Ah, Greece! This earthly paradise with its dream beaches and crystal clear waters, from the grandiose Paros to the isolated corners of the island of Crete, without forgetting the inevitable Santorini. Don’t know where to put your bags for a memorable Greek holiday? No worries. BFM recently offered us its most beautiful design hotels in Greece and the least we can say is that the selection is extraordinary.
Immerse yourself in a luxurious world within the home of mythology by exploring these 5 luxury hotels, combining sometimes ancient, often modern architecture, stunning pools and sleek elegance.
1. Istoria Hotel
Imagine where the black volcanic sand of Perivolos beach meets the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea… Well, that’s where Istoria Hotel is, a true celebration of Cycladic beauty.
The charm of this place is its sophisticated simplicity. Here you will feel like you are in a real Santorini home, with its pristine white walls, elegant arches and golden domes. Take the plunge into the impressive pool with its majestic green glow, while enjoying the breathtaking sunsets.
2. Numo Ierapetra
Let’s leave Santorini and head for Crete, near the charming town of Ierapetra. Reinvented in 2021, Numo Ierapetra is a haven of peace where to recharge your batteries.
If you dream of relaxing in one of the two swimming pools, tasting exquisite Mediterranean cuisine or taking a walk on the mysterious island of Koufonissi, you are in the right place. We love the elegance of the rooms and the little extra: the private pool in the Junior Suite.
