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.

Christine and Mark were very helpful while not intrusive, including transporting to and from the airport which was particularly good for us as we didn't intend to hire a car. They were also very helpful in recommending things to do once they knew what we were interested in. We spent most of our time around the villa, and mooching around Megalochori, enjoying the food in the various restaurants, and the beer and house wine. The €6 0.5L carafes at Marmita were surprisingly good. The wine tasting at the local winery (right in the centre of Megalachori) was also interesting with a good history lesson and plenty of differing wines to taste (and buy). Anyway, we had a great time, perfect & memorable honeymoon, and I can't recommend Alba Lily highly enough.

The house is immaculate, comfortable and has everything you could imagine to make your stay wonderful. The views are stunning and being just out of town the location is peaceful and tranquil. The pool with Jacuzzi jets and aqua bike is a lovely touch and much appreciated on a hot day. The restaurants and bars are only a short walk and Fira (Capital) only a 20-25 min walk. Roselyne was easy to make the booking with, and Martyne who looked after the property is a lovely lady who will help you with anything you require. We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.
