Description

Get intimately acquainted with Santorini, home to one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes, with this luxury Mediterranean photography break.

Santorini lies on the southern most island of the Cylades, a blue lagoon in the Aegean sea. Site of the result of the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history, the island invites you to lose yourself in its breathtaking sunsets, and seemingly infinite blue sea views. Known as the ‘black pearl of the Aegean’, there is more to Santorini than glorious white beaches on the shores of a crystal clear sea.

Around the basin, hanging off cliffs of 150 to 300 meters in height, one can admire some of the most beautiful traditional villages of the Greek Isles. The lively colours of the white Cycladic houses and blue painted windows contrast stunningly against the black volcanic rocks rising from sea. This scenery had inspired artists and visitors alike for centuries and it is no surprise that Santorini is oft posited as the potential location of lost island of Atlantis.

This luxury photography break promises a leisurely trip, with enough time to enjoy all the sights, and capture only the finest shots of this stunning landscape. Ensuring you optimise your time on the island, a locally based professional photographer will guide across Santorini on a four-hour private photo tour. Your guide is not only an expert photographer, but will have an in depth knowledge of Santorini.

From the more popular spots, to the hidden nooks and crannies, you will explore Santorini in all its glory. Photograph the cosy architecture, gaze at the distinct blue domes across a sea of white houses and explore this Mediterranean island, with its rich daytimes, and soothing nights.

Of course, during your time in Santorini, you will want to enjoy some of the best Greek cuisine the island has to offer. As such we will book you in for the tasting menu dinner at Selene, rated by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the island's leading restaurants. The rooftop terraces sculpted into the volcanic cliffs of Santorini, offer an unmatched ambience for your dining experience.

There are few better places to enjoy dinner in Santorini whether under a dusky sky, or under the moon’s gentle light. The Mediterranean and Neoclassical Greek menu is based on fresh local produce from the island, and features sea food brought daily from the market at Fira, as well as traditional vegetarian dishes. Look forward dishes such as sea bass served with garlic and stuffed courgette and fresh squid served with smoked fava beans and cuttlefish ink flakes.

For the duration of your stay, you'll be staying in a leading 5-star hotel in Santorini. The exact hotel depends on dates, but rest assured it will always be in a prime location, allowing for easy access to all the most famous landmarks and laden with luxurious amenities. We will also provide you with a personalised itinerary for your trip, which will include all the dates, times, and locations you need, as well as our definitive guide to capturing this picturesque island through a lens.

Santorini is a popular tourist destination, and it holds its bustle well, but we suggest October as one of the best times to visit. The summer influx of tourists has just finished and the landscape reverts from a more cosmopolitan atmosphere to a more intimate one on this Santorini photography break.

Reviews

  • Unique Break in Santorini

    Santorni is a very unique island, the likes of which you are likely to see in very few places in the world. It's unique landscape and the photo tour really helped us capture the best that the island has to offer, our guide was very knowledgable and showed us to spots we would have never considered, great experience for any photographer.
