The highlight of our visit to Greece was our stay at the Remezzo in the village of Imerovigli on Santorini. We were upgraded to a nicer room when we arrived at no extra cost; this was a small apartment with a sitting room, bedroom and a tiny kitchen area. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom had a large jacuzzi (a bit surprising since fresh water is not abundant on the island). The view out the front window and door is of a terrace with the pool and beyond it the caldera of Santorini. If the weather had been willing we'd have seen the famous Santorini sunsets over the caldera, without having to go anywhere. Breakfast was abundant and tasty. We were there over Greek Easter and were invited to join the family for the traditional roast lamb dinner, which we did. Everyone was very friendly and made us as welcome as possible. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay, and the price was very reasonable.
Tip: bring a few packets of tea or coffee, sugar, etc as the kitchen has dishes and pots but no condiments or beverages in the room (other than a bottle of water in the mini fridge). There is a local mini mart with wine, sodas, and souvenirs, but not much else. If you are used to an early breakfast and coffee, be aware the hotel breakfast is not served until 9am.
The walk from Imerovigli to central Fira is an interesting 40 minutes; the village of Imerovigli becomes Firastephani and then Fira, without much break between them. A more remote walk is the other direction, to Oia on the northern tip; allow 2 hours for that one way, and have study shoes and if the winds are strong (they certainly were during our visit) a trekking pole is a good idea.
