With Santorini being one of Greece’s most popular islands, escaping the crowds can be tricky. Yet at Canaves Oia Epitome, you may feel you have this enchanting island almost entirely to yourself. This all-villa luxury hotel is just outside the town of Oia and an almost zen-like calm is the order of the day. As the evening unfolds, the hotel plays its trump card – the best sunset views in Oia. There is plenty to love at Canaves Oia Epitome, from the villa interiors to the innovative rooftop terraces, the contemporary design which captures the hues offthe surrounding volcanic landscape. Pick out your perfect lounge area and spend the day by the pool, with private pools in every villa do you not even need to leave your room. Alternatively, wander down to Katharos beach or hop on the shuttle into Oia. The morning and evening in the village are quietest giving you plenty of space to snap photos of blue-domed churches and narrow streets winding up the volcanic cliffs.

Reasons we love Epitome

  • One of the most exclusive and private spots on the island, set back from the crowds in Oia
  • Every room has its own heated pool or plunge pool but there is also a large infinity pool by the bar
  • Start the day with a champagne breakfast of fresh pastries, pies, Greek yoghurt with granola and made-to-order eggs on crusty sourdough with tomato and creamy feta
