Book a luxury holiday in Greece with Small Luxury Hotels of the World for an odyssey of olive-brushed landscapes and ancient art. Indulgence comes naturally in this land of good living where you’ll linger over extended fish lunches and relax on secluded island beaches.
Luxury city breaks in Greece
Tread in the footsteps of philosophical titans like Plato and Aristotle at Athens’ Ancient Agora and Acropolis, topped by the iconic Parthenon temple. As the heat subsides, style-conscious Athenians browse Kolonaki's designer boutiques and dine in see-and-be-seen seafood restaurants by the harbour. Exquisite Byzantine churches and elegant squares are your backdrop in the vibrant port city of Thessaloniki, where relaxed meze, ouzo and melancholic rembetika music are the order of the evening.
Luxury Greek Island holidays in the Cyclades
An exclusive clifftop restaurant is the place to watch the sun sink into the sea behind Santorini’s smouldering volcano and sugar-cube houses. Adopt a siga, siga (slowly, slowly) attitude in Skiathos, famed for its 60 powdery white beaches flanked by pine-clad hills and cobalt waters. Or sip cocktails until the sun rises spectacularly above the Aegean on glamorous, cosmopolitan Mykonos or in Paros’ laid-back fishing port, Naoussa.
Luxury Greek holidays in Crete and Rhodes
Crete's history is revealed in 3500-year-old frescoes at the Minoan Palace of Knossos, birthplace of the legendary Minotaur. Snap photogenic sunsets in Elounda, a royal favourite, before dining on gourmet seafood in nearby Aghios Nikolaos. Stay in a luxury Greek hotel in Rhodes to see Lindos' hilltop Acropolis and medieval Rhodes Town. A private boat lets you explore the islands' caves and crystal waters at your leisure.
Discover your own Greek idyll with Small Luxury Hotels of the World – a Cycladic village with Aegean views in Mykonos, a boutique design hotel in Athens, or a 17th-century cave house overlooking Santorini’s caldera.
