Greece is a beautiful place that has a lot of reasons attached that makes it a place worth visit. Not only its stunning beaches but also the superb mountain scenic views, great food and what not? When I was on my tour to Greece, I found it the most serene place till date. Its exposure to natural views gives immense pleasure to all those looking for serenity and also helps them burn out all their stress of the daily life.
If you are planning for some kind of villa holidays in Greece then here are some tips that you can consider while travelling around this beautiful country.
Share the wealth: Although most of the people find it simple to book resort packages during their visit to any place but while your visit to Greece, it is imperative for you to explore as there is lot more to eat to visit and to explore other than the stays in resorts. For food lovers, there are numerous tavernas to try and for people seeking seclusion, Greece has a lot for everyone. Planning stay in individual villas will open various options to eat, to roam and to explore.
Avoid peak season: While making your travel bookings, ensure that you avoid visiting Greece at the peak time as it will be having a lot of visitors during that time and it is rarely possible to find accommodation of your choice. Unless you have to visit during the summer holidays, it is better to visit anytime other than late July to end of August. Every place, villas or tavernas, gets overcrowded at the peak time and it becomes quite impossible to enjoy holidays at this period of the year.
Wander around the mainland: Just do not associate Greece solely with its islands. The mainland has a lot to offer from Pindos mountain range in the north to empty golden beaches. Also, this place is surrounded with a great number of archaeological sites to have a look at. You can communicate easily through the comprehensive bus network with local services radiating out to villages.
Eat and drink like a local: Eating is one of the crucial activities that are a part of a human’s day to day routine. This beautiful and serene place has many Tavernas located by the seaside wherein you can enjoy your meals and the beautiful naturistic views and the water dancing on the beats of your songs. Consider looking for the restaurants that serves best local food and also remember that Greek people eat late and this is why there are many restaurants that stay open during late night hours.
Embrace Greek time: People in Greece are not that much punctual and there is a healthy Mediterranean belief that the most of the things can be put off and nothing needs to be done in hurry. So do not expect on-time services in a restaurant or transportation to be there on time always.
