The island mentality

Greece is blessed with 2,000 registered islands, of which more than 200 are inhabited. The truly fascinating thing about these islands is each and every one of them has their own unique culture, which is a result of their importance to the various Greek empires in classical eras.

The island of Corfu, for example, is heavily influenced by nearby Italy due to its past Venetian occupation and humid climate. Whereas Crete, which is far west of the mainland, is very much its own culture, with different social etiquette and community values to many of the other islands.

The differences extend to little islands like Lesvos too, whose proximity to the Middle East makes it a much more cosmopolitan area, with particularly strong influence drawn from Turkey. Holidays to Greece always bring new things – wherever you go, the culture, climate and people are different, so there’s always something new to learn or try.

One thing all the islands share is a laid-back attitude. A Greek does things at his or her own pace, and by and large will not rush, panic or compromise if they do not judge it necessary. It takes a little getting used to, but once you get into the flow of things on the islands you’ll wonder how you ever lived any other way. Plus, it makes them some of the most friendly people you will ever meet. Book your Greece holiday and get exploring.

    Explore Greece with ease

    Greece’s sprawling landscape is incredibly diverse, with snowy mountains, sun-kissed beaches, secluded islands and bustling cities, all within easy reach of each other. Transport between these locations is generally very cheap, with coaches running regularly for tourists and locals alike, and ferry connections between the islands. Why visit just one when you can have a taste of them all! Hop between Mykonos, Santorini and Naxos to see those iconic white buildings with blue domes, or Corfu, Zakynthos and Lefkas for rolling green hills and charming natural beauty.

    Greece holidays cater for all holidaymakers and being so easy to explore, it’s the perfect way to find which islands best suit you. Book your holiday to Greece and explore as much of it as you possibly can with Holiday Hypermarket.

    Incredible local cuisine

    The climate in Greece yields ingredients that are juicier, richer and larger than almost anywhere else in Europe and the menus reflect this. With a culinary tradition that is based on simple ingredients of meats, fish, cheese, vegetables and herbs, all of which are found in British food but taste nothing like anything you’ve ever eaten back home, the food will certainly be one of the many highlights.

    Our holidays to Greece offer you the chance to experience traditional Greek restaurants which are also known as tavernas, and these specialise in all the classics – Moussaka, Stifado, Kalamari and Souvlaki are top of the list to try. For breakfast, try a spinach or feta pastry and iced coffee. Lunch is a cheap lamb wrap from a street vendor, and for dinner, a hearty meat and tomato stew or an entire swordfish, washed down with ouzo or retsina, and baclava for dessert.

    With a holiday to Greece, you don’t just explore new places, but new tastes and flavours too, and we guarantee you’ll love it.

    A beach lifestyle

    The sheer amount of islands to choose from on Greece holidays is outdone only by the amount of beaches. On every island you will find the popular resorts with loungers and parasols galore, as well as a simply beautiful view. However, just down the road you’ll stumble across your very own strip of paradise, in the form of a secluded cove for you and your travelling companions to relax on, away from anybody else – like your own private beach!

    It is the variety on the coasts of Greece that brings people to the country again and again. From beach parties to scuba-diving hotspots, energising sunrises to sleepy sunsets, you’ll find there’s a beach out there with your name written in its sand. Plus, with great tourist coach services on most islands, you’ll find it easy to dart between them at your leisure. The great thing about holidays to Greece is that you can stay in your favourite spot and soak up the sun there or you can try new places and new scenery each and every day – all of which are just as beautiful as the next.

    It's all ancient history

    Of course, Greece is most famous for its classical heritage, its rich and fascinating ancient history. It is said Greeks were the inventors of theatre, democracy, court systems, philosophy, the Olympics – and even screws. As such, our contemporary society is literally built on things that Greece thought up, and the proof is in the pudding once you get there. When you’re on holiday in Greece you’ll be astounded with the variety and number of things to do, see and learn about – you’ll probably have to come back again to complete it all!

    Marvel for hours in the marble towers, forts, temples that have been crumbled over time and through wars waged throughout Greece’s history. Every island has its unique story to tell, and history lovers will be itching to visit each and every one to see just how it fits into the astonishing story of Ancient Greece – a story you could become a part of by visiting today.
