Our resort in Greece
Enjoy a luxury all inclusive Europe holiday with no hassle whatsoever when you travel with Club Med. The climate in Greece holiday destinations can vary hugely depending on when you choose to take your European break. Whilst the north can be very cold during winter, the south usually experiences much milder winters and extremely warm summers. July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures reaching between 30-35°C but is usually curbed by a strong northern wind called the “Meltemi” which sweeps the east coast during these hot summer months.
Club Med Gregolimano is the ideal choice for all-inclusive family beach holidays in Greece. Tucked between a golden beach and a beautiful pine forest on the Island of Evia, this resort has a festive family focus, with a good mix of exciting watersports in the sea and relaxation among the olive trees.
Monthly weather averages in Greece
Greece has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry weather seven months out of the year, with the north meltémi winds providing gentle relief from the heat along the coast. With highs of 34°C in August, you’ll want to make the most of the cool mornings for sight-seeing then relax in the pool during the hot midday hours, ready to enjoy the famously pleasant Grecian summer evenings.
The best time to visit Greece is between May and October, when you can expect average highs of 25-34°C and dry, sunny weather.
