Experience Greece from vacation home rentals

Greece needs little introduction. Lying on the fringes of Europe, the Land of Gods has a rich history matched by few. Most will have seen the iconic photos of whitewashed homes tumbling down the barren rocky cliffs on the Aegean islands, the sun-soaked beaches and the piercing blue skies, but it would take a lifetime to truly understand this complex nation. There are as many Greece vacation rentals dotted around the country as there are olive groves and when you stay in one, whether it's in Athens or on the islands, you can begin to discover this ancient culture.

Things to do

Attractions near vacation rentals in Greece

Greece's ancient history dates back much further than the original Olympics, more than 2,000 years ago. Nothing sums up this sophisticated culture and exquisite architecture more than the iconic Acropolis in Athens. That said, the mainland and islands teem with ancient ruins. For something a little more unusual, you can visit the old UNESCO World Heritage monasteries that sit atop narrow rocky outcrops. Alternatively, book a Greece vacation rental in the northern city of Thessaloniki to explore the Byzantine churches and arguably the best food in the country.

Activities

Things to do near vacation homes in Greece

It's simply impossible to list all the things you can do in Greece. Dedicated beach bums can invade the gorgeous beaches to sunbathe, perhaps ambling down to the water occasionally to cool off. If you're a certified adrenaline-junkie, you won't be disappointed when you stay at a Greece vacation rental. Launch a kitesurf to fly across the water's surface, or powder up to rock scale the craggy coastal cliff faces. Greece is dotted with rows of vineyards and if you visit one of the wineries, you can sample some fine vintages.

Weather

Local weather near your summer rental in Greece

The summer break sees the biggest influx, with vacationers descending upon the islands and coast to lap up the almost guaranteed blue skies. Top that with Greeks escaping the heat of the city and things can get awfully crowded. Those in the know book their Greece vacation rentals in the late spring and early fall, when the climate is even more agreeable and the throngs have all returned home on their cruise ships. The weather is still warm enough to eat al fresco, the sea is still just as inviting and the prices have taken a nosedive.

Natural features

Greece is a haven for birdwatchers

It might not be the first place that springs to mind when you think of wildlife, but Greece teems with animals and they don't keep it hidden. On the mainland's interior, it's possible to spot wild brown bears and packs of wolves. In fact, there are more than 100 species of mammal in the country. Bird watchers should be particularly taken when they stay in a Greece vacation rental. The country is home to more than 400 species of bird. If staying on the islands, you may very well bump into playful dolphins or curious Mediterranean monk seals when you swim.

Beaches

Best beaches near vacation homes in Greece

The beautiful beaches and turquoise waters of Greece are one of its biggest draws. Vacation homes are available near places like Balos Beach, a lagoon beach with exotic surrounds and white sands, and the Ionian Islands, a set of islands with white-sand beaches and clear blue waters for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. You'll also like Myrtos Beach, a picturesque and undeveloped beach with sheer limestone cliffs.

Food and drink

Must-try foods in Greece

Greek cuisine is a Mediterranean style and uses vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, wine, and meat prominently in traditional recipes. It is strongly influenced by Ottoman cuisine, so you'll often find baklava, tzatziki, gyro, dolmades, and moussaka in restaurants near your vacation rental. Greek food is also influenced by Italian culinary culture, so it includes several varieties of pasta as a base for recipes.
