Choose to go to the center of Oia village from the stone-built little alley that leads you directly to the top. It is located right next to the Santo Maris Oia property and you will be able to reach it in less than 4 minutes.
Oia is small yet bursting with life, tranquil yet vibrant. The village enjoys an international reputation as one of the Greek Islands’ most stunning locations and one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Santo Maris Oia offers a unique view of the sunset without having to share it with crowds and tourists. Enjoy the splendorous wonder as the sun sinks into the sea, from bright gold, to orange, to magenta.
The village itself is also full of wonders beyond the daily offerings of the sunsets.
Take the renowned art galleries, for example. The gorgeous natural surroundings of Santorini and the Aegean, have inspired artists for centuries and their artistic talent is on display in the Treasures Art Gallery in the village.
Perfectly complimenting the museum and other fabulous shops in the village is the celebrated Atlantis bookstore, founded in 2004 by a group of friends from Cyprus, England, and the United States.
The bookstore’s view is certainly one of a kind with the vast crystalline Aegean stretching to the horizon beyond the benches and chairs outside. Customers can browse the shop and enjoy their new purchases in fairytale, novel-like, surroundings.
