What makes a tourist destination the ideal place for a couple to visit on holiday? Peace, natural beauty and a romantic atmosphere are the backdrop to the best summer holidays. Astypalea is in a perfect position to provide all these. It is home to one of the most beautiful villages in the Aegean, and the whole island is yours to explore with your partner, a blank canvas for you to create your own perfect holiday.
From the very first moment you arrive, you will have plenty of opportunities to live the holiday you have been dreaming of. You will find the right accommodation for you, and there is always that wonderful view which gives you endless…. opportunities to take selfies. And, not long after you arrive, you will be ready to go for a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Are you and your partner going to hide away on a deserted beach, enjoy the fun at a small beach bar or the absolute luxury of relaxing on an organised beach? It’s completely up to you!
And no holiday would be complete without taking a walk round Chora, the main village on the island. Shortly before the sun begins to set, you can climb hand in hand up to Kastro to enjoy the panoramic view. You can make this small fortified village the setting for a wonderful chapter in your own personal love story, a chapter that the two of you will keep as a sparkling secret in the depths of your souls. But of course you can share your photos with your friends – and before you know it they will pack their things for a trip to Greece to collect their own “likes”. And if your loved one makes the big decision ... then the setting is perfect for a romantic proposal. Lots of other people have got engaged here before. Why not you?
In the evening, the island’s quiet bars will be the perfect places for you to get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday lives and to find the peaceful serenity that you need to rediscover your life as a couple. An embrace, some gentle words, a glass of wine, the magic of the Aegean and your partner... in the end, we don’t need a lot to be happy.
