Santorini Secret Premium is set amidst Santorini’s most prestigious and romantic location, the enchanting Oia. Apart from the world famous sunset that creates a masterpiece in the sky at dusk on a daily basis, the striking views of the Caldera’s volcanic strata and the imposing, dormant Volcano, Oia is the island’s most picturesque settlement filled with traditional houses, tavernas, cafes and shops that create a vivid amalgam of vibrant colours. Blooming bougainvilleas and quaint cobblestone paths will lead you to a number of iconic landmarks that are worth discovering during your stay. From a number of blue dome churches that are almost synonymous with the island of Santorini to the Venetian Castle, Oia is a place that fully represents all that the our cosmopolitan Cycladic island stands for.
Venetian Castle of Oia
Strategically built on Oia’s most elevated position, the historic Venetian Castle stands proudly until this day, offering truly majestic views from it’s unique vantage point. Built in 1480, the castle counts many centuries of existence and visiting it will fill you with a sense of awe and admiration. Also known as the ‘Kasteli’ of Agios Nikolaos amongst the locals, it is something definitely worth experiencing, especially if you visit it during sunset.
Within walking distance from Santorini Secret Premium, the Marine Museum allows you to immerse into the naval culture of the island, and discover a different side of Santorini. An authentic captain’s manor welcomes each visitor and takes them on a journey back in time, to the marine glory days when Santorini had a strong naval presence.
Santorini’s airport is situated at about 18 km from Oia, and is easily accessible to and from Santorini Secret Premium by way of a wonderful route that will give you a taste of the more provincial side of the island.
