Sometimes in life we want to treat ourselves and deservedly so.

At GIC – The Villa Collection we understand that a holiday can be a personal reward. Wherever we choose to escape to in the world, a holiday can allow us the opportunity to relax and to forget our struggles, and our workloads, albeit only for a while.

We may be a little biased but for us Greece is the ultimate holiday destination. The moment that the aeroplane doors open and the warmth of the sun floods in, it is hard not to feel your shoulders drop and the stresses ebb away. Add to this the turquoise blue seas of the Ionian, Aegean and Mediterranean; the white pebble beaches and golden sand, the unhurried way of life and the delicious and healthy food, Greece truly is a piece of paradise.

Across the Greek Islands we have an extensive villa programme but, there are four properties which stand head and shoulders above the others in terms of comfort, quality furnishing and stylish interiors. Why not treat yourself to one of our ‘Premier Villas’ when you next deserve a reward?

Paparouna, Alonissos:
Nobody is in a hurry on Alonissos. The island seems to wish only to be enjoyed. The same can be said about Paparouna, a delightful three bedroom villa set on the hillside just below Alonissos Old Town. The property has been recently renovated to a high standard and enjoys privacy and dramatic views down the valley to Patitiri harbour.

This is the favourite property of Karolina from GIC – The Villa Collection.

Villa Islands View, Kefalonia:
Both ‘the jewel’ and the largest of the Ionian Islands, Kefalonia combines countless beaches with dramatic scenery under an achingly blue sky. Islands View Villa is situated 5-minutes drive from Fiscardo, the most exclusive resort on the island, and as its name suggests, affords spectacular views to the neighbouring islands of Ithaca and Lefkas. At the end of the day, as the sunsets, the panorama is breathtaking.

If you are looking for a modern villa with a swimming pool and views that you could enjoy for hours at a time – look no further.

Thalassa Vista, Skopelos:
It is hard to discuss Skopelos in the office without mentioning the wonderful view of Skopelos Town that can be enjoyed as you approach the island by hydrofoil. The capital is without doubt one of the prettiest in Greece and the ‘old town’ is full of atmospheric cobbled streets and hidden squares.

Thalassa Visata is enclosed behind whitewashed walls, just 300m from Skopelos Town. The interior of the property is a statement of elegance and outside the night-lit swimming pool and perfumed garden offer a tranquil space in which to relax.

This villa is a favourite of Stella from GIC – The Villa Collection.

Villa Perseus, Paxos:
In 1995 our Managing Director, Chris was working on Paxos as a holiday representative. At this time, Villa Perseus was his home. Today, Villa Perseus offers bright, contemporary accommodation of high standard.
