Earino Suites and Villas are located in the picturesque, historical village of Akrotiri. The village becoming famous after the discovery in 1967 of the pre-historical settlement by Archaeologist Spyros Marinatos.
The archaeological site is classed as one of the most important discoveries in Greece.
The settlement was destroyed in the Theran eruption about 1627 BC and buried in volcanic ash, which preserved the remains of fine frescoes and many objects and artworks. The Suites are located in a superb position, overlooking the caldera and
volcano. The whitewashed villages of the Island can be seen nestled, encircling the caldera, overlooking the contrasting deep blue color of the
Aegean Sea. The villa is built in a private area giving view to Akrotiri Kasteli.
Walk to the most famous volcanic Red Beach (2 km from Earino) and catch the boat to see the White Beach as well. Visit two of the few car accessible Caldera’s beaches, in small distance from the suites, or the sheltered idyllic, black pebbled, Mesa Pigadia Beach. Visit for swimming the nearby, tranquil Vlychada beach (5km) to admire the protected natural landscape with the volcanic sculptured cliffs and the black sand. Enjoy the sunshine at the long black sand beach of Perissa-Perivolos-Agios Georgios within small distance from Earino. Discover your favourite spot of the Black Beach and profit of the free sun umbrellas that Earino offers at selected beach bars for its guests.
On your way back from the Black Beach make a romantic walk in Emporio. A remarkable spot is the Gavrilos hills that have eight traditional windmills and offer a ravishing view. The village holds admirable blue-domed churches and tiny chapels. The big attraction of Emporio is the medieval Kasteli. In close distance lies the Tower of Nimborio (The “Goulas”), a square building that was used as a watchtower and a refuge.
Don’t miss visiting the traditional Megalochori (5,5km), which existence is recorded back to the 17th century. Home to historical mansions, old traditional houses, pirate hideaways and wine canavas, it has a history of merchants and wealthy land barons exporting Vinsanto wine that the island still produces.
Driving up north, Pyrgos village (7,5km) welcomes you. Pyrgos can be found at the highest point of Santorini, with panoramic views of the whole island all the way to the village of Oia. This hillside village was declared a
protected settlement in 1995. Pyrgos is a typical Fortress Settlement of the Cyclades. On the hilltop you can find ruins of Kasteli Castle, one of the
five ‘kastelia’ on the island.
Earino is the ideal place to stay in its tranquil environment, privileging privacy and serenity, whilst giving easy access to the capital Fira (10km), the romantic Imerovigli with Skaros Rock, the medieval capital of Santorini, or the cosmopolitan Oia (20km) with the famous sunset. Alternatively, watch the seductive Santorinian sunset at Akrotiri’s lighthouse, the “Faros”,
