Acquisition: The Thinking Traveller becomes the largest exclusive villa rental brand in Greece.

We are delighted to announce that The Thinking Traveller has acquired leading Greek villa company White Key Villas, making it the largest exclusive high-end villa brand in Greece.

Only a year since our £7 million investment, it represents the first major step in its plan to become the leader in Mediterranean’s exclusive private villa rental market.

The acquisition of White Key Villas is highly complementary to this vision. Founded in 2005 by Anna Deimezi and Dimitris Giannakopoulos, is has established itself as Greece’s premier high-end villa rental company. The company operates over 350 villas across Greece and includes a wide range of stunning villas in spectacular locations.

Since its inception, The Thinking Traveller has continued to pride itself on its collection of exclusive villas, expert local knowledge, thoughtful service and designing the ultimate ‘Think Experiences’, including immersive cultural tours, acclaimed chefs, renowned wine gurus and other experts in their field. The business has been voted Condé Nast Traveller readers’ Best Villa Rental Company for the last six years’ running.

The acquisition will allow even more clients to experience their wonderful holidays and builds on their existing portfolio of 70 exclusive villas in the Greek islands. The expansion will initially cover the Cyclades and Saronic islands as well as the Peloponnese, and will include hotspots such as Mykonos, Tinos and Paros, with more to be added to the collection in 2022.

The new villas will join The Thinking Traveller’s 232 highly curated villas, all 100% exclusively available to rent through The Thinking Traveller, including some of the most sought-after villas in the Mediterranean. There’s no better time to dream of an escape – you can discover their collection of new Greek villas here.
