Hi there,

I am Giannis, 35 years old and I grew up in Athens.
After studying and working abroad (UK and Switzerland) for 5 years,I decided to come back in Greece and work for a family business.

In 1998 my parents visited Santorini Island and they fell in love with Oia village where they bought that picturesque cave house…
Since then all about my summer vacations is to lay back at that terrace and admire the spectacular view.

Traveling is to share…
There is no better way of doing this, other than sharing the experience with other travelers.

Of course I will not lose any chance to discover unique destinations like Santorini around the world…
