Make a holiday villa in Pyrgos your home away from home

The island of Santorini forms part of the Cyclades archipelago; a group of islands in the Aegean Sea not far from the coast. It is blessed with immense natural beauty and unique geological features wrought by the Thera Eruption. Visitors can marvel at the imposing cliffs, especially when the sun sets, painting them a fierce red. The mostly white houses that sit atop the island like the snow cap of a mountain give the scene, seen from the sea, a surreal quality. For their well-earned repose after hours of traipsing about Santorini or basking in its sun, visitors can retreat to holiday homes in Pyrgos. The hilltop location of this locale promises holidaymakers an undisturbed stay and stupendous views. Pyrgos holiday villas are all about comfort and style which is evident in the elegant styling of these spacious houses and the features they boast.

Things to do

-Cinema: Movie lovers should remember to schedule a visit to the open air cinema in Kamari before they leave their holiday homes in Pyrgos. This is the perfect way to pass a summer evening; side by side with a loved one watching a movie under the open sky surrounded by palm trees. The movies are in English so no need to worry about not being able to follow the storyline. As they follow the movie visitors can partake of beer, wine and a host of other refreshments.

-Food and drink: Greek cuisine is one of the experiences those booking holiday rentals in Pyrgos look forward to most. Not only because visits to these restaurants will save them the trouble of cooking, the meals are simply to die for. A visit to the Metaxi Mas tavern will have holidaymakers singing the praise of Greek specialities for years to come. They serve amazing seafood at prices that are more than reasonable. To Psaraki closely rivals this restaurant, offering fresh seafood prepared in traditional Mediterranean style.

-Ancient ruins: The island of Santorini, apart from its unique geological aspect, visitors will be captivated by the historical sites found there. This is where the ruins of a Minoan village that dates back to the Bronze Age are found here. The site is called Akrotiri and here the visitors will find surprisingly well-preserved drainage pipes, walls and doorways, indicative of a thriving civilisation. Most of the artefacts discovered in this site were transferred to the Museum of Prehistoric Thera.

-Museums: At the Museum of Prehistoric Thera visitors will see pots, sculptures and beautiful coloured frescoes taken from Akrotiri. They are in good condition thanks to the volcanic ash that covered the site after an eruption thousands of years ago. For more of the same a visit to the Santozeum Museum should also be included in the itinerary. Here visitors will find more of the paintings retrieved from the Akrotiri site.

-Monuments: The holiday villas in Pyrgos are surrounded by a number of ancient buildings including numerous ancient churches. The Monastery of Profitis Ilias is one of the more captivating of the 33 or so religious edifices scattered in this village.

Travel to Pyrgos

Sat Nav will only work to get you to Pyrgos Village but we managed to find the house with no problems as the instructions (with pictures) were perfect! Be aware that there is a 5 minute walk up a steep incline from where you leave the car to the house. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous, it has been renovated to an excellent standard but still feels like a traditional Greek home. It is spacious and full of quirky features like the see through floor cover in part of the lounge which allows you to see into the original storage area for wine making! Fab! It is just a short walk into Pyrgos village square where there are several lovely tavernas and restaurants to chose from and there are plenty more scattered around the hills of Pyrgos all within walking distance of the house. My favourite part of this property is the private roof terrace where you can sunbathe or sit and enjoy the sun (or sit in the shaded area if you would prefer!) and enjoy the the most breathtaking views of the island!!! If you read the guide books they will all recommend a trip to Pyrgos for the best views of the island and you have all of this without leaving your house! On our day of arrival Ester met us to show us around the house and also sat with us to answer any questions we had about the island, things to do and excursions, she was super helpful and I felt that this service was such a lovely touch and like having a local friend you could contact with any questions you have. I can't recommend this place enough! We hope to return again in the future! Thanks

Pyrgos is such a pretty village with lots of restaurants, quirky shops and art galleries. The flat is in the heart of the village and very easy to get to. The owner was very quick to reply to any queries I had and once we were in pyrgos - Lola- the cleaner, were on hand to help and I could call her any time . We loved the decor of the flat and the jacuzzi was lovely as was the rooftop. Pyrgos hasn't got the mad amount of tourists that you see in oia, which we appreciated . Can really recommend this place
