ABOUT SANTORINI GREECE
Santorini is the most popular Greek destination and a worldwide famous island!
Once you set your foot on the island, you’ll feel like entering a whole new world. A world where all the shades of red create unreal sunsets.
The caldera offers the most dramatic sea views you’ve ever seen and enormous cliffs are dotted with dreamy Cycladic whitewashed houses!
Nothing will prepare you for the beauty you’ll face here. It is a unique Greek island!
The enthralling sunset view in Oia, the minimal Cycladic architecture, the luxurious hotels, the delicious restaurants, the dramatic rocky landscape, and the volcano are just some of the reasons you’ll have a crush on this unique island!
Located on the southern side of the Aegean sea, Santorini in Greece is a part of the Cyclades islands complex. The island was re-shaped after a huge eruption of the volcano that occurred in the 17th century B.C. and shaped the breathtaking caldera.
The place boasts a unique landscape! The famous caldera, amazing red and black volcanic beaches, and, of course, the volcano’s crater in Nea Kameni, all remind the origins of the island.
The accommodation is incomparable too! Infinity pools, luxury whitewashed villas, and 5 stars service promise to make your stay unforgettable!
Spoil yourself with spa treatments, wine tasting, vineyards tours, shopping and romantic dinners with a view of the endless Aegean Sea.
The ultimate highlight is, obviously, its magical sunset. Watch the sun sinking in the horizon while the sky breaths fire and the colorful light washes up the island, at Fira or Oia. No photo can capture the magic of this moment!
You’ll keep the memories from your holidays in your heart, forever!

HOTELS & ACCOMMODATION
Santorini certainly has some of the best tourist facilities in the Greek islands! When seeking accommodation on the island, you will realize that your options are countless. The famous caldera villages, such as Oia, Firostefani and Imerovigli, are full of excellent hotels and suites, most of which have a traditional style and are designed to offer luxurious accommodation with mesmerizing sea views.
At the same time, several charming boutique hotels can be found in other villages, while the island's beachfront locations offer seaside resorts among other accommodation facilities.
Although it is mostly known for its luxury hotels perched above the caldera, budget hotels and family-friendly resorts are among the possibilities. Another popular option is the villas, which will allow you to spend your vacation privately, with all comforts, enjoying the view in a popular village or appreciating the calmness of a more remote location.
