Santorini’s unique landscape was formed during an ancient volcanic eruption. Believed by some to be the legendary lost city of Atlantis, the ancient Minoan site of Akrotiki is Santorini’s most striking historical site. Encased in rock, the city offers some excellently preserved mosaics and Minoan artifacts.
These days, Santorini has become known as one of Greece’s most heavenly summer destinations. The volcanic caldera is home to astounding landscapes rich with cliff top towns, excellent wines, fine art, culture, history and hiking. Lace up those boots and enjoy the views from the peaks. Many of our luxury Santorini villas are perched directly on mountainsides, offering some the best high altitude views you’ll find anywhere in the Cyclades.
Of course, while you’re here, be sure to try some of the superb results of Santorini’s viticulture: there’s a centuries old tradition of wine production here. Let us arrange a local expert to bring a selection directly to your villa, where you can sample them on the patio beside your pool. Alternatively, you can delight your palate with a tipple on board an Aegean cruise. As you gaze across the crystal clear waters with the sun illuminating the sapphire sky, you’ll find it hard to believe this was once a place of fire and brimstone.
