Easy getaway for a few day from Athens

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites, you all have helped me so much in the past. I'm asking again. :-)
I'll be working in France and then Greece in September. I have about four days between the two very hectic working schedules where I'd like to get away and chill by myself. I'll be flying from Paris to Athens and will probably arrive around 5 pm. I'm wondering about suggestions for an island or place on the mainland that I could get to easily and not too expensive. I've been to Greece many times so I'm not looking for the touristy stuff.

A couple of years ago I had a few days between work and I went to Milos. I LOVED it and have been back one other time. I enjoyed it because it was quiet yet many beautiful beaches to visit. Unique scenery and also an ancient theater to visit. I stayed in Pollonia and it was very budget friendly.

Maybe that gives you an idea of the sort of thing I'm looking for. I love to hike or kayak but also like to just wander and visit small villages and out of the way beaches. I have four nights before I have to be back in Athens. Is there maybe a company that flies direct from Paris to one of the islands or somewhere interesting on the mainland so I wouldn't have to stop in Athens.

Any ideas?
