Beach in Astypalaia, in South Aegean

The Aegean Islands

Your real summer. Like no other.

All those heavenly blues and piercing whites and golden beaches begging you to spend the whole day on them. It’s as if summer was made for the Aegean islands. You’ll know about the stars… luxurious Santorini, stylish Mykonos and abundant Naxos in the Cyclades; and soul-soothing Kos and vibrant Rhodes in the Dodecanese. But you’ll also love discovering the likes of Serifos, Sifnos and Milos or perhaps Karpathos, Symi and Astypalea as well as others where the feeling of summer goes on and on.

Boat trips, walking tours, hiking and culture trips, delicious local products and recipes … and lots and lots of beach-time doing exactly what you’ve been waiting for. All with the generous welcome of locals there to take care of your every need, just the way you deserve. After all, these are the islands like no other!.
