Corfu is one of the more popular Greek holiday islands. This beautiful, lush green Greek island comes as an unexpected and unforgettable surprise for first time visitors. Avoiding the busier south , Perfect Blue offer hand-picked properties among the picture postcard fishing harbours of the north-east and sandy bays on the west coast.
Crete is the southernmost island in Greece with a climate said to be one of the best in Europe and is deservedly ranked highly in any list of holiday destinations. Crete offers a diversity of natural features from dramatic mountain ranges to long sandy beaches and is a great destination for more active Greek island holidays.
The Mediterranean's third-largest island only came into existence on 16th August, 1960, giving the islanders control of their own destiny. There's plenty to hold your interest if you begin to tire of the spotless cove beaches or the mountain ranges - archeology visits, wine tasting, outdoor pursuits, hiking and bird watching being just a few of our recommendations.
Halkidiki forms the trident at the top of mainland Greece. Boasting some of the best sandy beaches and natural landscapes. A popular holiday destination with families, there are some wonderful sea front villages and resorts to enjoy. Combine this with a deep mythological background there is much to discover.
With its beautiful sandy beaches, small seaside resorts and mountainous landscapes, Kefalonia has a beguiling yet peaceful ambience which makes a welcome change from the more commercialised Greek islands. Kefalonia has a reputation as being a more upmarket and sophisticated choice for the perfect Greek island holiday.
Lesvos is one of the most impressive Greek islands that we have been to, blessed with the best climate in Greece, award winning beaches and some beautiful countryside that is home to a dazzling array of birds and wildflowers. As it has escaped the ravages of mass tourism it also a truly authentic Greek holiday experience.
Mykonos is a popular, cosmopolitan Cycladic island. The main town offers sophisticated bars and restaurants as well as chic boutiques and a maze of photogenic whitewashed alleyways and colourful bougainvillea. Excellent bus and water taxi services run from the town to the islands' numerous sandy beaches.
Paros is famed for it's famous Cycladic "sugar-cube" houses, sprinkled liberally over the hillsides and around the natural harbors formed by the island's coastline. For thousands of years the island's economy was driven by the delicate, white marble, famous for it's translucency and carved into many of the classic Greek artifacts housed in museums around the world. Still a Mecca for artists, who revel in the peace, creativity and the light. Between the miles of golden and sandy beaches are rugged cliffs and dramatic rock formations, evidence of Paros' volcanic birth. The seawater is crystal clear and warm enough to tempt even the most unlikely bather.
Paxos is a tiny gem in the Ionian with a relaxed, unhurried pace and genuinely friendly atmosphere. This remarkably verdant island is barely 12km by 4km, putting everything within easy striking distance. Indeed, its diminutive size and abundant flora and fauna make Paxos holidays a must for walkers.
Also known as Thera or Thira, Santorini is the southernmost member of the Cyclades islands. It is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island. Its spectacular physical beauty, along with cobbled streets and whitewashed buildings, have made the island famous.
Zante, or Zakynthos as it is known, is one of our favourite Greek islands. The southernmost and reputedly sunniest of all the Ionian islands, Zante is also the most fertile, colourful and quite possibly the most beautiful too. We highly recommend our Greek island holidays on Zante.
