“Love villas, hate the lack of organised activities? Halcyon is your answer: it’s less than 10 minutes from the Peligoni Club, a Brit-run beach bar and watersports centre that has kids’ clubs, a tennis court and teen-only watersports and events. The villas is seductively lovely, with a blue-shuttered stone facade, a scented garden, a pool and stupendous sea views. Fly to Zakynthos.”
