Greece Holidays

Santorini in Greece

Santorini. Mykonos. Crete. Athens. And that’s just the big hitters. White-washed buildings, sun-bleached ruins, mouth-watering cuisine and some of the best sunsets in Europe are all within just three hours’ flying time. Scattered across the Ionian and Aegean Seas, Greece’s thousands of islands are a Mediterranean paradise. From the postcard-perfect Kolymbithres Beach of Paros, to the family-friendly Ornos Beach on Mykonos; shimmering sands, sweeping coasts and sparkling waters await. Catch the sunset in Santorini, explore the picturesque harbours of Crete and discover the archaeological treasures of Athens. Be sure to indulge in the cuisine too – it truly is tough to beat.
