With a history that can be traced back to 3,000 BC, Greece has an unparalleled cultural legacy. To say nothing of democracy, this country has given us, among others, Socrates, the greatest Athenian philosopher and teacher of Plato; Homer, author of the Iliad and the Odyssey; Greek tragedians the likes of Sophocles and Euripides; and gods the likes of the Olympians. Here, it's possible to do little else but soak up the blinding sun and then dance the night away with throngs of fellow sunburned hedonists--or spend the day trekking through the stomping grounds of legendary figures like Agamemnon (the citadel at Mycenae is a must-see) and then spend a quiet evening in a taverna over seafood and a bottle of retsina. In Greece, as with all European destinations, an adventurous spirit and an appreciation for the country's differences are essential to enjoying its riches.

Aegean Islands Villas  -  [ Matches:  19 Villas and Houses For Rent]

This island group includes the Dodecanes, the Cyclades, the Sporades, and the Saronic. It also includes the northern islands of Ikaria, Khios, Lesvos, Limnos, and Samos. The Aegean Islands offer a variety of landscapes, from verdant farmland to barren hills. Wherever you may travel in the Aegean, however, beautiful beaches, clear water, and fascinating antiquity are constants.

Crete  -  [ Matches:  4 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Majestic mountains rise from the center of the island, offering magnificent scenery. Crete is renowned for the variety of its vegetation and the wildlife in its chestnut, oak, and cypress forests. Visitors to any one of our Greek villas in Crete will be rewarded with the island's diverse landscape of rocky cliffs, sand, pebble beaches, high mountains, and sparkling seas. Legend has it that Crete was the birthplace of Zeus and home of the Minotaur. The Minoans, Crete's earliest inhabitants, were an extremely advanced civilization. Their palaces contained plumbing systems unmatched until Victorian times. The most important cities from the Minoan era are Festos and Knossos. Because of Crete's proximity to Egypt and Turkey, the island's culture and history were greatly influenced by different civilizations during the centuries.

Peloponnese  -  [ Matches:  3 Villas and Houses For Rent]

The Peloponnese has beautiful beaches and majestic mountains. The port town of Koroni has a lovely beach and castle and the fishing village of Finikounda is one of the best windsurfing destinations in Greece. To the east of Kalamata is the Messinian Mani, with its clean pebble beaches, wooded slopes, rugged peaks, and beautiful villages with cobbled streets. The village of Karadmyli, located at the end of the Vyros Gorge, is in the shadow of Mount Taygetos, known for its wonderful trekking trails. The Peloponnese is steeped in ancient history. Corinth was a great naval power in ancient times. The Doric temple of Apollo stands on a knoll to the north of the agora and remains the most important monument of that period. It contains mosaic floors, Mycenaean and Corinthian pottery, terra cotta sphinxes, statues of supernatural beings, relief plaques, and the Roman head of the Goddess Tyche. Olympia, on the banks of the Olfios River, is an archeological site rich in architectural remains. The ruins of ancient Korinth are spread out at the foot of the huge rock of Acrocorinth. It is the largest and the oldest fortress in the Peloponnese. Akrokorinthos contains principally Roman remains and some Greek edifices. There are a number of shrines and temples, including the Temple of Aphrodite. The town of Methoni has a vast 13th century fortress surrounded on three sides by the sea. The town of Pylos has two castles, one on each side of the bay. Nearby is the Mycenean Palace of Nestor, one of the best preserved of all Mycenean palaces. Many of the frescos and artifacts found here are now in the archeological museum in nearby Chora.

Thessaly  -  [ Matches:  1 Villas and Houses For Rent]

Encompassing the fertile plains of central Greece and the mountainous eastern coast, Thessaly offers opportunities for mountain exploration (the Olympus, Pindus, Ossa, and Pelion ranges are located here) and beach activities on the Aegean. The Mount Pelion peninsula is known for its forests, tasteful resorts, and unspoiled coastline. Volos, the main port city, is an easy access point to the Sporades. Although not particularly beautiful, the inland capital of Larissa is an important road and rail junction and a convenient staging point for travels north towards Mount Olympus and Thessaloniki, or west towards Kalambaka and the Monasteries of Meteora, one of the best sights in central Greece. These 10th century buildings, perched on pedestals of rock, are not to be missed.
