Holidays to Pyrgos offer a unique setting – on top of a volcanic crater surrounded by vineyards, with lively Thira a short drive away.

One of a kind

Pyrgos is an inland village on the island of Santorini, with panoramic views and centuries-old architecture. Hike along the old pathways that snake through the hillsides, and admire Greece's famous whitewashed houses and blue-domed church roofs as you go – keep your eyes peeled for photo spots that show off the Aegean Sea, too.

Colourful coast

It might be inland, but Pyrgos is pretty close to some stunning shorelines. If watersports are your thing, take the 15-minute drive south east to Perissa Beach for scuba diving and paragliding. If striking scenery's more your bag, head south west for 15 minutes to Red Beach – its amber-coloured cliffs and turquoise waves won't disappoint.

Wine country

Thanks to its volcanic soil, Santorini’s ripe territory for growing grapes. Most of the vineyards offer tours for wine tasting and dining – with spectacular views to boot. Get ready to channel your inner sommelier, because there are two vineyards and wineries just five minute’s drive from Pyrgos.
