3-Day Weekend: Top 5 Vacation Destinations

The three-day weekend falls on June 11, 12 and 13. That is, the day of the Holy Spirit is added to Saturday and Sunday – a Christian holiday that is celebrated the day after the Holy Trinity, and is non-working in Greece.

These are the first official three days of summer when you can arrange a “mini-vacation” for yourself, writes iefimerida.gr.

Because of the fine weather, many have opted to spend the three days of the Holy Spirit on one of the country’s islands, but there are also continental tourist destinations that are just as attractive and are expected to welcome out-of-town visitors.

“Tourist property booking rates may not reach 80% and 90% at the moment, but we should note that as we approach the three-day period, a further increase in demand will be recorded. There is a big dynamic in the real estate industry right now, that is, there is a big demand for properties available for rent through short-term rental platforms (virtually the same ones that were reserved by citizens during the Easter and May Day periods),” says Themistoklis Bakas, president of E-Real Estates.

There are more real estate registrations on short-term rental platforms. In particular, in Kalamata, out of 541 registered homes on short-term rental platforms on May Day, according to AirDNA, there are 616 today, which means an increase of 13.86%. An increase in the number of registrations was recorded in Nafplio by 8.17% and in the prefecture of Ilia by 21.59%.
