When it comes to great getaways that tick all the right boxes, Greece very rarely falls short. This fabulous holiday destination, with its knock-out scenery, fascinating heritage and beautiful beaches, is one of those places that you can always rely on. Whether you’re after a low-cost beach break or a voyage of discovery, there’s a corner of Greece with your name on it.
And what’s more, each and every island is gloriously unique – just like the cities, towns and resorts within them. Take Kefalonia for instance. Made famous for its starring role in the Hollywood blockbuster, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, this Greek beauty certainly knows how to turn heads. But it has been attracting visitors to itsbreathtaking coasts and bustling towns long before the film industry took notice. It’s an island of craggy cliffs and secluded coves, pine-clad hillsides and whitewashed villages, twisting lanes and pastel-coloured sunsets. It really is a sight for sore eyes, and if you’re after a romantic getaway or a quiet retreat, this is the place to be.
If family holidays are on the agenda, head to any island in Greece and you’ll certainly be well accommodated. The family favourites are Corfu – also known as the Emerald Isle – and the vast island of Crete. Here you’ll find great resorts, stacks of family hotels and a varied range of family-friendly entertainment, from boat trips and wildlife centres to splash-tastic waterparks. What’s more if you book with a tour operator – for instance, if you opt for the likes of Thomas Cook family holidays – you’ll get great support for your family trip too. This might come in the style of child-friendly hotels with great pools and amenities, or local kids’ clubs with non-stop entertainment.
So whatever you need, you can pretty much guarantee that Greece has got it all… and then some.
