It is that time of year again: the Christmas decorations have been put away until next year and we look forward to the bright breeziness of spring days and longer evenings! Many of us start thinking about where will we go for our annual holiday and the promise of sun-soaked days and balmy nights lures us towards those holiday sites. If you are looking for a break that will help you to truly relax and create memories that will last a lifetime — you cannot go wrong with Greece. Here are my top ten reasons to go Greek this summer:
- Beaches that will take your breath away
The beaches of Greece feature golden sands, the stunning sparkle of the Mediterranean Sea, and the whisper of past loves and laughter. If you are staying at Santorini Villas, you will be a mere hop, skip, and a jump away from all that lovely warm sea air.
- Something for everyone
You can indulge in enjoying all the benefits of several different kinds of landscape in Greece. The beaches are divine, but if you want something a little different, you will find lots on offer. Try exploring the picturesque mountainside scenery or go for a hike in one of the many lush forests that cannot fail to inspire and invigorate.
- All the sunshine you could ever want
The Greek summer is nine months long, so there are ample opportunities to bask in the sunshine. This means that you do not have to restrict your holiday booking to July or August, which allows you much more freedom than if you had chosen many other destinations.
- Island wonder
Greece is filled with lots of gorgeous island gems, like Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes, and Hydra. Spend a day or two hopping between these beautiful places for a holiday experience that no other can match.
- Lively nightlife
Greece is home to a buzzing night time scene, with a whole host of impressive restaurants, sophisticated bars and lively tavernas. Put on your heels and paint the town red — Grecian style — for a night out that will be truly memorable.
- Fabulous food
Grecian cuisine is world famous, so make the most of all that grilled fish fresh off the boat, or sample traditional dishes like souvlaki or gyros, yum!
- Ancient delights
Ancient Greece is shrouded in mystery and magic and exploring ruins like those in Acropolis will take you on a trip to the past that will astound and amaze.
- Grecian charm
The local people are charming and friendly and will go out of their way to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. No favor is too big or small, and you might even get the odd freebie.
- Views that will take your breath away
The sights in Greece are so impressive that you would be mad not to bring your camera. Show your friends just how amazing your holiday destination turned out to be with some special snaps.
