Wimco Extends its Portfolio of Greek Villas into
Santorini, Hydra and Lindos on the Island of Rhodes

London, UK, March 2005 -- Wimco has increased its portfolio of holiday villas for 2005 in the Greek islands and now offers 40 exceptional villas on Mykonos, Santorini, Lindos and Hydra. Each of the villas has been chosen for its location, distinctive design and luxurious facilities. There is something for everyone – luxury and privacy are the only common denominators.

The villas start from £2,600 per week for a 3 bedroom villa for Villa Taky Mou on Mykonos and also for a similar sized villa, a simple typical Santorinian-style house in the town of Oia. Prices include maid service once a week. Prices rise to £5,670 per week for the three bedroom Villas Kymothoe and Okyroe on the glamorous island of Mykonos (including daily maid service).

On Santorini – there are eight new villas. The largest is the eight bedroom La Maltese Estate villa on Santorini, overlooking the Caldera in the traditional village of Imerovigli (£16,560 per week). The most flexible propety is The Home Collection (from £3528-£6120 per week), where a collection of five houses, each accommodating between two and five people, is perched on a thousand foot cliff. The houses are decorated using gorgeous antiques and fine art. The most unusual is Perivolas Hideaway, a stunning apartment suite in Oia (£7092 per week including 24 hour concierge service). This is a truly contemporary property – interiors are stark white against black volcanic rock. The indoor/ outdoor swimming pool brings the outside in as blue water floats right into the house. Perivolas also contains spa facilities with a steam bath, hydrotherapy, a massage pool and an indoor/ outdoor private swimming pool with a front terrace.

On Rhodes Island there are five new properties in legendary Lindos, an ancient city first inhabited around 3000 BC. For example there are two 19th century homes built for ship captains while under Turkish influence. Two Lindian Homes (three bedrooms each) are located just below the Acropolis (£1224 per week in June and September including daily maid service). The stunning Turkish-influenced architecture of the houses is extremely unusual in Greece, and all the rooms are set around an airy central courtyard. The beach is within walking distance from Lindos town.

Magical Hydra, where there are three new properties, is an island which, with its stunning architecture and absence of motor vehicles, is a must for those looking to completely chill-out. The Artist’s Studios on Hydra, are good choices for couples looking for total privacy. They are set on the hill above the town and have superb views of the port. Price for the two bedroom studio is from £1872 including daily maid service.
