Elopement Venues in Santorini:

See descriptions of each venue below:

  1. Venetsonos Winery Santorini, Greece – This venue offers a terrace with incredible views of the Caldera cliffs and water below. This option is great if you want to include family and friends. It’s a winery which means you’ll have great wine options and can even book a tasting during your stay.
  2. Rooftop in Oia Oia, Santorini – There are several rooftops in Oia that are perfect for a two person elopement. It’s the most intimate way to say your vows. Click here to see an intimate Santorini elopement for inspiration.
  3. Fanari Villas, Santorini, Cyclades, Greece – This villa has stunning views of the Agean Sea and the Island’s scenery. There are multiple ceremony options available on different levels of the hotel. Fanari Villas offers champagne by the pool (you need to make a reservation for this) and you can hire fireworks to celebrate your elopement!
  4. Le Ciel Santorini, Greece – La Ciel is located in Santorini between Oia and Imerovigli. This hotel offers a view of Oia and Thirasia (remnants of a volcanic eruption). You have the option for an indoor or outdoor ceremony here.
  5. Skaros Rock Imerovigli, Santorini – Skaros Rock is in Santorini. It’s a beautiful rock formation at the edge of Imerovigli. You can say your vows at an abandoned church with the cliff and the sea as your backdrop, or you can take the path and say your vows on Skaros Rock itself.
  6. Dana Villas Wedding Venue Fira, Santorini, Greece – Dana Villas has an outdoor terrace with views of the Caldera, the volcano. They offer a white cycladic canopy for your ceremony. There is convenient parking nearby for up to four vehicles. This is another great elopement venue option in Santorini.

Santorini Transportation:

To get to Santorini you can fly or take a ferry.

Once you’re in Santorini, you’ll find taxi’s and buses.

You can also rent a car or ATV/quad bikes. However, be very careful if you rent a quad. As a result of  quad rentals, there are a lot of accidents and injuries every year in Santorini.

Places to Stay:

I recommend staying in Immerovigli or Oia. Immerovigli is less crowded but you can still walk to Oia. Oia is more touristy, however, it’s great if you want to be close to the restaurants, ammoudi bay, and shopping.

Many of Santorini’s wedding venues are villas and hotels. That being said, you may want to stay in the same place where your ceremony is located. If not, there are plenty of other options. Such as the following:
