This was our second visit to the wonderful island of Santorini.
The first time we stayed in Perissa, in some side by side self-catering rooms which were adequate, but appeared to have paper thin walls, allowing us to hear the drunk guy and his friends each and every night!
This time we opted for Krokos Villas in Imerovigli.
We were met off the coach by Vladimir, who took our cases and lugged them up and down countless numbers of steps to reach our cliff-top apartment. This was a relief as the Grecian heat hit us when the door of the plane was opened at the airport.
The apartment is built into the side of the cliff with a large balcony overlooking the Caldera.
This is where we ate our breakfast each morning delivered at the appointed time by Vladimir.
The view from the balcony was sensational looking out to Nea Kameni (Volcano), and the daily arrival of cruise ships down below. We were look enough to occasionally spot a pair of eagles (or were they vultures) as we ate our Greek Yoghurt & Honey etc.
Santorini has to be my favourite place in Greece because of its rugged beauty, and incredible sunsets, which most of the holiday population (it would seem) gathers to watch from the clifftops each evening. Prices on the island appear to be more expensive than most Greek resorts, no doubt due to the daily arrival of the cruise ships, and passengers itching to spend their money on jewellery of which there is much,along with designer clothes.
On arrival at our apartment the air-con was working, but not very well, and did little to get me down to a sensible temperature. This was reported to Sophia from our room phone, and by the following day the whole unit had been replaced by a brand new bit of kit, which kept us plenty cool at night. Bear in mind that air-con is essential if you are there during the summer months, otherwise you will fry!
