Cyclades, Dodecanese, Ionian islands, Crete, North Aegean islands, Sporades, and the islands of the Saronic Gulf: Cosmopolitan or secluded, with beautiful beaches and lush mountains, Greece’s islands promise you a dreamy holiday

Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Skiathos, Rhodes, Kefalonia, Zakynthos: from one end of the sea to the other, the Greek islands are the perfect holiday destination. It’s not just the emerald water and the idyllic beaches that make holidays on the Greek islands a world-famous holiday experience. It’s not only the bright light that floods the sea and sky, or the elegant architecture and pure nature. It’s the very personal relationship you can have with your chosen island that puts a seal of perfection on these little Greek oases.

A romantic sunset in Santorini’s Oia, painting the horizon every shade of pink...dawn on Mykonos, in Little Venice, drinking, dancing and flirting as the sun comes up... the epitome of luxury with a view of the sea from your opulent suite in Elounda, on Crete... travelling back in time, as you walk through Rhodes’ Old Town and aristocratic Corfu... a stately excursion to Athens’ smaller, nearby islands in the Argosaronic Gulf (Hydra, Spetses, Aegina, Poros)... an expedition off the beaten track where you’ll discover hidden ‘diamonds’, islands like Anafi, Kimolos and Kastelorizo, Symi, Alonissos, Samothrace and Paxi.

You’ll be drawn into an ecstatic wanderlust, eager to discover all the glories of the Aegean Greek islands:  the famous Cyclades with their whitewashed towns, the Lesser Cyclades and the Dodecanese, where you’ll encounter islands blanketed in green, small paradises of luxury (Patmos, Symi) and thriving tradition (Kalymnos, Karpathos, Astypalaia).

Add to the mix, the smiles of the locals, the hospitality and the culinary delights of the Mediterranean diet, spice it up with adventures in nature, in the deep, on the waves and on the mountains and you’ll find that discovering the Greek islands makes the best holidays of your life.
