AKROTIRI VILLAGE is a small fish village but the fact that such a remarkable civilization flourished here for approximately 15 centuries,gives it a special prestige. The ancient city of Akrotiri is the most archaelogical discovery in the eastern Mediterranean. The volcanic eruption (1600B.C) covered with lava the ancient city and preserved it in an excellent condition, as it happened in Pompeii. The site will worth a visit!
Walking up to the Castelli and Goulas late in the evening, particulaly when there are music nights and also, admiring the striking scenery of the white Lighthouse on the rocks will amaze you!
Not only can you have the chance to discover tasty treasures at the traditional taverns and restaurants or have your drink or coffee at Akrotiri but also when strolling along the square of Megalochori, another one traditional village very close to the accommodation. Supermarkets, groceries, restaurants, taverns, bakeries, pharmacy, ATM: a short drive or walk.
