White buildings with sky blue shutters, topped with indigo blue domes, perched on the cliffs of tiny islands in the heart of the Mediterranean, brilliant in the bright sunshine … some may think it’s a dream but this is the view that meets your eyes as the ferry slowly pulls into a port on one of the islands of the Cyclades. As fishermen sort their morning catch by their colourful boats and men sip coffee at the quayside kafeneia your journey on the island begins.
Surrounded by the intoxicating scents of jasmine and thyme you travel through magnificent countryside to reach small villages and glimpses of everyday life there; the women are always busy, appetizing aromas of grilled octopus waft through the air, olive oil is drizzled onto a slice of cool feta… irresistible!
You have unforgettable opportunities to swim in the turquoise waters of Amorgos, the stage of the film “The Big Blue”, and to explore the narrow streets on the way to your hotel. In the evening people gather, with an air of ceremony, to watch the sun setting in an amazing array of colours.
The most spectacular are undoubtedly the sunsets seen from the Caldera of Santorini and at Portara on Naxos.
Not only the Cyclades, but also the Ionian islands, the Sporades and the Dodecanese offer a wide range of destinations to explore by car, 4×4 or on foot.
