The Vasilicos Caldera Heritage Suites
Written By Lena Harizopoulos
What: 5 spacious, retro-chic Suites with plunge pools gazing at the infinite blue of the Aegian…
Where: ….Located on one of the highest spots of the caldera cliff at Imerovigli right opposite of the very quaint St Nicholas Monastery.
Why Go: For too many reasons: a. for its authentic personality – once a private property now turned into a boutique hotel, it has maintaned something personal about it that the traveler feels and savors it in each corner of the Vasilicos.
You will love the antiques in the interiors mixing so well with the typical Cycladic architecture and chic contemporary aesthetics
b. for the fact that it is a 4 star but you will be pampered in many instances as being in a 5 star. c. for its privacy, you will definitely feel like being completely alone at times, at your own Cycladic summer house. d. For the wines and the Tour de Force tasting menus – you can read more about the hotels food and wine tastings here
In any case whether you are a guest at the hotel or just dining at the restaurant, DO NOT leave Santorini without a visit to the Vassaltis Vineyard, sister to the hotel, one of my favorite vineyards, ideal for small parties or all day local wine sipping and nibbling.
Some local white wine etiquettes are the perfect gift for your loved ones back home, you can buy them from the vineyard and the hotel too – my favorite ones are the “Plethora 2016 Assyrtiko” & The Gramina Cuvee des Vignerons 2017.
Piece De Resistance: The little boutique shop just right next to the hotel with Greek Designer apparel for women
