Carved into the cliffside amongst the other iconic whitewashed buildings in the town of Oia, this grand Neoclassical mansion has breath-taking views of the caldera and Aegean Sea. At sunset, the huge terrace with its ornate white balustrades is the place to soak up the incredible panoramas. There’s also a private hot tub, so you don’t need to go far to take a refreshing dip. Various other charming balconies offer views over Oia’s picture-perfect windmills and blue-domed churches. Emerald dates back to 1840 and has a distinctive pastel blue and peach façade. It has been sensitively restored to add modern comforts to its original charm. There’s an elegant lounge with arched ceilings and full-length windows, plus a formal dining room and a useful study. A gourmet kitchen has everything you’ll need to recreate mouth-watering local dishes. Two cosy bedrooms (one double with private terrace, one double/twin) on the top level share a bathroom, while on the ground level, two further bedrooms (the master with private terrace, and a double/twin) have their own ensuite bathrooms for a little extra privacy. Emerald comes with all the ingredients needed for a stylish stay in Santorini.
