Greece is the word


Does a luxurious, spacious villa in a postcard-perfect location sound like the dream?

GIC The Villa Collection has a range of exclusive island properties as well as locations on the Greek mainland and, new this year, Cyprus (an ideal choice for those wishing to escape from the crowds). They offer expert advice so you can tailor your holiday to your specific requirements and style, whether you prefer a spacious villa with private pool, a mountain-top retreat, a waterfront townhouse or a cottage in the country. And to make your holiday extra special, Stylist.co.uk has picked six of these luxury holiday homes and arranged a different special offer for each one.
