  • About The Greek Islands

    The Greek Islands are blessed with dazzling natural beauty, a very warm climate, stunning beaches and inviting turquoise seas. It’s no surprise that these islands are so popular, as they have so much to offer. Choose what type of villa holiday you want and find an island to suit your needs. Enjoy watersports, history, glorious beaches and vibrant nightlife on many of these magical islands.

    The cuisine is another reason why so many holidaymakers return to the islands year after year. They have all the traditional Greek dishes we know and love, such as Beef Stifado, Lamb Kleftiko, Moussaka and an endless selection of tasty Mezes. The food on the Greek Islands is simply irresistible.

    The islands in the west are lush and green, whereas those located in the southeast tend to be dry and rocky. For a beach holiday of a lifetime, you might want to consider renting a villa in Crete or Kefalonia, or for history and picturesque towns, try Rhodes. If you want to get away from the crowds then Ithaka or Paxos are wonderful choices with their secluded bays, peaceful villages and relaxed way of life. Those who enjoy exploring will love Skiathos with its winding trails and fantastic walking routes.

  • When to go to The Greek Islands

    Greece benefits from an idyllic climate and lovely hot summers. The islands tend to get extremely warm in the summer months with temperatures reaching the mid to upper 30s in August. The weather is a little less intense in May, June, September and October, with the islands varying in temperature slightly depending on their location.

  • Cultural Highlights

    Another reason why the Greek Islands attract so many visitors every year is because of their impressive landmarks and ancient sites. They have a rich history and many fascinating ruins and tourist attractions to discover. Greece has more archaeological museums than anywhere else in the world and the islands are packed with ancient ruins. There’s the acropolis in Rhodes, the Palace of Knossos in Crete and the famous cities of Sparta and Olympia in Peloponnese, to name a few, and plenty more to see and do on your holiday with James Villas.
