Summer Time! Magic Santorini

These last couples of years, I did some great trips during the summer, but I never got the chance or the time to share the pictures on the blog so I’ve decided to select the best ones and come up with a series called Summer Time! I want to start with our trip to Greece back in August 2016. It was an amazing experience, I love the culture and the lifestyle there. We started with Santorini. This place is just gorgeous, a picturesque island built in rocky hills where surreal shades of blue and white dominate the architecture and landscape. The mix of local shops and recent designers concept stores contribute to the high class bohemian charm of this little paradise. My best tips at the end of the post!

To sleep: Charisma Suites (one of the best , but you have plenty of other budget friendly options!)

To shop local products: you have many little boutiques and shops in Oia selling local products from soaps, skincare, charms, souvenirs, leather Greek sandals to olive oil and wine

For a refreshing and delicious ice cream: Lolita’s Gelato Oia 847 02

To get an henna tattoo, visit this charming hippie place, Irida Anca the make up artists, is as sweet as talended: Oia, Kikladhes

The sunset is absolutely amazing, you will see people gathering on the edge of hills balconies when the time comes to enjoy the view

There is a great fish restaurant at the bottom of the island, where you can also admire the boats and sunset view: Katina in Ammoudi Bay, Oia

You can go on a group or private cruise with a delicious lunch included (fresh fish, rice and other local delicacies), you will visit the island and make a stop to swim in a warm and clean water: You have plenty of options on the Internet or just ask your hotel concierge for recommendations
