Your Own Mama Mia Moment

I have a confession to make - I've always been a fan of ABBA.  Oh not the costumes which I have always thought were tacky and I'm sure in hindsight they do to, but the music.  They're melodies were ones you always found yourself singing along with on the radio.  So when the movie version of Mamma Mia came out with Meryl Streep I had to see it.  Ok so Pearce Brosnan's singing leaves something to be desired, overall I really loved the film.  But along with the ABBA songs I've always enjoyed mixed up in there, I fell in love with the beautiful scenery and locations in Greece.  Villa Donna was a set that I can't help feel used this hotel as inspiration.  Villa Fabrica is for rent so if you're looking for your own Mamma Mia location in a little bit better state of repair this would be it.  Enjoy.

Originally a winery and then a corn mill, the Villa Fabrica has been converted into a lovely and unique villa that you can rent for a large party or divided into small apartments.  Decorated in a minimalistic style the views are the main attraction here.  That and location, location, location.
