Escape to the charming Greek Island of Santorini on your next holiday, with guaranteed, gorgeous scenery. Whether you’re enjoying a romantic Greece getaway in a private Santorini Villa with your own plunge pool overlooking the Caldera, or watching a world-renowned sunset in Oia, a coastal town with picture-perfect whitewashed houses carved into the cliff tops – a holiday in Santorini will be one of indulgence.
Picture-perfect postcard scenery is what to expect with a holiday to Oia. This charming village is a hotspot for honeymooners looking for a beautiful destination to toast to newly married life. Stroll through this whitewashed village, making sure to stop by a sea view restaurant for lunch then picking up souvenirs in the local gift and art shops on the way back to your villa. Stunning views of the Caldera can be seen from Oia, which is a world-renowned spot for watching those breathtaking sunsets.
Discover Fira, Santorini’s capital and Instagram-worthy destination, where iconic white washed houses with bright blue domes flood your camera feed. A visit to the Old Port, which can be accessed either by cable car or down 600 steep stone steps allowing you access to a hub of restaurants and shops is worthwhile. From here, you can hop on a boat excursion including visiting the Nea Kameni, hot springs at Palia Kameni or a show stopping sunset cruise.
Swap the serene for a lively beach escape in Kamari, a traditional Greek village known best for its ashy-black coastline and laid back charisma. Although laid back, there’s plenty to keep you occupied, with a café-lined promenade, open-air cinema and Roman baths.
A holiday to Santorini wouldn’t be complete without a hike up Skaros Rock, and a holiday to Imerovigli serves as your gorgeous gateway. Take in those gorgeous 360 views as you climb Skaros Rock, to reveal more and more of the gorgeous ocean and village panoramas.
