Camping in Greece
Do you want alternative holidays?
Camping in Greece is always the best option. Not only because it is much more economical than a hotel holiday but because you are given the opportunity to stay in the nature.
Let us remind you that in Greece the free camping is forbidden, namely “the installation of tents or the parking of caravans in archaeological sites, seashores, fringes of public forests, forests and generally public spaces”.
Even those who hesitated until a few years ago to choose their carelessness and charm … to sleep under the stars and to wake up with the sound of the sea or birds, especially in front of the lure of a hotel offering all the comforts, now are rethinking.
Of course, beyond the financial difficulties, another reason that has contributed to this change is the growing services and benefits of Greek camping, many of which also offer plenty of enjoyable activities.
There are 314 organized camping sites all over Greece, operating under the special logo of the Greek National Tourism Organization (EOT), which have places for tents or caravans as well as huts and their facilities provide a wide range of services. Many of them even have offers for staying over a number of days or at specific times.
This year, you can relax in one of the wonderful Greek camping sites and discover the unique feeling of freedom and relaxation that the holidays offer a few meters from the sea!
See where you are going and how much money you will need.
