In a Vanity Fair article titled 'John Stamos' Guide to Santorini Greece', Stamos had this to say:

"To get away from it all, I go to Santorini, Greece. One day I would love to retire there, own a restaurant, play music, eat, and make babies....I like to find real mom-and-pop restaurants.

I know how important the values of his birthplace were to him, and I’m always looking to learn more about it and how to incorporate it in my life." - John Stamos in a Vanity Fair article titled 'John Stamos' Guide to Santorini Greece'.
