A secret place, hidden from tourist crowds, less than 1Km from the famous Oia and caldera’s cliff Finikia village, is inhabited mostly by locals, and lives still in older times before the tourist rush.
Ideal for a romantic holiday in Santorini, Finikia lies on the other side of volcano, facing to the north coast of the island. So there is no view here on the volcanic caldera, but the sea and the islands across of Folegandros, Sikinos, and Ios.
Here, you see white houses and horizontal lines, a calm contrast to the scary landscape of the caldera. Vineyards and scattered chapels, each dedicated to a protector saint of villagers and sailors. The top little chapel of Saint Kyriaki, offers a unique and lonely sunset view from Santorini to the rest of Cycladic Islands.
Below the houses of this small village, start the road to the vineyards and finally, at 3 kilometers, are famous beaches with fine sand.
Quiet yet cosmopolitan, Oia is chosen by those who seek serenity, calmness and luxury in their holidays. This is why here are some of the best places to stay on Santorini Island, as well as luxurious restaurants, exquisite galleries and a wide range of shops.
Oia remains an exceptionally artistic, hardly touched site; it is the part of the island least affected by tourism. A model of architecture, finesse and charm, Oia has its own fanatic followers: those who know how to appreciate what is different and unique.
