El Greco Hotel

The El Greco Hotel has a boutique feel. It’s home to four good-sized pools that all have something different going on. One even comes with two whirlpool baths for a splash of extra luxury. Elsewhere, children have their own option, and by the main pool, there’s a bar.

The main restaurant lies on a veranda. There’s an American-style breakfast buffet, while Mediterranean dishes sit alongside local specialities at lunch and dinner. Evenings tend to be low-key, but the ultra-contemporary lobby bar is a great spot for a cocktail or two.

Overview of Fira

Santorini is a particularly popular destination with couples and honeymooners. It’s a real Grecian paradise and its whitewashed buildings, blue-domed churches and panoramic cliff edges have to be seen to be believed.

On a holiday to Santorini, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful views and touches of luxury. The food is fantastically fresh, luxurious lodgings like the El Greco Hotel line the coastline and there’s plenty of history to uncover. The island is truly enchanting and it’s no wonder that holidaymakers return to Santorini year after year.

Things to do in Santorini

The El Greco Hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood on the edge of Thira. It’s less than a 10-minute walk to the town centre, and on the way you’ll get amazing views across the Aegean to the neighbouring islands.

In Thira, the ancient, winding streets are lined with Greek tavernas, international restaurants and boutiques. In the evening, the nightlife in Thira is lively, and there are plenty of places to enjoy a drink before you move on to the live jazz venues and nightclubs.

For a spot of relaxation, visit one of Thira’s many spas. If you’d rather get active, you can explore the coastline on a boat tour before nestling into a taverna overlooking the caldera.

Santorini is a magical place for a Greek holiday. You’ll fall in love with the stunning sights and relaxing atmosphere on this tempting island.
