Our Founder

Maria was not born in a hotelier or hospitality family. She spends her early years studying econometrics and finance and worked for over 17 years in Investment banking and finance while lived and traveled on three different continents and over 30 countries. So, travel kind of grew on her...
Her lightbulb moment happened when she decided to abandon her corporate career and return home, totally over burned but full of experiences as a corporate and leisure travel client around the world. Then, her friends and former colleagues who decided to travel to Greece were reaching out for advice and ideas, all looking for exceptional locations and premises and of course the highest standards of service...

So, in 2010, Maria Nikolakaki launched Beyond Spaces Villas with a vision of designing fully serviced luxury villa experiences in Greece. With a passion for philoxenia, design, art, culture, and food among others but more to the point crazy about details and service! In the way, she pioneered the villa design experiences and for almost 10 years she set the footprints for marketing and services for all companies operating in the industry.

But today travel is paused, forced to reinvent itself. So, brands must adapt..

“So, we change as well. As market leaders, we set the tone once again and we proceed with adapting our promise and services…Quite rightly, today's travelers want more. It is not just where you go anymore…”
Maria Nikolakaki
