Greece - An Ideal Summer Holiday DestinationArticle Category: Finance
Holidaymakers who are eager to exchange their travel money into euros and, therefore, don?t want to stray from the Eurozone, might find that Greece could be a hot destination this summer. For accommodation choices, Greece is certainly one of the best due to its diverse range whether you want a mid-priced hotel or a luxury villa - and these options may help the credit crunching visitor to get the most from their money.
As expected, Greece has its fair share of Five Star Hotels. When paying premium rates for the utmost quality, the archipelago of Santorino situated just 200km south east of the mainland is a popular destination for sightseeing and glorious scenery. The Aigialos in Firo offers a range of rooms and apartments in traditional Greek style and overlooking the coastline. The area is known for its quiet atmosphere and is popular as a romantic setting for weddings.
If you don?t want to spend so much on accommodation but still wish for the luxury of a hotel, there are many mid-price options available in the bustling city of Thessaloniki. The ABC Hotel is conveniently placed to make the most of the capital of Macedonia and offers rooms that are suitable for the more modest pocket. The money you save from a cheaper inner city hotel could then be spent on a daytrip to Mount Olympus.
Central Greece boasts some beautiful campsites suitable for families. Eritria is renowned for being a place of historical interest, due to it being a hub of archaeological excavation since the 19th Century. Campsite Milos boasts itself as a modern campsite in a location steeped in history with 14 acres of camping land against a backdrop of the Attica Mountains. Beyond the pleasure of exploring the natural and historic surroundings, there are also fantastic beaches nearby.
Greece also offers a range of great self-catering villas suitable for couples and larger groups of people. The Ionian Islands are situated off the west coast of Greece and are host to many independently owned villas as well as those owned by established agencies. A house suitable for 12-14 people in Loggos will cost in the region of under 4000 Euros in July and could rise to over 7000 in the first week of August. However, for economy, these are often better due to the opportunity to split the cost among many as well as benefiting from other perks such as private swimming pools and outdoor areas.
