Best time to be there

The mainland and islands are very hot and dry in July and especially August, the preferred travel month for French, Italian and Spanish holiday makers, making conditions busy, hotel availability limited and the beaches crowded. May, June and September are infinitely more comfortable and generally less expensive.
Rhodes, with its refreshing westerly winds and moderate summer heat, makes it the ideal place to travel for a summer holiday or a short break in the spring or Autumn.

GREECE WITH A&K

It's the type of local knowledge that tops off a glorious day. So glorious you had to tell us about it. After a hot afternoon touring Mykonos with its sun-pickled white architecture and 16th century windmills, you needed a drink. More precisely you needed a cocktail. The island was teeming but the A&K guide weaved our party through the throng towards the sunset hotspot of Little Venice, where the perfect waterfront table with the perfect sunset view had been kept free. Your sundowner was served.

Enjoy an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday in Greece - or rent one of our dreamy villas - and it's these little details that make a real difference: the freshest calamari, friendliest boat skipper, quietest viewpoint. Our multi-centre European team has spent 25 years establishing fabulous contacts and a network of superb guides whose specialist knowledge brings the wonderful history to life.

We'll show you Athen's imposing Acropolis clustered around the 2,000-year-old Parthenon, with an acclaimed new museum, just one of the capital's superb collections. You can head out to the haunting Temple of Poseidon above a cyan sea at Cape Sounion, Delphi's famous oracle and the Halkidiki Peninsula, near Thessaloniki, home to UNESCO listed Mt Athos.

Or you might cross the Corinth Canal to the increasingly fashionable Peloponnese, where Nafplio's beauty is matched by the towering drama of the Mani Peninsular, and history takes the striking shape of the Theatre of Epidaurus.

When it comes to islands, you're spoilt for choice - there are at least 1,200. Crete's the largest, alive with myths and home to the ruins of the Minoan's political nerve centre, the Knossos Palace; Mykonos, washed with warm winds, attracts international A-listers, while Santorini's white houses and blue domed churches, teetering on the edge of an extinct volcanic caldera, offer widescreen panoramas.

It's familiar yet very special. Take an A&K tour in 2014 and our superb guides will further enrich the experience. You told us about the brilliant Demetra.  Every day she arrived with a new marvel for our guests: replicas of ancient coins, recordings of traditional music, mosaic making tools. As we said, it's the little details that make all the difference
