Book a holiday to Petra, on the slow-paced Greek island of Lesbos, and work your way down the gears as you unwind in the sunshine.
Petra holidays are about relaxing and savouring the unique flavours of Greece.
Petra is located on the northern shores of pretty Lesbos, where life runs at the same pace as the olives grow in the island's bountiful groves. A long beach of golden sand and some shingle stretches in front of traditional tavernas and welcoming bars, while trees and parasols provide spots of shade when the sun beats down.
Those who book a Petra holiday can enjoy the hushed and friendly atmosphere of this traffic-free fishing village, where Greek customs linger and where time-honoured recipes steal hearts in restaurants that take immense pride in the local cuisine.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
