Ionian Islands Greece Beach Resorts

These are the seven Northwestern located islands with the most amazing beaches and nearly 1000 hotels and accommodation houses.

With relatively fewer resorts and less tourism this is some of the picture postcard islands with the blue waters that straddle the Greek border with Turkey. Some of the more notable islands are Corfu, Paxos, Levkas, Ithaka, Kefalonia, and Zakinthos. While the unique climate receives more rain than some of the other Greek islands, this does result in a pretty landscape if forested groves and valleys set upon the blue seas.

The main mansion was originally built in 1780 and restored in 1985 by art collector Dimitris Tsitouras.

Now, it's been converted in 5 units, each with a separate theme and named after the unique art collection in each one.

It's located in the quiet village of Firostefani, 10 minutes (walking) from Fira. 8 km from the Santorini Airport.

Tsitouras Collection Santorini HotelTsitouras Collection Santorini Hotel

One would do well to find a resort where, art, destination and hospitality are this dramatically and expertly done. The cliffs drop off over 1000 feet wonderfully into the Mediterranean.

The Tsitouras Collection HotelThe Tsitouras Collection Hotel

Accommodations are all suites here. They demonstrate Tsitouras' personal style and respect for the Greek tradition and need of modern travelers. All bathrooms are in Greek white marble.

All meals are available and tours to the surrounding can be organized with the staff. It's not really a resort but quite an interesting - and luxurious - place to stay in Greece.

Reviewers say it's one of the most amazing Beach resort Greece options they've ever stayed at, it's very private and quiet, love that there are only 5 "houses", great service. It gets fantastic reviews.

Skopelos Beach Resorts

Skiathos has long been known to have some of the best beaches in Greece. The small island won TA best beach vacation award in TA in 2012 and as well as most likely a host of other awards. Koukounaries beach is considered one of the best beaches in the Med.

Although parts of this location about 100km from Athens have lost some of their authentic Greek appeal since the onset of mass tourism over the last 40 years, the beaches make it a worthwhile vacation destination.
