Sweeping sandy beaches, a rich cultural history, delicious Mediterranean cuisine… Greece is the word. If you find yourself unsure of where to escape to for your next summer holiday, boasting some of the best luxury villas out there, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with Greece. The question is, if you’re going to Greece, where is best? Many favour a holiday in the luxury villas in the Greek Islands rather than the mainland. Whether it’s the peaceful views, the wraparound beaches, or the cultural hotspots, everyone has a reason to love it.

If you’re tempted by the idea of a luxury holiday in Greece, let us help you get that planning started. We’ve compiled a handy list of five of the best luxury villas in the Greek Islands…

#1 Villa Phantom, Mykonos

On the renowned Greek island of Mykonos is the gorgeous Villa Phantom. If you’re looking for a villa with a pool in Greece, this might be what you have in mind. The infinity pool spans 18 metres with sunset views over the sea, making it the perfect spot to lose yourself for hours. The villa itself is beautifully crafted with high-end style. Most incredibly, it incorporates an innovative open-air design embracing the natural surrounds of Mykonos.

Inside, you’ll find 6 spacious bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 guests comfortably. There are multiple lounging areas available to relax in, such as the rooftop terrace and the gorgeous alfresco dining space, all with breathtaking sea views overlooking the historical Delos Island. If swimming isn’t quite enough for you, Villa Phantom also provides a private gym. In addition, there’s a bar and BBQ area for those sunny evenings alfresco.

As the villa is located just a 5-minute drive from the town of Ornos, you won’t have to be doing all the cooking. Ornos has a number of gastronomical delights on offer. Be blown away at BAOS Greek Restaurant, or unwind beach-side at the popular Buddha Bar. On a luxury villa holiday in Mykonos, the world is your oyster.

#2 Villa Limpida, Paros

Greek Island villa in Paros, Villa Limpida, featuring a stunning luxury pool to relax in on your summer holiday in Greece.

If you’ve never considered a luxury villa holiday in Paros, now is the time to start planning one. As one of the best luxury villas in the Greek Islands, Villa Limpida is an obvious top choice. Its dedication to guest wellness is clear. Although a villa with a pool in Greece isn’t everything… the 100m² private swimming pool is certainly a plus. In my opinion, the panoramic views are the cherry on top of the villa exterior. Inside, the spacious villa sleeps up to 12 guests across 6 en-suite bedrooms in two wings, ideal for larger groups. The property also features unique works of art, seamlessly integrated with the perfect blend of modern furnishings and traditional elements.

Private yet grand, Villa Limpida is positioned on a large area of land, so that guests may enjoy complete a feeling of peaceful seclusion. Yet, this luxury Greek Island villa is still conveniently located near the beautiful Farangas beach, as well as the more lively town of Alyki. Should you feel like exploring the local area, Saline restaurant in Alyki offers excellent Mediterranean cuisine for the gourmands of the group. For a more casual affair, stop in at Hello Mango for speciality coffee and a delicious brunch. However, you don’t even have to venture into the town for a delicious meal. Limpida is one of the luxury catered villas in Paros, offering world-class cuisine prepared in-house by your very own private chef! Enjoy a delicious breakfast made with local ingredients, and either lunch or dinner crafted to the highest standard. Afterwards, you can wash away the day with a dip in the pool and the best views in Paros.

#3 Villa Agave, Mykonos

Combining modernity and tradition, Villa Agave is confidently one of the top luxury villas in the Greek Islands. Agave is located on the tranquil Eastern side of the island of Mykonos, hidden amongst nature. As a result, it’s secluded and peaceful, despite being only four minutes from the golden sands of Lia Beach. Its bright design is fresh and welcoming. The balconies and terraces bless each guest with an ideal view of the ocean. All to the backdrop of dining by the sparkling pool after striking up the BBQ for a traditional Greek grilling session. Or, of course, leave it all up to your very own private chef. After a delectable meal, relax with a glass of wine in the evening sun in this exceptional luxury villa in Greece.

Fancy swinging in a hammock watching over the Aegean Sea? Feel the need to discover the culture and tradition of Greece? This luxury villa holiday has something for everyone. Ten minutes away in the town of Ano Mera, you can eat like a local at Fisherman Taverna, or for some fine-dining, experience the Mykonian-French fusion of Bistrot de Nicolas. Immerse yourself in the sun-kissed town and discover the secrets of the oldest village in Mykonos. Then, return home to Villa Agave, one of the best Greek Island villas. After all, who doesn’t love a luxury villa with a pool?

#4 Ultima Corfu, Corfu

If you’ve never heard the word Xenia before, then let Ultima Corfu explain it to you. The word describes the Ancient Greek concept of hospitality, greeting new friends with open arms. As soon as you step onto the premises, this ancient concept makes itself known. The 180° crystal clear views of the Corfu Strait are mesmerising. Altogether, it’s clear why Ultima Corfu has a reputation as one of the best luxury villas in the Greek Islands. Featuring two infinity pools, a mosaic-tiled Hammam, and a yoga terrace, you’ll be constantly finding new hidden secrets about Ultima during your stay. It is also a rare opportunity to see a villa with a grand piano, for all the musicians out there. Music and a view – what could be better on a luxury villa holiday in Corfu?

Ultima’s most coveted feature may be its private jetty with direct sea access. Hop onto a speed boat for a quick journey into Corfu town, or alternatively, slow it down with a picnic on the dock with the sounds of lapping shores. Back on land, you can travel to one of the best beaches in Corfu in just 10 minutes: Barbati. This white pebble beach in a natural bay is an unmissable trip. To dine, there are many options in the Nissaki area of Corfu, where Ultima is located. But what makes this one of the best luxury villas in Greece is the in-house service, including private chef and fully staffed facilities.

Not just limited to luxury villa holidays in Greece, this incomparable concept is rolled out across the Alps. Discover sister properties for luxury ski holidays in Courchevel and luxury summer holidays in Crans Montana, amongst a selection of other summer and winter destinations.

The architecture is timeless, pairing wonderfully with views across the surrounding natural landscapes and Aegean Sea.

Across eight en-suite bedrooms, this luxury property can sleep up to 16 guests. The size makes it perfect for groups of family and friends on a luxury summer holiday in Antiparos. Obviously, we need to address the elephant in the room: the infinity pool. Apantima beach may only be a short drive away, but this luxury swimming pool is closer. Enjoy a relaxing swim as the sun sets over the horizon, before indulging in a tasty spread underneath the pergola. If you don’t want to cook in the heat, you can opt for a private chef for you and your guests!

Of course, the other option for dining – and exploring – is hitting the local towns. Visit Kalokeri for a stellar night of wining and dining, or mix it up with cocktails and tacos at Yam in Antiparos Town. Whether you want to chill or explore, this villa allows for every whim.
