It's a magical place full of a fantastic collection of books, very nice people with an amazing story to tell and a jawdropping view of the sea. I absolutely loved their postcard rack!

We so appreciate independent bookstores and this is one of the most unique ones we have seen.When we were in Paris, the Shakespeare & Company bookstore was special and this is very similar to that one. The Atlantis Books was written up in the New York Times. This is a very tiny place but jam packed with books with sections... More

This is without a doubt, one of the coolest stores I have ever come across anywhere in the world. The front desk girl at our hotel recommended it and we had no idea what to expect but man, was it ever awesome. Words can't describe it, but the best I could say is somewhere between the store from Notting Hill... More

I've loved Shakespeare and Company in Paris for over four decades. When Jeremy Mercer wrote his book, TIME WAS SOFT THERE, about Shakespeare and Company, I wrote him. He responded saying he was on his way to Santorini to visit ATLANTIS BOOKS. I immediately went and was not disappointed. The bookstore on this beautiful island is one of my best... More

After reading about Atlantis Books on the web and in guidebooks, I was determined to find it and it was everything I expected...and more. A bookshop needs more than a well-chosen, eclectic selection of books & beautiful stationery, it needs someone who truly loves reading. Atlantis Books has been crafted with a love of words and books - the artistic... More

Stumbled across this on our last night in Santorini. You can find it on the walk to the windmill and on the way to the viewpoint looking back on Oia and the windmill landmark. It takes you away from the usual tourist shops into a magical world of beauty. You have the great colours painted on the walls of the... More

On a stroll through one of the streets in Oia, I came across a string of words painted in a scrawled handwriting on a white wall: 'This is not done by jostling in the street'. A couple of steps tumbled down into the shop below that displayed the name amidst a series of decorative displays like drawings of books and... More

I know that this bookstore became so popular among the tourist. But this sweet little place is not an Acropolis. There are many people who really like to find good books there, so, dear photo shooters, please spare us the space to explore the books.

I visited this bookstore in September 2012, and again in August 2014. This is such a cute book store, and provides a very unique experience in Santorini. The owners are so kind and knowledgeable, they gave great recommendations. Looking forward to visiting again.
