Tsitouras Collection, Firostefani on Santorini

Firostefani cliff face, next to St. Mark's, Firostefani, Santorini, 84700, Greece

Architectural Digest–worthy decor and earthy Cycladic charm blend together from what is truly Santorinian splendor; think sparkling white cubes with volcanic stone trimmings surrounding an 18th-century mansion. Interiors are picturesquely dotted with domes, skylights, and interior windows, and the decor is a fantasia of Chippendale armchairs, ancient amphorae, Byzantine icons, Corfiot mariner's chests, Picasso ceramics, and gilt-framed engravings; the glowing color schemes were cooked up by legendary British designer David Hicks. The showpiece is the "House of the Winds," where the grand, double-height, cathedral-roofed living room shimmers with elegant antiques and robin's-egg-blue walls. The elegant communal terrace overlooks the caldera, but many choose to enjoy dinner on their own terraces. Breakfast, included, lasts all day.

  • beautiful design
  • caldera views
  • lots of privacy

CONS
