Greece is a beautiful country to visit, with a lot of history to explore. Its many islands all offer something different, so you can find the perfect place to stay. Whether you want to stick to the mainland and see Athens or travel to Crete, Rhodes or Santorini, you can plan the perfect trip. Anyone looking for a luxury time away can find somewhere to be pampered in Greece. You stay in a beautiful villa, spend some time island hopping on a yacht, and lounge on the beach or by the pool. Get started with your luxury trip by making the important decisions below.

Choose an Island

There are so many different islands to choose from when you go to Greece. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with the most popular places. You might even want to stick to the mainland and visit Athens and other areas. Some of the most popular islands to visit include Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, and Corfu. There are thousands of islands altogether, but fewer that you could stay on for a long time. If you can’t make your mind up, how about a spot of island hopping? You could take ferries, rent a yacht or even kayak between the islands.

Find Somewhere to Stay

If you want a luxury holiday, you have a few choices. One option is to stay in a luxury resort, where you’ll be surrounded by fantastic facilities. You can choose somewhere with a pool, eating and drinking options, and perhaps even a private beach. You might never have to leave the resort to have a great time. There are also hotels outside of the resorts, whether you want a chain or a boutique hotel. If you wish to be a bit more independent, you could look into renting a property. You can feel like you have your own home away from home with an Athens apartment or a Crete luxury villa…

Plan Activities

Decide what you’re going to do on your luxury holiday in Greece so you have it all planned out when you arrive. There’ll be no stress if you sort everything out before you arrive. There’s so much to see and do, and you don’t have to limit yourself to the island you’re staying on. If you love the outdoors, there’s activities on land and sea to enjoy. Go hiking, rent a yacht or enjoy some watersports. More sedentary people might prefer to spend their time on the beach, or perhaps just wandering the towns. There’s a lot of history to explore for any history buffs, including plenty of museums and historical sites.

Find the Best Food and Drink

Eating and drinking in Greece has to be one of the best things to do. You’ll find plenty of Greek and Mediterranean restaurants serving delicious cuisine. And, of course, there’s lots of seafood too. If you want upscale dining, you can start in Athens. But you can find luxury restaurants on the islands too. Be prepared to wander around and discover something you might not have taken a chance on.

Greece’s islands can offer up the ultimate in luxury for your next trip. Start looking at your options to tailor the perfect time away.
