1. Melissani Lake, Kefalonia

This natural underground cave was formed over a thousand years ago when the ceiling of a massive cave system collapsed and fell into the sea beneath it…take a boat trip adventure to discover it close up.

 

2. Pantheon Temple, Athens

3. Paleokastrica Bay, Corfu

Considered to be one of the most gorgeous villages in Corfu, Paleokastrica Bay nestles beneath the hilly slopes of olive groves and citrus orchards.

 

4. Meteora Monasteries

There was once 24 monasteries built high upon the rocks where the monks came searching for a safe place in the 14th century. Apparently the monks rock climbed to get there or were carried up in a basket. Thankfully now there are (a lot of) steps if you wish to visit.

 

5. Theatre of Epidaurus, Peloponnese

7. Elafonisi Island

Ever wanted to visit a pink beach? Here is your chance! The sand is pink because of tiny red organisms that grow on the coral and shells and then get washed up onto the shore.

 

8. Oia, Santorini

The remains of a large volcanic eruption, home to a red and a white beach and famous for being one of the best places in the world to watch the sunset. Take a look at our villas and apartments in Santorini.

Also known as the Emerald Island due to its luscious and fertile green landscape, this is a popular destination for family holiday makers. Who can resist those crystal clear sea-green waters?

 

10. Lefkas Island
