Santorini

We're thinking of Santorini next year but where is best and can you get self catering ? We don't want too much in way of night life but like a few bars and restaurants .

"Best" will depend on the sort of experience you prefer, beach resort or clifftop with caldera view.

Beaches: Kamari, Monolithos, Perissa

Clifftop: Akrotiri, Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, Oia

Once you've identified which village would work best for you use the filter system at www.booking.com to find a self-catering apartment within your budget. If your plan is to be there during the peak season months when the weather is so very hot I do recommend that you find something with a swimming pool.

You should be able to find self-catering options in most any part of Santorini. However, note that "kitchenette" does not necessarily mean there's a hot plate and cooking utensils. Be sure to ask and get confirmation for these things.

Also, you should be able to find mini markets anywhere on the island but we just got back and it looks like most of the grocery markets are in or a short walk/cab ride from Firostefani and Fira. We stayed in Imerovigli and the closest grocery shop with ok looking veggies was about 10 minute walk.

As for "best", I agree with brotherleelove, depends on the experience you're looking for. We found Santorini Dave's site to be quite helpful during our planning process and throughout our trip too: https:/…best-places-santorini...and no, I am not affiliated with the Santorini Dave site.

As brotherlee says, "best" is subjective....
