Beautiful book shop tucked away in Oia. The owners have carefully crafted this place and are very helpful if you are looking for something in particular. There are recommendations and sections in different languages too. I loved the little reviews about books, helping me to find the perfect Greek cookbook to take home. There are even a section of first... More

A beautiful, fun, quirky and personal bookshop in the centre of Oia. Loved looking around and picking a book out. The staff were really nice and I loved the touch explaining the bookshop's history. The terrace was closed when I went, but I can imagine that it must be a great place to catch the sun and the view.

One of the coolest shops I've ever been to. I stayed in Santorini for 4 days and I made sure to stop in here everyday. Not only is it a perfect place to get books to read while you're relaxing in Oia, but they also have plenty of local literature and information on the area. One of the coolest features... More

For any book lover, this place is an absolute goldmine! It's true that Oia is absolutely stunning but its streets are lined with row after row of identical souvenir and jewellery shops. On passing Atlantis books we couldn't help but go in. We easily could have spent hours there. For such a small place, they have a great range of... More

What an amazing place. If you are a book lover on any level, you MUST visit this cute, tiny, unique book store. Books all stacked all over - like being lost in a fairyland of treasures. There is even a tiny little staircase in the back in which you can see the sunset. The owners are really cool - obviously... More

When you enter this place is like jumping into a fairy tale. I loved the shop setup, I loved the reviews written here and there, I loved the bookseller attitude. I bought a book I was not planning to buy just listening to his explanation of it to another customer, he was so passionate about the story he told that... More

From the outside, the sign adopt a cat for 5 euro got my attention. After beeing at Koufounisi, where the cats are overtaking the human population, this sign was a bit odd, I mean donkeys, a lot, dogs, yep also more then regular, but cats? So down the stairs and........overwhelming, amazing. What a great athmosphere, the history drawn on the... More

This place would be a legendary bookstore in any city--the fact that it's located in little Oia just makes you feel like you're getting away with something. From rare first editions to great literature (if you're looking for Fifty Shades kind of stuff, you're out of luck, and...why not challenge yourself?) Atlantis has everything you could want. We picked up... More

For such a small space, there were surprises around every corner. We spent much longer there than expected, taking time to hang out in the "reading room". Employees were friendly and helpful.
