There are many seaside resorts to be found around the Greek islands, with high-quality hotels to meet all expectations and Hellenic people, well-known for their hospitality, will welcome holiday visits under an ever-present sun.


Santorini

Santorini

 

Santorini, this Ionian island, located in the south of the Aegean Sea, has become one of the main points of attraction in Greece. Famous for its incredible landscapes, the heavenly image of white villages with blue roofs perched on top of cliffs is rooted in everyone's mind. From the heights of the island, the horizon is striking and the turquoise waters sparkle under the sun that shines more than 300 days a year.
In addition to its breathtaking scenery, Santorini has a rich history that you will discover by wandering through the maze of narrow streets or by exploring the island's wilder places. While staying on this Antique territory and remains of an island destroyed by an eruption, you will also have the chance to visit archeological sites and museums recalling its fascinating history.
