All of them! Seriously something for all tastes on most of the islands.

But if you want me to narrow it down to 1 then choose Kefalonia.

A bit more info from you will help us to help you, for example.

I am over 60 but age dont limit me from visiting any islands Kefalonia may be good, popular by Brits I have heard. Scandinavians tends to have a hang-up for the Cyclades or Dodecaneses. Most people from USA and Australia have only heard of Santorini and Mykonos, and pile up there.

Age is irrelevant. What are your interests, what do you want to see and do, do you want lively, touristy places or an "away from it all" experience, will you hire a car, do you want a luxury hotel, self catering villa or apartment, basic rooms ... Please help us to to help you.

Thank-you all for your feedback. My apologies, we've not been to Greece or it's islands before and the forums are great but a little overwhelming with ideas at times. We're a Canadian couple who enjoy interacting with the local population and international travellers alike.

More to the point our specifics are:

- 2 adults travelling late May or early June for a 2 week trip to celebrate retirement

- away from it all quiet relaxing upscale boutique/small inn/B&B with pool

-accommodations that re relatively close to beaches & restaurants

I favour the mainland where I can recommend two beautiful, quiet and relaxing places that would suit your requirements: Kardamili http://www.kardamili-greece.com/ and Gialova where I can recommend the lovely little Hotel Zoe http://zoeresort.com/

If you are set on an island destination I'm sure others will recommend some that might suit you.

Don't go to Santorini or Mykonos.
