Santorini - Villa Holidays in Santorini

As one of the most photographed destinations on the planet, Santorini is a truly picture perfect getaway. Among the crisp white buildings, bursts of colour come from the blue-domed churches that make this island so iconic. Weave your way through narrow cobbled streets to breathtaking vantage points, before heading down the pathways towards the coast where you can watch the fishing boats bob along the shore. Soak up the sun and escape the hustle and bustle on the quieter side of the island at one of the many dark sand beaches for a taste of the luxury villa lifestyle.

  • Santorini Shopping

    Head to Oia and Fira for a spot of retail therapy and discover the many clothing, jewellery and book shops tucked away down the narrow and sloping streets. There are few shopping destinations with more character, charm or with a better view! Pick up the handmade lava candles crafted in workshops on the island, they’ll make the perfect Santorini souvenir to take home.

  • Santorini Beaches

    Deep blue waters meet dark fine sand on Santorini’s unique beaches. Quiet and secluded bays offer peaceful and idyllic days of relaxation – the Red Beach is a must visit. Whilst the busier beaches of Kamari and Perivolos, set amongst quaint fishing villages, traditional tavernas and champagne beach bars, provide lively locations for days out. There’s a beach for every sun-worshiper on the island.

  • Santorini Food

    From tasty tomatoes to freshly caught fish, the food is yet another reason to travel to this idyllic Greek paradise. Dishes served up in Santorini make the most of the fresh local produce. And where better to enjoy them than in one of the many restaurants boasting beautiful views of the sea and the pretty surrounding clifftop towns? Treat your taste buds to “Saganaki”, this fried cheese cased in filo pastry and drizzled with delicious honey is the perfect blend of sweet and savoury. As a side dish, “Fava me Kouki” is a must try – a simple but tasty combination of mashed Flava Beans and tender artichokes. Of course all of the traditional Greek favourites are also served up in abundance, so tuck into juicy olives, fresh Greek salads, and flavoursome Moussaka.

  • Santorini Local Charm

    Santorini is bursting with famous Greek charm that’s impossible to resist. Here you’ll find everything you dream of and more, from waterside tavernas, to tasty mezes and an unrivalled warm welcome from the locals. The Athenian jet set love to soak up the island’s luxurious offerings, so why not join them and indulge in some fine dining or retail therapy in the chic clothing boutiques. Santorini has an air of sophistication – the exclusive yet modest feel of the island is ideal for those seeking a luxurious getaway. The pretty, winding streets of Oia and Fira are amongst the most charming locations in Santorini. With crisp white passageways lit up with the pink flurries the bougainvillea flowers and doorways painted bright blue, around each corner is yet another photo opportunity.

  • Santorini Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Take an evening wine tour to sample the specialities of the island’s wineries. Made from pumice oil, these wines are unique in taste. Finish the day as you raise a glass to the sunset views of the caldera.

    • Put your walking shoes on and hike from Fira to Oia. Take the route along the cliff edge and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way.

    • Swim in the turquoise waters of Amoudi Bay. Dry off and head to one of the waterside tavernas for lunch al fresco.

    • Explore the hidden pathways of Oia and Fira. Venture to the top and take in the views of passing boats and endless seascapes.

    • Santorini’s answer to Pompeii sits on the archeological site of Akrotiri where the old town sits under a blanket of volcanic ash.

    • Hop on a boat to Thirasia, a tiny islet that was once a part of the main island and offers pretty panoramas from the opposite side of the caldera.
