Greece

Classical soul in otherwordly surroundings

Poised as the country is at the crossroads of Africa, Europe and Asia, it's little wonder that Greece's history is as turbulent as it is fascinating. Island hop in the Aegean and Ionian seas where there are thousands of stop offs to choose from, or sightsee iconic Athens monuments like the Parthenon temple and Acropolis citadel.

The cultural and historical heritage of Greece is impossible to overstate – philosophy, theatre, the Olympic Games and modern democracy are all Greek innovations that have shaped our world immeasurably. From busy Athens, to the gleaming white villages of the Mediterranean islands, Greece is famous for its ancient sites, lots of sun, good food and the beautiful ringing of church bells. 

Luxury Holidays in Greece

The Greek landscape thrills, and Greek people are passionate about many subjects such as politics and coffee and will light a certain fire in you as well. Greece is a gorgeous destination, equally attractive for hedonistic sun worshipers as for those who want to pay homage to the old gods.

Things to Do Whilst on Holiday in Greece 

Greeks pride themselves on their cuisine and as some of the most hospitable people on the globe you’re guaranteed to be well fed every time you sit down for a meal. The Greek menu is filled with scrumptious cuisine and basic ingredients like feta and olive oil are found in kitchens across the country, but it’s the regional dishes and styles of cooking that make dining here so intriguing. Turkish and Italian legacies are woven throughout many dishes and you’ll discover islands or towns known for distinct ingredients. The secret of Greek cooking is often found in the back garden where many of the ingredients are freshly gathered and produced, a renaissance in traditional cooking means that chefs are increasingly taking time-honoured recipes to new gourmet heights.
