Honeymoon Petra Villas, Imerovigli greece
Offers 2 different accommodation styles in a central location close to amenities, both with breathtaking views. The traditional building is famous for being featured in many of the postcards found all over Greece showing a typical white washed building with blue woodwork and furnishings and the Petra is known for its environmental style, being built from volcanic rock with the largest pool on the cliff face and dramatic terraces.
Both are charming with strong individual characters and are suitable for adults of all ages and families, although not for those with walking difficulties or a fear of heights.
The traditional building is built in a typical local style with angular white blocks spread above the cliff side and blue wooden shutters and doors. Adjacent is the original family home, now part of the accommodation which consists of a square building in pale terracotta. Balconies vary in size and are either concrete or wooden fronted.
The Petra wing blends in completely with its environment and is built from dark volcanic rock with wooden features and more spacious balconies. Both properties are over 4 levels.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
The small reception is located at the entrance to the traditional block. All other facilities are at Petra with a breakfast room and piano bar built in a cave-like dwelling, bright, modern and fresh with white walls, pale wooden furnishings, plasma TV and pot plants adding some colour.
Grounds at the Traditional building are compact with steps leading to all rooms adorned with terracotta urns and brightly coloured flowers.
At Petra, multi-terraced green rock gardens surround all levels. Spacious pool is located here with walk-in entry, surrounding the unusually designed pool bar built from angled wood and stone which continues into the pool. Pool has padded sunbeds with 3 further sunbathing terraces below, some with canopied double loungers.
Various seating terraces with good views adorn the grounds, one with an open barbecue area.
Area Type: In the centre of Imerovigli, surrounded by similarly sized properties with views along the coast and over the caldera. The 2 buildings are 50 metres apart, the Traditional wing is situated above the cliff walkway and closer to the main square, and the Petra wing is below, built into the rock face. There are a choice of restaurants, bars and small shops within a few minutes’ walk, along with the bus stop for Fira, a 15 minute walk away.
