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.

The hostess was very helpful in informing us of the many options of activities that were available to us. Arrangements for transport from/to the airport and the associated baggage handling from the transport to the Cave House were very helpful.

The back faces out onto the Agean Sea, so wonderful to wake up each morning to that view. Pool was great in the heat. Perfect location, away from the busiest area of Oia, but we walked in to town each day...took only 10 minutes. Great restaurant right across the street if you don't want to walk. Beaches on opposite side (east side) we walked to it, but not everyone would do that walk, may need a car to get around. We took the bus to Fira and then hiked back to Villa Anemos (3hrs)...was spectacular. Villa Anemos was just right for us, would highly recommend to any family with older kids or couples travelling together!
