With interesting curved exteriors and fresh, Mediterranean style interiors, Villa Eunike is modern yet homely and in the ideal spot for a Grecian island getaway. Spread across two storeys, the villa has four lovely bedrooms and a shimmering turquoise pool, but the crowning glory of this villa has to be the spa features. There's a luxurious hot tub to soothe any stress away and a 'spa bathroom' decorated in marble with exquisitely carved stone sinks and a designer bathtub.
Step through the floor to ceiling windows to find a classy living room with fresh white walls and neutral furnishings. There's a slick glass coffee table and huge grey marl sofas to sink into after a day spent out and about on the island. Wooden accents add a rustic touch, while a motif of quirky lighting runs throughout the villa - hanging pendant Moroccan style lanterns, modern chrome ovals or squared metal 'frames'.
Climb the elegant curved staircase to find four minimal yet cosy bedrooms with double beds dressed in crisp linen and cool grey or taupe blankets. Bright and airy, these rooms are havens to come home to after a day spent exploring the island. The well-equipped kitchen is perfect for those who like to self-cater. There's an oven, dishwasher and even a coffee machine, and guests can use the barbecue for an alfresco feast. 'Picture' windows provide gorgeous views stretching across to the sea.
The bathrooms at this villa are a spa and design lover's dream - two have swirly marble tiled walls and intricate carved stone sinks in black and grey. The other bathrooms have rain showers and zigzag feature walls. In the spa bathroom, elegant gilded details and a luxury bathtub are great for a few hours' escape and relaxation.
Outside, jump straight into the swimming pool for a refreshing swim or relaxing swim as you look out over the Aegean Sea. When you've finished, step out onto the lush lawn, dry off and choose between traditional or comfortable bean bag style sunbeds. There's plenty of space to soak up the Mediterranean sun on the terrace and patio. The shaded dining area overlooks the pool with fancy lattice chairs, where guests can enjoy a home-cooked meal or fruity cocktail.
At sunset, curl up with a glass of wine and watch the sunset on the sofas overlooking the pool.

This villa is situated in Kolymbia, a stunning and tranquil area on Rhodes, nestled between the mountains and the sea. Rhodes is the largest and most well known of the Greek Dodecanese Islands. This popular holiday destination enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year! Just a short walk away is the relaxed town centre, with plenty of shops, bars and cafes.
Several beaches are in the nearby vicinity, as are many of the island's best amenities. Green valleys and lush hills dot the landscape. Take a trip to Seven Springs nature park, a lush landscape encased in dense greenery. The seven natural springs cascade into a small lake, where water flows all year round. Bring your swimming costumes, as visitors can swim in the lake. The area also provides Kolymbia with fresh water. Daredevils who don't mind small spaces can navigate a narrow tunnel in the park, and families can enjoy a gentle walk through the park together.
Known as the 'Island of the Knights', Rhodes has been occupied by the Roman Empire, then the Byzantine and eventually the Ottomans. Therefore, the island is a melting pot of culture and architecture today, especially in the Old Town. Surrounded by fortification walls, the Old Town entrance is guarded through seven gates. Located through the Freedom Gate is the Palace of the Grand Master, which also has amazing views and also includes a museum of Rhodian history. The New Town showcases gorgeous Art Deco architecture, particularly the Evangelismos Cathedral, with its famous frescoes.
The Lindos Acropolis is a must-visit! This ancient citadel, located high on a clifftop has superb views of traditional houses and pebbled courtyards. In this area you'll find the ruins of the Knight's Lodge and the Byzantine church of St John. Many of the houses and monuments in this area are protected Hellenic cultural heritage sites.
Rhodes has an incredible array of beaches to enjoy. One of the most beautiful in the area is Tsambika Beach, which has gorgeous golden sand and a lively atmosphere. Holidaymakers can try out watersports or beach volleyball, and of course go swimming in the turquoise waters. Cradled atop an enormous rock that rises above the beach is the Monastery of Tsambika, where women who seek to conceive a child make pilgrimages.
Anthony Quinn Bay is another beach definitely worth a visit. The cove beach gets its name from the actor who starred in The Guns of Navarone, a movie partly shot at this beach and actually owned part of the island. Dramatic rocky peaks rise from the swirling azure and jade waters - the view from the top is awe-inspiring.
