Resting along the crest of a volcanic crater, on the little-known island of Nisyros in the Aegean Sea, Villa Nemésis marries the mystique of ancient Greece with modern minimalism.

One of the few Greek islands that haven’t yet been impacted by mass tourism, Nisyros is ideal as a base for exploring the ancient castle ruins and Byzantine art on the Dodecanese cluster.

Housed in the tower Nemesis – a structure erected amongst the ruins and constructed from the same stone used to build the ancient castle that once stood on the site, the villa is available for rent for approximately $422 per night via Le Collectionist.

Guests can look out at these breath-taking scenes from the villa’s expansive sun terrace, rooftop deck or alfresco dining area where they can also spend long leisurely mornings soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine and cool Aegean breezes.
