Holidays Villas In Greek Islands

Feb 28, 2008
Renting one of the various different types of holiday villas in Greek Islands will offer you the chance to explore some really amazing and beautiful country. But when it comes to getting to your holiday destination, you have a number of choices to make upon arrival in Greece. You could if you wanted to fly but a great many tourists prefer to take the more scenic route and travel by boat to the Island on which they will be staying during their vacation.

These are not only cheap to travel on but the services are very frequent but the Greeks do find it somewhat difficult keeping to the schedules. When travelling by this form of transportation it is a good idea to reach the port from where the ferry or hydrofoil is leaving with plenty of time to spare. Another trait that the Greeks have when it comes to them leaving port they do not wait around.

As you will soon notice, all the boats, which are moored up along the quay, have both the destinations and times on signs at the rear (stern) of the boat. Plus you will notice a large amount of activity occurring around those, which are due to leave shortly.

When you have located the boat that will take you to the Island where you will be staying, you can go up to the booth in front of it and purchase a ticket. If you are travelling with children, it is important to note that those aged six or under travel for free whilst children up to the age of 10 will only be charged have the price of an adult ticket.

If you are going to be travelling to Rhodes, Crete or Lesvos it is crucial that you book yourself a cabin on the ferry. The journey time from the Greek mainland to one of these islands takes between 10 and 15 hours to complete. You have a choice between either booking a first, second or deck class cabin for the duration of the journey and if you can book it prior to actually arriving at the port.

Although first class cabins are more expensive (about the same price you would pay to fly), the time you spend on board may actually be more fun and relaxing. Plus in addition, you have a better quality of service when on board including a private dining room for those who have paid the money to travel first class.

If however the thought of spending so much time on a boat is not your idea of fun then why not get a ticket on the hydrofoils or high-speed catamarans instead. Although these reach their destinations much more quickly they do not offer the same levels of comfort and plus you may actually miss some really beautiful scenery as they speed across the water.

Yes, you can fly on from mainland Greece to your Greek Island destination, but if you really want to get your holiday off in the right frame, then taking a boat is perfect. Soon you will find yourself luxuriating by the side of your holiday villas in Greek Islands swimming pool, or enjoying a taste of what the island has to offer.
