If you thought Greece’s recent economic downturn had detracted from its standing as a premier holiday destination, then think again. Officially known as the Hellenic Republic, luxury Greek holidays allow you to sample the country’s rich history and culture, as well as its attractive Mediterranean climate, will ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
The best place to commence your Greek experience is in the ancient city of Athens. To say the capital boasts an incredible history is an understatement. Located in the Attica region, many regard it as the birthplace of Western civilisation. Marvel at the ancient ruins of the Acropolis, soak in the culture of world-class museums and wash it all down with a spot of shopping at Athens’ famous street stalls.
Once you’ve absorbed all the culture you can muster, unwind on one of Greece’s beautifully secluded islands. While their sheer number might seem daunting at first, all of them offer sun, sand and ultimate relaxation. One of the most popular destinations for luxury Greece holidays is Crete and it’s easy to see why. Sitting pretty in the Adriatic sea, you’ll enjoy a tan-inducing climate, as well as a vibrant nightlife and fun activities like kayaking and windsurfing. But, when we said there was plenty of choice, we weren’t joking. The islands of Corfu, Rhodes and Mykonos also beckon yet these amazing destinations just about cover the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the offshore assets of Greece.
Tailor made holidays to Greece can include a plethora of enticing spa resorts which extend across the whole country, from the peninsula of Peloponnese in the south to Halkidiki in the north. Two resorts that consistently generate positive feedback are the Sani Beach Hotel & Spa and the Oceania Club. Stretch out next to the pool and sample mouth-watering Greek cuisine as your world class experience is enhanced only by our fantastic deals.
Central and northern regions of the country offer great opportunities to wonder off the beaten track. But while you enjoy the area’s tranquil sparsity of tourists, don’t forget that there is still plenty to see and do. Luxury Greek holidays can also include trips to Larissa and Thessaloniki, which will both rightfully vie for your attention, though it’s really things like the serene hilltop monasteries of Meteora and the prime trekking opportunities of Olympus National Park that provide the area’s biggest attractions.
