Travel challenge: A holiday on a Greek island
Saturday 21 August 2010
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a week on a Greek island in mid-September. Prices are for two people travelling together and include seven nights' accommodation.
Ionian & Aegean Island Holidays
£1,182: Alexanna Apartments, Kefalonia
Includes flights departing Gatwick or Manchester on 11 September, a week's car hire and self-catering accommodation at the Alexanna Apartments, just outside Fiskardo, plus a welcome hamper. "These are perfectly located apartments offering exquisite views on one side of the dense pine forest and on the other sensational sea views towards Ithaka. They're in a peaceful setting and are a great base for exploring the island. The famous Mytros Beach is only a 20-minute drive away, but this is also a perfect holiday for those who like more activity than just relaxing on a beach," says Bernadette Askouni at Ionian & Aegean Island Holidays (020-8459 0777; ionianislandholidays.com).

£598: Argo Studios, Corfu
Includes flights departing Manchester on 20 September, transfers and self-catering accommodation at the Argo Studios in Benitses. "Benitses is a quieter resort that's ideal for families and couples.
