Greece

Come and live not only the glory that was Greece, but also the infinite variety of the landscape ranging from snow capped rugged mountains, to the sun drenched idyllic seashores.
From the beauty and serenity of the Aegean and Ionian Seas - where over one thousand five hundred incredibly beautiful islands are scattered - to the forested mountains, icy lakes and tumbling rivers of Northern Greece.
The land is blessed with temperate climate, sunshine and the beautiful blue sky of the Mediterranean.
