Villas in Greece

The beautiful mainland and its islands scattered throughout the Aegean and Ionian Seas tempt holidaymakers back to villas in Greece time and time again with their idyllic climate and postcard-perfect landscapes of olive-clad hills, stunning beaches, secluded coves and turquoise seas. Here the famed local hospitality will give you as warm a welcome as the Greek sunshine and you can fill long summer days equally doing as much or as little as you please on your Greek villa holidays.

Greece - A Historical Treasure Steeped in Tradition

The cultural experience of a villa holiday in Greece is unrivalled. There are numerous historical treasures where you can rediscover a fascinating, ancient past, traditional tavernas where you can wile away a leisurely lunch sampling delicious meze, sleepy villages where time stands still, or lively resorts that stay awake long after the sun has set, buzzing with traditional bouzouki music and dancing. And what better way to enjoy it all than from the comfort of Greek villas, providing you with the freedom you need to truly enjoy all that Greece has to offer in the laid-back style of the locals.

  • Your Greece Villa Holiday

    What better way to experience the delights of Greece than by staying in a stylish Greek villa? Greece is one of the most popular holiday destinations worldwide, and it’s easy to see why. Take in the spectacular sunsets and enjoy the glorious weather at your handpicked villa. At James Villa Holidays we offer the finest villas in some of the most sought after locations in Greece, including some exceptional properties within our luxury range.

    No matter what you are looking for in a holiday, Greece really does offer something for everyone. Lounge around on the soft, sandy beaches, enjoy the idyllic landscapes, taste the tantalizing taverna cuisine and unravel the history of this fascinating country.

    You can enjoy all this from the comfort of your own private villa. Take a dip in the pool, use the self-catering facilities to cook some delicious local dishes and have an unforgettable holiday with your family.

  • About Greece

    Mainland Greece sometimes gets overlooked, but it certainly has attractions, cities and scenery to rival the islands. Delight your taste buds with some traditional Greek food, including mouth-watering dishes such as tzatziki, beef stifado and lamb kleftiko, as well as endless authentic mezes.

    Greece offers a variety of resorts for all tastes. If you fancy somewhere with an authentic charm, chose an unspoilt fishing village or rural hideaway, or for a more upbeat holiday there are many bustling towns and vibrant beach resorts.

    A favourite amongst historians and people looking for a cultural holiday, Greece is home to hundreds of fascinating archaeological sites and museums where you can relive its ancient past, from the Palaeolithic Era to the Roman Period.

  • When to go to Greece

    Greece offers guaranteed sun in the high season. Temperatures soar to 30 degrees and higher in July and August, and you can make the most of the fabulous weather by enjoying up to 12 hours of sunshine a day.

    If you are looking for a slightly cooler temperature then the autumn and spring months are a good time to go. Temperatures tend to be cooler and stay within the low to mid-twenties. This time of the year is ideal if you plan on seeing all the tourist attractions and exploring the historical sites.

  • Cultural Highlights

    There are so many jaw dropping sights throughout Greece. In Corfu, you can explore the stunning Palace of St. Michael and St George, as well as the fascinating ruins of the Temple of Artemis. This temple features stone carvings of mythological figures, including Medusa, Pegasus and Zeus.

    A hidden cultural gem of the mainland is the beautiful region of Epirus. This area of Greece is perfect if you are looking for a holiday where you can experience traditional Greece to the full. The laid back way of life and welcoming locals combined with the picturesque scenery, charming villages and harbour towns, such as Sivota and Parga, are just a few of the many attractions to this area.

    If you prefer to get out into the great outdoors, then head over to the stunning island of Zakynthos for a truly enchanting hiking trip. Whether you decide to follow the white cliffs around the island, or wander into the lush green forests, make sure you end your hike with a trip to Zakynthos’ breathtaking beaches of white sand and turquoise sea for a quick dip.

    • If you’re staying in Lefkas, make the journey to the stunning island Meganissi, for a boat trip through the mystical Papnikolis Cave – it’s an unforgettable experience.
    • Wander around the Monastery of Agios Gerasimos in Kefalonia, which despite its plain exterior, is truly beautiful inside. Think glittering silver chandeliers, detailed murals and a golden altar.

Wokingham Couple
Skopelos town charming and quite elegant, with great choice of eating places. Most places around the island were clean and the little bars and restaurants were good value. The island did not feel overwhelmed by tourists.
All the beaches we found were grit/ gravel rather than sand.
Some of the ‘roads’ shown on the map were little more than paths, which made touring the island challenging.

Bristol Friends
Location of the villa verses some really good tavernas (Mamas Kitchen, Sergio; Zorba’s); bars, supermarket, bakery, fruit and veg shop. Everything you need.
The ease of access from the airport, noting it is a little over an hour.
Close proximity of the beach, pebble not sand but easily walkable and under commercialised which compared with other locations was perfect for those wanting a traditional Greek, no hassle holiday.
Villa as already noted lived up to our expectations.
It is worth noting that whilst everything is to hand in Gennadi you may wish to go out further in the evening, taxi’s are not cheap unless there is a group. 35 euros each way to Lindos and £25 to Pefkos.
We thought we had a towel change-mid week, which we washed ourselves.

Aylesbury Family with older children
So much choice, a great selection of local and international foods available.
Some places were too close to the busy road so we avoided these.
