I went to Santorini for the first time last year and I finally understood why the island is so famous. I was fascinated by the Greek islands even before that, but I had never before went as deep into the sea as where the Cyclades are situated and my impressions of these famous Greek islands were reduced to a visit at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens, the theory that the island of Thira is the long lost Atlantis and to many scenic pictures and postcards from Naxos, Paros and Santorini.

Well, I must admit that Santorini meets all expectations and I can definitely say that the pictures did not lie. The island impressed me mostly with its great view of the caldera and the ability of the Greek hoteliers to make the most of this natural phenomenon. The new buildings follow the old architectural traditions – the clean white walls are whitewashed every spring, the ceilings are vaulted and a lot of the rooms dug into the ground and have small windows to escape from the summer heat and the harsh winds. Stairs are numerous, there are also countless different levels and steep slopes, but all this makes the island villages particularly picturesque and the holiday there is a true feast for the eyes of everyone.

The architecture follows the old traditions and doesn’t change the appearance of the settlements on the island, but that does not mean that the interiors also respect this tradition. On the contrary, best hotels rely more on a combination of old and new – just as they do in Sophia Suites in Imerovigli, to find the perfect combination of luxury and serenity.

The buildings are built more than 150 years by a Turkish merchant who falls in love with the island and the Greek culture there and even saves multiple antique objects ​​found during the original construction. The mansion has been renovated this year, preserving the architectural features of the buildings, but turning them into a luxury hotel. You can dive into a small pool with a picturesque view of the caldera, or even rent an apartment with its own indoor swimming pool reminiscent of a cave. Old wooden ceilings are combined with the iconic Eames lounge chair, the freshly whitewashed walls make a contrast with the Hans Wegner Shell Chair and the lamps by Ay Illuminate – a perfect combination of old and new in a truly beautiful place.

Photos are taken from the hotel’s website, but I would recommend you to look at those of Sara Medina Lind, who was recently a guest of the hotel, and she also is a really good photographer. I wish all of you an opportunity to spend a holiday there! (link to the booking page of the hotel).

Coming soon a few ideas of what you can see on Santorini but the view from the hotel window 🙂
