Experience New Greek Destinations with Jet2holidays

Greece is famous for its idyllic islands bursting with natural beauty. A place where historic ruins, sunkissed beaches, and friendly locals meet the azure blue Mediterranean Sea. Through my travels I’ve been lucky enough to visit the Peloponnese, Zakynthos and Crete and always on the lookout for my next Greek odyssey.

Disclosure: This event was a gifted experience by Jet2Holidays to introduce the new travel routes on offer.

For any other Greek fans you’ll be happy to hear that Jet2holidays have unveiled two new Greek destinations to its summer 2020 flight programme. To celebrate I was invited to a Greek cooking class. Music to the ears of an olives and feta lover!

Traditional Greek cuisine is incredibly tasty, think feta ladened salads, juicy souvlakis and moorish moussakas. It’s a complete foodie paradise. Chef Fern put us through our paces slicing, dicing and marinating fresh ingredients. Immersed in a world of herbs, olive oil and vegetables, I obviously handled the situation like the pro I am!

This was accompanied by chicken, Manouri cheese or aubergine skewers and served with a side of warmed pita bread and tzatziki.

The best part part was sitting down and enjoying the great food we’d all cooked. Meanwhile whilst indulging our senses with all the greek flavours, we learnt about the new destinations on offer with Jet2holidays.

Mainland Greece

Launching a new route to Preveza in mainland Greece along the Adriatic coast opens up some charming European travel hotspots. Holidaymakers will have access to the Epirus region which offers everything from 60km of beautiful beaches to enchanting history and exciting nightlife.

Linked to the mainland by Greece’s first undersea tunnel, this picture-perfect region is home to coastal towns like Parga. With its French Riviera-esque vibe, pastel coloured cliffside houses and Caribbean style beaches. The perfect place for sun seekers.

Lefkas off the country’s west coast is separated from the mainland by a small causeway and drawbridge, making it one of the few Greek islands you can drive to. Surrounded by the Ionian Sea you’ll find traditional villages, wild olive groves unspoilt beaches with powder white sands and ancient historical sites. There is something for everyone on this island.

I’m now left with an ever expanding travel wish list and deciding which one will be first next year – Parga or Lefkas?

Have you been to either of the destinations and which one would you love to visit? Let me know in the comments box below
