A gorgeous and atmospheric mansion on the romantic Greek island of Santorini, including spa treats and an optional Honeymoon suite with Jacuzzi

Zannos Melathron is set on a hillside in the picturesque village of Pyrgos - one of the highest, most peaceful and relatively tourist-free points on the Greek island of Santorini. This five-star boutique hotel's romantic history tells the tale of a grand 19th-century mansion that was built by local ship-owner and wine magnate Michael Zannos. It was given to his daughter as a wedding present, along with the adjoining 18th-century renaissance villa.

It was only fairly recently that this historic wedding gift was converted into a luxury hotel. Yannis Tseklenis was responsible for its transformation - one of Greece's best-known designers, he was described by Tatler magazine as being "the Philippe Starck of Greek contemporary fashionability". The hotel hasn't been polished and pimped-up to within an inch of its life, leaving the original building unrecognisable. Instead, it's been thoughtfully renovated to ensure that the overall feel is both authentic and up-to-date.

Think exposed stone-walled hallways with vaulted ceilings, pale wooden floorboards, magnificent ceiling frescoes, beautiful antiques and elegant sitting rooms in what was the original mansion. One of the grand sitting rooms opens out onto the veranda, and, from there, you'll have beautiful views of the whole island from your bird's nest (or castle in the sky?) at the top of the island.

Zannos Melathron also has an excellent restaurant with an outdoor terrace, a wine cellar with an unrivalled selection of wines, a spa and an outdoor swimming pool. This has to be one of the most romantic and relaxing places to stay for a quiet escape in a traditional village setting, undisturbed by throngs of tourists. As the sun sets, dine in an atmospheric space surrounded by the flicker of candlelight, with views of the twinkling lights of the towns beyond.

Good to know

Please note that a local tax of €4 per person, per night is payable at the hotel upon check-out.


The hotel's suites have been simply but thoughtfully decorated to retain original features, such as vaulted ceilings and unusual plans. Designed to have a rustic and traditional feel, they have en-suite bathrooms and separate comfortable seating areas, with soft lighting from lamps, plus the odd antique furnishing. The luxurious baths are marble-clad. Opt for a Junior suite with its shared veranda, or a Honeymoon suite for a courtyard and the ultimate luxury of your own private veranda and outdoor Jacuzzi to bubble away in.

The hotel's restaurant serves up the very best of local gastronomic flavours throughout the day, whether you're in the mood for a light bite or something more substantial. Eat in the atmospheric small restaurant with exposed stone walls and romantic candle-lit glow, have breakfast delivered to your room, or dine out on the terrace and take in the wonderful island views from your prime spot as King and Queen of the castle. Wine tasting is available in the on-site cellar.


With one of the highest points on the island, there's no vehicle access to the hotel and you'll need to walk up and down a steep hill (or take a donkey ride) to reach a taxi service in the town just down the hill. Definitely worth noting for the less mobile.

The traditional small village of Pyrgos is almost tourist-free and is an ideal setting for an authentic Santorini experience. For more restaurant and shopping options, head to the town of Fira, which is a short drive or taxi ride away. Other sights to see nearby include the Greek Orthodox Church dedicated to The Virgin Mary, the Venetian castle of 'Kastelli' and the Byzantine Museum. There is also the Profitis Elias Monastery with its icon collection and the black sand beaches and clear waters around the island - perfect for a refreshing dip to cool off in.
