2015 was Greece’s year, although not necessarily for good reasons. Greece has made the media spotlight for it’s shambolic economy that closed down ATMs and banks and froze money coming in and out of Greece. But let’s look at the positives coming from Greece: a travel-lusting destination. I know at least 6 couples that are currently in Greece: Mykonos for the party people, Santorini for couples or Sani Resort for families, there’s something for everyone.
For a romantic long weekend a deux, sans kids, Santorini is my top pick. Often chosen as a top honeymoon destination, Oia never fails to impress with those towering views over the underwater volcano. It is a quick, direct Easjyet flight and in a few hours you could be basking in the Greek sun.
In Oia, all the hotels share the same views, so you can’t go wrong. Here are some of the hotels I recommend:
- Pezoules Hotel: www.http://pezoules.gr
- Katikies Hotel: http://www.katikies.com
- Kirini Suites & Spa: http://www.kirini.com
- Perivolas: http://www.perivolas.gr
- Mystique: http://mystique.gr
And the restaurant not to miss is the Sunset Taverna in the fishing village down the other side of the mountain. Fresh Greek Seabream there is an absolute must when visiting Oia.
Don’t forget a boat ride around the island, also another must-do.
Here are some photos. Go on, lust away.
