Discover boutique hotels in Greece

If you like your feta drizzled with olive oil, fish cooked in ouzo, and holidays laced with sunshine, chances are you’ll find your joy somewhere from the Acropolis to the Aegean Sea. Step into the ring where Olympians first competed, trek up volcanoes and sail around strings of dramatic islands floating in piercing blue waters. Whether you're an ancient history buff, a major adrenaline junkie, ouzo enthusiast or beach connoisseur, make like lightning and head to Greece.

Destinations in Greece

  • Centre of the ancient world, Athens is every bit as glorious and atmospheric as you'd imagine.
  • The cypress-studded island of Corfu, just off the northwest coast of Greece, is surrounded by the crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea.
  • Thank Zeus (or Hera, or Poseidon) that Theseus dealt with that pesky minotaur, because now the coast is clear for the rest of us to enjoy Crete in peace.
  • Over Santorini? Meet its sister island, the quiet and less touristy Folegandros, less than an hour away by catamaran.
  • Aquamarine skies, turquoise waters, crystal-white sands: Halkidiki's beautiful Blue Flag beaches are underpopulated, unspoilt and utterly Instagram-worthy.
  • The Greek gods themselves couldn’t help but find the Ionian Islands a paradise: boutique hotels and secluded villas; seas as clear-cut as a diamond; and miles of soft-as-velvet sands.
  • With its sugar-cube structures, curving white-sand coast and A-list-attracting credentials, Mykonos is the jet-set’s Cycladic isle of choice.
  • Greek island Naxos is dotted with sandy stretches of beach, ancient ruins and blue-and-white Byzantine churches.
  • Picturesque Paros operates on a decidedly lower key than its more crowded Cycladic cousins, but once you get on her lulling level, the island will unveil her unadorned charms: traditional tavernas, rolling hills and a bounty of beaches to bask on.
  • Named after an ancient hero who won a chariot race and then a kingdom, the finger-shaped Peloponnese is a timeless corner of mainland Greece…
  • From the indigo waters of the caldera to the snowdrifts of cliff-hugging cubist villas, Santorini’s beauty today is as dramatic as its volcanic genesis.
  • Holidays to Greek islands aren’t exactly a new idea, but today's Skiathos is home to a wildly romantic, family-ready resort, extolling a brand of luxury unheard of in these parts for decades.
  • Accessible only by sea, it’s easy to see why Spetses is the retreat of choice for affluent Athenians. The best way to enjoy the town’s mansion-strewn skyline is from offshore: waterskiing, sailing or swimming in the sun-sparkled Aegean.
  • Cradling the crook of an Aegean bay, Thessaloniki is a beguiling port city with a stormy past and vibrant, cosmopolitan present.
