Destionation Spotlight: Santorini Part II

Post image for Destionation Spotlight: Santorini Part II

Last week we featured the beautiful island of Santorini, Greece, where our catalog team shot the December book. This book has me longing for a winter vacation, and Santorini seems like an ideal place for just that. Here’s a look at where our team stayed and one of their favorite restaurants!

Our team stayed at the gorgeous Villa Fabrica, a renovated factory space formerly used to produce and store wine, located  just below the ruins of the historic Castle of Pyrgos. The villa is sleek and spacious with minimal design and lots of outdoor space, doubling as the location for our catalog shoot. And the views… out of this world!

While in Santorini, our team had dinner at a restaurant called Selene – located near the Villa, in the village of Pyrgos.  The restuarant prides itself on serving authentic Greek cuisine made with local produce and wine made from grapes grown right there on the island. In addition to what sounds like an amazing menu, can you imagine dining on a balcony overlooking this?!:

ouzo

A popular aperitif in Greece is Ouzo, an anise (or licorice) flavored liquor – I’ve tried it before, it is definitely an acquired taste! More to come…
