The majority of Europe’s best infinity pools happen to be in Greece. With their typically white washed walls, glorious sea views and intimate, boutique feel, these Grecian hotels are tough to beat. Their infinity pools, which are often private, will typically look out from up high across a hazy blue sea: perfect for relaxing and cooling off with a view that stretches out for miles. The other hotels we have chosen come from various superb locations across Europe and their pools have equally outstanding views, either of mountains or of beautiful, rocky coastal stretches.
