Santorini is an island full of surprises and one way to discover them is to explore its stunning villages, each with its own unique personality and picturesque beauty. Distances are small between these delightful hamlets. They’re easy to visit, and each one, or a combination of a few, makes for a perfect day out. From north to south, this is Santo Collection Resorts & Villas’ guide to Santorini’s most lesser-known villages.

Pyrgos Kallistis

Ηilltop Pyrgos comprises the best-preserved medieval settlement on the island, and at the foot of Mount Profitis Ilias, the village combines its delightful tranquil ambience with panoramic views. This is a different side to Santorini – a community that exudes the Greek village of times gone by. The main square, with its pine trees and coffee shops, is good to visit late morning when locals gather for ouzo or Santorinian beer to compliment tasty mezzedes.

Set back from the caldera, Pyrgos doesn’t need the teeming terraces, bijou balconies and infinity pools, that make up much of what is today’s typical image of Santorini.  This is a place that has witnessed a different and gentler path of development, but delightful creature-comforts are still to be found here. Its steep medieval alleys are home to some great wine bars, cafes, restaurants and boutiques. Head to the Santorini of the Past museum for insights into traditional island life. The Church of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary dating back to 1660 is one of Santorini’s largest and most important places of worship.


A twenty-five minute walk less than two kilometres east of  Santo Collection, the village of Finikia sits amongst terraced vineyards on a peaceful hillside. Pastel-coloured properties and boutique hotels plus a handful of traditional tavernas line the cobbled alleys of this picturesque community. Head towards the clifftop to the Profitis Ilias Church for a great viewing spot.


A kilometre inland from Fira, the village of Karterados lies at the centre of Santorini, In the 19th century this was a glorious, prosperous settlement where sea captains built their stately homes and the architecture here is stunning. Cave houses dating from the 17th century, and a restored windmill in the main square add to the charm.  Surrounding streets are lined with lively tavernas, restaurants and boutiques. Looking east over a lush green valley with vineyards, the remote Exo Gialos Beach is close by, with black volcanic pebbles and deep blue, crystal-clear waters. With fascinating rock formations (a result of salt and wind erosion) Exo Gialos is one of Santorini’s most unusual landscapes.


Megalochori still honours its elegant seventeenth-century roots, dotted with pirate hideaways and historic high-walled mansions with hidden courtyards. Tavernas and boutique hotels offer the customary caldera views, but it’s the vineyards in the surrounding hills that make Megalochori a place to truly savour.   Wine-making is engrained in the area’s culture here and it’s where the island’s first commercial winemakers were established.  Since Roman times, Santorini has made wines from a handful of specific grape varieties – Aidini, Assyrtiko, and Athiri for whites, and Mandilaria and Mavrotragano for reds. Vineyards flourish in Santorini’s black ash-rich volcanic soil and one-sixth (more than 1500 hectares) of the island is given over to wine production.

The main grape variety grown on the island is Assyrtiko covering 65 per cent of Santorini’s vineyards, and differing altitudes and soils result in varied styles. Most Santorini wines are known for their dry, crisp mineral-laden qualities. In the Megalochori area, sometimes referred to as “the Tuscany of the Aegean”, a vast wine culture can be explored.

From centuries-old subterranean wine cellars to ultramodern wineries hewn from the volcanic rock, Megalochori is a feast for the senses.  Explore local producers like the family-run Gavalas Winery, the Hatzidakis Winery, and ArtSpace Winery – and a visit to the pioneering and architecturally stunning Venetsanos Winery overlooking the Caldera is a must.


Eleven kilometres south-west of Fira, Akrotiri is a traditional village set in the island’s southernmost peninsular.  Largely untouched by mass tourism, Akrotiri is one of the least developed parts of the island, is steeped in history, and makes for fascinating explorations.

Built below the now ruined 13th-century Fortress of Akrotiri, the modern-day village lies to the north and close by Ancient Akrotiri – the most important archaeological site on the island, which dates back to to the Bronze Age. Archaeologists believe the original settlement was constructed around 4,500 BC  but destroyed by successive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  On Santorini’s westernmost tip, a lighthouse (one of Greece’s oldest) dating from 1892, makes a fine location for watching that sunset with a difference.


Quiet Vlichada village is famous for its black-pebble beach, backed by wind-sculpted, volcanic cliffs. Art exhibitions are held at the Santorini Arts Factory, and the village’s  Tomato Industrial Museum featuring items used in the tomato-canning industry offers fascinating insights into this historic Santorini crop. Water’s edge seafood tavernas make this a great spot for a laid-back fishy lunch.


Memories of summer at Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas.

As cooler breezes kiss the island of Santorini, at Santo Pure we raise a glass to our valued guests and our precious shared memories of recent months.

What did we love the most?

What shone as warmly as the world-famous Santorini sunset was our people. We believe in excelling in customer service; it’s at the heart of our philosophy, but in the summer of 2020 our care, sensitivity and attention to detail reached new heights, with the extra responsibilities brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Guests commented on the extraordinary efforts made by our staff, at reception, in housekeeping, and in our restaurants and bars, to make guests feel safe at all times. Our people, specially trained to deliver new approaches to guest security, where the human face of our efforts to adapt the hotel to the most stringent safety standards introduced for covid compliance.

What excited us?

Just five minutes walk from the heart of Oia village, Santo Pure’s stunning location offering an intimate and breathtaking view of the Santorini sunset, as always, proved a highlight for our guests. Watching the earth’s life-force slowly descend below the Aegean horizon in a flood of red and orange is the iconic Santorini experience, and we are fortunate at Santo Pure to be able to share this experience, this life-affirming wonder with those who stay with us. At Santo Pure we believe hospitality is about celebrating life and all its wonders.

