Villas in Greece and Apartments by Holiday Lettings

Why Greece?

Whether you’re looking for a hedonistic holiday filled with good food and fine wine, or want to go island-hopping in search of ancient history, Greece never disappoints. It’s the perfect romantic escape for starry-eyed lovers everywhere. 

Classic Beauty

Greece is home to some of the most important and impressive historical sights in the western world. Head to Athens where you can explore the Acropolis, the Parthenon and the

Temple of Hephaestus; these stunning structures are simply breathtaking. Other historical highlights include the Ruins of Delphi, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum on the island of Crete and the Epidaurus Ancient Theatre near Ligourio.

Blue Sea & Golden Sand

With the 11th longest coastline in the world, mainland Greece certainly has its fair share of beaches. And they are stunning. Super Paradise Beach in Mykonos is, as the name implies, a long sandy bay with crystal clear water. Sarakiniko Beach in Milos and Kolymbithres Beach in Paros are secluded quiet and relaxing, while the sunsets over Balos Beach in Crete will leave you feeling awestruck.

Food & Drink

If you like a glass of wine or two, then book a tour with Santorini Wine Adventure: you’ll be a wine connoisseur before you can say “yamas”. To find out how to make a moussaka and tackle a tzatziki, join one of the many food tours and cooking classes in Greece. And to find out more about Greece’s love affair with olives, visit the Museum of the Olive and Greek Olive Oil in Sparta.
