Luxury Holidays in Greece
Dotted with ruins of an ancient civilisation and steeped in myth and legend, Greece is a cultural treasure chest; a place where millennia-old Classical ruins remain preserved in the sun, beautiful islands lay scattered across an aquamarine sea, and blue-domed churches cling to craggy cliffs above golden beaches. Lightfoot’s Travel Designers can arrange a bespoke luxury holiday in Greece incorporating destinations such as the Cyclades Islands of Mykonos and romantic Santorini, and the often-overlooked mainland.
We’ll arrange expert guided tours of the most important relics in Greece from the Acropolis and Parthenon to ancient Delphi. The verdant beauty of the Peloponnese - a large peninsula in southern Greece - takes you a little off the beaten track. From craggy mountains and vast gorges to sandy beaches, this area is bursting with filoxenia (Greek hospitality), verdant olive groves and vineyards, and luxury accommodation including hotels and private villas.
Greece has over 6,000 islands and islets, ripe for exploration. Island hop around cerulean waters on a private yacht to discover secluded coves, visit whitewashed villages and submerge yourself in Mediterranean life, wander narrow alleyways that are covered with thick bougainvillea, and enjoy fresh seafood at a waterfront tavern.
Two of the most spectacular islands belong to the Cyclades; the stylish, cosmopolitan island of Mykonos with its boutique shops and lively nightlife; and the dramatic island of Santorini with its mesmerising sunsets. Both offer the epitome of a luxury Greek holiday with their hotels, spas and exquisite dining options.
