If you are tired of hotels, and villas are either expensive or requiring plenty of supplemental services there is a hybrid model for you which I can describe as heaven on earth.
It is the Tsitouras Collection
A modern collection,made of four miniature villas nestled in a historic setting combining the old world and the new. Amenities galore , fabulous service and owners who treat their guests like an extended family. Every place for rent in Santorini brags about their views that is because they all have fantastic views but none like the setting at the Tsitouras. with a large private infinity pool and terraces that provide you with a180 degree of unobstructed breath taking caldera, not shared by tens of hotel guests.A choice of spacious,extremely modernized , with unique flavor villa like rooms in contrast to the usual hotels . A piece of heaven on earth ... If that is not enough for you they have detached villa about 15 feet from the collection that could accommodate 3 couples with the same outstanding views , service and private pool , Eleni and George are the most fantastic, helpful ,gracious and knowledgable hosts. They make you feel as if you are an extension of their family.
For us, and for all mature seasoned travelers , this is the best place to be, period!
