Welcome to the Scirocco Villas in Santonrini
For individual tourists who love nature
The Scirocco Villas are located on the east coast with Aegean sea sunrise view , in ca. 200 m distance there is a secluded unspoiled beach.
The unique landscape surrounded by fields and chalk cliffs (Aspra Chomata), and the unspoiled volcanic coast line make the location of Scirocco Villas attractive.
A hide-away from usual tourist orientated holiday resorts, though it is only a 5 minute drive from Fira city center.
The complex consists of 7 units with sea view decorated in a traditional clear simple Cycladic island style.
Just below the complex in ca. 200 m distance, you find an untapped beach (since it is an volcanic island, stones are black). It is not prepared for tourists, so there is no hustle and bustle, and you can just listen to the waves and concentrate on the horizon. A few caves along the cost line which are built inside the different layers of the volcanic earth create a special atmosphere, as well as the Kanakari ruin (better not to be entered) an old tomatoe fabric build with stones from the coast line, down by the Kanakari beach
A ca 5 minute walk along the coast line to the South takes you to a small beach (Exo Gialos Firon) prepared for tourists and right next to it is a small marina (where a few locals use to have their fishing boats & yachts). It provides a cave tavern called ‘Yalos Gastronomy by the Sea’ which offers excellent food, sun loungers, local wine and beer, and selected music makes chilling perfect.
A ca 5 minute walk along the coast line to the North takes you as well to a small beach (Vourvoulos) also prepared for tourists, combined with a small marina for locals, with a traditional tavern and sun beds.
All mentioned beaches are not connected yet to the public bus network, so still a tip for insiders.
Only a couple of swans seem to have a regular time table pendling between Vourvoulos beach and Exo Gialos Firon beaches and the Scirocco Villas provide a free of charge shuttle service to these beaches and Fira! Also the owners are helpful in renting a vehicle.
In this quiet, secluded unique landscape you can easily relax. In spring you will find some mediterranean flowers and herbs, even in beginning of summer when it gets really dry, thyme and various species of cactus try to give at least some colour. Grapes use to grow low on the ground, it’s harvested is in August, fig trees sprout in February / March and are usually ripe end of July / beginning of August, and small Santorinian tomatoes are usually ready to be picked in June / July.
