Santorini and Mykonos

Call 01242 547 821 to speak to a specialist Enquire


The dry and barren windswept island of Mykonos with its stark white buildings is graced with excellent beaches and a beautiful, colourful and cosmopolitan town. Its proximity to ancient Delos has made it the most popular island in the Cyclades. The most westerly of the Cyclades is Santorini, a volcanic island with its glamorous beauty associated with the misty tales of Atlantis. The white villages cling to towering cliffs where you can enjoy a sundowner in one of the world's most enchanting settings.

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.

Guest Testimonial

We are most grateful for the efforts you (Sam Browning) have made on our behalf to make up for the cancellation of the Sun Boat III trip. It is when things go wrong that companies demonstrate whether they just talk about good customer service, or mean it. You obviously mean it and we fully intend to travel with Abercrombie and Kent again.
