When you’re daydreaming about staying on a Greek island, you’re probably thinking of a place like the OIA Spirit Airbnb on Santorini. This beautiful holiday home is a true reflection of the traditional Cycladic architecture, with its whitewashed walls, curved archways, and domed ceilings. Located in the heart of the village, this Airbnb offers stunning views of the Aegean Sea from its spacious terrace.

The interior of the home is exquisitely styled, with every piece of furniture and décor reflecting the local culture and famously white aesthetic of the Greek islands. The highlight of staying here is probably stunning outdoor area. The terrace offers some of the best views in Oia, and it’s the perfect spot to spend a quiet evening with loved ones or friends. Guests can also make use of the private pool, taking in panoramic views of the ocean while relaxing in the warm waters.

The Airbnb is also conveniently close to all Oia has to offer. Stroll through the narrow city streets and take in the traditional Cycladic architecture. Admire the whitewashed buildings with their blue-domed roofs and small churches, and visit the many shops, cafes and restaurants along the way. The Maritime Museum of Oia, in particular, is a great place to learn about the island’s seafaring history.

It’s also the perfect time to indulge in traditional Greek cuisine. Fava is a traditional Santorinian dish made from split peas and onions, usually served as a puree and topped with diced onions, capers, and olive oil. You can find it in many restaurants around Oia. Sicne Oia is on the coast, there are plenty of delicious seafood options to choose from. Try the grilled octopus, fresh fish, or even squid, all cooked with local herbs and olive oil.
