CR fashionbook magazine writes about Santorini and the “Pink” Cave House.


When you’re trying to decide where to take your summer holidays, there are a number of factors that can quickly turn the idea of a last minute long weekend getaway in to a mammoth 13-hour flight across the Atlantic, in search of a destination that’s obscure enough for you to actually Geotag.

Your final decision could be based on finding somewhere with that elusive combination of hedonism and culture (yes, even Ibiza has a contemporary art museum) or you could be on the hunt for somewhere that’s so overwhelmingly aesthetically pleasing that you’ll risk your entire data roaming allowance to get that ‘gram.

And now with Pantone’s bubble gum shade of ‘pale dogwood’ inspiring every designer from Balenciaga to Gucci and Céline, pastel is undeniably this year’s most coveted hue – so why not pay a visit to the world’s dreamiest, soft-hued destinations.

Santorini, Greece

It’s known as the “supermodel of the Greek islands” for a reason. With its whitewashed sugar cube houses, multi-coloured volcanic cliffs and red and white lava pebbled beaches, Santorini is undeniably the most insta-worthy of the Greek islands. The island—which was born out of a cataclysmic volcanic eruption—has long been the go-to spot for Greek royalty and the fashion crowd (Gianni Versace holed up at the iconic Tsitouras Collection hotel for a month) and with its lilac sunrises, azure blue waters and endless sunsets it’s easy to see why. Be sure to pay a visit to the small fishing village of Oia in the far north of the island – and stay at the super kitsch Pink Cave House. It’s like Santorini’s answer to the Beverly Hills Hotel – it’s got three sprawling terraces, a hot tub – and is visible from every point of the village.
