AGHIOS ARTEMIOS Traditional Houses
Vourvoulos, East Imerovigli, Santorini, Cyclades
A rare jewel of the Cyclades, Santorini is the most spectacular of the Aegean islands. Four kilometers east of Fira, the island's capital, on the way to Oia, the traditional guest house, Aghios Artemios, opens its doors to the vaulted rooms that have been renovated in a surprising manner and have been transformed into quaint houses, surrounded by a space of unique beauty, overlooking the blue of the Aegean Sea. A warm welcome from its owners who take care of the comfort of their guests.
Perfectly in tune with the typical Cycladic surroundings, this traditional cave residence of the 15th century, restored with full respect to the traditions and the local architecture, now houses stylish studios and suites offering an aura of coolness and tranquility.
In the large paved courtyard, an all-white church, perfectly preserved, gives the place an atmosphere of devotion and at the same time relaxing. The church can be used for weddings and christenings.
The space is so fabulous, as the owners have created beautiful indoor and outdoor facilities, that caters for so much: for unforgettable social events, art exhibitions or fashion photography, without causing the slightest inconvenience to the guests of the houses.
Breakfast is prepared with care by the owners and is served buffet-style in the breakfast room or terrace with a view to the sea.
The pool area is beautifully landscaped with a pool-bar, sun beds and sun umbrellas so that you can enjoy a refreshing swim with a view to the sea and have lunch or a drink, depending on your mood.
