Santorini is one of the most romantic destinations in Greece

Summer in the Greek Islands

Let’s face it, Mama Mia – Here we go again, is not the kind of film to get hardened cinema critics waxing lyrical. But for sheer joy, entertainment and fun with a large dollop of romance, it’s spot on.

Eschewing the madding crowd of August, those in the know appreciate how special September is in the Greek Islands, not to mention the prices.

Gimme, Gimme, Gimme an extended weekend or a week to stretch the summer, it’s got love written all over it.

If you’re a beach person, then you cannot miss Shipwreck Bay on Zakynthos accessible only by boat.

Stay at the F Zeen Retreat in Kefalonia, it’s adults only and 54 rooms of perfection. Three pools, two restaurants and bars, and interior design that says take your shoes off and drop your shoulders by three inches.

Of course, you cannot miss the epic romance of Santorini, but it’s essential to curate where you stay and eat to avoid the tourist version of this must-see island.

Perched on the cliffs of Oia is the fabulous Katikies, where you are more likely to run into a Hollywood Producer or a renowned author. Essential to book a table at the edge of the terrace at Kapari, it’s quite simply breathtaking.

Paros is the island for the cognoscente in the Cyclades, and if you want access to the picture-perfect resort town of Naoussa but without the buzz of motorbikes, then Mr & Mrs White is the hilltop idyll that is designer perfection.

Have the hotel organise a little boat with a captain to take you to the stunning Blue Lagoon off the neighbouring island Antiparos for a dip, and book you a table on the upstairs patio at the sensational Anna for a culinary Grecian odyssey.
