Regina Mare Hotel, Imerovigli greece
A well presented property with more of a traditional feel than its ultra-modern neighbours, making it suited to a wider market including families and older guests. Being on the outskirts of the resort means its more peaceful and also offers slightly more space than most, and guests may use the spa at the sister property, the Avaton Resort, a 5 minute walk away.
Not suited to those with mobility problems due to the amount of steps although not as steep as most other properties on the cliff face.
A wide building graduating down the hillside in a typically local style of white washed walls with archways and barrelled roofs. Wooden doors and shutters are painted blue and all rooms have a sea view terrace or balcony of varying sizes. Some standard rooms merge into each other or open onto the pool.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
No access to internal areas other than the reception.
Grounds are crazy-paved throughout with minimal greenery and a few pot plants and urns. The pool has walk-in entry with a narrow surround featuring wooden sunbeds to the front and roomy verandas to the rear. A further sunbathing terrace is on the adjacent lower terrace along with tables and chairs for the dark wooden pool bar which is built into the mountain.
Area Type: Set on the cliff side on the edge of the caldera, 300 metres above sea level, in a quiet location on the outskirts of Imerovigli and surrounded by similarly styled properties. There are a choice of restaurants, bars and small shops within a 10 minute walk, along with the bus stop for Fira, which is 25 minutes away on foot.
