Eagles Villas Outdoor Pool

Review: Eagles Villas, Halkidiki, Greece

Eagles Palace and the new Eagles Villas form part of a family run resort in a stunning location just a few kilometres from Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki. In the shadow of Mount Athos, it’s the most incredible setting for one of Greece’s premier five-star resorts. Eagles Palace Hotel is where most of the action happens and sits right on the beach. Note, that the new Eagles Villas are slightly separated from the main hotel with an even more exclusive feel, situated up the hill with jaw-dropping views of the sea (more of that later). From water sports on the beach to the large pool and a host of fitness, cultural and relaxing activities, there’s plenty to do for everyone. The resort is family friendly (yes there are quite a few kids) but the kid’s club keeps them occupied most of the time. If you want to brush up on your Greek alphabet or Greek cooking skills, there’s a class. Take pilates or personal training too – it’s all covered in the daily activity schedule. The list is …

Korres Yoghurt Collection - The Spa Man

Korres launches new Yoghurt Bath and Body Collection

Greek yoghurt is part of the DNA of Greek Culture so it’s no surprise that Korres has developed its Yoghurt Bath and Body Collection. It’s the perfect summer skincare range for the body, cooling and soothing and instantly transports you to a sunny Mediterranean island in the Aegean Sea. The new Yoghurt bodycare essentials, including Showergel, Body Milk, Body Butter and Hand Cream, are powered with the leading ingredient’s ultra-moisturising properties to deliver lasting hydration, deep nourishment and smoothing action.

Korres Santorini Vine

Korres is quintessentially Greek to me. The ingredients, the collections and the inspiration. Popular right across the country, it’s widely available around the world and this year the brand launched two partner products inspired by the icon of the Greek islands, Santorini. If you have ever been to this beautiful island in the Aegean, you will know it’s famous for the white Cycladic architecture,  a breathtaking landscape and the huge caldera (and some eye watering prices in bars with a view). What you may not know is that the island is also famous for wine, particularly the white grape, Assyrtiko, from which this collection takes its inspiration. The range itself has a fruity note and grape extract which creates a distinct, naturally sweet aroma. Influenced by the volcanic soil in which it grows and the sea air, this collection is enhanced by additional notes of green apple, floral, citrus, peach and minerals – all reminiscent of green fresh blossoming vineyards…the scent of Santorini in the Summer. SANTORINI VINE SHOWERGEL RRP: £8.00 (250ml) It’s fresh, light …
