La Maltese EstateSantorini, Greece
Legendary sunsets, as beautiful as a dream, will take your breathe away as they fall over the equally gorgeous La Maltese Estate in Imerovigli, Santorini. Dramatically set 250 meters above the Aegean, at the edge of the caldera of this famous Greek island, this all-suite estate effortlessly combines the modern and the mythical with a location unlike any other. With an elegant sophistication and opulence, each apartment-style suite is part old world charm and part contemporary oasis. Rich antique furniture and ornate four-poster beds and accents contrast wonderfully with the flowing Cycladic style to create a charmingly warm, ambient space that instantly soothes and comforts. Step out through large French doors to a terrace, complete with majestic views and invitingly plush sunbeds. A gem of Santorini, La Maltese Estate invites you to join the tranquil flow of the island, and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Aegean.
Sink into comfort in the bright morning light, stretched out next to the pool, after indulging in a full body treatment at the Spa. Sip a cocktail and cool off with a dip in the pool before heading out to sail around the caldera and into the sea on a luxurious yacht cruise. Take an amazing private helicopter tour above the island, watching the Aegean stretch into the distance, then explore Santorini up close. Visit Kamari and hike to the site of Ancient Thera, founded in the 9th century BC, then be amazed by the ancient sophistication found at the archaeological site of Akrotiri. Explore the ocean depths first hand with a caldera dive that is truly stunning, passing over reefs, through caverns, and along Palea Kameni and Nea Kameni, the two "new" volcanic islands in the center. Hike from the nearby capital of Fira, passing through Imerovigli, on the way to Oia to experience a sunset that has captivated people for thousands of years. Afterwards, return to the estate for a romantic candlelight dinner and relax on the terrace. Over exceptional seasonal Greek cuisine that will leave your palate craving another taste, sip a glass of fine local wine and sink into the night's deep velvety romance at La Maltese Estate.
