Our resort in Greece
Enjoy a luxury all inclusive Europe holiday with no hassle whatsoever when you travel with Club Med. The climate in Greece holiday destinations can vary hugely depending on when you choose to take your European break. Whilst the north can be very cold during winter, the south usually experiences much milder winters and extremely warm summers. July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures reaching between 30-35°C but is usually curbed by a strong northern wind called the “Meltemi” which sweeps the east coast during these hot summer months.

Proof of this is the impressive panorama seen from the top steps of the theatre.

The archaeological site of Olympia takes you back to the days of ancient Greece. In the heart of the Peloponnese Valley, the site is one of the country’s archaeological treasures, and one of the greatest memories from your all-inclusive holiday in Greece.

You should also consider visiting the House of Mosaics to discover some superb pieces from the period.
In central Greece, 3 hr 30 from your Club Med Gregolimano resort, come and see these unmissable monuments to Greek Orthodoxy.
