Refined Elegance in Greece:
Our New Members in Santorini & Paros

We're thrilled to begin the New Year by introducing you to our portfolio of new resort and villa partners in the Greek Islands of Santorini and Paros. Under the ownership and management of esteemed hoteliers Kalia Konstantinidou and Antonis Eliopoulos, this prestigious portfolio offers a myriad of locations and a variety of styles and ambiences.

In Santorini, choose from the Mystique Hotel with its dramatic views, the Vedema Resort which evolved from a family estate located on a 400 year old winery, the Istoria Hotel which faces a stunning black sand beach, or the ultra-luxurious and exclusive Nafsika Estate villa, one of the finest villas in Greece. In the lesser known Paros, your clients will find a more traditional Greek Island retreat in Parīlio Hotel and their nearby Acron villas (details coming soon).

Each with its own chic style and 'barefoot luxury' vibe, we invite you to click on the individual properties listed below to discover location details, facts sheets, videos and more. Alternatively, you can register for our webinar here to receive a more detailed overview of these fantastic resorts and villas.

Welcoming Viareggio's Hotel Plaza e de Russie

Renowned as the ‘jewel of Viareggio’, the 5-star, sea-front, luxury boutique Hotel Plaza e de Russie juxtaposes its historical exterior with the modern hospitality services and elegant contemporary furnishings of its interior. A famed meeting place for the international jet set and ideal for families, this sophisticated hotel has been completely redesigned at the direction of Owner and General Manager Salvatore Madonna who established Hotel Byron as one of Tuscany’s top-rated boutique resorts in Forte dei Marmi. Salvatore has brought luxurious elegance to Hotel Plaza e de Russie's 44 rooms and suites, as well as the trendy Michelin-starred Ristorante Lunasia and the welcoming ambiance that comes with a family owned and managed establishment. Learn more by registering for our webinar here.
