Greece – The Holiday of Dreams

Grace Hotel Santorini

It was only a matter of time before I started writing posts about Greece – as many of you know my family is from Greece and I tend to write many posts in Greek thanks to all of my wonderful readers from there! 🙂

Every time I go back to Greece I feel amazing, the lifestyle is so laid-back, the weather is beautiful and the food is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

There’s always something new to discover in Greece and the beauty that the country has to offer is simply outstanding – just look at all these pictures – who would get bored of it’s natural beauty?

Now we’re in March I think we’re all dreaming of our holidays (myself included) but what I want to suggest to you lovely readers is look at renting a Villa where a group of friends/family can all go and spend time together instead of hotels – this way you’re all a lot more at ease in your surroundings and it’ll feel like your home away from home!

Below you’ll see some gorgeous pictures of Santorini – it’s a place that I have wanted to visit for probably the last 5 years but haven’t managed to yet, the pink sunsets, the endless sea-views and the crisp blue-water pools – that’s heaven!

Ηταν μονο θεμα χρονου πριν αρχισω να γραφω για την Ελλαδα.

Οπως ξερετε ολοι εσεις οι αγαπημενοι μου φιλοι που ολο αυτο το διαστημα παρακολουθειτε τα οσα γραφω η οικογενεια μου ειναι απο την Ελλαδα και παρα πολλες φορες γραφω τα ποστ μου και στα Ελληνικα.

Καθε φορα που πηγαινω στην Ελλαδα νοιωθω υπεροχα ο τροπος ζωης και διασκεδασης ειναι πολυ ομορφος και φυσικα ο καιρος ο ηλιος η θαλασσα το φαγητο και γενικα οι ανθρωποι δημιουργουν κατι ξεχωριστο.

Ειναι μια χωρα ξεχωριστη μια χωρα πανεμορφη και αυτο φαινεται και απο ολους τους ανθρωπους που καθε χρονο την επισκεπτονται και φευγουν με τις καλυτερες εντυπωσεις.

Τωρα που μπηκε ο Μαρτιος ολοι αρχισαν να σκεφτονται τις καλοκαιρινες διακοπες μεσα σε ολους και εγω.

Ενας πολυ ομορφος τροπος να χαρουμε το καλοκαιρι ειναι εκτος απο τα ξενοδοχεια να νοικιασουμε μια βιλα μαζι με φιλους η συγγενεις και με αυτο τον τροπο θα αιστανθουμε σαν το σπιτι μας μακρια απο το σπιτι μας και συνχρονως να απολαυσουμε τις διακοπες μας ακομα πιο ομορφα. Μπορει σε η πρωτη μας εντυπωση να ειναι οτι αυτη η ιδεα ειναι πιο ακριβη αλλα αν τα υπολογισουμε και τα μοιρασουμε με ολη την παρεα ισως αλλαξουμε γνωμη.

Πιο κατω εχω βαλει καποιες φωτογραφιες απο την Σαντορινη ειναι ενα μερος που τα τελευταια πεντε χρονια θελω να επισκευτω αλλα ακομη δεν το εχω καταφερει πολυ συντομα ομως θα βρεθω σε αυτο το επιγειο παραδεισο.

How gorgeous does Santorini look??

Another place that’s on my list of places to visit in Greece is in fact Mykonos – now I’m not a party girl so I prefer quiet nights with friends and family but looking at the Villa below with outside space, a pool and sea-views why go out and party?

Η λιστα μου δεν σταματαει στην πανεμορφη Σαντορινη αλλα συνεχιζεται με ενα ακομα παραδεισο που ειναι η Μυκονος. Δεν ειμαι το κοριτσι που του αρεσουν τα παρτυ προτιμαω ησυχα βραδια με καλη παρεα και μενοντας καπου σαν την πιο κατω φωτογραφια με την ομορφη πισινα και την καταπληκτικη θεα ειμαι σιγουρη οτι θα ειχα απιστευτα ομορφες διακοπες.

So – have I tempted you to book your holidays to Greece this year???

I know a few of my readers have visited Santorini and told me it’s absolutely beautiful – that’s probably going to be the first place to visit followed by Mykonos but let me know what you all think!! 🙂

Greece The Holiday of Dreams !

    It looks absolutely mind blowing, the closest I have been is cyprus so I have always wanted to visit greece especially as a close friend of mine comes from there. I will have to try and save up for next year as this year seems to be flying by too fast xx

    Πόσο χαίρομαι με αυτή τη δημοσίευση!!!
    Είχα πάει διακοπές στη Μύκονο όταν ήμουν 10 χρονών, δε θυμάμαι και πολλά! Θέλω πολύ να πάω στη Σαντορίνη, όλοι λένε πως είναι υπέροχα!!!
    Πριν απ’ όλα αυτά όμως, σε περιμένουμε στην Αθήνα! 😀 <3 <3 <3
