Greece & Islands

So much history, a vibrant, energetic culture, beautiful beaches, crystal clear blue waters all combine with friendly and welcoming locals.

From the historic Plaka quarter in Athens where colourful antique shops, market stalls and tavernas abound, to the more modern Athens. From the beautiful and unspoilt beaches of the peninsula which is Halkidiki to the Greek Islands that individually peddle their own unique charms and attractions there is so much to see and do that you will want to visit again and again.
