The Greek Tourism Minister has confirmed that Greece is looking forward to welcoming British visitors back to the country, with direct flights commencing today (July 15), and that it has taken all due steps to protect both visitors and Greek nationals from any potential risk of infection.
Chris Wright, MD of GIC The Villa Collection, has just returned from a pre-opening trip to Greece and stayed on Corfu. He says: “It was a joy to see those endless vistas across the sea, intense blue skies, olive groves in the sunshine and people enjoying themselves in the lovely warm July weather – and no crowds. Visitor numbers are currently much at April levels.
“In my view, visiting Greece in 2020 will be an unforgettably joyful experience, and one to remember and to talk about for many years to come. All the normal welcoming smiles are there, and all those I met were looking forward hugely to welcoming British visitors back.
“I personally encourage everyone to revisit Greece; our reservations team looks forward to assisting with bookings together with information that will reassure.
“Whether or not you are pushing out the boat or simply seizing the opportunity to get away, we have properties of all shapes and sizes, to suit all budgets.
“It is most definitely time to return to the Greece that we all know and love!”
