Greece and her Islands have long been a popular summer destination for British holiday makers in search of ideal luxury holidays. In part because of the guaranteed sunshine and dramatic coast line on offer across the Greek Islands but also due to the fantastic array of hotels, activities and natural wonders the country has to offer travellers.
There is something to quench the travel thirst of all categories of summer holiday makers from couples in search of romance, fantastic local cuisine and relaxing luxury accommodation to families in search of a variety of activities, adventure and entertainment necessary to make a summer holiday an unforgettable experience for all.
Another major plus point for holidays to Greece are the relatively short flight times as the typical journey time to most Greek islands is between three and four hour. Obviously a short flight time means that there is more time for you to enjoy the Greece luxury holiday experience. For couples and honeymooners Greece means a short time between check in and the beach and for families less time for children to become restless.
The Greek climate is also a major plus for the British residents as the endless clear blue skies and long sun filled days offer a welcome contrast to the often damp and grey summers of the United Kingdom. Indeed on some of the Greek Islands, including Mykonos, the sun shines for nearly 300 days and rain is only felt between February and March!
Greece has over 6000 islands to her name but of those only 227 are inhabited and only 78 have a population of over 100 people. Only a few of these islands house some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and they include Crete, Halkidiki, Santorini and Mykonos. All these islands offer the tourist in search of a luxury holiday experience bathed in Mediterranean sunshine the ideal ingredients to create a summer holiday not to be forgotten.
