“Santorini dreaming” essays – enter now !

dream quote 1


It all started as an idea over dinner… to make someone’s dream come true. Since then there have been many phone calls, meetings and discussions about how, where and when. I have given you glimpses of the hotels and have outlined what you have to do to enter.

You have waited patiently for this final overview of the conditions of entry and prize listing… so here it is !

Ahem… we have to sound all official now:


Grand prize

5 nights accommodation for two on Santorini:

2 x nights at “Volcano View Villas” 

3 x nights at “Andronis Luxury Suites” in Oia

(Please note: the grand prize does NOT include airfares to Greece. Accommodation will be provided between June 15th – July 15th 2010… exact dates to be confirmed at the time the winner is announced)

The winner will also enjoy:

– a romantic dinner for two

– wine tasting at Santo wines

– dinner at Ammoudi (Oia)

– Aegean Designs gift 

We are also arranging many other surprises which will make your stay on Santorini very memorable. You will see and experience things that most visitors never do and you will meet many of the locals in Oia. But most of all… you will have the time to enjoy yourselves in one of the world’s most beautiful villages, on arguably the world’s most dramatic & romantic island… staying in two of the very best hotels it has to offer.

The two runners up will also receive gifts from Aegean Designs as well as discount vouchers from the two participating hotel sponsors.

Conditions of entry 

 An essay of under 1000 words will need to be submitted via email to:

oiadweller at yahoo dot com

Entries will be accepted from Friday 9th October 2009 – Monday 9th November 2009.

Please note that depending on volume received Oiasantorini.com reserves the right to post/publish any or all of the submitted entries.

The winner will be announced on Friday 20th November 2009.


I hope this is all taken in the spirit it was meant. This is not a commercial competition by multinational travel agencies. It was put together so that all of you would get a chance to actually articulate your dream holiday on Santorini and a couple of you will get an opportunity to live your dream. It was done in the hope that the whole process will make you think about the kind of things you would love to do, see and experience on your dream holiday on Santorini. You will be doing what millions of people around the world only ever dream about…

For my part I very much look forward to reading your essays and being transported into your vision. I also look forward to spending some time with the winners, enjoy showing through you my little village… maybe watching a sunset and sharing a nice dinner by the water  ;-)

It has taken a lot of work to arrange this… now it’s my turn to sit back and let you put your dreamweaver talents to work. 

Good luck to all !

  1. So one must be in a couple at the time? What if there’s no one now, but might be later. Or vice versa? I’ve been in that position with someone just before we left for Santorini. Many years ago. Hmmm. Perhaps you don’t mean to imply it, but this is rather exclusionary.

  2. This can be a great oportunity!!! thank you very much for this contest!!! I’ll send you my essay when it’s ready
