Beach holiday with option for cultural visits too??


I have been to various Greek Islands, as i am very fond of Greece, most recently my partner and i stayed in Haraki, Rhodes for a week. We are planning a two week holiday late July/early August, and although we are tempted to go for Haraki again, i was wondering if anyone could suggest somewhere else in Greece? We loved the village, very relaxing beach, great food and hospitality, but would like the option to make more cultural visits and day trips (we went to Lindos last time). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Hi there

If culture and history are your scene, then look no further than Crete. You'd need at least two weeks to make some form of impression upon what is a very large island but the place is replete with Minoan and Roman remains as well as lovely cities/towns like Iraklion, Rethymmno and Chania which have strong Venetian influences. Personally, I'd say that Rhodes and Crete offer the best of culture and diversity of all Greek islands.

Isuggest you try garden hotel in pastida. I have been there 3 times and it is lovely, people keep coming back to this hotel, food is great and the bedrooms are plain, but you only sleep there, But they are kept clean every day the hotel owners are very friendly and you get 5 star treatment. there are 2 pools, one for the kids and one for the adults.This hotel is paradise. and if you want to walk into the village, It is very nice ,there is a few shops to look at, and at nightime the villageto comes to live. This is highly recomended by me.

HotelSegas has great facilities for inexpensive prices on a family setting

Hotel Casino is a 5* hotel with great facilities and more expensive prices
