Staying in a deluxe villa on a Greek Island sounds like the perfect vacation, but what if you can transform it into an experience that’s tailor-made for your interests and desires? We talked to our partner – Athens-based Bespokers – about the high-end services that go alongside their upscale rental properties for the summer season of 2022.
Be it Mykonos, Santorini, Corfu, Paros, or Naxos, the aim is to ensure you have a holiday you’ll never forget. From two-bedroom residences with infinity pools to 18-bedroom oceanfront estates, there’s a property to suit your taste and group size. What’s more, Bespokers organize tailor-made experiences, including chefs, yoga sessions, and private events like weddings.
Gastronomic vacation of a lifetime in Corfu
If you’re interested in sampling local and international cuisines whipped up by acclaimed chefs, why not opt for a culinary experience? Bespokers collaborates with skilled private cooks to curate personalized menus based on guests’ favorite flavors and ingredients.
At six-bedroom Villa Euphoria in Corfu’s Nissaki, the setting is ideal for a gastronomic vacation of a lifetime. Choose from two areas to eat your meals: the large dining room with doors leading out to the grounds, or al fresco overlooking the Ionian Sea.
Each day, a full breakfast is prepared, plus an afternoon snack. Staff are on hand to buy groceries, with lunch and dinners cooked by a professional chef as and when you choose. Fancy a themed evening? Not a problem. Keen to get out and about for a food or wine tour? Bespokers will happily arrange that.
The fully-serviced villa is a sight to behold, with contemporary décor throughout and features such as a hammam, gym, and cinema room. Spread over the main building and a guest house, each en-suite bedroom boasts a private balcony or terrace with fabulous views out to the water.
Head outside and you’ll find a two-tiered sea-facing infinity swimming pool and a Jacuzzi – primes places to admire the glorious scenery from. You’ll also enjoy separate areas carved out of the rocks providing scenic spots for lounging in the sun, as well as direct access to the water.
Located on the east coast of the island, you’re half an hour from Kérkyra and the airport, and the small bay of Nisaki is on your doorstep.
Wellness experience in Santorini
If you’re all about relaxing and mindfulness, Bespokers’ wellness experiences are for you. Their skilled dieticians, trainers, and chefs will organize healthy meals, yoga retreats, personal trainers, and self-care treatments to balance your mind and body.
