The island escape, Antipaxos, Greece
"If you're looking for that private piece of paradise for just the two of you, Iremia on Antipaxos ticks all the boxes. Fly to Corfu and take a hydrofoil across to the island of Paxos where you will be met by owner (and local fisherman) Iannis, who'll take you to dreamy Antipaxos in his speedboat.
Once at the tiny port, take a 4x4 (yours for the length of your stay) up to the villa, with its own pool overlooking the bay and breathtaking views of the sea. Iremia ('repose' in Greek - exactly the state you'll be in), is a laid-back hideaway. A stone-built Greek cottage, recently restored and surrounded by its own vineyards and fruit orchards, it's one of just a few houses on the island and is completely secluded. You'll have your own boat to transport you to the popular tavernas on the nearby sandy beach, or if you prefer not to venture out, The Thinking Traveller will arrange for your groceries to be delivered from Paxos so you can cook and eat overlooking the azure Ionian Sea. The beaches and coves on Antipaxos are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean and your boat will give you the flexibility to discover them at your leisure. Iremia is totally romantic and peaceful, especially in the evenings when you have only the stars and moon for company... perfect to get away from it all."
