Agreco Farm, Crete

Picture this: a rustic wedding on a quaint farm, with its olive press, workshops, and a guesthouse. It even has a church. Agreco Farm is the ideal venue for a wedding. Located on a hilltop near the small village of Adelianos, Crete, the estate allows for spectacular views of the surroundings. Say “I do” in the small chapel on site and opt for an outdoor dinner and enjoy local delicacies, raki, and wine in a convivial setting.

 

Amaltheia, Varkiza

A wedding venue by the sea, Amaltheia is perfect for glamorous couples looking for an elegant venue by the waters. Partnering with specialists and wedding experts, the venue has several services including catering, decorating, and even car rentals. Choose between the summer or winter hall, a DJ, or a local band, and find your perfect gala dinner. You can even decide on having fireworks at night to end your special day on a spectacular note.

 

Deda Estate, Thessaloniki

Located in the heart of green land, the Deda Estate, less than 20 minutes away from Thessaloniki, is a beautiful estate and an equestrian club where you can celebrate your wedding ceremony and reception in one place. The Agios Konstantinos and Eleni chapel is located within the estate, saving you time and transportation costs. After the ceremony, walk to the reception area, which you can have outdoors or in the country-styled hall. Bonus point: the estate is managed by the five-star Makedonia Palace Hotel, allowing for convenient transportation to and from the hotel for you and your guests. What more do you need?

 

Kallithea Springs, Rhodes

Rhodes is a popular destination due to its amazing weather, great beaches, and medieval castle. Kallithea Springs was constructed in Moorish style and included pebble stone mosaics, Rotonda Hall, a terrace, an impressive patio, and stairs at the entrance. The wonderful gardens have palm trees, pine trees, flowers, and many other plants. Below the spring facilities, there are small coves with crystal thermal water. The renovated Springs of Kallithea opened its doors in July 2007 and since then many high-end events take place.

Cameo Island, Zakynthos

Cameo Island is a small, private island off the shore of Laganas, Zakynthos. The island—actually more an islet—has a beach that can be hired for a private wedding ceremony by the water. Accessible by a footbridge, the islet is ideal for an intimate wedding. There are many wedding agencies that offer Cameo Island wedding packages, with a reception in a nearby taverna.

 

Orloff Resort, Spetses

A beautiful and cosmopolitan island, Spetses is often considered a romantic destination for many. So why not take the opportunity to exchange your vows in the scenic Orloff resort, near the Old Harbor of the island. This little haven of tranquility offers casual luxury in the dedicated area by the pool, with a reception at the award-winning restaurant on site. Your guests may even benefit from special room fares. So make yourself and everyone happy with a grand wedding in one of the most beautiful hotels on the island.

 

Theros Wave Bar, Santorini

Of course, no destination wedding list of Greece would be complete without mentioning Santorini, the island that oozes romanticism. Switch up your game and ditch the typical caldera view. You can of course ask your photographer to do your wedding shoot there later, but for now, take a step back and trust Theros Wave Bar for your big day. Start with the ceremony on the beach or on the wooden terrace, then relax on the comfy lounge beds or by the bar. For the reception, have a lovely dinner in a relaxed ambiance before kicking your shoes off and dancing the night away.

 

Church of Agios Ioannis, Skopelos

Get yourself a Mamma Mia wedding on the idyllic island of Skopelos. Relive the iconic wedding scene in the lovely church of Agios Ioannis, perched on top of a rock. After you say “I do,” have your photoshoot by the church or choose to explore the several movie locations across the island. Or skip the church and have your ceremony on the Amarantos rocks, where you can take spectacular photos with your spouse. And even if you are not a fan of the movie, just know that Skopelos was a romantic destination long before the movie came out.

 

St Paul’s Bay, Rhodes

St. Pauls Bay is known for its picturesque scenery and a stunning view towards the rock on which the Lindos Acropolis stands, its golden fine sand, and the turquoise waters. It is believed that St. Paul came here in the year 51 AD to teach Christianity to the Rhodians. The beautiful small church built on the hillside to the right of the bay is also a very popular wedding location.

 

Ambelonas, Corfu

Ambelonas Corfu is a multi-purpose establishment within a vineyard at the heart of Corfu island. An alternative option ideal for elegant micro-weddings and elopements in Greece.

 

The Most Romantic Hotels in Greece

Greece is one of southern Europe’s most romantic destinations, offering secluded beaches, white Cycladic villages, and sunset vistas. For the ultimate couple’s getaway, you’ll need an accommodation to match your surroundings. From intimate coastal boutiques to one of Athens’s grandest five-star hotels, these are the most intimate places to stay in Greece.

Villa Bordeaux

Quiet, classy Villa Bordeaux consists of four Cycladic-chic suites in a 19th-century mansion. Despite their location in the center of Fira, Santorini’s clifftop capital, they’re amazingly secluded and center around the town’s largest infinity pool. Couples based here can also dine at Santorini’s only French fine-dining restaurant, where top-flight chef Jerome Coustillas takes inspiration from Mediterranean countries. The Aqua Suite has its own plunge pool with volcano views – the perfect spot for sunset cocktails.

 

Klidon Dreamy Living Suites

Mykonos’ Dreamy Living Suites is an ideal destination for loved-up couples, and not just because the honeymoon and king suites feature their own private hot tubs and rainfall showers, large enough for two. Everything is geared towards romance, from the west-facing balconies – ideally placed for the island’s cinematic sunset – to its light and airy accommodations. Mykonos, the island’s charming coastal capital (also known as Chora), is a 20-minute walk away.

 

Perivolas Santorini

Santorini is definitely a top honeymoon destination, made all the more romantic with a stay at Perivolas Santorini.

While there are several restaurants to choose from, opt for a romantic dinner served in the comfort of your suite.

 

Verina Astra

Often overlooked as a romantic destination, the beautiful island of Sifnos is home to Verina Astra, a resort consisting of 14 distinct villas surrounded by lush gardens. Set on a steep hill and offering panoramic views over the sea, Verina Astra has a gorgeous lounge area where you can take in the scenic beauty while sipping on a cocktail.

Boheme Mykonos

Located on the western side of the island, Boheme Mykonos is perfect for couples looking for a stylish retreat. Book the honeymoon suite with its sunset terrace and private hot tub for two. Start the day with a yoga class in the garden, followed by a morning sunbathing on the pool deck or stroll down to the beach. While the nightclubs of Mykonos town are just a short walk away, you’ll be tempted to stay on-site to sip a craft cocktail at the Bilo Bar.

 

Domes of Elounda

Bespoke luxury is the focus at the Domes of Elounda, an exclusive five-star resort with all-encompassing views over the islet of Spinalonga. Opt for the Haute Living package and you’ll be treated to everything from butler service and helicopter transfers to private afternoon tea.
