There’s that first fairytale moment that you set eyes on Santorini and see those snow-white layers on top of the cliff dotted with Tiffany blue pools tumbling down into the sea. Once you’ve got your bearings in the maze of pathways where the only traffic is a caravan of donkeys, you’ll be dining in pink-walled restaurants over lobster carpaccio or on butternut wood tables under the stars where Moet and oyster bars overlook stunning black sand beaches.
There are few that don’t know holidays to Santorini are unmissable, and the crowds that throng through the island’s prettiest town, Oia, are testament to this. We’ll tell you to explore early or late to miss the packs, instead spending delicious days on crisp-white restaurant terraces or in private pools looking out to the Aegean Sea. And there are plenty of these. Humble houses have been converted into minimalistic clean-lined cave hotels, infinity pools come with cliff-hugging caldera views and luxurious Champagne lounges are sprinkled with the talcum-white treatment too.
Venturing out you’ll find Santorini holidays are all cable car rides dipping off the edge of the volcano, archaeological ruins that rival Pompeii, a zigzag of slender streets filled with sea green shutters and blue domed churches, and chalky white cliffs crumbling onto pristine grey sands.
