Concierge.com's insider take:
About as far as you can get from whitewashed, Cycladian monkish cells, these five suites and a villa are the work of art and antiquities collector Dimitris Tsitouras—whom you can credit with putting what he calls "the Pompeii of Greece" on the upscale travel map in the first place. Collaborating with British interior designer David Hicks, Tsitouras has filled the suites, all featuring typical Santorini vaulted cathedral ceilings, with choice pieces from his collections. Hence you'll find Venetian mirrors and Murano-glass chandeliers, Biedermeier chairs, Russian icons, 16th-century nautical maps, and even a rare Picasso ceramic relief. The result is incredible. An early adopter was Gianni Versace, who rented the whole place for a month—you can extrapolate from there to get a visual. Whether you pick the House of the Sea, House of the Winds, House of Portraits, House of Porcelain, or House of Nureyev suites (each named after the principal theme of the collection within) or the newest addition, the three-bedroom Tsitouras Villa (the family's own house, with the best antiques of all), you'll have plenty of luxuries: CD and DVD players, satellite TV, a free bar, and silver-service breakfast. The friendly staff is headed by Tsitouras's daughter Eleni.
Closed November to January.
