How long

8 nights ideal length

Spend 8 glorious Grecian nights on these three islands surrounded by cobalt blue waters and dramatic rocky coastlines. We’ll fly you away from the stresses of life and you can flop down by the pool and relax because we’ve handpicked some of the most romantic island spots in Greece. Once you’ve worked up some energy to leave your peaceful hotel, we’ve found interesting sites, towns and naturally, endless beaches for you to amble along.

Find peace in Paros

Starting in Athens, your first isle is just a short flight away. Touchdown on the ruggedly sunsoaked Paros and feel yourself slip immediately into Cycladic life as you check in at Parilio for two nights. With a name that pays tribute to Helios, the Greek God of sunshine – and a crucifix shaped pool perfect for worshipping him from – we’re convinced that the sun really does shine that little bit brighter here. Make the most of it over the next few days as you set off exploring the island’s pine-fringed coves and whitewashed fishing villages in the company of private guides. For hiking, might we suggest you follow the Byzantine Way whilst for a swim in the clearest waters you’ll ever see, head just a short stroll north to Kolympithres Bay. Ensuring your island hopping experience starts in earnest however, we’ll be sure to arrange a day spent exploring neighbouring Antiparos. Smaller in stature than Paros but home to picturesque landscapes and a good dose of history, it’s the perfect day out.

Start Planning

Slip into life on Sifnos

For the next part of your trip, you’ll then venture to lesser-known Sifnos, where you’ll spend three nights at our best-kept secret; Elies Resort. Here you can experience traditional Greek Island life and discover Sifnos’ gastronomic excellence with a few cooking lessons, which incorporate an authentic mix of the island’s local produce. Once fed and watered we’ll let you in on our favourite beaches to explore or get lost in rustic Sifnos by walking the area’s endless country trails and ancient villages atop its beautiful yellow and white, coastal hillside.

Seductive Santorini

Your trip ends with a flourish on Santorini, where you’ll arrive by boat before heading to the town of Oia and the luxurious Andronis Luxury Suites for a final three splendid nights. With traditional Aegean white-washed architecture, these suites are truly serene. Hideaway here with your loved one and bathe in your private cave pool, overlooking the island’s crater bay. Indulge in some freshly caught seafood for lunch followed by an afternoon in the spa. You’ll be feeling fully revitalised and ready to climb to the pinnacle of the town where a ruined castle rests and you can enjoy fantastic views as the sunsets over your Arcadia.

In the following days explore the rest of the old town’s cobbled streets and blue domed churches or take a short drive to the 5000-year-old Minoan site of Akrotiri; a kind of Greek-Pompeii where you can walk along the streets and into the painted houses of the ancient site. There are plenty of little beaches to discover as well, some of which can only be reached by boat, or add some glamour and take the hotel’s helicopter to a cove of your choice. We can’t think of a more fitting way to end your time on the Greek islands.
