Dead in the middle in the Turkish quarter of Rhodes Old Town, this quiet, charming 500-year-old  Ottoman mansion is a designer jewel that’s been featured in the World Of Interiors magazine.

Superbly restored by Effie Dedes and her partner Spiros Chrysovergis, every room is furnished differently with gusto, so look at a few choices before you decide.

Its popular restaurant, humbly called The Marco Polo Cafe and set in the citrus-shaded courtyard, is always full, so book way ahead, along with your reservation.

The Michelin-quality food is prepared by head chef Lefteris Sotirakis, one of the most promising new stars in Greece.

Oia Orthodox churches on the island of Santorini, Greece.

Sparkling seas, sugar-cube villages, cliff-hanging hamlets, ancient temples, delicious Mediterranean food and mesmerising sunsets – the Greek Islands offer so much. Just ask Shirley Valentine.
