Perhaps this year you should plan your vacation in Santorini Greece. This page provides you with a short guide to the island, including a Santorini map and travel information about beaches, sightseeing and attractions on Santorini Island Greece.

Santorini is a beach lover's ideal holiday spot. Many of the beaches on Santorini Island are known for their colorful sands and dramatic scenic views, such as the black beaches of Kamari, Perissa, Perivolos and Monolithos, as well as the magnificent Red Beach and White Beach near Akrotiri, which are embraced by reddish and whitish cliffs, respectively.

Other beaches worth visiting are Ammoudi, Armeni and Baxedes near Oia and Vourvoulos in northeastern Santorini, which are easy to find on your Santorini map.

The Maison Des Lys is located close to one of the most precious sites of Ancient Greece: the Prehistoric Settlement of Akrotiri.

Excavations of the site began in the middle of the 20th century by Professor S. Marinatos, who believed that Akrotiri was connected to the Lost Continent of Atlantis.

The site is extremely well-preserved, with houses, storage spaces, staircases, roads, a drainage system and other astonishing features.

The site of Ancient Thira is also located relatively close to the Maison Des Lys Hotel, on a hill between the settlements of Kamari and Perissa.

Ancient Thira was used as a look-out during ancient times, to protect the island against invaders.

The site includes a number of ruined structures, such as sanctuaries, temples, an agora, a theatre, a stoa, and a gymnasium.

In the capital town of Fira, we recommend taking a stroll through the narrow streets and visiting the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, as well as the Archaeological and Folklore Museums.

You may also like to see splendid cathedrals and the Gyzi Manor in Fira Town, or the marvellous Maritime Museum in Oia.
No visit to Santorini is complete without a trip to the volcanic isles of Thirassia, Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni, which are located in the famous Santorini Caldera.

From the Maison Des Lys Hotel Suites at the Santorini Caldera, guests can easily reach the following destinations:

  • Akrotiri Town: 500 m
  • Perissa Town: 10 km
  • Fira Town: 15 km
  • Santorini Airport (Monolithos): 13 km
