Where we stayed: Right in the middle of Athens, the Niche Hotel boasts a beautiful rooftop terrace that lets you sip local wines with a view of the famous Acropolis. Doesn’t get much better, really.
Relaxing in Kalymnos
Looking for a truly authentic Greek experience? The Island of Kalymnos is so secluded that our team felt they had “died and gone to heaven”. That’s some review. Visited by the Greeks on their own staycations, this quiet island is the place to go to get away from it all.
Top tip: Make sure you check the ferries from Athens - they only leave once per week.
Where we stayed: “We booked into MasouriBlu Boutique Hotel and cannot recommend enough. We arrived bright and early from the ferry, just in time for breakfast, outside, overlooking the water. It was such a breathtaking view we’d go back in a second, and plan to!”
