Small Hotels Greece on the beaches
Looking for a boutique hotel in Greece? Our carefully-chosen collection of hotels and private villas in Greece has something to suit everyone. So whether you’re looking for a stop-over boutique hotel in Athens, a party pad in Mykonos or a luxury villa or hotel in Crete, Chic Retreats has the ultimate collection of small luxury hotels in Greece.
The Peloponnese on the south Greek mainland has plenty to offer as a holiday destination: mountains, rugged, wild landscapes and olive and cypress trees - and that’s before you start looking at the Byzantine ruins and contemplating the historical surroundings. Anniska & Liakoto are 2 charming boutique hotels in the middle the Peloponnese, in the seaside village of Kardamili, where you can choose from self-catering apartments and suites. Go hiking in the Taygetos Mountains, spend days swimming in the clear waters off the pebble beach and take boat trips around the coast; if you want to explore further afield the Diros caves and the town of Areopolis are both easy distances away.
Greek islands don’t come much prettier than Santorini with its white-washed buildings that contrast with the deep blue of the sea. In the north, our selection of boutique hotels in Santorini includes the Andronis Boutique Hotel, the unique Tsitouras Colleciton and Grace Santorini. Meanwhile, if you want to be near some of the best beaches on the island such as Kamari, Periss and Perivolas, we can suggest Zannos Melathron, a 19th-century mansion that has been transformed into a Santorini boutique hotel in the traditional mountain village of Pyrgos.
Mykonos and Zakynthos are two more popular island choices for holidays. Greek boutique hotels in Mykonos include the award-winning Grace Mykonos, just north of Mykonos town and above the sandy beach of Agios Stefanos. From here you can dip and out of the island’s renowned party life as much or little as you wish. While on Zakynthos, the 5 suite Boutique Hotel Galini is situated in the north of the island. You will need a car if you want to explore but the nearest village Volimes is only 5 minutes drive away and the port of St Nicholas, the location of the Blue Caves is also nearby.
For romance, Melenos Lindos is a small luxury hotel in Rhodes with gorgeous sea views. Cut into the hillside, it blends seamlessly into the historic village of Lindos. If you can drag yourself away, pay a visit to the Temple of Athena nearby.
