Fritidsresor are also introducing new opportunities in Sweden’s new Greece:
Makrigialos and Elounda, in southern Crete and Agios Nikolaos, the town with the “picture postcard harbour”, on the eastern part of the island. Ikara, a lush island with a 1000 metre high mountain, to the west of the better known island of Samos. Agios Spiridonas and Kassiopi, on the northern part of Corfu (Kerkira), with a view over to Albania. Gaios, a village on Corfu’s small southern neighbour of Paxos (Paxi).This trip is only sold as a one or two week combination with Corfu.
Ving offers a lovely little gem, Teledos, which is a volcanic outcrop island, with no traffic, tarmacked roads or nightclubs.
The operator, Langley, who are always able to offer something for the more active traveller, are just finishing off construction of the Langley Resort Buca Beach, on the Peloponnese peninsula. The hotel, which opens in June 2012, has a nearby tennis court and is about a 40 minute car journey from Costa Navarino Golf, which has two courses of varying character.
The southwest part of the Greek mainland, including the Peloponnese peninsula, has a very mild climate during the winter, so the destination should appeal to impatient golfers.
