Another Greek island and another lovely experience and perhaps Santorini is the closest to heaven on earth that you can ever get. The volcanic and rocky landscape makes you wonder how and why people ever settled here in the first place, but then you get up from the dock to the top of the island and understand immediately - the view is breathtaking! Our hotel was little and quaint with friendly staff. The room modern, clean and very nicely decorated and the piece de resistance was the balcony with an incredible view out over the caldera and it was fantastic for viewing the wonderful sunset. That is also where the spa was located and I can personally recommend sitting in there with a bottle of red wine and some snacks as the sun goes down is just the ticket before going out for dinner. In the morning you call reception and your breakfast is served on your balcony which was absolutely lovely too. One little warning though don't leave your breakfast for a minute as there are plenty of little birds who want to share with you.
Perhaps the only drawback was the enthusiasm passersby had for our cute location as they couldn't help to come by for a chat and a feel of the water! Also keep in mind that Santorini does have cruise ships that dock for the day so there are some crowds around on those days, however by evening they are for the most part gone again.
