A Greece holiday is more than likely to have something for everyone. With beautiful, sandy beaches, stunning scenery and compelling history, it's a safe bet that Greece will intrigue those with even the most obscure of tastes. Its sizzlingly warm climate is at its peak in July and August, but is still worth sampling as a holiday from the UK drizzle any time from May through to October.

The resorts of Corfu, Crete, Kos and Rhodes encompass that of the most buzzing, peaceful, lively and tranquil aspects of holidaying in Southern Europe. Each has its fair share of bustling bars, chilled beaches and fascinating historical attractions.
