SPOTTED IN SANTORINI – A CITY GUIDE


Petite introduction « à la française » à ce city/island guide.
8 jours passés à Santorini. Nous avons séjourné dans le même hôtel qui offrait une vue incroyable sur la Caldera et un coin détente paisible au bord de la piscine.
J’étais accompagnée, entre autre, d’une personne connaissant très bien l’île après y avoir séjourné près d’une dizaine de fois.
Toujours accueillis à bras ouverts, nous avons testé des adresses qui ne sont pas celles sur lesquelles on tombe par hasard au détour d’une ruelle pendant une visite.Perché sur une falaise donnant sur un merveilleux port à Vlichada (To Psaraki), perdu dans le centre de l’île entre Pyrgos et Fira avec une vue incroyable sur la mer et les collines (Metaxi Mas), en maillot de bain sous une paillote avec le bruit des vagues et la fraicheur du vent (Mesa Pigadia), … toutes ces adresses valent le déplacement, vous pouvez me croire.
Je vous conseille, pour une expérience calme et reposante, loin du fléau touristique, de loger près d’Akrotiri et non près d’Oia ou Fira.
Louer une voiture, un kwad ou un scooter et de demander un casque car les gens sont inconscient des risques qu’ils prennent sur cette île.
Si vous voulez la vue incroyable comme à Oia, préférez Imerovigli, beaucoup plus charmante et paisible.
Mangez, reposez-vous, soyez charmé, profitez du soleil et détendez-vous.
Je suis certaine que cette île saura vous charmer dès le printemps prochain.
D’ici là, couvrez-vous bien !

Not so easy to know about the restaurant if you don’t know any local.
