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.

There were some good ,very near restaurants and also a supermarket. Ten minutes walk away was a larger supermarket and shops. You can walk up phillopopou hill ( looking at all the ruins takes a bit longer) and down the other side to the bottom of the acropolis in twenty minutes. Plaka was a 15minute walk away. Our favourite places were the panathanaic stadium which was very atmospheric and without lots of people and the same for the ancient Agora.We used Vangelis for the taxi both ways, who was very prompt and reliable. Maria was also very kind as she allowed us to leave all our luggage in the apartment as we had a late flight. We all had a lovely holiday and one day will go back.

                                                                                              We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. Admittedly, it is in a very hilly area but, local taxis are so cheap (for a party of 4 or 5 they are even cheaper than the local transport) and so easily obtained, it didn't matter. There are plenty of local amenities close by; pharmacy, bakers, supermarket and a wide variety of bars and restaurants. The shower in the apartment was one of the best I have ever found in a holiday let and the roof terrace is massive with lots of comfortable space for outdoor dining and amazing views. However, the best thing about this apartment is Nikos himself. We had one of those accident prone type holidays and Nikos did not hesitate to drop everything to come to our assistance. When my sister had her mobile phone stolen Nikos came to the police station and helped us to register the crime (for our insurance company), translated the statement and generally smoothed everything out for us. On the way to the port, for our onward journey to Crete, we discovered one of our cases had been left behind. We called Nikos as, having left the keys inside the apartment, we had no way of getting back in and, once again, he quickly arranged to meet us back at the apartment so that we could retrieve our case. Not only was he there for us when we needed him but he did it all with a smile and a good sense of humour! I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.
