Santorini Getaway

Santorini Getaway

I’ve honestly been so excited about writing this piece about the beautiful village of Oia in Greece. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go after seeing artistic pictures from other visitors and we figured we owed it to ourselves after a successful year.

I’m not a fan of resort holidays with pools where you’re locked away from the actual culture and feel of the country, so although finding a beach and pool was doable in Santorini, it’s more renowned for it’s cobbled streets, irregular white houses, picturesque views and romantic dining - rendering it literally perfect for a couple in search of a local getaway.

We stayed at Residence Suites, situated in the most desired location right in the centre of Oia. (All reviews can be viewed here). Staying in Oia means you can wake up and walk out to breathtaking caldera and sea views. Those staying in other popular parts of Santorini such as Fira or Perissa had to travel by taxi/bus each day to capture the beautiful scenery:




Our days were mainly spent exploring and our evenings spent drinking cocktails and dining. The most incredible thing for me was the amount of quaint little jewellery shops and inspiration at every corner.

What I looked forward to the most was dressing up and joining the hustle and bustle before the 8pm sunset every evening before dinner. Many people gather at the ruined castle to get the best view however we preferred to book a 360 view roof top restaurant a view days in advance.

To sum up, it was honestly the most memorable and romantic islands I have ever been to and I thoroughly recommend. However, do bare in mind that it is not somewhere that should be done on a budget!

My tips; book in advance to get the best deals (August is probably not the best time), stay in Oia on the caldera side and eat at my personal favourite restaurant ‘Floga’.
