Layers of History, Mythology and PhilosophyDelve into a land steeped in thousands of years of history
Nestled between the crystal blue waters of the Ionian and Aegean Seas, the Greek mainland is a world of mythical beauty ready to be explored. To appreciate the Greek mainland fully it’s recommended that guests travel as widely as possible as there are many sights to see and experiences to share. From the varied coastline to the cities, towns and villages, you’ll discover the warmth and charm of the Greek people on an amazing odyssey into this Mediterranean nation.
Varied natural wonders
Luxurious vacations on the Greek mainland offer an intensely varied landscape for your eyes to behold. Wander the powder white sand peninsula beaches that stretch out across Halkidiki and appreciate Aegean views. Stroll through the pine scented forests of Sithonia to discover hidden coves and sparkling creeks. The Pelion Peninsula presents an almost Eden-like beauty with fruit orchards, wild nut trees and olive groves lorded over by mountain peaks like the mighty Pourianos Stavros. All are beautifully bordered by the curving coastline and stunning shorefront. For snow and skiing Parnassus is a must.
Your visit to the Greek mainland doesn’t have to be restricted to land either. There are plenty of opportunities to gain the oceanic perspective with coastal charter boats and from the deck of luxury yachts. Fantastic opportunities for diving are also available as well as exclusive fishing trips. Explore the islets and coveted coves of the Greek mainland and uncover its secrets.
From luxury hotels to exquisite villas hidden away in lush hilltop olive groves, you’ll discover a wondrous array of well-appointed accommodation when you’re visiting the Greek mainland. Alternatively, there are plenty of opportunities for high-end camping in exotic out-of-the-way locations. A cornucopia for fresh produce, the Greek mainland offers a banquet of delights for travellers in search of rich flavours. From the diverse selections of olives to the sensational salads bursting with freshness, your taste buds are in for treat. Smell hot oven baked breads infused with local herbs long before they reach your table, while traditional dishes can be found served in local villages. Freshly caught seafood grilled to perfection and the bean soup fasolada are not to be missed.

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.
