Autumn's here, time to visit Greece

Sorry to have to say it but the Shirley Valentine Wannabees have all gone home along with the the tattoed Brits on tour fraternity. If this upsets your holiday plans, don’t read on. If, on the other hand, you see this as a window of opportunity to visit the stunning Greek islands when they are not crawling with tourists, keep going.

One island always worth visiting in the Autumn is Santorini. Towns which are normally overrun with tourists, such as Perissa and Oia, are relatively quiet at this time of year, giving you the chance to soak up the laid-back Greek atmosphere of the tavernas and shops. You'll see fewer cruise ships too. Fira hosts an International Music Festival, with jazz recitals, orchestral music and opera from all over the world.

Direct flights run with Easyjet from Gatwick, and with Thomson also from Gatwick.

For digs you won't do better than the Astra Apartments and Suites - perched on the volcanic cliffs of Imerovigli and with jaw-dropping views of the Aegean. Or take a look at what Holiday Rentals have on offer.
