Santorini (Greek: ?????????, pronounced [sado?rini]), officially Thira , is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast from Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera. It forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands, with an area of approximately 73 km2 (28 sq mi) and a 2001 census population of 13,670.

The municipality of Santorini comprises the inhabited islands of Santorini and Therasia and the uninhabited islands of Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Christiana. The total land area is 90.623 km2 (34.990 sq mi). Santorini is part of the Thira regional unit.

It is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements, on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera. A giant central, rectangular lagoon, which measures about 12 by 7 km (7.5 by 4.3 mi), is surrounded by 300 m (980 ft) high, steep cliffs on three sides. The main island slopes downward to the Aegean Sea. On the fourth side, the lagoon is separated from the sea by another much smaller island called Therasia; the lagoon is connected to the sea in two places, in the northwest and southwest. The caldera being 400m deep makes it possible for all but the largest ships to anchor anywhere in the protected bay; there is, however, a newly built marina in Vlychada on the southwestern coast. The principal port is called Athinias. The capital, Fira, clings to the top of the cliff looking down on the lagoon. The volcanic rocks present from the prior eruptions feature olivine and have a notably small presence of hornblende.

It is the most active volcanic center in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc, though what remains today is chiefly a water-filled caldera. The volcanic arc is approximately 500 km (310 mi) long and 20 to 40 km (12 to 25 mi) wide. The region first became volcanically active around 3–4 million years ago, though volcanism on Thira began around 2 million years ago with the extrusion of lavas from vents around the Akrotiri.

The island is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thira eruption), which occurred some 3600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash deposits hundreds of feet deep and may have led indirectly to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, 110 km (68 mi) to the south, through a gigantic tsunami. This theory is not, however, supported by chronology, in that the collapse of the Minoan civilization did not occur at the date of the tsunami, but some 90 years later. Another popular theory holds that the Thira eruption is the source of the legend of Atlantis.

It is an island with long history that has suffered a lot of catastrophes due to volcano eruptions that have changed its shape.

But human power turned to be stronger than rough nature. Today the -almost- lunar scenery with the black, gray and red volcanic rocks has turned into a white state. The mild architecture of Cyclades islands has changed the island's sight. The graphic villages, with the narrow cobblestone pavements, the small squares and their churches impress every visitor. View to volcano that most tourist resorts have- is spectacular. The picture is unique especially the sunset. Photos of Santorini's sunset are all around the world. At dawn all visitors run to Caldera to see the reddish sky.

All of Santorini is a site. The significant archaeological places (Akrotiri, Ancient Thira) the museums, the monasteries, the churches, the tenable settlements, the volcano, all pieces of a puzzle that join yesterday with today and prove how special Santorini is.

Vivid life tempos characterize Santorini. It's one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece with tourist development. It offers high standard services to all visitors.

As for accommodation you will find hotels and rooms to let of all categories that satisfy all demands. Concerning gastronomic delights, Santorini's cuisine is famous for its special dishes, you can accompany with the local wine. Concerning nightlife and options for entertainment Santorini satisfies all preferences.

Santorini has an airport that connects the island with Athens and most of the big cities, while in its port arrive in everyday courses ferries from Piraeus, Crete and the rest of Cyclades islands.

Oia is a cosmopolitan resort in Santorini.

It is widely known for its dream-like sunset. Every dawn people gather in caldera to see that magic moment where the sun disappears in the endless Aegean open sea which takes the reddish colors of the day as it goes by.

It is built on a height of 350 m above the level of the sea and is sited on the north side of the island, 11 km far from Fira.

It distinguishes for its authentic beauty. The carved in rocks settlement, house-caves, that are excavated in rocks, are its characteristic. That kind of houses are found only in Santorini, due to its particular kind of ground.

Oia is the first settlement in Greece identified as preserved not only for its carved in rocks houses but also for its nobility and unique beauty. Even the latest buildings distinguish for their traditional architecture of Cyclades and their unique appearance. Walking through the picturesque paths, you will find a lot of touristic shops ,coffee houses and restaurants. In the evening you can go for drinks in one of the many bars in Oia and enjoy the view under the candle-light.

From Oia you can reach the beach of Ammoudi by car or by our unique traditional donkeys... You can also swim at the beach of Armeni.

Southeast of Oia is located the beach of Koloubos. It is a quiet beach with pebbles just 4 Km from Oia.

PICTURE PERFECT! AND WHAT A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
All I can say is that our stay in Santorini wouldn't have been as amazing as it was without this rental. It was in the perfect location with great views of the Caldera (you can even see the house in certain postcards of Oia, which reinforces to me that this was an amazing location to be at). You didn't get the sunset views from the terrace, but that wasn't a big deal after all. You are (literally) feet from seeing the great views at the castle or along the walls/staircases nearby, so it was still super convenient. And after the first night, I definitely preferred our location to any other area. Also, the location what very close to shopping and eating, so you walked out the door and up a flight of steps to be in the main shopping and dining areas! Perfect!

We ended up renting all the units in this house since there were 10 of us and that ended up being the perfect space. Each unit was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Two of the units had kitchens and the other was a comfortable bedroom with on-suite bath. Each unit had an AC unit that you could turn on, or you could open all the windows and enjoy the breeze and fresh air (which at night is quite comfortable!). The terraces were AMAZING! The views from it “made” our stay there perfect. Relaxing and enjoying the view of the caldera with a glass of wine and a cool breeze….blissful!

We ended up arriving and leaving in the middle of the night, which the Irene convenience coordinated the transportation to and from the rental for us. That made the traveling so much easier to and from the ferry port. Raymont met us at the shuttle drop off point and helped us bring our luggage to the rental, showed us around the rental, and let us know if we needed anything to give him a call. He came by every morning and brought us breakfast (fresh fruits, jams, and bread). We did have an issue with the power going out in two of the unit at some point, but as soon as we called Raymont, he had it fixed very quickly (less than 30 minutes! Great service!)

Thank you Irene and Raymont for making our stay memorable and the best part of our vacation to Greece!

STUNNING PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning, it was an absolutely wonderful experience. Mrs. Irene was my main contact and always prompt, polite, informative, and willing to accommodate anything we needed. I thought it was too good to be true. Thankfully it wasn't and the property was absolutely beautiful. Located right on the caldera with amazing views on multiple terraces to enjoy the view. The units are furnished with every thought which made it feel so comfortable and like we were at home. It was also very tastefully decorated with everything we needed to cook and beyond. Raymont was there to help us get comfortable and brought us fresh breakfast every morning and was there within a few minutes when we needed him for something. He was the cherry on the top for this property! Thank you!
