RIP annual leave days
Is there anything that makes you feel more #blessed than feeling the sun on your shoulders while you’re propping yourself up on the edge of a swimming pool somewhere? No, we didn’t think so.
And, nothing gives you that bouji feeling more than having your own private pool. (Plus you can totally and unashamedly get that swimwear shot, with all the right angles and accessories, without anyone watching.)
If you’re desperate for a getaway now, here’s our edit of the best private pools around the 🌎
Camin Villa – Crete, Greece

Your very own infinity pool in Crete that overlooks olive groves and mountains? Yup, we’re sold.
