Kapari Natural Resort: Plan Your Stay

Located in Santorini, Greece

How to Get There

Most travelers arrive in Santorini by boat. Ferries depart several times a day from the port at Piraeus, near Athens, and the voyage takes nine to ten hours by car ferry or four hours by catamaran. Upon arrival in the port of Athinios, shuttles are available for the transfer to Fira. The lodge is a two-kilometer drive from Fira by taxi or rental car, and transfers can be arranged by the hotel.

Several Greek airlines fly from Athens to Monolithos, Santorini's airport, and connections are available to Mykonos, Crete, and Rhodes several times a week. European charters also fly to Santoríni. Upon arrival, Kapari will arrange a transfer or guests can travel the ten kilometers from the airport to the lodge by taxi or rental car.

What to Expect

Kapari is built into a traditional Santorini village, set on a hilltop and linked by a labyrinth of stairs and alleys. Visitors to the hotel, and to the village of Imerovigli, should be able to climb easily up and down stairs and navigate steep, narrow passageways.

Weather and Seasons

Santorini has a relatively mild climate, with warm, sunny days throughout the summer and rainier days in winter with colder temperatures that rarely dip below 50°F. From June to September, temperatures range from 75°F to 86°F. Spring and fall are pleasant, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

What to Bring

Pack for adventures by land and sea—a bathing suit, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, sandals, light clothing, and a pair of comfortable, close-toed walking shoes for excursions. In the warmer months, bring a lightweight sweater or jacket for the early mornings and evenings; if you are traveling during the winter, bring warm layers.

Traveling with Family

Kapari Natural Resort welcomes children age 15 and older. Children under 15 may be accommodated upon request and availability.
