We noticed the bookstore from the wall paintings outside, and the inside did not disappoint. We chose this store over the sunset that night because of the crowds. We looked around for a long time and enjoyed browsing titles and the great atmosphere. It is small, but felt just like a bookstore should!

Even for non-book lovers this little bookshop is a must visit! It is located very conveniently in the centre of Oia and will be passed on the way to the view for the sunset. It is a quirky shop with beautiful unique decorations, open books flying on the ceiling, funny quotes and phrases dotted all around the shop, a little... More

A nice cozy book shop, very unique. Hidden. Offered books in several language. Bought 4 about Greek myth and legend. The book shop alone is a must see, you’ll know what I mean when you’re in it.

Although a small bookstore, I was pulled into the shop by its design. I was with a friend of mine who is a bookworm like me. We both browsed along the place and I was impressed with the way the place was done up- with some inspirational saying on the wall, to their story written in a timeline on the... More

I saw in an article where this was a place "not to miss" in Oia and had been voted one of the top bookstores in the world several years ago. We thought it was wonderful! It can be a bit cramped at times, but it's filled with tons of book treasures! The owners are delightful and were very helpful. We... More

It was a great experience to visit such a cozy and charming bookstore in the historic centre of Oia, Santorini! The whole atmosphere of this place is totally amazing, like in a fairy-tale. Be prepared to get lost in the huge variety of incredibly interesting books around you. At first you could feel yourself unnoticed, but try to speak wtih... More

This is probably the cutest place I've ever visited in my life so far. The store below ground, small, and very cozy. The owners live in the shop so you might notice two beds in there. The upstairs, accessible both from within and without the shop, is half a storey above ground level and is a patio/roof with seating for... More

This is possibly the best little bookstore in the world. Although small, it had a lot of selection, and even more character! The girl working in the shop was very friendly, and had no problem making recommendations. Definitely worth a stop on your trip!

This place is amazing, you can get lost in time, from the moment you walk through the door and through the little rooms you find not just books but little notes and messages written on walls and other surfaces, oh and some great signage. There is plenty of books of various interests for the avid reader and some hidden gems... More

Not that easy to find, but definitely worth the search, one of the most charming bookstores I've ever walked into. It's located into a cave and totally covered with books and novels. Very nice owners. Definitely a must stop!
