On the Map: Glorious Greek Getaways

30 May 2019

Synonymous with sunshine and unparalleled warmth, a visit to Greece‘s azure shores and jaw-dropping ancient architecture should be on everybody’s holiday bucket list.

Whether you choose a cutting-edge designer apartment like East Attica’s Minimal Blue, or a converted windmill facing the sparkling Aegean Sea (step forward Windmill Villas, perfectly placed on the rugged island of Santorini), you can expect scenic luxury, friendly hospitality, and that glorious sense of slow-lane relaxation that really is unique to Greece.

Simply add a glass or two of that famous Greek wine, some plump olives, and a platter of stuffed vine leaves, and your introduction to the charmed life of the Gods is complete. Opa!
