There is a reason why so many tourists return year after year to Greece for their summer holidays. The way of life here is so laid back, the people are as warm as the weather, the beaches are perfect and the prices reasonable... the list is endless.
Another highlight is Greek food, endless plates of Mezze such as Dolmades & meatballs... meaty mains such as Kleftiko, Souvlaki and Stifado or honey laden baklava pastry.
With so many delights to sample and so many islands to choose from - you will visit Greece time and again so make the most of the easy pace of life here as you have all the time in the world!
The largest of the 6000 Greek Islands, Crete is great for family holidays & all inclusive breaks. See historical highlights such as Spinalonga, relax on a beach in Hersonnisos or party in Malia... you are sure to find everything you need on Crete. *HER More information on Crete
The UNESCO World Heritage site of Rhodes Town is a magical world built within castle walls. Lined with cobbled streets, dotted with rooftop tavernas and shops built inside the castle walls... you need plenty of time to get lost here.
Also, don't miss the amazing beaches and whitewashed buildings at Lindos... take a donkey ride or hike up to the old acropolis which overlooks the stunning bay... this is simply one of our favourite Greek islands! *RHO More information on Rhodes
Picture perfect Santorini is the poster child of Greece. The whitewashed buildings and blue domed churches cling to the cliff edges and the views over the turquoise sea are unbeatable. Great for romantic breaks, weddings or family holidays - Santorini will never disappoint. *JTR More information on Santorini
Zante or Zakynthos has long been a party island favourite - The resort of Laganas was designed for fun and certainly has the young (or young at heart) in mind with its endless main strip lined with pubs and clubs. The Ouzo flows freely here and the fun is as endless as the sandy beach. *ZTH More information on Zante

Top tip: Island Hop! So many of the islands are close together, so why not hop on a ferry and take a day trip somewhere new! You can easily get to Santorini from Rhodes... Kefalonia from Zante, or if you are on a city break in Athens, why not add a day onto your trip and take a ferry to the small island of Aegina! *Arrival Airport
