ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST Discovers Greece’s Most Exclusive Private Villas & Secret Islands

ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST Discovers Greece’s Most Exclusive Private Villas & Secret Islands

In her article "Discover Greece’s Most Exclusive Private Villas and Secret Islands", Alyssa Giacobbe, writing for Architectural Digest, is all about Greece’s most memorable of the least-frequented islands and the dream homes-away-from-home to rent while there, focusing on White Key Villas.  

Here are the top picks White Key suggested and Alyssa featured in her article—for savvy travelers and design lovers—of the country’s most memorable of the least-frequented islands: 

Starting with family-friendly Paros and our Five-bedroom Villa Jasmine, the article moves on to neighboring sophisticated Antiparos and the gorgeous Eleven-bedroom Villa MelissaAlyssa continues exploring Spetses - also known as the Hamptons of Greece and suggests Villa Rakelle, an estate taking up the top of an entire peninsula overlooking Zogeria beach and indeed one of our truly unique properties from our Hidden Gem. Shifting focus to Porto Heli a resort which has long been home to the Athenian aristocracy and shipping heirs, who discreetly nest their (massive) summer homes along what’s often called the Greek Riviera, readers are being introduced to our Six-bedroom Villa Roellia, with the feature closing with Cycladic island of Tinos a beautiful and more serene island with many picturesque villages, fabulous food and wonderful beaches, ideal for refined travelers looking for a more authentic experience. The villa suggestion for Tinos is our pretty Four-bedroom Villa Margot.

Read our favorite quote from the article: 

"Everyone knows about Mykonos and Santorini, and those islands have the crowds to show for it. Which is why there’s a compelling argument to be made for going rogue and visiting one of Greece’s lesser-known islands instead. “We always recommend travelers try an island that’s a bit off the beaten path, even on their first visit,” says Elena Fotiadi of Athens-based White Key Villas, which curates and manages 300 super-exclusive (and fully staffed) vacation homes-for-rent throughout the country, many in still-emerging destinations. “It’s the best way to get your head around life here and have a pure, quintessential Greek experience.” Villa staff are always locals and can make any request a reality. “And as a villa guest, you don’t have to worry about forced interaction with other guests like you might in a hotel,” Fotiadi adds."
