In the lovely, tranquil village of Akrotiri you can find the well-known lighthouse located on the extreme southwest part of the island, 18 kilometers away from the capital of Santorini. It is considered one of the best and most beautiful lighthouses in Cyclades. Attuned to the rest of the island, it is an admirable building with whitewashed walls standing on the edge of a high cliff right above the sea. It is, by all means, an idyllic setting.

Greek Easter is in April or May every year and if you want to visit Santorini during that time, then I do recommend to book in Megalochori village. Easter is the most holy celebration in Greece and it is celebrated one week after the Catholic.
