This is why I love Greece

In my lifetime (and I am not that young anymore), I have travelled quite a bit and visited my fair share of places. I can say, in all honesty, that Greece is my favourite place. To be more precise, one cannot classify Greece as just one place. That would be unfair. In such a small area, this amazing country has such a wide collection of holiday resorts that entire continents would envy. And they are all so different from each other.

When is the best time to travel to Greece?

Tourist season in Greece is during summer and it starts as early as April (in southern Greece) and May, for the rest of the country. It ends for most people during the first days of September while for some others it goes on till the middle of October. In Crete and Rhodes, tourists season stops only for 4 months a year, from late autumn till the end of winter.

The tourist season is divided in three sections, low, middle and high season (usually mid July till August 20th).

How to choose when to travel to Greece

It all depends on how you want to spend your holidays. Low season (usually from April till the first days of June) is the best time to travel to Greece if you want to spend as little money as possible and enjoy a crowd free holiday. Weather is cooler, beaches are your to enjoy, service is better (less customers to satisfy) and people are more relaxed.

High season is the most expensive of them all but you can still find good quality, affordable accommodation by slightly changing your requirements. This is the period when you will have to share a place at your favourite beach with other people and to wait a bit more to get served at the restaurants and bars. But, you know what some people say: the more the merrier.

If you want a bit of both, then try the middle season. Whenever you decide to travel to Greece, know that it is the beautiful country and its great people that will make your holiday special. Rest assured that if you keep an open mind and explore true Greece, it will be a lot more than a wonderful holiday; it will be a great experience.

Visiting breathtaking Milos

Although I have been visiting the Cyclades islands for years, my first visit to Milos took me completely by surprise. Why? Because everybody talked about Mykonos, Santorini, Paros and Koufonissia but no one discussed about Milos.

It was a friend who convinced me to go there, claiming that I would find the best beaches in Greece. And he was so right! Continue reading Visiting breathtaking Milos
