Why We Love Greece…
The delightful food and drink, the Grecian sunshine, the sparkling ocean, the whitewashed architecture – the real question is, what’s not to love?
British and American tourists don’t need a visa for short trips to Greece. You can stay for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.
Your passport must be:
– issued less than 10 years before the date you enter the country (check the ‘date of issue’)
– valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)
You must check your passport meets these requirements before you travel. If your passport was issued before 1 October 2018, extra months may have been added to its expiry date.
Please check out your local travel advice and let us know if you’re travelling from a different territory.
There are no entry requirements for arrival into Greece.
Please check the Government guidance if you are entering/returning to a different country, and do get in touch with our concierge team with any questions.

Located in the Mediterranean, south Greece experiences warm, dry summers and mild but rainy winters. Taking up a large landmass, the further North you go, the colder the winter will be, but winter’s in the south will stay clement.
