Why go to Greece?
Click here for brochures from Greece specialists
  • Great beaches, with generally calm, clear seas.
  • Laid-back atmosphere, children welcome everywhere.
  • Easy to explore, with even the smallest village having some cultural/historical must-see.
  • Good weather from early-to-late season, usually with cooling breezes.
  • Easy eating out, Greek food pretty toddler friendly.
  • Reasonable shops and medical facilities in most major resorts/towns.
  • Comparatively cheap.
  • Plenty of culture, great range of destinations - from the very touristy to the very remote.
  • Easy to do 2 centre to combine a bit of both.

Things to think about:

  • Doesn’t have the same level of sophistication as more northerly Med countries - plumbing can be poor, there are frequent power cuts.
  • Laid back attitude can cause frustration - food can take hours to appear for example.
  • Food is toddler-friendly - e.g. chips, salad,moussaka, but is a little unvaried. If you’re going for 2 weeks, be prepared to do a bit of preparation yourself or take some jars.
  • If the weather is bad you can always visit some of the ancient sites, but otherwise there’s not a lot to do.
  • Can get very hot in summer, and Ionian Islands especially Corfu are quite humid so there are lots of mossies. Be prepared and you’ll be fine!
