Greece – Overview

Few countries offer such a vast diversity of landscape as Greece and the Greek islands, from towering mountain ranges and rolling hills to lush pine forests, citrus groves and vineyards; from rocky coves and pebble beaches to mile upon mile of dazzling white sand. The sea really is bluer here than anywhere else in the Mediterranean. The bright, radiant light makes colours sparkle and sing. 

But it’s not just about the way Greece looks. It’s about the way it smells – that evocative scent of wild herbs, sun-warmed figs, olives and pine lingering on the salty air. It’s about the way Greece makes everyone feel welcome, no matter where they’re from. And the way the food, though simpler than Italian or French, is always so lovingly prepared from the freshest ingredients to be shared with friends. Wander into any taverna and you’ll leave feeling like one of the family.

Greece can be cosmopolitan and sophisticated; it can be simple and unchanged by time. Whether you’re heading for one of the islands or staying on the mainland; whether you’re looking for rural isolation to a soundtrack of cicadas and goats’ bells, barefoot luxury lulled by lapping waves, or vibrant nightlife with a euro-beat, you’ll find it in Greece.

Greece – Regions

Our featured regions in Greece

Corfu

With a dramatically mountainous interior and a generous coastline dotted with picturesque coves, sandy beaches and rocky inlets, Corfu has much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. Choose from pretty cottages that sit close to the water’s edge, spacious character homes and exclusive hillside residences overlooking tranquil bays.

Crete

Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands is a romantic one, retaining much of its character with stunning archaeological sites and medieval harbour towns. The Island can offer quiet relaxed experiences or a busy lively break. Explore the rocky landscape, unwind on golden shores lapped by azure waters or linger over a bottle of fine wine in a number of chic cafés.

Meganissi

Lying just off the coast of Lefkada, this petite and pristine island is characterised by countless hidden inlets, white pebble beaches and the clearest turquoise sea. Meganissi is wonderfully unspoilt with just a handful of tiny villages and a wild, forested interior.

Paxos

An hour by boat from Corfu, Paxos lies reassuringly off the beaten tourist track. It's somewhere to totally relax and reconnect with family and loved ones, this charming holiday destination - where time has almost stood still - is just 10km long and has three main villages. Daily activity should consist of no more than snorkelling from a bobbing boat and strolling down to dine at a waterside tavern.
