Finding the right hotel for your Santorini stay is not easy with so many places to choose from. Many hotels will say they have a sea view…but be aware, these look to the airport and Aegean sea beyond. They will not have the classic picture postcard view of the sunset and the rim of the volcano (called the Caldera) that people come to Santorini to see. I recommend that you look for somewhere in Imerovigli. This is highest place on Santorini and gets the best sunset and the best views over the Caldera. See my pictures for what I mean.
My wife and I found Villa Lukas in 2007 and have stayed regularly again since then. It is in the most perfect place with every room having that picture postcard, romantic view of the sunset and Caldera. Villa Lukas rooms are a really good size. (All the other places we stayed on Santorini were small and cramped). We stay in the top room and there is a massive private terrace where we eat our breakfast, relax and at the end of the day are perfectly placed to watch that magical sunset.
The staff here work hard to make your stay special and Mr Lukas is a wonderful, friendly host. He arranged our transport from the airport and at the end of our stay down to the port to catch our ferry to Naxos. Inside our room there is a lovely decorated double bed, a cooking area with fridge, sink and utensils. There is also a good air conditioning unit that can set a comfortable temperature for the whole room. The bathroom is normal for Greek places and works well. You control the switch for the hot water so you never run out… a big bonus in Greece! Outside has comfy chairs, table and umbrella. It also has that uninterrupted, special view. This is what you come to Santorini for and Villa Lukas will provide you with this most wonderful setting, your private balcony/terrace and spacious room. My wife and I can recommend Villa Lukas without any hesitation.
