I know folks don’t like bucket lists but I love them…I have a variety of different ones and I love that I have a bit of focus on where I want to travel too.  I travel to destinations that inspire me rather than where is popular.

Santorini has being on my bucket list for years…and years…and years!  Even my folks and sister made it to this Greek Island before me and they live in New Zealand.  We only had 2 nights in Santorini however it was enough time for us to get a feel of the island.

I know that Santorini is slowly becoming a marmite destination; folks either really love and rave about the island or they disliked it as it was overpriced, crowded and felt like Disneyland.

I will be honest and say that I am an inbetweener…it was okay, it was beautiful but I didn’t feel overwhelmed and my heart didn’t miss a beat…unlike with my three visits to the pyramids in Egypt (and I know how some folks don’t rate the pyramids either…we’re all different).

We arrived really early into Santorini by air, into the smallest airport you’ve ever seen (actually maybe Apia International Airport was smaller…hmm!)…we jumped into our transfer that whipped us across to Oia and met the lovely Elvis who carried my bags and showed us to our accommodation…poor Elvis, he possibly got more than he bargained for with my suitcase…

Santorini was different to how I was expecting it to be; firstly it reminded me slightly of Split with its slick main pedestrian street and pretty crumbling buildings…

We jumped into the hot tub…when I say jump, I mean slip in very elegantly or as elegantly as I could…I apologise now if anyone’s house in Oia got flooded as a lot of water left the hot tub…eek!

I had every intention of waking up early to watch the sunrise but forgot to charge my phone hence no alarm…doh!  So waking up late, we scoffed feta cheese in bed (totally up there with eating scones in bed which I highly recommend at least doing once in your life!), dressed and went out to explore another little section of Oia that we didn’t see the day before.

Did I absolutely love Santorini? – as I said before, I’m definitely an inbetweeer, I didn’t fall head over heels in love with the destination however I didn’t hate it either…it reminds me a lot of Dubrovnik…it doesn’t feel very authentic but it’s very pretty to look at.  I’ve ticked Oia off my bucket list…I’m glad I’ve been able to see a bit of Santorini and it made me realise I wanted to see another island at some point in the future (however I changed my tune when we visited Nafplio, I’m a Mainland Girl…so many fabulous places in Greece…I could start my own Big Fat Greek Bucket List…scurries off to do this…actually I have a Greece Pinterest board instead!)

Travel Tips for Santorini

  • Choose your season wisely, I’m not a fan of battling crowds while on holiday so visiting during November was perfect for us plus it is the most budget friendly time to visit.
  • Prebook your transfers if possible – we got an offer for 3 person for 25 euros
  • If you are trying to stick to a budget then look at self-catering options as Santorini can be very expensive even in off season for food and it’s just easier when you’re gluten free as well.  As I said above, the little supermarket sold gluten free pasta but we just stuck with cold meats, cheese and vegetables and we survived very nicely.
  • There are direct flights during the summer months from London with British Airways or you can get a Ryanair or Air Aegean flight from Athens to Santorini which takes approximately 45 minutes (we used all the above from Heathrow to Athens to Santorini and it all went extremely smoothly!).
  • I would suggest to have some cash on you as we found a few places didn’t take credit cards
  • If you plan to walk everywhere which you most likely will do then I highly recommend flat comfortable shoes…in the end my superga shoes saved my feet…if you have wide feet then I highly suggest giving them a try.
  • You can check out my other Greece posts here including my Santorini posts on Lovers House with Oia Collection, Catching the Sunrise in Oia and What to Expect when Visiting Santorini during Winter

I love a good old sleep in, regardless if I’m on holiday or not…one of the best things about travelling in winter is that sunrise is a lot later…hello 7am sunrise, so I was able to peel myself out of bed and catch the sunrise in Oia on our last day on Santorini.

Climbing a number of stairs to get the perfect vantage point at Oia Castle, I waited and waited…with a man holding a canon camera…I did wonder if he was going to kill me as we seemed to be the only two people awake on Santorini at the time and I’d left my mobile in the room!

