ESCAPE X SANTORINI

Santorini, one of the most romantic isles in the world. This is an island that anyone can fall in love with not only for it's postcard landscape but for it's culture and dream like setting- a reminder that peace, relaxation and an open mind are a real thing. Iconic for it's gorgeous deep waters and white architecture, the hillside of this island means that waking up everyday falls nothing short of spectacular. For years now Mykonos has been the place to be but that is about to change this Summer as more and more wanderers are making a switch they will never regret. 

Location
Santorini is a dreamy Greek island a hop away from Crete. It's two major towns, Fira and Oia are essential tourist hot spots with Fira providing all the history you desire and Oia, the location of that famous white washed cliffside village that makes this island so easily identified. Santorini's landscape means its a popular location for laid back destination weddings and cruise layovers. Whilst most major airports fly directly, arriving by sea provides you with the ultimate experience as you trek up a hillside and begin to Santorini in a new limelight. 

Where to stay? 
Santorini is known for it's luxury. Whilst you will many find modernised resorts and complex's why not take a risk and go for a local, boutique hotel? Whilst costly, this experience is mostly definitely a tick off your bucket list and more often than not experiencing one of the worlds most treasured possessions can be life changing- and worth it.
