The 5 most stunning sunset villas in Greece

Sunsets in Greece are indeed stunning, especially in the privacy and serenity of a sea-view villa. Fair enough, there are more than 5, but these five definitely belong in the top of the list. As the sun hides behind the horizon, colouring the sky in deep hues of pink, red, purple and orange, these houses seem to float in an out-of-this-world heavenly plane. Intriguing skylines, far-off or close-by islands, organic rocks or dense pine forests dot the horizon and become blurry as the day slowly turns into a cool, enjoyable, aperitif -inviting evening.

Mykonos is an obvious choice as the place to enjoy superb aperitifs at sunset, and White Vista villa is the perfect place to do so. Perched on Fanari, it enjoys panoramic views of the coastline and Syros, offering unparalleled privacy and tranquility to share with friends or to enjoy in solitude.

Tinos, close by, is another brilliant example. Inviting Sunsets, as the name suggests, is a villa set in an exclusive area 150m from the closest beach. Its truly exceptional architectural style and superb quality construction make it an ideal holiday home and springboard to explore the art and gastronomy of this blessed island.

Paros, the rising star of the Cyclades, is home to Lithos Mystique, a beautiful contemporary villa with a separate guest house, just a few steps away from the beach. The views to Antiparos, across, are splendid, as is the sense of quiet luxury and peaceful relaxation that sets this house apart.

Skiathos, the liveliest and most cosmopolitan island of the Sporades, is the setting of the breathtaking Mediterranean Blossom villa. Set in the dense greenery of the island, with its own private sandy beach, this is a place of dreams. The beautiful, stone-built house, offers peaceful lounging and al fresco dining areas that make each gathering uniquely enjoyable.

Costa Navarino, on the west side of the Peloponnese, is another great option for mesmerizing sunsets. The bay of Navarino, with the picturesque seaside town of Pylos, is a short drive away. But why drive when you can practice your drive at two awarded golf courses in the area: the 18-hole Dunes Course and Bay course both offer unique sunset views while challenging your game. The private villas, designed by leading Greek architects, merge the traditional features of Messinia buildings with the principles of bio-climatic architecture to create homes that inspire. Panorama, one of the selected villas, is a case in the point.
