In the Southwest corner of the majestic island of Santorini, you will find Pansion Carlos nestled in the heart of traditional Akrotiri, located 10 km from Fira, 8 km from the main port and only 12 km from the airport. Many travelers will find the relative peace and quiet of Akrotiri a refreshing break from the excitement and crowds of the more northern towns, but easy access to busses, car and moto rentals, and boat excursions leaves the island entirely within your reach.
Upon arrival you are likely to be greeted by Eva, the proprietress, or one of her helpful and considerate children. English, French, Spanish, and Italian are all spoken at the pansion, so guests will have no trouble feeling right at home. The family is ever-willing to help guests make the most of their stay. All your needs will be met, whether you simply need to choose the right beach for the day (red, black, or white sand?) or would like to arrange an excursion to the nearby volcano.
A charming town with clear traditional roots, Akrotiri blends the history of a hilltop Byzantine castle with traditional Santorini architecture. Clusters of whitewashed, blue-shuttered houses line the walk from Pansion Carlos up the hill to breathtaking and unique views of the island and its volcanoes. The town itself is situated above the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, one of the most important archaelogical sites in the world. The friendly locals and intimate feel of Akrotiri make it the perfect vacation destination for families, couples, and lone travelers who wish to have a relaxing trip to Greece.
