Greece for Families

Greece is a wonderful family destination, boasting a perfect blend of ancient wonders, sun-kissed beaches, and warm hospitality. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing beach break, a jam-packed educational odyssey, or ideally a mix of both, Greece has it all. From the iconic Acropolis in Athens to the whitewashed villages of Santorini and the historic charm of Crete, along with an abundance of picture-perfect beaches, there’s something for everyone. Island hopping is great fun, with the option to travel between islands by boat or even base your entire holiday on the water, exploring at your own pace aboard a traditional sailing yacht. Add in the delicious cuisine, and it’s smiles all around.

Charlotte Lawton

Charlotte is the Conde Nast Traveller chosen Specialist for Asia.

My strong sense of belonging in Asia stemmed from a childhood in Hong Kong and Nepal. My Grandmother was born in a tent in India. Some of my clearest memories are of walking through a dense, tropical jungle while hailstones the size of cricket balls rained down on us; of being carried on my father’s shoulders as we trekked through the Himalayas; my mother wearing flipflops on a snowy mountainside; and me falling into Dal Lake in Srinagar as we disembarked from our houseboat.

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way.

Rachael Tallents

Adventure, discovery and my curiosity for people and the natural world is what drives my love of travelling.  I am grateful for my parents’ desire to explore, and from an early age my eyes were open to diverse landscapes, cultures, and underwater worlds.

For the last 16 years, I have worked for a leading luxury tour operator designing incredible journeys for discerning clients and travelled to some magical places. I am excited to have joined Steppes Travel, and to be working for a company with such strong ethical and sustainable values.
