Make a holiday villa in Exo Gonia your home away from home

Santorini is the home of some of the world’s most unique geological formations, crafted thousands of years ago in a blast of fury by Mother Nature. Tourists travel from all over the world to marvel at the vivid colours produced when the sun goes down beyond the caldera and the peculiarly designed houses sitting atop it. This alone is what makes hundreds, if not thousands, of holidaymakers troop into holiday homes in Exo Gonia and other towns on this Aegean Sea island every year. HomeAway provides Santorini tourists with wonderfully styled, spacious villas that command striking views over the sea and the cliffs that border it. Occupants of these Exo Gonia holiday villas will also enjoy a host of facilities such as private pools, barbecues for outdoor meals and Internet access.

Things to do

-Beaches: The coastline of Santorini is replete with wonderful beaches from which holidaymakers can enjoy the summer sun and drink their fill of the cool sea breeze as well as swim in the sea’s clear waters. The black-sanded Kamari Beach is a tourist favourite as it provides prime sunbathing space and is relatively secluded. It is lined with bars where frigid beverages can be purchased to combat the 30 plus temperatures. The Red Beach offers sublime views of the mighty red cliffs of Santorini.

-Amoudi Bay: Better views of the cliffs can be enjoyed from Amoudi Bay, located in the town of Oia. There are few better ways to spend an evening than to nibble on fresh seafood in one of the taverns here while watching the sun go down. Also in this area is a swimming area with a rock from which people can dive. Amoudi is reachable by car but those who don’t mind a bit of a hike can walk to the bay.

-Theatre: One of the activities those heading to Exo Gonia holiday homes can look forward to is entertainment in the open-air cinema of Kamari. This facility is found just at the entrance to Kamari town and is simply one of the most romantic places to be. Couples will never forget the evening they sat under the starry Greek skies and sat in a traditional style cinema. They can get drinks from the bar and wander to the nearby beach as well.

-Ancient ruins: A visit to Santorini is incomplete without a visit to the Akrotiri site which was once upon a time a Minoan city. It has been preserved over thousands of years by the volcanic ash that covered it after an eruption. With the ruins so well preserved, it is easy to imagine how the houses looked. The wall paintings which were found among these ruins were transferred to the Museum of Prehistoric Thira.

-Museums: At the Museum of Prehistoric Thira visitors will find a collection of artefacts that trace Santorini’s history from the late Neolithic to the late Cycladic I period. A 45-minute tour will suffice to take visitors through the small museum. With its convenient location in Fira town, tourists coming from Exo Gonia holiday rentals will be able to reach it easily.

Weather in Exo Gonia

The immaculate Mediterranean weather that yields long sunny spells is one of Santorini’s key draws. Holidaymakers who book holiday villas in Exo Gonia in the typical holiday months of June, July and August will be able to bask in 28°C sunshine. They can expect nothing short of hot and dry weather during their stay. Those who wish to avoid holiday crowds and arrive in May will still find temperatures above 20°C. From November to February a mild winter ensues in which temperatures average about 15°C.

Travel to Exo Gonia

Anyone travelling to Santorini during the peak holiday season from most major European cities will be able to find direct flights to the Santorini Airport. This is because most commercial airlines operate seasonal flights and charters to Santorini at this time. When there visitors will be three or so miles from their Exo Gonia holiday homes which they can reach with a 15 minute taxi ride. They can take the shuttle to Fira town and connect to Exo Gonia from there if they don’t want to spend the €20 airport taxis charge.

There is another seating area out of the front door, which we used for a morning cup of tea in the shade and in the late afternoon for some sunshine. The apartments had everything you need for cooking, which we didn't do! a washing machine and a good fridge freezer. There is a television in the lounge and the bedroom but we don't tend to watch it on holiday. It would have been good to have some more comfortable seating on the balcony as the recliner chairs although comfy meant you could only see the wall when you were in them. Savina was great from the welcome to when we left, she is so lovely. Monolothis is very quiet at night, 3 restaurants, we tried them all, the village taverna serves very simple food which is good but they do not seem to be very welcoming to tourists, we went there twice, captains is good went there 3 times, and went twice to the Italian, it was ok for a pizza, the café is good for a cheap snack and a frappe or beer. The beaches are great something for everyone, a quite beach to the right of the apartment with very shallow water ideal for small children. The main beach is big with gently shelving sand and the far beach is good for big waves and windsurfing. We found it very windy in Monolithos the sand does get blown about and some nights were chilly, bring some cardigans and long trousers for the evenings. The bus service is good to Fira where you can then catch a bus to other parts of the island, the last bus back is 9pm. We hired a quad bike for more freedom, there are bike and car hire places in Kamira, the next place along or Fira if going there by bus, some firms will deliver to the apartment

Lovely narrow streets with quintessential Santorini buildings. Great restaurants with amazing views & not as busy as other towns such as Fira or Oia. Great to use as a base.
