With its ancient temples, stunning architecture and golden beaches, Greece needs no introduction to many travelers. But there's much more to Greece than centuries-old ruins and soothing sunshine. Today's Greece is a country of diversity and hidden charms, of idyllic scenery and heart-stealing villages. The hardest part about coming to Greece is deciding exactly what to see!
Too often overlooked by travelers bound for the islands, central Greece is home to some of the country's most impressive history and scenery. Here, dramatic mountain ranges reach for the gods in the shadow of some of ancient man's most impressive accomplishments. Delphi, built into the foothills of legendary Mount Parnassos, houses the sacred Sanctuary of Apollo, one of the world's most magnificent marvels of ancient architecture.
Greece Villa Rentals That Will Steal Your Heart
Villa rentals are a popular alternative to the crowded hotels on the beaches of the Greek Islands. Crete, legendary birthplace of Zeus, has beaches and ancient sights that are truly divine, while chic Corfu and celebrated Santorini offer dramatic landscapes as well as healthy doses of sun and sand. If you're headed to the islands during summer, book well in advance. Villa rentals often book up months in advance.
If you're looking for villa rentals on the Greek mainland, consider the Peloponnesian coast. On Greece's southern peninsula, Peloponnese offers easy access to Athens and the ancient sites of Mycenae and Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games. Enjoy the very best Greece has to offer--or just bring a good book to read as you soak up the sun. In Greece, the choice is yours!
