Santorini Hotels

European holidays

The picturesque island of Santorini is a travellers paradise. Stunning sea views, dark volcanic sands and hotels built into the cliff side are just some of the Instagram-worthy sights you will find here.

Signature white-washed buildings, cobbled streets and blue-domed churches line this picture-perfect, cliff-side town. Team this with long hot summers, superb cuisine and not forgetting the fine wine of the region, and it’s no wonder travel-hungry holiday-makers flock to its shore year after year.


Heavily influenced by the volcanic landscape, Santorini beaches are often black sand beaches or small red and black pebble beaches with crystal-clear waters. Kamari and Perissa Beaches offer a lively atmosphere with plenty of beachside bars and dining options available along the shoreline. For a truly unique experience, a visit to Red Beach is a must. Aptly names after its copper-toned sands this rustic beach is set in front of a stunning mountain backdrop with little else around.


Emblematic of Greece, Santorini’s Cycladic architecture with its blue domed churches has become synonymous with the island. For a taste of the true Santorini head to one of the five ancient castles or wander around the many churches and religious monuments the island has to offer.

Food & Drink

The cuisine in Santorini is unlike any other Greek island. Traditional Greek dishes are readily available but there is also a large number of signature dishes originating from this small island. We recommend trying the Santorini classic, Sfoungato – a variation on an omelette with courgette, tomato and potato. Fresh seafood is also very popular here, along with locally produced cheeses and a variety of sweet treats. As for drinks, Santorini produces some of the region’s best wine. A trip to a vineyard is always a great way to see this.


The capital of Santorini, Fira, boasts a lively nightlife with plenty of bars and clubs to keep you going all night. Coastal resorts such as Kamari and Perissa offer a blend of chic beachfront bars and lively atmospheric bars while Oia is the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
