Imerovigli Santorini - Astra Suites Luxury Hotel in Imerovigli Santorini
Imerovigli is the second largest settlement on Santorini after Fira which is the main town and capital, but, nonetheless it maintains a totally quaint character making it the most tranquil of all settlements on the western coast of the island. It is, by far, the most picturesque ‘balcony’ the island has to flaunt, boasting countless specimens of authentic Santorinian architecture and some of the most appreciated views in the world… Views that are made of the heavenly blue of the Aegean Sea, of the ‘satellites’ of Santorini directly opposite which are the volcanic islets, Thirassia island and Aspronissi and, last but not least, of the grandiose Caldera cliff which counts as many as 30 Km in length from one peak to the other. Imerovigli has the added asset of being at the Caldera’s highest point. And this is something which renders it with majestic overall views. According to the personal opinions of many of its visitors, Imerovigli Santorini is the ideal vacation destination where one can fully enjoy the calming aura emitted by the wild and somewhat dramatic natural beauty of the island’s landscapes. What a gorgeous antithesis that makes! The geological phenomenon of the volcano has indeed created a location on earth characterized by breath-taking beauty, which tourists will be able to see manifested on the multiple layers of solidified lava -one on top of the other- upon the Caldera cliffs. Imerovigli village is actually built on the edge of the crater’s inner walls (Caldera) and at 300 meters above sea level. No wonder it gets windy up there!
