Santorini is an unique crescent shaped island formed by an early volcanic eruption and has the most breathtaking views of
all the Greek Islands. The "lost continent of Atlentis" myth originated here..
Santorini has plenty of romantic traditional lodgings, hotels, villas and cave-houses along the cliff side of the Caldera.

Oia - situated at the most northern part of the island, is 10km from the Capital, Fira Town.
Oia is a beautiful, exquisite small town with panoramic views to the Volcano and overlooking the Caldera.

Oia is ideal for peaceful and romantic vacations, as it's both an extremely picturesque and an
artistic village. Here you can enjoy a magnificent golden sunset, one of the most famous in the world! The most popular spot to watch sunset is by the Kastro walls.

The village was also, devastated by the 1956 earthquake and has never completely recovered, but it is dramatic, striking and quieter than tourist-frenzied Fira, although it's narrow passageways are also filled with art galleries, craft shops, expensive jewellery boutiques, souvenir shops, restaurants and coffee shops. The town hosts a cultural centre, and many cave houses and traditional homes have been converted into luxury boutique hotels.

There are now 3 web pages for presentation & hotels in Oia village: presentation + top 5 star hotels, medium category hotels, and the more economical tourist types hotels.

As seen on a zillion postcards, the characteristic classic view of Oia, is the bright white and blue of the church contrasting with the deep blue of the Aegean Sea in the background.
Houses, paths, churches are built up skillfully and still gives the feel of a traditional village
