Perhaps you’re after an intimate break on secluded Paxos? Want to dance the night away among the whitewashed walls in Mykonos? Maybe marvelling at the ancient Parthenon in old Athens is more up your street? Or how about a fun-filled family stay on the island of Naxos? You’ll find an idyllic getaway that ticks all the boxes this summer with Olympic Holidays.

It’s unsurprising that a land blessed by the gods would be a haven for gourmands too. Under the Mediterranean sun, superlative ingredients are nurtured in fertile soil by dedicated local producers. From the mountains to the crystal-clear seas, there’s an outstanding larder to pick from and a plethora of dishes that need no introduction – from souvlaki topped with crumbly feta and cooling tzatziki, to coastal delicacies of grilled octopus, there’s plenty to sample. Flock to scenic
Crete to experience age-old olive pressing techniques at first hand or island-hop to the slow-living village of Exo Chora in Zante, where olive trees date back 2,000 years – click here to find out more.

Start your day with sweet figs and a dollop of creamy Greek yoghurt topped with a generous drizzle of Greek honey – whether that’s the thyme variety from the mountains, pine honey from Zante or a citrus one from Epirus, the Peloponnese and Crete. While midday meals might look like a fresh seafood meze washed down with a glass of crisp local assyrtiko. Olympic Holidays have scoured their Greek homeland to bring fine-dining right to your doorstep too. Dive into modern Mediterranean dishes from chef Sifis Manouselis at the award-winning Black Rock Restaurant in Santorini Secret Suites & Spa, and don’t miss Five Senses at Lindos Blu in Rhodes. Take a look for yourself here.

With a string of hand-picked luxury hotels and villas in over 40 of the most sought-after destinations, why choose just one? Olympic Holidays' tailormade island-hopping packages ensure you get more out of your Greek experience – they are the island specialists, after all. Couple up stunning Santorini and Mykonos, postcard-perfect Kefalonia and Zante or medieval Rhodes and Symi. With so many options, your summer paradise awaits.
