Situated within the peaceful village of Imerovigli, this villa provides the perfect base from which to explore Santorini's main attractions. One of Greece's most popular islands, Santorini has a fascinating geological history, as it is of volcanic origin. Throughout recorded history, parts of the island have dropped into the sea, while new islands have suddenly appeared off the coast! The island forms a crescent around the Caldera, or cauldron-- the collapsed center of the volcano. It is an enviable view! The village of Imerovigli is actually a quieter extension of Fira, situated higher on the cliff. Fira and Imerovigli are famous for their blue-domed churches and slope houses, located right on the edge of 260 meter high cliffs that drop straight into the sea! Fira is the capital of the island, host to the Archaeological Museum. Its main streets are filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. That's right... Santorini is also famous for its thriving nightlife! Your choices for activities are almost endless... you can relax on red and black sand beaches, take a boat around the islands, hike around the cliffs, go shopping, or even take a ferry to other islands in the area.
