Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort 

An enchanting village-style retreat with a medieval twist

Contemporary design rubs shoulders with cobblestoned alleyways and a 400-year-old wine cave restaurant.

Off the beaten track in the peaceful, white-washed medieval village of Megalohori, Vedema is a bougainvillea-filled resort with a swish pool and a scattering of hammocks and sun loungers set among the olive trees. Its townhouses are home to stylish suites and dining is atmospheric; Mediterranean barbecues on the terrace and candlelit dinners in a 400-year-old stone-clad wine cave.
