We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud omnitel
the sun. Hs spectacularly set on the horizon. It's the only time I have seen people applauding GOD.
Breakfast was god event, hotel was lean nice ppool, helpful staff. I would recommend.

The caldera is quite fascinating. The volcano blew in 1500 BC, the biggest explosion in history. Legend has it that the darkness in Egypt during Moses time came from the ash cloud. My hey also say the resulting tsunami obliterated the Minoan culture. The newest theory is that the parting of the Red Sea was related to the blast and tsunami.
... to shop, to a groan from Richard. I'm in a shop haggling over the price of a scarf and excited I got £2 off to find Stuart in a jewellery shop buying me earrings. (Spoiling me again!) Back at the resort by 11.59am. We had a bite to eat and spent a couple of hours in the pool before heading off on our sunset cruise. This was an optional and all our crowd took it up. Our sail boat was only two years old yet built as a replica of an old wooden sail boat. We sailed to the ...
... in it we were that far back in the crowd. The sun hid behind the islands in the distance and twilight enlightened the sky for 20 more minutes. Nature is just so stunning. Buildings and man made things are magnificent but there’s nothing like God’s creation. The Swiss alps and the sunset of the Greek islands – now that’s absolutely priceless. We trotted back to our accommodation, which was reasonable and comfortable enough. ...
Another beautiful day in paradise. Didn't have breaky today, decided to go for a long walk. So down I went. Down the 224 steps to the bottom. I walked along the waters edge until I can to a little cove were I risked a swim. It was amazing. Before I walked back up the 224 steps early arvo it was time for some food. I think it would has been better to wait until I got to the top was ************* a full tummy. I spent the late arvo by the pool reading and finishing the bottle of ...
... beautiful place also, with a lot of shopping, gorgeous views, and incredible villas and hotels. We stopped and ate lunch at a restaurant overlooking the water on the side of a cliff, unfortunately they did not have Red Donkey or Yellow Donkey Beer, which is a beer found only in Santorini where the brewery is and they do not export off the island. We had hoped to find a place to buy some and take it home but we had no luck, I guess we have to wait till next time! After, lunch ...
