The atmospheric village of Oia is probably the number one choice with its picture postcard appeal, the village clings to the edge of the Caldera and from each balcony, you enjoy the famous Santorini sunsets.

Santorini for friends
Most people come to Santorini for the scenery and to visit the many beautiful villages including Oia, Pyrgos, Megalochori and of course the capital of Fira which is really a large village.
The island has a little more to offer and can be a great place to stay for a group of friends or couples looking for lively nightlife and some lazy beach days.
The ideal place to stay is one of the beach resorts or maybe the main town area of Fira which includes also the connecting villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli. The best nightlife on the island is in the main town, here you can find many excellent accommodations including many excellent first class villas for couples and large groups. Fira gets very busy over the peak months of July and August, maybe Imerovigli or Firostafani is a better option with the center of Fira just a 15-minute walk.
If you want a town location with great views maybe take a look at Porto Fira Villas which offer private plunge pools and lovely views of the famous caldera. For larger groups, Erossea villa is a beautiful 5 bedroom villa with private heated pool. Caldera views and a quieter location in the area of Imerovigli, but just 15 a minute walk from the lively center of Fira.