While the sunrise wasn’t the most spectacular I’ve ever seen (the sunset was even less inspiring…sorry Santorini sunset lovers!)…I did love the absolute calmness of just watching the sun rise over the island…

Tips for Capturing the Sunrise in Oia, Santorini

  • Check what time sunrise is…simple but easy to forget…along with setting your alarm!
  • Find a great vantage point – Oia Castle is a great vantage point to catch the sunrise and sunset.
  • Look at travelling during the winter months to Santorini as it means you don’t have to get up at sparrows fart to watch the sunrise – this is what to expect if you visit Santorini during winter.
  • If you are visiting Santorini during peak season then I imagine sunrise would be less popular than sunset 
  • All the photos were taken on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (highly recommend purchasing from John Lewis as they will price match!)

When we (the royal we…aka me!) decided to visit Santorini in November, I went straight to google to see what to expect as most folks visit the Greek Islands during Spring and Summer.  I thought I would share my little insights into what to expect when visiting Santorini in Winter as I did get asked a few times about the weather, crowds etc on social media while I was on the Greek island.

Weather

Now you can’t predict the weather even in summer….we were lucky, it was around 20-22 degrees on the days we were on the island in November and there was hardly any wind (something I was warned about).  I did feel like I was missing the vibrant blue skies on some occasions but it did depend on the time of the day etc.  Overall it was a lovely time to visit as I can imagine it would be hideously hot during the summer months and then having to battle those famous Santorini crowds.

Crowds

Santorini is famous for it’s sunsets AND it’s crowds!  I was pleasantly surprised on how peaceful Oia was; it did get a tad busier with tourists at sunset, maybe 50+ which is nothing compared to the photos that I’ve seen of the crowds during the summer months.  There was a cruise ship in on one of the days however there was only a small tour group that ended up visiting Oia so it was all actually rather delightful.

Accommodation

Prices are a lot cheaper in the winter months…our cute little Lovers House was £100 a night however during the peak season the price jumps up to £400-500 per night and sometimes even more depending on what the pound is doing vs the euro!  A number of the famous hotels with infinity pools are closed as they do maintenance over the winter months however if you are happy to stay in the little apartments then you will be onto a winner.  Be aware that there isn’t a huge selection available however I think as more time goes by, winter will be a popular time to visit Santorini and there will be more options available.

Flights

We jumped onto a Ryanair flight ex Athens (weird right…well I thought so anyway!) and then jumped onto the Aegean flight back to Athens; the price of the flights with luggage cost £150pp (£100 more than our Business Class flight from London to Athens!) – it would have been cheaper obviously if we didn’t book a fortnight before our holiday or taken luggage…alas I like to have numerous pairs of clean undies with me.  I went with two airlines due to the flight times as I wanted to get the most out of the time that we were on Santorini.  We arrived into Santorini just as the sun was rising which was lovely and meant that we had two full days to explore Oia.

Restaurants

There wasn’t a great selection of restaurant options available in Oia during our visit – I think I counted around 5 from my strolls around Oia however there were many more options if you were basing yourself in Thira.   Some of these resturants only took cash but there are cash machines dotted around however it’s easier to be prepared before you get there.

Supermarket

There was a supermarket on the edge of Oia so we made a few visits which saved us a few pretty pennies…and it meant I could buy two pairs of shoes in Nafplio later on without feeling guilty.  We actually enjoyed having a little picnic on the terrace and we had many giggles over G’s omelette makings skills.  The supermarket even had gluten free pasta!  We just grabbed some vegetables, cheese (obviously!), eggs, honey, yoghurt and meats…it was enough and it meant we weren’t stuck with only a few restaurant choices which can be an issue if you’re gluten free.

Shopping

Okay a number of the shops, like the resturants are closed during the winter months.  Maybe with time this will change however it meant less spending…there were still a number of souvenir shops open including the one selling willy bottle openers that I’m having total buyers regret about not purchasing at least three of them for mum, Georgie and myself!

Rental Car

So we didn’t get a rental car as I heard it could be hard to park and the roads were busy…alas in November, there were plenty of spots to park and the roads were practically empty.  I did wonder about hiring a rental car to take us to Akrotiri but decided to sit down and read my book instead and turn into a prune thanks to that hot tub.

