March Newsletter Now Available at

While some Greek isles like Rhodes, Mykonos, and Santorini can be overrun with tourists in the summer months, there are those isles like Folegandros and Tilos that seem to be a coveted secret among knowing Scandinavian travelers. Moments after you arrive at the main square in Folegandros, you realize that this is the authentic Greece. People dine on wooden tables under a string of electric light bulbs. Men with mustaches out of a 1880s barbershop photo grill souvlaki on an open grill. Older men drink coffee at a small café. All is framed by whitewashed buildings and churches. Tilos is an island where the locals, still unaccustomed to tourists, greet you as if you lived there your whole life. A place where one picks fresh figs off the tree and finds deserted medieval castles that request no admission fee.

In this month’s issue of our newsletter, we turn you on to some of our favorite Greek isles. We also divulge four of our favorite properties in Reykjavik, already becoming a favorite summer getaway for our clientele. If you want to do some spring skiing during the maple sugaring season, Stowe is the perfect choice. Lastly, we discuss the allure of going on a Maine windjammer cruise (just in case you missed all the blogs I posted last week). 
I’m off to St. Augustine, Winter Park, and St. Petersburg, Florida. I’ll be back on March 31st. Happy travels!
