Greek holidays are the stuff of legend. No, really. How many other countries can offer thousand-year-old monuments, beaches of bleached white sand and pretty villages of sugar-cube houses with cornflower blue shutters?
And with its mix of beautiful mainland coastlines and pretty-as-a-picture islands you can simply pick one perfect escape or choose to hop between two or three.
In Crete you can enjoy amazing local produce and one of the healthiest diets in the world; think fresh fish, plenty of vegetables and rich olive oil washed down by local wines. In Rhodes you'll find a blend of ancient civilisations and dazzling turquoise bays while in Halkidiki on the mainland, forested mountains plunge down to meet sandy coves lapped by the Aegean Sea. MORE
