To first time travelers and Greece lovers, Offbeat Greece is the place to go for inspiration, tips, advice and itineraries you can copy exactly.

I am Violeta, and I fell in love with Greece in 1996 when I visited this country for the first time.

I lived in Crete for one winter and I loved every minute of it. Crete is one of my favorite destinations in Greece. From Heraklion to Chania, and from Rethymno to Agia Galini, Matala, Ierapetra and Sitia, Cretan roads offer scenic drives, full of excitement and scattered with small tavernas where you can enjoy the most amazing home-cooked foods.

Greece was the country I had chosen to be my first home away from home. I find pleasure in returning for small vacations, long weekends, or adventurous road trips whenever I get a chance. I’m a short flight away from Athens.

Shall we meet in Plaka for a chat and a drink?
