Telegraph’s digital traveller writer Oliver Smith says Greece will be his first holiday destination after the corona virus crisis ends. In a piece titled “The first country I’ll visit after coronavirus? There’s no contest”, Smiths lauds Greece pointing out that what he yearns is the pristine life of the islands.
“What I want is the island’s pristine life, the wonderful food and accommodation, the quiet beaches, the lush green countryside and the ultimate getaway from the stress of modern life.”
Among the elements that make Greece an ideal destination, the British journalist writes is traveling by sea.
According to Smith, the boat trip to a picturesque Greek island contributes to the final ideal result and therefore suggests islands that do not have an air connection.

At this stage, due to the restriction of air connections, reservations are running out in villas inside the countries.
A new trend is beginning to develop in destinations around the world, bookings in secluded, luxurious villas due to corona.
At this stage, due to the restriction of air connections, bookings are sold out in villas inside the countries, but it is not ruled out that in the later time, with the opening of air connections, we will see this trend in terms of accommodation gaining ground and in travel abroad. Typical examples are the villas and mansions.
Entrepreneurs and high-income people who usually travel with their families abroad, to countries such as Italy, the US and India, Greece change their travel plans and choose secluded, luxurious villas 3-4 hours away from the cities where they live.
As for the prices of luxury properties offered for rent, the example of a secluded villa of 9 bedrooms is indicative, with a large surrounding area, the cost of which starts from 25,000 euros for 10 days.
According to luxury villa rental companies in Ireland, applications for isolated property reservations have been launched since the second week of March, due to the increase in cases in the country. For their part, customers report that this is the best way to isolate and control their environment, which is not achieved in hotels with common areas.
Finally, according to the executives of the booking companies, the customers do not want personal and daily cleaning as they used to before the corona, but they seek to minimize these services in order to avoid interaction with others.
