Santorini: The island worth a million postcards
Few can experience Santorini like this.
This is the Greece we dream about. From the villages of brilliant white and legendary sunsets to its volcanic beaches and ancient mystery, Santorini is paradise. Take your time exploring the people and culture of this exquisite island, relaxing on its beautiful beaches, touring the volcano and enjoying the irresistible Santorini sunset.
Built around a 400-year old winery, the 5-star Vedema Resort overlooks rolling vineyards, the Aegean Sea, and sunsets bursting with color. This superbly-located resort offers true luxury in a beautiful, bright and minimalist design.

Private Day Cruise
Feel the energy of the Aegean Sea with a five-hour cruise, including peaceful breaks for snorkeling and a refreshing lunch. During the tour you’ll have the opportunity to visit the hot springs, photograph the volcano from ideal vantage points and admire the beautiful coastline.
The Awe of Folégandros
Folégandros was named after the son of king Minos, so it has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, this lesser-known island captivates visitors with the untouched beauty of its beaches and the unadulterated style of its architecture.
The Provalma Studios are situated at the center of the island and are a part of Ano Meria, a traditional Greek island village. Visitors experience remarkable views of the island, clear sky and Aegean Sea.
Athens: Where Gods Are Born
Experience Athens as the locals do.
What would a Greek trip be without a visit to Athens? While here, you’ll learn how the Acropolis combines the best of science, art and philosophy at a time like no other in human civilization. The Acropolis, and the Parthenon in particular, is the most characteristic piece of the entire ancient Greek civilization.
Experience a living piece of art designed to inspire the creativity of all fortunate enough to stay here. For Greek Cypriot art collector, Dakis Joannou, restructuring the tired Olympic Palace into New Hotel was a true labor of love. Each of the hotel’s 79 rooms and suites allow for a vivid, interactive experience.
