Grace Santorini Hotel
Santorini, known for its idyllic landscapes and seascapes, is one of the most romantic destinations in all of Greece. As you walk through the rocky steps around the island, you can marvel at the blue and white houses that depict architectural tradition and timelessness. Feel the gentle sea breeze on your skin, and don’t worry about your letting your hair down.
Of course, you can’t leave Santorini without a photo next to one of those famed sunsets. For an impressive view minus the huge crowds, we suggest Imerovigli, a quiet village often called “the balcony of the Aegean,” as it faces the Aegean Sea on the northwest coast. From there, another nearby cultural spot is Skaros Rock, a headland wherein one will notice what remains of a Venetian castle destroyed by an earthquake in the 19th century. Imerovigli also happens to be where you’ll find Grace Santorini Hotel, our choice for luxury accommodations on the island.
Grace Santorini is perched above the Caldera, a basin of seawater with two small volcanic islands in the middle. Recognized in the Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2012 as the best location in Europe, the hotel continues to provide world-class hospitality in an unforgettable setting.
Outside The Villa, double-level seating areas are found by the heated pool, outdoor fireplace, and gazebo. With your beloved travel companions, you can watch the clouds, soak up the sun, stargaze, or pop open a bottle of wine from the room’s carefully stocked cellar. With so many options here, you might not even leave the suite during your stay. But we highly recommend that you do. No, really. Don a pretty sundress, get out, and explore!
