"SUN SET PARADISE" Santorini Island by Lomma

Santorini Island Travel Guide: 1,570 reviews and 5,121 photos


After 10 new years My houseband and I went for our 20 year anniversary holiday to Santorini. Repeating ourselves from 10 years ago to this very special and fantastic place. Santorini is by far a spectacular place to visit and if you can try to spend at least one day in your life there just to experience the Greek Post Card effect then do it.

Again we stayed at the village Oia on top of Santorini and again we stayed at The Traditional House Esperas that is located at the very top of Oia - below the windmill and facing the Kaldera and you can also see Ios from there. At the bottom of the hill the small village Ammoudi Bay can be seen straight down from the balconys of the hotel.

The hotelrooms are buildt in caves and all diffrently and beatifully decorated.

The pool is also half way in a cave which made the whole place so great. No kids were allowed under 12 - which was also a thrill. No jumping and screeming kids around when you wanted just peace in mind.

The sunset of Oia was just lovely and reminded me a little bit of home (where it is also beautiful) We sat there every evening on our balcony and watched the sun go down in the sea with a glass of champagne.

Caldera Walk

If you brought your GOOD walking shoes with you to Santorini, take a walk along the Caldera cliff. Either from Fira (or sub villages along the route) to Oia or from Oia to Fira. Take about 2 - 3 hours. It is really recommended that you have good shoes. We met people with only slippers and bad shoes, and I think it may stirr up a good walkabout. The caldera walk is fantastic and the view is just magnifissent.

OIA - the photo city

By far about 95 % of all Greek postcards must have been taken here...say no more...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful, pittoresque, special, nothing like it
  • Cons:Stairs, Labyrint, EXPENSIVE, not for kids at OIA.
