Why You Should Consider Greece For Your Next Family Holiday

**Advertisement Feature**

Autumn may be well and truly here, bringing with it the cold, wet and windy weather. But if you are already missing the warm sun on your skin and days at the pool you could be in luck with some last minute breaks in the sun thanks to Voyage Prive.

I have to admit I have been tempted myself after a few chilly morning school runs and having to buy us all new woolly hats and gloves this weekend! The summer feels like it was so long ago and scrolling through all of the holidays available a few definitely caught my eye, one of those being breaks in Greece.


Whilst the weather isn't scorching hot during November/December, its certainly warmer than here in the UK, with temperatures averaging around 22 degrees Celsius in November. The perfect temperature to explore a place full of culture, heritage and things to see and do!

Greece is a great holiday spot for families and here are some of the reasons why you might want to consider Greece as your next family holiday destination.

Beautiful Beaches

When it comes to somewhere to relax, soak up the sun or dip your toes in the water you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to the beaches in Greece. There are actually over 13,000 miles of coastline throughout Greece so there are plenty of beaches to choose from, of course some will be much busier than others. However the golden sand and crystal clear blue water will be the same and so inviting.


Whether its a place to pull out your towel and relax as the kids dig in the sand and the sea laps in the background. Or a rocky beach where you can climb, discover and explore, you are sure to find a number of beaches to keep the whole family happy during your stay.

Educational 

Greece actually has so much heritage and culture as well as endless places to explore, a holiday to Greece can be educational for the whole family too. Whether you want to explore underwater with a spot of scuba diving, go hunting in one of the 3,000+ caves in Greece or wander around one of the historical towns you are sure to learn something new at every turn.


You could even visit Ancient Olympia, the site of the original and first Olympic games! If you aren't sure whether to explore first, or worried about answering the barrage of endless questions the kids are sure to have, you could always book onto one of the many guided tours on offer in Greece. The tour guides are often very knowledgeable about the area and the history too.

Delicious Food

Greek Cuisine is mainly Mediterranean and lots of the dishes use ingredients such as olive oil, meat, fish, grains, yoghurt, bread and vegetables. The popular "Greek Salad" is served with most authentic meals in Greece and is delicious salad either on its own or with a meal. If desserts are more your thing, the whole family will love the Baklava which is a stick sweet dessert made of layers of flakey filo pastry. It is filled with a chopped nut mixture and soaked in a honey syrup to make it sticky, moreish and delicious.

Of course in most tourist area's you will be the find fast food places serving things like pizza but you could also opt for the Greek takeaway option, the Gyro which is meat cooked on a rotisserie. This used to be lamb but in Greece is now more commonly pork or chicken and always a hit with the kids.

Cheap & Quick Flights

Did you know that flights to Greece (Athens) directly take less than 4 hours? Great if you have young children (or adults!) who are nervous about flying or you are worried about kids not wanting to be sat on a plane for too long. A return flight can cost as little as around £120 per person and you can find some great deals if you are willing to shop around. 


Waterparks

If you are looking to really kick back on holiday, let your hair down and have fun with the kids then head to one of Greece's fun packed water parks. Whether you are looking for water slides, lazy rivers or just a beautiful pool to take a dip in you are sure to find something to keep the whole family happy. Some water parks even have a kids club or additional kids activities that run during the day too.

Most of the waterparks also have their own restaurants or café and bar so you can make a whole day out of your visit and grab a bite to eat and a drink during your visit too.

If like me you love the sound of Greece and all it has to offer, you can find your perfect break too by visiting the Voyage Prive website. Would you consider Greece for your next family break or have you been before?
