Whilst on Santorini you have to go to Ammoudi to eat. Set amongst the cliffs, there are no sunbathing luxuries but the sunset from here is phenomenal. If you wanted to go for a swim you could dive off the cliffs (be careful!) You should also definitely visit Akrotiri. This is a village that basically transports you back in time to the 17th century. Full of beautiful mansions and evidence of what had to have been an affluent community, it is definitely worth a visit!
As for the food you have to try the local food. It is very much like Greek food, but it is so delicious. They also produce some great cream cheese called Chloro, which is also really good with local tomatoes. Either way, you will not be disappointed. This is another reason it’s nice to be self-catered; you get to go shopping for delicious, fresh ingredients!
This is a really good opportunity to get away next May. It’s great for those of you who need to plan ahead and great for those of you who don’t but just fancied it for a change. It’s an amazing island, full of amazing people and it is sure to leave a lasting impression.
