Greece… A timeless classic in the heart of the Mediterranean.
The perennially hospitable, sunny destination that promises to thrust you into a different kind of reality. To a time when the ancients roamed the streets you now walk on; where the fundamentals of politics, philosophy and medicine were born; the navel of civilization. a diverse land of many seas and mountains of unfathomable beauty; with hundreds of islands and a vast, glistening shoreline beckon you to discover them; a place blessed by the Olympian Gods; a spiritual belief system of of Twelve Gods that were revered in temples and remain for you to see in their marble form as statues; with a fascinating mythology, brimming of fables with beasts, heroes and intrigue; a country of warriors the stories which have traveled far and have been immortalized in the pages of the world’s history.
A nation whose people have so fervently defended throughout the ages. A country that seduces foreigners to embrace it as their own. And who can blame them? The Greek word for love -> Agape.
How can one not fall in love with Greece. Speaking of love, there is one place in particular that amplifies that feeling. Santorini. Consider being with your other half in a luxury sunset view suite in Oia Castle, gazing out at a primordial, blissful scene of a deep blue sea, a volcano and a sky like a canvas. Perched on a crescent shaped cliff, on a stark white settlements a top cascading strata of rock, plunging down to a crystalline sea. The Aegean. Sailing the Greek islands will reveal images that tell the tales of the old seafarers that the breeze whispers in your ear. A myriad of coves of different sizes and shapes reveal themselves as you go along the Peloponnese’s most lacy shorelines. You won’t have to venture far from Athens to find some hotels in Porto Heli are blessed enough to claim a private beach and views overlooking neighboring islands, that are just a sea taxi ride away.
“Happy is the man that, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean sea.”
