Greek self-catering holidays galore this August January 10, 2007

If you have got your two weeks abroad pencilled-in for August, but are undecided where to go, then why not grab the opportunity to get away to Greece and its nearby islands?

There are many great value Greek holidays available before the summer is out, which include flights and self-catering accommodation, based at a variety of coastal locations.

Kalives on the north-west coast of Crete remains largely unspoilt and has excellent sandy beaches, good places to swim and beautiful rolling countryside.

The spacious Afrodite Apartments have a good-sized pool and are located just three minutes’ walk from the beach. Departs 22nd and 29th August.

Alternatively, if you want to experience the more tranquil and rural side of Crete, you could stay in Gerani at the modern Ilios Apartments, located 14 kilometres west of Chania, the second largest city on the island.

Gerani is a relatively undeveloped area, with a wide sand and shingle beach and lots of greenery. A selection of shops and tavernas are only five-minutes walk away from the apartments, which also have a swimming pool. Departs August 22nd and 29th.

If you prefer staying somewhere more remote, the small, leafy and picturesque island of Skiathos has apartments that are within a short walk of three sandy beaches. The comfortable Magdalena Studios are located in rural surroundings and have free access to the swimming pool next door. Departs August 25th.

The busier village of Tolon is ideal for first time visitors to Greece with its long sandy beach, cafés, restaurants and fascinating past. The Viaros Apartments occupy an elevated, quiet position with spectacular views of the village and sea, yet are just a three-minute walk from the bustling waterfront.

There are lots of things to do at Tolon, including watersports and cruises to the surrounding bays and small islands.

If you are looking for an opportunity to explore Greece’s classical past, then Mycenae, Argos, Tyrins and Corinth are all within reach. Departs August 27th.

Corfu might be best known as a busy tourist-filled holiday destination, however Maltas in the south-west is just about as far as you can get from the island’s mass market image. Five minutes away from one of the longest beaches on the island, Tasia Studios also have a pretty garden and country views. Departs August 28th.

All holidays start at £349 person except Ilios apartments which start at £389 per person. Prices are based on two sharing a self-catering studio apartment (or one-bedroom apartment at the Ilios in Crete) for fourteen nights with return flights and transfers, including in-flight meals.
