Exploring the luxury resorts of Greece

Lucy Briggs | 10 Nov, 2015

During my recent visit to Greece I was lucky enough to visit a number of different areas of the country. As a Travel Specialist at ITC, I couldn't wait to report back to you guys on the luxury hotels I was privileged to see.

Our first stop was in the Peloponesse on the south west coastline of Greece where we visited the fantastic property, The Romanos.

Driving up the long driveway past the perfect greens of the golf course and arriving at such a striking and elegant entrance to the hotel ticked all the boxes for me! I felt instantly relaxed.

The Romanos is a fantastic option for families with every activity imaginable readily available for everyone to enjoy. All the same, the facilities such as the spa, beautiful grounds, and what feels like an old Greek town square situated in the hub of the resort, also provide the perfect setting for a fast paced couple looking for a relaxing break in the sunshine.

We then took the most beautiful scenic drive to Amanzoe, which quite honestly blew me away. The whole property oozes pure elegance and has such a calm feel to it. To have the opportunity to sit around the fire pit on the Sunset Pavilion and watch the sun sink into the ocean on the horizon is a must do!

We then left Peleponesse for the hustle and bustle of Athens, which did not disappoint to say the least! A visit to the magnificent Acropolis is something you must tick off the list of things to do in the city. Not only do you have a wealth of history and cultures sitting at your feet, the Acropolis is situated at the top of a large hill and there are quite a few steps to master on the way up. But this is all worth it for the most amazing 360° views of the entire city. It is a sea of white wash buildings and the ocean way in the distance. Simply stunning! We stayed just outside the bustling metropolis at The Margi Hotel, which is set on a stunning peninsula that feels a world away from the big city, yet is within easy reach for a day trip or two! For accommodation right at the centre of things, though, we'd recommend the luxury surrounds of Hotel Grande Bretagne.
