If there is one time in your life where you should spend the most cash, I guess it can be on your holidays. Unless you are like me and take 10 holidays a year then you kind of break the bank.
However, if you are thinking of visiting my beautiful country Greece this year then here is a little inspiration for you. I don’t think I personally need an excuse for booking a luxury villa but some of these places are quite irresistible.
Luxury surrounding you and the beautiful environment of these villas, quite a great way of holidays. Greece has some of the most amazing history, views, food, and people. Despite the economic problems, the country is still beautiful and waiting for you to explore it. For those living in Europe and looking to not travel far yet enjoy luxury and privacy these villas do the trick for me.
Flights from the UK are cheap and in the summer there are even deals from the US to Greece for less than $600. Perfect excuse for booking a Muslim-friendly holiday.
Santorini – Villa Tramountana
Santorini must be one of the most iconic islands in Greece, with its beautiful white houses and an active volcano. It is one of the most expensive islands in Greece with thousands of tourists visiting each year.
Perfect for families looking for some privacy in this villa. Close to all the activities yet private enough for a relaxing hijab free option for the females of the family.

Crete- Daios Cove luxury resort
The most southern island in Greece, Crete has a distinctive beauty surrounded by olive tries and beautiful beaches. Each part of Crete is quite different and it feels like you are in a different island.
This is a resort property but it has some beautiful private villas. For those who want the privacy but the conveniences of having breakfast ready and activities within the resort.

Paros- Luxury Villas
You might not have heard of Paros, a small traditional island. It is very popular with Greek tourists and rightfully so in my opinion. Small and intimate this place is perfect for a few days relaxing. You can easily catch a ferry to Mykonos and Santorini from there if you want to make your own Greek Island cruise.
Overlooking the island, the villas have a private pool and great views. Plus there is privacy to enjoy the pool or soak up some sun.

Corfu- Kassiopi Villa
I grew up in Corfu so I am definitely biased but this island is magical. Plenty of history, great cultural influence, lovely beaches and food. Rent a bike and discover the island, it only takes 40 minutes to read the town from each side.
Nested within olive trees this villa provides total privacy and luxury. Nice decor, great garden and surrounded by greenery it’s the perfect escape for a hijab free holiday.
For the Villa details click here prices start from £300 per night for up to 6 people.
Halal Food is easier to find in Athens, where there is a larger Muslim community. In the islands, there might be options for local Muslims working and living there but they are no publicly available. I would definitely recommend trying the Greek vegetarian and sea food dishes as they are delicious and being on islands it is the freshest of food you can have. 🙂
