Concierge.com's insider take:
Cape Skinari, the northernmost tip of Zakynthos, is the setting for this rustic, inspired property. The three Potamitis brothers—Adonis, Dionisios, and Nikolaos—started out the new millennium by converting two former flour windmills into suites for guests. The circular stone-walled structures, each two stories high, sit on a cliff top with lavish views of the cobalt sea below. Stairs set in the cliff lead right down the rocks and into the water. A traditional stone building with four spartan double rooms was added in 2003, but hold out for one of the windmills. It's amazingly quiet—except in August, when the brothers lead vacationing Europeans on nonstop motorboat trips to the Blue Caves (whose grottoes are spacious enough to swim in) and nearby Shipwreck Beach, perhaps the most photographed beach in all of Greece.
