    A room with a view in Oia

    If you believed the postcards, Oia would probably be just about as rustic and Greek as it gets. But don't be fooled by visions of deserted lanes and whitewashed cottages, this little speck of Santorini is not what it was centuries ago. These days, it turns its hand to chic apartments and uber-cool Oia holiday rentals with a view. Infinity pools jut out from the edge of the town and gyros sizzle in classy tavernas. It's almost always bustling, but you'll see why as soon as you catch the sunset – the best in the world, some say.

    Volcanic explorations in Oia

    Oia holiday rentals with a pool and a view really are the stuff of dreams. Morning means waking to views of Santorini's famous collapsed caldera, where rugged islets steam with ash between the sapphire-blue waters of the Aegean Sea. Venturing out to explore the domain in front of you can be done on foot – there are excellent hiking paths that ring the island's sheer-cut cliffs; or by boat – day trips will take you around the coves and headlands, often with expert geology guides on hand to explain the metamorphic history of the place.

    A taste of history in Oia

    Gasping at sunsets never gets old from the high perch of Oia. Unfortunately, sunsets only swing around once a day. To fill the hours in between you could head out to nearby Pyrgos to scramble a mountain and encounter the handsome Monastery of Profiti Ilia. The ruins of age-old Ancient Thera hide on the far side of the peak, a patchwork of homes and temples that are 3 millennia old. A museum to go with it – the Museum of Prehistoric Thera – can be found in the modern town of Fira. It's an absolute must.

    Greek summers or Greek winters in Oia

    Oia is popular year-round. Famous shots of its unforgettable sunsets and whitewashed cubist cottages continue to magnetise visitors from all over. Most come in the summer months, which – like in the rest of Greece – start in June and finish in August. The crowds peak with the temperatures then, so it's not a great time if you like to be alone. A better choice would be a winter break between December and March. Oia holiday rentals can be a steal then, plus you get a local vibe in the tavernas and the sunsets are equally as breathtaking.

    Oia – the sunset king

    Prepare yourself for a dazzling display of red-white-yellow light that casts a final burst of brilliance across the rocky islets and cliffs of an ancient Greek volcano. Those are just what the sunsets in Santorini are like. Every night. See why Oia holiday rentals with a view are in such high demand? You really need no other way to take in the natural beauty of the island. Of course, you could hit the black-stone pebble beaches and boat out to see the rugged coastline, if you like.
