CHARACTER & STYLE
Originally a cluster of village houses, the resort is connected by winding paths with the centrepiece being the 400 year-old wine cellar, which is well preserved. Around this, you'll find the public areas and outdoor swimming pools. The ambience is relaxed and with the small number of accommodation giving a boutique feel, the restaurants and pools are never over-crowded. Enjoy views of the village, vineyards and Aegean Sea.
The hotel runs shuttles to Fira and Perivolos Beach. The concierge team can organise activities such as sailing, horse riding and wine tours. Facilities include two restaurants, a wine bar and a pool bar area, as well as several pools, an attractive spa and a gym in the old wine cellars.

FOOD & DRINK
