Things to do from a holiday home in the Cyclades, Greece

Holidays to Cyclades Islands are all unique, but there are some characteristics which run through the vast majority of the 24 inhabited islands.

We (four adults) were extremely comfortable. The house is very well equipped and any problems were resolved immediately. We enjoyed the hot tub and the spectacular views from the roof terrace to the caldera and of more or less the whole of the island of Santorini. We also enjoyed being in the village of Pyrgos, which is the former capital of Santorini and much more traditional than many of the other villages. The people there were very friendly and helpful. We used the local bus from the village square to go into Thira and across to Perissa and hired a car from the village for 3 days to visit Oia, Akrotiri and many of the other villages. We also enjoyed a sunset trip around the caldera with Barbarossa. It was a very memorable holiday.... Joan
