Overview of Greek Islands
From a quiet retreat on the unspoilt island of Paxos with its lush greenery and beautiful olive groves to stylish beachside havens in trendy Mykonos, our Greek Island luxury villas portfolio offers something for everyone. With an unparalleled level of indulgence, it will allow you to enjoy your chosen location in the heart of the Mediterranean in style.
The Greek Islands are divine and scattered across the glistening Mediterranean Sea. Each island is unique, but they all share the warm, sunny climate and delicious Greek food.
Crete is one of the famous Greek Islands, combining a tranquil setting, picturesque sceneries, Ancient Greek mythology and culture, and vibrant nightlife. It is believed that the Greek God Zeus was born in the Diktaean Cave at Mount Dikti. The archaeological Minoan sites are a popular tourist attraction for visitors, along with the most significant natural palm forest in Europe, the Palm Beach of Vai and the Venetian old city and castle.
Within the turquoise Mediterranean waters that surround Crete and other Greek Islands are magnificent sea habitats that visitors might not be aware of. There’s the endangered Mediterranean monk seal, dolphins, whales, loggerhead sea turtles and hammerhead sharks plus more.
Although each island has a traditional dish, you can expect to sample famous Greek dishes across them all including fresh Greek salads, stuffed vine leaves (dolmades), souvlaki, pastitsio (Greek lasagna), an assortment of fresh fish including squid and octopus, moussaka, mezes and fasolada – the national food of the Greeks. For something sweeter, baklava is a must, along with galaktoboureko (Greek custard pie), kataifi and loukoumades. The Greeks are recognised for their food, so you must sample some traditional cuisines during your visit; it’s a big part of their culture.
