May Day: 8 popular destinations for three days, how much does it cost to stay

Ahead is May Day, and while some of the inhabitants of Greece are preparing for three days of rest, the booking of tourist property in popular destinations reaches 90%.

After the Easter mini-vacation, in addition to the islands, popular continental destinations will receive their share of recognition, as evidenced by booking data on short-term rental platforms.

Bookings for properties suitable for a family of four in popular mainland destinations (Kalamata, Kalampaka, Nafplion, Nafpaktos, Ioannina) range from 79% to 91%, according to a survey conducted by pan-Greek real estate network E-Real Estates. Reservation from 45% to 74% is recorded in such directions as Leonidio, Tiru, ​​Kamena-Vürl beach, hagios Konstantinos of phthyotide (λεωνίδιο, παραλία τυρός, καμένανστας κως φθιώτιώτιδαααα Scaphidia

“We believe that as we approach the three days of May, the number of bookings, especially in nearby mainland destinations (2-2.5 hours from major urban centers), will show an increasing trend until the last day of departure,” said President E- Real Estates, Themistoklis Bakas.

High prices apply exclusively to individual houses/apartments that are available and registered on short-term rental platforms, and do not apply to hotel rooms/or boarding houses.

The number of places available in many destinations is limited, and the fact that many owners have adopted a flexible cancellation policy is a key ally of the industry.
