greece

Glorious sunsets, spotless beaches, warm friendly people and saphire blue seas ensure that Greece is always a popular destination.  It's a fabulous mix of sublime beauty, ancient archeological sites and wonderful resorts.

The coastline stretches 10,000 miles.  There are endless small bays and coves to explore and, of course, many Greek islands too, the largest being Crete.  Its rock coasts, vast sandy beaches, pebble shores and crystal blue Mediterranean waters are what bring guests back time and time again.

Our featured destinations within Greece are:

  • Corfu - selection of luxury private villas.
  • Crete - choice of excellent resorts.
  • Halkidiki - stay at Danai Beach Resort with its excellent spa and lots of activities.  Or try the hip and funky, great value, Ekies All Senses Resort.  Or, for families, the superb Sani Resort.

See all places to stay in Greece

We have carefully selected only the best spa and luxury villa resorts, many of which are ideal for families.  With such a warm, sunny climate - and only 4 hours flying time from London - Greece can be visited year round, though we think the best two months are May and October.  However, any time from May to October is gorgeous.

Our travel experts are on hand to advise on the best option for you, whether it's just for two of you, your family or a group of friends.

Weather and seasons

The climate in Greece is warm and sunny for the majority of the year with the risk of the occasional shower and some cooler periods over the winter. From April/May onwards the weather settles but it can sometimes be cool in the evenings. By mid/end of May, the weather generally settles in to a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings especially in July and August when it can be very hot.  Rain is unlikely but it can happen from time to time.  May and October are particularly pleasurable months.

  • Flying time from London:  4 hours
