Interesting and pleasant staff. Many books and other things available here as well as a sign reading "Rent a Cat."

If you love books you MUST visit here. The selection of your typical Indigo-style reads wasn't great, but the place has more character than you can imagine. From old quotes, pieces of the bookstores history, to rare finds (like a first edition of The Little Prince) - it's totally swoon-worthy. It's definitely worth a stop.

This beautiful little shop is easy to miss, tucked away as it is beneath the street, down a few stairs. OH BUT DO NOT MISS IT! Do not miss the first editions behind the shopkeeper. DO buy some of the local lavender so when you sleep you will dream of Atlantis. DO take time to real the wit and wisdom... More

My husband and I were visiting Santorini for our honeymoon and decided to walk around Oia for a day. We were immediately drawn to this bookstore when we passed through. It is such an interesting place to see that I definatly recommend stopping by (and, if you're like me, you won't be able to resist getting a few odd books).... More

Atlantis bookstore is almost surreal. Once you enter the store its filled floor to ceiling with books and given the small size of the stir gives it a really unique feel to the place. Its definitely worth a look there if you have the chance.

I LOVED this bookshop, absolutely adorable and the staff was so friendly. They have a great collection of vintage books, unique gift books, and some modern book picks as well.

Not quite sure what it is about the place, but it's super-duper charming. Great tomes of all sorts to dip your nose into. Great music. Good vibes. And a great rooftop to take in the absurd view. For anyone who likes the more alternative, off-the-beaten-path kind of points on interest, this is one - just happens to be squarely on... More

This little book store is just a set of narrow steep stairs down to a underground shop that is incredible!! A heap of collectable first editions, brilliant books you would not find anywhere and the guys behind the counter know every single book. If you need a book for the trip home this is the place. Arch out for the... More
