Megalochori, Santorini, 84700, Greece
This distant and deluxe black-lava outpost is a world unto itself; 42 villas have been built around a beautiful 15th-century winery, almost like a gated community in Florida, all done in a minimalism-meets-Mediterranean leitmotif. SoHo stone tables are set below vintage island-style mirrors, and some guest rooms are done in such shocking blues and pinks that you may soon be reaching for your Visine; all units have lovely outdoor spaces, some with private pools, and enjoy restful vineyard and sea views. The old vaulted dining room is one of the prettiest on Santorini, and the wine cellar, with its many valuable wines, is worth exploration (there are wine tastings nightly). The spacious suites all have marble bathrooms and terraces.
- Vedema is not cheap, but you'll get what you're paying for all the room, food, and service, luxuries
- isolated from island life, although a handy shuttle service ferries you to other parts of the island
Rate Includes: Closed Nov.–Mar. Breakfast
