an amazing greek vacation home

The Greek Isles; my bucket-list travel destination.

The wonderful whites and earth tones of Jasper Conran's vacation home in Lindos on the Island of Rhodes are exactly what I would image for the perfect Greek get-away.

Who's with me?

We stayed at Melenos in Lindos several years ago. This style is very much like that beautiful spot with it's Turkish influence to the decor. The pebble floors are laid down one stone at a time. It's is gorgeous.

We stayed at Melenos in Lindos (right at the bottom of the acropolis there). It is very much this style - with a Turkish influence. The owner told us the pebbles were laid one by one for the floors & walkways - and they are gorgeous.
The wood steps and railings you see through the doorway - those are generally the platforms for beds (although in this image it looks like they are using it in another format).
Your post makes me want to go back there.

I went to Greece a few years ago and was ready to move - if I do, I want the iron bed in your first photo.
