One of the most beautiful and visually iconic Greek islands, Santorini is a picture-perfect dream for travellers all over the world.
Yet a mere five-minute drive from Santorini’s famous, bustling caldera lies the charming village of Pyrgos. Relatively untouched by the tourist hordes, here you’ll discover Santorini’s true ‘hidden gem’, bursting with culture, history… and four of Santorini’s Conde Nast-voted ten best places to eat!
Pyrgos is also home to Demeter Cave House, a gloriously romantic, adults-only hideaway for two.
Named after the Greek goddess of agriculture and fertility, you can expect the ultimate in Greek style from your stunning cave, with its vaulted Cycladic interiors, authentic curved whitewashed walls, and understated Scandi-chic furnishings.
Relax in the domed, light-flooded open plan living, kitchenette and dining area, filled with plump patterned cushions, bespoke furniture, and hand-made local ceramic lamps for a soft evening glow. There’s even a Smart TV with Netflix, to help cosy evenings in along.
If we’re being honest, we’re not sure you’ll be using the kitchenette all that much, with so many amazing places to eat and drink almost on your doorstep! But if you prefer dining in, you’ll find a gorgeous marble sink and a two-ring hob above pine-clad cupboards, along with a fridge, kettle, toaster… and a Nespresso coffee machine to charge your mornings.
From here, you won’t have to wander too far along to the bedroom, which features a downy kingsize bed that’s perfect for a lazy lie-in, before a sun-drenched wander to the local bakery for a delicious breakfast.Keep reading
