And what if it’s already autumn…Greece boasts countless places for all-year round holidays either you want to have a short city-break and get to meet the country’s urban lifestyle or you want to have proper vacations in rural landscapes that will delve you into their pristine nature and rejuvenating serenity. When it comes to the latter, autumn in Greece will provide a great opportunity to explore uncrowded places and enjoy exciting activities at your own pace without the heat and bustle of the summer season.
In this article we will share with you some of the most favourite autumn destinations, that will cover any type of travelling preference, a few autumn experiences we can help you arrange as well as the most suited luxury villas for your stay.
Sports and wellness lovers will love the weather to go on hiking and trekking tours by lakes, in mountainous forests or even in seaside settlements and then succumb to the hands of experienced therapists in private spa and massage sessions of all kinds. Culture aficionados will utterly enjoy guided archaeological tours while culinary enthusiasts will have the most precious gastronomical experiences from olive harvesting, olive oil tasting and wine tasting to cooking classes where they will learn all about the pure Greek products and traditional recipes. Name it and we will make it happen!
Not much to say for the capital of Greece; this is the country’s hub for business, shopping, culture, gastronomy, and even the place where you can enjoy both sea and mountain. In order to give a tint of proper holiday to your visit, we suggest you stayed at the southern suburbs of Attica so that you enjoy both the tranquillity and nature of the region and be in close proximity to the city centre. From the countless choices for villas in Athens, we have selected the one we think can pair all the exciting autumn experiences in Greece.
Suggested villa in Athens
Camden is the ideal base for your stay, long or short, as it combines the beauty and tranquillity of the area of Saronida with a 45-minute drive from the centre of Athens. Especially during autumn, the area is far less busy, and you can indulge in the immense natural beauty and unwind in stunning panoramic sea views before or after your visits to the bustling Athens. A fine amalgam of ‘60s aesthetics with contemporary mood in a fully private villa nestled at the rim of a small hill, right above the sea and away from prying eyes.
One of the most graphic towns of Messinia, Pylos is a quiet settlement right above the sea. Visitors here will have the chance to enjoy the sunkissed coasts of the area, with Voidokilia being its crown jewel and wander around the quaint traditional villages. Pylos is the perfect base to explore the authentic Messinian way of living!
Suggested villa in Pylos
Villa Jade is one of the most recent additions in our portfolio of luxury villas in Peloponnese and the ideal rural accommodation to enjoy autumn in Greece. Found in the quaint village of Kynigos, only a few minutes’ drive from Pylos, the villa is a fully refurbished rural house equipped with countless opulent facilities for its guests’ comfort and invigoration. And our tip: take advantage of your stay in Messinia to participate in the traditional olive harvesting and then enjoy olive oil tasting as this is the place where Greece’s top quality olive oil is produced.
Another favourite destination, this time in the Northern part of Greece, Chalkidiki is already quite popular so we will spare the words. The one thing you need to know is that it is quite close to the co-capital of Greece, Thessaloniki, thus offering both the option to enjoy city life and comforts along with some of the most exotic and pristine natural settings.
Suggested villa in Chalkidiki
Located in Chalkidiki’s most beautiful and popular area, the enchanting Vourvourou, Villa Margarita is a fantastic home right by the sea divided in a three-storey voluminous house and two autonomous guest suites with a fully equipped kitchen and a double en-suite bedroom each. Its facilities exceed not only its guests’ expectations but all the rest villas in Chalkidiki: tennis and volleyball court, mini football goalposts, ping-pong table, billiards, gym and a sauna, to name a few.
The list of autumn destinations in Greece would be critically deficient in insightful options if it did not include Porto Heli, the sophisticated destination in Eastern Peloponnese. Flirting with thick pine tree forests and turquoise waters, Porto Heli sways between the legendary archaeological monuments around it – like Mykines and Mpourtzi in Nafplio – and cosmopolitan living. All the villas in Porto Heli are sublime homes nestled within pristine nature, offering utmost tranquility and privacy while only 2,5 hours from Athens and close to some of the most charming islands of the Argosaronic Gulf.
3 suggested villas in Porto Heli
Times: a stunning villa in Porto Heli, specifically in Hinitsa, literally a few steps away from a calm pebbled beach. Its Mediterranean charms, breathtaking views to the rugged coastline and the small islets in the bay, along with its exceptionally manicured courtyard with pool terrace, lawned patios, colourful bougainvilleas and numerous terraces will make you feel like you are in an unfolding fairytale.
Dwell: a massive, mansion-like home with a voluminous terrace and a separate pool courtyard, both surrounded by indigenous trees and the volumes of the actual house to offer privacy and seclusion. But views are lush here; the villa is located at the rim of a verdant hill, beneath which you will find a small, almost private beach. The property offers utter privacy among its guests too as, apart from the main house, it also boasts two independent bungalows.
Libelle: last but not least, Libelle is another stunning home that enjoys fantastic views to the sea and the surrounding verdant slopes as well as access to a secluded cove 10’ on foot. This is a more minimal property than the other two with austere lines, white pergolas and surfaces lined with light-coloured natural stone. But the Mediterranean feel with local flora and herbs, colourful plants, olive and citrus trees make Libelle heartwarming and welcoming, a love at first sight.
