This little bookshop is a hidden gem. A magical world where you can enjoy a calm athmosphere, surrounded by beautiful books. One of my favourite spots in Oia

Go there, be inspired... we walked in just for Finland ended up buying 2 books, a notebook and a map. We were just feeling a positive energy in this "cave" and hope to come back soon. Loved it.

Having haunted Charing Cross Road for many years, I didn't expect to find an ectoplasmic outreach of it here in Oia. It wasn't open when we passed by, but the owner said he'd open for us; which was nice, but unnecessary, as we decided to return after lunch. Whilst he didn't have anything specific either of us were looking for,... More

If you love books you MUST visit here. The selection of your typical Indigo-style reads wasn't great, but the place has more character than you can imagine. From old quotes, pieces of the bookstores history, to rare finds (like a first edition of The Little Prince) - it's totally swoon-worthy. It's definitely worth a stop.

This beautiful little shop is easy to miss, tucked away as it is beneath the street, down a few stairs. OH BUT DO NOT MISS IT! Do not miss the first editions behind the shopkeeper. DO buy some of the local lavender so when you sleep you will dream of Atlantis. DO take time to real the wit and wisdom... More

My husband and I were visiting Santorini for our honeymoon and decided to walk around Oia for a day. We were immediately drawn to this bookstore when we passed through. It is such an interesting place to see that I definatly recommend stopping by (and, if you're like me, you won't be able to resist getting a few odd books).... More
