Lovely bookstore in the heart of Oia - great variety of books in different languages + quirky, friendly atmosphere. Resident cat guards the books and a cute little dog was guarding the entrance steps when we passed in. NY Times had a feature on the bookstore and the attention wasn't undeserved at all. Helpful staff. Recommend a visit to all... More

My partner is an avid reader and I am a librarian. I love bookshops that give me inspirations. Although small and slightly dusty, I find the shop very charming. If you are looking for inspirations, pr a book to read, just ask the shop keeper.

Stumbled upon this quirky little store on the day I was in Oia for the sunset. Loved it so much we decided to make another trip there after our hike the next day. It has such an whimsical charm and I could instantly tell that I would spend an hour or two in this literary haven. Am convinced that the... More

When I entered in this library I was impressed by it. Then, when I decided to buy some books I had a really bad surprise. I noticed that, since a lot of prices where in pounds, they put a translation in euros which was wrong. So I decided to check other books and discover they were all overpriced respect to... More

Dear Antonella, I'm sorry you felt this way about your experience in our shop. It's unfortunate but true that since the vast majority of our new English books are ordered from publishers in the United Kingdom, we generally need to mark up the prices by a couple of euros above the standard retail price that you would find in, say,...

I just loved, loved, loved it. Could not stop reading the little quotes and notes they had all over the place. The entrance is like a secret entrance to the faraway tree land - hope they preserve and nurture this little gem. Kudos to the Owners !

This place is like no where else on the island! It is such a unique place that no one would expect to find! Me and my girlfriend could have spent all our holidays in here! It's like you step into another world and it's unbelievable. The people are very friendly and I would truly go back to Santorini for Atlantis... More

We were recommended to visit this little bookstore, but were not given any further information- were told just to go and find for our selves why it is so special. And, indeed, it was truly a gem of a bookstore in a place like Oia. The steps leading down into the basement, the timelines, the writings on the walls and... More

Atlantis book shop is amazing and a must see for all visitors to Oia. The book shop is very quirky, making the most of all the space inside. It's a lot of fun to go into and has books in a wide range of languages at a reasonable price. Definitely worth the visit!

Very unique little shop on the main street in Oia- an amazing place to browse, a huge variety of books in many languages and to suit all tastes and the owner really knows his stuff when it comes to books. But if you visit and take photos make sure you buy a book (or two) to support the business and... More
