Travel Guide

Oia – the small village where the story is set is “right above the clifftop, high above the sea”

Chelidonia Villas, Oia, Santorini – where the author did a lot of research for the novel and is evoked as a stunning setting which will make you need to go there pretty soon after reading about it.

For further reading about the location and the Book recommended by the author – the title  “Oia in Santorini – A journey in time and space by Kadio Kolymva” is a further book to read to take you there.

“Behind, below to either side, the houses of Oia emerged from the cliff in an Escher puzzle of steps and pathways and rooftops and doorways.

The air smelled of grilled meat and oregano and the sun shone lemon-yellow in the sky.”
