A pan-European escape affordable on any budget

A three and a half hour flight lands you in northwest Greece, where the small town of Parga has taken influences from nearby Albania and Italy across the water. Just off the coast is Corfu, boat trips to this historic and laid-back island are a cinch.

The picturesque bay of Parga houses a small and pretty town beach, with quaint buildings backing up the hillside beyond. A white church marks the mouth of the port, where locals fishing boats and coastal tours regularly set off. The plentiful Self Catering hotels in Parga allow you to have a cheap break and afford you the opportunity to try out some local recipes from restaurants, many of which are situated around the bay.

Parga's climate reaches its peak in July and August, with the mercury regularly rising above 30°C. May, June and October all nestle around the more comfortable 20 to 25°C mark, a slightly cooler temperature for those trying to avoid the school holiday rush for the sun.

Cheap days out in Parga

As well as its city beach, Parga has many excellent beaches a short distance away, such as Valtos, backed by greenery and Lichnos with lots of facilities and watersports. Leaving on a boat from Lichnos Beach, you can head to Aphrodite's Cave, where it's said the Greek Goddess used to bathe, and try out the waters for yourself. Another option for cooling down is heading inland to the Acheron River for paddling, kayaking, horse riding and even ziplining through the trees.

Up on a hillside, you can't miss Parga castle. Walk up to what remains of it – the cannons and stone walls –and you'll get outstanding views across Parga. You'll also be treated with some excellent waffles if you take a trip to the cafe at the base of the castle. Or go on a do-it-yourself tour around the Necromanteion of Acheron, a 30-minute drive from Parga. With a bit of online research in advance you'll find hidden meanings from the ruins – believed to sit on the entrance to Hades – and underground catacombs.

Parga doesn't have too many modern attractions, aside from watersports – that's its charm – but it does have a 12-hole mini golf course with a cafe.

Other popular destinations in Greece

Beyond Parga, cheap holidays are easily found in Greece. In fact, the town's right by Corfu, which may surprise you with its Italian influences. Another affordable place to let in some sunshine is relaxed Kefalonia. Back on the mainland, sleepy Halkidiki is a distinctive three-pronged peninsula that's as friendly to your budget as to your photo album, thanks to its ancient ruins and stirring sunsets.
