Luxury Greece Holidays 2024/2025
Greece holidays are awash with varied landscapes and experiences. From hiking to the top of ancient ruins and exploring historical cities to soaking up the sun on white sand beaches and chartering a private yacht across cerulean seas.
At Scott Dunn, you don’t have to choose what type of holiday to Greece you want. We’ll help you combine a city and beach holiday in Greece to experience a little of both. Or, for something indulgent and relaxing, we’ll help you plan a Greece Island holiday full of sun, sea and sand on a luxurious island-hopping excursion. Families, friends and couples alike can sail across azure waters, discovering islands like Crete, Mykonos and Santorini, with their endless bays and picturesque rocky coastlines, soaking up the sun and making memories to last a lifetime.
If you’re more of an adventure seeker, you might enjoy an active holiday, combining hillside hiking with an exploration of Greece’s many archaeological sites and famous monuments.
No luxury holiday to Greece would be complete without discovering some of its excellent local cuisine. Be sure to try the locally caught seafood, freshly grilled meat, and delicious moussaka during your visit, as well as lighter bites like Souvlaki, taramasalata, and tzatziki with olives and warm bread.

FAQs about your luxury holiday to Greece
Weather-wise, Greece is arguably a year-round travel destination. However, due to the fact most of the islands shut down during winter, we suggest travelling from early May to mid-October.
While you can still tour the Peloponnese during winter – getting the chance to view some of Greece’s most famous ruins without the rush of tourism – early May is particularly beautiful as well as mid-September after the summer rush.
Learn more about the best time to visit Greece.
Greece has a Mediterranean climate, offering long hot, dry summers and mild and wet winters.
When travelling during our recommended times above, you should expect temperatures of around 24 degrees in May, with peak temperatures in the low to high 30s throughout July to September.
For travellers wanting something a bit more pared back and less travelled, or have visited Greece’s islands on holiday before, take the time to check out Paros. While it’s a smaller island, it boasts an authentic feel that can get lost in the larger islands and offers intimate beautiful beaches.
If you’re looking for buzz and to liven up your holiday, Mykonos is a household name for a reason. Bursting with beach clubs, lounge music, and a buzzing night scene, you have the makings of a vibrant and lively holiday. The main town is also stunning with an excellent selection of dining options.
Absolutely! Many of our sample itineraries include island-hopping, with Mykonos, Santorini and Milos always making the cut.
But you’re not limited to just that. Our travel experts specialise in creating unique, personalised itineraries – so any Greek island you’d like to visit can be seamlessly incorporated into your island-hopping tour.
As far as cities go, Athens is the highlight of Greece.
This ancient city is bursting with history, cuisine, culture and endless streets to wander through. We offer bespoke experiences that allow you to see the city your way. From tailor-made food tours to personalised guided walkthroughs of the Acropolis, it’s a gorgeous city to get absorbed in.
Our one bit of advice is to avoid the peak heat of the summer months, keeping your Athens visit to May/early June or September/October.
The real question is where can’t you go for the best food in Greece?
While we can make you reservations at the hottest and most exclusive restaurants, you truly can find delicious food all over Greece. Think freshly caught seafood, crisp Greek salads, and an incredible selection of meze.
For the best beach holidays in Greece, Halkidiki is our top recommendation (and most loved by guests).
Nestled in the northern region of Greece on the Aegean Sea, Halkidiki is a true fly-and-flop destination with its high-end resorts – fitted with fantastic amenities and facilities – and miles of coastline beckoning travellers searching for a spot of R&R.
Our favourite Greece honeymoon destinations are the islands of Paros and Antiparos. Paros is the larger island, while Antiparos sits just off its coast.
Both sporting intimate boutique hotels – perfect for honeymoons – Paros offers an authentic look at Greek culture with charming hilltop towns and historic villages. It also has a touch of nightlife, perfect for an easy and vibrant evening out.
Similarly, Antiparos offers an incredible escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, providing a laid-back environment for newlyweds to revel in the romance.
Yes! Luxury family holidays to Greece are one of our specialities. Enjoy a fly-and-flop holiday to one of our favourite Greek Island resorts, like Costa Navarino, where kids can spend the day adventuring with our kids' club and parents can indulge in the world-class amenities and facilities.
Or go island-hopping on a Greek Islands family tour, staying in lush resorts and immersing yourself in local Greek culture and cuisine.
UK passport holders do not need a visa to visit Greece and can holiday for up to 90 days before needing one.

You can fly from most places in the UK directly to Athens, including London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
Most flights will go to Athens, and then connect there if flying to the islands. Overall flight time is around 3.5 to 4 hours depending on location.
The best way to get around Greece’s islands on holiday is by ferry. Due to the distance between the islands, private boasts aren’t ideal, however, if you’re looking to island-hop in ultimate luxury you can travel via helicopter.
Our luxury holidays to Greece start at around £4000 per person and build from there. The final price will be dependent on the finished itinerary you build with your travel specialist.
However, we promise full transparency when it comes to the costs of your activities, bookings, flights – whatever your tour may include – so you’ll know exactly how much you can expect to spend.
