“ΤΑ ΑΝΕΞΕΡΕΥΝΗΤΑ ΧΩΡΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΣΑΝΤΟΡΙΝΗΣ”
Ένα εντυπωσιακό φωτορεπορτάζ, δημοσίευσε η μεγαλύτερη αγγλόφωνη εφημερίδα της Ινδίας, Times of iIndia. Εστιάζει σε σημεία που ίσως πολλοί επισκέπτες δεν γνωρίζουν και τονίζει την ιδιαίτερη ομορφιά τους
“Η Σαντορίνη έχει γίνει το πρόσωπο της Ελλάδας.
Μια απλή αναφορά στην Ελλάδα, και μπορεί κανείς να φανταστεί τα εντυπωσιακά ηλιοβασιλέματα δίπλα στη θάλασσα, περιτριγυρισμένα από γαλάζια και λευκά σπίτια στο νησί.
Αυτό το μοναδικό και αλλόκοσμο ελληνικό νησί είναι μια απόλαυση των ταξιδιωτών, αλλά υπάρχουν πολλά περισσότερα να κάνετε και να εξερευνήσετε σε αυτό το μικρό νησί, εκτός από το να πιείτε κρασί στα παραθαλάσσια εστιατόρια”.
A WALK THROUGH SANTORINI’S BEAUTIFUL UNEXPLORED VILLAGES
A walk through Santorini’s beautiful unexplored villages
Santorini has become the face of Greece; mere mention of Greece, and one can imagine the stunning sunsets by the sea, surrounded with blue and white houses on the island. This unique and otherworldly Greek island is a travellers’ delight but there is a lot more to do and explore on this small island besides sipping wine at the seaside restaurants.
Here’s our pick of some offbeat, unexplored villages that one can visit on their trip to Santorini.
Another incredible village on the island is Finikia, which stands out for its old-world charm and Greek authenticity. This perfectly well-preserved village in Santorini is only a few kilometres’ drive from the crowded city of Oia. It is also home to some incredible beaches and beautiful vineyards. Baxedon Beach and Sigala winery are the top attractions of the village.
The coastal village of Monolithos is around 8 km east of Fira in Santorini. The village is home to less than 500 people. An offbeat place to visit in Santorini, the hamlet is named after a homonymous rock, on which the church of Agios Ioannis stands today. Monolithos is a small village but the destination features Santorini State Airport and the Tomato Industrial Museum.
Spend a day at Emporio
Also known as Nimborio, Emporio is the largest village on the island of Santorini with a very small population of around 1800 villagers. The whole village looks like a fairy castle! Set on the foothills of Prophet Elias, this village has the most romantic setting in Greece. The Tower of Goula and Kastelli are some of the prominent places to visit here.
Capture Oia in your camera
Oia is one of the most photographed villages in Santorini. The place is renowned for its magical sunset views and romantic cave houses. There are several pretty beachside cafes and boutiques where one can shop for traditional Greek items. Adventure junkies can also enjoy cliff-diving here.
A day at Pyrgos
Another beautiful village in Santorini is Pyrgos. The stunning village, with a population of 732, is among the five inhabited castles of the island. A hidden gem, this picturesque Greek village is an ideal stop for families looking for some quietude. The village has beautiful churches, a main square, and quaint little coffee shops.
