Welcome to Greece

Greece is a perennial favourite holiday destination amongst European travellers and no wonder; near enough to be just a few hours' flying time away, it pretty well guarantees good weather throughout the holiday season and better still, it's enormously varied in its landscape, culture and people, with plenty of choice between island and mainland destinations. With an ambience that is not quite full-on European nor yet Middle Eastern, it takes the best of both these worlds and makes them uniquely its own, flavouring its fascinating culture with uniquely Greek cuisine, robust Greek wines, and bouzouki music that immediately conjure up shady tavernas and crystalline blue seas.

On the north-eastern Mediterranean coast to the east of Greece, Turkey has been shaped by Greek, Persian, Roman and Byzantine empires, witness its mosques, temples, amphitheatres and traditional villages. Ephesus, a beautifully preserved Roman city, and Crusader-built Bodrum are perfect examples of Turkey's fascinating history, though its lovely coastline of sun-soaked sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, azure seas and lively resorts place Turkey firmly in the 21st century For example, Antalya is home to the Mediterranean's largest floating nightclub, whilst Gumbet and Marmara offer world-class bars, restaurants and clubs.

Greece Holiday Highlights

Head for Crete, far south in the Mediterranean, and you can almost reach out and touch ancient Greece, whose ruins generously populate the island. You'll be hard pressed to choose between the gorgeous Blue Palace Resort, the Elounda Bay Palace or Elounda Beach Resort or the stunning Daios Cove Resort in the north-east of the island.

Corfu is a holiday hotspot, but has its deliciously quiet corners too - relax and unwind at the Marbella Beach Club. Finally, the Athenian Riviera tempts sophisticated Athens urbanites to its sophisticated resorts - join them at Westin Astir Palace Resort - whilst tiny Skiathos is a perfect island destination where sun, sea and sky are your constant companions - and where better to soak it all up than our delightful partner resort here, the family-friendly five star Skiathos Princess.
