Where ancient worlds, picture perfect villages and idyllic beaches meet
Greece’s Mediterranean climate and captivating culture are just a couple of the reasons why thousands of visitors flock to its shores every year. With an abundance of stunning natural scenery, fascinating historical sites, intriguing mythology and flavoursome cuisine, it’s not difficult to see why this archipelago is one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. Treat yourself to one of Azure’s luxury hotels in Greece for a trip you’ll never forget.
With their idyllic shores, beautiful towns and sleepy fishing villages, the Greek islands can make the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Each island is unique, with its own distinctive landscape, cuisine and culture. For those wanting an active break, there are pursuits on offer ranging from diving and kitesurfing to cycling and trekking, while nature lovers can explore lush forests and keep a lookout for creatures including sea turtles and dolphins. For some unadulterated rest and relaxation, make your way to the many world-class beaches, while if you want to step back in time, you can explore the ancient Greek ruins and Minoan palaces that dot the islands.
Crete, with its mountainous interior, abundant vineyards and golden beaches, is a popular place for a relaxing break. Explore the picturesque town of Elounda on the north coast. With its handsome fishing harbour, lively centre and stylish eateries and bars, it’s not hard to see why this spot attracts discerning holidaymakers.
Rhodes is also on many people’s travel wish-list, with its glorious shorelines and medieval Old Town featuring charming traditional cobbled streets and classical architecture. The island also boasts crystal clear waters and tranquil beaches, as well as picture-perfect towns and ancient ruins.>
Corfu is home to top-class resorts too and there is plenty to explore on the island, from its fertile, verdant interior to its sheltered coves.
Greece’s capital city, Athens, combines ancient history with modern-day developments. Must-see attractions include the awe-inspiring Acropolis, comprising a 100-metre-tall rock of limestone, the famous ruins of the Parthenon, Erechtheion, the Temple of Athena Nike and Propylaia. Visit the Acropolis Museum and National Archaeological Museum for a further taste of the country’s fascinating past.
The rest of the hilly Greek mainland is home to even more ancient attractions, including the spectacular oracle at Delphi, the surreal monasteries of Meteora and the Byzantine mosaics at the Osios Loukas monastery.
For some of the country’s best beaches and an array of other attractions, make your way to Halkidiki in the north. As well as sparkling sands, this region offers scenic vineyards, historical sites and terrain that’s ideal for exploring by bike.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
