One of Santorini’s most iconic properties, Canaves Oia Suites is a luxury escape with stunning suites, many complete with private pools. This elegant oasis has a rich history, as the traditional winery of Santorini in the 17th century, ingeniously carved into the island’s dramatic cliff face.

Today, the inimitable Santorini architecture lives on through the property’s minimalist design. You’ll discover spacious and airy accommodations lined with whitewashed walls and arched doorways that spill out onto sprawling terraces. Here, private plunge pools provide front-row views of the dazzling Aegean Sea and Santorini’s famed Caldera.

As the sun dips towards the sea, the Caldera’s rocky cliffs ignite in hues of burnt orange and pink. You can take in this fabled Santorini sunset while lounging poolside with a glass of local Assyrtiko wine. After dark, flickering candles and strings of lights cast a romantic glow to compliment the celestial canopy of stars overhead. This iconic retreat promises endless luxurious surprises.

LGBT Rights in Greece

The state of LGBTQ+ rights has made significant progress in recent years in Greece, although hardships and inequalities still persist in areas outside of the major cities. The country has undergone a widespread legal and societal transformation that has begun to improve the rights and protections for LGBTQ+ individuals.

When it comes to legal advancements, Greece decriminalized same-sex sexual activity in 1951, and in 2015, the Greek Parliament passed a law that recognized civil partnerships for same-sex couples, granting them legal recognition and many of the same rights as married heterosexual couples. However, marriage equality has still not been achieved, as same-sex marriages are not legally recognized.

The legal system in Greece prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment and certain other areas. However, LGBTQ+ individuals continue to face discrimination and social stigma in various aspects of their lives. Homophobic and transphobic attitudes persist in some parts of society, especially in more remote and rural areas.

On a positive note, Athens, the capital city, has a vibrant LGBTQ+ community with a thriving nightlife scene, with an annual Pride parade that attracts thousands of participants from across the globe. LGBTQ+ organizations and advocacy groups in Greece actively work to promote equal rights and social acceptance.

Though LGBTQ+ travelers can enjoy visiting all areas of Greece’s diverse landscape, the gorgeous island of Mykonos is a particular favorite amongst the LGBTQ+ community. In Mykonos, you’ll find a plethora of gay-focused bars and clubs as well as some of Europe’s most beautiful gay beaches.
