We stayed at Aigialos in the Voreas house for one night in July, and wished we could have stayed for longer. The view from our balcony was stunning, the house itself was beautifully furnished in a traditional fashion, with two bedrooms, two (small) bathrooms, a kitchenette and a living area. We had our dinner and breakfast served on the verandah and couldn't have spent a more perfect last night in Greece. We overlooked the oldest church in Santorini and the house itself was part of the monastery, so if you are interested in the historical and cultural aspects of the island, this is a perfect place to really experience the atmosphere. The staff and service were excellent.
The only negative - a small point which didn't really detract from the experience - is that the walking track runs past the bedroom windows. Fortunately, being at the far end of Fira, it is not too busy, but we were woken a couple of times by some noisy groups.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Aigialos Collection consists of sixteen, renovated neoclassical houses that were originally the fine homes of the island's noble captain families. The architecture and design of the houses bring to life the traditional way of life of the island's nobility. Restored to perfection by master masons using local volcanic stone and coloured lime plaster, the houses are linked by cobbled walkways. Situated on the rim of the caldera, sheer cliffs that rise from the sea, the hotel overlooks the island's famed volcano. ... more less
