Perched on the lip of a volcano and freckled with white-washed towns, Santorini holidays make for a gorgeous short haul retreat with your loved one or family. One of the idyllic Cyclades Islands in Greece, located in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is unique in that it's a remnant of a volcanic caldera. Holidays to Santorini are loved for their laid-back atmosphere, with calm clifftop villages rich in colour and contrast, incredible baroque architecture and unmissable melting sunsets.

The two principle resorts of Fira and Oia offer a romantic stay on the clifftop, complete with iconic blue-domed churches clinging to the steep slopes of the caldera, museums, shops and a fantastic selection of bars and restaurants. The best time to go on Santorini holidays is during the months of late April through to September, with August being the hottest month averaging at a toasty 27°C! Or, why not grab a cheap last minute deal and avoid peak season by visiting from October to April instead? Don't worry, the milder Mediterranean weather is still pleasantly warm.

The list of things to do in Santorini for couples, friends and families are vast. Relax on the dark, Blue Flag Kamari Beach which hosts an array of watersports, beach bars and waterfront restaurants, wander the streets of ancient Thira, which boasts a blend of St. Tropez-style boutiques and impressive Byzantine ruins, or attend the famous annual Jazz Festival for an artistic afternoon. Holidays to Santorini attract a relaxed, boho crowd that seek ultimate R&R with a splash of adventure thrown in, with exciting day trips available to the island's volcanoes and hot springs, local wine tasting, and chic shopping spots to browse. Combining beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, some of the world's best wine and incredible clifftop eateries - Santorini holidays make for an enchanting escape.

History & Culture

 

History & Culture

Located in the south west of the island, the ruins of Akrotiri date back to the Bronze Age and are widely considered to be one of the most important archeological digs in the world. They were discovered in the mid-19th century, where the buildings are still being unearthed today. Around 40 buildings have been excavated, which once made up the Minoan town before it was buried in volcanic ash.

 
Food & Drink

 

Food & Drink

Santorini is heaven for foodies. Local cheeses, washed down with delicious, crisp white wines from the vineyards that dot the island’s hillsides, make for the perfect leisurely lunch. The rather charmingly named Donkey Brewery in Santorini brews local beers or head to one of the island’s wineries to sample the wines made from the local white grape - Assyrtiko. Cheers!

 
Emporio Village

 

Emporio Village

Pretty Emporio village is the largest on the island and is famous for its windmills and iconic blue-domed churches. Overlooking the sweeping beaches of Perissa and Perivolos, visitors can roam its cobbled streets and explore its old castle, spired churches and pretty squares.
