    A wonderful holiday destination in Greece is the mainland the Epirus region.
    In the northwest, facing the island Corfu at the Ionian Sea.
    I am fan of the small coastal town Parga and the beach Lichnos.
    In Lichnos, visitors will find a magnificent beach nice little tavernas and beautiful small apartment complexes as eg the Spiros Studios which I can only recommend ( In The region offers not only beautiful beaches but also many attractions of example Castles, the river Acheron, the Nekromantio, the ancient city of Nicopolis, Dodona, Vikos Gorge etc.
    Parga is definitely worth a visit!
    Have fun in Greece.
