After so much time on the ground, I can’t wait to travel again and Greece is at the top of my list of places to go. I have been traveling Greece for almost 30 years now, but there is still so much to discover in this land of history, beaches, beautiful islands and the most incredible food and drink. Although travel has been difficult lately, some hotels and villas in Greece are actively preparing to open their doors for the first time. There isn’t much more exciting in life than a brand new hotel or villa! I took a look at some of the new properties that are opening for the very first time in 2022, so we can all look forward to another year of wonderful Greek hospitality.
