Greek Classics

by : Veronica Limone

Greece is a magical place to spend your holiday and there is no better way to enjoy food, friends, and submerge yourself in the culture and beautiful surroundings than from the comfort of your luxury villa in Greece.

A country with an extraordinary captivating mix of ancient and modern, Greece stands at a crossroads of culture and civilizations. From a villa explore Greek architecture, meet the locals and experience some authentic Greek cuisine.

The Greek islands are extremely popular amongst tourists and there are an abundance of resources at your disposal. The Ionian Islands are an integral part of the country's tradition and offer a picture postcard landscape that can never be truly captured. The best time of year to visit Greece is between Easter and mid June, with high season from mid June to the end of August. However things are slowly changing and you will find activities continue on into the winter months as well. Restaurants and bars remain open all year round on some of the islands.

The Greek territory consists of 6,000 islands and islets in the Ionian and Aegean Sea and only 227 of these are inhabited. The idyllic Ionian group of islands of Corfu, Paxi, Meganissi, Lefkada, Kefallonia, Antipaxi, Ereikoussa, Mathraki Ithaki, Zakynthos Othoni, Strofades and Kythira offer up lush landscapes tinged with Venetian flavours. Each island has its own unique culture and cuisine developed from a mixture of influences. Island gems include ancient olive groves, unspoilt villages, mountainside monasteries and famous wines.

Greece has a highly diverse coastline, long stretches of beaches and golden sands. Many of the beaches have been awarded the Blue flag and swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing and water skiing can be enjoyed safely. From a villa explore the breathtaking scenery, bathe in sunsets on the terrace or take a day trip to attractions into Athens, Delphi and Olympia on an island-hopper plane.

Staying in a villa is the next best thing to owning property in Greece and it allows you to get an authentic experience of the islands. You can choose to blend in with the locals and explore your beautiful surroundings or you can relax in the privacy and luxury of your villa, cooking Greek cuisine in your own kitchen. Enjoy the poolside views and relax in the sun by day and appreciate the mouthwatering al fresco dining by night in a luxury villa in Greece.
