It’s all about the sunset when you vacation at Villa Cowrie, set on the cliff edge of the traditional fishing village of Oia, on the north coast of the Cycladic island of Santorini, set in the southern Aegean Sea. From the terrace, this beautiful villa commands uninterrupted sea views, and captures the famous flaming red sunsets every day after dusk. The villa is built out of classical Cycladic whitewashed walls, with curved dome roof interiors, which are cool in summer, and warm in winter. This one-bedroom property can accommodate up to three guests, two in the double room, and one on the convertible sofa bed.

A stay in Villa Cowrie would make the most idyllic holiday for a couple, or even better, the most romantic honeymoon hot spot. The villa comes with all the mod cons, including complimentary air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout. Villa Cowrie has been furnished with contemporary pieces, and decorated in a palette of soft whites and powder blues. This light and airy home from home has an open-plan living space, with a soft blue sofa bed, coffee tables, and a flat-screen television. The galley-style kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cater for your holiday. The beautifully dressed bedroom can be accessed via a separate corridor, and up some steps to a double bed in a semi-circular room with a domed ceiling, and fitted cupboards. The adjacent bathroom is rather funky, painted in a soft silver-grey stone, with a walk-in rain shower, an arty mirrored vanity unit, and a WC. The terrace has stunning sea views, and sun loungers from which to watch the boats sail by. Take the stairs up to the Jacuzzi, and sit and watch the eternal sunsets, cocktail in hand.

Villa Cowrie can be found on the outskirts of the iconic picture postcard town of Oia, on the north coast of Santorini, a Cycladic island in the southern Aegean Sea. The villa is eighteen kilometres from Santorini’s International Airport, and twenty kilometres from the port of Athinios. Arrive by plane from European destinations and Athens, island hop by ferry and catamaran, or if you are feeling super stylish, you can even make an entrance by helicopter. The villa is just a few minutes walk from the nearest minimart and shops for provisions to cater for your holidays. Cafes and bars, restaurants and nightclubs are within walking distance.

The nearest beach is Katharos, a seven hundred metre walk away, this secluded unspoilt, unorganised beach has dark sand and pebbles, and is far away from the madding tourist crowds. The town of Oia is rather magical, a fishing village, with a maze of colourful lanes, populated with exclusive boutiques, leading down to the harbour. Seek solace in blue-domed Greek Orthodox churches, tilt at windmills, visit the Naval Museum, cliff dive off Ammoudi Bay, and then enjoy freshly caught seafood, on the seafront. Stay for the famous sunsets, after all, it’s what we all came on holiday for. Stroll the nine-kilometre trail and hike the Caldera edge until you get to the capital town of Fira, on the west coast. In Fira town centre there are lots of museums, choose from the Santorini Wine Museum, the Archeological Museum of Thera, the Museum of Prehistoric Fira, or the Tomato Museum. Take a walk up the top of Thera Mountain, where you can explore the ancient city ruins, and admire the views from the world’s only sunken caldera.

Take a boat trip to the uninhabited islet of Nea and Palia Kameni, an active volcano, with a path of black lava rock, smoking craters, and sulphurous hot springs. Visit the villages and find out what life was really like. Highly recommended is Pyrgos, found in the foothills of Mount Profitis, surrounded by vineyards that produce the highly prized Assyrtiko white wines. Take a trip back in time as you walk down the steep medieval alleyways, populated with tavernas and wine bars, art galleries and gift shops, a museum that showcases traditional island life, and one that is home to religious relics in the former Agia Triada chapel. Don’t miss a visit to Akrotiri, a prehistoric city, that was believed to be the first settlement on the island dating back to Neolithic times. For more recent history, The Arygyros Mansion has guided tours of this neo-classical Venetian merchant’s home. Santorini hosts an annual film festival, and the twice-daily film screenings at the alfresco Cine Kamari are not to be missed.

The island is renowned for its fabulous wines, most especially the crisp dry whites, take a tour of one of the many vineyards, and make sure you take a bottle home with you. The Cycladic architecture, the blue domes, and the most stunning sunsets are what the island is famous for, and to help you capture those memories, you can even take a photography tour. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this most mystical of destinations, spend a day island hopping, swimming and snorkelling in the azure Aegean Sea, enjoying a meal of Greek meze on board, or simply watching the sunset as you sail back into the harbour.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

There are lots for kids to do and see when you holiday on the beautiful island of Santorini. The villa has a sea view terrace and a Jacuzzi, for a cooling down dip. The town centre of Oia is ten minutes away, where you can all walk the winding lanes of this original fishing village, which dates to the Middle Ages and is believed to be linked to the Lost City of Atlantis. Explore the picturesque blue-domed town, and discover the iconic windmills, originally built to grind wheat for bread. Your older children may like to hike the caldera edge, a nine-kilometre walk to the town of Fira on the west coast. Santorini is populated with the most incredible volcanic black, red, and white, sandy beaches, with superb crystal clear water sea.

The nearest beach is Kathoros, a walkable seven hundred metres from the villa, an unspoilt, unorganised pebbly beach with a rocky landscape and steep entry, which may not be suitable for younger children. Alternatively, Baxedes beach is organised with sun beds and brollies, it has dark sand and pebbles, and easy entry to shallow waters. Particularly recommended for being family-friendly with organised facilities, cafes and bars, and some with water sports, are the black sand Monolithos, Pristina, Kamari, Red, White, and Perivolos beaches. Beware the darker sand can get very hot in high season, and aqua shoes are a must for adults and children alike.

A day out to the island’s capital town Fira is a fifteen-kilometre journey by car. Here you can visit museums, discover archaeological sites, climb up ancient Thera, and marvel at the volcanic caldera. No holiday in Santorini is complete without a family day at sea, joining a boat tour, hiring a catamaran, or charter a yacht, and island hopping around the Cyclades. Swim, snorkel, and scuba in azure seas, dine aboard on a meal of Greek meze, get on a jet ski, or learn how to stand up paddleboard. Children love a trip to the live volcanic islet of Nea and Palia Kameni, where you can walk through black lava, smoking craters, and smelly sulphurous springs. Have some fun at the mini golf in Kamari, where you can all practice your putting. Go on a jeep safari and take a tour of the villages, learn about the local flora and fauna, and traditional way of life.

Absorb the history of the island at Akrotiri, where they can explore one thousand year old ruins, in an area dating back to 4500BC. Take them to SAWA, an animal sanctuary for the island’s dogs, cats, and donkeys. As the sun sets, watch the stars under the stars, at the alfresco Cine Kamari, where you can all enjoy a screening of your favourite movies.
