I have no words to describe the feeling of this little palace. As a typical Relais & Chateaux, Zannos hotel has the proper standards, luxury, grandeur, privacy, mystery and exceptional restaurant. Plus panoramic view of the island since it is located at Pyrgos village, second highest spot after the monastery of Profitis Ilias.
Pyrgos is one of the most attractive villages of Santorini located north of the capital Fira town. Chatting with local people which have many stories to tell, you hear myths and legends creating a mysterious atmosphere..
I would recommend it for couples seeking a romantic hideaway with privacy and peacefulness.
The experience in few sentences:
Large suites with warm colors, kingsize beds, classic interiors and deluxe room amenities. A welcome bottle of Santorinian wine from Sigalas winery which is the most famous wine maker of Santorini. Breakfast at the restaurant with unforgettable view of Santorini accompanied by summer jazz tunes. The cuisine was typical Relais & Châteaux, gourmet Greek traditional blend of Santorinian and Cretan dishes.
The service was of 5 Star level with the feeling of the warm treatment of having friends at home.
The manager, Alexandros was not just a hotel manager but also a receptionist, a maître, a sommelier, a storyteller, a host, and a travel guide. All in one!
Must do in the Hotel:
The wine tasting experience hosted by Alexandros explaining the origins of the wine varieties and the Santorinian winery tradition.
Must visit near the hotel:
The Castle called “Kasteli” it is few steps from the Hotel. Also visit the Santo Wines center of wine tourism to experience a wine tour and buy wines and other local products!
