Holiday to Greece

8
Found 25th Jan
I am looking at taking a 7night holiday to Greece (but open to suggestions) in July. Does anyone have any recommendations for which areas to look at.
It would just be for me and the wife, so don't want anywhere noisy. We don't mind sitting around the pool a few days and swimming, so a decent size pool where you aren't all cramped would be nice.
would be nice being able to have walks out some days too, and look around the local area.

went to lake Garda last year and loved it. Great sized pool, and wasn't really busy.

Greece is huge. Do you want mainland or one of the islands. Where are you flying from. What budget do you have.
For a couple I would suggest Santorini, but also look at Monemvasia, Nafplio, Mykonos, Spetses. Milos, Skiathos.

As windym advised Greece is a big place and there is an island to suit everyone.
Kefalonia is nice
Another vote for Santorini, absolutely stunning, avoid Perivelos unless you want noisy nightlife, Kalmari is good. Small island, easy to get around, great views around the caldera.

Thanks so far.
having a look about on tui etc, it looks to be about £800 - £1000 for the both of us after flights transfers, any hotel air con etc etc. so that's what we are budgeting.
Or does that sound too expensive.? We have both only just started holiday's abroad, can be a bit intimidating at first where you aren't sure what you are doing that's why I have been looking at package holiday.

Would fly from Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Doncaster.
Zante, in Tsilivi region.

Corfu.

Main companies Thomas cook, tui, jet2 or specialist Greek company like Olympic Holidays worth looking at as they often have cheap deals too.
July is a premium time unless early in month due to schools /colleges finished etc

Edit

Just had a quick look Olympic have various places in Greek mainland and islands from 325 per person + transfers first week July from Manchester but have a play with various sites

Some of the smaller islands don’t have hotels with pools, most actually are self catering. I’ve been working on Milos for the past few years
