A vision in white and blue, Greece and its islands are the quintessential Mediterranean getaway for a fabulous luxury holiday, with fantastic weather, sparkling clear blue water, luxury hotels a plenty and laid-back island life. There's plenty for cultural types too with ancient ruins, pretty fishing villages and of course Athens, Greece's vibrant capital city well worth a night or two en route to the beach.
As for the islands, the big quesion is which is the best Greek Island to choose for a holiday? For couples, we love Santorini (for the best sunsets in Europe) and hip Mykonos - Grace Hotels have lovely properties on both islands and they come highly recommended. Top picks for a luxury family beach holiday in Greece would be Crete and Halkidiki, where there are some great hotel options for families with small children.
