What is Greece to you?

Delicious traditional food prepared with love and fresh ingredients.
Long sunny days spent walking around ancient ruins which still breathe history and have a million tales to share.
Warm sweet nights filled with laughter, passionate talk and dancing with friends until dawn.
Fascinating cities where cultural events walk hand in hand with bustling nightlife.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the best Greece has to offer like a local.

Are you dreaming of endless stretches of golden sand kissed by emerald waters? Or do deep blue waves crashing on magnificent black rock formations thrill you more? Either way, we can all agree that the Greek Islands’ popularity stems mainly from their beautiful beaches. However, there’s a lot more to the Greek Islands than that and Andros is a fine example of this. With a network of about 160km of paths, hiking on Andros Island is yet another reason to visit.

When we think summer vacation in Greece, our minds drift to some small island in the Aegean Sea. One of those windswept rock formations with white-washed houses perched on steep cliff sides. The kind of island one needs to spend a minimum of 6 long hours on board a ferry before they can swim into its deep blue waters. This is why we were always skeptical about Elafonisos, the tiny island overlooking the southern tip of the Peloponnese. It ticked none of our boxes. Given its proximity to the mainland, we didn’t even know if it qualified as an island to begin with.

Have you ever had a random, rather meaningless childhood memory that has stayed with you a lot longer than expected? I must have been about 10 years old when a wine commercial on TV literally haunted me. It was about a young couple reminiscing their summer vacation in Monemvasia Castle. The story followed the two lovebirds as they ran about the narrow cobbled streets trying to find refuge from a sudden summer shower. Once the fortress town appeared on my TV screen, I was doomed. I knew I had to visit.
