Guide de voyage: Travellers who read and speak French can now research, plan and book their holidays to Greece and the Greek Islands through a comprehensive French-language travel website, Hellenica.
Created by the husband and wife team of Guillaume, who is French, and Eleanna, who is Greek, Hellenica.fr provides detailed and personally verified information, all in French, to help readers easily plan their own trips to Greece. The website includes descriptions of Crete and the six chains of Greek islands, and has search engines that website visitors can use to book ferry tickets, flights and accommodations. There’s also a section of trip reports illustrated with dozens of beautiful photos.
Guillaume and Eleanna developed the website to share their tremendous passion for Greece, and specifically to pass along information about their personal discoveries and favourite places.
Guillaume told me he’s been in love with Greece since his youth, when his parents took him to Matala, Crete during the 1970s; he says he has been visiting the country every year since. When he and Eleanna realized a complete Greece travel guide wasn’t available in French, they decided to launch their own.
Though Hellenica is packed with helpful information, readers who can’t find answers to their specific Greece travel questions are invited to ask Guillaume and Eleanna for assistance, either by email or through Hellenica’s Twitter feed. Responses are promised within 48 hours.
