Make a holiday villa in Oia your home away from home

Those who have never heard of the Oia sunset need to make a point of discovering it for themselves. Seeing the sun paint the caldera and the houses built above it a lively orange is nothing less than a glimpse of heaven. This and many more delights are what tourists who make Oia holiday homes their destination of choice will enjoy. Makers of TV series and movies unable to resist Oia’s charm have used it time and again as the backdrop for their dramas. Thanks to its harbour on the isle of Thira it is a recognised cruise destination as well. HomeAway provides visitors to this exotic locale with luxurious holiday villas in Oia from which they can enjoy unhindered views of Santorini’s famous calderas. Some of these prestigious rentals come with such features as swimming pools and outdoor Jacuzzis. Internet connection and cable TV are also provided in many of these houses.

Things to do

-Sightseeing: Walking around the town’s narrow streets, visitors will be able to run their eyes up and down the homes of unique architecture that line Oia’s streets. These houses are built into volcanic rock and when you take a boat ride, the smattering of white houses glittering atop the cliff give the impression of the snow-covered peaks of mountains. But the awe-inspiring sunsets against the calderas are what convince most people to pack their bags and exchange their houses for Oia holiday rentals.

-Museum: The maritime history of the island of Thira, which forms part of Oia, is charted in the Naval Maritime Museum. Among the artefacts that tell the story are models of Thira ships from time past, rare photographs, maritime equipment used by ancient sailors and seamen’s chests. The museum itself is housed in a restored 19th century mansion.

-Food and drink: Oia is the best place to sample indigenous Greek cuisine as the locale is dotted with fine eateries that prepare food according to age-old Greek traditions. There are taverns that serve generous portions of hot souvlaki, tzadziki and other Greek specialities while some restaurants offer visitors this tasty fare combined with delicious views over the Aegean and a cosy, intimate ambiance. Those in the mood to experiment should make a detour into the Papagalos Restaurant where they can enjoy a series of innovative seafood dishes.

-Art: From time immemorial this Aegean jewel has attracted artists in droves from other parts of Greece and the entire continent. Not surprisingly there are many art galleries found in this town including the Mnemossyne Artists House on Pliarhorn Street. Here residents of Oia holiday homes will get to view and buy local art as well as items of clothing and jewellery. But the entire town is a masterpiece, with its uniquely designed buildings that were once homes of Venetian sea captains and the majestic cliff that faces the sea defiantly.

Weather in Oia

Like the rest of the Santorini island, the town of Oia experiences hot desert climate. This means that summers can get scorching, temperatures soaring beyond 30°C. Tourists headed for Oia holiday rentals in the months between June and August need to be prepared to deal with the heat and should not expect any relief in the form of summer rain as rainfall is scarce from April to September. During the winter, the cold is by no means harsh as temperatures average in the teens from November to March.

Travel to Oia

Santorini has a small airport that handles domestic flights and this is where most holidaymakers destined for holiday villas in Oia will touch down. They will fly there on a 30-minute flight from Athens, where most international visitors will initially arrive. On arrival at the Santorini Airport, visitors will have the option of taking a taxi or bus. The taxi will charge 20 to 25 Euros for the trip to Oia while the shuttle bus will cost about half that amount.

                                                                            I searched long and hard for the perfect place to say in Oia. I wanted the cave-style, hill-side, caldera view place. When I came across Johan's properties, I knew I had to stay there. Johan was quick to respond to many of my questions leading up to my stay, from restaurant recs to activities and car rentals. He helped arrange transfers for us from the port and to the airport. We stayed in Villa White and everything is exactly as pictured. It's clean, spacious, has a great shower, good-sized bathroom, living room area, small kitchen area with mini fridge and some kitchen tools, and a great AC. Johan even provided us with beach towels. We also enjoyed playing his Frank Sinatra CDs on his sound system, we felt so classy. The villas are the perfect distance down from the busy main street, which is a couple flights up. You won't hear the many people walking atop. We walked around all of Oia often and could easily return back to the villa to rest during the hottest time of the day. The place is not accessible by car but is only a 5 minute walk to the post office which is a main meeting area for pickups/drop-offs. We rented a car for a day and parked it in that area. There wasn't a day we didn't take advantage of the front porch, you just can't get enough of the Caldera view, morning or night. The mornings are peaceful, enjoy your breakfast looking out at the clear view. At night, you can star-gaze and see the lights from the towns across the caldera. It was the most memorable stay of our two week trip. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Oia!

We particularly enjoyed the breathtaking views to the sea and the newly designed jacuzzi that made us all deeply relax and forget the everyday world. The house itself was big and very clean and had all we could ask for. A very comfortable stay on all levels, including a flawless reservation and transfer service as well as a perfect and peaceful neighbourhood. Santorini is beautiful every season!
