The mythical land of Greece. Filled with passionate natives and divine cuisine, its rich heritage spills over into the distinctive contours of the Dodecanese archipelago. The romantic cylindrical windmills of Mykonos and the endangered seals and sea turtles of Zakynthos form just part of the Ionian Island’s vivid story.
Across the country, sunlight-punctured, reflective waters project themselves onto the bodies of gleaming, white boats. Friendly tavernas with thatched canopies and dainty, wooden walkways decorate the infinite coastlines. Eateries throughout the country serve up Greek delicacies like crumbly feta, mouth-watering souvlaki and sun-ripened olives.
With honey-soaked baklava for afters, you’ll be just appeased enough for a huge slice of history. Whether it’s Athens for the Acropolis, or Olympian ruins, this country serves up an archaeological banquet.
The island of Milos’ surreal geological landscape bestows upon its spectators the most staggering bleached rock formations. Dotted around the coast of Milos are little blue boat garages, thoughtfully complimenting the ocean’s gradient of colour, from the cornflour shores to the midnight deeps. Brilliantly pigmented canoes furnish the beaches, and a quirky restaurant serves bread in bags slung over guest-inscripted chairs.
For larger beach territory, the curvaceous and classy Voidokilia is an omega-shaped, sand-filled sanctuary. Out in the wildlife-packed mountains of Epirus are archaic stone bridges, the deepest gorge in the world, wolves and bears. In amongst all that wilderness lie sleepy villages and 15th-century monasteries waiting to be discovered.
