I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Amanzoe recently, a resort set in Porto Heli Greece. It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Athens on the mainland of Greece, set on the coast. The resort is on a hillside with stunning views, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. Then just a 10 minute drive to the sea is a gorgeous beach club.
I loved this area of Greece- definitely not touristy, and relatively unknown by Americans. We went wine tasting at a nearby small family vineyard, enjoyed lots of sun at the beach club, enjoyed a cocktail at the new Nikki Beach Porto Heli, and took a water taxi to the island of Spetses. This island is so charming, with small boutiques and great restaurants on the water. I would definitely recommend a visit!
Amanzoe has the most stunning architecture, very much inspired by the Greek culture. Lots of water features, very high ceilings, and a lot of columns. Very grand! And the villas. WOW!!! Every Pavillion is incredibly spacious with a private pool and such beautiful decor. It was tough to leave!
Also making it tough to leave- the service! Everyone was so incredibly friendly and anxious to help. And such great restaurants! They took local ingredients to a whole new level with listing the name of the local farmers who they purchase the ingredients from! And you could tell- everything was so incredibly fresh and delicious.
Isn’t Amanzoe incredible? I can’t recommend it enough! Even better- clients of Ever After Honeymoons receive complimentary breakfast daily, lunch one day, an upgrade whenever available, and extra special VIP service. Email me to learn more about this beautiful resort!
