Tucked away from the crowded caldera are the Luxury Villas at Santo Maris, each with its own pool overlooking the velvety Aegean Sea. If – and that’s a big if – you want a change of scenery, head for food-of-the-gods at the hotel restaurant, or pop down the path to Oia. The whitewashed interiors are splashed with the bohemian spirit of thick-set timber furniture, wicker chairs and handmade Cycladic ceramics. Santo Maris is a water-wonderland with four pools to dip in and out of, but by evening the best spot to watch the sun doing its thing is right back on your west-facing terrace.
