Greece always makes me think of endless Mediterranean vistas, lush green mountains, and picturesque ports. I’ve had so many amazing trips to this special part of the world. I remember driving up narrow little roads to the top of a mountain, where I enjoyed the most spectacular sea views in complete awe and silence. And how I’ve enjoyed many unique holiday stays in Greece, far away from the crowds.
Greece has a way of capturing your heart!
Greece truly is a special place. I vividly recall long summer nights, toasting the joys of Greek life witha refreshing glass of Retsina. Yamas,cheers! I prefer a Fly & Drive holiday when I visit Greece as it gives me the opportunity to go and explore whenever and wherever I want. The many archaeological sites, the stunning beaches, the blue rooftops of Santorini- I just can’t get enough!
I can recommend many extraordinary small-scale locations in Greece. On Corfu and Zante, I found great stays with gorgeous views of the Ionian Sea. Because these are some of my favourite spots to unwind,I almost want to keep them a secret, Shhhhh!
Recently, I drove to the mountain village of Palaiokastro on Chalkidiki. I noticed the sky changing colour. The sun was setting and the views were breathtakingly beautiful. A Greek local I met in the port down below had told me about this spot but said I’d need a car to there. When I arrived in the quaint little village, I felt my heart sing and I was so grateful for my rental car. Don’t miss this lovely little spot in the Greek mountains.
Every Greek island is different and each has a lot to offer. Kefalonia, with its beautiful white beaches and blue seas is picture postcard perfect. And, of course, there is Crete, where I loved exploring the Samaria Gorge and discovering all about ancient Greek history at Knossos.
When in Greece, I enjoy exploring the islands and finding the prettiest places to see and stay. I also enjoy meeting the locals.. This is exactly why I believe every holiday package should include a rental car. Go and explore your surroundings during your Fly & Drive holiday in Greece. Trust me, there’s nothing like it.
If you book a car holiday, you can travel to your destination with your own transport.
If you book a flight holiday with me, it always includes accommodation and rental car!
