From the mainland to the many smaller islands such as Zante or Rhodes, Greece is a perfect self-catering holiday destination, owing to the abundance of markets, superstores and small, family-run shops that can be found across the country.
Greece is like an open air museum, filled with sights and attractions. You can alternate the magnificent beaches with the wide array of historical sites. In Athens, the capital, you can admire the magnificent Acropolis and Parthenon. Another trip to the mainland can take you to Olympia to see the Olympic flame and the Temple of Zeus.
Greece resorts can cater for every type of holiday, with lively party vibes or more chilled out atmospheres. Crete boasts great bars and clubs in the party towns of Hersonissos and Malia, while the charm of Corfu lies in the smaller, less developed seaside fishing villages that have just a handful of tavernas.
Attica is bursting with historical sites, geological features, and beautiful pine forests; all less than an hour from the Greek capital city, Athens. No visit is complete without seeing the Acropolis or exploring Plaka, the ‘neighbourhood of the Gods’.Read more
