September can easily be considered the best month to visit Greece. September takes away the many crowds and exhausting heat of summer while it brings a sweet mellow sense of autumn nostalgia, as you clench at the thought of winter coming. September is a chance to have the Greek holiday you’ve always wanted, whether it’s a quiet and collected retreat, luxurious panoramas in Crete, an uber comfortable waterfront escape or just roaming around the Aegean sea.
Folegandros: Less is More!
Are you craving to experience genuine Greek island life?
Folegandros is by far the cosmopolitan outsider of the Cycladic island cluster. Laconic in character and frugal in personality, Folegandros is a rugged, picturesque island that has been almost untouched by time and mass tourism, unlike its other Cycladic neighbors. Get in touch with true island nature by discovering the crystal clear, pebbled coves of Agios Georgios and Ligaria on the north side of the island, surrounded by cliffs. Visit the Chora and indulge in dramatically spectacular views from Kastro and Panayia church. Surround yourself with Folegandros’ genuine flair by staying at Anemi design hotel in Karavostasi that pays tribute to the island’s colours and traits, in a more than elegant venue.
Folegandros in September promises a tranquil scenic atmosphere, in a traditional setting that will make you realize that true happiness can be found in absolute simplicity!
Your 2 in 1 Cretescape
Are you looking to combine natural beauty, with luxurious privacy and a bonus island excursion?
Elounda Gulf is one of the most spectacular locations in Crete. You will become mesmerised by the beauty of the luxurious views that are strewn at your feet, while you can pamper yourself to the max with 5 star hotel amenities, whilst in the privacy of your own villa. Situated on the panoramic Mirabello Gulf, this gives the thirsty traveller even more options. Arrange a sailing excursion and discover the controversial islet of Spinalonga that lies within your reach from the elegant Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites. Consider a day trip there to explore its interesting history as it is an ideal opportunity to combine two destinations in one, with a romantic activity for couples that can be turned into a fun one if you include the entire family!
Corfu: Re()sort it!
Are you the holiday resort type and haven’t yet visited the Ionian islands? Corfu has been listed as a top destination for short escapes, and rightfully so as it is one of the most diverse islands offering many different visitor experiences. Although its old town is full of Venetian architecture, and while during September you can saunter around at your own pace, peacefully admiring all the remnants of past glories, Corfu also boasts fabulous azure shores. So if it is quality, relax time you are looking for on your September holiday fix then you might enjoy an integrated accommodation solution on the waterfront of a Blue Flag awarded golden beach of Agios Petros. At Capo di Corfu you can stay in one place and fully recharge for the winter, taking in the sea views, the sky’s vibrant colours and emptying your mind of worries and concerns.
Roam around the Aegean!
Are you in the mood for an on board adventure in order to discover the wonders of Classical Greece? Greece is blessed with so much sea that connects otherwise inaccessible areas, or destinations that would need a lot of planning and potentially dead time getting to each location by way of conventional transfer. Think about the practicalities of packing your suitcase, only once and getting to experience at least half a dozen places. This is how private yachting and cruising can provide a completely different type of holiday for the more thirsty travelers who want to optimize their vacation. A boutique cruiser such as Variety Cruises allows you to embark once, and visit 5 amazing islands in 8 days, with no crowds, no rush and no August winds!
I love Greece in the Fall! If you want to beat the crowds and experience all that Greece has to offer then any of these experiences will make you smile!
