Santorini is the product of a massive eruption with towering black cliffs that rise sheer from a cobalt blue sea, topped with an icing of tiny white buildings and blue-domed churches with elegant campaniles, all perched precariously on the very edge of the cliffs.
Our Recommended Santorini Properties
Dramatic by day, the view is nothing short of spectacular at sunset as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon and is only one of the many reasons why many of our clients choose our holidays to Santorini.
Many of the tiny whitewashed houses clinging precipitously to the crater’s rim were hacked straight from the volcanic rock: today these “cave dwellings” have been converted into some of the finest and most luxurious accommodation you will find anywhere; all of it small, exclusive and intimate. Many Santorini luxury hotels and apartments are concentrated in the three closely neighbouring villages of Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli and in Oia, at the northernmost tip of the island: all share the same awe-inspiring view.
Historians will find the sites of Akrotiri and Ancient Fira fascinating, others will enjoy visiting the old port at the foot of the cliffs, either by cable car, donkey or on foot, whilst those with more cosmopolitan tastes will enjoy browsing in the many boutiques and jewellery stops of lively Fira.
