Teal Mediterranean waters. Santorini sunsets. Olive tree groves. Greece was made for lovers. If you’re ready for a dreamy escape, here are the best love shacks in Greece – they’re all bookable on Culture Trip.

Greece is already a prime honeymoon spot, but also far more than a fly-and-flop destination. You can unfurl on the beaches of Kos, but a romantic Greek holiday might also include exploring hiking trails, quaint villages and ancient ruins. There’s an equally varied amount of romantic places to stay too, including ecohomes on glamping sites, secluded island hotels and even a 19th-century windmill. Find your perfect spot below.

1. NISI Campsite, Fthiotida

Set on the shores of the Malian Gulf in central Greece, NISI Campsite has a wide range of intimate lodgings. With bell tents, domes, ecohomes, tiny houses and bungalows, it may be best to spend a week here sampling them all. Our pick is the elevated tree house for two – swing the doors open in the morning for spectacular vistas of the azure sea from the comfort of your plush bed and spend your days lounging on your hammock. Bliss.

2. Sails on Kos Ecolux Tented Village, Kos

Nothing says romance more than glamping – especially when it’s set just a short stroll from one of the prettiest beaches in Kos. Sails on Kos has four different types of tent – villas, safari, glamping and bell. Opt for the glamping tent for a plush bed and sofa and romantic Adirondack chairs out front. When you’re not swimming at nearby Marmari Beach, there’s an on-site pool, an outdoor theatre, a bar, restaurant and a yoga platform.

3. Anerada Inn Boutique Hotel, Evrytania
