Luxury Santorini Holidays

Clifftop villages, peach-toned sunsets and volcano views

Santorini takes you to one of the most spectacular Greek islands. It’s located in the Cyclades and has had a rich, interesting history dating back to ancient Greece. Its beautiful interior landscapes and unique flavours of wine and produce are created by the large volcano and crater on the north west side of the island, where you’ll find whitewashed towns which spread over the hillside, overlooking the ocean below.

Head to the south of Santorini for spectacular beaches, including golden sands, white sands, black sands, and even red sands. On the north west coast of the island are some of the top holiday villages, like Oia. Here you can enjoy spectacular views from the volcano, sunsets over the ocean and some of the island’s best restaurants. Just minutes away is the island’s capital, Fira, which is home to a further selection of bars and restaurants, art galleries, museums, and much more.

Luxury holidays in Santorini

Luxury holidays in Santorini come as standard. It’s well known for its bright white buildings and azure blue details, as well as little churches and a fascinating history. Climb a volcano, take a winery tour and taste some of the unique flavours created by the volcanic soil or enjoy a romantic boat trip with champagne over sunset. Towns like Imerovigli and Pyrgos offer easy access to the capital and close proximity to some of the island’s best beaches, as well as their own selection of boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

Destinations in Santorini
Imerovigli roosts on the precipitous west coast just north of Thira. People pilgrimage here for the world-famous sunset – and stay for the terraced, whitewashed streets with wide-open sea views.
Ever fancied staying on a volcano? Northerly Oia town perches on a dormant caldera with panoramic sea, town and sunset views. It also serves up a rich maritime past.
The luminously white village of Pyrgos drapes itself over a hill on the west side of Santorini. Surprisingly green countryside closes in on all sides – including some top-notch vineyards.

Flight Information

The flight to Santorini is around 3 hours 45 minutes from the UK. 

When to go

Like most Greek islands, Santorini’s long summer months stretch from April through to September or October. The dry, sunny spring months are warm enough for beach-going and sightseeing, and average highs top 30°C in July and August. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.

My last visit to Santorini was as part of an island-hopping itinerary with Mykonos. It was an absolutely fantastic experience - Santorini was lovely and relaxed (with incredible views), while Mykonos had a livelier atmosphere and was great for nightlife.
