I don’t know what the weather is like near you, but is is freeeezing here in Denmark! The days are still super short and most are very dark and grey. It is the time of year when depression rises and the winter blues hit hard… So why not get a head start on planning that summer vacation? Most places book up early so it really is an ideal time to make a reservation!
Last year we took an amazing trip to the Peloponese in Greece and enjoyed a restful stay at Paris Village cottages, which was on the mainland of Greece and far removed from the typical tourist traps. There no cheap souvenirs to be found in the area, and instead we dined at local restaurants with Yiyias and Papous doing all the cooking.
The swimming pool was great and there were tons of places to explore nearby, including the Blue Lagoon, plenty of great beaches, fun little towns, the mountains (truly untouched!), and road side views that took our breath away… But if you are the type to just hang out and not go far from where you stay, this place offered a beautiful beach just across the street! This was definitely not the kind of place you would want to go to if you are really big into touristy things and loads of other foreigners being around, but if you want a true slice of untouched Greece… well, it would be hard to beat! It even had air conditioning, which for us was a huge bonus at the end of those hot days!
So, what is next for us? We are currently daydreaming of a road trip that might include parts of Southern Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, and a longer stay in Lake Como in Italy.
What about you? Any plans for the summer yet? Any destinations calling your name?
