Overlooking the caldera and the romantic sunsets, the luxury hotels in Greece Santorini are among the best places where you can spend your summer holiday.
What I like most about these hotels is that they are no all-inclusive hotels or mega-resorts, most of them are boutique hotels which gives you the perfect conditions for you to relax.
Most of the hotels are located on the west side of the island in the beautiful towns of Fira, Firostefani, Oia and Imerovigli, all of them overlooking the world-famous caldera.
Just imagine yourself lying in the sun on your own private deck with a cocktail or a beer next to you and treated with the best food and drinks in the world!
It is very easy to understand why we love summer and summer holiday so much.
Going to such amazing places like the ones from above will definitely make the most of our trip!
