Luxury bespoke holidays to Grecotel Mandola Rosa

A five-star hotel in Greece's stunning Peloponnese region, Grecotel Mandola Rosa is the perfect example of luxurious boutique living being brought together with top-quality facilities. Its name, Mandola Rosa, is derived from the Greek for 'pink almond tree,' which reflects the resort's closeness to ancient Olympia, where these trees grow. 10km of Blue Flag beach stretch out in front of the resort buildings, 2km of which is reserved for hotel guests. Each of the guestrooms and restaurants therefore benefits from sensational views across the Ionian Sea. Emerging from the smattering of verdant trees and lawns are the pink-tinged hotel buildings, many of which are set out like private residences, and the striking infinity pool, which takes centre-stage. Inside the rooms, a great feeling of classical charm takes over. Rich colours, such as deep reds, gold, and fresh blues, dominate the colour palette, with refreshing burst of white that complete the very uniquely Greek style. Ornate traditional touches, such as the bedside lamps, elegant chairs, and tall golden vases create a real feeling of luxury and opulence. Grecotel Mandola Rosa offers a range of fine-dining options, each with its own geographical influence. Orient Express serves authentic, flavoursome Asian cuisine in a sleek, oriental dining room. Cap Voyage offers gourmet dishes, served just metres from the lapping waves. In addition to these and the other dining options at the hotel, guests are invited to Dine Around, with another twenty restaurants at Riviera Olympia available. Guests of the Grecotel Mandola Rosa can enjoy the facilities provided by larger all-inclusive resorts, but without the bustle and scale, instead enjoying the peacefulness of a charming Greek boutique hotel.

About Greece

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Greece is ideal for any traveller looking to experience the diversity and splendour of this historic country. With 166 inhabited islands, a history spanning millennia of civilisation, distinctive and rustic cuisine often enjoyed al fresco with taverna-views out over the sea, as well as some of the most spectacular beaches in Europe, Greece offers a fantastic holiday for all tastes and budgets. The sum of an extraordinary diversity of parts, Greece has played host to countless empires, and the country today is fair littered with Roman ruins and Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses and Frankish castles. Its music, food and even language are hugely influence by the Ottoman Empire’s 400-year rule. Scattered far and wide across the Aegean and Ionian Seas, the difficulty with Greece is in deciding which bit to visit. From the rugged hillsides of Crete to the long, wide beaches of Kefalonia, from the dramatic coastline of the Peloponnese to the ancient villages and tiny islands of the Dodecanese and Cyclades, Greece is so many different holidays rolled into one, endlessly multi-faceted country. Whether you just want to fly and flop or explore ancient ruins, whether you’re looking for water sports and nightlife, or wanting to hike between ancient villages, the famously friendly Greeks will be sure to have their welcome mat out for you.

Highlights of Greece

The ancient sites of Athens, with the Acropolis merely the most famous; Halkidiki, three beautiful peninsulas stretching out into the Northern Aegean, dominated by Mount Athos, with volcanoes, beaches and monasteries; Pelios peninsula, well-known to Athenians, little visited by tourists, criss-crossed by ancient mule tracks, with ancient villages, fabulous remote beaches; the Peloponnese, Greece at its ancient (Agamemnon’s Palace at Mycenae and Temple of Apollo at Corinth) and modern (west coast beaches) best; Kos, with beautiful powder-soft beaches sandwiched between verdant interior and turquoise sea; Santorini, perhaps the most iconic island of all, with famous blue-domed churches, white-washed villages and cobalt bays; Corfu’s wonderful old town; Hydra, fantastically scenic, with tiers of stone mansions cascading down towards a perfect horseshoe harbour; Patmos, where St John wrote the Book of Revelations, now a laid-back artistic hang-out; the extraordinarily atmospheric Delphi; Greece’s fascinating second city Thessaloniki; Meteora, one of Greece’s most spectacular sites, with clifftop monasteries overlooking the sea; take a rack-and-pinion train journey through the stunning Vouraikos Gorge to Kalavryta; lobster tavernas of the Fourni islands, a wonderful archipelago with gently shelving islands and hidden coves; the national marine park of Alonnisos, superb snorkelling; turtles on Zakynthos; Ikaria’s bizarre rock formations; spring and autumn migrations, when the cliffs of Lesvos swarm with birds; semi-tropical Samos and pine-scented Thasos with super beaches; tiny, hidden islands of Inousses, Fourni and Psara.

Travelling around Greece & the Greek islands

Greece is an easy place to travel around thanks to a comprehensive public transport system. Buses are the mainstay of land transport, with a network that reaches out to the smallest villages. Trains are a good alternative, where available. To most visitors, though, travelling in Greece means island-hopping on the multitude of ferries that crisscross the Adriatic and the Aegean. If you’re in a hurry, Greece also has an extensive domestic air network. While exasperating ferry schedules make island-hopping here a challenge, the individual character of each island more than makes up for the effort.
