties based on the “child fun” and “family friendly” factor.
Our passion for creating exceptional villa experiences and our dedication to successfully combine outstanding accommodation with impeccable services, has rewarded us with consecutive recognition among Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Villa Rental Specialists for Greece, Travel + Leisure’s Best Villa Rental Agencies, our membership with UltraVilla, - The world’s leading luxury rental experts under one roof, as well as appraisal from a series of reputable Media and institutions in the field.
However, for us, our greatest achievement, are our loyal, returning guests, who summer after summer reward us with their trust to organize the precious quality time they spend with their family and friends.
