Luxury in Greece: Fascinating culture, delicious cuisine and hospitable locals
Welcome to postcard-perfect white washed houses and private Greek rental villas set against cliffs that overlook cerulean blue waters, where fishing boats float and the aroma of Mediterranean cuisine wafts through narrow streets connected by steep staircases. Be amazed when you visit Athens and see the Acropolis and a multitude of historical sites in the 3 kilometre pedestrian zone. Cross cobblestone streets to the Ancient Agora or see historical and cultural treasures up close in one of various museums located in this ancient capital. Greek culture can be experienced around every corner with lots of history and art tours, festivals and excursions on offer. Souvenir shopping can be done in one of the various traditional town markets but Greece also boasts some world famous designer shops and a great number of health and wellness spas to enjoy. As the sun goes down Greece's bars and tavernas come alive with the sounds of pulsating music and visitors can dance until the early hours any day of the week.
With many stadiums and training centres, the country boasts every sport imaginable and the coastline offers visitors perfect diving and boating opportunities. Cycle along the wine routes of Dionysus where ancient temples and small towns can be seen along the way or visit any of the 8500 caves, like Petralona, Melissani and Chalidiki, to see important anthropological discoveries of centuries past. Drink a shot of ouzo in the shade of a palm tree on one of Greece's beautiful beaches or hike to volcanoes through lush green valleys. Visit the Meteora's monasteries or lie back and watch shooting stars in an outdoor theatre. Taste rich moussakas or spicy souvlaki with a slice of freshly baked olive bread. Watch the sunset over the Aegean ocean, from your luxury villa in Greece after a day of discovering the country's rich history, fascinating culture, delicious cuisine and hospitable locals. The birthplace of the Olympic Games offers a perfect holiday for the whole family.
