The famed thermal springs of Kyllini on the Peloponnese Peninsula have played host to visitors for over a century that have travelled here to take in the therapeutic waters, eucalyptus scented air.
The Ionian island chain also has its own luxurious jewels to offer. Zakynthos for example has established a reputation that befits its place in the Greek myths as part of the kingdom of the legendary king Odysseus. Also known as Zante, the rich natural environment prompted the Ventians to call this island ‘The Flower of the East’. Famous for aquamarine waters, white beaches and Venetian villages, Zante is served by an international airport.
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and has a reputation for beauty. It’s green landscape sits juxtaposed with whitewashed villages, and it boasts a variety of natural and manmade sights for the visitor. It is also seeped in history, having played host to the Greek, Roman, Venetian and Ottoman Empires over the years. Highlights are Samaria Gorge and the Minoan palace at Knossos.
Long a favourite of the jet setting rich, Mykonos, nestled in the Cyclades, pretty much wrote the book in terms of a hip and stylish location. Island scenes reflect a picturesque tranquillity and yet within Mykonos Town the narrow streets that radiate from the harbour area carry a sense of chic elegance, packed as they are with exclusive boutiques and cosmopolitan restaurants. Mykonos is the perfect island to visit for those seeking a relaxing experience yet reserving the option to indulge in a little nightlife.
With a high concentration of top end locations there are numerous resorts specialising in exclusivity.
Rhodes is the biggest of the Dodecanese islands and according to legend was named after Rhodos, daughter of Poseidon.
