Commissioned in the early 70s to host distinguished friends of ship owner Giannis Carras, Villa Galini was designed by renowned architect Kostas Kapsampelis to resemble the monastic architecture of nearby Mount Athos. An inner courtyard, secluded patios and verandas, topped off with mountain and a breathtaking bay views creates an ambience to match the illustrious list of guests who have passed through, including European royal family members, politicians Francois Mitterrand, and Konstantinos Karamanlis as well as artisans Salvador Dali, who designed one of the villa’s bathrooms, and Gina Bahauer, whose piano remains in the music suite to this day.
