Most travel agents do not list the smaller islands like Gaydos, Paxoi, Ikaria Fournoi, Sifnos, and Chios but there are many others besides these where Greece holiday packages go even further so that you can enjoy an extended holiday here.

These lovely places to vacation at are usually recommended from others that have already gone there, or if you are smart, ask a Greek travel agent to find you something special and affordable while being family-friendly and fun.

Perhaps you prefer nature and good hospitality of quaint towns where people are still simple and not caught up in the stressful rush of our times.  Accommodation prices are cheaper and you can even rent a small villa too.

The biggest disadvantage is that such small places don’t have many means of public transportation, so to get there means renting a car.

Other secluded spots may only have a bus, boat or train at certain times of the week to get there. For this option do some research, or contact our tyravel agents, and you may find a romantic island that you will love visiting, or to go on a memorable honeymoon.
