Greece really is the land to let your imagination soar. There’s no escaping the seep of historic magnificence or the other-worldly natural sights wherever you go, and this alone ramps up the options for anyone seeking a perfect, sun-drenched luxury holiday.
The mainland is a veritable feast of ancient cities, dramatic landscapes and cultural haunts galore, while the islands offer a laidback life brimming with unbeatable vistas and glorious beaches.
The most exquisite historic and cultural spots can be found in the capital, Athens. A city defined by its cool café-culture, the hubbub of the locals as they gather at the local tavernas sipping coffees in the sun is as irresistible as the major sites themselves.
Keep your camera handy wherever you go, because you’ll be tripping over world-famous archaeological treasures like the Acropolis and the Odeon of Hercules. And just a hop and a skip away over on the Apollo Coast, you’ll find glamorous resorts like the Grand Resort Lagonissi with sweeping sea views.
If island life is more tempting for you, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Big-hitting destinations include those like Crete and Corfu, the latter being famous for its emerald blue waters, craggy coastline and dreamy sandy coves.
Just like many of the Greek islands, you can find hallmarks to its expansive history peppered across the landscape dating from Roman times. This makes exploration as alluring as the beaches and the warm waters that border it, while stylish hotels such as Marbella Corfu complete the idyllic picture to perfection.
From island-hopping to mega-cities, there’s yet another way to submerge yourself in surreally beautiful Greece, including the countryside of mainland areas like Halkidiki. The kind of place dreams are made of, Halkidiki in the northern tip of the country brings you unspoilt natural beauty, stretches of sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and bustling towns like Kallithea. Add to this luxury hotels like Sani Asterias, and you’ll have the makings of a trip of a lifetime.
The fashion-pack won’t be disappointed with a stay in trendy Mykonos if you’re after a change from the usual city-setting. With a harbour that’s pretty as picture, turquoise sea, quaint restaurants and fashionable boutiques, this petit destination has more than enough entertaining nooks and crannies to keep even the restless traveller satisfied.
To truly explore the wonders of Greece, you have to get out there and explore its rare sights, sounds and ambience. Everything about the country is electrifying and energising, from its landscapes to its culture, food and friendly locals. Inspiring Travel Company have spent time soaking up the best places to stay helping you to find a luxury holiday that will leave you feeling on top of the world.
