The Lowdown

The dramatic volcanic isle of Santorini is the stuff of many a Greek myth and legend – and with good reason. Here, you’ll find endless blue skies, sunshine from dawn till dusk and spectacular sunsets, featuring mountain peaks silhouetted against a magical interplay of oranges, red and pinks. Perfectly located for taking in these natural wonders, the newly opened Estate 1896 sits in the postcard-perfect hilltop village of Pyrgos.
A former merchant family home and winery built in 1896, this hilltop hideaway is a dazzling collection of whitewashed suites, bursting with character and restored by renowned Greek architects. When you’re not sunning yourself under seemingly endless azure skies in the private courtyard garden, you’ll be able to book yourself an in-room massage, sip a cooling cocktail as the sun sets or cook up a storm on the hotel’s barbecue.
Good to know
This property is adults-only.


Junior suites, measuring in at 300-450 square feet, feature dazzling sea views and rustic, traditional Greek décor, with whitewashed walls and cool tiled floors. The Superior Canava suites, on the other hand, are downright palatial, with 13-ft. ceilings and 860 square feet of space. They also offer an en-suite bathroom (in addition to the main bathroom) and a private outdoor area.


Breakfast is served every morning in the comfort of your suite. Room service is available for other meals, and the hotel staff is happy to point you in the direction of the best eateries around the hotel.


The hotel sits in Santorini’s picturesque former capital of Pyrgos. The highest point on the island, this town affords spectacular views. You can rent a bicycle, go horseback riding in the hills or head down to the coast for snorkeling or diving. Custom excursions can be arranged upon request, such as luxury sailing trips around the volcano, as well as private guided tours around the island by boat or on land.

A nice location to live in Santorini in a village with particular architecture. A successful choice for affordable vacations in the famous island. Spacious villas, with aesthetic details. Rooms are confortable and thoroughly clean. Rich and delicious breakfast with surprises. Excellent hospitality from the owner and the staff. Find the opportunity to visit unknown parts of Santorini with the advice of Nikos. A good starting point for excursions to the entire island.

Excellent choice for holidays on the island. Villas with a special architecture fitted to the existing wine cellars of Santorini. Suites with beautiful decoration and elegant furnishings. A superb yard overlooking the sea where you can enjoy the rich breakfast. The owner and the staff are especially helpful and friendly. I strongly suggest it.
