Onar Andros

Miles down a bumpy dirt track, Onar is literally in the middle of nowhere – which makes it perfect for a detox from urban stress.

Its eight stone cottages are camouflaged in a lush valley on the wild north-east coast of the island of Andros, overlooking Achla Beach, where the sea is dazzlingly green. These cosy bungalows have wooden beams, brushed concrete floors and hammocks strung beneath bamboo pergolas, where you can snooze to the hum of cicadas.

Communal feasts of just-caught fish and garden-fresh organic greens are served under a giant plane-tree; and occasional yoga retreats.
