Aigialos, in the most desirable location in Fira, quiet and peaceful yet not to far from the hustle and bustle, is a microcosm of the town, a delightful mixture of vernacular and Neoclassical architecture. On the very rim of the caldera, the most spectacular spot in Santorini, overlooking the volcano and Aegean sea, and blessed with the loveliest sunset in the world, Aigialos is an unspoilt neighborhood on the southwest Fira, surrounded by three streets.
Located next to the Byzantine church of Christ (18th century), Aigialos is a complex of 16 luxurious traditional and Neoclassical houses combining the charm of Cycladic architecture with all modern comforts. Set among quaint cobbled walk ways, all l6 houses named after the winds, offer a magnificent view of the caldera, the volcano and the Aegean from their verandas and balconies.
Each house has been remodelled especially for discerning guests, to the highest specifications yet with absolute respect for tradition. The buildings has been restored by master masons using local volcanic stone and coloured lime plaster, using the same techniques as their forefathers. The houses combine the traditional nobility and beauty of the Cycladic architecture with discreet luxury and ever modern convenience.
Tastefully furnished with traditional pieces, antiques, decorated with old Greek Maps (17th- 18th Century), old lamps and some museum pieces. The houses are provided with air conditioning throughout, marble bathrooms, refrigerator-bar, TV, stereophonic music and direct-dial telephone.
