The most popular areas of Greece are likely to be very busy during the peak summer season months of July and August, while some of the lesser known destinations may be at their festive best at this time and a bit too quiet and inaccessible outside the height of summer. Bear in mind that the high summer brings with it some scorching temperatures, and 40°C is not uncommon at the hottest part of the day. If the heat and the crowds don’t appeal, aim instead for the shoulder seasons. April to June and September to October are great times to plan your bespoke holiday in Greece, and the southern islands in particular can offer plentiful blue skies and warm sun at both ends of this range. Spring (April, May) is a beautiful season to explore with wildflowers in abundance, though the sea can be chilly. Warmer water temperatures await in autumn (September, October) and this is also a good time for local festivals. Winter is a good time for sightseeing on the mainland providing you are not put off by showers, but with strong winds, closed facilities and skeleton services on ferries it can be a tricky time to visit all but the most populous Greek islands.
