Greece: A Holiday Haven

Greece has a magnetic pull for holidaymakers, offering an array of beaches, a welcoming culture, and abundant sunshine. Spanning the mainland and over 200 inhabited islands, Greece presents endless opportunities for exploration.

 

The Best Time to Visit

For ideal weather, consider visiting in June or October to avoid the scorching temperatures of July and August. Flights are also more affordable during these shoulder seasons, with return fares starting at around £100 in October from many European airports.

 

Avoiding the Crowds

To dodge the crowds, opt for quieter months like May, early June, late September, or October. During these times, direct flights to many Greek airports are readily available.

 

Corfu: Ideal for Families and Foodies

Corfu, with its short flight time from the UK, is a haven for families seeking convenience. The island's well-connected airport and accessible resorts make it a popular choice. While the tourist scene is well-established, Corfu's vast landscapes and charming villages offer opportunities for exploration. Must-visit spots include Corfu Town, the scenic north and west coasts, and nearby Paxos.

 

Best Time to Visit Corfu

For warm, beach-ready weather, plan your trip between June and August. However, if you prefer fewer crowds, consider visiting in May, when self-catering apartment holidays are more affordable.

 

Exploring Off-the-Beaten-Track: Paxos Island

Paxos Island beckons travellers seeking tranquillity and natural beauty. Accessible from Corfu via a short hydrofoil or ferry ride, Paxos offers pristine beaches and lush olive groves. This quiet island is perfect for leisurely strolls and dining at charming tavernas. Don't miss the quaint villages of Loggos, Lakka, and Gaios, as well as the stunning cliffs along the west coast.

 

Best Time to Visit Paxos

For optimal weather, visit Paxos between June and August. Alternatively, explore in May, early June, or September for pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists.
