Discover the beauty of the Greek islands with their stunning beaches, picturesque villages and some of the best seafood in the world. It’s the perfect destination for experiencing the best of Mediterranean culture.
From the moment you arrive, you’ll receive a warm Greek welcome and be able to enjoy everything from food to history. Whatever type of holiday you’re looking for, you’ll find it on a Greek island, whether you want to discover glamourous Mykonos or explore the rugged landscape of Corfu, Greece offers such variety you’ll want to return again and again.
The island of Corfu is fresh and green with sandy beaches and breath-taking sunsets. Nestled in the Adriatic Sea, its capital, Corfu Town is fascinating to visit thanks to its long history of occupation, with Byzantine, Venetian, French, and British architecture to see and explore. As Greece’s longest-standing tourist destination, villas, restaurants, and attractions are plentiful, yet most of the island remains unspoilt. The island is big enough to ensure variety, yet small enough to give access in a day to every corner.
From a quaint Greek fishing community to the up-market celeb-magnet destination it is now, Mykonos boasts everything you could wish for from a Greek island. The capital Mykonos Town is so picturesque that it is sometimes hard to believe it is real with its ancient Greek architecture on the UNESCO-protected museum-island of Delos.
“Mykonos town is a smart, refined, traditional locale. It harbours a maze of tiny streets lined with little shops and churches, art galleries, boutiques, cafes, chic bars and restaurants. The streets are very easy to get lost in - that being the idea to confuse itinerant pirates in years gone by. The waterfront of 'Little Venice' has some great bars to witness the sunset and watch the world go by.”

The result of a volcanic eruption around 3,500 years ago, the island of Santorini (or Thera) is now a crescent of rock rising over three hundred metres from the sea. The diamonds in Santorini’s rock tiara are its capital Thira and the villages of Imerovigli and Oia. The black volcanic beaches of the east coast are essential stops for day trips or simply relax in your private pool and enjoy the astonishing views across the ocean and hillsides.
