  • Perfect stay for a couple

    "We agree with anything positive that is already in the earlier reviews, there is no need to repeat them, the land lady Olivella, is still there and she is as helpful as ever. She provides on request an outstanding limosine service from and to the airport, so that you, the unknowing visitor is not ripped off by all too clever taxi drivers. A thing that happens all too easily and often at any airport. We hope to return."

  • Perfect Place

    "Our stay in this apartment in Spello was really great. The apartment is situated only a block from the main square, where you can find shops, grocery stores, banks and the post office. The apartment is as cute as it looks in the pictures, with a brick vaulted ceiling that was built centuries ago. The bed and the chairs were very comfortable (we slept like babies). The flat screen TV and the Wifi worked great the entire time. Views of the Umbrian countryside from the large patio were as advertised! The bathroom and shower are a bit tight but were perfectly adequate for us, with good water pressure and fixtures. The kitchen is adequately supplied and made us feel like real Italian residents. We can’t say enough about Roberto, the owner of this property. He was totally helpful and congenial in every way. We are so glad we picked Spello for our extended stay. The convenient train station allowed us to reach many hill towns. It is just the right mix of locals and tourists to give the amenities you want (restaurants, shops, sights) while feeling like a local. And, it has that medieval feeling you want from an Umbrian hill town!"

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.
