Sheer cliffs and stunning sunsetsBe blown away by this volcanic gem
Among the most astonishing spectacles of the Mediterranean, Santorini is an island of wonder waiting to be explored. To truly appreciate this Greek island, it’s always recommended that you arrive over its deep blue waters by boat to witness its raw natural beauty. Changed forever in 16 BC by a volcanic eruption of colossal proportions, this island in the Cyclades was transformed with sheer cliffs of lava and multi-coloured rock. In stark contrast are the iconic white dwellings that stand high above the caldera’s lip, filled with the warmth of a most welcoming population.
Volcanic adventures await
Luxurious holidays in Santorini offer unrivalled opportunities for unique adventures. Travel out to distant wineries to sample incredible vintages or dine high up in upstanding restaurants with the volcano’s caldera in view. Michelin star chefs will present you with delicious treats to taste as you behold the awe-inspiring scenery that surrounds you.
Santorini is ready to be explored, strap on a pack and hike around its trails on guided tours to learn the history of the astonishing eruption that created the islands present appearance. Visit Pyrgos - a village right at the Caldera’s edge - or explore Fira’s museums, such as the Prehistoric Museum of Thera dedicated to Santorini’s origins.
Exotic beaches await with a bountiful selection of exciting water sports to try when you tire of bathing in the shimmering sun. Jet ski, paddle board or kayak off the coastline or dive deep beneath the majestic Aegean to witness underwater life up close as you’ve never seen it before. The beaches of Santorini all feature the unmistakable dark grey sand of the island along with the fragrant white lilies known as halassókrini. From the well-tended Kamari to Perivolos and Perissa, there are multiple beaches to visit on your island excursion.
From luxurious boutique hotels to secluded coastal villas, you’ll find an incredible array of opulent accommodation while you’re visiting Santorini. With suites of palatial proportions, you can relax on a balcony enjoying the cool evening breeze that blows over the Cyclades. Famed for its exquisite cuisine, you’ll find the island full of new flavours to arouse your senses. Visit local tavernas for a taste of the traditional or eat at your resort for world-class fare served by attentive ambassadors ready to make your stay unforgettable.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
