VILLAS & APARTMENTS IN MAINLAND GREECE
Thinking of a holiday in Greece conjures up images of tavernas, ancient ruins and whitewashed villas; islands in warm, aquamarine seas, gorgeous beaches and olive groves. With more coastline than any other country in Europe and more than 60 inhabited islands dotted around the mainland, Greece is without doubt a beach lover’s paradise. But it’s much more than that; Greece has a unique and fascinating past and ancient ruins can be found everywhere, from the tiniest village to the stunning capital city, and a trip to Athens is a must for anyone with an interest in ancient history.
Villas, apartments and holiday rentals in Athens
A villa holiday in Athens presents you with an energetic city full of ancient and modern culture, that is constantly evolving whilst proudly celebrating its fascinating history.
No holiday in Athens would be complete without a visit to the Acropolis; its outstanding museum offers wonderful views over the ancient citadel. The exceptional Benaki art and design museum shouldn’t be missed either. And whether shopping for designer goods, or on the look-out for the next café to have coffee and baklava, wherever you go in Athens you will find yourself just round the corner from another astonishing ruin. For some perspective, take the funicular from Kolonaki to the top of Mount Lycabettus to get a spectacular view of Athens, the mountains surrounding the city, the Aegean Sea and on a clear day the islands beyond.
The very topography that kept invaders at bay for centuries – lofty, snowcapped mountains, vast gorges, sandy beaches and azure waters – now draws visitors of a very different kind. Filoxenia (hospitality) is as strong here as anywhere in the country; the food is among Greece's best; and the region's vineyards are contributing to Greece's wine renaissance. Locals claim to have the best of everything to give. And that’s no myth.
