Greece is the ultimate Euro highlight with its archaic mainland peppered with beautiful beaches and a handful of picture-perfect islands cropping out of the crystal clear Mediterranean waters.

Olga and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Crystal clear and warm seawater. In Sani, the white sandy beach will have you pinching yourself to make sure you didn't somehow board the flight to the Maldives instead
  • The clutch of recently-opened small hotels in wonderfully rustic locations - but with 5-star service
  • More ancient history than you can throw a stick at. Amphitheatres, columns, statues, archaeological remains abound in the crucible of the world's first European superpower so you can inject some culture into your luxury holiday

Original Highlight

Takis’ Taverna in Limeni, Peloponnese. Fish so fresh you can see the next catch still swimming freely in front of your table, the best Greek salad you’ll find anywhere and crisp, excellent local white wine. It’s easy to see why locals travel from Athens to get here!

A note on price

A romantic, relaxing break to gorgeous Santorini (staying in the best room on the island with a private pool, Club class flights and private transfers) would cost approximately £3,600 for two. Alternatively, families of four could expect to pay around £3,300 for a week in the Peloponnese’s Costa Navarino. Learn more about our pricing
