Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Greece and the Saronic Islands your home away from home

Greece is the oldest democracy in the world, and as a result, has the most staggering and inspiring national monuments available. The monuments of Ancient Greece are what mainly spring to mind when people think of taking a holiday rental villa in Greece, but there is so much to a Greece holiday that your trip can take many forms, or a magnificent combination of culture, history, beaches, sport, gastronomy and nightlife.

Things to do on holiday in Greece and the Saronic Islands

Greece offers holiday makers all the luxury of a modern European destination, yet has managed to keep its traditional culture strong. There are so many things to do in Greece that each holiday in Greece is entirely different, with options for family holidays, sailing holidays, cultural holidays, beach holidays, city breaks and excellent last minute holidays.

Of course, the ancient ruins in and around Athens are a huge draw for visitors to Greek accommodation. Attractions like the Parthenon, the Temple of Poseidon and Delphi’s Temple of Apollo.

However, Greece is also a sporting haven. Hiking and mountain biking have become huge attractions for those wishing to take a holiday villa in Greece, away from the crowds, where you can get a genuine feel for Greek culture.

The sporting facilities of Greece are not just confined to the mainland. Sailing holidays to Greece are spectacular, as you can use the flexibility of a Greek villa, rent a yacht and discover your own secluded cove beach. Swimming, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, fishing and water skiing are very popular activities.

Places to holiday in Greece and the Saronic Islands

The Saronic Islands are hugely popular holiday destinations due to both their proximity and ease of access from Attica and Athens, but also due to the extensive range of sports, beaches, nightlife and some of the warmest welcomes available on holiday in Greece. Consisting of Salamina, Agistri, Aegina, Hydra, Spetses and Poros, the Saronic Islands make the perfect place to take a Greece holiday villa for a weekend or a longer holiday to Greece.

Attica is the most famous area of mainland Greece. Containing the ancient city of Athens, the glorious beach resorts of Glyfada and Nea Makri, and the island retreats of Spetses, Aegina and Poros, Attica is a diverse region with a Greek villa to suit all holidays.

Thessaly is the mythical plain in the shadow of Mt Olympus and the Pindus Mountain Range. The Pelion Peninsula, which is one of the most beautiful areas in Greece, is a forested area with small traditional villages springing from among the walnut, beech and oak trees. Volos, the home of Jason (of Argonauts fame), is the creator of the Ouzeri, the traditional Greek restaurant.

West Greece is a great beach holiday destination in Greece, although during the winter, snow is common in the mountains.

Weather in Greece and the Saronic Islands

Between April and mid-June, the temperatures in Greece are delightfully warm, around 25°C, yet the ancient monuments and beaches are not yet busy, and not nearly as crowded as they will become during the height of summer, making these months the perfect time to rent a self catering apartment in Greece or a Saronic Island holiday rental villa.

Travel to Greece and the Saronic Islands

There are many cheap flights to the Greek mainland available. There are a total of 18 airports in Greece which receive direct flights from across the UK, with some of the best cheap flights available through easyJetand Ryanair among other providers.

Wonderful property with the most perfect views

5 of 5
Set above the sea just outside the small village of Vivari, the villa which is one of three, has the most magical views. Sitting on one of the balconies, or the stone wall and watching the boats crossing th bay or going out to sea, could take all your time! The property is full equiped and built and maintained to the highest standards. The pool was ideal - what a joy to walk stright from the master bedroom into the pool area for that first dip of the day. I thoroughly recommend this property.

Best views in Koroni.

4 of 5
We loved "our" house, it made us very lazy, as we enjoyed sitting on the terrace. We watched the Sun rise, behind the castle wall each morning, and set behind the mountain each night. These are the moments you never get time for at home. Loved the Fishing boats coming and going, even the one with the load Greek Music playing. The steps up and down to the harbour are hard work, but its the price you pay for the uninterrupted views. The Beds & Pillows are comfortable, and a good supply of linen. Kitchen has all you need to cook if you want to. The book selection as other reviewers have stated is massive, but mainly masculine in taste, so you may want your light weight Chic lit Holliday read. it is very comforting to have Jina up the road if anything was to happen. We didn't need to call on her. I would love to say we will be back but we were so disappointed with the food in the local Tavernas, it showed the struggle the locals are having with the austerity measures. not awful, but meat was mostly bones and quite repetitive. It was very hot so the shutters and awnings were great. Thank you for the memories.
