Your guide to Karterados holidays
Karterados has a cobbled together mix of impressive 19th-century houses, formerly owned by ship captains, and traditional cave dwellings, as well as the traditional whitewashed Greek homes you come to expect. The combination is a unique, interesting, and beautiful range of architecture to take in as you amble through the paved streets. Local is the name of the game here, from your friendly and homely accommodation to the local tavernas, people know each other by name and the local goods are as fresh as they come. Wander through the town and take in the atmosphere, visit the beautiful windmill in the central square and the many lovely chapels and churches dotted around town. The local food is some of the best in Santorini with one of the bakeries famed across the island. Karterados is also an excellent base for exploring everything else Santorini has to offer. From shopping, partying, and organising tours in Fira, to spending lazy days on one of Santorini’s many beaches or visiting ancient historical sites, Karterados is perfectly situated to access all the top attractions in Santorini.
Although Karterados is an inland town and doesn’t have a beach of its own, you can still enjoy the beach every day of your stay without any trouble, in fact, you arguably have more choice.
