All of the holidays we create are completely tailor-made to you

This sample itinerary is intended to give you a flavour of what we can do
Day 1: International Flight

After an early morning departure from London (there are later flights) you will arrive in Athens at around lunchtime.

After a short private transfer to your hotel, you will have the rest of the day to explore the Greek capital before specially arranged sundowners this evening. After you have raised a toast to the beginning of your honeymoon, you will make your way to one of our favourite restaurants in Athens for dinner a deux, arranged by our local Concierge.

Day 2: The Acropolis

The ancient Greeks believed that when the gods created humans, they split their souls between two bodies, thus creating soulmates.

This morning you will travel back to antiquity as you explore the Acropolis, once the heart of ancient Athens, on a private three-hour walking tour with an archaeologist guide. As you peel back the layers you will learn about how people lived and loved thousands of years ago, digging deep into life in ancient Athens.

Nothing is more likely to get you a great recommendation than asking a local, so make sure you ask our local Concierge for their favourite spot for a romantic drink or dinner after your tour.

Day 3: The Peloponnese

This morning you will be privately transferred back to the airport, where you will pick up your hire car.

From here you will make the roughly two-and-a-half hour dive to your luxury Peloponnese hotel, arriving just in time for a pool-side lunch. Spend the rest of today pottering around your villa, before a private dinner overlooking the Aegean this evening.

Day 4: Ouzo and Honey

After a morning spent enjoying the wonderful beach club at your hotel (you can bicycle down, freewheeling most of the way, and get a golf buggy back up), you will meet your expert local guide for a visit to an ouzo producer and a beekeeper.

You will make your way to an ouzo distillery, to learn how the aniseed liqueur is made. Form here, you will make your slightly wobbly way through olive and orange groves to visit a local beekeeper, to learn how Greek honey is made - from maintaining hives and keeping the bees healthy to harvesting and making honey.

Additional Activities

  • Guided hiking through a dramatic local gorge
  • Private yacht charter for the day
Day 5: Mycenae and Epidaurus

Back to the Ancient Greeks today as you visit two of the most important archaeological sites in the Peloponnese with an expert guide.

At Mycenae, you will visit the near perfectly preserved city which legend has it was once capital to Agamemnon (of Trojan War fame) and remains one of the best sites in Greece for getting under the skin of life in an Ancient Greek state.

From here, you will move on to Epidaurus, where you will find the ruins of the Sanctuary of Asclepius - the Greek demigod who was said to have healing powers. People would travel for hundred of miles to sleep in his sanctuary, in the hope that he would come to them in a dream and tell them how to cure their ailment.

As this evening is the last of our honeymoon, we have arranged a dinner a deux under the olive groves this evening, the perfect way to top of a wonderful post-wedding break.

Day 6: International Flight

After breakfast and one final lazy morning at the hotel, enjoy a final lunch before you make your way back to Athens airport in good time to drop off your car and catch your late afternoon four-hour flight home, arriving in London in the early evening.
