There’s no denying it: if you’re looking for a knock out escape, Santorini does the trick every time. A volcanic island flung in the shocking blue waters of the Aegean Sea, it is in a league of its own when it comes to romance and old-school down time. With our help, you can look forward to Santorini’s traditional charms, with a hip twist.
Watching the evening sun melt over its charred black cliffs and clinging honeycomb of whitewashed villages – trust us, it’s unreal. But into that add in fantastic restaurants only locals know of, exclusive night spots, and private yachting to volcanic craters, and you’ve got a far more alternative experience than the norm.
Aside from its traditional perception, there are more quirky ways to experience this island – if you know how. Our local contacts will get you under the skin of Santorini like no-one else can.

Looking for the newest and chicest sugar-cubed hide-away on the cliffs of Oia? Or how about a magnificently Zen 4-bedroom villa in Pyrgos decked out in true Cycladic style? We have a portfolio of secret gems to match. Through our fantastic local contacts we can arrange for a master of wine to introduce you to all the good wine makers on the island, and you’ll indulge in private wine tastings (the tastiest tipples are the dry white aromatic wines Nykteri, Assyrtico and the world famous Vinsanto). Santorini has the oldest vines in Greece and it has a fascinating unique style of growing (in a basket shape) to shelter it from the winds for harvest in August.
And this island has become that bit more accessible with Easy Jet flying direct from the UK to Santorini, so if you’re after a mini-break, you can cut out the hassle of flying via Athens. Our suggestion is to go anytime from April through to October. So get booking early and be prepared to be seduced.
This island is outrageously sexy.
