Europe & North Africa / Greece

Welcome to the land of ancient history, where tradition influences every aspect of modern life: from musical merriment to frequent lively festivities and fabulous flavours as you sit to dinner at a family-run taverna.

The days are long and hot, the coffee is strong, the sea glistens invitingly from dawn to dusk and hospitality knows no bounds.

Why Greece?

Steeped in mythology and exhibiting an air of natural purity, Greece combines a mountainous beauty with a myriad of world-class beach resorts. A destination where the lifestyle is spun out in the warmth of the southern sun, a holiday to Greece can both stimulate the mind and soothe the senses.

From the dramatic lunar beauty of the Cyclades to the pine-covered mountains and sandy beaches of Halkidiki, the sheer geographical variety of the mainland and the infinite scattering of Greek islands is intoxicating. 

Marvel at the treasures of Athens with its dazzling Acropolis temples of Zeus and Venus, before sailing out to a host of enchanting islets on a Greek island hopping itnerary.

Mykonos with its colourful harbour; Crete’s wildflowers, white-washed villages, dramatic gorges and rugged scenery and Santorini, where iconic blue-domed churches contrast vibrantly against sugar-hued buildings and the sunset's rich hues.

Temperate, glistening waters and temptingly quiet coves of the Costa Navarino and Halkidiki are a huge hit with families. Whether in search of the quiet simplicity of village life or the classical elegance of city hotels, each resort has its own separate identity and distinctive spirit.

There's one thing that is universal, and that's that delicious Greek cuisine is to be savoured; mezes of feta salads, spicy souvlaki and tangy moist stuffed vine leaves complemented by the catch of the day - and best rounded off with a generous slosh of Ouzo or Raki.
