If it’s authentic local character and culture that clients are after, suggest Serifos, says Dudley der Parthog, programme director for Sunvil Greece & Cyprus.

Set amid the Cyclades in the heart of the Aegean, it’s graced with untouched beaches, as well as historic sites, and tourists are few and far between. It also happens to be surprisingly accessible, reached via a two-hour high-speed ferry from Athens.
A good midway point for holidaymakers who are not set on a pure beach holiday
Beaches span rocks and pebbles to pure golden sand; for the latter, recommend Livadakia, a small port and the main tourist area thanks to a handful of traditional tavernas, shops and bars that border a long, curved beach. Tamarisk trees provide natural shade along the sand and the water is a deep cerulean.
It’s also close to the historic capital of Chora – where whitewashed houses rub shoulders with ancient chapels – so it’s a good midway point for holidaymakers who are not set on a pure beach holiday.
