Discover Greece

Located 200 kilometers southeast of the mainland, the island covers 96-square-kilometers and attracts international tourists seeking its volcanic black-sandy beaches, sugar-cube Cycladic buildings, twisting stone alleyways with gregarious nightlife, blue-domed churches, and azure sea. Santorini’s dramatic beauty was formed by a massive volcanic eruption that took place over three and a half thousand years ago around 1645-1600 BC. Rumors abound that this eruption was the demise of the legendary lost city of Atlantis. Lost city or not, Santorini is steeped in rich history, and Vedema Resort has the advantage of being located near the airport and the port of Athinios—convenient to all area attractions.

  • The ancient Minoan city Akrotiri: Dominated by a medieval fortress, this is one of the most inspiring sites in Greece.
  • The Archaeological Museum: This impressive museum contains Hellenistic artifacts, Byzantine art, and remains of prehistoric times.
  • Thira: Santorini’s most ancient city houses Dorian, Byzantine, and Roman remains.
  • The Museum of Prehistoric Thira: This collection chronicles the island's history from the Late Neolithic to the Late Cycladic period.
  • 18th Century monastery Profitis Illias: Located on the highest point in Santorini, the monastery contains both an enchanting church and folk museum.
  • The Red Beach and the black sands of Perivolos: These beaches are renowned as some of the most breathtaking in the world.
  • Thirasia: This nearby island with hot springs and impressive volcanic structures makes an unforgettable day trip.
  • Closer to the resort, the beaches of Kamari and Perissa host diving centers and offer a bevy of water sports. These activities, horseback riding, and more can be arranged through The Luxury Collection Concierge. The island’s best shopping options are Fira's renowned designer stores located only a few miles from the resort.
  • The currency is the Euro and the electrical system is European Standard 220 volt. Santorini's official language is Greek, however; English is prevalent, and French, German, and Spanish are spoken in large villages.

Local Area & Activity Highlights

Ancient Thira

A place full of history. Do not miss the chance to visit The Ancient City of Thira, open daily from 8:00-15:00 except Mondays. The ruins of the City transfer you thousands of years back in time, before the big eruption of the Volcano that destroyed half of the island.

Hiking

From cliff-top walks to volcanic vistas, the island of Santorini boasts some of the Mediterranean’s best hikes. Visitors can explore untouched landscapes in places where locals still embrace their traditions.

Water sports vary from windsurfing , water-ski and many more.

Horseback Riding

Start the day riding to the top! After your morning dash, visit Panagia Episkopi, the most important Byzantine monument on the island. A swim at Kamari and as soon as the sun begins to go down, a walk round Messa Gonia. As you stroll through the ruins of houses deserted by the villages after the earthquake of 1956 you can still see some traces of their daily lives here.
