Fell upon the bookstore when meandering through the lanes of Oia - and once I went in, I didn't want to leave! The quotes and art held my attention outdoors for some time before I entered into this quaint, unique bookstore. Books from every genre, many languages, and rare finds all await the Oia visitor. The store cat can also... More

From the pavement above this tiny treassure does not look like much, luckly we went down the stairs and found ourselves in the most amazing and charming little book shop I've ever been to. It was filled with great books, both old an new but most impressive were those many first edition books they could offer which made this tiny... More

A quint little bookshop in two cave like rooms…I think the owner lives in there…with a cat lying on the books. Unfortunately the terrace was not open but we went up and saw how spectacular it must be. More first editions than I have ever seen in one place and many signed. What a fun store!! We unfortunately missed meeting... More

A small place but full of books for you to discover! Worth more than one visit and plenty of time to explore each book. Also service is helpful and friendly.

They also have nice journals and short stories that you can comment on and mail to a friend. Stop in for a visit, even if you... More

This is probably my favorite place in Oia, but then again, I always try to find a bookstore wherever I travel. Atlantis Books has a wonderful selection and a fun vibe. It's a great place to get lost and find an original gift for a book-minded friend, or information about the island. I hope to return some day!

I stumbled upon this bookstore and was lead into another world. It is a must for book lovers. Wish I could have spend a few hours here but the weather outside was too good. This bookshop is on the main walkway of Oia. I think that is next to Island Photography. You have to go down a set of stairs... More

A hidden treasure in the crowded alleys of Oia. If you visit Santorini you must go to Atlantis. The atmosphere is amazing and the finds really rare and unique. This is not your typical book store, it's so much more. A lovely place to spent your evening.
