Days 1 and 2: Santorini

You take a flight to Santorini from France. Once you’ve arrived on the island, you’ll head to your charming hotel and settle into a suite with infinity pool in the heart of the famous village of Oia, overlooking the volcano in a serene, romantic atmosphere.

On your first day in the Cyclades, stroll through Santorini’s two largest villages, Oia and Fira. Discover the white houses with their blue roofs and shutters, perched on the cliff that juts out into the Aegean Sea. Marvel at the contrasting colors, lose yourself in the flowery-scented alleyways and live to the rhythm of Santorini’s hot sun. On the second day of your trip, discover the other side of Santorini. Embark on a day cruise on a magnificent sailboat and discover the red and black sand beaches of the south of the island. Then head for the volcano and, if you like, climb it. And to round off the day in style, contemplate the orange sky reflected on the calm eddies of the water from your sailboat. A sunset you’ll never forget.

Days 3 and 4: Amorgos

This morning, take the ferry for just one hour to the charming island of Amorgos, much less popular with tourists than Santorini, which offers an authentic and peaceful image of Greece. In fact, it’s the island where the film “Le grand bleu” was shot. Return to your spa hotel, and drop off your luggage in a room overlooking the Aegean Sea and Aegiali beach. Then set off to discover the island and the hospitality of its inhabitants in the small village of Chora. You’ll feel like you’re the only tourists on the island, so enjoy the peace and quiet!

 

 

Days 5 to 7: Naxos

Leave the tranquil island of Amorgos and take the ferry to Naxos. Settle into a suite nestled in a lush Mediterranean garden. Start by visiting the capital, Chora, and its historic monuments, such as Castro Castle. Then discover the charming, fresh villages that surround it, such as Apiranthos and Halki. Don’t miss the Apollo kouros in the north of the island, the remains of an almost 10-metre statue of Apollo that was never completed.
In the second half of the day, explore the fine sandy beaches and crystal-clear coves of the island of Naxos to refresh yourself. You can also enjoy your hotel’s infinity pool overlooking the sea, and its restaurant ranked among the best on the island. Enjoy fresh Greek dishes modernized by the chef.

 

Day 8 and 9: Paros

Take the ferry for just half an hour to reach the last point of your journey, Paros. An island known for its white marble, its hills and valleys covered with olive trees and vineyards, inviting you to stroll. Here, you’ll be staying in a luxurious suite with sleek tones. You’ll enjoy a private pool and direct access to the private beach. Start by discovering the island’s most beautiful village, Naoussa, and its welcoming, soothing fishing port, the very image of the Cyclades. Follow the charming Byzantine road between the villages of Lefkes and Prodromos, also well worth a visit.

Day 10: Antiparos

Today, we’re off to AntiParos, a small island just east of Paros. Here, the island’s gentle way of life and human scale will captivate you. Take a postcard tour of the main village, with its narrow streets and white houses. Then set off to discover the island’s wild, deserted beaches. A true haven of peace that will make you feel like you’re in paradise.

 

Day 11: Return to France.

Return to France from Athens or Santorini airport.
