Holidays to Greece
Whether you choose mainland Greece or one of the Greek Islands, Greece holidays offer something for everyone, with fabulous beaches, warm Mediterranean sunshine, magnificent scenery and, of course, the amazing cultural heritage. We at Co-operative Travel have innumerable bargain holidays to Greece, ranging from vibrant mainland resorts to quiet island retreats; try island resorts like Thassos and Lefkas for a change of scenery.
A mainland Greece holiday offers travellers the chance to visit spectacular sites like the Acropolis and Mount Olympus, relax on sandy, sun-washed beaches like those of the Kassandra peninsula, or enjoy the nightlife of cities like Athens. Many Greece package holidays are booked on the Halkidiki peninsula, which combines thousands of years of history with lush scenery and spectacular beaches. Late deals in Greece range from traditional village resorts like Ouranoupolis, in the shadow of Mount Athos, to the vibrant purpose-built holiday villages around Kassandra.
Families wanting last minute Greece holidays will find plenty to choose from among the Greek Islands, each of which has its own special character and charm. Romantic couples flock to the striking volcanic island of Santorini to exchange their vows, while families book cheap Greece holidays in Corfu to visit the famous wildlife park and take part in the Easter celebrations.
For many holidaymakers, cheap Greece holidays mean jetting off to Crete, the largest island in Greece and somewhat of a nation in its own right. The island is split into two peripheries, or states: Chania and Heraklion, both of which have superb resorts, beaches and historical sites, with magnificent displays of wild flowers in the spring months.
Wherever you decide to book your Greece holidays, there are plenty of packages to suit your budget. Greece and its islands abound in top quality hotels, which can be booked on a full or half-board basis. However, many bargain holidays to Greece are self-catering, owing to the large number of villas and holiday apartments available.
