Honey-dripping loukoumades, fruit-laden lemon trees, the crumbling walls of the Akropolis, and the blue-domed roofs of Santorini. Greece still has the best of civilization, whether you want to hop the islands or scale its mountains. For a real dose of glamor, we love the 100-year-old Poseidonian hotel on the exclusive islet of Spetses. Sip a frappe and play a slow game of backgammon at the charming port of Dapia.

Greece

EXPERIENCE GREEK CULTURE

Explore the home of the gods and delve deep into the mythology that underpins this Mediterranean paradise’s welcoming cities, white-stone ruins, and secluded isles. Fall in love with Greece whether you’re café-hopping in Athens, enjoying the stunning sunsets of Insta-perfect Santorini, or seeking romantic seclusion on Paros island.

DISCOVER ATHENS

Considered the spiritual home of democracy, Athens’ history means this modern-day subwaypolis has inherited a highlight reel of celebrated architecture and ruins. Journey between the Acropolis, Parthenon, and Temple of Zeus and grow engaged by the fascinating, mythical tales that lace the city’s colossal history – told to you by a hand-picked local historian. Stop to enjoy delicious, traditional souvlaki and gyros then wander toward boutique stores and local taverns before heading back to an evening of luxury atop your hotel’s private rooftop.

A LUXURY STAY IN MYKONOS

Mykonos is an island destination that never fails to remind us what we love about the Greek culture. It’s an irresistible combination of al-fresco tavernas, atmospheric beach clubs, and bright blue waters. A care-free, bohemian vibe has penetrated the islands luxury scene, where resorts and hotels have placed Mykonos as the reigning destination for experiencing Greece in style and sophistication.

PAROS

Straight out of an Aegean fairytale, this remote isle offers intriguing history, enchanting beaches, and awe-inspiring landscapes, complemented by the scent of native jasmine and bougainvillea. Whether you explore the maze of intricate side streets of Parikia, the whitewashed, marble town of Lefkes, or charming marinas of Naoussa, we’ll ensure there’s room to sit with the locals and enjoy fresh, local fish dishes. Think you’ll want a change of pace after that relaxation? Visit one of the remarkable golden beaches dotted along the island’s coast, from Santa Maria to Kalogeros, and try your hand at kitesurfing in the pristine bay.

EXPERIENCE WHITE-WASHED SANTORINI

A volcanic island located within the astonishing Aegean Sea, Santorini offers romance, rustic charm, and dramatic scenery, making it a must-visit when planning your Greek experience. Seek serenity within the vast, hidden stretches of exclusive beachfront, often only accessible by boat (or helicopter, if you’d prefer), or venture out in search of archaeology at the 5,000-year-old Minoan site of Akrotiri. As the evening draws in, drive or wander up the sloping cobbled streets toward the castle ruins. Here, you’ll find the most marvelous sunset as the golden light fades over the idyllic island’s blue-domed churches and whitewashed houses.

ISLAND HOP TO GREECE’S HIDDEN GEMS

Part of our attraction to Greece comes from the idea that some islands – and by some, we mean many of the 6,000 islands that Greece is comprised of – are still free of crowds and untainted by mass tourism. Islands like Folegandros and Sifnos feel like a couple of our best-kept secrets, but you don’t want to miss out on these smaller, authentic islands, known for their ancient villages, freshly-caught seafood, and rustic boutique hotels.

EXPLORE THE ANCIENT RUINS OF THE ACROPOLIS ALONGSIDE A LOCAL ARCHAEOLOGIST

Buried in culture, the Acropolis of Athens, the Temple of Parthenon, and Erechtheum are goldmines of history. Join a local archaeologist and explore the ancient ruins, immersing yourself in the magnificence of the structures. You’ll also be guided through the old town towards Lycabettus Hill where you can spend as long as you need looking at the modern city landscape and the ruined remains of the ancient civilization.

MASTER THE GASTRONOMIC EXCELLENCE OF SIFNOS

Discover the art of traditional Sifnos gastronomy and become a culinary genius with the guidance of Elies Resort’s master chefs. Experiment with the flavors of the famous isle to create your own version of the local lamb mastelo dish. Discover clay cooking and learn from the locals how each item and ingredient offers something different to the dish and your palate. This is a cooking class you’ll never forget: a Mediterranean education you can serve up at dinner parties for decades.

Absorb the stunning views over Santorini by helicopter

Care to make a glamorous entrance on Santorini? Embark on a private helicopter ride setting off from Mykonos toward the stunning beauty of the Cyclades and the sapphire waters that separate the two paradises. Circle the impressive white and blue Santorini landscape then head out as the sun rises over the sloping mountains and admire from above the feast of color that spills over the iconic architecture and clear sea.

HOTELS AND ACCOMODATIONS OVERVIEW

It should come as no surprise that a country 4,000 years in the making has perfected the art of luxury hotels and resorts. As if Zeus and Aphrodite conspired with the heavens, the luxury resorts both beachside and mid-city offer guests unrivaled hospitality, award-winning spas and restaurants, and views over the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea.

GREECE’S BEST INFINITY POOLS

An optical illusion that never ceases to excite us, there’s something dazzling about the blend of cool pool waters kissing the baby blue waters below and the cloudless sky above. At the likes of Danai Beach Resort in Halkidiki and the Grace property in Santorini, many villas showcase private infinity pools for guests to enjoy in total seclusion. At the Mykonos Grand, the main infinity pool molded into Cycladic Architecture peers out onto distant Greek islands and makes for the dreamiest spot for a sunset dip and sip.

SEE THE CITY FROM YOUR WINDOW

Ageless and mystifying, the city of Athens is a busy subwaypolis brimming with local food markets, lively rooftop gardens, and vivacious cafes. Rest your head at one of the city’s modern boutique hotels, where private balconies and panoramic restaurants sit directly in the shadows of the jaw-dropping Acropolis. Watch the Greek capital come alive every morning and evening from the comfort of your penthouse terrace while the Parthenon towers in your backyard.
