Emporio

Nalas Suites sit perfectly on the southern part of Santorini, in the historically acclaimed village of Emporio.

Its name reveals its commercial value, as the village has been the island’s centre of commerce for centuries. Just 10 miles from Fira, the vibrant capital of Santorini, Emporio is the largest southern settlement on the island and boasts a long-lasting history. In the heart of Emporio, travellers are free to admire the well-preserved “castle-like” structures called kastelia.

Each kasteli represents the distinctive building method of the islanders, so as to protect themselves from any hostile intrusion. In this way, they used to camouflage the buildings and bring them close together, creating curved and sturdy fortifications to withstand the enemies’ attacks and even lure them away.

From Emporio village, you may easily access all the major attractions and points of interest in Santorini. The archaeological site of Akrotiri sits just a few minutes’ drive from Nalas Suites, along with the famous Lighthouse for splendid sunsets. The Red, White and Black beaches are all situated on the south of Santorini, making access from Emporio village smooth and prompt. Vlihada, Perivolos and Perissa beaches are also close-by, while in Kamari the beach is combined with a splendid promenade filled with restaurants, cafes and bars to enjoy.

Transport to the port and the airport is easy and undisturbed, due to the privileged location of Nalas Suites.
