Who wouldn’t want to spend the summer at the seaside – or any other time of year, for that matter? Owning a home on the coast has never been so popular, as people seek a more relaxed lifestyle away from the capital. ‘While the pandemic-induced exodus to the countryside has been well documented, it is in fact the UK’s prime coastal areas which are proving the biggest pull for those fleeing the city,’ says Philip Harvey, of the buying agents Property Vision. ‘The spike in demand for the best seaside properties has been driven by a renewed focus on well-being and work-life balance, heightened during recent lockdowns.

THE EXTENDED RETREAT Amanzoe, Peloponnese, Greece While there were many advantages to not being able to travel this past year – not least for the planet – the craving for views of rolling olive groves, fragrant gardens and heat is too strong a calling to resist.

The spa has three new wellness retreats to cater for active and passive personalities. The Restore and Rebalance Retreat helps the stressed out with a series of massage and bodywork rituals and sound therapy.
