Our Greece Holidays
A circular holiday from Rhodes.
This relaxed island hopping holiday takes us on an alternative journey to a part of Greece where time seems to stand still. Walking amongst ancient ruins and in secluded, unspoilt countryside, discover each island’s unique place in history.
Enjoy a week walking in Crete from Chania.
Crete, the largest and most southerly of the Greek islands. The scattered remains of Minoan palaces, Byzantine churches and Venetian fortifications tell of the passage of whole civilisations. The wild countryside, interspersed with attractive villages, gorges and archaelogical remains; dramatic coastline tracks and lush beach paths all make for a great week’s walking.
A real journey across the seas, one rich in history and beautiful scenery.
Amazingly the majority of the ports visited on this cruise were once part of the Venetian Doge’s domain. Venice itself will be for many the highlight of this cruise.
Traditional Aegean life on the island of Evia - an Adagio holiday
Although close to mainland Greece, the island of Evia has a wonderfully remote and undiscovered feel with stunning scenery, a beautiful coastline, traditional villages and picturesque beaches. Add into the mix delicious local cuisine, wines, medieval castles, Byzantine churches, and warm Greek hospitality...
Leisurely walking on the Greek Island of Rhodes.
A holiday of wonderful leisurely walks with great scenery and ample time to appreciate Rhodes' beauty. Enjoy the island’s endless sandy beaches, array of buildings, traditional cuisine and great climate, which even in winter is ideal, when the days are generally mild and bright.
Exploring two of Greece's North Aegean islands
NEW Just a breath away from the Asia Minor coast, in the north-eastern part of the Aegean Sea, are the Greek islands of Lésvos and Chíos. Mineral springs, fortress villages, rich history, delicious seafood, and sandy beaches are all waiting to be discovered. On Lesvos we’ll discover oak and pine forests, vast olive groves and highlights of the island’s medieval and Ottoman architecture. Chíos is dotted with medieval “Mastic” villages with narrow streets and tightly packed houses, decorated churches & monasteries and our walks follow ancient kalderami or pathways.
Walking the Southern Peloponnese from a base on the Mani peninsula.
In the springtime the natural beauty of the Mani in the Southern Peloponnese comes alive with an abundance of flora and our walks will allow time to appreciate the outstanding scenery. Discover the flowers of the Peloponnese, visit archaeological sites and enjoy easy walking in hill country and coastal landscapes.
Walkers’ paradise in the northern Cyclades.
Offering miles of ancient stoned pathways, unspoiled countryside, wooded valleys, and quiet beaches, Tinos and Andros are a walker’s paradise waiting to be discovered. Relatively untouched by tourism, the islands offer a true Greek experience with lots of local flavours and colour.
