Sunvil has launched its 2016 real Greece & Cyprus brochure, featuring a range of holidays to the more authentic areas of both countries.
New highlights include two special events – the 2,400th anniversary of Aristotle’s birth and its accompanying celebrations in the pretty fishing village of Olymbiada on Halkidiki’s least-developed peninsula, Athos, adjacent to Stagira where the renowned Greek philosopher was born, and the chance to become a Greek athlete for a day at the modern Nemean Games in the scenic Peloponnese.
Amorgos, one of Greece’s most remote islands, has become more accessible, and it is now possible to book a two-hour catamaran transfer from Mykonos.
The company's new brochure also features an expanded programme on the island of Milos in the Cyclades and new accommodation options on the little-known Pelion peninsula, offering well-preserved mountain villages, pristine beaches and verdant forests.
Zakynthos, with its temperate climate, fertile valleys and loggerhead turtle nesting grounds, has also been re-introduced to the programme.
Meanwhile, the operator's Cyprus programme offers a selection of hand-picked hotels, villas and village apartments, located in traditional villages away from the busier coastal resorts.
Sunvil’s chosen regions include Polis and Akamas, Paphos, Limassol, Larnaca, the Troodos Mountains and buzzing Nicosia with its old town and new Leventis Gallery.
As an example of prices, a seven-night half-board stay at Liotipi Hotel in the seaside village of Olymbiada (adjacent to Stagira) costs from £677 per person, based on two sharing. Flights are from Gatwick and transfers are included.
