A luxury honeymoon in Greece is up
there as one of the all time honeymoon classics and we recommend
heading to the Cyclades Islands. So named because they encircled
the sacred island of Delos (once central to Greek mythology) these
days the most famous islands of the Cyclades group are Santorini
Our number one recommendation would be a stay on the
crescent-shaped Santorini - perhaps the most famous Greek island, and
physically one of the most romantic and spectacular islands in the
world, with its giant sea-filled caldera created by an ancient
A little more upbeat, cosmopolitan Mykonos is renowned for its nightlife,
trademark windmills and its attractive 'capital' Hora, considered
one of the most beautiful towns in the Cyclades. The hotels here
would also make a fun honeymoon hangout.
For full 'get away from the crowds' privacy, try the little
known but beautiful island of Paros, and the Yria Hotel has an
excellent private cottage for seclusion-seeking 'mooners.
Last but by no means least there is the Peloponnese, a firm new favourite
region of ours with supremely romantic hotels to suit every budget,
and that rarest of beasts, two-person villas with boutique hotel
facilities so guests get the best of both worlds.
