The second edition hosted Gikas Xenakis, head chef one of the best restaurants in Athens, who returned for a second event together with Michelin-starred Asimakis Chaniotis from Pied a Terre in London and continued with Marianna Leivaditaki and John Skotidas, also from celebrated restaurants in London.


Sister property to Nido (and equally stylish), MarBella is on the shores of Agios Ioannis Peristeron, on the island’s south-east and a half an hour drive from Corfu Town. Landscaped gardens are set on the edge of the Ionian Sea, the hotel has its own beach and water park, and there are no fewer than 10 restaurants and bars to work through.

A heavenly ocean-side retreat, with possibly the most beautiful views in Greece: If you possibly can, fly into Corfu, then take the hotel’s boat across the ocean to your final stop. You’ll feel entirely reset and ready to holiday by the time you arrive, having passed countless secret sandy shores, caves and inlets on your way, sea salt amassing to shimmer in your hair. Elix’s reception is then like a sort of celestial spa, with barn-high ceilings and windows that frame the infinity view, and even a soothing spa-like scent to cascade over your senses.

A five star Ionian hideaway with A list appeal: Elix is a five-star hideaway in a six-star location. Blended unobtrusively into the densely wooded slopes above the brochure-worthy Karavostasi beach, this eco-conscious hive of pools, stone, wood and olive-tinted concrete offers low-key luxury amid sage-scented gardens and nature’s wild splendour.

If you are after a restorative coastal retreat, book a room at Nido Suite Hotel on the southeast coast of Corfu—it’s adults only (for guaranteed peace and quiet) and situated on a tree-clad hillside that slopes down to the idyllic beach. All suites benefit from the dreamy views of the twinkling Ionian sea, but, if you want total privacy, book the Junior Suite with its own pool.
