Books We Like

There are some translated works of Greek writers and subjects of Greek history, but mostly our library is composed of books left by our guests, free to be read and passed along or exchanged by future guests. Below is a selection of books whose stories are either passed on, or refer to the island.

This book is like a bird. A migratory bird that would like to pick ypu up gently and fly you away. Its two wings target different points, therefore have two different aims. One wants the traveller to get to know the little town of Oia and the work of its people. The other aims beyond what the senses easily perceive. It seeks to put into words what is hidden, to hover over it just long enough for it to be revealed.

Kochilas delivers new material with her customary aplomb, knowledge, and enthusiasm. The book, 380 pages of recipes and photographs, is one that some might be tempted to leave on the coffee table, because it is both beautiful to look at and eminently readable, but its more than 200 original, mouth-watering recipes that demand to be brought into the kitchen.

A biography of a person and a place, a life full of storms and calms in Santorini and Piraeus, yesterday and today. A life indissolubly bound up with the sea, shipping and seamanship: from the sails of the schooner, to the Liberty Ships as indemnity for the War: from neighbourhood gatherings on the Island, to travels into Europe.
