“The isles of Greece! The isles of Greece… eternal summer gilds them”
With a summer stretching from early April to the very end of September, Greece certainly lives up to Lord Byron’s words. Over two millennia on from its mythic Golden Age, Greece lures visitors from all over the world to witness its wealth of historic, cultural, and aesthetic delights.
As Lord Byron recognised, though, it is Greece’s stunning islands that prove irresistible. From tiny Skopelos or Ithaca, only accessible by boat, to Crete, the largest island, there are over 150 inhabited islands to visit – more than enough for a lifetime of exploration. Our favourites include Mykonos which is well known for its party atmosphere during the summer months. Corfu is one of the most popular of the Greek islands, famous for its wonderful beaches. Then there is incredibly beautiful Santorini which is blessed with natural beauty, stunning views and amazing sunsets.
There is something magical about the Greek islands. The cares of home just drop away, leaving a feeling of instant relaxation: take pleasure in long lunches beside the harbour, tiny tavernas in remote villages, small boats for hire in which to search for your very own beach, and a glass of ouzo to accompany the sunset.
