Where to Stay

Greece's accommodation options are as diverse as its landscapes. Whether you're seeking a secluded island getaway for two, a village villa for your family, or a lively city hotel for an exciting holiday with friends, you'll find the perfect place to suit your Greek odyssey.

For a family holiday

The beaches of Crete, brimming with charming seaside resorts and a myriad of family-friendly activities make it a top pick for a family getaway. Alternatively, consider Nafplio on the Peloponnese peninsula, known for its historic fortresses and colourful old town.

For a couples holiday

Romantic Santorini, with its beguiling sunsets and charming boutique hotels, is a dream destination for couples. For a unique blend of natural beauty and rich history, consider Rhodes, a blissful sanctuary of love.

For a holiday with friends

For a festive holiday with friends, Mykonos, with its famous beaches and pulsating nightlife, is hard to beat. For a cultural twist, the city of Thessaloniki, bursting with lively bars, clubs, and rich history, is worth considering.

When to Visit

Greece basks in a Mediterranean climate, promising plenty of sunshine throughout the year; however, the best time to visit mostly depends on the type of holiday you prefer. High season, from June to August, boasts glorious sunshine but also attracts hordes of tourists. The shoulder months—April to June and September to October—provide wonderfully balmy weather and thinner crowds making them ideal for exploring historical sites and indulging in outdoor activities. For budget travellers, the off-season from November to March, despite cooler temperatures, offers fewer crowds and lower costs, perfect for urban exploring and cultural immersion.
