There aren’t many places left in the Mediterranean where one can retreat in solitude, but this summer house on a private islet lies hidden at the beginning of the Cycladic islands. 45 minutes from Athens via speedboat, the island is near larger neighbour Evia and covers 300 unspoilt hectares blanketed with olive trees and wild thyme. With secluded beaches along its shore, its 100-year-old villa has belonged to the same family from three generations – and there are no other buildings apart from the old medieval houses and chapel. Steps away from the man house, guests will find a calm bay, perfect for swimming or feasting on the island’s home-grown organic garden produce, including the owner’s prized tomatoes.
