When in Santorini


24h in Santorini



It’s mid April and I touched down in Santorini only for a day but the outcome admittedly was more than overwhelming!


This season the island is literally covered by daisies and is a visual miracle.


Sky views, sensational cliffside scenery, hotel buildings and infinity swimming pools excite and inspire everyone who wishes to visit the Cycladic island.

We visited a lovely picturesque village called Pyrgos, situated 8 km southeast of Fira.


The village is located on a fabulous spot on top of a hill and displays incredible panoramic views of the island. Actually it is the highest village of the whole island.


Furthemore, it is reported that Pyrgos used to be the capital of the island until the early 1800s. Today, the village of Santorini counts no more than 500 inhabitants. However, Pyrgos boasts vineyards, churches,  narrow streets and  traditional houses.

Santorini’s world-famous Red Beach looks spectacular and the scenery creates an unreal and hostile contrast with the rest of the environment. The blood-colored cliffs and their brutality is why this beach is so famous and beautiful.






And after a few strolls around the idyllic island, we reached Oia. An unsurpassed experience!


Picturesque houses, blue and white combinations, narrow isles with beautiful color palettes. Moreover the uncountable small churches and the endless blue of the aegean, makes its beauty impossible to forget.
