Fodor's Expert Review Zannos Melathron

Pyrgos, Santorini, 84700, Greece

A delightful walled garden is the setting for this magical hideaway high above the island's medieval capital, where comfortable suites in two Cycladic-style manor houses sport stucco and stone walls, vaulted ceilings, antique furnishings, and flowery terraces that look out across the island to the sea. There's lots of old-world elegance, with low-key and attentive service, and among the many amenities are a welcoming pool, excellent wine cellar and restaurant, and an airy pergola where you can relax in the mansion's vineyard.

PROS

  • beautiful setting and surroundings
  • elegant yet comfortable and welcoming
  • surrounded by winding lanes of Pyrgos

CONS

  • in center of island away from sea
  • reached by steps (but porters carry bags)
  • far from caldera views Santorini is famous for
