Top Luxury Vacation Spot: Santorini
Santorini: romantic, stunning and simply unforgettable. This unique island, otherwise known as Thira, located within Greece’s Cyclades Islands in the middle of the Agean Sea, is famous for its sunsets (said by some to be unparallelled), pretty blue-domed churches, black sanded beaches and breathtaking views. Santorini is famous for all kinds of luxury vacations, from romantic getaways to dream honeymoons, from unforgettable weddings to fun-filled island escapes with friends.
Santorini, once one single island, is actually a sparkling string of five volcanic islands, the main one plunging into a startling caldera. When approaching Santorini on your yacht charter, you’ll be greeted by alabaster shores, hidden coves and spindly roads that carve their way up to the towns perched on the cliffs. The iconic white-washed homes tumble down the cliffs at Oia, Santorini’s charming town known mainly for its spectacular sunset celebrations.
Hike through the volcanoes, relax on black and red beaches and go scuba diving into Santorini’s crystal clear sea. There’s no limit to what you can do on this breathtaking island. Santorini is home to legendary beaches and stunning villages. Everywhere you look, the scenery takes your breath away. Go horseback riding (or donkey riding!) snorkeling in the aquamarine water and soak up the never ending sunshine on the colorful sands.
When is the best time to go to Santorini?
September is a perfect time to visit this beautiful island as the tourists crowds have left and a sense of calm descends but the weather is still clement. It’s also a great time for wine-lovers to visit. Santorini and wine have a long history together (stretching back to the Bronze Age) and Santorini’s wines are delicious and different. Strong and bursting with flavor, Santorini’s wines are unique due to the porous, volcanic soil and the grapes are grown in a special way. Santorini wine making takes place during August, so by September most of the hard is done and the fruits of the grape harvesters labour can be enjoyed!
Where to stay?
Located in the luxurious Oia, in the north west of the island, this famous, historical listed building was once owned by a wealthy ship owner and has been fully renovated to the highest standards while retaining its authenticity and atmosphere of its era (it was constructed in 1840). It has accommodated Greek Prime Minister & other distinguished guests! Located above the castle it offers one of the best sunset views in Oia.
Enjoy panoramic views of the infinity pool and the volcanic island and experience the unique services of Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel. Enjoya a sensual experience of Santorini in surroundings of understated elegance. All accommodation is lovingly handcrafted from wood, local stone and glass. Cushions of antique textiles. Plump luxurious towels. Enticing patterns carved into the walls. Slatted wooden decks that lead to the plunge pool surrounded by sun beds for the utmost relaxation.
Standing proud on the Caldera cliffs in a unique setting on the road to Oia, is found one of the most stylish & luxurious Santorini vacation rentals: the Architect’s House. A place where you can cherish moments of sleek elegance in inimitably private surroundings with majestic views of the endless Aegean Blue, the Caldera, the Volcano and unique sunsets. The Architect’s House is a place to choose for a relaxing, untroubled and private holiday in a home away from your own.
Private sightseeing tour of Santorini. This exclusive private tour steers clear of the well-beaten tourist trail and offers a different view of Santorini – the best the island has to offer. Through local contacts, we can arrange for a master of wine to introduce you to all the good wine makers on the island, and you’ll indulge in private wine tastings (the tastiest tipples are the dry white aromatic wines Nykteri, Assyrtico and the world famous Vinsanto). Santorini has the oldest vines in Greece and it has a fascinating unique style of growing (in a basket shape) to shelter it from the winds for harvest in August.
