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

A charming little bookshop along the main shopping stretch of Oia which offers books in a variety of languages (including some English first-edition prints!). Lots of warmth and character in the shop which is sadly missing these days in this generation of e-books and e-readers, plus a nice timeline of the bookshop's history painted on the ceiling. Definitely worth going... More

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
