An aerial view of Lefkes Village in Paros, Greece

Greece has long been a favored destination for laid-back jet setters, and as such, its high-end hotels come with (unsurprisingly) high price tags to match. But you don't have to stay in an haute or excruciatingly hip property to enjoy an unforgettable stay in the Greek Isles. Just three hours by boat from Athens, Paros is home to this bargain gem, which sits on the outskirts of the village of Lefkes. Built on a hillside in amphitheater style, this complex of whitewashed buildings blends with the surrounding Cycladic architecture. It is enveloped by olive trees, gardens, traditional homes and the private Museum of Popular Aegean Civilization, and offers just twenty accommodations, all with charming textiles, traditional wood furnishings and private balconies. Produce from the gardens is used for jams, salads and classic Paros cuisine, while the restaurant balcony looks across the pool to views of the valley, sea and neighboring Naxos. The hotel even has its own small winery, and in September guests can witness grape pressing on-site.
