Circular chess sets

I was in Oia on honeymoon and I was in a gift store that sold 3 dimensional chess boards. Does anyone know the name of this store? I would like to contact them to purchase a board and chess pieces. The boards I saw we're in two colours green or blue.

Restaurant with a view: where is seagul?  (5 Answers)


We're looking for a restaurant with a view to have lunch and Seagul looks like an interesting option problem is I can't find the address or how to get there. I'm just wondering if someone can give us a direction how to get there.

If you have other restaurant suggestion we would really love to hear it. We just want a resto with a view.

Thanks in advance!

Need help deciding hotel in Oia  (5 Answers)

I am visiting Greece for a vacation with my husband for our wedding anniversary. We will be spending 3 nights in Santorini in 2nd week of May. My folks are also joining us. So we would need 2 rooms and look at options where my folks won’t have to walk or hike too much to get to their room.

Post a lot of research we have liked Angel Cave house and Marizan Cave. Unable to decide which one to choose.

Here’s what we would like in a Hotel:

• Nice rooms- not too luxurious but nice, clean, comfortable rooms with great views

• Would like a place where we can gaze at the sunset from our room

• Looking at a budget of 100 to 130 euros per night

• A decent breakfast not just a loaf of bread and coffee

• A free car park and luggage carried to room

• Most important a gorgeous view and a typical santorini- oia- experience

Pls feel free to suggest other properties, if my choices aren't very wise. Your inputs will matter and help a lot.

How much time should I spend in Santorini, Greece?? How to get there?  (3 Answers)

I am going to Italy and Greece in May. I am travelling by myself. I have booked my airplane ticket, but nothing else! I am going for 16 days, and have not yet decided where/how I will divide my time.

What I am sure of is that I want to go to Santorini. Here are my 2 questions:

1. How many days should I spend there? I enjoy nightlife, eating out, sightseeing, lounging by the pool at my hotel. Is 3 days enough? Should I stay for 5-6? Is there enough to do on the island that I won't be bored if I stay for 5-6 days?

2. How do I get there from either Rome, or Athens? Is it better to take a plane, or a boat? And I don't speak the language. If I do take a boat, will it be confusing?

Place to stay in Oia - May / June 05  (7 Answers)

My wife and I are staying on Santarini from the end of May to early June. We have locked in Oia as the area to stay. We have also narrowed down to 3 places to stay - 1. Nikos Villas 2. Canava II 3. Perivolas (this is the one we both like the look of the most)$$ not a real factor, as anything in Oia is$$ Has anyone stayed at either of these places ? Any comments / feedback would be appreciated. Regards, Geoff

Getting to Santorini  (9 Answers)

I got invited to a wedding in June and I would have to pay for 5 plane tickets. Flights from the US to Santorini seem outrageous, and very expensive to Athens as well. I know easyjet from London is cheap, then again that will be 2 planes for me and a long cruise. Does anyone else know of affordable options thanks
