Why Choose a Greece Holiday?
Greece has long been a favourite holiday destination, and with very good reason. Although boasting 545 Blue Flag beaches in 2021, the second-highest total of any country, Greece offers far more than sun, sea and sand. No other country can match Greece’s combination of world-shaping history, archaeological sites, unique culture and stunning scenery. A wide range of activities, from active water sports and sailing to walking and painting is available to help you make the most of your stay and all just over a short 3-hour flight from the UK.
The Cyclades Islands
Made up of a group of 24 islands clustered around Delos, these are some of the most romantic destinations in Greece. The Eastern Cyclades are the best known and most visited. Santorini is, with Mykonos, the busiest, and world-famous for its stunning scenery – particularly the unique views (and sunsets) from the volcanic cliffs which plunge steeply into the dark waters of the caldera below. Naxos and Paros are popular, white-washed and picture-postcard pretty. Tinos and Syros are popular with the Greeks and offer an authentic island experience.
The Western Cyclades are equally as attractive but lesser-known, although the secret is now getting out and they have seen a recent increase in popularity. Andros is a green and tranquil island popular with walkers; Milos's volcanic past has shaped its amazing geology and coastline; Folegandros (also volcanic) has similarities with Santorini, but without the crowds; Sifnos is an upmarket gem and known for its cuisine; Serifos remains a peaceful backwater; traditional Kythnos has few visitors and offers walking holidays.
Least known of all is the cluster to the south of Naxos, known as 'the small Cyclades' - we feature Koufonissi, known for its golden beaches, and sleepy Schinoussa next door. Lying just to the south, long and narrow Amorgos is mountainous and remote, and a magnet for walkers.
The Cyclades are perfect island-hopping territory and we can arrange completely flexible holidays for nearly all of them.
The Dodecanese Islands
Some of the most attractive and peaceful Greek islands are grounded together in the Dodecanese Island group, which includes Rhodes, one of the best known of all Greek islands. There’s a huge amount of choice when it comes to picking a Dodecanese island – from the tranquillity of sleepy Tilos through to the liveliness of historic Rhodes Old Town – making the Dodecanese group perfect for an island-hopping holiday. We feature nearly all the Dodecanese islands, including Kalymnos and Telendos, Pserimos, Astypalea, Halki, Karpathos, Kastellorizo, Leros, Lipsi, Nissyros, Patmos, Rhodes, Symi, Tilos, Kos and Kassos, so feel free to create your perfect Greek Island holiday – including as many destinations as you desire.
The Saronic Islands and the Greek Mainland
The Saronic Islands are nestled close to the mainland coast by Athens, and many Athenians have holiday homes on these beautiful islands. Hydra has a wonderful and historic port climbing up the hillside, and has particular appeal to those looking for green holidays – all forms of private motorised transport are banned here! We also feature Aegina, Agistri, Poros and Spetses. If you’re looking to combine an island retreat with a trip to Athens, then a holiday to one of the Saronic islands is a good bet - the closest is less than an hour by frequent ferry service from Piraeus.
