Dreaming of immersing yourself into the whites and blues? The Simone has something special for you! Santorini is the top fairytale destination 2016 and we are happy to share some secrets with you. Famous for engagements and honeymoons, Santorini is screaming with its breathtaking Caldera scenery, wild nature and the perfectly white, topped up with blue architecture. Today, this idyllic and dreamy island is the top luxury destination, attracting crowds from all over the world for the million dollar landscape.
This authentically small Greek-island is the remains of the massive volcanic eruption that occured 3,600 years ago. Tourists can still see the top of the crater from its surrounding mainland, and lovers can appreciate why this romantic destination is so popular for weddings and honeymoons. For a more extreme experience, ones can even go on the Volcano tour and have a swim in its hot springs. Would you dare? The main town Thira is where the snow white houses, luxurious hotels and the challenging steep cobbled streets are laid across the cliff tops. Even more intriguing is the iconic Oia village that is the heart of artists, fine dining and accommodations. And this is where the man chooses the most spectacular tear-over-beauty and happiness worth engagement spot! A tip for the fiance: to witness Oia at its dusk and watch how deep blues turn into our favourite pastel pinks. It is a very special moment for the locals, and so will be for your future wife! Don’t be surprised if you hear locals claps and screams as the sun goes down – it’s a priceless tradition to express gratitude to the sun. However, some screams might even go to the newly engaged couples. Their relaxed rhythm of island life is just going to steal your heart!
The Simone recommends visiting Santorini in spring or autumn to benefit from emptier narrow streets and a perfect under-crowded spot for sunsets. The island has this wonderful calmness which breathes you in takes away. Wine tasting is another extravagant experience and dining gurus must try the island’s famous Vin Santo that has been Santorini’s signature sweet wine for thousand years. Dinner overlooking caldera is the ultimate island goal. Open restaurants, sea views and the Greek cuisine is why we want to be here. Lunching over fresh and tasty seasonal greek salad and a glass of bubbles leading by the most blue of all blues scenery is an exceptional experience. The sweet herbal taste and smell of grilled meats, fresh fish or seafood brought straight from the Oia port down the hill, could take your breath and mind away. The inevitably warm island people will definitely create an your stay as consider-coming-back each year destination.
