Rocabella Santorini is built the crest of the sheer caldera cliffs overlooking the clear blue Aegean Sea just over a kilometre north of Imerovigli, a small traditional village with less than 500 inhabitants situated to the north of Fira, the capital city of the mesmerizing island of Santorini. Santorini is an island that poets have written about, artists attempt to capture its beauty, but nothing can quite describe the reality of the unsurpassed magic of this tiny Greek island in the Aegean Sea. So rich in history and steeped in myth, it is situated on the southern east tip of the Cyclades cluster of islands. Santorini experienced a catastrophic volcanic event in 1500 BC but today it is ranked as one of the world’s top destinations. With its stone and white-washed buildings, black volcanic beaches and hot desert climate, it is as near to an unspoilt paradise as one can get.
Imerovigli is famous for its picturesque cave houses, its small churches and its cobbled streets, but most of all for the stunning sunsets. Built on a higher cliff with small narrow streets, Imerovigli is really an extension of Fira as it is only a couple of kilometres or so away. Magnificent panoramic views of the 18 km long caldera and Santorini’s spectacular sunsets are to be had.
Rocabella is one of the more popular hotels on Santorini and has built a reputation on its warm hospitality which goes a long way in making your stay feel really welcoming and special.
