Luxury Holidays in Greece

To take a luxury Greece holiday brings the visitor to a land of contrasts as Greece is the birthplace of myth, legend, drama and hedonism,. It is also famous for its ancient history, for introducing democracy and for its vast contributions to philosophy, astronomy, literature and science. The luxury holiday options in Greece or on one of the Greek islands will allow visitors to be immersed in this eclectic mix of ancient and modern.

As befits a land which is thousands of years old and sits at the juncture of Europe, Asia, and Africa, its culture is a true melting pot. Many of Greece’s luxury hotels allow easy access to explore its past first-hand at archaeological sites such as Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys on the island of Crete, or in the Archaeological Museum of Athens, which houses some of Greece’s most important ancient artefacts. Take in the mix of old and new in the streets of cosmopolitan Athens, once home to Plato’s Academy, the first Olympic Games and still home to the Pantheon, as well as being the centre of modern cultural and political life in Greece.

Alternatively a Greek island holiday offers the chance to explore. We offer luxury hotels on a wealth of the islands.
