Every sunset here is a big gathering of people who want to watch it from balconies, terraces and the white washed cute houses. It’s a show!

Oia is an almost unreal , quiet and unique place but it’s not for partying and clubbing.

We love so much Oia that we could probably spend our whole lives there…
