New: More villas with private pools in Greece in 2018

Villa specialist, Vintage Travel, has expanded its portfolio of properties in Greece in 2018 with additions including a village house carefully restored to retain its Cretan heritage but offering every manner of present-day comforts.

Internally, Sterna – a cherished family home in the village of Xirosteni for seven generations – has an impressive stone archway, log beams, family heirlooms and exposed stone walls of a bygone era, but its open plan living area, designer kitchen, contemporary bathrooms and stainless steel staircase is firmly rooted in the 21st century.

It sleeps six in three bedrooms (two en suite) and in its grounds there is a central courtyard with a vintage wine press, a swimming pool, open and shaded terraces with oversized cushions and day beds, plus a dining terrace.  Nearby beaches include Almyrida (four kms) and Kalives (five kms).  A seven-night holiday in 2018 starts at £838, rising to £2326 in peak season.

In Kefalonia, Rabia – topsy turvey by design to maximise the spectacular views of the Ionian Sea – is a welcoming, relaxing home (sleeping six in three bedrooms) in the sleepy village of Mousata, just 1.4 kms from the sandy beach of Trapezaki.  On its first floor, the open-plan living area – with a vaulted wooden ceiling – has floor to ceiling windows leading onto a wrap around balcony.

New for 2018 from Vintage Travel: Balarin set in the grounds of a 16th century French chateau…
