Infinity view Tinos island

The Viennese Girl photography blog travel lifestyle

I spent 3 weeks in July on the Greek islands. This is my first blog post from this adventure. I didn’t have the time to post anything before. August was very busy. I went to Hungary and then to France, and at the same time I was working on 2 extra projects. 

In July I visited 3 Greek islands: Crete, Hydra and Tinos island. Infinity view hotel in Tinos island was the last hotel I visited during this Greek island hopping. Infinity view is a brand new all-Suite Luxury Hotel and I was lucky and privileged to spend a few relaxing days in July here. You can’t imagine how much I enjoyed everything: the beach in front of the hotel, breakfast, my balcony, the infinity sea views from everywhere you look, the pool. The hotel is also very close to Tinos Town, so you can easily reach the Town on foot. Everything about the Infinity view hotel was truly exceptional and so tremendously relaxing! I hope you have the chance to visit it one day too.

Enjoy the photos. As always, I let them do the talking!

Caipirinha Residence

Caipirinha Residence

At the beginning of September, after I checked out from Archipel Mansion, I moved to Imerovigli and checked in at Caipirinha residence. Yep, I was one of those lucky persons who had they keys of a private villa in Imerovigli and could enjoy the caldera views for a couple of days. In this blog post, I am happy to share with you a few photos that I took during my stay.

They say that Imerovigli village is quieter than Oia and Fira and it offers the best views to the caldera because of its position, and I can confirm that. So if you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy breathtaking views and privacy, Imerovigli is maybe the right choice for you. The white-washed houses pretty much look alike in Imerovigli. What I actually found very useful during my meanderings in Imerovigli is that you can spot Caipirinha residence even when you are standing at the other side of the village, because right above the private villa, there is a windmill.

Apart from the sunset, scenery, relaxation and privacy, which are all an indisputable fact when you are staying at Caipirinha Residence, I personally enjoyed walking from Imerovigli to Fira and the way back on foot. That was my everyday exercise.

Santorini was the second stop of my Greek island hopping in September. The day I checked out from Caipirinha Residence, I took the ferry to the next island: Koufonisia.

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!

…A good time and fun

Many good things happened last year.

But if I had to pick one and name it as “the best of all“, that would be the Greek island hopping that I did with Pauline.

Without a doubt.

Don’t get me wrong. I am fully appreciative of all the great travel opportunities throughout the year. But there is just some kind of magic when a travel opportunity is combined with those three “s”: summer, sea and sun.

3 weeks of sea, sun and carelessness.

We left all our problems in the big cities that we live in, and embarked on an adventure to discover the Greek islands.

First stop: Milos island!
