Happily, whatever type of holiday to Greece tickles your fancy, this fabulous sun-baked destination has plenty to offer.
If you’re after a summer escape with plenty of great beaches, local culture and a bit of the ancient mixed in, you’ll find a huge selection of holidays to Greece through major tour operators like Thomas Cook. These holidays to Greece come in all shapes and sizes. If you fancy a lavish escape with luxury surroundings and five-star services at every turn, Elounda in Crete could be right up your street. This lovely town is home to a beautiful coastline and a smattering of upmarket local amenities that really adds something special to your Cretan escape.
If you’ve got the kids in tow, holidays to Greece are packed with choice. Try Corfu, a popular holiday island with a diverse selection of resorts. For a laid-back experience that’s perfect for hiring a car and taking life at your own pace, try the lovely beach resorts of Aghios Georgios or Acharavi, in the north. Why not rent a villa and enjoy the privacy of your own pool, where the kids can splash about to their heart’s content while mum and dad kick back on the terrace, tending the barbeque as the sun sets on another gorgeous day.
And as for party animals, they’ll find lashings of 18-30s fun, happy hours and English breakfasts in resorts like Kardamena in Kos, Faliraki in Rhodes or Zante’s non-stop town of Laganas.
