The climate in Greece is warm and sunny for the majority of the year, however the island properties are only open from May to the end of September. In May, the islands come to life and weather usually settles in a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings, especially in July and August when it can be very hot. Rain is unlikely but it can happen from time to time. May, June and September are particularly pleasurable months with July and August being especially popular on the islands.
