Imerovigli, Santorini, South Aegean
Perched on the Imerovigli hillside, the four-pearl Sophia Luxury Suites is a good choice for travelers looking for a quieter location to enjoy those caldera views. It's a convenient base to explore from on foot, being steps from the hiking trail to Oia and a 10-minute walk from Skaros Rock lookout. The nine suites have a rustic-chic style and modern amenities including air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi plus outside space with private plunge pools. All suites have a balcony, though some are shared -- all have ocean views, and some have outdoor plunge pools or hot tubs. The indoor cave pools in some of the bathrooms are a nice touch and the kitchen serves breakfast and dinner directly to your suite.
