  • Amazingly serene...

    "My husband and I travelled to Kandersteg at the invitation of our good friends from Minnesota. They had come here many times and stayed at Pam and Bill's lovely and serene Adams Alpine Eden. They told is we would love it and they were right. I have read many of the other reviews and agree whole heartedly. The word that comes to mind for me is 'serene'. The apartment is so quiet and so well insulated that we never had to turn the heat on while we were here during the first two weeks of October. You had all the ambiance of a small Swiss village with the convenience of a train station within a five minute walk of the apartment. One last thing that impressed my husband and I was the warmth and friendliness of Pam and Bill. Their door was always open as we would pass by going in or coming out. Even though Bill had some health issues while we were here, Pam was more than helpful and always asking us about how our day went. We even dined together one evening at her first floor home and had a great night of conversation. I would highly recommend the Adams Alpine Eden for anyone in search of the ultimate Swiss experience."

  • Great choice for a family or group of friends

    "We had a hard time finding the place (for some reason there are two street numbers on the door), but once we did, we were delighted. Our group of seven friends loved this large, clean and classic apartment in the heart of the beautiful Eixample district. Not only is the location super convenient (we walked or took the subway everywhere), but the apartment has four, count 'em, bathrooms -- a much-apppreciated luxury. The kitchen is small but serviceable -- you won't be cooking any big meals in there, but it's fine for breakfast. We also liked the communal rooftop deck with its great views at sunset. Katje, our greeter, responded immediately whenever we had a question. There's a handy market just down the street where we bought our morning yogurt and fruit, and a larger supermarket and lovely flower market in the next block. All in all, we can wholeheartedly recommend this place for large families or groups of friends."

Greece Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Travel to Greece Vacation Rentals

Greece enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate with little regional variation. Summers are typically hot and dry, and rain occurs mostly in the cooler winter months. For at least seven months of the year, Greece enjoys a warm climate. The most pleasant months are generally May to June and September to October. July and August can get particularly hot, and you will find that most locals make use of a midday siesta to avoid the extreme heat. Many shops and restaurants close between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. which can be inconvenient if you are not aware of this. If you want to enjoy the warm climate and beaches, summertime is definitely the best time to visit Greece. If you have more of an interest in Greek culture and history then you may enjoy traveling in the off-peak season. Many of the major sites are found in and around the capital Athens which can get very crowded during the busy tourist season. It’s often more pleasant to travel around in slightly cooler weather and you can linger longer at the sites and attractions that interest you.

Traveling to Greece Villas

To get to Greece, there are number of different transport options. For travelers from North America or northern Europe, it will be most convenient to fly into Athens and from there connect on to your domestic destination. The Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport is located in Sparta which is just outside of Athens. The airport is the country’s busiest and hosts several international airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights between Athens and most European cities. Travelers from North America and other parts of the world may need to route via London, Amsterdam or Madrid and then connect to Athens. For visitors from the eastern parts of Europe, there are good rail connections with Thessaloniki which is Greece’s main rail hub. During the summer months, there are frequent ferry connections between Greece and its neighboring countries. Many cruise ships also visit the Greek isles and this is a great way to explore the Mediterranean coast.

Depending on where you are traveling in Greece, there is a wide variety of different attractions available. If you plan to spend some time in and around Athens, you can enjoy the many ancient sites the city has to offer. One of the most famous places to visit is the Acropolis which is the site of the sacred rock. This monument dominates the Athenian skyline and can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. It also contains the ruins of the Parthenon. The Agora was once the core of ancient Athens. It was in this large open space that many commercial, political and social events took place. It was turned into a residential area in the 19th century. Although today it is mostly ruins, there are still several interesting sites worth visiting. Delphi is located approximately 100 miles northwest of Athens. It was once considered to be cultural heart of Greece and is linked to several well-known Greek legends.
