With the news that Greece is now open to UK tourists without the need for quarantine, the prospect of a summer holiday to Greece is something that we’re very excited about. So, we’ve decided to look into the Greek properties that are perfectly suited for a summer getaway this year.

Upon arrival in your room, you’ll find a welcome safety box with essential PPE and information about the Domes experience, ensuring you’re well-equipped to make the most of your magnificent surrounds.
