When you close your eyes and dream of your Greek Island getaway do you imagine being perched on a cliff, looking out over the dazzling blue ocean, cool wine in hand, with blindingly white-washed houses behind you? Santorini is the one for you. Sure, you get this on the other islands that make up the Cyclades, but Santorini is the cream of the crop. When the ever-brilliant sunsets light up the cliffs and the buildings you may just think you’ve died and gone to heaven.

These islands revolve around providing the best ever holiday experience for everyone who sets foot on them. They all have great nightlife, and Santorini is no exception. But Santorini is also the best option for those looking for something a little more… sophisticated. It’s all about the delicious dining, wineries, micro-breweries, and relaxing sundowners on balconies. That’s what a holiday in Santorini is about.

For a bit of culture and history head to the traditional village of Oia. Make sure you climb down the 300 steps to the little port of Ammoudi. The views are absolutely worth it.

The recently excavated and well preserved ancient city of Ancient Akrotiri is a must-visit for an insighful glimpse into ancient Greek life.
