Story: It’s impossible to envisage Santorini without thinking about blue domes. Those wonderful demi-orbs protruding from an island which calls out for days that blur by in a haze of good food and sultry sunsets. That is the Greek islands, after all.

But Santorini is much more than what is snapped by countless tourists. Little-known enclaves like Red Beach; tiny lanes you’ll stumble across en route to Oia; overfilled gyros eaten street-side in Perissa; unexpected glimpses of the sea.

Those blue domes are the small end of the wedge. Between their intense colour, the brightness of whitewashed walls and shady cobbled streets, you’ll be transported to some other place. You’ll forget the tourists – or no longer notice them, at least – and adopt the island as your own sanctuary; a bubble that you want to nurture as if your own home.