What did we taste?

The tastes and scents of Santo Pure will long be remembered by our summer visitors. At our premier restaurant, Alios Ilios, while redesigned for covid compliance, executive chef Vassilis Katsikas invited diners on a delicious journey – an exciting exploration of Greek cuisine, its health-enhancing properties, and particularly the traditional dishes of the Aegean islands. Guests savoured dishes such as sea bream with artichoke – a la Polita; trahanas – a delicate grain soup with shrimps, the classic Aegean favourite octopus with fava, and our seven stage degustation menu – an exquisite journey through our top signature dishes.

Where did we relax?

To complement our gastronomy at a time when well-being and health were uppermost in our thoughts, our Anassa Spa provided a haven for tranquil relaxation, with guests enjoying treatments and massages, designed to cater to their every need.

Once again “meraki”, that almost untranslatable Greek word that describes an act of creativity, passion and love – made from the soul – defined all our offerings in the summer of 2020.

To our guests – past and future – we wish you good health and happiness.

We wait for you.

Until then #KeepDreaming

The late summer of 2020 offers a unique chance to visit Santorini and experience its stunning delights in peacefulness.

Tranquil, serene, and above all safe,; Santorini holds out a special welcome for those wishing to embark on the Aegean journey this year.

The village of Oia, one of the most photographed destinations on earth for its beauty, is on your doorstep at Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas. Fira, the island’s usually bustling capital (a lot calmer this summer), trickles into the villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli (the highest point of the caldera edge) and the delightful path that runs through these villages is lined with cafe and restaurant terraces – found in peacefulness this year.

Santorini delights
Beyond serene relaxation by our sun-kissed swimming pools, and sampling Santorini’s fine gastronomy, walking the caldera edge and taking in the breathtaking views is perhaps the most popular pastime for any visitor. A gentle stroll around Fira is spectacular, particularly heading north to Firostefani and Imerovigli along the caldera-edge pathway.

Wine tastings
Santorini is a wine lover’s paradise and most renowned for its crisp dry whites and the amber- coloured dessert wine Vinsanto. Both are made from and indigenous grape variety, Assyrtiko. Many vineyards, some dating back to the 19th century, host tastings and the award-winning Domaine Sigalas in Baxes is the closest to Santo Pure Oia Suites & Villas.

Beyond the caldera
There is always more to find in Santorini. The laid-back east coast is less visited than the west, with black sand beaches, sun-beds, water sports, and taverna-lined promenades. Red beach, located near Akrotiri village and just a few steps away from the famous prehistoric site, is one of the most scenic beaches you can find on the Island. Beyond the beach there’s more. The island’s interior is dotted with pretty vineyards and colourful traditional villages like Pyrgos that show a glimpse of an older, simpler Santorini life.

The great outdoors
Few Mediterranean destinations offer such a diversity of activities in such a stunning natural environment as Santorini. On land, hiking and horse riding offer the chance to explore parts of Santorini ‘off the beaten track’, and in the azure and pristine waters of the caldera and beyond, enthusiasts of diving, windsurfing and sailing will be richly rewarded.

Santorini has a huge variety of tours available including winery visits, archaeology tours, sunset- watching and more. One of the most popular options is a cruise of the caldera’s volcanic islands Nea Kameni and Palia Kameni. An exhilarating dip from a boat on a caldera cruise is an unforgettable experience.

Santorini and Santo Collection are ready to welcome you – a sunlit haven of peace and privacy.

The Greek souvlaki we all love in an easy-to-make recipe at home

Just because you can’t host your loved ones for intimate gatherings right now doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to treat yourself. We know that there is no other favorite than the typical Greek souvlaki. So, till you will be able to taste this mouthwatering snack at our Poolside Bar follow our Executive Chef, Vasilis Katsikas, to a healthier twist of the classic recipe and enjoy it at home.

Pita flatbread with chicken gyros, avocado tzatziki sauce, cherry tomatoes, onion chutney and french fries.


For the Chicken Gyros:
Chicken drumsticks (150gr), deboned and skinless, marinated in mustard, lemon, thyme, rosemary and salt. Grill on the grill plate and cut into bite sized pieces.

For the Avocado Tzatziki Sauce:
Blend 2 avocados, 30ml lime, 25gr glucose and ice. Add finely chopped cucumber, garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, chives, and olive oil.

For the Grilled Cherry Tomatoes:
Score the tomatoes and plunge them into boiling water for a few seconds, then plunge them straight into ice cold water. Alternatively, burn them with a blowtorch until the skin blisters and pops. Peel the rest of the skin away by hand, marinate the cherry tomatoes in olive oil, oregano, salt, and garlic. Grill or fry for a couple of minutes until slightly charred on both sides.

For the Onion Chutney:
Finely chop the onions and sauté them in olive oil and cow butter until golden, soft and sticky. Add salt, thyme, sugar, balsamic vinegar, and tabasco sauce. Simmer until the liquid is reduced and the mixture has a jam-like dark and thick texture. Add some parsley.

For the French Fries:
Use a potato the size of your fist without peeling it. Wash it well and cut it into four pieces lengthwise. Deep-fry them in 100 oC and leave them until soften. Briefly leave to drain on absorbent paper (carefully so as not to break). Raise the oil temperature to 220 oC and cook again until golden brown and crispy.

Mini pita flatbread
Brush well the pita flatbreads with olive oil and grill them on the grill plate.


Spread some of the avocado tzatziki sauce onto the warm pita bread, add the onion chutney, the cherry tomatoes, the chicken, and the French fries. Fold the pita by pressing more tightly at the bottom to give a slight cone shape and wrap in parchment paper.
