There is the mainland of Greece with its capital Athens and then the islands; some 1,500 of them including Corfu, Paxos, Ithaca, Cepphalonia, Zakinthos, Crete, Kos, Rhodes, Andros, Mykonos, Skiathos, Skopelos and Samos. Because of its location, the weather is warm throughout the year and in Anthens in mid summer, temperatures can rise to 37 degrees C. Here you have the heritage, The Acropolis and other ruins.

The islands vary a lot; if you want sandy beaches then Skiathos is the place to go. You will not often find many golf courses or tennis courts and private swimming pools are much rarer than in some other popular holiday locations. However, you will get the magical feeling of being part of the community and being made very welcome.
