Even if Santorini is a quite small island, it’s additionally tied with stimulating things to do and chances to invest in the kinds of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that a honeymoon often excuses.
Plan your Santorini honeymoon like a breeze. We’ve conceived this guide to make the outlining process astonishingly simple. You just have to worry about your wedding. This is enough of a hassle itself… Don’t you think?
What is the best place to stay in Santorini on a honeymoon?
We have great Santorini villas for rent in Akrotiri, Pyrgos, and Megalochori which are great if you want to spend most of your day by the pool in total privacy. But if you need effortless access to shops, restaurants, and cafes then booking your Santorini villa in the 4 main towns is justified.
If you desire instant access to Santorini’s nightlife then Fira is the best choice. Imerovigli on the other hand is the most romantic town in Santorini but might be too calm for some honeymooners.
Oia is a winning combination of the two (more liveliness than Imerovigli but not almost as energetic as Fira). Firostefani is a 10-minute walk from Fira and appears to be like a more tranquil extension of that town.
You ‘ve got to consider if the villa you are going to book is only for you – the loving couple- or you are going to accommodate best friends to have the time of your life.
In both cases, we can make your wish come true even if you need us to organize an after wedding party at your villa!

What is the best time to go to Santorini for honeymoon?
The best time to go to Santorini for your honeymoon is unquestionably the summer. But…you can save notable amounts of money by opting to visit Santorini in the shoulder season. March and October are the ideal months.
Prices at this time are lower from every aspect. The disadvantage is the water at Santorini’s beaches will presumably be too cold to swim except you don’t mind.
April and September (the beginning and the end of the season), are more crowded and the prices are higher than March or October.
May throughout August is the hottest time to visit Santorini, but also when crowds and prices will be at their peak.
Even if Santorini is wonderful at any time of year, we’d recommend avoiding scheduling a Santorini honeymoon between November and February…Unless you and your mate don’t mind avoiding the seawater.
Book your accommodation as soon as possible as most of our luxury villas are booked quite early!
You will not get disappointed… You will carry so many beautiful pictures in your mind eager to come back someday!
