Greece lies at the heart of the Mediterranean, surrounded by clear seas, with a plethora of small islands, each boasting their own individual character. Greece has long been a favoured holiday destination, offering a warm welcome, delicious cuisine, made from the freshest of local ingredients, beautiful beaches and a treasure trove of fascinating history to explore. We believe that we have brought together a truly enticing portfolio of the most attractive of her islands, the most charming boutique and family hotels and the most interesting historic and cultural sites.
Greece boasts one of the Mediterranean’s most diverse coastlines, her islands accounting for up to 7.500 kms of the total 16,000 km coastline. Her turquoise waters, picturesque island villages and green hinterland make for a beautiful holiday backdrop. Add in to the mix, the historic city of Athens and you have an irresistible holiday proposition. As well as clear, calm waters, Greece enjoys 395 beaches, which have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag for their cleanliness and facilities.
Greece is known as the cradle of European civilisation, and offers a wealth of history and culture for the interested visitor to explore. No doubt the Acropolis in Athens is on most people’s list of must-see attractions. There are in fact a total of 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Greece, including the Acropolis, the sites of Delphi and Olympia, the medieval city of Rhodes and many other sites of cultural, historic and natural significance.
Over 6,000 islands
Greece has over 6000 islands and islets dotted throughout the Aegean and Ionian seas, of which only 227 are inhabited. They offer adverse landscape of beaches, bays, coves and coastal caves, which combined with their laid-back ambience and temperate climate make them popular summer holiday destinations. The Greek islands were home to some of the oldest European civilisations, suh as the Cycladic and Minoan civilisations, traces of which still remain in a fascinating architectural heritage.
