6 of the best...Homes for celebrating Greek Easter

The UK may have enjoyed some of its warmest Easter temperatures on record this year, but over in Greece and Cyprus, Easter is always balmy.

While most of the world snacks on chocolate eggs, in Greece and Cyprus a Greek Orthodox Easter is quite the family affair. It is the biggest holiday in the Greek Orthodox calendar, starting with a Good Friday procession. Midnight church gatherings are followed by a festival of light and religious ceremonies before the families share a late night meal and enjoy Greek Orthodox traditions, like the cracking of red eggs and roasted lamb the following day.

If you’re looking for a glimpse of the best homes on the market to have a truly Greek-style family Easter, here is our selection of some of the best properties available.
