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. 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.View villas in Greece
