11 AUGUST I 7 NIGHTS AT HOUSE OF DIMITRI, SKOPELOS – SAVE £606 PP WITH GIC
Reached by hydrofoil from Skiathos, Skopelos is a world of simple, timeless pleasures: translucent waters, cerulean skies and star-filled nights. House of Dimitri (sleeps four) sits on a hilltop overlooking Skopelos Town and the sea. A magnificent swimming pool overlooks the bay and beyond to the island of Alonissos. The interior of this elegant, traditional house is unusual in its layout with three levels, four entrances and a choice of private balconies. Saving £606 pp, a seven-night self-catering stay is now from £913 pp (four sharing), including flights (Gatwick), 20kg hold luggage pp, ferry transfers and car hire.
14 AUGUST | 7 NIGHTS AT THEODORA APARTMENTS, PAXOS – SAVE £426 PP WITH SUNVIL
Stay at one of the fresh and immaculate Theodora Apartments where the swimming pool and terraces are fringed with flowery splashes of colour and balconies overlook cosmopolitan little Gaios, the sea and the mountains beyond. Take a water-taxi from the nearby quayside to tiny Antipaxos for its sandy beaches and Caribbean-hued water. Sunvil also offers a transfer service for Theodora guests to a couple of lovely small beaches a short distance away. Saving £426 pp, a seven-night self-catering stay is now from £769 pp (two sharing a top floor apartment), including flights (London Gatwick), 20kg hold luggage pp, and transfers.
18 AUGUST I 7 NIGHTS AT VILLA SELENE, ALONISSOS – SAVE £440 PP WITH GIC
If you long for a slice of authentic Greek lifestyle without the crowds, you’ll really like the remote island of Alonissos. Here, no-one is in a hurry, and locals take afternoon snoozes in their cool, white-washed village houses. One of the least visited Sporades Islands, Alonissos – a dot in the Aegean Sea – is reached by boat from Skiathos. At contemporary Villa Selene (sleeps five), the sea-facing swimming pool and private grounds bathe in golden hues as the sun sets each evening. Guests have quick access to beaches and wonderful walking trails through forest, and the nearby port of Patitiri offers boat hire for a trip along Alonissos’ beautiful coastline. Saving £440 pp, a seven-night self-catering stay is now from £1,031 pp (four sharing a two-bedroom villa), including flights (Gatwick), 20kg hold luggage pp, ferry transfers and car hire.
18 AUGUST | 7 NIGHTS AT ACHLADIES BEACH COTTAGES, SKIATHOS – SAVE £399 PP WITH SUNVIL
Skiathos belongs to the Sporades island group. It is very compact (only eight miles long) and almost unrealistically pretty. Each of the Achladies Beach Cottages – a pair of charmingly Greek cottages just 15 metres from the beautiful sandy beach of Achladies – has a spacious terrace and an attractive courtyard of potted plants. Achladies beach has a taverna, a couple of snack bars and a water sports centre. An excellent water-taxi service runs from the beach to Skiathos Town, an appealing jumble of red-roofed houses and stone-paved streets. Saving £399 pp, a seven-night self-catering stay is now from £949 pp (two sharing), including flights (Gatwick), 20kg hold luggage pp, and transfers.
19 AUGUST I 7 NIGHTS AT VILLA NONDAS, ITHACA – SAVE £355 PP WITH GICVilla Nondas (sleeps two – six) is a spacious and comfortable property with three bedrooms and a private pool. The small medieval town of Perachori is a short drive away and Vathy’s town is 15 minutes’ away on foot and offers a variety of tavernas, café bars and shops. Saving £355 pp, a seven-night self-catering stay is now from £1,103 pp (six sharing), including flights (Gatwick), 20kg hold luggage pp, and transfers to Ithaca.Relatively untouched by tourism because the island has no airport and can only be reached by ferry, Ithaca – off the northeast coast of Kefalonia, in the Ionian Sea – is a little land of mountains, white-pebbled beaches and pretty fishing villages. Set in private grounds and overlooking Vathy Bay,
