La Maltese, Imerovigli, Santorini
Tel: 30 22860 24701
Concierge.com's insider take:
This neoclassical mansion, atop Imerovigli village overlooking the caldera, has nine rooms (four can be combined and rented as a private villa). The rooms come in shades of ocher, raspberry or apple, and are packed with antiques and heraldic flourishes. In addition to offering AC and standard in-room electronics (except Internet), the full-service hotel has a modern spa-hammam. Staff can charter you a yacht, chauffeur you a car, pilot you a helicopter, or organize you a wedding, which is something it frequently does. The restaurant, La Maltese Gourmet, is exclusive and good, and there are daily wine tastings for guests.
Closed October to March.
