Greece Hotels

Greece is split up into many smaller regions and islands each with it's own atmosphere offering unique holidays. With just over 400 beaches, some of the worlds most beautiful coasts can be found here. Greece is also famous for it's vast cultural tradition and folklore making it one of Europe's most popular tourist destinations.

How Hot?

The best times to visit Greece are during the months of spring and autumn, when the weather is pleasantly warm in most places and the tourist spots are relatively un-crowded. Mid-June to the end of August is high season, when it can get very hot with temperatures over 100ºF.

Many of the tourist resorts close down for the winter months, particularly on the islands. During this period there are fewer, if any, charter flights and a large reduction in ferry services.

Out and About

Greece and its islands offers great beaches, glorious sunshine, many historic and natural places of interest, as well as a variety of leisure activities to be enjoyed on both land and water. Whether it's enjoying some Greek hospitality, a spot of sunbathing or exploring an ancient site, Greece provides you with the perfect combination to get the most from your holiday.

Out for Lunch!

Greek cuisine relies highly on olive oil as it is used in almost all dishes. There are 4 main secrets to good Greek cuisine. These include correct use of herbs and spices, olive oil, fresh ingredients and simplicity, nothing more is needed. Some of the vegetables to try whilst out in Greece are the Greek tomatoes, carrot, onion and cabbage. Greek cheeses are a must try whilst holidaying here. Feta cheese is the most popular cheese in the country. The cuisine itself shares tastes with Italy, Turkey, The Balkans and the Levant. Try some of the fresh fish and seafood on offer or have a meze. By doing this you can try a wide variety of typical Greek dishes by choosing a selection of starters, placing them in the middle of the table and everyone dives in.
