Greek Luxury: Discover the Splendor of Santorini Island

Beautiful white and blue houses on precipitous hills making one dizzy, a mysterious volcano, and spectacular views: and luxury hotels. One can find everything on this gorgeous Island. Some writers and mystics consider Santorini to be a part of the lost continent of Atlantis. Romantic poets say – it’s an Island of Love. They seem to be absolutely right. It’s unique; and a  ‘MUST VISIT’ place.

How to get to Santorini island

It was during my second time on Santorini, that its beauty really carried me away. Many tourists make the mistake of going there just for a day trip. This just doesn’t give you the opportunity to feel the soul of Santorini. So next time I went there for a whole weekend. Only then did I realise how mysterious and peaceful this island really was.

Santorini is also known as the Thera; or the Santa Irini Island. The island obtained its present ‘New Moon’ shape during a mighty volcanic eruption in the 15th century BC. The eruption made the central part of the island sink, leaving a high cliff caldera and the volcano in the middle.

We chose a hotel with a caldera view on the west of the Island . This is where the most expensive hotels were located. But next time I want to stop at the Vedema Luxury Resort; with a high surrounding wall it is situated in the center of the island in the medieval village of Megalohori. Built around a 400-year old winery, it overlooks the magnificent vineyards. Located far from tourist routes it is often chosen for its privacy by famous Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt.

The silence is unbelievable: and you get a view of a sleeping volcano. The last great eruption happened in 1956, so nowadays you can even go there on excursions.

The white and blue architecture was not traditional for Santorini until the Ottoman occupation. Local legend has it that in those days the Greeks were forbidden to use their blue-white flag. So one night (as an act of protest) they painted all their houses into the colors of their national flag.

I still remember my first trip. It was to London. I fell in love with this city the moment I saw it. Just - "click", and my heartbeat quickened. I was chosen by it. Red and funny double-decker buses, serious black cabs, the gorgeous Buckingham palace... That's it! I am your admirer forever! From that moment I have visited many places and have been to many countries. Traveling became my passion. My long lasting love, which I hope will never end.
