MARPUNTA VILLAGE CLUB Skiathos, Greece
HELLO, NEWBIE! THIS GORGEOUS BOUTIQUE TREAT
is due to launch in May 2017 and it’s got bang-for-your-buck written all over it. In fact, the all-inclusive ofering here, at just £140 for two per night is one of the best value-for-chic deals we seen. Located on the island of Alonissos Marpunta is a former ishermen’s village that’s been totally stripped and refurbed into a 104-room hotel with authentic Greek touches at its heart.

Stuf yourselves silly the gloriously non-tacky bufet at the main restaurant – the food is farm-to-table fresh (try the local white tuna and ‘tyropita’, a cheese pie), and there are oten live cooking classes, a real experience. Don’t forget to enjoy surprise snacks (along with whatever you’re thirsting for) at any of the bars, all day, and – for something special – book a table at its delightful seaside restaurant for lunch. Expect a cluster of trad-style buildings surrounded by a pine forest and the Aegean (with three beaches), and a clean white design with splashes of orange and turquoise. We love that the showers are lined in pebbles and the looring is polished grey stone.
Club rooms are sweet, but basic – Brides suggests booking a Junior Suite (below), which all have dazzling sea views.
FULL BOARD PERK
Breakfast is served until 11am at the pool bar, so you can roll straight from a cappuccino to sunbathing GO A Junior Suite costs from £490 per person for seven nights, all inclusive; marpunta.com
