Travel Click Holidays has released a 5-star escape to the Greek island of Thasos for £399 per person. We found the same package elsewhere for over £200 more. The deal is available for travel in spring and summer, 2013, and includes:
Flights depart from London Gatwick on 10, 17 May; 7, 14 June; 12, 19 July, 2013.
Ilio Mare Beach Hotel is set in tropical gardens on the white-sand Skala Prinos beach in the northwest of Thasos -- the most northerly of the Greek islands, located eight miles from the mainland. Home to "areas of oustanding beauty" according to Rough Guide, Thasos is often referred to as the Emerald Isle of Greece thanks to the pine forests that carpet its hills. Skala Prinos beach was given Blue Flag status in 2004 for its clean, turquoise waters.
Hotel facilities include a lagoon-style swimming pool, a kids' pool, a tennis court, a gym and a cinema. There are also three restaurants including The Lagoon, an à la carte seafood restaurant overlooking the ocean, the Polixeni, serving Greek and international cuisine, and the Anemos Beach Restaurant.
Private taxi transfers and ferry crossing are not included and cost £49 per person.
