Greece & Greek Islands

There’s a corner of Greece for all; from sleepy harbourfront villages to stylish cosmopolitan hotels. Most of the Greek Islands retain areas that are completely unspoilt, where golden sandy beaches awash with watersports sit side by side with thyme-scented donkey trails and tiny, secluded coves. Lofty eyrie hideaways look out over glistening blue seas, broad Aegean skies, and white-washed bougainvillea-clad houses clinging to sheer cliffs. Crete is an island of dramatic mountains and gorges and boasts a fascinating abundance of history, being the birthplace of Zeus and the Minoan empire, while Rhodes is an entrancing mix of medieval antiquities and sophistication, her magnificent harbour of Lindos crowned by the ancient Acropolis and her evenings filled with stunning sunsets and superb dining under the stars.
