The Greek isle of Santorini rests on the rim of a giant submerged caldera, overlooking the infinite blue of the Aegean Sea. Here, in the cliff-side town of Fira, guests luxuriate in picture-postcard environs at the Aigialos Hotel.
Built around an eighteenth-century mansion, the hotel combines authentic Cycladic architecture with every modern comfort. Quaint cobbled walkways lead to the 16 villas. Completely renovated, and named for the gentle winds that sweep across the island, all have private verandas, balconies, or terraces.
