Enjoy a holiday in a holiday home on the island of Santorini in the Aegean! Santorini is located in the south of Greece, and is a very popular and exclusive holiday destination, because this island is one of the most beautiful Greek islands. The steep crater wall with whitewashed houses that protrude above the crater ridge is characteristic for this beautiful volcanic island. The deep blue crater basin caldera is a hotspot for cruise ships.
Book a holiday home in Santorini from April to early June. Then you end up in a fabulous, colourful landscape, and you don't have to share the beaches with many other tourists yet. But even in the high season (the summer months) there are still deserted bays and beaches to find where you can relax completely!
The popular Karmari beach is also called 'the black beach'. Along the flat east coast of the island, you will find many sandy and pebble beaches. Go from your holiday address on Santorini, to the beach of Perissa. Other attractions for water sports enthusiasts and beach lovers are the Balos Bay or the beach of Monoloithos, which is very popular among surfers.
It is said that the island could be the mysterious island of Atlantis. In any case, this typical and original Greek island seems to have similarities with the descriptions of Atlantis. Go out and taste the unique atmosphere of Santorini for yourself!
From your holiday address, visit Santorini Thira, the capital of Santorini. Thira has its own airport with many charter companies, as well as an international marina. Because of the many tourists, the island is easily accessible. Night owls can enjoy themselves in Thira in the many bars, clubs, discotheques and taverns. After sunset, Thira changes into an international party scene with a very varied entertainment program.
Santorini caldera, Three Bells of Fira, Akrotiri Lighthouse, Ancient Thera, Museum of Prehistoric Thera, Red Beach, and Profitis Ilias are some of the best places to visit on Santorini.
