Beautiful Doors of Greece

Here we share some of the most beautiful images of Greek houses, with a focus on the poetic imagery of doors and doorways.

Many of these doors are blue, reflecting the shimmering, bright and simultaneously deep blue of the Mediterranean.

Some of these Greek homes are homely and welcoming, you just know when you enter you will receive great hospitality and a cup of coffee. Some are stunningly located, some are romantic; all of these images capture the imagination.

This Greek architecture is all about human scale homes...

Greek Houses
