Thanks to its fabulous flashiness, twist-a-minute murder mystery plot and Daniel Craig’s marvellously wacky accent as detective Benoit Blanc, it’s no wonder that Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery has been such a hit over the holiday period.

A huge part of Glass Onion’s attraction, however, is its setting. While the first Knives Out film was set in a very Cluedo-esque mansion in Massachusetts, USA, the second film heads to a house called the ‘Glass Onion’ on a private estate on a fictional Greek isle called Pisceshite Island. And, excitingly, you can actually visit many of its IRL filming locations.

Where was ‘Glass Onion’ filmed?

A real-life hotel and resort called Amanzoe became the ‘Glass Onion’ and played host to Blanc and the gang. And while the resort isn’t actually on a Greek island – it’s on a bit of mainland Greece called Peloponnese – it still boasts extraordinary views out over both the Ionian Sea and rows of olive groves.  

In terms of actual Greek islands, Glass Onion did shoot scenes on Spetses, which is in the Saronic Gulf. The port of Dapia on Spetses’ northern coast was specifically used to shoot a scene where the characters waited for the arrival of a yacht.

Plenty of the film wasn’t shot in Greece at all. Many of the inside bits of the hotel – as well as indoor places supposed to be in New York or the northeast USA – were built in the Serbian capital of Belgrade

Make no mistake, Amanzoe is a pretty exclusive place to stay. Some apartments on the resort cost as much as $2,000 (£1,655) per night, which is, whichever way you look at it, pretty spenny. Prices for the Villa 20 site where Glass Onion was mostly shot are available upon enquiry.

In any case, Amanzoe is open to the public – and reopens for 2023’s summer season on April 1. You can find out more about the resort and book here.

Glass Onion is out on Netflix now – read our review of the film here.

Did you see that this is where they filmed season two of ‘The White Lotus’?
