Greece is one of the standout summer destinations, renowned for offering everything from hill top villages to turquoise waters and outstanding gastronomic delights. The islands of Mykonos and Santorini are highly sought after but there is a different side to Greece that is much simpler and quicker to reach. Only a few hours from Athens, the Peloponnesian area known as the Saronic gulf, has everything you could ever want and more!
Spetses – the new ‘go-to’ destination for the global jet-set! Set sail from Athens and set a course straight for the little island of Spetses; arriving in the tiny port of Dapia you will find yourself surrounded by smart cafes and stylish boutiques, set against a backdrop of whitewashed, Neoclassical houses. Just around the corner from the port the cobbled road opens into an expansive piazza that acts as the forecourt for the Poseidonion Grand Hotel once visited by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Bobby Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe and Ingrid Bergman. There are three great sandy beaches to chose from for a day of sunbathing and swimming.
