Good morning, dear friends!
The most relaxing spot on the island is probably your hotel. Where the gaze rests with breathtaking views over the sea which stretches lazily on your feet. Take deep breaths and feel the magical energy of the island. Leave all your senses to lure you in the tranquil atmosphere and feel free. With a glass of local wine and your book, experience the most rejuvenating vacation of your life!
… Kamari – Ancient Thera
As there is a strong north wind today, we recommend a beautiful but challenging route that can be done by car and on foot. From Kamari, you can take the road up to the archaeological site of Ancient Thera. Just before the top, you can stop the car and walk right to the church of the Zoodochos Pigi, hidden in the rock. Do not forget to see the cave with running water behind the church!
At the top, at the entrance of Ancient Thera, you can enjoy the panoramic view both of Kamari and Perissa and of course walk around the archaeological site of Ancient Thera (open 08.00 – 15.00 daily except Mondays).
… Castle of Akrotiri
The Venetian castle of Akrotiri is located 1km from the archaeological site of prehistoric Akrotiri. It is one of the five Venetian castles that used to dominate on the island (together with the castles of Emporeio, Pyrgos, Oia and Skaros rock).
The castle is located in the middle of the village but unfortunately it was badly damaged by the 1956 earthquake. In recent years significant efforts have been made to restore the site.
Beach & Weather Report
Even the clouds have a particular beauty on this island, with the never ending playing between the rays of the sun and the imaginative formations of the clouds in the open horizon. We will need a jacket, however, in the evening, as it the weather will be quite windy!
Vlychada: Enjoy the quiet and beautiful beach all by yourself and get into its relaxed rhythm!
Perissa – Kamari: Enjoy the sun in the peculiar black beaches and spoil yourselves just a bit with service at the beach.