Tours

I imagine there are a number of tours on offer during the summer months however there was just one offered each day during the winter months from Oia when I popped into the tourist office; I didn’ t fancy visiting volacanoes, mainly as I come from New Zealand…I’ve seen plenty in  my lifetime!

Flowers

Santorini is famous for all those stunning Bougainvilleas…while there were still a few around, unfortunately a number had finished flowering.  There is still a little bit of colour left in November however I can imagine they wouldn’t be around much longer.  The colours of the buildings still brings Oia to life!

Building Work

During the winter months, a lot of building work and maintenance is carried out in Oia especially.  While the noise may wake you up slightly early, it’s actually quite fascinating to watch everyone at work…including the donkeys.  Weirdly I felt like I was having a very different experience to other tourists to the island due to this…it made my trip feel more authentic rather than Disneyland like.

Overall, I loved visiting Santorini in Winter as it didn’t feel crowded, the accommodation prices were so much more realistic and I had Oia to myself for most of the day so I can wander around to my hearts content.  If you don’t like crowds or are on a tight budget then I would highly recommend visiting during the winter months.

The accountant in me hates paying stupid money so when we had a change of plans and decided to head to Greece instead of China, I thought it was the perfect time to cross Santorini off my bucket list especially as it was off season.  I found a rather reasonable hotel at £100 per night in Oia which was perfect for sunset spotting and a hot tub!

Let me take you for a little snoop around Lovers House which is part of the Oia Collection; a variety of different apartments aka cave houses dotted around Oia offering magnificent views and comfortable lodgings.

We had organised a transfer with the manager direct from the airport which is the easiest and cheapest way of getting from Thira airport to Airport (25 euros for up to 3 person) and was met my Elvis whom politely carried my rather heavy suitcase through the streets of Oia.

I had opted for Lovers House as it had a hot tub; somewhere for G and I to relax…some down time after the year we’ve had.

…including a telly which we only turned on once as we spent most of the holiday reading; we both sat down and finally watched Eat, Pray, Love with Julia Roberts while eating a rather dodgy omelette that G had made.

…and I’m sure the folks staying in Oia would agree that G had no issue sleeping with his snoring action. We did find it slightly weird that the duvet inner wasn’t inside a cover…my mind went to a weird place with that one but there was a top sheet…Europe is really really weird when it comes to it’s bedding action.

…it’s not the biggest of spaces considering the size of the living area however toiletries were provided which I wasn’t really expecting.  Okay the black toilet did freak me out…I’ve never seen a black toilet before and they are just sooooo weird…we had a pink toilet in Arundel…that also freaked me out.

Anyone else out there get scared of coloured toilets??

There was a self catering kitchen which included a SMEG fridge, oven, hob, microwave and coffee machine which came in very handy…as we were visiting during off season in Santorini, a number of the restaurants were closed so we came to a decision to visit the local supermarket and make a few of our own meals and eat outside which also saved us a few pennies and meant I could have feta for breakfast.

The best thing about the Lovers House is the view AT SUNSET…it has the best location for watching that glorious sunset…

…okay I was expecting a lot more but you know beggars can’t be choosers and it was still pretty!

As I said earlier, the best part of this apartment is the terrace area which is rather private so you could happily sunbathe away while the streets are filled with folks waiting for the sunset and exploring Oia below…

Travel Tips for Oia Collection, Santorini

  • We stayed at Lovers House which was perfect for two persons and included the best spot to watch the sunset that Santorini is famous for
  • Wifi was a good speed and included in the price
  • Breakfast is an additional cost however we walked to the other end of Oia and found the local supermarket and bought ourselves some treats (easier when you’re gluten free!)
  • There are a number of stairs to enter this property however there are two gates if you are bringing small kids so they would be secure
  • If you are desperate for something to eat there is a restaurant just a few seconds away from the apartment that does crepes, waffles, salads and ice cream however they only take cash.
  • I booked directly through Oia Collection as they had a good offer on if you booked directly with them however I would suggest looking at prices on booking.com to compare prices
  • The property includes a fridge, oven, cooktop etc so you would be able to make your own meals easily plus we were left with some basics in the fridge for our stay
  • The property was cleaned daily during our stay
  • The manager can organise a pick up from the airport for 25 euros for up to three persons, it makes it easier to find the property if you organise this.
