Vacation Rental of the Week: A Stone Villa in Greece

June 27, 2013 • By

As you know, I love renting houses, villas, apartments – heck, even barns if they’re stylish and fun – when I travel.  Here’s one I haven’t personally rented yet, but I sure am tempted!  This charming little home is called a “jewel box for two” on the Boutique Homes website.

I’ve become a big fan of One Fine Stay, and I’ve had good experiences with VRBO, AirBnb and other sites.  But I just found out about Boutique Homes when they started following my Twitter feed.  (Thanks!)

I’m impressed with the quality and diversity of their offerings – and I definitely hope to check into one of their small hotels soon, too. They have a separate section on their website for true boutique hotels around the world.

StoneVillaExtThis particular property in Megalochori, Greece features a private courtyard and swimming pool, as well as an intriguing bath tub/shower combo that I’d be sure to make use of.  (I love well-designed, luxurious and/or unique spaces for my water rituals!)  There’s also a small kitchen, of course, but according to the description, you’re also steps away from a number of great restaurants.


This property is stylishly simple and looks really cozy to me.  Rent it, and you can live like a (relaxed, tan) local on your next trip to Greece.
