Villas on the Greek Islands

The Greek Islands - small islands, big personality

The Ionian and the Sporades Islands are two of the Mediterranean’s greenest and most unspoilt archipelagos. The former lies off Greece’s west coast, gazing towards the Adriatic Sea and Italy, while the latter sits to the east, scanning an oriental, Aegean horizon.
Despite such geographical (and historical) differences, they have much in common, not least a deliciously gentle atmosphere, a warm, welcoming approach to hospitality (filoxenia), and an innate ability to make life easy.

The Ionian Islands



The Ionian Islands do not conform entirely to our mental image of a stereotypical whitewashed Greek archipelago. Their green mountainous interiors are a world apart from the Cyclades or the Dodecanese, and their historical and cultural DNA is firmly rooted in the west rather than the east: while most of Greece was ruled for centuries by the Ottoman Empire, the Ionian Islands were an integral part of the Venetian Maritime Republic for over 500 years.

The Sporades Islands



Situated about 120km due north of Athens, just off Greece’s east coast, the Sporades archipelago is one of the Mediterranean’s lesser known and least visited island groups. Only four of the 24 islands – Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros - are inhabited, and the further one travels from the mainland, the more one strays off the beaten path.
