  • It's sad that I have to leave this review, I visited this bookstore with my girlfriend in June, and between the two of us, we spent almost 3 grand on books. I bought an amazing copy of Dante's Divine....  more

  • Loved this little bookstore that is crammed full of books in many, many languages. There are some displayed first editions that are intriguing too! The owner is a hoot BTW!

  • Spent 7 days in Oia and would have walked past at varying times on a dozen occasions and despite the sign saying that the store will open at a particular time, it never was.

  • I loved the feel and design and everything about this place. I found an 1874 version of Alice I had been looking for and had to have it. In such excitement I didn't compare prices and was charged $1000 when the edition goes for around 700 in US dollars meaning I had been very over charged sadly. I'm in love with my book but I'm sad prices aren't a little more fair. I understand needing to turn a profit and run a business but I felt like they swindled me because of my excitement for the find. Still I love my book and am so happy I found it I just wish the price had been a little more fair
  • This is heaven on an island of already so much bliss. If you love books, you'll want to spend hours here! I also didn't realize there was a terrace so be sure to check it out! I'll definitely have to go to Santorini again because of its beauty, but also to see the terrace!
  • Surprising little basement find in a town known more for its sun, fun & iconic Greek city scapes. They sold a large variety, from basic quick reads to fill time, to first editions for thousands of Euros. Thoroughly enjoyable, if you are so inclined.
  • Awesome little bookstore with great recommendations and neat first editions. Definitely swing by if you're in the area. Books are priced reasonably too so good place to go if you need a book while traveling around.
  • A quaint and unassuming little bookstore carved out of a cave. They have hardcover, paperbacks, limited editions, first editions and some old antique history books. It's definitely a rare gem to see stores like these and it's in Oia! It's worth every single second...
