Below you will read all about the settlement of Finikia, Oia and the things to do in Santorini.
From the Settlement of Finikia…
Finikia is considered among the more serene and traditional villages of the island. Positioned at the entrance of the village of Oia, Finikia is scattered with cave houses with yards and canavas (the typical storage rooms for wine barrels in Santorini). In the center of the village we find the church of Panagia Matrona, one of the most famous churches in Santorini that celebrates on October 20th. This is the biggest religious feast on the island and you will live an amazing experience if you stay in Ananda Vintage around that time. In Finikia you will witness the agricultural side of Santorini as here reside a lot of wine makers and farmers and a stroll at the narrow alleys of the settlement is an experience that will make you feel the true essence of Santorini.
…to Oia village…
The village of Oia, found a few meters after Finikia and Ananda Vintage, is definitely Santorini’s most famous sunset spot and probably the most picturesque village of the island. The breath-taking views to the caldera, the volcano, the sea and the nearby islands, the architecture that combines impressive mansions with elegant cave houses, the plethora of choices for entertainment and shopping and its enchanting aura make Oia a place to love and return. The guests of Ananda Vintage can visit Oia whenever they feel like as it is conveniently close. Among the things do in Oia are strolls to the alleys, visits to the Naval Museum and the galleries, shopping, swimming at the nearby beaches and visiting the Ammoudi bay for a meal with traditional tastes at the seaside tavernas.
