Archipel Mansion Santorini

Archipel Mansion Santorini

There are moments I think to myself that I’ve seen everything. This is of course due to the fact that I’ve travelled so much and have been fortunate to stay in wonderful properties around the world. But then, I get the chance to visit a few more properties, like Archipel Mansion in Fira, and I realize that there are still places and properties that manage to amaze me.

Good news! October is still summer in Greece, and in my opinion, it’s the best month to visit Santorini. I’d love to go back now. Less crowded and cooler temperatures. You can walk up and down the narrow streets, without sweating like you do during the warmer months. It’s October, but you can still wear summer clothes during the day. So, if you want to plan a spontaneous trip to Santorini, I highly recommend that you check out Archipel Mansion.

Santorini travel tip: For a great food and great wine meal on an open air rooftop patio, head to one of the prettiest villages in Santorini, Megalochori, to find Feggera Restaurant. This is where I had dinner the first night in Santorini.

A huge thank you to @ariahotels and Delenda family for letting me stay in and photograph this gorgeous holiday villa in “Fraggomahalas”, the ancient district of Santorini’s capital, Fira. Thank you for letting me experience a little part of its history!

Cyclades

Cyclades

I’d like to update The Viennese Girl travel blog and share with you these photos that I adore so much. This summer I was very lucky to visit 13 Greek islands and spend it between the Cyclades and Vienna. Some of the trips to the Cyclades were invitations/press trips and the rest ones were private trips. I travel, first and foremost, to take photos. But I also travel to keep my passion for traveling alive, to feed my brain and fill up my soul with feelings of excitement. I travel for my mental health and my well being : )

I am happy to publish these photos. They were taken with my new camera, the Fujifilm X100F. After a lot of thought and research on the web, I made the splurge. The camera comes with a big price tag, but it’s value for money. I am very happy with the camera and its performance. The Fujifilm X100F is lightweight and the quality of the photos is top notch. The best of all is that the focus is very easy to achieve. That means that my friends, who are not pro photographers, can easily take in focus photos of me, without me having to worry too much for the focus.

Kalderimi traditional houses were love at first sight! The owners have given a lot of love and care for this special place, so the customers will feel like being in their own house. Sometimes, at the moment you check out of a hotel that you have enjoyed very much, you leave a piece of your heart…Does it also happen to you? I urge you to visit!

I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Municipality of Astypalaia, and especially Mrs. Maria Kampouri for inviting us to explore and photograph their beautiful island. I love Astypalaia island. I simply love Astypalaia’s positive energy. I’ll never get tired of saying this.

After 3 amazing days at San Luis, we thought we had seen “everything” from South Tyrol! But nope! Our chauffer picked us up from San Luis Hotel and brought us to Castelrotto. Three more exciting days were ahead of us!

At the end of May we spent three days at the Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites. We absolutely loved it! In this blog post, I am glad to present you my photos from this experience.

I’d like to take a minute to thank Sandra who has been so adorable to us during dinner time. Seriously, it’s not often that you get treated so nicely! I guess she makes everybody’s dinner an unforgettable experience with her smile and friendliness.

I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Official Tourism board of South Tyrol for inviting me to explore their beautiful region and the family of Schgaguler Hotel for being so great and kind as hosts. It’s a shame that I didn’t know how beautiful this part of the world is. Now I know!

San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges left us speechless! From the moment we checked in till the moment we checked out, we were in awe. Even at the moment I was editing those photos, this place was giving me goosebumps. I am not good at finding the right words to describe such an amazing life experience. As usual, I will let the the photos do the talking! Enjoy!

Here it doesn’t feel like you are staying in a hotel. It feels like you stay in a small exclusive village and you are happy to meet your neighbors for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served in your chalet.

I’d like to thank wholeheartedly San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges for the invitation and for all the pampering! Thank you for creating this sanctuary for all of us to enjoy!  It’s literally one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed. I want to stay positive and believe that it won’t take me long time to return!
