Sybarite Selection: Holiday Essentials
Join The Sybarite Club to access all our unique luxury experiences, this week presenting our editor’s pick: Villa Aéres in Skiathos – the Greek island which featured prominently in the work of its most famous son, author Alexandros Papadiamandis. The influential Greek novelist, short-story writer and poet is on record as saying: “I interrupted my studies and stayed in my fatherland.” Spend the smallest amount of time at Villa Aeres and you’ll soon see why. Set against a backdrop of two of Skiathos’ most beautiful beaches, this spectacular property is the first word in luxury, the last and most of those in between.
Surrounded by too many Mediterranean plants to mention, the mansion boasts an infinity pool, 320 sqm terrace, outdoor movie theatre and summer living room. The perfect place from which to enjoy a cheeky sundowner or two. The bedrooms – there are six in total to choose from, across two floors – all come equipped with ensuite bathrooms you could lose yourself in. Trust The Sybarite when we say that once you’ve settled in at Villa Aeres, you won’t have an easy time leaving. However if you manage to tear yourself away from the stunning property, keep your eyes peeled for Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. The Hollywood power couple are regulars on Skiathos – one of the few Greek islands to have its own airport – having fallen in love with the picturesque spot.
