Greece boasts landscapes of incomparable natural beauty; from the rugged mountains with their lakes and flowing waterfalls to the picturesque villages by the seaside, their lime white washed walls fusing beautifully with the deep blue of the sea and the sky.
Greece has a typical Mediterranean climate of mild winters, warm and dry summers and extended periods of sunshine throughout the year, making it an ideal location for filming all year round.
Geographically placed in the Southern Mediterrenean, it borders with Albania, Bulgaria, the Former Republic of Macedonia and Turkey. The Aegean Sea lies to the East of mainland Greece, the Ionian Sea to the West, and the Mediterranean Sea to the South. It has the 11th largest coastline in the world at 13,676KM (8,498m) in length. However, it's surface area 131,960 km makes it the 96th largest nation on earth though its modest 10.7 million population means there is certainly no crush on the mainland! Greece has the largest number of islands worldwide, approximately 1,400, of which 227 are inhabited.
