New holidays in Greece for 2017



This year, we've revisited a Greek holiday destination that was once in our portfolio and found it to be just as delightfully unspoilt as it was back then. East Crete and the area around Palekastro is a return to the island at its most authentic, with stunning beaches, ancient history and a gentler way of life that centres on village squares and family-run tavernas.

Our 2017 Greece holiday collection also includes some wonderful new villas in stunningly beautiful Lefkada or visit Meganissi, where exclusivity and luxury lie in this peaceful island’s unspoilt white pebble coves and villages full of flowers.

If you fell in love with the Greek lifestyle that made The Durrells TV series such a delight, you can explore the location for yourself with a stay in our new villas Kalami Bay House and Villa Avra or, for a smaller island experience, there’s Loggos View House on Paxos. This newly-built two-bedroom house comes with wonderful views and a special introductory offer.

For those who can’t resist a spot of high-spec luxury, the Cavo Mare Villas (Meltemi and Thalassa) in Zakynthos are a dream come true. Stylish Greek residences that offer abundant space, spectacular views, cool white minimalism and all the creature comforts you could wish for.

For advice on the holiday in Greece for you, call our friendly team today on 020 8392 5858.
