If you’re looking for a family-friendly place to stay in Santorini, you may not know where to start.
With so many places to choose from, it can be hard to know which one is right for your family. You want somewhere with plenty of activities and amenities for the kids, but you also need a place that’s comfortable and affordable for everyone.
I’ve got you covered. My guide will help you find the perfect place to stay in Santorini with your family – whether you’re looking for a luxury hotel, an affordable apartment, or something in between.
So where to stay in Santorini with family? The best places to stay in Santorini with family are Kamari and Perissa. Kamari is a bit more touristy, but it’s got a great beach and plenty of restaurants and bars. Perissa is quieter and has more of a local feel to it, but it’s also closer to the black sand beaches.
Either way, you won’t be disappointed with the views!
