Greece Holidays 2019/2020

Turquoise waters, white-sand beaches, lush interiors, a glorious climate and fabulous food, Greece has all the ingredients for the perfect holiday. Once lauded as the Cradle of Civilisation and birthplace of the Olympic Games, and more recently the setting for countless blockbuster movies such as Mamma Mia!, Shirley Valentine and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Greece continues to appeal to millions of visitors each year as a premier summer holiday destination. It’s a land of sparkling colours, natural splendors, towering cliffs and sun-bleached ruins. You can be as active or relaxed as you want. Sail, windsurf, enjoy a spot of tennis, or relax by the pool and maybe mooch around a local market. Greece is a sailing nirvana, a hiker’s paradise, and a sun-worshipper’s dream destination. Whatever you do, a warm welcome is guaranteed.

Many visitors head for one of the hundreds of sun-kissed Greek islands. Among the best known are Rhodes, home to ancient ruins and once renowned for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. And Lemnos, famous for its mountainous interior, large sandy beaches and the stunning views from the medieval castle of Myrina, the largest castle in the Aegean. There are many lesser known islands that are just as captivating, such as Kos, the smaller neighbour of Rhodes, and Lesvos, just off the coast of Turkey, blessed with award-winning beaches and an incredible variety of wildlife.

What most of these islands have in common is beautiful secluded beaches, clear azure waters, unspoilt landscapes, historic ruins, mouth-watering cuisine, aquamarine lagoons and some of the best holiday resorts in Europe. The consistent winds, exceptional climate and easy launching make these destinations perfect for sailing and windsurfing. So if you and your family want to learn or rediscover a watersport – with many other activities available too – then Greece is the word.
